TIMELESS BLACK AND BEIGE ELEGANCE


Recently in Norway I came to know a new term of which I was previously unaware – BRUMOUS, a word that, as an adjective, vastly supercedes its literal meaning and relates to a much wider range of narrative variety, referring to cold, wintry, cloudy, foggy, sunless weather. It also perfectly describes conditions in Oslo for the past several days. Whatever gloomy connotations such portrayal may provoke, I'm the type of person who believes that happines, clarity and contentment comes from the inside and that the image of outside world is nothing more than a reflection of our spiritual state, not that the surrounding atmosphere dulls our senses and dims our inner life. Otherwise, we would be too dependant of our immediate ambience and, stressed with somber mood, grimly performing our daily routines. Sometimes we must create our own sun and be mirthful and rife within ourselves, despite the clouds and greyness of days.

Nedavno sam u Norveškoj naučila novu englesku riječ – BRUMOUS, pridjev koji pored svog doslovnog značenja (maglovit) označava puno više: hladno, sivo, oblačno i maglovito vrijeme bez sunca te savršeno opisuje vremenske prilike u Oslu zadnjih nekoliko dana. Bez obzira na sumorne konotacije koje takve riječi izazivaju, ja sam tip osobe koja vjeruje da sreća, vedrina i zadovoljstvo dolaze iznutra i da je slika vanjskoga svijeta projekcija našeg duhovnog stanja, umjesto da okolna atmosfera obilježava i zasjenjuje naše unutarnje živote. U protivnome bi previše ovisili o našem neposrednom okruženju i, pritisnuti tmurnim raspoloženjem, mrzovoljno obavljali svoje dnevne zadatke. Ponekad moramo stvoriti svoje vlastito sunce i biti veseli i ispunjeni unutar sebe, unatoč oblacima i sivilu dana.

Exactly that kind of cloudy skies sparked me for a exploratory walk across Oslo. There is something magical in observing heavy, brewing clouds, something that made me recall my first arrival to Norway, when I gazed at them from the airplane with adoration, feeling how bewitching it is to fly through them and to be engulfed by their dense, intangible whiteness.

Upravo su me takvo vrijeme i oblaci potaknuli na šetnju i istraživanje Osla. Postoji nešto magično u promatranju gustih i teških oblaka, nešto zbog čega sam se prisjetila svog prvog dolaska u Norvešku, kada sam ih s divljenjem gledala iz zrakoplova i osjećala koliko je čarobno letjeti kroz njih i biti okružena samo čistom i netaknutom bjelinom.

 For today's walk I have chosen a turtleneck, leather boots from Lasocki and poshworldbybranislava's fur coat, all in black, because it particularly emphasizes the light beige shades of elegant Zara's skirt and Mango's purse. My liking of the skirt is owed to the silver buttons, an impressionable details that makes it very intriguing and which also accord well with the purse buckle. Like Coco Chanel said, Simplicity is the key note of all true elegance and that is the best description of my today's outfit.

Za današnju šetnju odabrala sam dolčevitu, Lasocki čizme i poshworldbybranislava krznenu bundu, sve u crnoj boji koja osobito naglašava  i ističe nježnu bež nijansu elegantne Zarine suknje i Mango torbice. Suknja mi se prije svega svidjela zbog srebrnih gumbića, upečatljivih detalja koji je čine nadasve zanimljivom, a ujedno se slažu i s kopčom na torbici. Kao što je Coco Chanel rekla, Jednostavnost je ključna nota istinske elegancije i ta rečenica najbolje opisuje moj današnji outfit - jednostavno i elegantno.
Regardless of outward dreary bleakness, I had a wonderful time walking and pacing through the freshly fallen snow and my advice to everyone is: try to be a sun or a rainbow in cloudy day, optimistic attitude and joyfull way of looking at life always opens up opportunities for something good and beatuiful and even if it's not in our grasp at that precise moment, we can find comfort in everlasting wisdom that after hazy days unquestionably come the sunny ones and without former we would not appreciate latter nearly enough. 
Until the next post, best wishes!

Neovisno o vremenu, provela sam divne trenutke u šetnji, koračajući kroz tek napadali snijeg i moj savjet svima glasi: potrudite se biti sunce i duga u oblačnom danu, optimističan stav i pogled na život u svakom trenutku otvara mogućnosti za nešto lijepo i dobro, a ako nam trenutno nisu na dohvat ruke, utjehu možemo pronaći u činjenici da nakon sivih uvijek dolaze i sunčani dani, a bez prvih ne bismo dovoljno cijenili ni druge. 
 Do sljedećeg posta, lijep pozdrav!
