Summertime in Mostar (black and white dress) / Ljeto u Mostaru (crno bijela haljina)


Sunny summer days in Mostar city. Simple pleasures in life. The smell of pine trees in the air. (They have a special scent during the Summer. Have you ever noticed that?) Strolling around the city with my significant other.  A cup of coffee enjoyed in good company. Simply daily rituals that can be so meaningful. Admiring street air. Finding a reason to smile because as Claudio Baglioni sings life is know (youtube link here). Black and white dress worn with colourful sandals (wedges) because as you all know I'm addicted to colours. A simple summer outfit for a simple summer day. A bit of simplicity and putting our mind to rest. Sometimes it is all we need. La vita è adesso.

Sunčani ljetni dani u Mostaru. Jednostavni životni užici. Miris borova u zraku. ( Imaju poseban miris ljeti. Jeste li to ikad primijetili?) Šetnja gradom sa drugom polovicom. Šalica kave u dobrom društvu.  Jednostavni dnevni ritualni koji mogu biti tako značajni. Divljenje uličnoj umjetnosti. Pronalaženje razloga za osmijeh jer kao što Claudio Baglioni pjeva, život je sada (youtube poveznica ovdje). Crno bijela haljina, ali nošena s šarenim sandalama s punom petom jer kao što znate ovisna sam o boji. Jednostavna ljetna kombinacija za jednostavan ljetni dan. Malo jednostavnosti i odmaranje misli. Ponekad je to sve što trebamo. La vita è adesso.

  4. Super ti stoji haljinica i šarene sandale su odličan dodatak! :) I potpisujem, život je ovdje i sada, treba uživati u sitnicama i ne opterećivati se dalekom budućnosti ili stvarima na koje ne možemo utjecati. Želim ti divan dan! :)

  11. Odlična haljina :) Jednostavna a opet toliko efektna! Ipak, sviđa mi se što si unijela dašak boje u kombinaciju te je učinila 100 posto svojom! Ulična umjetnost je uvijek inspirativna! :*

  12. You are so right, dear Ivana, the simple things in life are the ones that bring more joy, more happiness, for sure! I think Mostar looks very nice and I loved the painted walls, so artistic! I loved your black and white dress and I liked the colorful sandals very much - a nice touch, pop of color! You look very beautiful! I hope you have a very lovely week!

  13. Ne mogu se više složiti sa svime napisanim. Takve sitnice su zapravo sve što nam treba, makar nama koji cenimo takve trenutke i radujemo se istim ;)
    Slike su fenomenalne i mnogo je dobra kombinacija crno bele haljine i grafita. Sad si me podsetila na zid pored kojeg prolazi autobus kojim idem na plažu. Svi grafiti su prava umetnost i jako mi liče na te sa tvojih slika. Uvek kažem kako hoću da odem tamo namenski da se slikam :)
    Da se vratim na tebe, ta haljina ti stoji savršeno, a baš kako kaže Ivana, sa sandalicama si učinila da kombinacija bude baš TI. Svako može da nosi crno belo, a svoj lični pečat retko ko ostavlja na način poput tebe. Znaš već da mi je tvoj stil neiscrpno inspirativan i zanimljiv :)

  21. I can imagine the smell pine trees even though we don't have temperate pine trees here. Just the tropical ones.

    I like monochrome outfits especially for work. You look great here. Very professional and executive looking.

    Playing the music that you've linked here while typing this. I don't understand the language but it makes me very happy.

  28. WOW! I really loved this OOTD post, you are an artist and I'm not talking just about your illustrations, when it comes to fashion you really know how to rock whatever you want ;)

    I loved the story behind the dress because it is true: the most beautiful moments in life are behind the simple things, a cup of coffee, a stroll around a new place and the nature :) Sometimes we forget about that and everything seems too difficult but is NOT! I also loved the background in your pictures and the dress is so versatile, I'm sure you'll be able to rock it in many ways with different accessories and in different ocassions :D

WHAT IS AN IDEAL MAXI DRESS FOR A SUMMER VACATION?

Hello, lovely readers! Summer is finally here. Are you as excited about summer as I am? Today I'm back with another summer styling, and this time it's about a white floral maxi dress. I love white items for the summer, and if they come with a floral print even better. If you read my last post, you know that I decided to welcome the summer in bay Torac (on island Hvar, Croatia). I told you that one of the first things I packed was a yellow jumpsuit as it is a good vacay item and so easy to throw on when you're at the beach. Another essential vacation classic is a maxi dress. This white maxi dress with a cute floral print proved to be the perfect vacation item because it is so easy to dress up and down (for example, here you can see how I styled this maxi with kitten heels). I actually got this white maxi dress as a part of a collaboration review post last year. Today you can see me wearing it in a more dressed down summer version, with tropical print sandals (same here) an…

STYLING A YELLOW JUMPSUIT FOR SUMMER ( BAY TORAC, ISLAND HVAR)

How to style a yellow floral jumpsuit for summer? You know when I packed for island Hvar (Croatia), this yellow jumpsuit was one of the first things I packed. I don't wear jumpsuits and playsuits that often during the colder months but I opt for them often enough when it gets warmer. One great thing about a floral jumpsuit is that it is a statement piece on its own. That means that styling it is quite easy. Another advantage of this kind of garment is that you can easily dressed up or down. I wore this yellow jumpsuit to beach, so I dressed it down with a beach bag and white sandals. If I were to dress it up, I would probably pair it with heels (as I did here and here). 
Jumpsuits are simply ideal for vacation wear. They are so easy to thrown on. I like to wear them over swimsuits for that beach chic look. I got this jumpsuit in a collaboration last year, and I'm still not bored of it. I definitely plan to wear it a lot for my island Hvar trip. Yellow is such a great colour f…

A PRINTED DRESS FOR CATCHING A FERRY IN SUCURAJ, ISLAND HVAR (CROATIA)

What to wear when you're travelling? In summer, I often opt for print dresses because they are fun and seem to go well with anything. I packed quite a few printed dresses for my visit to island Hvar (Croatia). As long as the dresses are comfortable, they are my 'go to' travel outfit. This mixed print dress is one of my favourite travel summer dresses. You have seen me wear it a lot on this blog, especially for hiking and sightseeing (and you know I believe in shopping one's closet). It's a great day to night dress as well, quite easy to dress up and down. My outfit proposal of the day is more casual in tone so you could said that I dressed the dress down. The shoes I choose to go along with this dress are printed sandals from Art brand. I bought them when I was in Split last spring and they're super comfortable (not sponsored).  I also wore a backpack because they are more practical for travelling. I have quite a pragmatic mind when it comes to fashion, and I …
