What to wear to celebrate one's anniversary? Što nositi za proslavu svoje godišnjice?


You know those days when all the troubles seem so far way and happiness seems to be resting on your fingertips? As I’m sitting there, I know it is one of those days. The river Buna flows calmly by, the sun is shining and this Summer day feels absolutely perfect. Caught in the river magic, I watch time stand still for a second. There is magic in this place, of that I'm sure. Nevertheless, it is not only about that. True, I always enjoy being here, but today there is an addition reason to be joyous. Today is a day of celebration. As much as I believe that we should celebrate love every day, I still like anniversaries. The calmness of that special day. It reminds me of holidays and Christmas. There is something about having a date set up for happiness. Something calming and at the same time also festive. Akin to the feeling of relaxation that the weekend brings. Speaking of the weekend, this is a pretty good place to spend one. Looking for a weekend getaway? If you’re anywhere near Mostar (or you don't mind getting there), I would recommend you explore Buna river a bit. You can see my old posts about it here, here, here , here and here


Znate one dane kada se čini da su sve brige daleko i da se sreće odmara na vrhovima naših prstiju. Dok sjedim tamo, znam da je to jedan od onih dana. Rijeka Buna teče mirno pored nas, sunce sija, a ovaj ljetni dan je, imam osjećaj, sasvim savršen. Uhvaćena u čaroliji rijeke, gledam kako vrijeme stoji mirno na tren. Ima čarolije na ovom mjestu, u to sam sigurna.Ipak, ovdje se ne radi samo o tome. Uvijek volim biti ovdje, ali danas postoji dodatan razlog za radost. Danas je dan za slavlje. Koliko god vjerujem da ljubav treba slaviti svaki dan, još uvijek volim godišnjice. Osjećaj smirenosti na taj dan. Podsjeća me to na praznike i Božić. Ima nešto u tome da postoji određeni dan za sreću. Nešto smirujuće, a u isto vrijeme i veselo. Slično osjećaju opuštanja koje donosi vikend.  Kad smo već kod vikenda, ovo je poprilično dobro mjesto za provesti vikend. Tražite li gdje biste za vikend? Ako ste u blizini Mostara ili vam nije teško tamo otići, preporučila bi vam da istražite rijeku Bunu. Možete vidjeti moje stare objave o njoj ovdje, ovdje, ovdje, ovdje i ovdje



















denim vest/ prsluk od jeansa: Azel
maxi dress/ duga haljina: old/stara
heels/pete: old/stare






























These photographs were taken in Villa Ivankovich (their official site), where the two of us celebrated our wedding anniversary last week. The meal was nothing special, but that didn’t seem very important at the time. We often go there for drinks as the location is really dreamy. I don't remember eating here very often, just a few times, but I think the food used to be better. Besides the restaurant and the coffee bar, you can also rent rooms in this villa( if you're looking for a place to stay in this area you can keep it in mind).  As I said, we had a lovley time there last week. A bit later on that day, we moved to another restaurant, but about that I shall write tomorrow. Let's talk about what I wore. For some reason, when Autumn starts approaching, I feel like wearing long boho dresses all the time. On this particular day, I wanted to look dressed up, but at the same time I didn't want to go over the top, so I dressed down this maxi dress with a denim vest. I really liked this outfit, it was comfortable and I felt very glam wearing it.

Ove fotografije su uslikane u Villi Ivanković (njihova službena stranica), gdje smo nas dvoje slavili godišnjicu vjenčanja prošloga tjedna. Hrana nije bila ništa posebno, ali to mi se nije činilo posebno važnim. Često tamo odemo na piće jer je lokacija stvarno bajkovita. Ne sjećam se da sam ovdje često jela, možda samo par put, ali mislim da je hrana prije bila bolja. Osim restorana i kafića, tu se mogu i iznajmiti sobe ( ako tražite mjesto gdje biste odsjeli). Kao što sam rekla, lijepo nam je bilo tamo prošloga tjedna. Malo kasnije toga dana, preselili smo u drugi restoran, ali o tome ću pisati sutra. Sada nešto o tome što sam nosila. Iz nekoga razloga, kako se Jesen približava meni se sve više nose duge haljine u boemskom stilu. Ovaj dan, željela sam izgledati dotjerano ali opet nisam htjela pretjerati, pa sam dugu haljinu uskladila s prslukom od jeansa. Jako mi se svidjela ova kombinacija, bila je jako udobna i dobro sam se osjećala u njoj.

