I always wanted to try wear a floral crown and with the help of right placement on some of these photographs it looks like I am even if in reality the only thing I'm rocking are boxer braids. One of the reasons why I'm fascinated by floral crowns (and braids for that matter) is that they are a part of European folklore. I love studying folklore, it is such a fascinating field. I always wanted to wear one of those beautiful folklore floral crowns. In this case, however, the floral crown effect was almost accidental. 'Don't move!', he said and I had no idea why until I took a look at these photographs. 'See, it looks like you're wearing a floral crown' he said. Imaginary floral crown, but a very pretty one. Beats those Snapchat filters for sure. These images were actually taken back in January. These Japanese almond trees blossomed as early as January. It was on the news and everything, almond trees blossoming in January. I didn't want to share these images before because I didn't want to rub in it to those of you who live in colder climates. However, we had our share of cold this March. Right now the regular almond, peach and all kind of trees are blossoming as well, so it is seems like an appropriate time to share these.
Once again, I'm wearing an outfit suitable for cold weather. I layered a turtleneck under a sweater dress and wore a pair of flare jeans. I have this theory, basically I believe that flare jeans make our legs feel warmer because they create a quasi vacuum of warm air. When we wear flare jeans with boots, it's like having a double protection against the cold. That's my theory anyway. I'm not sure if there is a scientific basis for it. Anyhow, this was a very warm outfit, just what it takes to feel comfy during these cold Winter days.
Let's talk about my addiction to pointy shoes
Hello, my name is Ivana and I'm a pointed shoes addict. I've always loved pointed shoes. Here I'm wearing a pair of pointed boots with high heels (you can't see it because I paired them with flares but you can take a look at this old post). Pointy shoes are one of the trends for Spring/Summer 2018 and nobody is more happy than me. I can't wait to style my pointy boots with spring outfits. Do you like pointy shoes?
Today I kept seeing flowers everywhere, bouquets are literally being sold at every corner and it made me so happy to see that. A nice reminder of what tomorrow brings. Tomorrow is International Women's Day, so don't forget to do something nice for women in your life, even if it is a simple thank you note or taking a second to call them and congratulate them. Do you celebrate International Women's Day? Where I'm from, it is a big deal, there is a lot of celebrating going on. I love this celebration because I believe we have a lot to celebrate. Us ladies can be pretty amazing. Are you looking forward to tomorrow? Do you have a special tradition?
