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!

  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!

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 …
