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?

  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 ;)

      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

  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)

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.

TIPS FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE EASTER CELEBRATION

Happy Easter Monday everyone! Today I'll talk about how to have more sustainable Easter week celebration. I'll share some of my tips as well as my 'green' Easter day traditions. Before I get into sharing those tips, let me just say that traditional Easter customs are more likely to be environmentally conscious. So, tradition is a great way to look for inspiration. Ask your elders, relatives and friends about their Easter traditions, they can give you useful tips, advice and inspiration. Naturally, internet is also a great resource for environmentally friendly Easter. There are a lot of creative people out there that are constantly coming up with sustainable decor and recipes, so why not tap into that? Feel free to share your Easter traditions as well. A great thing about collecting green tips is that most of them can be applied to any festivity!
My Easter day 'green' ideas include: using natural egg dyes, using recycled Easter decor, not being wasteful with fo…

IS MOSTAR A GOOD EASTER DAY DESTINATION? PLUS A SPRING OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Luckily for me, Mostar is an excellent Easter day destination. You see, I had travel plans for this Easter weekend, but I caught a bad cold so I decided to stay in the city I'm currently based in. That's actually not a bad thing because (if you ask me) Mostar makes for a great Easter day destination. Naturally, I've would have loved to visit my family, but since that wasn't possible, I'm happy to be spending Easter in Mostar. I've already cleaned and decorated my home for Easter so I'm all set. I've also prepared an outfit proposal but more about that later on. First I'll talk a bit about Mostar. Why is Mostar such a great spring destination? I can think of a number of reasons, but from top of my head I would say wonderful climate, beautiful landmarks and interesting history. Mostar is gorgeous in spring time. With its seven rivers and a number of lovely parks, Mostar can feel like a city oasis.

CROATIAN FASHION WEEK: MATEYANEIRA FASHION ILLUSTRATION IN WATERCOLOUR

I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…
