Potraži me u predgrađu....Search for me in the suburbs....

This post is long overdo. Actually these photographs were taken as far back as last Spring. I know, they've been in the archives for a while now. All the reason more to finally share them here. The location where these photographs were taken is Rodoch. If you want to see more photographs from this place, you can check out this recent post of mine.

Ova objava dosta kasni jer zapravo ove fotografije su uslikane prošloga proljeća. Znam, znam, već su dugo u arhivi. Razlog više da ih konačno podijelim. Lokacija za ove fotografije bio je Rodoč. Želite li vidjeti više fotografija iz ovoga mjesta, možete ih vidjeti u ovoj nedavnoj objavi.

Ova dvorišta puna neba i ptica                        These yards filled with sky and birds
uđu kao muzika stara                           like old music access a place
nekad duboko u nas                      somewhere deep in us
i tu zauvijek ostaju.                       and remain there forever
Tu ćeš sresti                              You will meet there
davno poznata lica               long known faces
jedan je kuštravi dječak              one boy with messy hair
uvijek u proljeće tu,                is always here in Spring
ti znaš zašto dolazi. *                     you know why he comes.

                                                              lyrics from this song/  stihovi ove pjesme


I will probably never get tired of wearing this midi skirt. This time I decided to pair it with a dress! I often wear dresses as tops. I think that one of the reasons I do it of practical nature. I own more dresses than tops. Do you ever wear skirts over dresses? What do you think about it? Speaking of this dress, it features embroidery I did myself. Do you like this embroidery trend? Have you ever tried doing embroidery?

Nikada mi neće dosaditi ova suknja dužine do gležnjeva. Ovoga puta odlučila sam je uskladiti s haljinom. Čestom nosim haljine umjesto majica (topova). Mislim da je jedan od razloga čisto praktične prirode. Imam više haljina nego majica. Nosite li vi ikada suknje preko haljina? Što vam se čini od toga? Kad smo već kod haljine, vez na njoj sam sama radila. Sviđa li vam se ovaj trend veza na odjeći? Jeste li sami nešto slično probali?

This area is know as Varda. Its located about Rodoch. The view from there is quite stunning, wouldn't you agree? I'm always amazed at just how much beauty there is in the area surrounding Mostar city. During Spring, everything is so green. I love it. That would be all for today. Thank you for reading!

Ovo područje je poznato kao Varda, a nalazi se iznad Rodoča. Pogled odavde je jako lijep, zar se ne biste složili? Uvijek se oduševim koliko ljepota ima u ovom području koje okružuje grad Mostar. U proljeće je sve zeleno i jako mi se to sviđa. To bi bilo sve za danas. Hvala na čitanju!

  9. It may be a year later but it's like you've come full circle since it's around the same time that you took these last year. Glad you shared them. Rodoch looks beautiful and the spring spirit is alive in these photos. And it's easy to see why you can't get enough of that pretty midi skirt. The style is so classic and versatile.

  10. Such beautiful flowers and pics)) You look so classy Ivana. The skirt is adorable!

  11. SO much that I love about this post! I love your clever embroidery! I keep meaning to embroider stars onto a shirt, but I am scared to ruin it! Your midi skirt is fab- I like them for swishing in!
    The views of Mostar are refreshingly empty of human signs!x

    1. it is not actually a view of Mostar...this area is located near Mostar. It is above Rodoch ( a sort of suburb of Mostar city).

  12. A dress? I would have sworn it's a skirt and a top. It's beautiful Ivana, and the embroidery is amazing. Girl you have many talents, that's for sure. Love the spring spirit in the pics above and you look beautiful in this elegant outfit.

  13. I swear you live in a beautiful place, Ivana. Yes, these pictures are from last Spring but gosh, you are surrounded by beautiful nature. I have never tried the whole dress as top trend but I'm also not very experimental with my wardrobe.

  14. Very chic outfit ! This skirt is perfect on you :)

  15. Predivne fotografije i uopšte ne smeta što nisu najnovije. A, tek stihovi, baš, baš mi se dopadaju.

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.

If there is one outfit that screams spring and summer for me, it's dresses worn with sneakers. Naturally, dresses and sandals is another lovely pairing, but sneakers also have many benefits. From being orthopedic (not all of them but still) to being appropriate for all kind of terrains, there is no denying that sneakers are practical. You can take them anywhere, from a rock beach to a sandy one. You can pair them fun socks or tights for those days it's still not warm enough. Long story short, they do make for a lovely choice in this season. What are your thoughts? Do you like to wear sneakers in spring and summer? My last post was about styling dad sneakers with jeans and a blazer, and today I'll show you some of my favourite sneaker and dress combinations. If you ask me, the answer to the question can I wear dresses with sneakers is - yes, you absolutely can.

 I find that while androgynous style has its benefits, generally…


My outfit proposal of the day is a casual one. I feel that not too long ago a blazer worn with jeans wouldn't have been exactly my first choice, especially paired with dad's sneakers, but times are changing. One of fun things about trends is that they can make you step outside of your comfort zone a little bit. Obviously, we shouldn't follow trends just for the sake of following them, but often they can give us inspiration. I certainly like to look at them that way, as a source of inspiration. Fashion moves in circles, so playing up with trends doesn't really have to cost anything, especially if you have already mastered shopping your own closet. The athletic sneaker trend is certainly a tempting one. It's hard to say not to the comfy sneakers trend, especially when you enjoy hiking and strolling around as much as I do. Most people do have an ugly sneaker in their closet. It is possibly the most comfortable option out there, so why not try styling it for every day…


I often write about shopping one's closet on this little blog of mine. Not only is shopping our closet  a sustainable thing to do, it also helps us to get to know our closet. How can you really know your wardrobe options if you don't style and wear your clothes? The potential of every clothing item increases with a bit of tender love and care (TLC). One of the things I love about shopping one's closet is the opportunity to create stories with our clothing items. When we care about a clothing item, we're more likely to take good care of it and that can help make us more environmentally conscious. Most people could really benefit from learning how to take better care of their clothes, that's for sure. We live in an era of 'wear it then throw it'. This consumerist approach is what makes fashion industry such a horrible polluter. We can all help to change that with our every day choices. Good news is that we can all help it in a variety of ways. From buying vi…
