TWO SPORTY FLORAL OUTFITS FEATURING STRIPED STARTAS SNEAKERS
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 you multiple ways to wear them. Speaking of sustainable fashion, once again I shopped my closet for these outfits and there are links bellow to prove it. Scroll down to see and read more.
Zdravo! Kako ste? Kakva je vaša jesen zasada? Nažalost, ne mogu reći da mi ide jako dobro. Nosim se s puno kroničnih bolova zbog Kronove bolesti. Dobivanje liječničke pomoći u ovo vrijeme nije lako. Vi koji imate kronične i imunološke bolesti znate o čemu govorim. Nije lako vrijeme za nas. Možda ću se morati pauzirati s blogom (ili objavljivati rjeđe) jer sam stvarno iscrpljena od toga da sam u bolovima većinu vremena.
Prelazak na svjetlije teme. Danas ću sa vama podijeliti dvije divne destinacije savršene za šetnju i dvije odjevne kombinacije prikladne za šetanje. Ove dvije kombinacije imaju nešto zajedničko, a to je to da su bazirane na cvjetnom uzorku i da obje sadrže kultni par Startas tenisica. Obožavam ovu hrvatsku marku. Prilično sam sigurna da dostigla 30 nošenja s ovim tenisicama pa bih im u budućnosti mogla posvetiti post koji će vam pokazati više načina na koje ih nositi. Kad smo već kod održive mode, još sam jednom u ormaru pronašla sve što nosim, a ispod postoje poveznice (linkovi) koji to dokazuju. Spustite se niže da biste vidjeli i pročitali više.
OUTFIT NUMBER #1- AN OLIVE LONG SLEEVED T-SHIRT PAIRED WITH A FLORAL SKIRT, BURGUNDY TIGHTS, RATAN FABRIC BEIGE MINI BAG AND STARTAS SNEAKERS
I love the colours in this look. Olive green is such a gorgeous shade and it seems to work with everything. I paired with with a floral skirt and burgundy tights. I added a bit more colour with the oversize scarf. The striped sneakers add a subtle mix of print to this comfy styling.

LOCATION- ČAPLJINA, A TOWN WITH THE TALLEST POPULATION IN THE WORLD
One thing you will notice if you visit Herzegovina is that people are taller than average. Well, that is especially the case in Čapljina. This is the city that has the tallest people (on average) in the world. If you want to see more of this place, you may visit some of my old posts. Check out the links bellow.
Čapljina is a very pedestrian friendly town. There's much to see and do: explore Neretva river, try the gastronomical offer, visit Roman villa Mogorjelo and enjoy horse riding. Don't forget about Hutovo blato nature park! It is located in the vicinity and it's simply a must visit if you're in the area. Moreover, in Hutovo blato park there is a bridge that is even older than the old bridge in Mostar. Most people miss it, but it's literally right there at the entrance to the nature park (visit this post to see what it looks like).
1. Mogorjelo ( a post focused on describing the historical sight Mogorjelo with an ancient Roman villa)
2. Wearing a red puffer and Taking a stroll in Čapljina ( an outfit post but one featuring many photographs of the city as well)
3. Another Strolling Around Čapljina Post (the link is pretty self-explanatory)
4. More Photographs of the City Centre (again the link says it all)
5. Train Station in Čapljina (perfect for train lovers and photo taking, you can also take a train from Mostar to Čapljina but the lines are not too frequent. You'll have to look them up for more details).
6. A summer Dress in Autumnn (Čapljina) An Autumnal visit to Čapljina
7. 3 Amazing Cities to Visit in Herzegovina (besides Mostar) Čapljina is definitely one of the cities worth visiting!
8. Horse Riding Options in Čapljina If you didn't know, you can go horse riding near to Roman ruins.
9. A Winter Visit to Čapljina- Because Čapljina is lovely any time of the year.
Moving onto my second outfit. I wore this while it was still warm. Now, that it has gotten colder, I would need to add tights and a jacket to make this look wearable but not too long ago, this outfit was perfect for the weather we had.

LOCATION BUNA (BUNICA) RIVER AND RECREATIONAL AREA
MY PREVIOUS VISITS TO BUNA:
OLDER VISITS TO BUNA AND MORE INFO ABOUT THIS GREEN OASIS
Bunica recreational zone is such a lovely place, especially in summer time. Swimming is allowed as the rivers here aren't dangerous. I'd say they're much a safer option that Neretva river that is quite cold, big and fast. If you're staying in Mostar, Buna is a must see place as it is quite near. Alternatively, you can also choose to stay here. There are motels and villas here, and there is also some private accommodation available. If you're a bird lover (especially a duck lover) bring some bread with you, because the ducks here seem to be always hungry. Moreover, ducks are not the only birds you can see there. If you're into bird-watching, this is a pretty good spot. I've saw some interesting birds here in the past, mostly woodpeckers, so I'd say Bunica is a nice destination for bird watching. For example in 2013, I showed you a photograph I took of a beautiful bird Euroasian Hoopoe. The same year, I showed you the spring of river Buna that is said to be the most powerful spring in Europe. If, you want to see more of this place, you can read about one of my earliest visits here (2013), you can see an outfit post with Buna in the background here (2013), you can read about spring time and my love of flowers here (2017), you can read about my most recent visit here (2017), you can read about winter magic in Buna revisited post here (2016), you can read about summer magic here (2015). Bellow you can find even more links to some of my older posts about Buna and my visits to this place:
STARIJI POSJETI BUNI I VIŠE INFORMACIJA O OVOJ ZELENOJ OAZI
Rekreacijska zona Bunica tako je lijepo mjesto. Ovdje se nalaze moteli i vile, a na raspolaganju je i privatni smještaj. Ako ste ljubitelj ptica (posebno ljubitelji patki), ponesite sa sobom kruha jer se čini da su patke ovdje uvijek gladne. Štoviše, patke nisu jedine ptice koje tamo možete vidjeti. Ako volite promatranje ptica, ovo je zaista dobro mjesto za to. Ovdje sam već vidjela neke zanimljive ptice, uglavnom djetliće, pa bih rekla da je Bunica lijepo odredište za promatranje ptica. Na primjer, 2013. godine pokazala sam vam fotografiju jedne prekrasne ptice euroazijske hoopoe . Iste godine pokazala sam vam izvor rijeke Bune za koji se kaže da je najsnažniji izvor u Europi. Ako želite vidjeti više od ovog mjesta, možete pročitati o jednom od mojih prvih posjeta ovdje (2013), možete vidjeti post s Bunom u pozadini ovdje (2013), možete čitati o proljeću i ljubavi prema cvijeću ovdje (2017.), možete pročitati o mojem posljednjem posjetu ovdje (2017.), možete pročitati o zimskoj čaroliji u Buni, ponovno objavljeni post ovdje (2016.), o ljetnoj čaroliji možete pročitati ovdje (2015). Ispod možete pronaći još više poveznica na neke od mojih starijih postova o Buni i mojim posjetima ovom mjestu:
Thank you for reading! Have a lovely day!
