Mostar, the city of bridges / Mostar, grad mostova


The weather has been unpredictable lately. One day it is Summer, the next Autumn. Today I might be sporting short sleeves, tomorrow I might be wearing a winter coat. Layering is always a good idea, but when the weather is this crazy, it turns into a necessity. Truth be told, these images were taken about a month (maybe even two) ago, but I wore practically the same thing last night. It has been raining all day yesterday and while it is not  exactly cold outdoors, it isn't warm either. One doesn't feel too warm wearing a winter coat. Meaning: Spring is hiding itself. Not that I mind much. Most of the weather is pretty gorgeous here and I would be silly to complain of a few rainy days.

Vrijeme je u zadnje vrijeme nepredvidljivo. Jednoga dana je ljeto, idućega jesen. Danas možda hodam u kratkim rukavima, sutra nosim zimski kaput. Slojevito odijevanje je uvijek dobra ideja , ali kada je vrijeme ovako ludo, onda je to nužnost. Istinu govoreći ove slike su uslikane prije mjesec (možda čak i dva), ali nosila sam praktično istu stvar jučer navečer. Jučer je cijeli dan padala kiša i iako ne mogu reći da je baš hladno vani, nije ni toplo. U zimskom kaputu nije bi bilo vruće. U prijevodu, proljeće se negdje skriva. Ne da se žalim. Većinu vremena ovdje je vrijeme poprilično lijepo i bila bi blesava da se žalim zbog par kišnih dana.

 Mostar is a city of bridges. Not surprisingly, really. When  a city can boost of seven river (7!!!!), there are bound to be bridges. This bridge has had a long and an interesting history. It was rebuild six times and changed its name four time. It is officially called Musala bridge, but some people still call it Tito's bridge (one of its old names). It is located between hotel Bristol (on its left side) and hotel Bristol (on its right side).

Mostar je grad mostova. Nimalo čudno, zapravo. Kada se grad može pohvaliti sa sedam rijeka ( ni više ni manje) onda tu mora biti i mostova. Ovaj most je imao dugu i zanimljivu povijest. Šest puta je nanovo izgrađivan, a ime je promijenio četiri puta. Službeno se zove Musala most, ali neki ljudi ga zovu Titov most (jedno od njegovih starih imena). Smješten je između hotela Neretva (na svojoj lijevoj strani) i hotela Bristol (na svojoj desnoj strani).

  4. I never knew that Mostar had so many bridges, that's amazing! :) And so funny about the Hotel Bristol... Bristol (in the UK) is where I live. :) And I completely agree with you about the weather lately, dear... It has been so unpredictable over here, as well! We had a couple of weeks of sunshine, but now it's back to dark, gloomy and rainy all the time, unfortunately! Hopefully it will pick up again soon. :) Also, I really love this outfit, dear! The coat is so stylish and comfortable, and quite similar to one I have for autumn, also. Love how you styled it with everything else! Hope you're having a fantastic weekend, lovely! xoxo

  5. Jao ovo ludo vrijeme...mi smo u zadnjih par dana u više navrata otkazivali i prebacivali jedno veliko snimanje, da bi na kraju danas ujutro zbog prevrtljivih oblaka sve s jutra prebacili na popodne...ma suludo je sve, da ne spominjem da se također ne znam kako obući, sklonila sam svu deblju odjeću i sad se krpam slojevima jer se ne želim vratiti u džemper haha :D

  6. You look so stylish in this outfit Ivana! I really like your coat and the wash of these particular jeans. Also, the layering with the collared shirt and sweater are perfect! How is the weather over there? Here it is sunny but windy.

  13. Dear Ivana, in Bavaria this week was even a lot of snow but since yesterday the sun returened :) How good you don't complain about a few rainy days as I got already the impression that the weather in Moster is pretty good! Wow, Mostar has 7 rivers! This is amazing - no wonder there are that many bridges.
    Thanks for sharing this beautiful post including your cool look with the denims. I'm convinced this look was also yesterday totally appropriate for you.

  22. Divni Mostar, čak i po kiši! I ovde je skroz ludo vreme, čas kiša, čas sunce i jako je sparno. Nikako da bude baš ono pravo proleće.

  23. You know - I was in Mostar many years ago. I still remember how beautiful this city is, even though soooo much time has passed. Great pics . XXXX Margot :))))))))

  24. Beautiful! 7 rivers, that's an amazing fact for just one city! In Russia, St Petersburg boasts literally hundreds of bridges with all its rivers and canals. But of course, it is also a large city. There is something magical and mystical about bridges, no wonder people are drawn to them... crossing over, going to another side - it's all full of symbolism!
    I do love your outfit here! I love that you show different sides of your personality with your outfits - sweet, feminine and romantic or, like here, energetic, moody and edgy. Very stylish! <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.

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.
