ruffles and flower print (outfit post) / volani i cvjetni uzorak (odjevna kombinacija)


Ruffles are one of the spring trends that I really like. I don't wear them often and to be honest I think ruffles can be a bit tricky to combine (or perhaps I just need additional practice). When this trend is concerned, a little goes a long way I would say. Ruffles create volume so you might want to be careful with that. The trick I think is to have them in the right places (peplum dress being the ideal example).

When I think of ruffles, I get this idea of femininity in my head...just like when I think about floral print. So when I saw (last spring) this shirt  that combines the two I had to have it. The rest of the outfit I had kept pretty simple with minimal jewellery (wedding ring, watch and tiny earrings). This skirt is very practical and I like the length.  It can also be worn lower on the waist but if you ask me a high waist is a women's best friend.

This is the first time this year that my legs are bare and I have to say it is funny to see them this pale. I've often hear women complaining they cannot wear skirts because they're legs are white...but how will you get your legs tanned if you don't expose them to the sun? My advice is don't wait for the summer. If you like skirts and dresses, by all means wear them in the spring.


....and if you're wondering where the photos were taken (you know I like to travel), the answer is Medjugorje (Bosnia and Herzegovina). I was there this morning so that is where the photos were taken. xoxo

Volani...što mislite o njima?  To je jedan od proljetnih trendova koji mi se stvarno sviđa, ali ponekad nisam sigurna kako ih nositi. Kad su volani u pitanju, možda je manje više. Mislim da je ključno nositi ih na pravim mjestima. Volani dodaju volumen, pa sa njima nekada treba biti oprezan. Svi mi želimo volumen na pravim mjestima, zar ne? Zato je na svakome da odabere kako će nositi volane (i naposljetku hoće li ih nositi.)

Ova košulja cvjetnog uzorka koju sam danas nosila dosta je upečatljiva, a i volani su baš izraženi tako da sam se pri izboru ostatka odjeće i modnih dodataka oslanjala na jednostavnost. Crne cipele i torba, jako malo nakita (vera,sat i male naušnice). Ova jednostavna prljavoroza suknja mi je jako draga,  a može se nositi i niže (na kukovima). No ako se mene pita, visoki struk je najbolji prijatelj svake žene. 

Proljeće je u zraku, a ja sam prvi put ove godine golih nogu. Malo mi se noge čine bjedunjavima, ali što se može? Često sam čula žene i djevojke kako se žale da ne mogu nositi suknje i haljine jer su im noge bijele. Kako misle pocrniti ako su stalno u hlačama? Moj savjet je nosite suknje i haljine (ako vam se sviđaju naravno) pa ćete dobiti boju po nogama. Kome se sad da čekati ljeto i plažu? 

...i ako se pitate gdje sam, jutros sam bila u Međugorju pa sam se tamo i slikala. pozdrav!

  1. Pa ti si stalno negdje :)
    Meni je još malo prerano za skidanje iz dugih hlača, ali nemam problema s tim što su mi noge bijele...mogu biti po cijele dane na plaži i neću pocrniti kao neki, uvijek sam ovako svijetla (osim ako ne pocrvenim haha)

  4. Thanks for your interesting comment about layering, it will really be too hot to make use of this trend, but maybe when working with light cloths you can do it nevertheless, just as you said :)

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
