tourist (outfit post)/ turist (odjevna objava)























necklace: DIY/moj ručni rad, sneakers/ tenisice (patike): umbro, the rest/ostalo: no brand


Don't feel bad if you can't travel at the moment. Many people can't afford a vacation and there are always those with small kids for whom travelling is difficult. Just because you're not able to take a vacation doesn't mean you can't have some fun. Being a tourist in your own town can be a lot of fun. 

Forget about make up (and hairdos), wear sneakers and jeans and go for that long walk that will show you another side of your town. Find a neighbourhood you haven't been in, discover something new, let yourself be taken over by your inner traveler (we all have an inner traveler in us- that's one of the things I strongly believe in). No matter the size of the town you happen to live in, the chances are there are places in it you haven't seen before. 

Imagine that you're a tourist. What would you do? You would walk, you would explore ,you would let yourself and your imagination be occupied by some particular place. You can do all that in the place you live in. Give yourself a benefit of a long walk. Human body was designed for motion and our eyes need their rest from the screens and the virtual world. If it is cold outside, dress warmly (like I had for this occasion, I only regret not taking a cap because it was really windy that day)...and don't forget to dress comfortably either. 

All these photos were taken in Mostar, about two week ago. I'm wearing a statement necklace that has been featured in the previous post and that you've asked to see in an outfit post. So, here it is:). Have a great start of the week everyone!

Nemojte biti loše volje samo zato što ne može otputovati negdje. Puno ljudi si ne može priuštiti putovanje (ljetovanje/zimovanje), a tu su uvijek i roditelji čija su djeca još mala i kojima je nezgodno putovati sa njima. Samo zato što ne možete otići na odmor, ne mora značiti da vam mora biti dosadno. Postati turist u vlastitom gradu može biti jako zabavno iskustvo. Zaboravite na šminku ili frizuru i otiđite u dugu šetnju koja će vam pokazati novu stranu vašeg grada. Pronađite kvart u kojem niste bili, otkrijte nešto novo, dozvoliti sebi da vas preuzme vaš untrašnji putnik (čvrsto vjerujem da svi imamo unutrašnjeg putnika). Bez obzira na veličinu grada u kojem živi, velika je vjerojatnost da ima neko mjesto na kojem još niste bili.  

Zamislite da ste turist. Što biste napravili? Šetali bi, istraživali bi, pustili bi da vas i vašu maštu obuzme neko određeno mjesto. Sve to možete napraviti u mjestu u kojem živite. Priuštite sebi dugu šetnju. Ljudsko je tijelo stvoreno za kretanje i našim očima je potrebam odmor od ekrana. Ukoliko je vani hladno, obucite se toplo (kao što sam ja za ovu šetnju i bilo mi je žao što nisam uzela i kapu jer je bilo jako vjetrovito)...i nemojte se zaboraviti obući i obuti i udobno.

Sve su ove fotografije uslikane u Mostaru predprošlog tjedna. Nosim veliku ogrlicu koju sam sama izradila iz prošle objave, a koju ste željeli vidjeti nošenu, pa je evo:). Uživajte svi u sjajnom početku tjedna!

    slažem se istraživanje grada u kojem živimo. uvijek ima nešto što još ne znamo.

  2. Ogrlica deluje mnogo lepo, cak mi je lepsa nego u prosloj objavi.
    Ja se potpuno slazem sa tobom, ja obozavam da sama lutam po meni poznatim mestima i bukvalo u glavi sebi kazem da sam turista i stranac u narednih par sati i onda sve posmatram drugim ocima :) Neverovatno je sta sve tada zapazim, koje sve delove grada otkrijem i koliko su mi oni kojima svaki dan prolazim lepsi i drugaciji. Slike su predivne, nisam nikad bila u Mostaru i bas imam zelju da ga posetim. :)

  7. I really agree with you here, Ivana. We have no chance for travelling or taking a holiday for a long time, not as easy with a baby but we love exploring the place where we live. It was gorgeous day during the weekend, warm and so sunny and I managed to wear a sleeveless top for the first time in many months so yay to that!
    Hope you had a great Valentine's Day, Ivana! xx

  9. I agree with you Ivana, it is not necessary to go far away from your home to see and accept something new. Sometimes we must be resourceful and adjust to different situation! Nice photos and wonferful statement necklace!

  16. Ogrlica se odlično uklopila uz ovaj džemperić, baš podiže čitavu kombinaciju :)
    I slažem se s ovim što si rekla, ja često tako lutam po gradu i otkrivam nove stvari i mjesta, ima nečeg posebnog u tome :)

  19. Totally agree with you, my fav words are: 'Human body was designed for motion and our eyes need their rest from the screens and the virtual world.'
    Only for walking I can do, but for photos I'm a little bit scared about peoples few accept to appear in the frame or their house. We need to be more then two for this activity.
    That river I thought is a frozen water, nice photos. xoxo

  20. Baš tako. Znaš da se potpuno slažem. Takođe ono što imamo svakodnevno, kao grad u kojem živimo, uzimamo zdravo za gotovo ili se vodimo time da će uvek biti tu i da ima vremena, a to vreme nikad ne dođe. Ja obožavam da budem turista uvek i svuda i za mene je to najvažnija sporedna stvar na svetu :)
    Divno izgledaš, jakna je tako lepa i ušuškana a opet damska. Ogrlica je kao šlag na torti ;)

  21. Aww this makes me feel better dear! I actually felt a little bad when I think about the fact that I can't travel somewhere else this summer (April,May) in our country. My new job requires me for a long stay and I just can't make my time any flexible for it. Love the idea here, must visit the unexplored places in my city first :) And yes, that lovely statement necklace of your's looks so great!!

    love lots,
    Tin

  24. Baš si ovo lijepo napisala, svaka čast! :) Meni bude nevjerojatno koliko mjesta u Hr nisam posjetila a stalno kukam da bi negdje vani! Jedan period u životu sam bila zbog posla stalno na terenu i nema sela koja nisam posjetila u sjevernoj Hr i Zagorju... neke od najljepših uspomena i smiješnih anegdota su mi iz tog razdoblja! :)

  26. gosh, these pics are stunning. beautiful place with this river. but your clothings are also good looking. i like your coat and this (surely) warm poloneck. And i think your necklace is a "diy" from you, right?

    To be a tourist in your own city is so funny...;-) i am always a "tourist" if i take a walk in a park. i like this hours a lot - it´s so relaxing for me.

    To you feeling the same, if you walk alone on different places? Or you ever walk with your husband?

    1. yes, I always find walking relaxing. Sometimes I take a walk with my husband but sometimes I also go alone. Usually if I'm by myself, I don't go to the city but I prefer to go hiking on the hills near my house. I often go hiking there by myself....it makes me feel calmer and better.

    2. unfortunately i have no mountains near my hometown. i must drive with my car nearly 1 hour to be in higher mountain side. that´s why i go in parks - if i´m not going shopping...;-)

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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.
