Login box (embedded in external portals outside IdP)

Client is forcing this solution because don't want to change current user
experience. In current site there are two places which user could use to
log in (top bar/separate page) and after we create our portal - user
experience should not change he should still log in using the same
(currently existing) components.
if there will be only single place to log in (in current solution) -
separate page, then we'll be able to prepare page which will look similar
at IdP, but the problem is with top bar login which is on all public pages
- we are not able to "simulate" this on IdP side.
