DIY (espadrilles) + outfit post / Ukrašavanje espandrila i odjevna kombinacija has been a long day. I had to get up early to catch a ride to Split. During the day a number of odd things happened such as having to walk barefoot from the beach because my shoes fell apart (fortunately my home in Split is near the beach) and accidentally locking myself in the bathroom. 

Anyhow, this is what I wore the day before yesterday for a walk with my dog near my home in Mostar. I really like midi skirts, this one is vintage and the smurfs tee ( bought at kids department) I just think is cute...

 I hope you like my DIY, it's pretty simple and I think it had made these espadrilles a bit more interesting. Sure, they're not real espadrilles (the real ones are made in a specific way)...yet I like the ones that are inspired by this popular and once only peasant footwear.

Jučer bijaše čudan dan. Hodati po užarenom asfaltu jer su mi japanke pukle bilo je zanimljivo, iako i bolno srećom plaža mi nije daleko od stana...a onda čekati da me spase iz kupaonice u koju sam se greškom zaključala ( no barem sam konačno počupala obrve)...da, stvarno čudan dan.
Uglavnom, ovo je prekjučerašnja odjevna kombinacija. Volim suknje ispod koljena, ova mi se baš sviđa...kao i ova majica na štrumfetu. Malo sam ukrasila ove espandrile i sada su mi zanimljivije...Nisu zapravo prave espandrile koje se izrađuju baš od platna i špage, ali volim sve cipele koje su nadahnute ovom nekada isključivo seljačkom obućom....možda i naš opanak jednom postane ludo popularan:)


  1. Odlicna suknja, san za kombiniranje! Fora DIY! ;) I sama sam neki dan hodala bosa i opekla se ali vlastitom odlukom jer sam na moru konstantno bosa pa sam se preracunala oko topline asfalta ;)

    1. da, baš se zagrije...i ja ljeti volim hodati bosa nekad pomislim zašto na uopće trebaju cipele...ali valjda je vrući asfalt jedan od razloga.

  2. My dear Ivana, as I have told before, i adore your creativity and your sense of style.

  6. Bome ti je zanimljiv bio dan, morala sam se nasmijati na zaključavanje u zahod (ali ajde barem si kvalitetno iskoristila vrijeme u zatočeništvu) :)))

  12. Great way to design, how did you lock yourself? I locked myself in the bathroom as a child and was so upset that when I managed to unlock the door I ran out and smacked right into the patio glass door thinking it was open lol, I was fine though, xoxo.

    1. yes, it's an odd feeling...makes me feel for all those who are imprisoned for any amount of time, especially a long one.

  13. Adorable DIY, I love your idea :)

  14. Hello Ivana,

    i like posts about footwear a lot. You had a great idea to put on some dots on these shoes - they looks really nice.

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 

Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …
