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:)

HOW TO STYLE A METALLIC DRESS FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…

EARLY SPRING OUTFIT FOR A DAY SPENT STROLLING THE MOSTAR CITY

Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges. 
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays  as intensely bec…

HOW TO STYLE A BATH ROBE COAT FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
