TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white items. I have worn both of these outfits recently. You can still wear them if your autumn proves to be a warm one. If it's cold where you're from, you can turn these outfit proposals into autumn ones by adding a blazer. 

You know I'm all about making the most of my closet. I bought this scarf last year. I have a lot of second hand and vintage scarves, but this one I bought new. I made up for that by wearing it a lot. Generally speaking, I wear scarves a lot and I have already wrote about that on this little place of mine. READ ABOUT FOUR WAYS TO WEAR A SCARF

MORE WAYS TO STYLE THIS SCARF
1. TIE IT AROUND YOUR HAT ( Here, here and here you can see how I styled it around my straw hat. I calculated that I wore it this way on at least a dozen occasions in the past few months). 
2. TIE IT AROUND YOUR HAIR (Here  and here you can see how I wore it to secure my ponytail. If you ask me this is the perfect way to make your ponytail more chic). 
3. BELT YOUR SKIRT WITH IT(Here you can see how I wore it as a belt for a denim skirt)
4. TIE IT AROUND YOUR NECK  ( Here you can see how I tied it around my neck for a business look. Moreover, here and here you can see a more chic version of wearing this scarf).

THE STORY OF AN OUTFIT: WHITE CHERRY PRINT DRESS BELTED WITH A SCARF
I felt really comfortable in this dress. A-line dress are the best! I wore this outfit last Sunday with a black bag and kitten heels. It proved to be a good Sunday look. You can see how I styled this A- line cherry print dress  here, here, here and here. You can see how I styled these kitten heels here and here. The bag I already wore in one of my recent outfit post (it's new but a gift, I didn't buy it myself). It comes with a smaller bag inside, so it can be worn in two ways. 
I feel a bit sad about putting these beautiful kitten heels away. Maybe I should keep them and wear them with tights and socks for autumn and winter. I love to wear heels with tights and socks, so maybe I should try to do it with these kitten heeled sandals as well. What do you think?
I do love how warm and sunny Mediterranean climate is. Herzegovina is such a sunny place, Mostar city especially so. We bask in sunshine and appreciate the fact that autumns often feel like summer. Sometimes it feels a bit too warm, especially when you need to spend a day in an office and you're rather be on a beach somewhere, but I'm always aware of its many benefits. 
 THE STORY OF AN OUTFIT: SCARF HEADBAND, RUFFLED TUNICS, BOROMINA SANDALS AND CAPRI JEANS
I'm going to show you why it is a great idea to wrap a scarf around your headband. It will not only give your headband a fresh look, it is also a more hygienic option. I know that not everyone washes their headbands (they should because human hair contains natural oils). It is easier to wash a scarf than a headband so there you go. You can just wrap different materials around the headband(s) you have and you will end up with endless unique and beautiful headbands. Headbands have been trendy for a while, so if you want to jump on the trend keep in the mind that you don't actually have to buy multiple ones. It seems a more sustainable thing to do, doesn't it?
 I wore this outfit not too long ago for a visit to beautiful Buna river (I really can't get enough of that place and you know it's so close to Mostar). Anyhow, this was such a fun and comfy outfit to wear. The water looked so inviting that I couldn't resist taking my sandals off and going to explore the river a bit. I ended up finding a place to sit in a middle of a river. I felt like a mermaid resting. Buna river is so enchantingly beautiful, I really felt like I have woken up in a fairy-tale. A few more words about my outfit. I decided to tuck this off shoulder tunics in my Amadeus pair of capri jeans. I've actually wrote about this tunics recently, here you can read about 8 WAYS TO STYLE A RUFFLED TUNICS! You can see how I styled these capri jeans in the past here.

As always. thank you for reading and visiting!

