SUMMER INSPIRED


Happy weekend guys!
Have i ever told you that i used to hate summer some years ago. I know it sounds pretty crazy, like who hates summer, and beach and laying on the sun, well i used to be one of that people.

Through all my senior years in primary school, i had problems with weight and i was overweight, not much, but enough to feel uncomfortable in my skin, and to feel body shamed. I used to cover it with layers and layers of clothes and i found that like a great way to hide. I was wearing baggy clothes and really did not want to hang around with people, just wanted to hide far away.
Summers were the worst fear for me, and while my friends were on the beach with slim bikini bodies i was sitting home, thinking about future and blaming myself, and all i wanted is to love that reflection in the mirror.
But, one day, when i finished primary school,  everything changed and i decided to change my unhealthy habits, start to workout and feel happy again. I lost  weight with my own workout regime, twice a day in my bedroom that summer and i was new person when i started high school that autumn, i was confident and could wear anything i wanted, dresses, slim clothes.

I was so extreme in that desire to look good and feel good and this is the main reason i made it. I could give up, and eat and hide, but what would i got with it. Just ask yourself that when you are tired of everything and want to give up, where that giving up takes you, surely not to a better yourself.

I am the biggest critic to myself, and i am not happy all the time with myself, i do not find myself perfect, who can even be perfect, but i think that everbody should try to be the best version and work on themselves.

The point of this story and the reason i  wanted to share with you, is because, i know that there is so many teen people who have same struggle, and i know it is hard when you can not even look yourself in the mirror, but if you want to be happy with yourself, you should make a strong decision and make a difference, set a goal and go for it, even if it is hard, do not give up. I made it in my desire to feel happy in my skin, and i know you can make it too!




MNE: 

Zdravo svima, nadam se da uživate u vikendu!
Jesam li vam ikada rekla da sam mrzjela ljeto, da dobro ste čuli, ko uopšte može da mrzi sunce, plažu, more, pa da, ja sam bila jedna od tih osoba.

Dok sam pohadjala 7 i 8 razred osnovne škole, imala sam višak kilograma, iako to nije bilo previše, meni je bilo dovoljno da se osjećam loše i nezadovoljno sobom.   Sve sam to pokušavala da sakrijem sa slojevima i slojevima odjeće, nijesam željela da se družim sa društvom, jednostavno željela sam da se sakrijem od svih.
Svaki ljeto je bilo nešto  najgore za mene, jer dok su svi moji vršnjaci išli na more, ja sam dane provodila kod kuće, misleći na budućnost i kritikujući sama sebe, a sve što sam željela je da volim taj odraz u ogledalu.

Ali jednog dana, nakon što sam završila osnovnu školu, odlučila sam se da sve promijenim. Smršala sam, pridržavajući se svoga režima vježbi, dva puta na dan, u mojoj sobi toga ljeta, i kada sam na jesen krenula u srednju školu, bila sam nova osoba, puna samopouzdanja, i mogla sam da obučem sve ono što sam željela.

Bila sam toliko ekstremna u toj želji da izlgedam dobro i da se osjećam dobro, i to je glavni razlog zbog kojeg sam uspjela. Mogla sam da odustanem, da nastavim da se hranim nezdravo, i da se sakrijem, ali gdje bih došla sa tim. Samo se zapitajte svaki put kada ste umorni od svega i želite da odustanete, gdje vas to vodi, sigurno ne boljoj verziji sebe.

Ja sam svoj najveći kritičar i nikada nijesam zadovoljna sa sobom, nijesam savršena, ali ko je savršen, ali ipak mislim da svi treba da pokušaju da budu najbolja verzija sebe i da rade na sebi.

Poenta ove priče i razlog zašto sam je podijelila sa vama je zato jer znam da postoji dosta tinejdžera koji imaju iste ili slične probleme, i znam da je to teško  kada ne možete da pogledate sebe u ogledalu, ali treba da jako odlučite, postavite sebi cilj i da težite da ga postignete, iako je teško, ne odustajte.
Ja sam uspjela u svojoj želji da se osjećam dobro u sopstvenoj koži, i znam da i vi to možete!

                                             ABOUT THE LOOK

This is my favourite kind of look for summer. light dress, comfortable shoes and a big bag.
I definitely needed grey striped off shoulder dress in my wardrobe, i imagined it is going to be perfect for my holiday and walk by the beach with a little tan on. Also  i find it very easy to style, you do not need any special detail to combine with it, maybe little silk scarf and off-shoulder trend is still very popular. Grey is one of the colours i like,  and after so many white pieces that i wore lately, i needed little change.

I paired it with this lace-up flats, and this old beige bag. Even though i like smaller, crossbody bags, sometimes you need a huge one to pack all necessary and unnecessary stuff.


MNE:  Ovo je moja omiljena kombinacija za ljeto, lagana haljina, udobne baletanke i ogromna torba.
Mom ormaru je trebala jedna ovakva haljina, zamislila sam je kao dobar izbor za moj odmor, i šetnju kraj plaže sa preplanulim tenom. Takođe jednostavna je za stilizovanje, gotovo da vam ne treba ništa specijalno da sa njom nosite, možda svilena marama a i ovaj trend je još uvijek popularan.

Siva je boja koju volim, i nakon dosta bijelih komada koje sam nosila, trebalo mi je nešto novo za promjenu.
Odlučila sam da je ukombinujem sa ovim baletankama na vezivanje, i  iako volim manje torbe,ovaj put sam izabrala ovu bež, veliku u koju mogu stati sve potrebne i nepotrebne stvari.

  1. Slažem se da bi trebalo postaviti samom sebi ciljeve za napredak i ne odustajati od njih, ali samo ako želimo time da unapredimo sebe i osećamo se bolje, a ne da bismo udovoljavali drugima, jer to nikad nije moguće. Jedino možemo usrećiti sebe. :D

  14. I think I was one of those people who hate summer. I love the warmth, but the beach isn't my favourite place to be unless there is a lot of shade. I love your shoes, so gorgeous.

  15. Beautiful look. My favorite part of this are the golden heels of your shoes, they give nice luxurious touch to the look. I would have combined the heels and the dress with some gold jewelry details to add some more gold. Though it sure look good as the way it is! :)
