How To Style a Long Black Coat? An Outfit Proposal Of the Day (with a touch of red)

I've always loved the sea. Ho sempre amato il mare. Uvijek sam voljela more. 

How are you lovelies? I'm fine. I'm actually not in Split, Croatia (as these photographs would seem to indicate). I'm at home in Mostar, pretty tired after spending most of my day uploading my art to my new online shop. Anyhow, my outfit is yet another look from January. These photographs were taken on a windy day, but I honestly didn't mind, because windy photographs have a charm of their own. Speaking of photographs, isn't this place dreamy? Split is one of my favourite cities to shot in. It's a very photogenic city, no doubt about that. If you have been following my blog for a while, you have probably noticed that I'm crazy about seaside. I love the sea. I've always loved the sea and probably always will.

A touch of red (How to style a long black coat? An outfit proposal of the day)

coat: old, scarf:borrowed, skirt: vintage, shoes: borrowed

A long black coat is a classic. I'm assuming that most ladies own at least one. Most of us have it in our closets. I've had this one for ages and while it is not the only black coat I own, it is probably my favourite one. It was actually a gift from a friend. When I think about it, everything that I'm wearing today is pretty much gift related. I got this red beanie from another friend for Christmas. This yellow pencil skirt was a gift from my niece-in-law. She wore it when she way younger, but since she is not the same size anymore, she passed it down to me. I wear it pretty often because you know me- I love yellow.

This faux fur scarf was a gift from my mother. The story goes like this- she wanted to buy me something for Christmas,  but didn't know what so I told her why not a faux fur scarf. So, we went into a fabric & textile shop and she bought me a meter of this faux fur material (that's how they sell things in textile shops) and I just sewed the ends together. However, when my mother saw me wear it, she wanted one herself so we cut the one I got in half. She sewed her part together to form an infinity scarf and I wear my part as an ordinary faux fur scarf. This time I borrowed 'her scarf' because I had left mine in Mostar, but really it is the same scarf, just sewed together differently. Another thing I borrowed from my mother were these shoes. I planned to do a lot of walking that day, so I wore flats. It was a mistake! By the time I was back my feet were literally filled with blisters and there was even blood. My feet hate flat shoes, they just do. I don't know, maybe my feet are just more used to heels. Anyway, from now on- only heels.

  1. Hi! Great post and i love your photos!
    I just discovered your blog and I keep following it, would you follow me back?

    Have a nice day!

  2. Tebi dugi kaput divno stoji. Baš si elegantna. Ja sam odustala od te dužine jer ne ličim na ništa u tome :)
    I dobra mi je ideja s lažnim krznom na metre, sašiješ kako želiš i bok. Baš mi je drago da si opet počela raditi outfit postove.

  3. Aaaaaw you are so adorable. I love the idea behind the faux fur scarf, I wish I could sew as well, maybe it's about time to learn :D
    The black coat is indeed a classic and it suits you so much, which is weird, I usually don't like black coats,but you manage to pull it off with your own playfulness and it looks so well fitten on you as well!

  4. i think you take the right choice to on that look. i like also your little red hat - so cute!

    also interesting: you wearing flats, instead of pumps - you not very often wesaring flat shoes. nice to see that on this look!

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.

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …


It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets. 


If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…


I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
