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

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 



AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

HOW TO STYLE TARTAN IN A CASUAL WAY? OUTFIT PROPOSALS + FASHION ILLUSTRATION

I was thinking about why I like tartan pattern so much, when one reason crossed my mind. I figured that it probably has something to do with the history and the culture behind this particular pattern. After all, I always say that traditional and folklore clothing (be it original or reproduced) carries additional value. Traditional patterns can be such an wonderful source of inspiration. Traditional patters have soul to them, one might say. The history of tartan is particularly interesting. Today we mostly associate tartan with Scotland, but according to some historians, tartan like fabrics were used by ancient Celtic populations spreading across the British Isles as early as the sixth and the eight century BC. Well, that one old pattern for sure! However, even if tartan clothes are really as old as ancient Celts, it is the still Scotland that is responsible for tartan we know today. Did you know that different tartan patterns can represent different Scottish families? Something like …
