Heart shaped necklace (outfit post)/ Ogrlica u obliku srca (odjevna kombinacija)

It's finally time for you to see how I styled this DIY heart necklace ( I know I promised it two weeks ago but I had some technical problems). You can find the tutorial about the making of this environmentally friendly necklace here. For those interested in that kind of information, the photographs for this post were taken in Mostar, about two weeks ago. The weather is this extremely warm, but fortunately Mostar has a lot of shade (where one can seek when the sun becomes too strong.)

One of advantages to blogging is the possibility of making interesting friends. My blog allowed me to make friends with this adorable duck family in Mostar. They will be featured in this post so you can get to meet them if you already haven't met them. They are so adorable that I will gladly forgive them the stealing of the spotlight;) If you look closely you can see them even in my close ups.

Vrijeme je da konačno vidite kako sam nosila ovu srcoliku ogrlicu koju sam sama napravila (znam da sam to davno obećala, ali postojali su tehnički problemi). Možete pročitati kako napraviti ovu ekološku ogrlicu ovdje. Fotografije za ovu objavu uslikane su otprilike prije dva tjedna u Mostaru (za one koje to zanima). Vrijeme je i dalje veoma toplo, ali srećom u Mostaru ima puno hlada u koji se može pobjeći kada sunce postane prejako.

Blog može poslužiti jako lijepo i za sklapanje prijateljstva, a u Mostaru mi je omogućio da se sprijateljim s ovim preslatkom pačjom obitelji. Biti će dio ove objave, tako da ih možete upoznati ako već niste. Tako su preslatki da ću im rado oprostiti što uvijek budu u centru pažnje.;) Pogledate li pažljivo, možete ih vidjeti čak i na onim mojim fotografijama izbliza.

  6. That necklace is a work of art. Love the simple black dress and the groovy sandals, too.
    What a beautiufl place, all those historical buildings. Our local ducks insist on waddling about the town centre instead of the park, it's very odd to see them outside shops. x

  15. Another amazing Look, dear Ivana! Your dress is very elegant and suits you perfect. And your DIY necklace ... love it! It is beautiful and the highlight of this georgous outfit.
    The pics of Mostar are magnificent. I have never been there. It must be beautiful, despite the awkward past.

    Have a wonderful Weekend!

  20. The minimalist style of this black maxi dress is the perfect "frame" for your heart shaped necklace and it really stands out. So cute that the ducks showed up for your photos :)

    You should totally DIY a version of that clutch. I bet it would be fab!

  24. It was brilliant to pair the necklace with a simple black dress, Ivana, it stands up a lot and definitely give a sexy edge to the whole look. I think this is the first time I see you with a long dress such as this and I must say you look so pretty! You have a great height and long dress just look lovely on you!

  38. Hi Ivana, Now I understand why you said you could not bring yourself to eat ducks. When you see them alive and kicking, they are just so cute. I'm pretty torn at times when I look at animals and yet love meat. As for your DIY necklace, I don't know if I'm interpreting correctly or it's just some loose threads from the picture. It looks like a mended broken heart with some bits of flaws here and there and that's what makes the heart so beautiful because a heart could never be perfect but it could be beautiful because of the many healed wounds on it. Ok maybe I'm being a little philosophical here. In your previous post, you look totally like your beautiful self without make up.

    RYC:
    Ivana, Thank you for your lovely words. Your comments always make me smile. I'm not surprised that you've heard of the MBS Infinity pool. It has a life on its own! I've to admit that the sunset photo has got some tweaking done. The original photo didn't look as good as what my eyes saw so I tried to edit till what I saw. I literally lol at the part when you talked about how your hubby takes your photos! Sounds like mine at times! I see so many beautiful outfit shots on your blog so I'm sure your hubz is good in his ways. You're good typing your comment on the phone! I could never leave a blog comment on the phone. Something would sure screw up after I typed an essay.

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…
