headpiece (DIY)+ today's outfit post+ photography--današnje ruho , fotografija i ukras za kosu

I feel intoxicated with beauty. I really do. Let me elaborate. Today the day is so sunny and warm, it feels like spring.  This morning I went hiking with my husband. We took a bunch of photos, I of scenery, he of me. Mind you, this is a hiking outfit, so comfort was important. When you're spending a significant amount of time out in the open, weather conditions are something to be taken into account. It might have been pretty warm, but it is still winter. Once again layering saved the day.

1. Without a coat
It was so warm I almost didn't need a coat. Almost. I did wear one later on( as you will see if you look at all the photos) when I was at the side of the hill where it is windy. But here at this spot it wasn't necessary at all. 

2. Head piece/ Ukras u kosi
I'm not sure what one would call this installation in my hair. (Perhaps a head piece?) I designed and made it in my first year at the University in Split and I still like it. It is made out of iron wire and fimo mass. Its pastel colours were the  inspiration for my outfit this morning.

                                                                        3. Time to wear that coat
On the windy side of the hill, I wore a long black coat. Belted. The way I like it. On some photos I'm even wearing a beanie (curtosy of my significant other).

4. Scenery
....and now some photographs I took.

Do you know understand what I meant when I said that I felt intoxicated with beauty?

Feel free to comment!

beanie: no name (as far as I know)
coat : no name (as far as I know)
knitted vest:  hand made by someone in the family
purple thingie (I'm not sure how to call it- perhaps a long sweater?): no name
stockings: Jadran ( Croatian brand)
over the knee socks: New Yorker
heat warmers: came together with nosens shoes ( Spanish brand)
shoes: Dr. Martens

Location:  Bosnia and Herzegovina/  Planinica, a hill that has a great panorama of Mostar.
Time: This morning

A sada ukratko: Jutros sam bila na Planinici, brdu pored Mostara s kojeg se pruža zaista prekrasan pogled na grad, ali i na okolne planine. Divno mjesto. Dan je bio prekrasan i toliko sam uživala u toj šetnji da se osjećam opijena ljepotom. Mislim da nije pretjerivanje ako to kažem. Priroda je prekrasna u Hercegovini, kao i na mnogim mjestima na svijetu. Moje današnje ruho  je prilagođeno potrebama boravka na otvorenom. (ako se pitate koji ti je vrag s tim ruhom zašto jednostavno ne kažem outfit to je utjecaj Nives Opančić. Ne znate tko je ona? Hrvatska jezikoslovka, mislim da sam pročitala sve njene knjige. Sviđa mi se njena ljubav prema riječima. ) Hvala na komentiranju!

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
