TWO SPORTY FLORAL OUTFITS FEATURING STRIPED STARTAS SNEAKERS

Image
Hello, how are you doing? How is Autumn treating you? Unfortunately, I cannot say that I'm doing very well. I'm dealing with a lot of chronic pain due to Chron illness. Getting medical help in the pandemic is not easy. Those of you who have chronic and immune illnesses know what I'm talking about. Not an easy time for us. I might have to take a break from blogging (or blog less often) as I'm really exhausted from being in pain most of the time.   Moving onto brighter subjects. Today I will share two destinations perfect for strolling and two 'strolling friendly' outfits with you. Čapljina and Buna are great destinations for strolling around, walking and hiking. Both of them are in Herzegovina.  I'll share two sporty floral outfits with you, both of them featuring an iconic pair of Startas sneakers. I love this Croatian brand. I'm pretty sure I'm over 30 wears with this pair of sneakers so I might devote a post to them some time in the future, showing

I LOVE SPLIT CITY (TWO EARLY AUTUMN OUTFITS)

Image
 Hello readers! Today I will share with you two early autumn outfits. They look more like summer outfits, though. The weather has been warm this Autumn so far. We're expecting some rain today but up to now the weather has been quite summery and so have my outfits. As you know, I'm currently in my home city Split (Croatia). I do love strolling this city. Autumn strolls can be especially rewarding. There's something melancholic and sweet about that time when Summer gives way to Autumn.  OUTFIT NUMBER #1- A ONE SHOULDER BLUE DRESS WITH STUDS WORN UNDER A PINK FLORAL SKIRT AND PAIRED WITH A MINI CROSS OVER BAG AND BEIGE LOAFERS Once again I tried the 'wear a dress as a top' tricky. You can see how I wore this blue dress with an olive blazer here .  When it comes to the pastel pink skirt I wore it with, I think it's vintage (I'm pretty sure it belonged to my mother). I wasn't able to track this skirt in my blog archives despite being certain that I wore it b

TRAVEL WITH MY ART #22: MAKARSKA TOWN, CROATIA

 Hello there! Happy Sunday! How's October treating you so far? Here in Dalmatia (Croatia), it's rather warm and sunny. There are still tourists around and who could blame them? Now is probably the best time to enjoy one's vacation, especially if you don't like the crowds and like to have your personal space to yourself. You could say it still feels like summer, especially mid day when the sun is so strong. The painting I will share with you today is also bathed in sunshine. Yes, I have another painting to share with you.  A few months ago, I started an art feature with the goal of sharing my paintings and illustrations of different places. So far, I have painted more than 22 paintings and took you to many places along the way, most of them located in Croatia (because that's the area I know best) but you never know what might inspire me next. Today I will share another TRAVEL WITH MY ART POST . I shared one yesterday , but I feel like continuing on an art note, so wh

TRAVEL WITH MY ART #21: STARI GRAD, ISLAND HVAR

Hello dear readers! How are you doing? Today it's time for another TRAVEL WITH MY ART post and that means I'll share a new acrylic panting with you. Like most of my art in this series, this painting is a seascape. You guys know that sea is one of main sources of inspiration for me.  Moreover, island Hvar is often a subject of my paintings. This one is no exception. This painting was inspired by photographs taken last April near hotel Arkada, Stari Grad city (island Hvar). Like the last painting in my series,  this acrylic painting was done on mixed media paper in  A4 format is. Therefore, it's neither a large painting nor a very detailed one. I wanted to make a pretty seascape  and that's it.  I worked on it for two days for a couple of hours. It was done at the same time (almost simultaneously as the last painting I shared. Like with the last seascape, I was trying to paint this one faster that I usually do my seascapes. Basically, the aim was to capture the sea quickl
