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.

If you know me, you know that I'll grab every opportunity to don on a statement dress. Life is to short to wear boring dresses. Nothing is quite as dramatic as a statement red dress, am I right or what? I was planning on walking miles that night, so I paired my red dress with comfy shoes, a straw bag and a pink blazer (just in case if it gets windy). I'm a fan of wearing dramatic dresses with comfy shoes, it makes them stand out more- and it can make the outfit not only more comfortable but also fresh. I wore this red midi dress with ruffled sleeves for a date night in Chinese restaurant Asia in Split (HERE- one of my favourite places to grab Chinese food in the city). I had a lovely time dinning there with my significant other. I pretty much always order the same thing: home made noodles with veggies and dumplings. As always, the food was yummy. This restaurant is located in my old neighbourhood Split 3 (address: street Poljička cesta 39 ) and I definitely recommend paying it…


When we talk about travelling outfits, comfort is definitely something we need to consider. Everyone wants to be comfortable when travelling, right? As much as visiting a certain town or resort can be fun and relaxing, the process of getting there might be a little stressful. Comfort is definitely important. However, the thing is that everyone has a different definition of comfort. Some ladies might feel perfectly comfortable in a dress, while others might prefer the typical jeans and tee outfit formula. Sure, it makes sense to follow some rules. Opting for practical and utility wear might make your life easier when travelling. Similarly, wearing breathable, comfortable and natural fabrics in summer makes sense. However, what if you have a fabulous polyester vintage item you're dying to wear? You know, if that vintage polyester item makes you feel good, wearing it probably makes sense.
When it comes to summer travel style, being reasonable and practical is important. However, oft…

Ljubuški (Sights to See, Places to Visit / Znamenitosti za vidjeti, Mjesta za posjetiti)

What a lovely place this is!  Do you remember it? If you don't, don't worry because I'll leave you with two little reminders i.e. links to previous posts ( here and here).  Can you recognize it now? If you are a first time visitor, I don't mind repeating myself. This is Ljubuški, a small city in region of Herzegovina, country Bosnia and Herzegovina. These photographs were taken back in February but since the weather has been a bit on the chilly side lately, I don't feel weird about posting them now. I originally planned to post a book review to go along with this post, but I couldn't think of anything nice to say about the book in question, so I gave up. I reviewed it a long time ago on goodreads and all I can say after reading it again is that I feel the same way about it. The concept of this book is great but it is written so badly. End of story. How it managed to win an award for the best novel of the year is beyond me. Anyway, it hasn't been translated…
