What to wear in Summer? Sometimes simplicity is the beast answer. / Što nositi ljeti? Ponekad je jednostavnost najbolje rješenje.


Maxi skirt in the Summer? How predictable! Well, sometimes basic items can feel pretty darn good. Printed tshirt and a maxi suknja paired with sandals, it doesn't get more basic than that. Simple outfit that almost feels like a casual uniform. I wore this outfit when I went to hear a Cambridge choir perform in our local church in Mostar. They sang beautifully. Now, I'm in Split, suffering from insomnia and feling mighty tired. I'm trying to tell myself that the Summer has only started (afterall I only spent 3 hours on the beach in total ) but I know it is not so. It is not you Summer, it's me. 

Duga suknja ljeti? Kako predvidljivo! Ponekad jednostavne stvari mogu biti izvor sreće. Majica s printom i duga suknja nošene s sandalama, to su nekakve osnove osnova. Jednostavna kombinacija koja je gotovo kao ležerna uniforma. Nosila sam ovu kombinaciju kada sam išla slušati izvedbu zbora iz Cambridge u našoj lokalnoj crkvi u Mostaru. Divno su pjevali. Sada sam u Splitu, patim od nesanice i osjećam se grozno umorno. Pokušavam si reći da je ljeto tek počelo (provela sam sama tri sata u komadu na plaži dosada), ali znam da nije tako. Nije krivo ljeto, kriva sam ja.

  12. Nadam se da ćeš se ubrzo naspavati... zna se to nekada dogoditi... ja sam imala taj problem u srednjoj i bilo je strašno... nikome ne bih poželjela... nadam se da te ne muče neke brige i da će sve ubro doći na svoje!
    Kombinacija je jako lijepa, Ivana nam je sva u bijelom i jako ti lijepo stoji! Suknja je odlična! Ja nisam nešto luda za maksi suknjama na sebi, volim ih uvijek vidjeti na drugima jer su prekrasne! Pusa

  13. I just wore a maxi skirt while having dinner with my in-laws yesterday. LOL! I have never tried pairing a basic tee with maxi skirt though but it looks really good on you, Ivana.

    Sorry to hear that you're suffering insomnia, I know that feeling. I had 3 weeks of insomnia when the season changed and Summer arrived, it was horrid.

  20. Nadam se da će nesanica ubrzo nestati, mene to zna uloviti kad se ful nerviram oko nečega ili sam pod velikim stresom (iskreno se nadam da kod tebe to nije slučaj) i onda mi je ta muka sa snom nešto najgore na svijetu.

    Volim ovakve jednostavne ljetne kombinacije, u biti samo takve me i zanimaju na plus 30 stupnjeva i stvarno si super stoje boromine (rekla sam to već, ali nema veze)! Drži se, uživaj u Splitu i držim fige da se spavanje ćim prije vrati u normalu!

  28. Hey Ivana, how are you dear? Actually I see that you're fantastic and that you're feeling better, right? I'm happy about that ;)

    Summer escapades, wii! They are always necessary in order to disconnect with the world to find ourselves and pampering. Love that you're always exploring places, no matter if they are close or far, your adventure spirit is always craving for more and thanks to that we're able to know more fantastic places around the globe ! :D

    Now talking about WHAT TO WEAR IN SUMMER umm... difficult question in my opinion, I'm still suffering a lot and summer is just starting, but with this weather and the humidity is difficult to pick something! Even tho your skirt seems like a smart option for the weather and for traveling: comfortable without leaving chic behind ;)

    Regards and hope you enjoy this week!

