My new creation (outfit post) / Moja nova kreacija (odjevna kombinacija)

Is it possible that it the last day of Summer today? It doesn't feel like it is, not just because I have a feeling that the high temperatures and the blazing sun have gotten mixed up with every single molecule I'm composed of, but because nothing will change dramatically tomorrow. That I won't be walking into a classroom tomorrow feels quite odd. I still remember that 'back to school' excitement. Great part of that feeling was also about being able to remiscent about Summer and to some level even brag about it to our fellow students. 

When you're young, every Summer seems unforgettable and unique. When you're a little older, you learn a little secret....Summer doesn't have to end. We can keep it in our heart. That feeling of freedom and uniqueness can be yours, if you dare to claim it. Try something new every day, that is the best way to keep that feeling of freedom in your heart. Take this necklace I made for example. I went for simplicity and sewn onto this faux leather base only a single stone. I added a colourful ribbon at left it at that. Such a simple DIY, but it was so much fun to do. Now, I have a necklace I really like. All because I wasn't afraid to try something new. Similarly, those dots I painted on this old hat is something I wasn't so sure about yet when it was done I was really happy with it. The moral of this story is, you'll never know if you don't try. There is no reason why only Summer should be reserved for trying out new things.

Je li moguće da je zadnji dan ljeta? Ne čini se da je tako, ne samo zato jer imam osjećaj da su visoke temperature i nemilosrdno sunce prodrli u svaku molekulu od koje sam sastavljena, nego zbog toga što se sutra neće ništa dramatično promijeniti i nekako mi je još teško vjerovati da sutra neću ušetati u razred. Još se sjećam tog uzbuđenja oko povratka u školu, koji se u velikoj mjeri sastojao od toga da smo mogli razmišljati o ljetu i pohvaliti se s njime (na neki način) drugim učenicima. 

Kada si mlad, svako ljeto se čini nezaboravnim i jedinstvenim, a kada si malo stariji naučiš malu tajnu...Ljeto ne mora završiti. Možemo ga zadržati u srcu. Taj osjećaj slobode i jedinstvenosti može biti tvoj, ako se usudiš učiniti ga svojim. Svaki dan pokušaj nešto novo, to je najbolji način za zadržati osjećaj slobode u srcu. Na primjer ova ogrlica koju sam izradila, odlučila sam ušiti samo jedan kamen na ovu podlogu od eko kože i sve pojednostaviti, tako da sam samo dodala ovu šarenu traku i stala na tome. To je tako jednostavan projekt, ali je bio jako zabavan i sada imam ogrlicu koja mi se jako sviđa. Sve zbog toga jer se nisam bojala pokušati nešto drukčije. Slično tome, ove točkice kojima sam oslikala ovaj stari šešir su nešto za što nisam bila vidjela, ali kada je sve bilo gotovo, bila sam sretna s rezultatom. Poanta je da nikad ne znaš ako ne pokušaš. Nema razloga zašto bi samo ljeto trebalo biti rezervirano za isprobavanje novih stvari.

  15. Dear Ivana, as usual I want only agree to your thoughts! Yes, in fact I discovered also the summer never ends and I try to keep my memories of summer in my heart and I know I will not only think a lot of about the summer moments in the winter but also speak a lot of about our summer experiences in winter with my husband :) But it is a very clever idea to bring the summer to the winter with a necklace like you created. It turned out very beautiful and again yes, if we don't try a thing we don't know if it works. You combined the necklace beautifully with the blue dress and the hat and I thank you for the summer pictures of the sea.
    Have a happy new week - hopefully at least next year the 1st of September will be your first day back in school.

    1. I often wear pantyhose to this dress, most often in black colour. You can see me wearing this dress two times in my last recap, both times with black tights and sneakers.

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.

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…
