Što obući na posao?/What to wear to work?

Jesam li ja ono rekla da će postovi biti češći?
Stan mi je poplavljen, toliko da ne živim u njemu. Malo je komplicirano naći i vrijeme i uvjete za pisati blog.
Dosta postova čeka na red da ih uredim i pustim u svijet.

Današnji outfit je prvi put, ove jeseni, da nosim i grilonke i duge rukave i još sako povrh.
Do popodneva sam se skuhala, jer popodne je bilo divno, toplo, za razliku od jutra.

Ovo je moj jedini bež pulover, kupljen u Zari u proljeće. Puno bežastih stvari pretvara me u leša, kad su mi blizu lica. Ja zaista nemam put za te boje mesa, pijeska, lososa, jer izgledam krivo. Ovo je, nakon dugo traženja, pulover koji mi paše i bojom i krojem.

Batine oxfordice su, nakon ljeta u sandalama, tvrde i krute. Moram se naviknuti opet nositi zatvorene cipele.



I know I said I will write more often, but I have a really good reason for not writting.
My flat was flooded, that much that I'm not living there at the moment.
It is a bit tricky finding time and opportunity for sitting down and writing
But it won't last too long, and I have posts waiting to be last -time -checked and posted, I'm just waiting for my everyday life to become more normal.

Today was the first working day I wore tights and long sleeves and a jacket. Of course, by the time I finished with my work, it was too warm outside.
This beige pullover is the only beige one I own. I have issues with colours like beige, pastels, salmon and similar. I usually look dead.
This is the only one I have found to suit me in colour and shape.

Bata brogues felt weird after wearing sandals all summer.
I must learn again how to wear shoes for fall.

Kraj ljeta/ The end of summer


Prilično neplanski imala sam morski godišnji, i provela zadnje dane ljeta uz sunce, more, zrikavce i valove.
Vratila sam se na kontinent i dočekala me jesen. Jesen je super, mozak mi radi i nisam vječno umorna (bar za sad).
Još uvijek mi nije dovoljno hladno za jakne, ali zadnjih dana ne znam se obuć kak treba.
Postovi bi odsad nadalje trebali biti češći.
Nadam se da vam prijelaz u jesen odgovara.

I spent the end of summer on a summer vacation, that wasn't really planned.
The last warm and sunny days this year I lived on the coast, with sun and waves and crickets.
I came back to the continent and fall waited me there. I like fall, I can think clearly and I'm not tired all the time (at least, not at the moment).
I can't decide what to wear to work, I don't know what's the season at the moment.
Blog posts should be more posted more often from now on.

I hope you're happy with the season transition.

Životni./ Life lately.



Obavljam danas nešto po gradu, i dok sam čekala na red, slušam radio.
Nekakve glazbene vijesti. I priča spikerica kako u Twin Peaksu malu ulogu ima pjevač Deep Purplea koji otpjeva nešto svoje, a to neka poznata pjesma.
Služam ja spikericu, nastavila je dalje pričati, no ja sam od svega toga razumjela jedino Twin Peaks i Deep Purple. Zar je došlo do tog da više ne znam ni glazbene vijesti?


Ne da ne znam glazbene vijesti, otkrila sam da ne znam ni pjesme.  Ispast će da živim u pećini i da nisam uopće ukorak s vremenom. Masu bendova i pjevača/ica ne da ne znam po izgledu, ne prepoznajem ni imena, a bome većina tih pjesama mi ne ostaje dugo u ušima.

Jel to znak da me glazbeno vrijeme pregazilo?


(Fotografija neba prije pljuska prije par dana, dok sam u vrtu čekala početak.)






While running some errands today, I listened to the radio. There were some music news, and while I was listening to the speaker's voice on some cameo role Deep Purple singer has in Twin Peaks series, I've realized I only understood Twin Peaks and Deep Purple part, with everything else covered in unknown information. Have I come to a point where I don't recognize singers and bands any more?

Not only I'm not familiar with popular singers and bands, I don't even know their songs, their videos and their looks.
Is this the sign that music times have gone and left me behind?

