What to wear in Summer? Sometimes simplicity is the beast answer. / Što nositi ljeti? Ponekad je jednostavnost najbolje rješenje.


Maxi skirt in the Summer? How predictable! Well, sometimes basic items can feel pretty darn good. Printed tshirt and a maxi suknja paired with sandals, it doesn't get more basic than that. Simple outfit that almost feels like a casual uniform. I wore this outfit when I went to hear a Cambridge choir perform in our local church in Mostar. They sang beautifully. Now, I'm in Split, suffering from insomnia and feling mighty tired. I'm trying to tell myself that the Summer has only started (afterall I only spent 3 hours on the beach in total ) but I know it is not so. It is not you Summer, it's me. 

Duga suknja ljeti? Kako predvidljivo! Ponekad jednostavne stvari mogu biti izvor sreće. Majica s printom i duga suknja nošene s sandalama, to su nekakve osnove osnova. Jednostavna kombinacija koja je gotovo kao ležerna uniforma. Nosila sam ovu kombinaciju kada sam išla slušati izvedbu zbora iz Cambridge u našoj lokalnoj crkvi u Mostaru. Divno su pjevali. Sada sam u Splitu, patim od nesanice i osjećam se grozno umorno. Pokušavam si reći da je ljeto tek počelo (provela sam sama tri sata u komadu na plaži dosada), ali znam da nije tako. Nije krivo ljeto, kriva sam ja.

DIY necklace, yellow bag, flare jeans, icream and Split / ručno rađena ogrlica, žuta torba, zvone, sladoled i Split ( Zenta)

Ice cream. What says Summer better? When it comes to ice cream of my choice, I've been a faithful customer of Ledo for years. Their ice creams are nothing short of divine and I have never had better ice creams anywhere! If you decide to vacation in Croatia, don't forget to try them out, they have many different options, even ice cream cakes and deserts. I won't advise you to buy their other frozen products for example frozen fish, because you will do better if you just go to the local fish market. Some of Ledo's frozen fish products are imported from the northern seas and hence doesn't taste authenically local (and the price is the same as for local better quality fish). Anyway, I think it is always better to buy a fresh product if we can. I won't talk much about the outfit, it is very simple. I'm wearing my DIY necklace again, this time I paired it with a simple olive jumper, flare jeans and yellow bag ( I know you must be wondering do I have any other bags:)).  I will just add that these photographs were taken in marina bay Zenta Split ( Croatia) and that is all for today. xoxo

Sladoled. Što bolje kaže ljeto? Kada se radi o sladoledu po mome izboru, već sam godinama vjerna Ledu. Njihovi sladoledi su mi savršeni i nisam nigdje nikad bolje probala ! Odlučite li se na odmor u lijepoj našoj, nemojte zaboraviti uživati u njima, postoji toliko lijepih opcija, pa čak i sladoled torte. Neću vam savjetovati njihove druge proizvode, npr smrznutu rubu jer vam je bolje kupiti ju je na mjesnoj tržnici. Ledo poneku ribu (npr. mislim da njihova škarpina nije uopće škarpina) uvozi iz hladnih sjevernih mora i zato joj je okus drukčiji i nije autentičan za naše podneblje, ali cijena je i dalje na razini jadranske ribe.  Svakako je uvijek bolje kupiti svježi proizvod kada se može. Neću puno pričati o odjevnoj kombinaciji jer je jako jednostavna. Ponovo nosim jednu od svojih kreacija, a ovu ogrlicu sam nosila s maslinastom majicom, zvonama i žutom torbom ( znam da se možda već pitate imam li koju drugu torbu;)). Samo ću još dodati da su ove slike uslikane u marini Zenta u Splitu i to je sve za danas. Ljubim vas!

Four DIY items in one outfit (necklace, belt, pom pom sandals)/ Četiri stvari koje sam sama izradila u jednoj odjevnoj kombinaciji ( ogrlica, remen i sandale s pomponima)


This outfit is all about DIY. I made both this faux leatther necklace and this belt with fringes myself. They were both made from an old faux leather coat. I also decorated the bag with decoupage flowers. Moreover, there is one more fun DIY project. You will see that I'm wearing two pair of shoes in this post (sneakers and heels...and isn't it interesting how the choice of footwear completely transforms an outfit?)... Now, about the heels. They were my wedding shoes, so this pair of sandals is very special to me. I decided to breathe new life into them by sewing pom poms on them. That goes to show how much I love pom poms. All the DIY tutorials I saw includes glueing, but I oppose glueing on prinicple ( ok, that's not really true, I may  just happen  to be too lazy to go out and buy glue) so I decided to sew pom poms onto my sandals. That proved a bit difficult, but I'm happy I choose the harder way because now I'm sure they will stay there. That would be all for today! Three DIY items and one outfit. In case, anyone is wondering, the location is Bunica recreational centre near Mostar ( Bosnia and Herzegovina). 

Ova odjevna kombinacija je složena po načelu 'izradi sam'. Sama sam izradila i ogrlici i remen s resama od eko kože. Oboje su napravljeni od staroga kaputa od eko kože, a torbicu sam isto sama ukrasila s decoupage cvjetovima. U ovoj kombinaciji ima još jedan "izradi sam" projekt. Vidjeti ćete da nosim dva para cipela u ovoj kombinaciji (tenisice i pete---i zar nije zanimljivo kako izbor obuće odmah mijenja svaku kombinaciju?) Sada, što se tiče sandala s petom, njih sam nosila na vjenčanju, tako da su mi prirasle srcu. Odlučila sam im udahnuti novi život tako što ću na njih ušiti pompone. To samo pokazuje koliko mi se sviđaju pomponići.  Svi tutorijali s pomopnima su uključivali lijepljenje, a pošto sam ja u principu protiv njega ( možda sam jednostavno previše lijena da idem u dućan), odlučila sam ih ušiti sama na sandale, što se pokazalo teškim. Zapravo mi je drago što sam se odlučila na ovaj teži način jer sam sada sigurna da će ostati na mjestu. To je sve za danas. Četiri stvari koje sam sama izradila u jednoj odjevnoj kombinaciji.  Ako vas slučajno zanima, lokacija je Binica rekreacijski centar u Mostaru ( Bosna i Hercegovina).
