Rijeka



Many of you already know, I'm Croatian, and Rijeka is my hometown. It's a town where I was born and raised, and lived pretty much until I was 26. When I was 22 I first moved away from Rijeka, first to Milan, Italy, to study, then London, UK. 
But, after a few years I came back to Rijeka, lived and worked there until I got married, when I was 26.
It's already been 7 years that I live in Italy! I still like to visit Rijeka as often as I can, my family, my friends, and my croatian home...
These photos were taken when I was visiting Rijeka a few months ago...
I'm taking you on a little "tour of Rijeka" through these photos...first you'll see photos from the narrow streets of Rijeka in the parts of town close to the center, and then our walk continues all the way to the centre of Rijeka, to the town's port, called "Riva".
I always liked living close to the sea, opening my bedroom windows to see the Adriatic Sea and the islands...this is what I miss the most now that I live in Italy!

My outfit consists of my comfy, black Dr.Martens (the traffic in Rijeka is pretty crazy, so I suggest walking whenever you can!) and my wool, plaid pants by Benetton, that I actually bought more than 10 years ago in the centre of Rijeka! I stopped wearing them for a while, but then rediscovered them in my wardrobe a year or two ago, and since then have been wearing them again non stop! :-)
Because they're made out of wool, they're super warm, ideal for colder days, but they can be a bit itchy against the skin, so I always wear them with a pair of tights!
I love when I have a good quality pieces in my wardrobe, that last in time!
This leather backpack is another great buy, a timeless piece! I got it when I just finished high-school, it has a pretty unique design, handmade by a local designer/ brand, Raffaella fashion. I don't know if they still exist as a brand, but their backpack has accompanied me on many trips and adventures and it's still in the perfect condition!

Danas za vas imam jedan novi outfit post, kroz koji cu vas povesti na mali "tour" mojeg grada, Rijeke. 
Kao sto mnogi znate, ja zivim u Italiji, ali inace sam Hrvatica, rodjena i odrasla u Rijeci. 
U gradu na Rjecini zivjela sam, uz poneke prekide, vise-manje, do svoje 26.godine. 
Prvi puta napustila sam Rijeku u 22. godini, kada sam otisla na strucno usavrsavanje u Milano, Italiju...zatim je slijedio put u London, a nakon par godina vratila sam se bila u Rijeku i tamo zivjela i radila do svoje 26. godine, tj. do udaje.
Sada zivim u Italiji i proletjelo je vec 7 godina! Ipak, nastojim cesto posjetiti Rijeku, svoju obitelj, prijatelje i svoj hrvatski dom :-)
Na jednom takvom boravku u Rijeci, nedavno,  nastale su i ove fotografije.
Na njima vas vodim kroz uske i strme, karakteristicne ulicice Rijeke, smjestene blizu samog centra, do obale i Rijecke luke...Mozda jedna od stvari koje mi sada najvise nedostaju jest upravo prekrasni pogled na zaljev i otoke, iz moje spavace sobe...

Dotaknimo se outfita...Nosim moje omiljene, crne "Marte" (promet u Rijeci je ludnica, kada sam tamo volim pjesaciti, moj tata je uvijek znao reci "cipel-cug"...haha upravo sam se nasmijala od ove pomisli!)...Vunene hlace kupila sam u Benettonu u Rijeci, ali jos prije vise od 10 godina! Ako se netko tko je iz Rijeke, a cita ovaj tekst, sjeca, kada je Benetton jos bio na samom Korzu! Volim te kvalitetne komade odjece koje mogu nositi dugi niz godina!
Kada smo vec kod kvalitete i "bezvremenskih" komada u mojem ormaru, i ovaj kozni rusak moram pohvaliti! Kupila sam ga kada sam tek zavrsila srednju skolu, u jednom rijeckom butiku. Rucno je radjen i unikatan, a proizvodjac bio je Raffaella fashion, rijecki dizajner brand za kojega ne znam postoji li jos...Ruksak je prosao sa mnom mnoga putovanja i avanture i jos je tu, kao nov i uvijek originalan!


Nadam se da vam se svidio ovaj nacin prezentacije outfita!
Nastojati cu i dalje dijeliti sa vama moja omiljena mjesta kroz zanimljive outfit postove!

  11. Jooj zaljubila sam se u hlače, baš mi je drago da si ih ponovno otkrila u ormaru i dala im još jednu šansu, najbolji su takvi komadi s pričom :) Marte i sama obožavam i nosim stalno još od osnovne škole, a zadnjih godina ih uvijek nosim ovako uz debele čarape jer im inače totalno unište gležnjeve (ne znam kako prije to nisam primjećivala ili mi nije smetalo hah) i daaaa, u potpunosti se slažem s tobom po pitanju Rijeke, prometa i šetanja - totalni je kaos i ja isto koristim svaku priliku da idem okolo pješke :)
    Inače, još nekidan sam te krenula pratiti na GFC-u nakon što si mi komentirala na blogu, a sad te idem i pronaći na Instagramu :) Pusa!

  27. Poradi Zagreba koji je moj rodni grad, Rijeka je definitivno moj najdraži hrvatski grad. Ima divnu atmosferu i jednostavno mi je lijep- spoj kontinenta i mora .... jedino bi se trebala naviknuti na promet (Riječani su ludi vozači) :)
    Kombinacija je odlična, karirano je veliki hit a tebi odlično stoji. I sama volim te bezvremenske komade koje imaš godinama i uvijek izgledaju odlično! :) Jako lijepa!

  59. It's impressing on how many places you already lived, but I understand although you live now in Milan that you still like it a lot to come back to your hometown. I think our roots in general are deep and thick ... Love not only your outfit with the fantastic plaid pants and the uber cool Dr. Martens but also the location! Thanks for sharing these pictures and happy weekend!
