Travelling is a state of mind / Putovanje je stanje svijesti

Sometimes travelling is a state of mind. You can always play the tourist in the city you happen to live in....as I do often in Split and Mostar. The desire to explore, to see new things, to discover is not something that can be bought. One can always travel....travel in mind, travel in time, travel in your own home town....Never understimate the power of a long walk. It does wonders for one's body and it is just as good for the mind and the soul. 


Ponekad je putovanje stanje svijesti. Uvijek možete glumiti turista u gradu u kojem živite, kao što ja to često činim u Splitu i u Mostaru. Želja za istraživanjem, za viđenjem novog, za okrivanjem je nešto što se ne može kupiti. Uvijek se može putovati, putovati umom, putovati u vremenu, putovati u vlastitom gradu....Nemojte nikad podcjenjivati dugu šetnju. Čini čuda za tijelo i jednako je dobra za um i dušu.

  1. Absolutely agree - I love exploring the places I call home. There's always something new to experience; some new encounter with place or people. It's part of staying curious and seeing things afresh each day. Love those trousers - perfectly autumnal.

  2. Slažem se s tobom, igranje turista u gradovima u kojima živimo je uvijek zabavno, a ništa nije bolje od duge i opuštajuće šetnje :))
    Super izgledaš, sviđa mi se ovaj dugački kardigan!

  12. The only travelling I'm doing these days are through travel blogs, enjoying the pictures and writing shared by others and I live by them. Maybe one day I will get the opportunity to experience the other countries myself but for now, I just enjoy them online.

  13. Totally agree with you that travelling is a state of mind and it doesn't mean that we should be in different place and you're right, sometimes we forget that long walk could be good for us and for our soul :) Btw, you look stunning, Ivana , it this black cardigan and what's more, you pose like a real model, great job, dear ;)

  20. Znaš da se u potpunosti slažem sa tobom ;) Jako si lepo ti rekla, u tome je i cela suština jer čak i onaj ko putuje često ili negde daleko, a nema to stanje svesti, kao da nigde nije ni otišao...
    Mnogo mi se sviđa kombinacija, a pantalone su me oduševile. Tako su slatke i vesele i sjajno prilagođene ovom vremenu. Uvek si tako inovativna i inspirativna :) Mesto je takođe divno. Baš uživam u ovim malim virtuelnim šetnjama :)

  21. Divnoooo! Pantalone su preslatke i neobicne. Slazem se skroz sa tvojim stavom o putovanjima i o znacaju setnje, istrazivanja i upoznavanja skrivenih kutaka, ne samo u inostranstvu, vec i u sopstvenom gradu :)

  51. Čim sam vidjela hlače, pomislila sam da si ih ti doradila. Rezultat je odličan, a navodno je takvo što sad i jako popularno i trendy koliko vidim na IG, svi nešto šaraju po trapericama :) Tvoje su ipak nešto drugo. Sviđa mi se jako kroj i odlično ti stoji.
    Slažem se za šetnje. One su moj ispušni ventil. Iako ih sada baš nemam toliko vremena prakticirati (barem ne sama)... prošli sam tjedan na putu od liječnika, išla pješice cijelim putem do kuće moje mame. Prehodala sam neka tri km i baš mi je trebalo takvo što. Nisam se željela zaustaviti... samo hodaš i hodaš i misliš ili ne misliš... dišeš i živiš punim plućima.

    1. istina i meni su šetnje spas...puno sjedim za kompjuterom kad radim prijevode, a kada to neradim onda opet sjedim i šijem ili crtam...te su svakodnevne šetnje pravi odmor i fizički i psihički.

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.

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…

SUMMER TO AUTUMN OUTFITS FEATURING A VINTAGE BLACK MAXI DRESS

Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…
