In response to Daily Post’s Rise/Set
As promised, I am publishing photos from my Munich travel. This will be a short post with mostly photos and where they were taken.
The first and most amazing sight we (my boyfriend and I) went to see is the Nymphenburg castle. Amazing architectural accomplishments and magnificent exterior are definitely what makes this castle worth seeing. We also had lunch in their Palmhaus (translated Palmtreehouse) and ate an amazing burger called Nymphenburger, in honor of the place. The castle is surrounded by lakes which are full of swans and ducks, so naturally, this is a great place to get photos.
Next, we went shopping in the city center known as Marienplatz. It is shops on shops everywhere you look and if you are a shopaholic you almost forget about everything else that place has to offer. Amazing cathedral, and small interesting sites worth photographing like these lions and that beautiful golden-yellow door. Of course, I took the chance of going to Starbucks since there isn’t one in Croatia. I drank the strawberry and cream cappuccino and they actually got my name right, my boyfriend, on the other hand, drank a chamomile tea, probably the best chamomile tea we both ever tried. Well done Starbucks!!
Lastly, I also took a chance to try the notorious new Kinder Bueno ice cream. It really doesn’t remind of anything like the candy with whom it shares the name but it’s still good. Just good, so don’t kill each other for it!!
All in all my trip was lovely and interesting. I got sick on my last day and I lost my ID on the first day (yes, I am that stupid, but they found it a few days after I got back to Croatia with a pass from Croatian embassy), but nonetheless, I had a great time because I was in great company!!

Bag: Local shop
Long time no see. I haven’t posted in months and really I don’t have a good explanation for myself. This post has been in the making for almost a month, but it seems like I could bring myself upon publishing it for some reason. So, this is going to be my second post this year, and consequently the second outfit inspiration of the week. I am planning to publish my Munich trip post in a span of a week, but will see about that won’t’ we. Without further digression here are my outfit details.
First, of course, we have to give props to my amazing coat from Mango that I really got a lot of use these past few months, but I also have to mention that this particular day was the last day that a coat could be worn since after that day the weather got so cold that there was no way you can survive in a coat. I really love the fact it is grey and not black because, as you can see in the photos, it breaks up the color scheme perfectly.
I cannot hide how obsessed I am with my over the knee boots from Mass. I honestly don’t wear them as often as I would like it, but when I do my outfit is next level good. They are black and heeled so they can bring every outfit up, on a dressier side, especially with a dress or a skirt, like here.
The skirt is from H&M, I got it this summer, but I have been wearing it all year, through all seasons, so definitely money well spent. The zipper in front has been a huge trend last season and judging by outfits on Instagram that trend will keep on growing this season, which is fine by me. The thing with these types of skirts is that you can wear them equally with tight and flowy shirts without it looking too much, so you can basically combine it with almost all shirts from your wardrobe and it will look good.
The shirt is also from H&M, it is actually a cropped shirt so it looks like I had to tuck the excess material in, which is something you can do but here that was unnecessary. I personally don’t really own a lot of shirts in color, especially red ones, so this shirt really stands out both in my wardrobe and this outfit.
My bag was featured in plenty of my past outfit inspiration posts, so if you are a regular reader you already know all about it. It is a simple black crossbody bag with some studs. What is new about it is a keychain that I attached to it. The keychain was a birthday gift from my boyfriend, and it is a fussy bordeaux heart.
That will be all for today, the photos were taken in Zagreb’s Zoo by my boyfriend. We spent the whole day there as a cute date before my birthday. Needless to say, we had a lot of fun and were happy like a couple of children the whole time.

Jeans: Zara Woman
Tights: New Yorker
First outfit post of the year. We are starting pretty much the same as we did last year, so nothing crazy and new. Definitely a different style and location, that’s true, so keep on reading if you want to get a closer look at what I am wearing.
I cannot ever say enough about this amazing coat I got in Mango, it’s so simple but stylish and it brings every single outfit together. I never thought my petite body could look good when wearing a long coat but this piece proved me wrong. A great investment definitely!
Again my classic ripped jeans with some glittery tights underneath so I am warm. Just love how this looks, I mean every interesting pair of tights work, but these ones are my favorite because they are a detail that elevates the whole look to be a bit more put together. And let me tell you, I found them in my wardrobe because I wore them maybe once a few years ago and now I am wearing them almost every single day. Sometimes hoarding clothes pays out.
My new boots from Zara are another addition to my ever-growing collection of boots, but these are the ones that I probably wear the most since they are black and not heeled. The studs make them a bit grungy which I like. In addition to that grungy little moment, I added some black stud earrings.
Last, but definitely not the least, my new sweater from Stradivarius which is probably the most loved item in my closet right now. It is so soft that you feel like you are wearing a blanket and all you want to do is to rub your face on it. The color matches my neutral palette when it comes to clothing so I have many combinations to wear it with.
That will be all for now. These beautiful photos were taken by my amazing boyfriend on our walk around the Blue Lake. Had a great time and got a lot of great photos, there is no better than that!

Again, for the third year in a row, Zagreb has been chosen as the best advent place and given that I actually live here for most of the time in next few years I thought it was only right to check some places out and present you what the advent is all about.
I haven’t really been out every single day to see everything but some high points will be shown in both photographs and my commentary. I hope you like this post and consider checking Zagreb’s advent this year (for what is even left of it) or perhaps next year since it can only get better from here!
One of the most beautiful attractions (and one of the most photographed as well) is the Marićev prolaz that is decorated in such a way to look absolutely magical. It’s actually a passway (that’s what prolaz means in Croatian) that is decorated just in this time of the year (and correct me if I am wrong you who know better, I think this is the first year they did something like this for advent). The tiny lights on those branches make up such a romantic and wonderful place that the passway is usually packed with people so it is hard to take a nice photo. So if you want to do so, I advise you to go a bit earlier in the morning or later at night when most of the tourist groups aren’t around.
This is the famous park Zrinjevac in the center of Zagreb. Switching on the lights, that you can see in these photos, for the first time always signifies the beginning of Advent and it is an event a lot of people come to see. The park is usually, by itself, beautiful but for Advent, at night it becomes a place that you must visit just to see the magic of millions of lights around it.
Ice park on the King Tomislav Square is one of the most visited sites every advent. It really is magical and romantic to ice skate with the scenery surrounding you, especially at night when the lights go on. I have been there to skate 3 times and I wish I could have been every single day. The tickets aren’t that pricey but they do go away quickly for the closest session on weekends.
That will be all for this posts! I wish you all the best in the new year that is in front of us, and I hope you spent your holidays well.
