Rainy days/ Kišni dani


 In the grey colour of time,
there is a thing, 

in the rain, in the wind, in the shadows,
there is a thing, 
in the grey colour of time,

its name I do not know.  *

poem by Croatian poet Miroslav Slavko Mađar. 

 This is what I wore yesterday, an appropriate outfit for a cold, rainy and windy day.  I like to contradict the grayness of the rainy days with some colour. Do you think it is a good idea? What about you?  Do rainy days make you feel melancholic? What kind of outfit can improve your mood?


U sivoj boji vremena 
ima jedna stvar,

u kiši, u vjetru, u sjenama,
ima jedna stvar,
u sivoj boji vremena.

Ne znam joj imena. *
pjesma Miroslava Slavka Mađara

Ovo je što sam nosila jučer, prikladna odjeća za hladan, kišan i vjetrovit dan. Volim proturječiti sivilu kišnih dana sa bojama. Što vi kažete? Mislite li da je to dobra ideja? Čine li vas kišni dani melankoničnim? Što nosite za popravljanje raspoloženja? 


  1. To tell the truth, rain irritates me, but it may be full of romanticism at the same time. It's really nice to stay at home, have a cup of hot tea, read on of the most favourite books or to bake a tasty pie, while listening the sound of rain drops. However, when I have to go somewhere, rain is annoying!
    I've got to say I love those beautiful snapshots you have shared and a pleasing poem! The grass and plants are still so green and fresh over there, I even envious of you a bit:)

    1. Thank you...and I often appreciate the beauty of rainy days...but sometimes I do miss the sunny days.

  2. I love the mixing colors dear... I really do, your color sweater is amazing... Now I´m sick and here is so hot, that I can´t even rest, is horrible =(

  3. It was an really good idea that you wore bright colours on this rainy day, they make the day fresh and bright. I like it to do the same. To be honest weather doesn´t really influence my mood, and there are even some rainy days which I really like because than I can stay at home (what I also like) and do enjoying things, like reading and writing. And the view outside the window confirms me only how comfy it is at home.

    Nevertheless my husband and I took our daily walk, equal how the weather is, and we use simply at rainy days our umbrella :)

    Wish you a happy weekend with the perfect weather for you!

    1. I like to walk when it's raining as well...that's what umbrellas are for, right?...and then being home, nice and cozy, while it is raining is also very nice.

  4. Pa da, potpuno se slažemo kad su kiša i vedre boje u pitanju :) Baš mi se sviđa, originalno i efektno ;)

  5. I like that sweater and I hope you have a nice weekend.

  6. Although I do admire the places you present in your blog.I really appreciate rainy days.
    Before spring ,before holidays,before May.....
    With love

  7. Meni to sve zavisi od raspolozenja, ali da budem iskrena, ja volim kisu
    I svidja mi se dzemper :)

  8. Jako orginalan look i jako mi se svidja kombinacija boja! Mene uvijek ta kisa nekako rastuzi :( Volim je je jedino ako sam ja u krevetu ispod tople dekice sto je gotovo nikada :-)

  9. Colour in greyness is a great idea! I really like your sweater, your channeling a 60's vibe, xoxo.

  10. Hello Ivana,

    i wished i could be with you under this umbrella...;-)

    You wear a lots of (different) colours - i think a need sunglasses...;-) very colourful.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
