Međugorje- Mostar (Styling cropped flares / nošenje kraćih trapezica)

One pair of cropped flared jeans. Two outfits. Two places (Mostar & Međugorje). Cropped flares seem to be in right now. I could pretend that I was right on trend. Say that I bought my cropped flares ahead of time. However, you would all know that's just not true because you have seen me wear them for years now. 

The truth is that I often have issues finding a pair of pants of adequate length. But, because I love flares so much I have kept buying them even when there was some definite length missing. What you know? Now cropped flares are all the rave...and I can pretend that I'm right on trend, even if it really only a coincidence. 

To tell you the truth, I don't remember when was the last time that I bought a clothing item. Perhaps I'm just tired of stores. Furniture and appliance shopping is exhausting. I'm starting to see why people hire professionals to do interior design for them. It is a lot of work. On the other hand, perhaps the reason of my buying clothes has nothing to do with laziness or being tired. Perhaps I'm just enjoying shopping my closet. 

Jedan par kraćih traperica trapezica. Dvije odjevne kombinacije. Dva mjesta (Mostar i Međugorje). Čini se da su kraće trapezice sada u trendu. Mogla bi se pretvarati da pratim trendove. Reći da sam kupila svoje kraće trapezice prije puno vremena. No, svi bi znali da nije tako jer ste me vidjeli da ih nosim već godinama.

Istina je da teško pronalazim hlače koje su odgovarajuće dužine. No, zato jer toliko volim hlače kroja na zvono nastavila sam ih kupovati čak i kada je bilo očito da im nedostaje dužine, Tko zna što će doći u modu? Sada su kraće hlače na zvono u modi...i mogu se pretvarati da sam u trendu, iako je to zapravo slučajnost.

Zapravo da budem iskrena, ne sjećam se kada sam zadnji put kupila neki odjevni predmet. Možda sam jednostavno umorna od trgovina. Kupovina namještaja i kućnih uređaja je iscrpljujuća. Počinjem shvaćati zašto ljudi unajmljuju profesionalce da im urede dom. Naporno je to. S druge strane, možda moj prestanak kupovine nije rezultat lijenosti ili umora. Možda mi je jednostavno zabavno kupovati u svome ormaru.

  10. I hear you on shopping your own closet because I've been enjoying doing that myself :) These cropped flares look like a very stylish addition to your wardrobe and the fact that you've styled them in two different outfits already shows off their versatility.

  12. Sh, dont tell us you are accidentally on trend. Just like you I dont buy many clothes, so I wear pieces of my wardrobe right until they are back on trend again. Saves a lot of money.

  17. You cute in that puffer coat but my favorite is the second one, the colors suits you so beautifully, Ivana. Shopping ones own closet is a wise thing to do. I have changed my shopping habits dramatically, no longer is there a Friday shopping spree, no longer oh I like it I buy it but a lot of closet shopping instead, and I am suprised how many clothes I have worn only once and therefor they are still new to me, lol.

  18. Your cropped flare jeans look great in these pictures. After having blogged about cropped flares in my fashion blog, I found them as a great opportunity to showcase your favorite shoes, sneakers, or sandals. Flares are attractive to me regardless. However, there's something about cropped flares that are uniquely appealing. You kind of show that uniqueness with these pictures. The lace-up boots are nice, but for the appeal of these bottoms, maybe some wild or chic shoes or sandals would have been better. Still styled well regardless!

  19. U pravu si za trapezice, totalno su moderne ove sezone. Ali, isto kao i tebi i pre su mi bile drage i super je što se moda zapravo vrti u krug i možemo uspešno kombinovati već postojeće komade iz garderobera, a opet izgledati aktuelno :-*

  20. Such a gorgeous blue sky - and of course gorgeous you in your flared pants! It's great to "shop your closet" when you've already created a fun closet to shop from! :) I'm all up for that too!! :)

  22. Eh, ta kupovina u ormanu mi je sve draža i draža ;) Ja zapravo volim ideju u kupovini i možda sam odlazak, da bih jako brzo shvatila koliko me to umara zapravo.
    Pantalone su divne (i u trendu htela ti to ili ne :D) Ta boja mi se jako sviđa i mnogo ti lepo stoji :)

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.

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).
