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!

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.

Inspired by..... Tijana/ Nadahnuta....Tijanom

Hi everyone! It's time for another Inspired The medium is acrylic on cardboard. This time I illustrated Tijana from fashion abejita. Painting lace is always a challenge and I'm aware that I have a long way to go when it comes to illustrating fabrics, but all things considering, I think I did pretty well. In fact, I'm quite happy with how this painting turned out. This outfit is a summery one, but it is suitable for Spring as well. Besides, green is in this Spring. 
Zdravo svima! Vrijeme je za još jednu Nadahnuta s...objavu. Medij su akrilne boje na kartonu. Ovaj put sam naslikala Tijanu sa bloga fashion abejita. Slikati čipku je izazov i znam da imam još puno toga za naučiti kada je ilustriranje tekstila u pitanju, no  kada se sve uzme u obzir, mislim da ova slika nije loše ispala. Zapravo,  poprilično sam zadovoljna s time kako je slika ispala. Ova kombinacija je ljetna, ali zapravo se može nositi i na proljeće. Osim toga, zelena je sada u trendu.

This is what…


Hello everyone! How are you? I'm in bed with fever, I think I caught a virus or something. Anyhow, today I have a few October outfit proposals to share with you. I sure love getting dressed in autumn. With this fall styling ideas, I'm joining Modish Matrons (fifty shades of fall) Linkup. I'm also linking this post with Mica's Weekly Wear Linkup. 
1. ORANGE DRESS STYLED WITH A LONG GREEN VEST AND A VINTAGE BLAZER What says October better than an orange dress? Orange is the colour of warmth. It is also the colour of Halloween and pumpkins. So, I'd say it is a pretty good choice for this time of year. I love wearing this  Bellissima dress (see how I styled it here, here and here). I paired this orange dress with a long green vest (besides m last post, I also wore it here , here and here) and a curd vintage blazer (see how I styled it here). I finished the outfit with black square heel boots (previously worn here and here) and a bag (previously worn here and here). Ove…


Time for another reading update. Today I'll review three books: a novel, a collection of stories and a play. The novel Wild Life by Molly Gloss was my first work by this author. October Country is a work by author I was already familiar with. In fact some of you might remember that I have a great fondness for Ray Bradbury. His Fahrenheit 451 is one of my favourite dystopian novels of all times.  So, I was happy I was able to pick up a collection of his short stories. Finally, I read a play by Christopher Marlowe. This is another author I was already familiar with (I did study English language and literature). I enjoyed Marlowe's version of Doctor Faustus myth, so I decided to see what his others works are like. So far, I read one and a half play but I plan to finish them all by the end of the month. I was also rereading Shakespeare a lot lately because that is always a good idea. I do upload most of my reading on goodreads so you can check my reading progress there as well.
