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...

Inspired by..... Tijana/ Nadahnuta....Tijanom

Hi everyone! It's time for another Inspired 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.

This is what…


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…


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.
