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.

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today. 
Murakami is a writer whom most readers either love or dislike. Options are rather divided when it comes to Murakami, some say he is genius, other claim all his novels are alike. Do you know of whom does Murakami reminds me? Of a cat! He…


Today I'll review a true classic of children's literature: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a book by L. Frank Baum. I have read this book fairly recently, so it is still fresh in my mind. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I actually enjoyed it a lot, so my book review is also  a book recommendation.  This classic of children literature is such a well rounded tale. You can read The  Wonderful Wizard of Oz for free on the pages of project Gutenberg here (that's also the source for the quotes I'm going to use).

First, a few words from the author himself:  Folklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhood through the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesome and instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous and manifestly unreal. The winged fairies of Grimm and Andersen have brought more happiness to childish hearts than all other human creations.Yet the old time fairy tale, having served for generations, m…


Pleated items are very in right now. Every fashionista who likes this material is probably over the moon about that and even those who don't follow trends must be satisfied when a material they like becomes more available. I'm quite happy because I do appreciate the way pleat adds texture to our outfits. This expensive looking trend can be surprisingly affordable, especially if you're good at shopping second hand or just finding good discounts. Pleated items are simply perfectly for creating romantic, elegant and even whimsical outfits.  Pleat can even make old school glam seem easy!
Pleated items come in many shapes and form. I personally have a shirt I adore. However, perhaps the most practical incarnation of the pleated trend (for us ladies that is) would be the pleated skirt. A pleated maxi or midi skirt is such an easy way to add some femininity, texture and chic into your wardrobe. Today I'll show you how to style a beige pleated skirt for cold weather. Now, thi…
