Piece Of Art


 Sweater one of a kind (gift), leggings Forever 21, boots and beanie Urban Planet, bag Ebay.

I don’t get to spend a lot of weekends at home or when I do, there is usually a lot of things to catch up on so they usually fly by running around. But this weekend was one of those rare ones where I get to sleep in and do what I choose, or not do anything at all. Well usually on those days I go very casual. This weekend I chose to wear this sweater my grandmother bought for me few years ago. Now I know this will not be to everyone’s liking as it is not your modern sweater. This is actually piece of art, a one of a kind. Some of you may know (if you follow my blog) that I am of Serbian background (as in Novak Djokovic) not Siberia (trust me, people get confused more than you would think). This sweater is a traditional art work done on sweaters, linens, etc from the region in Western Serbia where my family is from. Each piece is one of a kind and is hand made of real wool. Amazing quality and warmth. As I said, to me this is like a piece of art therefore I keep everything else very simple so it would not compete.
Some of you may agree that with everything good that came with the Internet, loss of borders between nations, and so on, some of that uniqueness and tradition that every culture has, is getting lost. We all start to look the same quite a bit. And don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of good in it. But I love the richness in art, fashion, food that comes from all of the world's different countries. This for me is tradition done 21st century way. Your thoughts? Ciao!

Drage dame nadam se da ste uspele da se odmorite ovog vienda i napunite baterije za novu sedmicu. Ja napokon jesam! Vikend sam provela u casual varijanti i obukla ovaj divni dzemper, poklon od moje bake. Predpostavljam da vecina vas s Balkana prepoznaje da je ovo tradicionalni rucni rad iz zapadne Srbije, odakle potice moja familija. Znam da ovaj dzemper nece biti po svacijem ukusu ali ja ga licno obozavam jer je unikatan za danasnje trziste, gde svi nosimo uglavnom istu odecu. A naravno lepo je i videti tradiciju koju svaka drazava i region sveta imaju, a koji na zalost postepeno gube na vaznosti. Razlike u kulturama i tadicijama, itd ne sluze da nas razdvajaju vec da obogacuju sve sfere nasih zivota, od mode, hrane, umetnosti, itd. Da li se slazete? Cao!

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

Pants Zara, jacket Zara, sneakers Forever21, bag unknown (Winners), dress unknown (similar), ankle boots PrettyLittleThings

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…

All Pink in Cinque Terre - Beautiful Italian Coast

Ribbon bow unknown (similar on Ebay), sweater H&M, sneakers Forever 21, handbag Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM, sunglasses unknown
Hello lovelies! It’s been a while since I shared my last post. As you may know, I’m expecting twins in early August and so far my pregnancy has not been an easy one. Babies are doing very well but momma is exhausted 😊. I apologize for gaps between my posts.
Now is better time then every to share more about my trip through Italy. You may be planning your next European trip for the summer so stay tuned for more to come. Last I shared with you a post about a lake town Riva Del Garda. Today, I’m sharing one of the cutest places you will encounter in Italy. I’m talking about Cinque Terre. It’s a region of 5 small fishing towns on a rugged Italian coastline, in the north of the country. They used to be very isolated by their geography, but today numerous tourists come to visit.  You may notice resemblance to Positano in the south of Italy, only these 5 towns a…

Black & White Striped Forever 21 Dress & Aldo Shoes

Hello lovelies. I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Hopefully, those of you who are moms got to be pampered and spoiled by your kids and partners. I hope you also showed your love to your moms and thanked them for everything they have done for you. We should be doing it every day, but it’s really nice to have a day dedicated to these amazing women. I know how much my mother means to me and she certainly deserves every day to be dedicated just to her. I’m sure all of you feel the same way about your mothers too. Even the sun came out to shine and make Mother’s day even more special. I made sure to go bare legged to welcome the warmth and the sun. Today’s outfit is a cute spring look, easy to pull off. Black and white stripes always make a statement and a little pop of colour just makes the outfit complete. I spent the day out mostly and o…
