true colours (outfit post) / prave boje (odjevna objava)

This beautiful mural is located in hospital Bijeli Brijeg in Mostar and it is a lovely sight to behold. I couldn't help noticing it  while waiting for my husband to come back from his head scan. After the scan, the two of us went for a stroll and took a lot of  photographs. If anyone wants to see photographs of lovely Mostar city, you have come to the right place today. My outfit is quite colourful, but I guess that won't be a surprise to anyone. I'm wearing one of my May's DIY projects...can you spot what it is? 

Ovaj prekrasni mural je smješten u bolnici Bijeli Brijeg u Mostaru i stvarno ga je lijepo vidjeti. Nisam ga mogla ne primijetiti dok sam čekala muža da se vrati s snimanja glave. Nakon snimanja, nas dvoje smo išli prošetati, a uslikali smo i puno fotografija pa tko želi vidjeti fotografije lijepog Mostara došao je na pravo mjesto. Moja odjevna kombinacija je poprilično šarena, ali mislim da to nikog neće iznenaditi. Nosim nešto što sama sama napravila ovog svibnja, možete li pogoditi o čemu se radi?

 the hospital's cafeteria has a funny name, it's called infusion.  People in Mostar are quite known for their sense of humour. 

 The verses you can see are written in an old glagolitic script and they are actually lyrics from a poem of one of my favourite Croatian poets.

  5. love these pics!!

  6. That painting on the wall looks really splendid, I do love it. I was closely examining each detail of it, it's also quite remarkable that your favourite poem is written there:)
    I do like the way you look, but I have no idea which detail of the outfit is handmade. Probably, the bag, but I have already seen it here at your blog before. It's intriguing;) I also like that weightless,colorful neck-piece, what can be more feminine and chic!

  7. Nice pics Ivana, and doesn't that jacket work well with that skirt and the red top. Very nice...!

  8. amazing place

  9. The mural is really beautiful, and your outfit too, love the bag!

    Have a good start of the week!

  17. cool pics! you look great!

  18. really cool and looks like the end of 80-s aprox 1986

  19. Fabulous outfit, I love your skirt and your blazer is very chic. How are you pretty Ivana ? Kisses :)

  20. I love it when they make hospitals into artful places - I've been to a couple of Children's hospitals here, and they are nothing like what I experienced in my childhood - they are bright, beautiful inspired art around, fun playrooms for kids... They are places to get better. This mural is truly gorgeous!

    Love your colorful self, the skirt is so well fitted, the colors are bright and cheerful, and the scarf is fantastic! xxx

  21. what a different look! love the scarf. thanks for your lovely comment on my blog! xx. gigi.

  22. You look tres chic, in your colourful and stylish outfit, Ivana! I agree with Natalia and think it is so important for hospitals to be cheerful and uplifting though they so often aren't. Children's hospitals here do it best. The art in your hospital is whimsical, which is great. We need the whimsical at all ages, I think. xoxo

  23. More hospitals should have lovely artwork like this as places like that need to be enlivened so people can be distracted by the circumstances for which they're there for in the first place. I hope everything went well with your husband's head scan and that he is ok. I had to get a head scan once and the sedatives I took made me so loopy that I forgot the whole experience which I guess wasn't really a bad thing.

  27. Volim žutu oa sam oduševljena kako se provlači kroz čitav outfit! Sve mi je baš jako jako lijepo kao i mural... jedino mi baš nije "draga" lokacija na kojoj se nalazi!

  31. Beautiful mural! I always take some time to look closer at any murals I come upon. There is special charm in this form of art. Cool outfit, especially I like the scarf. And hey, you have really pretty slim legs, you should show off them more often :) Thank you for the information you gave me about that tattoo tradition and the link, you know such stuff interests me very much. I will try to do more research.

  32. I hope your husband is ok - the mural at the hospital is beautiful, it's so lovely to see a magnificent piece of art there, here our children's hospital is colourfully adorned but not so much the adult hospitals, shame really - you are exquisite! I love your outfit, the colours and textures so pretty, like you! x x x

  33. Pa ti čak i u bolnici pronađeš neki detalj vredan pažnje :) Nadam se da je sve ok sa tvojim mužem. Što se kombinacije tiče, mislim da mi je tvoja omiljena u poslednje vreme, jeste šarena ali je nekako sve baš gde treba da bude :)

  34. Great outfit, this skirt is very beautiful!

  35. Hello, I love your bright outfits, it's exactly how I imagine southern style - chic, happy, colorful and unique! Happy Monday!

  36. Fantastic! Love the place and your skirt!
    I look forward to your DIYed pieces!

  45. Nice post!

  46. That is quite the mural to have in a hospital but it is nice to see some color! I sure hope your husband is doing well. Your outfit is beautiful, love that yellow skirt!


  47. I hope there's nothing serious with your husband, dear. Anyway, yellow is definitely a happy color. So brilliant and simply cheerful!

  48. If I see it on LOOKBOOK and like/Hype it, I obviously must like it elsewhere. So I dropped on this blog to offer my love of this outfit. You're dressed very nicely here and look great. I like the coat and the pumps. The scarf and skirt are also very nice.

  49. cool city pics my dear. unfortunately i cannot spotted your diy - sorry.

    but your outfit is really good. i like your tights a lot. this colour is amazing.

    is this anthracite?

    1. The colour of this tights is dark grey, so yes it is coal colour or anthracite.

      My DIY was hard to spot so don't worry about not seeing was a small hair decoration in the shape of a heart.

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