Projekt, kolovoz./ One year project, August



Bila sam na godišnjem pa je blog malo utihnuo, no godišnji nisu beskonačni i evo mene nazad.
Prvi mjesec mog projekta nekupovanja, i organiziranja onog što imam, se lagano privodi kraju.
Za sada ne mogu reći da sam imala neki problem s netrošenjem na nepotrebno.
Uz one mahnite vrućine nisam imala volje nizašta, a zatim sam uzela godišnji deset dana i nisam bila blizu dućanima. To isto olakšava stvar :)

Triput mi se desilo da sam u sebi poskočila jer sam vidjela nešto zanimljivo, vrijedno gledanja i mogućeg kupovanja: na netu sam vidjela oglas za sniženja nekih vintage haljina, u Trogiru u šetnji sam vidjela zlatne naušnice u izlogu i poželjela sam ući, probati i vidjeti što mi paše, i zadnje se desilo jutros, kad sam u šetnji s kontrole iz bolnice vidjela par lijepih haljina u izlogu Centre (mislim). Oglas na fejsu sam odmah ubila, od zlatarnice sam odšetala, a jutros sam već znala prepoznati svoju reakciju, pogledala sam haljine izvana, kroz izlog stakla, i odšetala dalje.

Što se tiče organiziranja stvari, mičem po redu sve čemu je istekao rok, i ono što je palo na svim testovima trebat će/za svaki slučaj/ nikad ne znaš počelo je letiti van.
U mjernim jedinicama čišćenja, to su četiri para cipela/čizama i velika vrećica odjeće za H&M, te dosta stvari koje su letile u smeće, od nefunkcionalnog luftića do papirića po policama.
Cipele i čizme su stajale u ormaru strpljivo, čizme više od deset godina, cipele malo manje.
Čizme su kupljene za doček jedne Nove, u doba dok sam još kupovala čizme da doček (ne znam što mi je bilo, valjda višak novaca i manje godina), i onda sam od svih čizama kupila najneudobnije, s tankom petom od 10 cm i na špic. Ja ne nosim špic i nikad prije ni poslije nisam tako nešto poželjela ni kupila. sjećam se da sam i nadočeku morala sjest svako toliko jer su me noge boljele u njima.

Plan je jednom do dvaput mjesečno ovdje voditi evidenciju rada.
Mislim da u prvom postu nisam navela pojedinosti, pa slijede sad. U periodu do idućeg kolovoza mogu kupiti par stvari koje su već bile u planu (donji veš, futrane gumene čizme za zimu).
Potrošnja je dozvoljena za sve životne stvari: namirnice, lijekove, režije, preparativna kozmetika, sve što je zapravo potrebno.
Ono što ne ulazi u navedeno iznad su odjeća, obuća, nakit, dekorativna kozmetika, sto onih pizdarijica koje (mi) inače prolete ispod radara, od lakova za nokte s blagajne do nečeg što je na sniženju ili sam skupila bodove ili je eto baš na prodaju za kićenje bora..vjerojatno znate kako to već ide.

Za sada osjećam veliko olakšanje dok prolazim kroz ormare i selektiram. Osim toga, dobila sam poriv zakrpati pulovere za nadolazeću jesen i sašiti par stvari. Kao da se otvorio kreativni ventil koji inače teško dolazi do izražaja.

*******************************

I've been on vacation and the blog was a bit sleepy for two weeks, but vacations have an end, unfortunately, so I'm back again and have the first One year project post today.

It's been almost a months since I have decided not to purchase clothes and shoes and other stuff for one whole year.
Since August started with hot weather and continued with my vacation, I didn't have much opportunity for going to the stores. To be honest, these first 3 weeks passed better then I thought they would.
I've had three moments when I felt the urge to try shopping. One online sale ad, one window shopping yesterday, and strangely, one jewelry shop where I noticed golden earrings and felt sudden need to step inside and try them on. I didn't.

I have filled one big plastic bag with clothes I'll bring to H&M, where people can leave old textile and get 15% off for one purchase. I have taken 4 pairs of shoes and boots from my shoe closet. Speaking of boots, the ones I throw out were worn twice, 10 years ago. I don't know what was I thinking, I bought boots for a New Years's Eve, and they were uncomfortable even the first day. They weren't cheap, and it is not something I usually wear- stiletto. I looked like a witch wearing them. I can't even remember the times I was buying clothes for New Year's Eve, I suppose it was the time when I had more money and less years.

There is a feeling of joy overwhelming me in moments of closet organizing. I feel enthusiastic removing unnecessary things from my life.
I don't push it, I know I'll have enough time, so I remove only stuff I have no sadness when throwing it into garbage.
I simply go through the stuff and weigh, and if I feel ok with it, there it goes.

I know my first post on this subject was long and maybe not coherent, so now I'll repeat what this is all about.
For a year, till the next August, in 2018, I've decided not to purchase clothes, shoes, or anything not important for the living.
This includes decorative cosmetics, holiday ornaments, and all other not necessary stuff that usually comes into my mind.

And one more thing: since I've started with it, now I have so much urge to be creative and sew something. and repair the wardrobe I have. I spent last Sunday repairing woolen pullovers to be ready for upcoming autumn.
