A SHORT VISIT TO SPLIT CITY/ WHERE TO DINE AND WHAT TO DO?

Today it is time to show you a few photographs from my visit to Split city last February. I had planned to visit Split this March as well, but so far I haven't managed to do it. That doesn't mean that I won't. March isn't over yet, right? Anyhow, today I'll show you what I did in Split last February. I already told you about visiting my family in Jelsa, island Hvar, and now the spotlight is on Split.


Do you remember that grey DIY dress I showed to you last autumn? That was the first 'real' dress I made (using a sewing machine). Before this one, I had only made a couple of summer dress and I sewed those by hand. This was the first proper dress I made and I absolutely love it. Bellow you can only see it partly (as I styled it with a faux fur and leather coat and boots), so I'll include a prior photo of it as well. 



This is how I styled it recently. These two photographs were taken in front of a buildings that has recently been turned into an university building.  Over the years, the university collage in Split has been growing. It seems that some of the faculties are also moving into buildings in this area. Did you know they have Korean studies in Split now? I didn't, until I read it from the board on this buildings. That's really cool. I wish they existed in my time. I could have studied Korean. But I suppose it is never too late to start. It is lovely to see my city change in front of my eyes.


In the evening I wore the same coat but paired it with jeans and sneakers. We went for a little stroll by the sea, which is something you should totally do if you visit Split city. There is nothing more beautiful then sunsets by the sea, is there? I love Split's sunsets, they are always so beautiful. Besides walking around, what else have we done? We also dined in our favourite Asian restaurants. 

ASIAN FOOD IN SPLIT CITY

Where to dine in Split city? I always stop by two Asian restaurants that are located in my old neighbourhood (called Split 3). The first one is called Biser Orijenta (Pearl of Orient), the second is called Kineski restaurant Asia, Hong Yung (Chinese restaurant Asia)  and its address is Poljička cesta, 39.  Both restaurants are located in the walking distance of one another. I ate in both of them when I was in Split. I usually do. The food served is mostly Chinese cuisine, but on the menu there are also some dishes from other Asian cuisines. Last time we were there (in Pear of Orient), we wanted to order sushi but the main chef had to leave, so we ordered something else (bamboo and chicken soup for start and meat dumplings and noodles with vegetables for the main dish). However, half an hour later the chef returned and he insisted on bringing us a portion of sushi on the house, so we had that too. I was super full as you can imagine. Anyway, I can definitely recommend these two restaurants. I had a really good experience in all Asian restaurants in Split city, but these two are my  personal favourites. 



 I hope you've enjoyed this Split getaway with we. There is always lots to do and see in Split city. Let me know if you would like me to talk more about it more in the future post. Today I've kept it short and sweet, but you know that I can write much longer posts, so if you want to see and read more about Split city, write so in the comments. I blogged about Split a number of times, so not to repeat myself , I'll include some links to my previous posts and you check out them as well. 



That would be all for today. As always thank you for reading! Have a lovely day.

  7. What a beautiful city to enjoy the sun setting! Walking on the beach early or at the end of the day is so peaceful. Your grey dress is so perfect to style in so many ways. Asian food is so yummy. We try to recreate dishes at home that we have had in restaurants but we can never get make them quite right!

    1. thank you dear. I do agree. It is so peaceful to walk on the beach early or late in the day. I know what you mean about Asian dishes. I tried to recreate them at home, and while they didn't turn out badly, they were not as delicious as those in restaurants.

  8. You did such a wonderful job on that dress and I love how you styled it in two totally different ways. It always sounds like there are fun things to do and nice places to dine at in Split. It must be lovely to have seaside view everywhere you go as well.

  9. Split sembra proprio il posto perfetto per passare qualche fuori città in tutto relax!
    Le foto sono belissime e molto suggestive, si vede proprio che è un posto tranquillo e ben tenuto!
    E ancora complimenti per il tuo abito, considerando che è il primo che hai realizzato con la macchina da cucire, ti è venuto benissimo! E ti dona anche molto quella linea! :)
    Baci!

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…

SUMMER TO AUTUMN OUTFITS FEATURING A VINTAGE BLACK MAXI DRESS

Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…
