Wearing black and white, but feeling blue.



I wore this outfit a day before Christmas. I think I was inspired by an all white outfit that I saw Idu (from fashionably Idu) wear. I thought to myself, why not wear something white myself? I remembered this vintage skirt that used to be too big for me, but since I gained weight, it fits just perfectly. Anyhow, I came up with this (predominately) black and white look. It was a nice enough outfit, the only problem was that I was too hot. Yes, it was about 16 degrees in Mostar. In fact, that is the reason why my coat isn't buttoned up on most of these photos- I'm not the type to unbutton my coat just to show what I'm wearing underneath. My low tolerance to cold is legendary. However, the Winter has been very mild lately. I probably wouldn't have been cold even if I didn't wear a coat. I might have mentioned that I celebrated Christmas in Mostar, as I usually do.  Yesterday I went to Split but I returned to Mostar earlier today. I'm a bit tired, so I'll keep this post short.  Tomorrow I might return to my chatty self.

Ovu sam kombinaciju nosila na Badnji dan. Mislim da me nadahnula potpuno bijela kombinacija koju je nosila Idu ( sa bloga fashionably Idu). Rekla sam si, zašto ne bi i ja nosila nešto bijelo? Sjetila sam se ove vintage suknje koja mi je bila prevelika, ali otkako sam se udebljala, sasvim mi je dobra veličina. Uglavnom, tako je ispala  ova (pretežno) crno bijela kombinacija. Bila je skroz u redu, samo je problem bio što mi je bilo prevruće. Da, vruće jer je u Mostaru je bilo oko 16 stupnjeva. To je razlog zašto mi na većini fotografija nije zakopčan kaput. Nisam tip koji bi otkopčao kaput samo da se vidi što nosim ispod jer imam jako nisku toleranciju na niske temperature. No, ova zima je zasada jako blaga. Vjerojatno mi ne bi bilo hladno čak i da nisam nosila kaput.  Božić sam (kao što sam vjerojatno i napisala) slavila u Mostaru, jučer sam išla za Split, a danas sam se već vratila, tako da sam umorna i neću duljiti. Sutra se možda raspišem.

  3. Dear Ivana, it looks like summer in Mostar! Wow, the sky is so blue and 16 degrees is really warm! Here in Bavaria it is neither very cold and fortunately often warm enough to forego socks :) You got a great inspiration through Idu, I really love the white skirt and how you combined it!
    Hopefully you had wonderful Christmas!

  17. Dear Ivana, I loved the outfit, black and white and a pop of color are always great colors to combine! Loved the coat, the top, the skirt and boots and the bag is lovely! You look very beautiful and full of stile! I am like you, I am not someone who opens the coat to show what's underneath if it's cold. But sometimes, when it's warmer, I do. I remember the photos I shared in February and March this year, on 2 long trips and my coats were always closed - only the scarves showed :) But that's fine, we don't want to catch a cold :) But I liked that you showed your top, cause it's lovely! I hope you have an amazing new year's eve and 2017 - may you do what you like, paint, show Mostar and Split, and share outfits - do what you love and we will love that as well! Many hugs!

  18. Baš sam pre koji minut bila kod Idu na blogu i rekla joj koliko volim belu zimi :) Definitivno ste me obe inspirisale da joj dam prednost ovih dana :) Mnogo mi se sviđa kombinacija sunkje i rolke, deluje kao da je haljina u pitanju. Baš je ušuškano, udobno, a opet elegantno :) Znači ni kod tebe nema zime. Što se mene tiče, može da potraje ovako. Samo se nadam da neće onda naglo zahladiti kad se približi proleće... Nadam se da si došla k sebi :)

  23. Mi smo ovdje isto uživali par dana na suncu, ali je jučer popodne zapuhala bura i odmah druga priča - totalno smrzavanje :) iako ću uvijek rađe birati to umjesto dosadne kiše...Ova kombinacija mi je baš prava zimsko blagdanska, super te za promjenu malo vidjeti i u bijelom, sviđa mi se suknja! :)

  24. Hi Ivana! :) I wish that here, in Poland was the same sunny weather as in Mostar, here where I live, there was no snow at all, but everyday you can feel very frezzing air, so warm jackets or coat are must-haves ;) What about your post, sorry to hear that you feel a little bit tired, I think that most of us feel the same way after Christmas ;) Moreover, I love your black and white outfit, you look really stylish in this timeless combination of colors, dear :)

    I wish you an amazing NYE and happy New Year, dear Ivana!

  27. You look lovely! I also have a low tolerance to cold and I get fed up of wearing so many layers in Winter! I prefer the warmer months :) Happy New Year Ivana! :) xx

  28. Prelepo izgledaš! Suknja je božanstvena, veoma ženstvena i to u divnoj beloj boji. Šal je sjajan dodatak, a i torba je veoma interesantna.
    Wow, 16 stepeni, pa maltene proleće! Divota prava!

TRYING OUT NEW HIKING TRACK (MOUNTAIN OASIS RUJIŠTE, HERZEGOVINA)

Today I'm taking you to Rujište, a mountain oasis located only a short drive away from Mostar city. This beautiful area is located on mountain Prenj. Nicknamed the Herzegovina Himalayas, mountain Prenj boosts of peaks over two thousand meters high. We didn't go all the way to the top this time, though. Instead, we payed another visit to Snow House (Snježna kuća) hotel. This time I shared my lunch with the hotel's cat, not the dog (for the yellow dog I made friends with last time was nowhere to be seen). In addition, we tried the new recreational hiking track. I'm happy to report that my review of this track will be a positive one. The length of the track is around one kilometer, the climb is approximately seventy meters so it is perfect for recreational hikers.  Moreover, there are workout tables and instructions throughout the track (for those who really want to get serious about their fitness). Weekends are a great time to get back to shape (or at least try to). Spe…

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…

NATURE MONUMENT IN VICINITY OF MOSTAR CITY, HERZEGOVINA

14 years an expat in Bosnia and Herzegovina and I only discovered this place a few weeks ago. In fact, the two of us discovered it by chance. Event my significant other (a local and the reason why I moved to Herzegovina in the first place) didn't know about this place. You can find this amazing natural monument in vicinity of Mostar city.  Here is the spot where river Neretva divides in two, forming a pool like surface running on one end and a quick river on other. The same river, but two completely different scenes, running side by side. I hope to be able to visit this spot again some time soon, it's truly magnificent. We were fortunate in that summer lasted a bit longer here, so many early autumn days were very sunny and warm (as you can see for yourself).
