DIY+ sunday outfit post: find out how to refresh your old jeans !

How's the New Year been treating you? As the title suggests, today I'll be showing you two things.


No.1 DIY

I don't remember when I started working with textil colours, a few years ago I guess. I've always been big on DIY but long story short, this is something pretty easy. All you need is a bit of colour and a brush. If you can't paint to save your life you can always cut the shapes you want or just copy some image on your clothes.   I love to paint so this is something like  a dream come true for me. Combining painting and fashion, I mean what could be better? I made sure I took a lot of photos so you can see all the stages.








                                                             No. 2 The outfit
As you can see, I'm really keen on this two sized too big jeans trend. Some call it boyfriend jeans, but since my significant other is really skinny, I'm not sure that his jeans would fit me. I really like this jeans, that is why I decided to refresh them a bit with the spots. Actually, these jeans used to be black ( I mean literally like 10 years ago) and I have to say - that is some good quality jeans. The brand is  Amadeus jeans (Croatian). I'm not big on jeans to be frank, there is no way I could wear them two days in a row without feeling boring but how would our world look without denim? Hard to imagine it, right? So, my suggestion is: make sure the jeans you have are worth the money you spend on them. If anything should last it is the denim. Moving on...about the outfit...I like layering so this was how I've did it. The jacket is second hand and I love it. ( If you shop at second hand, try classical pieces like this one, because clothes used to be more expensive back in the day but also in the most cases the quality was much better than today) If anyone is wondering, the location is Međugorje, Bosnia and Herzegovina...as you can see the past Sunday was uncanny warm for this time of year and what a beautiful day it had been!






Irish pub Međugorje--- Notice the painting behind me, it's a bit rustic ...very well done.





Thank you for taking the time to read this:) xoxo

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

HOW TO STYLE A METALLIC DRESS FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…

EARLY SPRING OUTFIT FOR A DAY SPENT STROLLING THE MOSTAR CITY

Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges. 
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays  as intensely bec…

HOW TO STYLE A BATH ROBE COAT FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
