When it gets cold........Kada zahladi..........


 What is your solution for those really cold days? I tend to fight the cold with layering and exposing as little skin as possible. That means scarves, gloves, caps, puffers and long coats....all those things I like to call full winter gear. Lately I've been quite enjoying this challenge of wearing as much clothes as humanly possible. This year (perhaps for the first time), I'm not at all impatient for the Spring to arrive but rather I'm enjoying this Winter. I'm not complaining about the wind (south or nothern) and I'm not bothered by the rain. If the night is too cold for a long evening walk, I have my fabulous book collection to rely on.

Koje je vaše rješenje za one doista hladne dane? Ja se nosim s hladnoćom uz pomoć slojevitoga odijevanja i minimalnoga otkrivanja kože. To znači šalove, rukavice, kape, debele jakne i duge kapute...i sve te stvari koje volim zvati punom zimskog opremom.  U zadnje vrijeme poprilično uživam u tom izazovu nošenja što više odjeće. Ove godine (možda čak po prvi put), nisam nestrpljiva za dolaskom proljeća već baš uživam u zimi. Ne žalim se na vjetar (južni ili sjeverni) i ne smeta mi kiša. Ukoliko je noć previše hladna za dugu večernju šetnju, mogu se osloniti na svoju lijepu kolekciju knjiga. 







When  it comes to my personal librabry, this is one of the pretties books I own. I know one isn't supposed to judge a book by its covers, but I do like pretty covers and you can't blame me for that. This edition is a selection of poems from older Croatian poetry. I was familiar with most of these poems, but I love having them all in one place. I have read one critique of this edition ( a few moments ago while I was preparing this post), that says that it lacks a preface and information about the poems. I can't say I agree with it. If you really like older Croatian poetry, you will not need an introduction...and if you don't, you probably won't buy this book in the first place, will you? Fifty nine authors were included in this edition, so you do get a very fair selection.

Ovo je jedna od najljepših knjiga u mojoj osobnoj knjižnici. Znam ja dobro da se knjiga ne sudi po koricama, ali volim lijepe korice i ne možete me zbog toga kriviti. Ova knjiga je izbor pjesama iz starijega hrvatskoga pjesništva. Već sam poznavala većinu tih pjesama, ali ih volim imati na jednom mjestu. Pročitala sam jednu kritiku ovog izdanja (prije par minuta dok sam spremala ovu objavu) koja kaže kako ovoj knjizi nedostaje proslov i podaci koji bi išli uz pjesme. Ne mogu reći da se slažem. Volite li doista stariju hrvatsku književnost, ne treba vam uvod, a ako je ne volite, onda vjerojatno nećete ni kupiti ovu knjigu, zar ne? Pedeset i devet književnika je uključeno u ovo izdanje, tako da je to doista dobar izbor.








I personally with it charming when an editor is modest enough not to impose his own opinions but rather leaves it to us to form our own opinions about the literary work in question. Naturally, an insightful perspective into any work of literature is always welcome but I also like editions like this one, editions that are just like a simple frame for a beautiful painting. Nowadays, historical information is within a hand's reach, you can quite easily find scientific articles online,  so I don't see the point of having a lot of historical content in a selection of poetry. What I'm trying to say is that I wouldn't change a thing and personally I would love to see this book reprinted in exactly the same shape and form. The cover is wonderfully subtle and the title is adorable.

Meni je osobno baš šarmatno kada je urednik dovoljno skroman da ne nameće svoje mišljenje, nego ostavlja nama da sami oblikujemo svoje mišljenje. Naravno, dobar uvid u svako književno djelo je uvijek dobro došao, ali volim i izdanja kao što je ovo, izdanja koja su kao jednostavan okvir za prekrasnu sliku. Povijesni podaci su danas stvarno nadohvat ruke i lako je pronaći povijesne podatke i znanstvene članke na internetu pa nekako i ne vidim potrebu za puno povijesnih podataka u izboru iz poezije. Ono što pokušavam reći je da ne bih ništa mijenjala, već bi voljela vidjeti ponovo izdanje ove knjige u istom obliku. Naslovnica je divno suptilna, a naslov je simpatičan.

Now, a few more words about the outfit. I've always loved flare jeans and when I found this orange pair of flares, I didn't hesistate. Well to be honest,  I did  hesistate a bit but my significant other didn't. I don't know, it is almost strange being able to find all the kind of flares in the shops. Frankly, I got so used to my vintage jeans (despite the fact they're in poor condition by now). Right now, it feels almost like cheating, the act of going into a store and buying a modern version. It seems almost too easy. Maybe I'm just weird. The fact that these jeans are a bit shorter than they should be on me helps with my selfgult for not being them in the second hand shop. Plus, they are the right size only when I'm wearing leggings underneath. So, vintage jeans are still  a better choice for me personally because they still don't make jeans that fit me perfectly.

