TARTAN BLAZER AND A GUIDE TO JELSA (ISLAND HVAR, CROATIA)

Today I have a simple autumn styling to share with you.You know that I'm all about shopping my closet, so you won't be surprised to learn that there is nothing new about my outfit. A tartan blazer is a must item in autumn. I wear this tartan blazer a lot and I have links with outfit posts to prove it (here, here, here, here, here , here, here, here , here , here, here and here) This time I wore it with a red flared top to spice things up a bit (see how I styled this red top before here, here , here and here). Paired with navy flare pants (worn previously here) and ankle boots (worn previously here and here), this was one comfy autumn styling. How do you like it? 
IT Ciao cari lettori! Oggi ho un semplice look autunnale da condividere con voi. Sapete ormai che amo fare lo shopping nel mio armadio, quindi non è una sorpresa che non c'è nulla di nuovo nel mio outfit. Un blazer tartan è un must in autunno. Indosso spesso questo blazer tartan e ho dei link con i post per dimostrarlo (potete trovare tutti i link nel testo in inglese) Questa volta l'ho indossato con un rosso top per creare un accento (guarda come ho indossato questo top rosso prima quiquiqui qui). Abbinato a pantaloni in blu scuro (indossati precedentemente qui) e stivaletti (indossati precedentemente qui), questo era uno stile comodo autunnale. Come vi piace?
HR Danas imam jednostavnu jesensku kombinaciju za podijeliti s vama. Vi već znate da često kupujem u svojem ormaru, tako da nećete biti iznenađeni kad saznate da u mojoj kombinaciji nema ništa novo. Karirani sako je neophodni odjevni jesenjski komad. Puno nosim ovaj tartan blazer i imam poveznice s postovima  kako bih to dokazala (sve poveznice u engleskom dijelu teksta) Ovaj put sam ga nosila s crvenim topom da malo začinim stvari (pogledajte kako sam ga prije nosila ovdje, a ostale poveznice pronađite u tekstu na engleskom). U kombinaciji s hlačama modre boje  i čizmama do gležnja, ovo je bio jedan udoban jesenski outfit. Kako vam se sviđa?

EN What have you been up to? I'm currently in Croatia and I plan to stay here for a couple of months. I changed jobs and moved countries, not the easiest thing to do when you have fever, but I'm hanging in there. With the new contract, I had to switch my medical insurance and that is a drag because as you might remember I was in middle of doing tests. Tomorrow is a holiday so I'll try to get some doctor appointments done. My health has never been great, so I'm used to these kind of things (not that they ever get easier, though). On the upper side, you can expect more photographs of ever beautiful Croatian coast line. This time I'm taking you to island Hvar, Croatia. 

IT E voi cari lettori? Come state? Sono attualmente in Croazia e ho intenzione di rimanere qui per un paio di mesi. Ho cambiato lavoro e sono trasferito paesi, non è la cosa più semplice da fare quando hai la febbre, ma che posso fare? Con il nuovo lavoro e contratto, ho dovuto cambiare la mia assicurazione medica e questo è un po' complicato perché, come ricorderete, ero nel mezzo degli esemi e testi medici. Domani è un giorno festivo, quindi cercherò di ottenere alcuni appuntamenti dal medico. La mia salute non è mai stata eccezionale, quindi sono abituata a questo tipo di cose e complicazioni (ma non è mai facile). Sul lato superiore, potete aspettare più fotografie della sempre bella costa croata. Questa volta vi porto sull'isola di Hvar, in Croazia.

Kako ste vi? Čime se bavite? Trenutno sam u Hrvatskoj i planiram ostati ovdje nekoliko mjeseci. Mijenjala sam poslove i preselila se iz zemlje u zemlju (doduše natrag u svoju zemlju, ali opet je tu papirologija), nije nešto najlakše za učiniti kad imaš temperaturu, ali nekako sam preživjela. Zbog novog ugovora morala sam prebaciti svoje zdravstveno osiguranje i to je poprilična poteškoća jer kao što se možda sjećate bila sam usred pregleda. Sutra je praznik, pa ću pokušati obaviti neke liječničke preglede. Moje zdravlje nikad nije bilo sjajno, tako da sam navikla na ovakve stvari (ne da će ikad postati lako). S pozitivne strane možete očekivati više fotografija uvijek prekrasne hrvatske obale.

JELSA CITY IN SUMMER TIME
 WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN JELSA? 
 As you can see, Jelsa is a beautiful little place. What to see in Jelsa? There are certainly quite a few beautiful and historical attractions to see here. To start, why not visit the old city (Civitas Vetus Ielsae)? The old city of Jelsa (where part of the defensive wall is also preserved) is definitely worth a visit! There are also many beautiful churches to see: the church of the Saint Mary of Health (built in 1535), the church of San Roch (built in the second half of the 16th century), the church of Saint Michael (built in 1463). In Jelsa you can also find one of the largest is the most beautiful parks in Dalmatia - Perivoj, built in 1870.