  13. Thank you for your tips on how to style a scarf, Ivana. Apart from wearing them around my neck, I sometimes wear a scarf tied around one of my plain summer hats. With my short hair, I hardly ever wear a scarf as a head band, but I have never thought of wearing one as a belt. That last tip offers so many possibilities, as I wear belts on an almost daily basis. I'll definitely be trying that one out. I'm seriously loving your cute, cherry print, dress by the way! Hope you'll have a great week! xxx

  14. I really love those patterned outfits of yours, both the top and the dress are just wonderful. My friend recently showed me how to wrap a scarf into turban with a crown and I just loved the look, I think it can be perfect for the summertime by the beach <3

  16. HI Ivana,
    I Loves the two ways to style a scarf.
    I think that you should try use the kitten heeled sandals with socks. If you like you should try. I think that will be beautifull.
    Here in Rio all seasons often feel like summer. We say that we have two seasons: summer and hell. I think that I'll like the Herzegovina.

  18. Oh, dear Ivana, this post is for me! Thanks a lot! I own so many scarfs but have to admit that I wear them rarely. Therefore, now I have a lot of new ideas to wear them thanks to you. I like especially the idea to wrap the scarf around a headband and it amazes me how lovely your cherry print dress looks with the scarf. Thank you again for the wonderful inspirations.

  19. Ultimamente piace tantissimo anche a me indossare il foulard nei capelli, come fascia o anche come fiocco sulla coda!
    Mi piace molto anche sul cappello e devo dire che anche intorno alla vita è un'idea tutta da provare!
    Sei deliziosa con entrambi i look Ivana, l'abito ti sta alla perfezione, ma il secondo con i jeans corti è davvero fresco ed originale!
    Baci!

Inspired by..... Tijana/ Nadahnuta....Tijanom

Hi everyone! It's time for another Inspired by....post. The medium is acrylic on cardboard. This time I illustrated Tijana from fashion abejita. Painting lace is always a challenge and I'm aware that I have a long way to go when it comes to illustrating fabrics, but all things considering, I think I did pretty well. In fact, I'm quite happy with how this painting turned out. This outfit is a summery one, but it is suitable for Spring as well. Besides, green is in this Spring. 
Zdravo svima! Vrijeme je za još jednu Nadahnuta s...objavu. Medij su akrilne boje na kartonu. Ovaj put sam naslikala Tijanu sa bloga fashion abejita. Slikati čipku je izazov i znam da imam još puno toga za naučiti kada je ilustriranje tekstila u pitanju, no  kada se sve uzme u obzir, mislim da ova slika nije loše ispala. Zapravo,  poprilično sam zadovoljna s time kako je slika ispala. Ova kombinacija je ljetna, ali zapravo se može nositi i na proljeće. Osim toga, zelena je sada u trendu.

HOW TO STYLE BLACK CORD FLARES FOR AUTUMN? OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Are you wondering what fabrics to reach for this Autumn? Corduroy items are perfect for creating cozy autumn outfits. So, I'm assuming most of you (if not all) have at least one pair of dark (cord) jeans.  How to style black corduroy flare jeans for autumn? Today I'll show you an easy autumnal styling. When in doubt go for a black and white styling, for it always look elegant. Here I paired my dark cord jeans with a white shirt and a white blazer. This classic colour combo allowed me to play with accessories a bit. I made things more interesting by adding statement earrings and a scarf in the mix. I also wore high heeled boots for the extra elongating effect. Alright, I'm quite tall, but this combo makes me look even taller. Flare jeans can be so flattering, especially high rise ones.

READING UPDATE & NEW BOOK REVIEWS: OCTOBER COUNTRY, WILD LIFE AND DIDO, QUEEN OF CARTHAGE

Time for another reading update. Today I'll review three books: a novel, a collection of stories and a play. The novel Wild Life by Molly Gloss was my first work by this author. October Country is a work by author I was already familiar with. In fact some of you might remember that I have a great fondness for Ray Bradbury. His Fahrenheit 451 is one of my favourite dystopian novels of all times.  So, I was happy I was able to pick up a collection of his short stories. Finally, I read a play by Christopher Marlowe. This is another author I was already familiar with (I did study English language and literature). I enjoyed Marlowe's version of Doctor Faustus myth, so I decided to see what his others works are like. So far, I read one and a half play but I plan to finish them all by the end of the month. I was also rereading Shakespeare a lot lately because that is always a good idea. I do upload most of my reading on goodreads so you can check my reading progress there as well. 

O…
