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!

Inspired by..... Tijana/ Nadahnuta....Tijanom

Hi everyone! It's time for another Inspired by....post. The medium is acrylic on cardboard. This time I illustrated Tijana from fashion abejita. Painting lace is always a challenge and I'm aware that I have a long way to go when it comes to illustrating fabrics, but all things considering, I think I did pretty well. In fact, I'm quite happy with how this painting turned out. This outfit is a summery one, but it is suitable for Spring as well. Besides, green is in this Spring. 
Zdravo svima! Vrijeme je za još jednu Nadahnuta s...objavu. Medij su akrilne boje na kartonu. Ovaj put sam naslikala Tijanu sa bloga fashion abejita. Slikati čipku je izazov i znam da imam još puno toga za naučiti kada je ilustriranje tekstila u pitanju, no  kada se sve uzme u obzir, mislim da ova slika nije loše ispala. Zapravo,  poprilično sam zadovoljna s time kako je slika ispala. Ova kombinacija je ljetna, ali zapravo se može nositi i na proljeće. Osim toga, zelena je sada u trendu.

HOW TO STYLE BLACK CORD FLARES FOR AUTUMN? OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Are you wondering what fabrics to reach for this Autumn? Corduroy items are perfect for creating cozy autumn outfits. So, I'm assuming most of you (if not all) have at least one pair of dark (cord) jeans.  How to style black corduroy flare jeans for autumn? Today I'll show you an easy autumnal styling. When in doubt go for a black and white styling, for it always look elegant. Here I paired my dark cord jeans with a white shirt and a white blazer. This classic colour combo allowed me to play with accessories a bit. I made things more interesting by adding statement earrings and a scarf in the mix. I also wore high heeled boots for the extra elongating effect. Alright, I'm quite tall, but this combo makes me look even taller. Flare jeans can be so flattering, especially high rise ones.
THERE IS NOTHING NEW ABOUT THIS OUTFIT: SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES I've finished the Slow Season Fashion Challenge successfully. I didn't purchase anything last summer. Second hand it…

READING UPDATE & NEW BOOK REVIEWS: OCTOBER COUNTRY, WILD LIFE AND DIDO, QUEEN OF CARTHAGE

Time for another reading update. Today I'll review three books: a novel, a collection of stories and a play. The novel Wild Life by Molly Gloss was my first work by this author. October Country is a work by author I was already familiar with. In fact some of you might remember that I have a great fondness for Ray Bradbury. His Fahrenheit 451 is one of my favourite dystopian novels of all times.  So, I was happy I was able to pick up a collection of his short stories. Finally, I read a play by Christopher Marlowe. This is another author I was already familiar with (I did study English language and literature). I enjoyed Marlowe's version of Doctor Faustus myth, so I decided to see what his others works are like. So far, I read one and a half play but I plan to finish them all by the end of the month. I was also rereading Shakespeare a lot lately because that is always a good idea. I do upload most of my reading on goodreads so you can check my reading progress there as well. 

O…
