How to style a magenta coat? (location Buna, Bosnia and Herzegovina)



Earlier this month, I bought and wore this magenta coat (here), and today I have another suggestion for styling it. I've always been a fan of statement coats (even when they weren't really a thing), so you may expect to see this coat again here on blog. I was never the type to buy something and wear it only once, for I usually get a kick of wearing an item repeatedly. Once again, I've paired this coat with jeans, but this time a size darker. I wore a turtleneck in a burgundy colour, and it got on surprisingly well with this dark pink coat. To finish it off, I choose dark brown boots and bag. When I get tired of black, I often opt for brown. It is a rather neutral colour that goes well with everything. To be honest, this leather basketball cap wasn't a part of this outfit. I just put it on because I was worried I might be cold (it was windy) but since the sun was more than enough to warm me, I took it off shortly. All in all, I was pretty happy with this outfit.

Since I lost weight, I found myself with a predictable problem of what to wear. Instead of shopping for clothes, for now I resorted to stealing clothes, especially jeans from my husband's closet (because he is kind of skinny). I even found some vintage jeans that he used to wear. So, basically I'm rotating a few pairs of stolen jeans. When you lose weight, pants are usually the big issue. One can still wear skirts and dresses when you go a size down, but pants are problematic. There was this phase I had when I refused to wear jeans and now I'm completely the opposite. At the moment, I actually enjoy wearing jeans but I'm still lazy to go and search for a pair that actually fits, so I'm sticking with stealing them from hubby and wearing belts.

You're probably noticed that I like to take photographs outdoors. I don't invest much in blog photography, I don't even have a proper camera right now, but I do try to choose nice locations. Not only because of you guys, but because I enjoy lovely locations myself. Fortunately, there are a lot of stunning locations where I live. However, after a while they are bound to get a bit repetitive. I hope you don't mind. As a rule, I repeat about a dozen of locations frequently. I don't see the point in writing about them every time, and describing the same place over and over again, so I will just link up old posts herehere, here, here and here and you can read more about this place if you want to.

I find it hard to believe that I used to be a girl who disliked Winter. Now, I can't seem to get enough of it. I'm actually excited about the fact that Winter is here to stay. I'm not anxiously waiting for the Spring or anything like that. I mean I will probably be happy once Spring arrives, but I feel no need to rush it. Instead I'm enjoying season that's here, trying to seize the moment, you know carpe diem and all that. Winter can be so beautiful and inspiring. I remember how I used to enjoy painting winter landscapes (you know snow and all that), but it took me all this time to really appreciate the beauty of Winter. Better late than never, right?

  3. That is great statement coat. The vivid hue and collar and sleeve details are very eyecatching. I like you've been creative with dressing yourself since your weight loss. It's good that you're able to "steal" your husband's jeans for now :)

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.

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
