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.

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.

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …


It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets. 


If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…


I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