  29. Srećna godišnjica! Neka ih bude još mnooogo! :) Slažem se po pitanju slavljenja ljubavi. Iako je nešto u čemu treba uživati svakodnevno i biti svestan te sreće i privilegije, isto tako je lepo imati i slaviti te posebne dane jer da su svi takvi, na kraju ih ne bismo cenili. Mesto očarava i deluje kao savršena lokacija za tako lep povod. Ti izgledaš kao moderna verzija neke starogrčke boginje. Mislim da su elegantnije haljine kao stvorene za teksas prsluke/jakne i taj spoj posebnog, a opuštenog izdanja. Frizura ti stoji prelepo, a prsten je očaravajuć. Sve u svemu - bajka! <3

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

HOW TO STYLE RED CLOTHING ITEMS FOR WINTER?

A few posts ago (yes, bloggers calculate time in post activity), I wrote about red accessories for winter but I also wanted to write about red clothing items you can wear this time of year. In fact, I was planning to write a big post about wearing red in winter but I realized that I need to split it in two because it was too long. Apparently, I have a lot to say about why wearing red in winter is a good idea. So, today I'll basically post the part two of my red in winter fashion musings. Red is a bold, energetic and dramatic colour. If you ask me, wearing red is a great way to invoke good luck in our new year. You can pair red with neutral colours to tone it down or with vibrant ones to make your outfits even more noticeable. Lunar Year festivities are a perfect time to embrace the red clothing items. Moreover, Valentine's Day is not too far off either. If you're looking for some winter red outfit inspiration, you have come to the right place. HOW TO WEAR RED IN WINTER?   My…

READING UPDATE: KAZUO ISHIGURO, THE BURIED GIANT AND MORE

Hello dear readers, how's life treating you? It's time for another reading update on my blog. You guys know that I'm a bookworm and a reading addict, right? Today I have a couple of book reviews to share with you. I'll be reviewing four books (more precisely: two novels and two short story collections). It's a mixed crowd of writers that I'm reviewing, from Nobel winning Kazuo Ishiguro to some other well known authors. So, let's get started. Scroll down to read my opinion of these books.  THE BURIED GIANT, A NOVEL BY KAZUO ISHIGURO 5/5 Having seen a fascinating interview with mr. Ishiguro about this very book, I had high expectations for The Buried Giant. I'm happy to report that my expectations were fulfilled. Once again, Kazuo Ishiguro impressed me his subtle and beautiful writing. This novel is a masterpiece. The Buried Giant is very moving tale of an elderly couple in search for their lost past. Axl and Beatrix share a strong connection, but just lik…

VISITING BASINA BAY ON ISLAND HVAR, CROATIA

Weekends are a great time to get proactive about our health and use our free time to go hiking & trekking. Spending time outdoors is quite beneficial for our health. I have written about this topic a number of times on my blog. Those of you who are regular readers know that I like nothing better than exploring the area I live in on foot. Hiking can be such a healthy and inspirational activity and the best thing is that it doesn't cost a thing. Since I have been living on island Hvar these past few months, I have tried to take every opportunity to explore this magical island. Recently I have discovered bay Basina. It is a small bay, very close to Vrboska  and Jelsa. This was my first visit to this beautiful bay. I discovered it quite by chance. Island Hvar has so many amazing beaches and secluded bays to offer. Despite spending most of my summers here, I still have so much to discover.  Basina bay is a beautiful place, no doubt about it. There are so many beautiful bays on isl…
