Frozen (Another Winter Outfit Post)



I actually didn't plan to share these photographs, as they are just hiking photos and from a spot I've blogged about not too long ago (here) but then I thought why not? Why not share candid photographs of what I wear when it's really really cold? I share hiking outfits all the time, so why not this one? I asked my husband to take some photographs of this spot because this broken glass reminded me of a frozen river.  My husband told me that the broken glass was there because there used to be a glass house on that spot.

It's been showing when I arrived to Split a week ago but it didn't stick for long. It's been showing in Mostar recently as well. Just as suddenly as the snow appeared, it disappeared. If you've been watching the news, you'll know  that it's been cold in this part of Europe. We had a few warmer days, but they say that it will get cold again soon. We'll see. I didn't have time to take any nice photographs of the snow in Mostar, so if you want to see what Mostar looks under snow, I can only refer you to this old post of mine.

I've just returned from Split and this time there was no snow in sights. My visits to Split have been more frequent as of late,  because I have had some medical tests to do but I didn't have any time to take any photographs or to make any travel/outfit posts. Right now it's not that cold. Still, today I'm sharing another winter outfit. I know that in many places, it is still quite cold.


















Spring is arriving any day now, but if you are in a mood for a walk, there is no need to wait for it. When it's cold, it's tempting to just lock ourselves into our homes, but fresh air is beneficial for our health. Even if you're not an outdoorsy person, a short walk is something to be considered. I'm not taking about the extreme cold. If a weather forecasts comes with a doctor's warming and the experts are urging us to stay in, then that is what we should do. However, I can't help thinking that sometimes people spend too much time indoors during Winter.









Sometimes I go outside and the streets are empty despite the fact that it isn't even bellow zero. Again, I'm not urging people to go outside when it's minus twenty, nor am I advising you to spend a lot of time outdoors in cold weather, but sometimes people stay in even when it's plus two. As long as we're talking about normal European Winter, I think that being cold is pretty much optional if you learn to dress well. As long as your health is relatively good, there is no need for you to spend all of your time indoors. All I'm saying is that a bit of hiking or walking never hurt anyone. A walk always makes me feel better.

  1. I'm glad you shared these photos! Your playful spirt really comes through :) I thought the cold weather was behind us but we're still getting snow in New York. I don't mind a walk in the cold as long as I'm bundled up. I don't even mind walking in the snow since I love to photograph it.

  3. My husband and I used to walk a lot but these days it's touch because of my work schedule. He finish work at 3 and I start at 5pm so we barely have much time together. :-(

  6. Fresh air is definitely beneficial to your health Ivana. My mom and I just started walking in the park today. It felt so good. It was chilly & breezy, but I felt a difference. It's not good to stay indoors all the time. It's also nice to take pictures in outfits you normally wear. I enjoy this! It's natural. Great post.

  9. I absolutely adore these candid photographs. The outdoors is spectacular and the vistas you show are beautiful. I also very much love what you are wearing. That coat and fur capelet is stunning on you.
    Love the backpack too. I agree it is good to get out in the winter so long as the cold is not too extreme.

  10. Looking at photos of you all bundled up makes me feel cold. I've never lived in cold weather like that but you make it look fun and easy. Walking or hiking is always a good idea and definitely has health benefits. You look adorable in your furry capelet and great job on those candid poses. I love your authenticity.

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.

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

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. …

HOW TO WEAR MORE WHITE IN WINTER IN FIVE SIMPLE STEPS

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. 


1. START WITH ACCESSORIES 

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…

READING UPDATE, NEW FINDS: MARIO VARGAS LLOSA AND RAGNAR JONASSON

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 …
