How to spice up an outfit with a scarf? (...and revisiting Medugorje) Kako začiniti odjevnu kombinaciju s rubcem? (...i ponovni posjet Međugorju)

Medjugorje in Herzegovina, a little village, but visited by millions every year. We're there fairly often, sometimes as much as a few times a month. In immediate vicinity of the church in Medjugorje you can find this little ethno village that still isn't open for business but you can visit it anyway, just to admire it---as we did last week! It is close to our friend's place. The first time my husband was here was quite a long time ago, when our friends (the one I just mentioned) decided to have their wedding photos taken here. My husband was also there for that photoshot, being the best man and all. Since then this place has often been our stop. It is still under contructions (more than four years and counting) but its grows more beautiful with every visit of ours.  Read about my previous visits:  here (2016), here (2015),  here (2014), here (2013). It is in this location that I shoot my post about different ways to wear a scarf (here) and today I will show you another trick. In post I will wear a scarf both around my neck and around my waist. You may have noticed that I like wearing scarves as belts. Scarves and foulards are the perfect accessories, aren't they? I always felt like they can spice up any old outfit. How do you like my styling? I've had this green dress forever, but I never seem to get tired of wearing it. This outfit has one DIY element, can you guess what it is?

Međugorje u Hercegovini, maleno selo, ali posjećuju ga milijuni svake godine. Mi smo tamo dosta često, ponekad nekoliko puta mjesečno. U blizini crkve u Međugorju možete pronaći ovo malo etno selo koje još nije otvoreno za noćenje, ali ga svejedno možete posjetiti da biste mu se divili- kao što smo mi učinili prošloga tjedna. Blizu  je kuće naših prijatelja. Prvi put kada je moj muž bio ovdje je bilo prije dosta dugo, kada su se naši prijatelji, ti koje sam spomenula, tu slikali za vjenčanje, a moj muž je bio s njima jer im je bio kum. Otada je ovo mjesto naše stajalište. Još je pod izgradnjom (već više od četiri godine). U engleskome dijelu teksta možete pronaći moje poveznice za prijašnje objave, a na ovoj lokaciji sam snimila i objavu o različitim načina na koje se može nositi rubac. Prikladno, jer danas ću nositi rubac i oko vrata i oko struka. Možda ste primijetili kako volim nositi rupce kao remene. Marame ili rupci, to dvoje je savršeni modni dodatak, zar ne? Uvijek sam imala osjećaj da svaku kombinaciju mogu osvježiti. Kako vam se sviđa ova kombinacija? Imam ovu zelenu haljinu već sto godina i nikako da mi dosadi. Ima malo i moga rada u ovoj odjevnoj kombinaciji, što mislite o čemu se radi?

  18. Prekrasno mesto, idealno za fotografisanje! Mnogo mi se dopada haljinica, obozavam ovu tamnu nijansu zelene boje, a lepo si je i uklopila sa maramom. Uvek das kombinaciji neki svoj licni pecat i to mi se upravo i dopada :-*

  21. Kakvo savršeno mesto! :) ne mogu da mu se nadivim. baš me ne čudi što su se vaši prijatelji slikali tamo, verujem da su im fotografije savršene u takvom abijentu. Tvoje gledam već nekoliko puta i nemam reči koliko je svaki detalj divan. Plus ti tako prelepa u toj damskoj kombinaciji :) Marama je baš osvežila tamniji kolorit i uopšte me čudi što ih toliko voliš. Stvarno su kao stvorene za eksperimentisanje, a mogućnosti je bezbroj :)

  22. you look really, really fab my dear! i LOVE scarfs too. they are such a cool accessory for every kind of clothing stuff. i like the scarf that you wear - this colourmix is a nice one.

    and your white nail polish is such an eyecatcher: bright and good looking. and yes, i see your very special unique tights again. this idea to wear an opaque tights to this outfit is: 2 thumbs up...;-)

    great post Ivana!

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.

WHAT IS AN IDEAL MAXI DRESS FOR A SUMMER VACATION?

Hello, lovely readers! Summer is finally here. Are you as excited about summer as I am? Today I'm back with another summer styling, and this time it's about a white floral maxi dress. I love white items for the summer, and if they come with a floral print even better. If you read my last post, you know that I decided to welcome the summer in bay Torac (on island Hvar, Croatia). I told you that one of the first things I packed was a yellow jumpsuit as it is a good vacay item and so easy to throw on when you're at the beach. Another essential vacation classic is a maxi dress. This white maxi dress with a cute floral print proved to be the perfect vacation item because it is so easy to dress up and down (for example, here you can see how I styled this maxi with kitten heels). I actually got this white maxi dress as a part of a collaboration review post last year. Today you can see me wearing it in a more dressed down summer version, with tropical print sandals (same here) an…

STYLING A YELLOW JUMPSUIT FOR SUMMER ( BAY TORAC, ISLAND HVAR)

How to style a yellow floral jumpsuit for summer? You know when I packed for island Hvar (Croatia), this yellow jumpsuit was one of the first things I packed. I don't wear jumpsuits and playsuits that often during the colder months but I opt for them often enough when it gets warmer. One great thing about a floral jumpsuit is that it is a statement piece on its own. That means that styling it is quite easy. Another advantage of this kind of garment is that you can easily dressed up or down. I wore this yellow jumpsuit to beach, so I dressed it down with a beach bag and white sandals. If I were to dress it up, I would probably pair it with heels (as I did here and here). 
Jumpsuits are simply ideal for vacation wear. They are so easy to thrown on. I like to wear them over swimsuits for that beach chic look. I got this jumpsuit in a collaboration last year, and I'm still not bored of it. I definitely plan to wear it a lot for my island Hvar trip. Yellow is such a great colour f…

A PRINTED DRESS FOR CATCHING A FERRY IN SUCURAJ, ISLAND HVAR (CROATIA)

What to wear when you're travelling? In summer, I often opt for print dresses because they are fun and seem to go well with anything. I packed quite a few printed dresses for my visit to island Hvar (Croatia). As long as the dresses are comfortable, they are my 'go to' travel outfit. This mixed print dress is one of my favourite travel summer dresses. You have seen me wear it a lot on this blog, especially for hiking and sightseeing (and you know I believe in shopping one's closet). It's a great day to night dress as well, quite easy to dress up and down. My outfit proposal of the day is more casual in tone so you could said that I dressed the dress down. The shoes I choose to go along with this dress are printed sandals from Art brand. I bought them when I was in Split last spring and they're super comfortable (not sponsored).  I also wore a backpack because they are more practical for travelling. I have quite a pragmatic mind when it comes to fashion, and I …
