outfit post/ odjevna kombinacija (once a bookworm, always a book worm)

This outfit post is really special to me because it encorporates several items that I have made myself. The first one is a necklace that I have made recently using fabric, faux leather and feathers (all recycled materials i.e things I already had at home). The second item would be the bag that bears inscription 'Once a book worm, always a book worm.' The bag is recycled. I have painted the little books and written the proverb on it with textile paints (I'd written about it in detail often enough) Finally, there is a skirt to which I have attacked lace ( by sewing it) All in all, a very enviromentally friendly outfit. 

It might be said that this outfit is about two things: DIY and flowers. There are flowers both on the skirt and the blouse and that is not the only reason why I have matched them together. I don't usually wear skirts that are as short as this one so matching it with an oversized blouse only made sense. In this way I didn't feel like there was too much skin showing. The other things I need to mention are these white sandals made from wood and leather...they'r so divenly comfortable and my husband proved once more that he is the greatest expert when it comes to buying shoes. When he says something along the lines 'buy this pair, they are of good quality', one should most definitely listen to him. Tell me what do you think about this look? Do you enjoy DIY projects? Do you like to recycle things? Are you a book worm like myself?

* Ova mi odjevna kombinacija stvarno nešto predstavlja jer sam većinu stvari sama izradila, bilo u potpunosti, bilo djelomično. Ogrlicu sam napravila prije par dana koristeći tkaninu, eko kožu i perje (sve materijali koje sam imala kod kuće). Torbicu sam sama obojila i ispisala tekstilnim bojama i tako iskoristila/ prenamijenila ovaj stari ceker. Na suknju sam nadodala čipku ( većina nas ima kući takvih komada čipke, a jako je jednostavno ih samo prišiti na nešto)..sve u svemu jako ekološki, puno recikliranja ...sve se vrti oko tog uradi sam elementa i cvijeća... Cvijeće se nalazi i na bluzi i na suknji, a spojila sam iz zajedno i zato jer inače ne nosim tako kratke suknje, pa ova velika prozračna bluza osigurava da ne bude previše kože otkriveno. Moram spomenuti još i sandale, od kože i drveta...koje su strašno udobne i dokazuju da nitko ne zna odabrati cipele kao moj muž. Kad on kaže da je neki par cipela kvalitetan, onda je sigurno tako. Onda, kako vam se sviđa moju ruho? Uživate li i sami u uradi sam projektima? Volite li reciklirati stvari? Jeste li kao i ja knjiški crv?

  1. Ma quanto sei creativa??? Praticamente te lo sei fatta da sola questo look!
    Sei stata bravissima, e sei anche supercarina! :D

  2. Great post dear...lovely pics..:-)...Thx for sharing..:-) xx

  3. Meni se čini da bi ti i ni od čega napravila nešto :) Sve mi se mnogo sviđa, volela bih da sam makar malo kreativna po tom pitanju, mada se u suštini nikada i nisam okušala u tim stvarima. Što se knjiga tiče, ista priča ;)

    1. to mi i muž kaže...da ga ne fascinira toliko to što napravim već to što to napravim iz ničega:) i kako mi to padne na pamet.

      hvala ti!

  4. Lepo si skombinovala celi outfit: belo-belo i crveno-crveno. Ni za ogrlicu ni za suknju ne bih mogla pogoditi da su DIY, izgledaju kao da pripadaju trgovinama ;) Možda ćeš jednom da kreiraš odjela za koju firmu, nikad se ne zna :) xx Maja

  5. Super izgledaš, odlična mi je suknja i baš mi se lijepo uklopila u ovu kombinaciju :))

  6. Odlična! Ogrlica mi je jedan od najdražih do sada a suknja... stoji ti predivno! Češće si "priušti" ovakvu dužinu! Sviđa mi se spi+oj cvijeća i čipke! :) Jako lijepa i naklon na tolikoj kreativnosti... ja baš nsam od takvih, barem što se DIY tiče jer sam strahovito nespretna! :)

  7. Bello! :)

  16. Dear Ivana, you should wear more often short skirts as you look wonderful in them! How good to have a husband which is a shoe expert, I like your shoes, too. And yes, I'm a book worm! Before I started blogging I read at least 3 - 4 books a week, in my first blogger year, which was 2013, I think I read less books as never before in my life. But since the beginning of 2014 I read again at least one book a week. I'm not as skilled as you and I don't do often DIY and I'm also not such a good woman like who recycles a lot which always impresses me so much <3

    1. I also read about one book per week now and it used to be a lot more...However, I think that now in summer I will have more time to read so the number might increase. Have you ever thought that blogging is a bit like reading? Maybe that is why we don't read as much as we used to...In fact we're both reading a lot...but now both books and blogs (not just books anymore)

  17. Jako interesantan i na prvi pogled "nespojiv" outfit, ali si sve tako super iskombinirala da mi se bas jako dopada! :)

  18. Lovely details. Your skirt is beauiful :)

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.

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…

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 …

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 …
