  1. baš bi ga voljela posjetiti!!!! U Splitu su mi jednom studenti pokazali kroz teleskop Saturn, baš je bilo zanimljivo, ali to je bio neki organizirani događaj, posjetiti pravi planetarium bi je velika želja.

    Crni kaput je vječna klasika, nešto što nam svima treba u ormaru…lijepo izgledaš i hvala na posjeti<3


  2. Dear Sily, looks like you had an enjoying day above the clouds! I can imagine it was really interesting to visit this new planetarium and also the cafe there looks amazing. And thanks to you I learned even a new word: I didn’t know before I read your text that in English the German word “hinterland” is used in the same context 🙂 You look good in your look – which is at the same time elegant and casual ❤ Happy weekend!
