DIY (outfit post) / napravi sam (odjevna kombinacija)

about the outfit:
The outfit I'm presenting is all about DIY. This dark blue mini I accidentally burned while ironing so I had decided to cover the stain with lace. It worked like charm, the only problem is that I'm afraid the mini is a bit short (what do you think?)so I don't wear it often.

 The necklace was created in a moment of inspiration when I've decided that to best way to use a wire that fell out of my bra (don't you hate when that happens?) is by doing something creative with it. This tee with stripes I bought in Acireale about 7 years ago and I remember I paid it one euro in a china shop. I have a good memory or....perhaps I just love stories (as I explained in the last post, I love when there is a story that comes with an item of clothing.
                                                              about the location:
The church you see behind me is located in Široki Brijeg, a town in Herzegovina. It may just be the most beautiful church in this region. I love architecture and I've seen a lot of churches but this one for some reason, seems special. In Croatia, the one that stands out for me is the cathedral in Šibenik and in Italy I was most impressed by the cathedral in Orviento.  I love things made from stone, small or big.

O odjeći:
Dragi moji, ova odjevna kombinacija... modra suknjica (minica ili kako god) je bila progorena pri peglanju jer je netko često jako smotan, ali sam ispravila nepažnju tako što sam na nju prišila bijelu čipku što je zapravo jako lijepo ispalo. Samo mi se čini da mi je malo prekratka (što vi mislite?) pa je rijetko nosim.

Ogrlicu sam napravila u trenutku inspiracije koristeći za taj privjesak žicu koja je ispala iz grudnjaka (zar nije grozno kad se to dogodi?) tako da mi je baš zanimljivo ispala. Majicu na pruge kupila sam u Acirealu davnih dana, a sjećam se da sam je platila jedan euro...Ili imam dobro sjećanje ili kako sam već napisala, volim priče koje idu uz odjeću.

O lokaciji:
Ova crkva mi je zapravo najljepša u Herzegovini. Vidjela sam puno crkava, volim arhitekturu, ali iz nekog razloga ova mi je posebna...teško je znati točno zašto. U Hrvatskoj mi je najljepša katedrala u Šibeniku, a u Italiji mi se najviše svidjela katedrala u Orvientu. Jako me privlači kamen i svi radovi od kamena.


  1. I love churches made of stones! This is wonderful.. so high and magnificent! <3 <3 I love green too.. and your outfit is super :) As you! Lots of kisses and have a good night

  2. That looks really nice. Have a great day.

  3. That church is so interesting and you look so pretty :)

  4. Ciao IVana! Sei molto creativa, mi piace come hai aggiustato la gonna e la collana è molto carina! Un bacio!

  5. Dearest Ivana, I´m always impressed about your great ideas! To be honest I have never thought about to do a DIY with the wire which felt out of the bra - and the necklace looks indeed good. And regarding the misfurtune during ironing, this happens to me fortunately very seldom because I hate it to iron and I try to avoid it as much I can ;) It was a great idea, too, to cover it with lace!

    And the inside of the church is absoultely my taste - I like such pure churches. The churches here in our region are mostly a bit overloaded with stucco and gold ...

    Wish you a wonderful rest of the evening <3

  6. Čipka se super stopila sa suknjom,i odlično ti pristaje,nije kratka!

  7. amazing church! And you look so pretty ;)

  8. Odlicna ideja... i cipka i zica id grudnjaka... meni tako nesto nikada ne bi palo napamet :-) Po meni, suknja ti nije prekratka.... imas lijepe noge i jako ti lijepo stoji :-) Crkva je jako lijepa... i ja sam pobornica ovakvog tipa arhitekture i nisu mi lijepe ove neke nove koje izgledaju kao svemirski brodovi...

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…
