colours (outfit post) / boje (odjevna kombinacija)

Yesterday I watched a fascinating documentary about colours. Supposedly, lots of animals see more colours than we do...I do wonder what the world looks like for them...alas, I will never know. Perhaps in the future some mad scientist will invest cool glasses that allow us to see things we haven't seen before (in terms of colour) and the fashion world will never be the same....who knows what awaits us in the future?

...and speaking of colours I  love to watch birds. I'm always fascinating by how gorgeous they are, especially the colourful ones. Yesterday in the documentary I told you about they showed a bird that has feather pigmentation that comes off when soaked in water- luckily the natural water does her no harm ( the bird lives in rain forest), but if you dipped her feather in the pipe water, the colour would come off....Interesting how everything in nature is so perfectly balanced.

Once I read ( I think it was in Dylan Dog's comic books from all places) that bird watching is one of the most fascinating things you can do, but if you do it too much, you might go crazy. What animals do you love to watch? Cats are on my list too...if there is an animal that can be call stylish, it has to come from a feline family.

When in city, the most common bird to see is a pigeon. I appreciate them much more after I had watched a documentary called "pigeon genius" on the TV ...and besides pigeons are so romantic. I totally understand why the characters from Hakawati ( a novel by Rabih Alameddine you don't want to miss) are so crazy about them. Btw Hakawati  means a storyteller in you know any good hakawati?

This is what I wore the day before yesterday...This tee is a gift from my granny...isn't she the best? She was my favourite hakawati when I was a little girl. I adored stories about her childhood.

Jučer sam gledala neki zanimljivi dokumentarac o bojama na televiziji (hrt-u) i stvarno je zanimljivo kako puno životinja vidi više boja ( i na različite načine) nego mi...baš me zanima kako one to vide, ali nažalost neću nikada saznati...možda jednog dana neki znastvenik izmisli posebne naočale koje bi nam to omogućile i onda se modni svijet zauvijek promijeni... Uglavnom, bila je (u dokumenarcu) čak i neka ptica koja živi u prašumi, a kojoj se boja sa perja otapa ako ga stavite u vodu- ali ne u kišnicu, takva prirodna voda nije dovoljno lužnata da joj skine boje- zanimljivo kako je u prirodi sve savršeno usklađeno....a govoreći o bojama i pticama, volim oboje...promatranje ptica ( i drugih životinja) mi je jedna od najdražih zanimacija...

U gradu najčešće od ptica vidimo golubove, riđan ( da znam da se taj izraz najviše rabi za konja, ali mi je simpatičan) sa prve fotografije mi se baš dopao....Golubovi su tako romantične, a i jako pametne ptice ( što sam otkrila gledajući još jedan dobar dokumetarac Pigeon genious)....skroz razumijem one likove u Hakawatiju koji su bili zaljubljeni u njih...a tek ona slatka golubica, možda moj najdraži lik (aj neka netko pročita taj roman da imam sa kime pričati o njemu, molim vas;)

a sada, današnja kombinacija...majica je poklon od bake:) ona je moj najdraži hakawati:)

My outfit proposal of the day is a casual one. I feel that not too long ago a blazer worn with jeans wouldn't have been exactly my first choice, especially paired with dad's sneakers, but times are changing. One of fun things about trends is that they can make you step outside of your comfort zone a little bit. Obviously, we shouldn't follow trends just for the sake of following them, but often they can give us inspiration. I certainly like to look at them that way, as a source of inspiration. Fashion moves in circles, so playing up with trends doesn't really have to cost anything, especially if you have already mastered shopping your own closet. The athletic sneaker trend is certainly a tempting one. It's hard to say not to the comfy sneakers trend, especially when you enjoy hiking and strolling around as much as I do. Most people do have an ugly sneaker in their closet. It is possibly the most comfortable option out there, so why not try styling it for every day…


If there is one outfit that screams spring and summer for me, it's dresses worn with sneakers. Naturally, dresses and sandals is another lovely pairing, but sneakers also have many benefits. From being orthopedic (not all of them but still) to being appropriate for all kind of terrains, there is no denying that sneakers are practical. You can take them anywhere, from a rock beach to a sandy one. You can pair them fun socks or tights for those days it's still not warm enough. Long story short, they do make for a lovely choice in this season. What are your thoughts? Do you like to wear sneakers in spring and summer? My last post was about styling dad sneakers with jeans and a blazer, and today I'll show you some of my favourite sneaker and dress combinations. If you ask me, the answer to the question can I wear dresses with sneakers is - yes, you absolutely can.

 I find that while androgynous style has its benefits, generally…


I often write about shopping one's closet on this little blog of mine. Not only is shopping our closet  a sustainable thing to do, it also helps us to get to know our closet. How can you really know your wardrobe options if you don't style and wear your clothes? The potential of every clothing item increases with a bit of tender love and care (TLC). One of the things I love about shopping one's closet is the opportunity to create stories with our clothing items. When we care about a clothing item, we're more likely to take good care of it and that can help make us more environmentally conscious. Most people could really benefit from learning how to take better care of their clothes, that's for sure. We live in an era of 'wear it then throw it'. This consumerist approach is what makes fashion industry such a horrible polluter. We can all help to change that with our every day choices. Good news is that we can all help it in a variety of ways. From buying vi…
