DIY of the day: fascinator / ukras za kosu

Step no. 1: glue the coffee beans to faux leather and decorate with nailpolish and/or acrylic paints/ prvi korak: zaljepiti zrna kave za eko kožu i ukrasiti lakom za nokte i/ili akrilnim bojama



For the next and the last step you will need  a bit of thread and a needle/ za zadnji i posljednji korak trebati će vam igla i konac

step no.2: sew the fascinator to the hairpin/ drugi korak: ušijte ukras za špangicu

eccola!

I won't get into why I usually have extra coffee beans around the house, ok? Indeed, to explain how I drink my coffee would take too much time. The point is that I usually do have some coffee beans (the ones that are not deemed good enough to end up in my coffee cup) and they inspired me to make a head fascinator....a little bit of glue, a piece of faux leather, one hairpin...and  voilà!

Neću ulaziti u to zašto obično imam viška zrna kave kući, previše bi si vremena oduzela da objašnjavam neke svoje navike, nego ću samo reći što mi je palo na pamet da napravim s onima koja mi se nisu dovoljno svidjela da bi završila u mojoj kavi. Napravila sam ukras za kosu! Malo ljepila, komad eko kože, jedna špangica za kosu...i eto ga ili kako moji otočani kažu: eccola:)

  3. It looks quite interesting, Ivana! You are very imaginative, I believe you've got a million ideas in your head. I have a lot of extra coffee beans in my house too, but I have never doing anything from them, except making a cup of fresh coffee:)

  16. Kako je ovo fenomenalno! :) Nikad nisam ni pomislila da bi zrna kafe mogla da imaju drugu funkciju. Nosila bih to bez razmišljanja mada uz rizik da zrna ne ostanu na mestu jer kafi ne mogu da odolim :)

HOW TO STYLE A YELLOW BLAZER WITH DAD SNEAKERS FOR SPRING?

My outfit proposal of the day is a casual one. I feel that not too long ago a blazer worn with jeans wouldn't have been exactly my first choice, especially paired with dad's sneakers, but times are changing. One of fun things about trends is that they can make you step outside of your comfort zone a little bit. Obviously, we shouldn't follow trends just for the sake of following them, but often they can give us inspiration. I certainly like to look at them that way, as a source of inspiration. Fashion moves in circles, so playing up with trends doesn't really have to cost anything, especially if you have already mastered shopping your own closet. The athletic sneaker trend is certainly a tempting one. It's hard to say not to the comfy sneakers trend, especially when you enjoy hiking and strolling around as much as I do. Most people do have an ugly sneaker in their closet. It is possibly the most comfortable option out there, so why not try styling it for every day…

HOW TO WEAR DRESSES WITH SNEAKERS FOR SPRING & SUMMER?

If there is one outfit that screams spring and summer for me, it's dresses worn with sneakers. Naturally, dresses and sandals is another lovely pairing, but sneakers also have many benefits. From being orthopedic (not all of them but still) to being appropriate for all kind of terrains, there is no denying that sneakers are practical. You can take them anywhere, from a rock beach to a sandy one. You can pair them fun socks or tights for those days it's still not warm enough. Long story short, they do make for a lovely choice in this season. What are your thoughts? Do you like to wear sneakers in spring and summer? My last post was about styling dad sneakers with jeans and a blazer, and today I'll show you some of my favourite sneaker and dress combinations. If you ask me, the answer to the question can I wear dresses with sneakers is - yes, you absolutely can.

HOW TO WEAR A DENIM SKIRT (WITH A BLAZER) FOR SPRING?

I often write about shopping one's closet on this little blog of mine. Not only is shopping our closet  a sustainable thing to do, it also helps us to get to know our closet. How can you really know your wardrobe options if you don't style and wear your clothes? The potential of every clothing item increases with a bit of tender love and care (TLC). One of the things I love about shopping one's closet is the opportunity to create stories with our clothing items. When we care about a clothing item, we're more likely to take good care of it and that can help make us more environmentally conscious. Most people could really benefit from learning how to take better care of their clothes, that's for sure. We live in an era of 'wear it then throw it'. This consumerist approach is what makes fashion industry such a horrible polluter. We can all help to change that with our every day choices. Good news is that we can all help it in a variety of ways. From buying vi…