  42. Da se nadovežem na onu temu o umoru, ja sam shvatila kako meni leto na nekom nesvesnom nivou uopšte ne prija. I dalje ga volim ali nekako već poslednjih godina me svake sezone snađe nešto. Sećam se da je prošlog leta bila u pitanju užasna nesanica i strašna hiperaktivnost koja me je poptuno iscedila. U svakom slučaju, nadam se da si se makar malo naspavala u međuvremenu.
    Da se vratim lepšim temama, mislim da i sama znaš koliko volim haljine i sunkje naksi dužine, a ovako svakodnevno su mi takve sunje i majice zaista uniforma jer nema nekog velikog razmišljanja oko njih, a udobne su i prikladne za sve. Tvoja suknja je baš lepa i baš bi mi lepo došla tako neka plisirana :D Divna si od glave do pete i sama bih vrlo rado nosila sve kao i ti :)

  44. Hello Ivana! I totally agree with you that basic clothes are terrific choices for the question: "what to wear today?" and I really like how you styled your maxi skirt (which in my opinion isn't as much predictable as you thought, it's really lovely!) :D What's more, sounds like you spent great time listening that choir, I'm sure that it was great performance :) What's more sorry to hear about your insomnia, dear, hope that everything will back to normality soon, Ivana! :)

  61. Soon as I read that first paragraph even without seeing the pictures I thought 'a printed tee and maxi skirt paired with sandals would feel pretty darn good. Comfy too. Not to mention mighty chic. Then I scrolled down and you sure do look comfy and chic.

    Your pleated maxi skirt is so pretty. I came upon a similar one in my web travels today but I'm not exceeding my shopping budget for the month so I passed.

    Must have been nice to watch the choir. I used to be in my church choir a couple years ago not because I could sing that good but I was giving a gift of my time . Hilarious!
    You are definitely better than me cos I haven't even made it over to the beach yet and school is about to be back in session.

    Your church is beautiful and so is Split. It has a peaceful air about it and the canal appears quite calming. If I lived there, I'd probably hang out there often.

    I hope you've managed to catch up on sleep. Have a very restful weekend Ivana.

  62. I agree with you hun, sometimes simple outfits are just the best! :) I always like to keep things simple myself, I'm honestly not great when it comes to fashion and don't usually spend more than two minutes putting my outfit together, haha. So simple and lovely outfits such as this one are definitely right up my alley! <3 I take it the summer over there has been pretty hot? We've finally had some sunshine in the UK for a change, although they're saying it's going to be a month of rain and thunderstorms now, eep! x x x

WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN BLAGAJ ( BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA)

I truly enjoy showing you around Bosnia and Herzegovina. Have you noticed that? You know, there are some really amazing destinations in this country. Today I'll take you to beautiful Blagaj, located only a short drive from Mostar city. Blagaj is a picturesque historical village located in Herzegovina region. This little green river oasis is an increasingly popular tourist destination and not without a reason. Blagaj village has got one of the strongest and most beautiful river springs in Europe. This stunning and potent water spring creates Buna river and is a impressive example of karst river formation. Right next to it you can find a historical dervish house (tekija) that is open all year round. 
The dervish house dates back to the sixteenth century.  It placed right next to the entrance to the cave  where the river Buna springs from and it is an incredible site. The cliff over the cave is a very impressive sight as well! You can even go for a boat ride in the cave and see this…

READING UPDATE: ASIMOV'S ROBOT SERIES AND BUY JUPITER SHORT STORY COLLECTION

As some of you might know, one of my favourite science fiction authors is Isaac Asimov. I've always loved science fiction. I have grown up reading it and I never really stopped. Asimov's Robot Series is composed of six novels and thirty seven short stories. Recently I've read a few novels in the Asimov's Robot series and today I'm going to share my reviews of them. I'm also going to share my reviews of some of the novels from this series that I have read in the past. Moreover, I'm going to share my review of Buy Jupiter and other stories by Isaac Asimov, a short story collection that features some stories from his Robot universe. As for the fashion part of the post, nothing I'm wearing is new (and you know it because I signed up for Slow Fashion initiative). I had this yellow top for ages (see how I styled it here and here) and that goes for this olive green pencil skirt and the boromina sandals. However, the bag is new. I forgot about that- it was a g…

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…
