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.

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