Come potete vedere, Jelsa è un bel posticino. Cosa vedere a Jelsa? Ci sono molte belle e storiche attrazioni da vedere qui. Per iniziare, perché non visitare la città vecchia (Civitas Vetus Ielsae)? La vecchia città di Jelsa (dove è conservata anche una parte delle mura difensive) merita sicuramente una visita! Ci sono anche molte belle chiese da vedere: la chiesa di Santa Maria della Salute (costruita nel 1535), la chiesa di San Rocco (costruita nella seconda metà del XVI secolo), la chiesa di San Michele (costruita nel 1463). Inoltre, a Jelsa puoi anche trovare uno dei più grandi parchi della Dalmazia: Perivoj, costruito nel 1870.

Kao što vidite, Jelsa je prekrasno malo mjesto. Što vidjeti u Jelsi? Ovdje se može vidjeti puno lijepih i povijesnih atrakcija. Za početak, zašto ne posjetiti stari dio grada (Civitas Vetus Ielsae)? Stari dio mjesta Jelsa (u kojem je sačuvan i dio obrambenog zida) definitivno vrijedi posjetiti! Tu se mogu vidjeti i mnoge lijepe crkve: crkva Gospe od Zdravlja (izgrađena 1535.), crkva Svetog Roka (sagrađena u drugoj polovici 16. stoljeća), crkva Svetog Mihajla (sagrađena 1463.). Osim toga, u Jelsi možete pronaći i jedan od najvećih najljepših parkova u Dalmaciji , park Perivoj, izgrađen 1870. godine.

  3. That tartan blazer is such a wonderful statement piece and it looks fab styled with this look. Changing jobs and moving countries is major and also not easy. I hope that your fever will subside and you'll feel better soon. Good luck with your doctor's appointments.

  10. Dearest Ivana,
    "I changed jobs and moved countries" - this really doesn't sound easy! And it even sounds very difficult for me when you're sick... At the same time you look so relaxed and good, and your closet shopping outfit looks modern and chic. You also show nice pictures of Jelsa - the city looks very interesting!
    Hugs my dear and I hope you will get better in November!

HOW TO STYLE A GRAPHIC T-SHIRT WITH WHITE JEANS?

How to style a graphic t-shirt? There are quite a few ways to go about it. My outfit proposal of the day suggests that you should try styling your graphic tee with a white shirt, white jeans and a pair of pink heels. Just because autumn is here, doesn't mean you have to wear only dark colours. White items can look so elegant when styled right. Wearing white for autumn and winter can be a great way to refresh your style. If your style is more classical, pair white with neutral colours such as black or grey. If you're a lover of colour, you can have fun pairing white with any shade you like. I actually love to wear soft colours such as baby pink and blue even in the colder months. If you want to jazz up your graphic tee outfit, why not try pairing it with white jeans? If your graphic t-shirt is short sleeved, why not try layering a shirt or a blouse under it? If you borrow you t-shirt from your boyfriend or someone taller than yourself, you can even wear it as a dress and pair …

VISIT STARI GRAD ON ISLAND HVAR WITH ME! TOP CROATIAN DESTINATIONS

Stari Grad on island Hvar is a beautiful historical city. Its name, meaning old city, couldn't be more appropriate. In fact, Stari Grad was formed the same year Aristotle was born in! Moreover, the connection with the ancient Greeks doesn't stop there. This city was actually formed by Greek colonists from island Paros who came here looking for a safe place to live after a natural catastrophe destroyed their homes. In this secluded bay, the ancient Greeks found both safety and beauty. They named this city Faros. This stunning port city, Aristotle's contemporary, can boast with five thousand years of continuous urban tradition. It is also an amazingly beautiful, authentic and picturesque touristic destination. More than five thousand years of urban tradition is not something you see every day. Walking these streets, you can really breathe in history and culture. Autumn is a great time to visit but winters are also pretty mild here, so a winter stay makes sense too.

VRBOSKA (AKA LITTLE VENICE) ON ISLAND HVAR, CROATIA

Island Hvar hides many gems and I'm very excited to share them all with you. Today I'm taking you to a little picturesque village named Vrboska and nicknamed 'Little Venice'. Located at the end of a narrow bay, this tiny village is an ideal place to escape the stresses of modern life. Because of its lovely bridges, Vrboska was nicknamed 'Little Venice'. Everything from the pine forest surrounding it to the traditional Dalmatian architecture within is absolutely beautiful. The views are simply amazing. No wonder it is increasingly popular with the tourists. 
This village started its life as a fishing port and its deep bay still offers protection for boats and yachts.  It is the perfect place to stroll around and admire boats and traditional stone houses. The little island within the bay is particularly beautiful. This little village has only around 500 residents. Most tourists visit Vrboska during the summer. There are many stunning beaches in the vicinity and …