Sada još par riječi o odjevnoj kombinaciji. Uvijek sam voljela traperice na zvono i kada sam pronašla ovaj narančasti par, nisam oklijevala...zapravo jesam, ali moja druga polovica nije. Ne znam, nekako mi je čudno to što su sada zvone dostupne u svim dućanima. Već sam se naučila na to da se oslanjam na vintage komade (iako su oni koje imam stvarno već previše iznošeni). Svejedno, još nekako imam osjećaj da varam kada uđem u dućan i kupim modernu verziju, nekako mi se čini prelakim. To što su mi malo kratke mi pomaže oko te samokrivnje...a i veličina mi odgovara samo kad nosim tajice ispod. Tako da, vintage traperice su još uvijek bolje, barem meni bolje pristaju jer još ne mogu naći svoju veličinu u dućanima.

Should I say something about the location as well? Well, these photographs were all taken in the vicinity of Mostar, under a sky that is often magificently blue...and so it was on this particulary lovely day. My moral of the day? Enjoy and appreciate what you have, don't envy other but  make the most out of every day. Above all,  try to find something to love and be devoted to because that will make your heart sing.

Trebam li reći nešto i o lokaciji? Ove su fotografije uslikane blizu Mostara , ispod neba koje je veličanstveno plavo...kao što je  bilo ovoga posebno ljupkoga dana. Moja pouka dana? Uživajte u onome što imate, ne zavidite durgima nego pokušajte iskoristiti dan na najbolji način. Prije svega, pokušajte pronaći nešto što ćete voljeti i čemu ćete se posvetiti jer to će vaše srce naučiti pjevati.

  1. What a lovely post Ivana! The poetry sounds very interesting. Your shirt is so adorable, with the text and drawing on it :-). The pants are beautiful too, I get what you mean with the cheating, but if it looks good, it looks good :-D. Many greetings from a busy bee xxx

  8. Jako volim poeziju i prema tome volim čitati i tvoje postove o njoj jer si uvijek tako pozitivna, tj.imaš pozitivan stav prema svemu, pokušavaš uživati iako sunce ne sija, navikneš na kišu i hladno vrijeme. Zaljubila sam se u kroj traperica a i boja je predivna! Super post! :) xx

  12. Personally I have different point of view when it comes to the wind - it's so cold, so I'm waiting for the Spring impatiently, hopefully I heard that warmer days are coming :) And you're right - it's really great idea to wear as many clothes as it possible, because it's really easy to catch a flu. You look so pretty, Ivana, I love your makeup, your skin looks so flawless, dear! :)

  14. I agree about books - a book can be a work of art in every sense, the cover as beautiful as the content, the paper is nice to touch, the print is high quality... it's all a treasure! I don't have many books of such level, but I do enjoy those I have tremendously.

    I like your attitude towards winter. I rather enjoy dressing up for our mild winter as well, but I admit that too much gray weather makes me feel sad. I love rain, but I also love sunshine, at least from time to time. :)

    You look cozy and stylish, ant those bell bottoms are great! Love the color, I'd buy them too!

  20. Pravo da ti kažem, ja sam i zaboravila šta je prava zima i slojevito oblačenje. Kiša i vetar takođe :D Ne bunim se, ali isto tako ne želim da se nadokadi to sve kada uđemo u proleće. Izgledaš tako ušuškano, a opet sa stilom. Pantalone su baš pun pogodak i nekako posebne. To što su kraće im daje posebnu draž :) Moram priznati da slabo stojim sa hrvatskom književnošću, što ne znači da nameravam da tako i ostane ;)

  32. Wonderful way to express your winter style. When it gets really cold as it has been lately, I tend to wear layers and stay warm with tights. Although some comfy fur element doesn't hurt either. It's always a good thing to have gratitude and enjoy life. Have a great rest of your week.

    that's a great outfit for cold days - I prefer the "onion" look on such days just like you! Especially nice is your "fur cape", and my favorite photos of you are these, where are you smiling so brightly. Thus you fit the friendly sky ;o)) Sometimes I buy books for their beautiful or witty covers, too - and discovered already some interesting authors ...

    Lots of hugs from Austria,

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
