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 :)

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.

30+ OUTFIT IDEAS WITH A SHORTER BLACK COAT

What is more classical than a black coat? If there is an autumn/winter outwear essential, that's definitely the black coat. Most of you probably own at least one and many of you own several of them. I own only two and they differ only in length. Both of them are double breasted but one is longer than the other. I have had both of them for ages and I do enjoy styling them.  For this post, I'll focus on my shorter black coat.  I'll show you 30+ ways to wear this black coat for autumn/winter.  

If you're looking for inspiration for styling your black coat, you have come to the right place. I have worn this coat in so many ways. One of the things I like about it is how easy it is to style. It looks great both with neutral and colourful outfits, casual and classy ones. It just looks good with everything! I bought this coat years ago and if my photo records are correct, I wore it more than 40 times (taken that this coat costed only 25 euros, that's zero cost per wear). …

AUTUMN OUTFIT PROPOSAL: A LILAC SWEATER, JEANS AND HIGH HEELED BOOTS

Autumns often translates as: sweater weather. We all know sweaters are a cozy and comfortable choice when the weather isn't so warm anymore. It is hardly surprising that such a comfortable and practical choice as sweaters continues to remain popular (especially in the holiday season). Can sweaters also make us good look? Yes, they can! Absolutely! It is all about finding the right cut and shade for your skin tone and body shape as well as wearing it correctly. As with every clothing item out there, it is all about finding what works for you. I do believe that it is possible to be stylish, chic and feminine in the colder months. In fact, layering opens up many styling possibilities. 
HOW TO MAKE AN OUTFIT FEATURING JEANS AND A SWEATER MORE FEMININE?  Don't worry about a sweater making you look bulkier. There are always ways to work around that. I'm always amazed by what a difference a pair of heels makes. Take this outfit, for an example. It is all about comfort. I'm we…
