OUTFIT AND BOOK OF THE DAY (LORD OF LIGHT, A NOVEL BY ROGER ZELAZNY)
Hello dear readers! How's February treating you so far? Today I'll share a casual styling with you. I don't wear jeans on everyday basis, but sometimes nothing feels better than a pair of jeans. Jeans are a timeless classic for a reason. Jeans never get old, perhaps because there are endless ways to wear them. If you're looking for some denim outfit inspiration, you can have a look at my visual guide for wearing jeans for autumn and winter. Jeans paired with heeled boots are one of my favourite outfit formulas for autumn and winter. I wore this outfit for a stroll in lovely Jelsa village on island Hvar.
HOW I WORE IT BEFORE?
As always, I try to be more sustainable in my fashion choices and wear my clothes as much a possible. That is one of the reasons why I link up my old outfits. The other reason is to find some fashion inspiration. One of the perks of having a blog is that it is a bit like having a digital closet.
THE LILAC SWEATER
THE STRAIGHT CUT BLUE JEANS
THE AVIATOR JACKET
I borrowed this jacket from my husband. I once wore it with hand painted pants here.
THE BLACK BAG WITH STUDS
This bag was an anniversary gift, but since then I have worn it so many times! See here, here, here , here, here and here.

Lord of Light is one of my all time favourite novels. I think I have already spoke about it on my blog, but as far as I can remember I haven't uploaded a full review of it yet. I do have a copy of this book at home and I reread it regularly. However, when I found a copy of this SF classic in library in Jelsa, I couldn't resist the temptation- I just had to read it again. This novel is basically a story of a human colonization of an unknown planet. A spaceship filled with human crew arrives to an untouched planed. The crew conquered the planet, labeling the intelligent life forms demons and establishing themselves as sole rulers. Their technology soon enables them to live forever and they model themselves after gods in Hinduism. Only one man stands in opposition and that man is one of the original crew.
“His followers called him Mahasamatman and said he was a god. He preferred to drop the Maha- and the -atman, however, and called himself Sam. He never claimed to be a god, but then he never claimed not to be a god.”
Who is Sam? He is one of the original crew, a man who didn't want to be a god but managed to become one anyway. The first chapter opens with Sam being 'rescued' from nirvana (well, a sort of nirvana), but soon the story will digress to tell us more of the past. The novel isn't exactly told in linear fashion and this could be confusing to some. If you have just started this novel, please don't give up. Things become clear enough soon enough. When novels opens up, the gods have already defeated Sam once but with the help of his friends he is about to stage another revolution.
As always, thank you for reading and commenting. Do you like to wear jeans? How do you style them? Have you read any interesting books or novels lately? Have a nice day!
