another DIY necklace / još jedna ogrlica koju sam napravila

I'm back in Mostar and happy to say that the weather improved significantly. I did end up with a cold as a result of the sudden weather changes, but I'm not complaining because it was my own choice to spend entire days outdoors facing the freezing wind. Besides, I quite enjoyed it (photographs of windy Split coming up soon).  Now, about the outfit. I wore this yesterday when we stopped for coffee after grocery shopping and right before my favourite part of day- preparing lunch. Ok, I admit maybe eating lunch is my favourite but I do like cooking as well. This vintage skirt I often wear with this jacket, it seems the right thing to do, being high waist and all that. The bag is a treasured gift and the boots are from Peko. Last but not the least, a necklace that I made myself last Spring. To create this necklace, I handsewn these beads (plastic imitation crystals) onto recycled faux leather.

Vratila sam se u Mostar i drago mi je reći da se vrijeme znatno popravilo. Istina, malo sam se prehladila zbog svih ovih vremenskih promjena, ali neću se žaliti jer je bio moj vlastiti izbor biti po cijele dane vani na burnje vrijeme i baš sam uživala u tome (uskoro stižu slike splitske bure). Sada, što se tiče odjevne kombinacije. Nosila sam ovo jučer kada smo pili kavu nakon odlaska u spizu (tj. u dućan) i neposredno prije mog najdražeg dijela dana- kuhanja ručka. Dobro, možda mi je jedenje ručka ipak najdraže, ali volim i kuhati. Što se tiče kombinacije, ima tu posebnih komada. Ovu suknju  obično nosim s ovom jaknom, čini mi se kao ispravan izbor, jer tako dolazi do izražaja visoki struk. Torba je dragi poklon, a čizme su iz Peka. Ogrlicu sam sama napravila prošlog proljeća tako što sam ušila ove plastične imitacije  kristala na recikliranu umjetnu kožu.

  33. these are fantastic photos, but my fav is the last one. gosh, you look so beautiful in this outfit. i think i see your boots from one of your last posts here - this skirt is the right combo to this shoes. i like this a lot!!! colourwise is this a perfect match.

    but i think you "missed" a belt - i think that would look great on this skirt/shirt combo. And yes, i see another great diy necklace on you - you had really a talent for this!!!

    Bye.

    1. you mean a belt on the skirt or over the jacket. I think that a belt worn on a skirt would look nice but not if I would wear it over this jacket.

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.

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

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. 



AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
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.

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
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 …
