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.

HOW TO STYLE A YELLOW BLAZER WITH DAD SNEAKERS FOR SPRING?

My outfit proposal of the day is a casual one. I feel that not too long ago a blazer worn with jeans wouldn't have been exactly my first choice, especially paired with dad's sneakers, but times are changing. One of fun things about trends is that they can make you step outside of your comfort zone a little bit. Obviously, we shouldn't follow trends just for the sake of following them, but often they can give us inspiration. I certainly like to look at them that way, as a source of inspiration. Fashion moves in circles, so playing up with trends doesn't really have to cost anything, especially if you have already mastered shopping your own closet. The athletic sneaker trend is certainly a tempting one. It's hard to say not to the comfy sneakers trend, especially when you enjoy hiking and strolling around as much as I do. Most people do have an ugly sneaker in their closet. It is possibly the most comfortable option out there, so why not try styling it for every day…

HOW TO WEAR DRESSES WITH SNEAKERS FOR SPRING & SUMMER?

If there is one outfit that screams spring and summer for me, it's dresses worn with sneakers. Naturally, dresses and sandals is another lovely pairing, but sneakers also have many benefits. From being orthopedic (not all of them but still) to being appropriate for all kind of terrains, there is no denying that sneakers are practical. You can take them anywhere, from a rock beach to a sandy one. You can pair them fun socks or tights for those days it's still not warm enough. Long story short, they do make for a lovely choice in this season. What are your thoughts? Do you like to wear sneakers in spring and summer? My last post was about styling dad sneakers with jeans and a blazer, and today I'll show you some of my favourite sneaker and dress combinations. If you ask me, the answer to the question can I wear dresses with sneakers is - yes, you absolutely can.

HOW TO WEAR A DENIM SKIRT (WITH A BLAZER) FOR SPRING?

I often write about shopping one's closet on this little blog of mine. Not only is shopping our closet  a sustainable thing to do, it also helps us to get to know our closet. How can you really know your wardrobe options if you don't style and wear your clothes? The potential of every clothing item increases with a bit of tender love and care (TLC). One of the things I love about shopping one's closet is the opportunity to create stories with our clothing items. When we care about a clothing item, we're more likely to take good care of it and that can help make us more environmentally conscious. Most people could really benefit from learning how to take better care of their clothes, that's for sure. We live in an era of 'wear it then throw it'. This consumerist approach is what makes fashion industry such a horrible polluter. We can all help to change that with our every day choices. Good news is that we can all help it in a variety of ways. From buying vi…
