Summer for me often translates as one thing: colour...abudance of colour. What about you? What do you think about colourful outfits in the summer? For me it is as I've said all about colour. Sure I love the all white look and even all black look ( in the evening naturally for the Mediterranean sun doesn't allow it any other way) but for me summer has always been a time to relax a little and mix and mismatch a lot. One more thing I must stress out when it comes to summer: the jewelry. I love to wear jewelry in the summer even if it is a little impractical sometimes (because of the heat and the sweating) but there are ways to do it and just like with clothes we can find what works best for us.

The woman I have depicted is wearing a big red statement necklace and some kind of red vest or kimono (made from silk preferably). The other colours are yellow and blue (which I think look gorgeous together) and I intentionally didn't draw out the entire outfit...so maybe she is wearing a midi and maybe a maxi (both would be a good choice I would say).

This all thinking about summer thing made me remember one particular summer. It was when me and my friend (and neighbour) both started high school. That summer we sew all kinds of things together (very clumsily) and had a blast. I just remember how much fun we had ripping our jeans and sewing buttons onto our tees. We thought we were so innovative and imagined everyone was paying attention but in fact we were like most adolescent. Still, those were fun times.

Ljeto za mene često znači jednu stvar: boja...obilje boje...Što vi kažete? Što mislite o šarenim ljetnim odjevnim kombinacija. Za mene je se sve kao što sam rekla vrti oko boje. Istina volim skroz bijele ili skroz crne odjevne kombinacije ( crne samo navečer jer bi uz Mediteransko sunce sve drugo bila ludost) ali za mene je ljeto uvijek bilo vrijeme za opustiti se i nositi otkačene pa i ne usklađene stvari. Još jedna stvar koju moram naglasiti je nakit. Volim nositi nakit ljeti čak i ako je ponekad malo nepraktično (zbog vrućine i znojenja) ali sve se može izvesti i kao s odjećom moramo samo pronaći što nam najbolje odgovara.

Žena koju sam nacrtala nosi upečatljivu crvenu ogrlicu i neku vrstu crvenog prsluka ili kimona (od svile po mogućnosti). Druge boje su žuta i plava (za koje mislim da super idu skupa) i namjerno nisam nacrtala odjeću u potpunosti...možda ona nosi suknju do gležnjeva, a možda i  dugu...(mislim da bi oboje lijepo izgledalo).

Ovo razmišljanje o ljetu navelo me da se posjetim jednog određenog ljeta. Bilo je to kad sam sa svojom 'susidom' krenula u srednju školu. Tog ljeta šivale smo razno razne stvari (i to jako nespretno), ali svakako je bilo zabavno. Sjećam se kako nas je zabavljalo kidati rebatinke (hr. traperice) i ušivati botune (hr. dugmad)  na naše majice. Mislile smo da smo jako novatorske (da to je stvarna riječ,, nisam je izmislila) i da svi obraćaju pozornost na nas,  a zapravo smo bile kao većina adolescenata. Ipak, bila su to dobra vremena.

  11. How wonderful that you remember these times! I think such things are necessary if one is young and I think a lot of people indeed looked at you :) For me summer is also connected with colours although I made already the experience that in the end of summer I more often wear not the as bright colours as I normally wear ... don't know why. But at the moment I would love to wear a look like you have painted, as it seems to be so fresh and as this look brings good mood!

  15. Isti slučaj! Obožavam i boje i nakit leti. Nakit zna da smeta ali nekako baš kad nosimo manje odeće se mnogo više ističe i uklapa. Crtež je presavršen! ;)

    1. Da, točno tako...i meni nekako nakit ljeti više upada u oči:) divno mi je vidjeti nakit i na plaži mada je pomalo nepraktično, ali nekako mi je baš glamurozno ukombinirati neki lijepi kupaći s upečatljivim nakitom.

  16. I don't know what to say, I know it's summer, but I have no desire to wear something bright. I'm feeling myself comfortable only in black, white and beige colors now.
    By the way, that sketch is very pretty, you are true to yourself!

    1. It is important that we wear what we feel best in...so if you don't feel like wearing something vibrant and bright, no need to do it just because summer is here...and besides one cannot really go wrong with black and white or beige....these colours are timeless and always very elegant.

      I'm glad you like the sketch...I rather like this one myself...I feel like I have drawn an actual person (though it is not someone I know).

      as always thank you for your comments:)

ONE MORE REASON TO VISIT BLIDINJE: MOUNTAIN CHURCHES

In my last post, I explained why nature park Blidinje is more than worthy of a visit. If you ask me, Bosnia and Herzegovina is such an underrated destination, for it hides so many stunning natural oasis and hidden gems. This nature park is one of them. Within the park itself, there is so much to see and do. Today I'll show you (once again) the mountain Church of Saint Elias The Prophet. Moreover, there is another church in this nature park I need to bring to your attention. That would be the church of Virgin Mary of the Snow (located in vicinity of Blidinje lake).

Nel mio ultimo post, ho parlato di Blidinje e vi ho spiegato perché il parco naturale Blidinje merita una visita.Secondo me, la Bosnia ed Erzegovina è una destinazione molto sottovalutata, perché qui potete trovate tante meravigliose oase naturale.Questo parco naturale è uno di questi posti bellissimi.All'interno del parco Blidinje, c'è tanto da vedere e da fare.Oggi vi mostrerò (ancora una volta) la chiesa di m…

WHAT TO WEAR FOR HIKING IN SUMMER? GORANCI VILLAGE & PLANINICA HILL

Today I'm back with another hiking outfit. Hiking in summer feels like an obvious choice, perhaps because we don't have to worry about the weather as much. The warm temperatures are luring us in the open. One thing I love about hiking is how it allows you to set your own pace. As a chronically ill person, that's very important to me. Living with an immune disease can be really tricky because you might feel fine one day and be unable to get out of the bed the next. Even the doctors themselves do not understand immune illnesses completely and nobody knows for sure what is causing them. All we seem to know is that immune illnesses are turning into an epidemic. Even living with them doesn't make them seem any less mysterious. The unpredictability of these illnesses makes planning regular work outs complicated. Hiking is a form of exercise that you can do even when you're not in top shape. So, I can be an appropriate form of exercise for most of us. What do you think?
