Flare jeans and magetna coat (location Mostar, BIH)

I'm still really into this magenta coat. I love everything about this coat, the cut and the colours, the accent sleeves and the detail on the collar. This time I paired it with a pair of blue flare jeans, a striped backpack and a pair of black boots. I wore it on a cold and sunny winter day and I felt pretty good. Dressing up in Winter is sometimes a challenge, but sometimes it is quite easy. If you are the sort of person who enjoys colours, perhaps wearing a coloured coat is a good idea to chase of Monday blues. I personally don't get those Monday blues anymore. I try to make it a habit to visit libraries on Monday and since I love reading this is obviously something I look forward too. I'm not sure is that the sole reason why I don't dislike Mondays anymore but it certainly doesn't hurt.

Flare jeans and magetna coat (location #Mostar, BIH)

This location was already featured in this post. Mostar could be described as the city of bridges and rivers (there are many bridges and rivers in this city). In this post , for instance, you can even see the new bridge. So, there you go. Sometimes I actually take photographs (or better to say have my photos taken) in the city I live in most of the time, i.e. Mostar. Back to the subject of clothes. I've always been a fan of flare jeans. I love to wear them with pretty much everything, and coats are no exception. This year I've been wearing this pair of flare jeans very often. You can see how I styled them here.  How do you like this outfit? Do you like Winter?  How do stay warm and cozy during Winter? Do you like Mondays?

  2. Hello Ivana, hope you're starting the week with the best attitude :)

    Actually I'm not the kind of person who hates Mondays but sometimes it is a little bit difficult to get back on the track, even tho I usually work on Sundays too so I get used to it easily :)

    Love that you're facing a new week in the right outfit, for some people fashion is not more than vanity but I am sure that the right garments will help us to portrait our intentions and to survive life in more aesthetic way. Been obsessed with flare pants by the way ;) and they look perfect on you :)

    By the way I followed you on GoodReads this weekend ;)


  3. What an interesting place to visit. The old buildings are lovely. I really like your coat it's a lovely colour!

  4. You look so classy. Love the coat! Have a great week! xx

  5. Zdravo Ivanice! Evo mene konačno na tvom blogu ponovo. Vreme nam ne dozvoljava nažalost da uvek ostavimo komentar, ali svakako ću pročitati zaostale postove.
    Ovaj kaputić je baš po mom ukusu. Boja i kroj skroz fantastični. Lepo mi izgledaš, veliki pozdrav

  6. Stai benissimo, mi piace molto il colore di questo cappottino

  7. Ah yes I remember the bridges when you've featured Mostar before. It's no surprise you love this coat. That's such a great color and the style presents for much versatility in terms of being dressed up or down.

  8. Sicuramente trovare un bel cappotto che ci stia bene è il rpimo passo per semplificarsi la vita in Inverno, sostanzialmente è lui che diventa il punto focale dell'outfit!
    Il tuo è davvero carino, e trovo che ti stia davvero bene sia come colore che come modello! L'ideale per passeggiare nella bella Mostar!
    detto questo, io non amo particolarmente l'inverno, dato che mi piace passare il tempo all'aperto e non amo il freddo nè mettere troppi vestiti, soprattutto pesanti addosso, capirai che non è proprio la mia stagione ideale, nonostante qui a Roma sia comunque molto mite! :)

  9. Il colore di questo cappotto è stupendo e mi piacciono molto come ti vestono quei jeans!
    Kisses, Paola.


  10. Love the color of that coat!! It looks great on you!

    I have been to Mostar a couple of years ago, so these pictures bring me good memories :)

    Have a great week!

  14. Cool outfit, you look amazing in that styling, Ivana! The color of coat is fabulous.

  15. You are adorable, I believe we should invest into more colors during winter seasons, since they tend to be super gloomy and depressing.
    I love the magenta coat, and the fit is so for you! <3

  16. This coat is so beautiful, I love the color! You look radiant, very beautiful! I loved the photos, Mostar is really so cool! I confess I love winter and I find it easier for me to dress up in winter than in the summer. Magenta is a beautiful color for you, dear Ivana! Hope you have a beautiful week! Hugs!

  17. It's a great coat! The color & style look great on you.

  18. i saw that coat in a other post from you - i like that thing a lot!!! but i LOVE your photo location with this destroyed building in the back - this looks like an post apocalyptic scene - so scary...

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.

Yesterday I tore myself away from the laptop to make a new fashion illustration. It's been a while since I made my last fashion illustration. I've been spending an insane amount of time behind the screen lately (who ever said blogging is easy, right?) working on new blog posts. At some point yesterday, I decided to get up, grab some watercolour pencils and paint a new fashion illustration. Friday Fashion Illustration is not the most regular feature on my blog, but this summer at least I can try to change that. While I was working on my new fashion illustration, I test drove watercolour pencils from Steadler  brand (not sponsored). It's been ages since I last used watercolour pencils. I'll wait for a bit before I give this brand a detailed review, but for now I can say that I quite liked these pencil watercolours. So far so good, you might say. Steadler brand claims to be sustainable and  sustainability is important to me. It is something that applies to every aspect o…


I'm back with another vacation/beach inspired outfit, but this one is also appropriate for island hiking. You've probably noticed that printed dresses are my summer 'go to' item. Yesterday I showed you a cherry print one and today I'll show you how to wear a dress with a geometric print. The geometric prints that are trending the most this season are retro ones. We saw retro patterns and prints featured in numerous 2019 resorts collections. Not that I bought this dress with the intention of following this trend, it's more a coincidence. With all the summer micro trends, you're bound to pick up on some trend sooner or later (even if you don't try). 
I actually had this dress for years, got it in a collaboration. You know that I'm all for shopping's one closet as it is a great way to be more sustainable and environmentally friendly. Today you can see me wearing a geometric print dress I wore many times on this blog (proof here, here and here) an…


Hello, darlings! How have you been? I finally found some time to sit down and write this bookish post. I'll share some summer outfits with you today, but mostly I'll talk books. Yes, it's time for another reading and rereading update! Summer is such a perfect time to read, isn't it? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love to read all year around, but I still see summer as the ideal reading time. I wonder why is it so? Maybe it is somewhat on a subconscious level, seeing all those images of people reading on the beach.  Is it because summer is the traditional 'reading time' for many people? Is it because most people go on their vacation in the summer? Is it because most people use vacation time to catch up on reading? Is it the bookworm in me getting excited getting excited about making the most out of the 'reading season'? Is it the joy of reading in the open? It might be any or all of these things, but I do enjoy reading in summertime. How about you? D…
