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:)

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…

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…
