FASHION BLOGGER OFF DUTY OUTFITS: JELSA, CROATIA

Today I'm sharing two 'fashion blogger off duty outfits' with you. This is the kind of outfits I wear when I go hiking: comfy and warm. Furthermore, I'm going to show you more views of Jelsa village, taken from both sides of the bay this little port village is situated in. The nature surrounding Jelsa is truly beautiful. Following the coastal pathways, you can hike both left and right to discover enchanting bays and untouched nature. You can also hike the green hills this island has to over. Hvar is also known as the green island. It is covered in pine tree forest so walking here will do wonders for your lungs. You know I'm a bit believer in benefits of hiking and spending time outdoors. Weekends are perfect for going  for a long walk. It is always good to be proactive about our health.

WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN JELSA? 
 EN 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.

IT 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.

HR 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.
MY PREVIOUS POSTS ABOUT JELSA
For more photographs and information about Jelsa, visit my previous posts: 
From Jelsa you an also enjoy the view of Croatia costal lights. When it gets dark, you can see the lights of Makarska city shining in the distance. You can also see island Brač. As I pointed out, the views here are really great. That is one of the things I like about island Hvar. It offers  amazing views and panoramas in all directions.  You can have your pick!

My first hiking outfit proposal was quite sporty, all about those chunky sneakers and active wear. My second outfit proposal is less sporty and a bit more casual combo of jeans, boots and a green tartan puffer jacket. I also added in a shawl (here I tied it like an oversize scarf but it is really more a shawl then a scarf because it is very wide- and that's the difference between a scarf and a shawl I believe). Sometimes when I'm hiking I like to wear boots. Here you can read my post about how to dress feminine in winter even when you're going hiking. Anyhow, both of these outfits are composed of items I had for a long time. I don't have time to link them all up right now, but you have probably seen them on my blog so perhaps there is no need for me to link them just to prove the obvious. 
 5 HEALTH BENEFITS OF GOING FOR A WALK OR A HIKE IN NATURE
If you want to be healthier or get back into shape and are looking for some inspiration, perhaps the health benefits of walking and hiking can be the motivation you need to get back on track. Indeed, there are many health benefits of going for a walk in the nature. Some of the benefits of going for a walk in nature can include:
1. Digital detox and resting our eyes:
Resting our eyes from the screens is pretty important and what better way to do it than by taking in some beautiful landscape in?
2. Physical activity and exercise:
A slow walk is appropriate even for the elderly and chronically ill. Physical activity is an important aspect of overall health preservation and maintenance. 
3. No noise often means less stress:
Resting our ears might be as important as resting our eyes. Don't underestimate the effect of silence. In addition, nature sounds like the sound of the creek or the bird song can have a relaxing effect on many. 
4. Fresh air: therapy for our lungs
Fresh air is obviously beneficial for our lungs and overall health. Spending time outdoors can lower the changes of depression.
5. Inspiration and mental relaxation
Nature can be a great way to find inspiration. This doesn't only apply to artists or people working in creative field. A change of scenery is a good way to change our routine, which in turn can also mean a lower chance of developing depression. Walking can have a positive influence on our mental health.

What do you like to do during weekends? Do you like to go out for a walk? Do you enjoy psychical activity and exercise? Do you believe that spending time outdoors can be beneficial for our health. Do you have some area you enjoy hiking in? Do you have any hiking recommendations to share? What does your typical weekend look like? Do you have a weekend routine or do you like to improvise? Does it ever seem to you that the weekend flies by too fast? Do you have any tips for making it seem longer? I think it is good to take some time for ourselves. Even if there are many chores that we have to do during our weekend, just taking half an hour for ourselves can make them feel less overwhelming. Well, that would be all. 
That would be all for today. As always, thank you for your feedback, visiting and comments, they are always appreciated.You can see some of my art prints and posters inspired by Adriatic here and here

  4. Jelsa looks like a gorgeous place to visit. Great comfy looks! Silence is a beautiful thing. Usually I have music playing while working but sometimes I will be working for 2 hours straight before I realize I am not listening to anything.

  8. Both of your outfits look super comfy for hiking, and what an enchanting place you are taking us to!
    I love port towns and villages, and this one is particularly picturesque surrounded by green hills and unspoiled nature. I'm with you on the health benefits of hiking. We have done very little hiking lately as the weather hasn't been cooperative. How lucky you seem to be with yours! xxx

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…

30+ WAYS TO STYLE A PAIR OF JEANS: SUSTAINABLE FASHION

Hello there, lovely people! I hope you're staying in and staying safe.  In my last post, I blogged about different fashion related things you can do while in corona virus self-isolation or lock-down. One of the things I pointed out is taking this opportunity to become more sustainable in your fashion  choices. I suggested shopping your closet, trying out new looks with the clothes you already own and creating a visual diary (or a folder) with clothing items and outfits you like. If something works for you, why not capitalize on it, especially when it is also beneficial for the environment?

 HOW MANY TIMES YOU SHOULD WEAR AN ITEM TO MAKE IT SUSTAINABLE? Today I'll show you what I like to do to make my fashion choices more sustainable- and that is getting the maximum wear out of an item. So, for a while now I've been creating these 'X ways to wear an X items' posts. These kind of posts take a lot of time to make, because I have to browse my old blog posts and hunt fo…

THIS MUST BE THE PLACE (BOOK REVIEW AND AN EARLY SPRING OUTFIT)

The arrival of spring has been bittersweet. On one hand, it is always beautiful to watch the rebirth of nature, but on the other there is so much anxiety, fear and suffering in the world right now. Perhaps the outfit I'm wearing today is a good metaphor for that. An all black look with some colourful accents. Sometimes I look around me and marvel at all the beauty and yet at the same time I'm aware that dark times might well be ahead of us. Darkness and Light. I suppose that's life. 
Dolazak proljeća je bio gorko sladak. S jedne strane uvijek je prekrasno vidjeti ponovo rađanje prirode, s druge strane ima puno nesigurnosti, straha i patnje u svijetu sada. Možda je odjevna kombinacija koju nosim danas dobra metafora za to. Crna kombinacija s nekim dodacima u boji. Ponekad gledam oko sebe i divim se ljepoti a opet u isto vrijeme dobro znam kako nam se vjerojatno spremaju teška vremena. Tama i svijetlo. Takav je život.  “What redemption there is in being loved: we are always ou…
