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.

Today I'm taking you to Rujište, a mountain oasis located only a short drive away from Mostar city. This beautiful area is located on mountain Prenj. Nicknamed the Herzegovina Himalayas, mountain Prenj boosts of peaks over two thousand meters high. We didn't go all the way to the top this time, though. Instead, we payed another visit to Snow House (Snježna kuća) hotel. This time I shared my lunch with the hotel's cat, not the dog (for the yellow dog I made friends with last time was nowhere to be seen). In addition, we tried the new recreational hiking track. I'm happy to report that my review of this track will be a positive one. The length of the track is around one kilometer, the climb is approximately seventy meters so it is perfect for recreational hikers.  Moreover, there are workout tables and instructions throughout the track (for those who really want to get serious about their fitness). Weekends are a great time to get back to shape (or at least try to). Spe…


With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…


14 years an expat in Bosnia and Herzegovina and I only discovered this place a few weeks ago. In fact, the two of us discovered it by chance. Event my significant other (a local and the reason why I moved to Herzegovina in the first place) didn't know about this place. You can find this amazing natural monument in vicinity of Mostar city.  Here is the spot where river Neretva divides in two, forming a pool like surface running on one end and a quick river on other. The same river, but two completely different scenes, running side by side. I hope to be able to visit this spot again some time soon, it's truly magnificent. We were fortunate in that summer lasted a bit longer here, so many early autumn days were very sunny and warm (as you can see for yourself). 

Not too long I have written about different ways to style a floral dress for every season (21 WAY TO STYLE A MINI FLORAL DRESS). Moreover, I admitted to being something of a enthusiast when it comes…
