What I wore this morning / Što sam jutros nosila ( tshirt with DIY heart patches / majica s ušivenim srcima)

 7.30 am. I'm awake. I awoke a bit later than usual this morning.  I wash my face and turn on my laptop. My husband reminds me that yesterday I had said something about how I will go hiking every morning from now on. He is right, I did say that. I turn off my laptop, wash my face once more and grab the first items that come to my hand. It is pure luck these two clothing items happen to match...or maybe it is not luck. I customized them myself, didn't I? DIY has its perks. Anyway, I'm already out of the house and rushing towards the hills because this is Mostar. That means the temperature will rise very high very quickly. As I climb the hill, I'm struggling to make out the mountains in the distance. The heat has made everything seem blurred, but in a way that makes landscape magical. 

8.15 am. Missed call. I must have toned down the volume and forgot about it. It doesn't matter, it's time to get back anyway. I type a message and head back. I had my 15 minutes of peace. Sometimes it is all it takes. We'll see if I will manage to keep up these morning walks. I think I would be wise to set my alarm clock a lot earlier. It is Summer and it won't get any cooler, plus I'm back in this city. Early morning start sounds like the right thing to do. What do you think? When is it time for your daily walk? Do you tend to go for a stroll? Do you take long or do you prefer short walks? Do you plan them? I remember reading that walking is one of the best exercises for our body. What I come to discover is that it is really good for the soul. Anyhow, that is my personal experience.

 7.30. Budna sam. Jutros sam se probudila malo kasnije nego obično. Umivam se i uključujem laptop. Muž me podsjeća kako sam jučer govorila nešto o tome kako ću odsata svako jutro ići malo šetati po brdima. U pravu je, stvarno sam to rekla. Gasim laptop, još jednom se umivam i uzimam prvo što mi dolazi pod ruku. Sasvim slučajno se ta dva odjevna predmeta slažu, no možda to i nije sreća jer sam ih sama prekrojila. Nekad dobro dođu ti "izradi sam" projekti. Kakogod, već sam van kuće i žurim prema brdima jer je ovo Mostar, što znači da će se temperatura podignuti jako visoko jako brzo. Dok se penjem na brdo, mučim se razabrati planine u daljini. Vrućina je sve zamaglila, ali na neki način to čini krajolik čarobnim.

8.15. Propušten poziv. Sigurno sam smanjila ton i zaboravila na to. Nije važno, ionako je vrijeme da se vratim. Tipkam poruku i krećem nazad. Imala sam svojih petnaestak minuta mira. Ponekad je to sve što nam treba. Vidjet ćemo hoću li uspjeti u ovom planu jutrarnjih šetnji. Mislim da bi bilo pametno naviti alarm ranije. Ljeto je, neće postati svježije, a ja sam opet u ovom gradu. Rani početak dana čini se kao prava odluka. Što vi mislite? Kada krećete u dnevnu šetnju? Imate li običaj prošetati?  Volite li duge ili kratke šetnje? Planirate ih? Sjećam se da sam pročitala da je šetnja jedna od najboljih vježbi za tijelo. Ono što sam otkrila je da je doista dobra za dušu. Barem u mom slučaju.

  2. Odlične slike, kombinacija, priroda!
    Šetnje su odlična stvar, i za dušu i za organizam.
    Super su i šetnje po noći. Da radim samo jutarnju, išla bih prije posla, ovako lovim sve moguće prilike.
    Koja je to planina u izmaglici na slikama?

  3. I really like the idea of going for a morning walk. It's sounds like a great way to start the day while getting some exercise as well. It's cool how you recorded your experience like a diary entry. I've loved that DIY top ever since the first time you showed it to is. The contrasting stripes look fantastic together.

  4. It's so good to see you back, Ivana, I was worried that you've stopped blogging completely. Everyone wake up very early in our house, it's between 5.30-6.30am and even the little one is an early riser. I feel like we never waste the day because we wake up this early and I get lots of things done. We do go to bed very early though, sometimes 9.30pm and the latest is 10.00pm.

    1. I was away to visit my grandmother and I ended up being without internet connection...which turned out pretty well and gave me change to rest more.

  5. I have also read (very recently, in fact!) about walking being massively beneficial for the body - I suppose it's because it uses all parts of the body! Lovely idea to walk in the morning by the way, I tend to do all of my workouts at night. I love this striped top on you by the way, you look so beautiful :)

    1. yes, it does use most of the parts of the body. I think swimming is an even better exercise, but it is not as easily available as walking.

  9. I ja volim da setam i slazem se da je leti najbolje vreme krenuti sto ranije. Ima neceg magicnog u jutru bili mi u gradu, na planini ili na moru.
    Odevna kombinacija je skroz slatka I udobna, posebno mi se dopala majica sa nasivenim srcima. Jako lepo!

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.

HOW TO STYLE RED CLOTHING ITEMS FOR WINTER?

A few posts ago (yes, bloggers calculate time in post activity), I wrote about red accessories for winter but I also wanted to write about red clothing items you can wear this time of year. In fact, I was planning to write a big post about wearing red in winter but I realized that I need to split it in two because it was too long. Apparently, I have a lot to say about why wearing red in winter is a good idea. So, today I'll basically post the part two of my red in winter fashion musings. Red is a bold, energetic and dramatic colour. If you ask me, wearing red is a great way to invoke good luck in our new year. You can pair red with neutral colours to tone it down or with vibrant ones to make your outfits even more noticeable. Lunar Year festivities are a perfect time to embrace the red clothing items. Moreover, Valentine's Day is not too far off either. If you're looking for some winter red outfit inspiration, you have come to the right place. HOW TO WEAR RED IN WINTER?   My…

READING UPDATE: KAZUO ISHIGURO, THE BURIED GIANT AND MORE

Hello dear readers, how's life treating you? It's time for another reading update on my blog. You guys know that I'm a bookworm and a reading addict, right? Today I have a couple of book reviews to share with you. I'll be reviewing four books (more precisely: two novels and two short story collections). It's a mixed crowd of writers that I'm reviewing, from Nobel winning Kazuo Ishiguro to some other well known authors. So, let's get started. Scroll down to read my opinion of these books.  THE BURIED GIANT, A NOVEL BY KAZUO ISHIGURO 5/5 Having seen a fascinating interview with mr. Ishiguro about this very book, I had high expectations for The Buried Giant. I'm happy to report that my expectations were fulfilled. Once again, Kazuo Ishiguro impressed me his subtle and beautiful writing. This novel is a masterpiece. The Buried Giant is very moving tale of an elderly couple in search for their lost past. Axl and Beatrix share a strong connection, but just lik…

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
