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...

For me, the red is the colour of love, good luck and passion. With Lunar Year Festivities and Valentine's Day being just around the corner, it is the perfect time to start embracing and wearing red. How to wear red in the winter? Now, it doesn't have to be a red from head to toe outfit. If you're not confident enough to rock the all red look or you don't want to invest into red clothing items, you can always start small and opt for red accessories such as scarves, leggings/tights, hats, bags, shoes and etc. Moreover, you can embrace red with your beauty options. The bold red lip look will never get old. A nice red manicure is always a classic. If you're bold enough, you can even try embracing the red eye-shadow trend.  HOW TO WEAR RED ACCENTS IN WINTER?

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…


Today I'll show you a couple of ways to start a brown faux leather/ faux fur coat. We'll start with a more dressed up version. Now, this brown coat comes with a faux fur hoodie and that gives it more of a casual vibe, similar to that of a parka jacket. So, I decided to dressed it up with accessories (always the best way to dress up an item). I paired this coat with predominately black accessories: a pair of stilettos, a bag, a pair of earrings and a headband. I also wore a statement necklace. The dress I was wearing under the coat was a simple grey dress (bought at Terranova some time ago), so I wasn't afraid to pile on the accessories.  Scroll down to see and read more.  DIY HEADBAND PROJECT: HOW I HAND SEWED THE FLORAL APPLICATIONS You already had the chance of seeing this DIY headband many times, but it's been a whole since I showed you how I actually made it.
