Shoes are boring, wear sneakers (outfit post/ odjevna kombinacija)

'Shoes are boring, wear sneakers', instructs the ad for converse sneakers. Point taken. I've worn sneakers quite often this summer and I plan to continue doing so. I've never actually bough a pair of converse sneakers but I've had plenty lookalikes over the years. I guess I just don't feel like spending more than 5 euros on a pair of sneakers made from denim. Sorry. ( I'd much rather buy a few more books to add to my home library.)

Anyhow, wearing sneakers only makes sense. Not only are they comfortable but they have been fashionable for a while now (as you all undoubtedly know). In the summer they're very suited for those long walks and as it is still summer in Croatia and it will be until the end of this month (minus a few rainy days now and then) I say yes to sneakers! 

This outfit  was granny approved. You see my grandmother said I should wear short dresses and skirts more often...and when they say old people are old-fashioned:) they really don't know what they're talking about. As for the location, it's my parents house( bay Torac, island Hvar.) They rent it every summer, if you want to check it out go here.

"Cipele su dosadne, nosite tenisice", upućuje nas oglas za starke (zapravo nisam to trebala ni prevoditi jer odavno su gotovo svi oglasi u hrvatskoj na engleskom jer zašto cjeniti svoj jezik?) Složila sam se sa tom logikom i često nosila tenisice ovoga ljeta. Zapravo nikad nisam kupila starke, ali sam tijekom godina imala dosta sličnih. Valjda mi se ne da davati više od četrdesetak kuna na tenisice od jeansa, radije bi kupila još jednu knjigz za kućnu knjižnicu. 

No, nošenje tenisica (koje ja doduše uvijek zovem patike) doista ima smisla. Ne samo da su udobne, nego su već poduže i jako moderne (kao što sigurno znate). Ljeti su jako pogodne za duge šetnje, a u Hrvatskoj je još uvijek ljeto i biti će do kraja mjeseca (uz par kišnih i vjetrovitih dana) pa ja kažem da tenisicama.

Odjevnu kombinaciju je odobrila baka. Rekla je da bi trebala češće nositi kraće suknje/haljine...a onda kažu da su stari ljudi staromodni:) nemaju pojma:) Što se tiče lokacije- uvala Torac, otok Hvar...moji  iznamljuju apartman svako ljeto, gore je link ako želite tamo ljetovati.


  1. The dress is lovely, my Grandmother said I should wear more skirts and dresses too lol, xoxo.

  2. Love this dress, the whole look is gorgeous as are the pictures :)

  3. Adorable, Ivana!

    Happy Blogging,


    ps. New post - Balance Blog life with Real Life

  4. Que guapa!!! Me encanta el look Sporty chic que nos muestras, genial!!!

  5. The photographs are very beautiful, I'm always impressed by the location and places which you demonstrate here at your blog. "Granny approved outfit" sounds really sweet:))))) If my point of view has any meaning, I'd say I approve this outfit too:) I love the way this dress looks on you and the shady hat makes the whole outfit looks complete:) As for sneakers, I'm not the biggest fan of such kind of footwear, but at least one pair should be available in the wardrobe of any girl. I'm just the same, I don't like buying expensive or brand stuff, I'd better buy a new book or anything else, more useful.
    Such a great post turned out, I enjoyed it very much! Take care, Ivana!

    1. it seems we're much alike dear Alexandra:) Thank you so much for your comment<3

  6. You look stunning Ivana! Your granny is right, you have killer-legs, no need to hide them. What a gorgeous view and spot.

  7. The sneakers really rock the outfit! Awesome!

  8. You look marvellous doll!! Sometimes sneakers are the only thing to wear when you want to go on an adventure. I wore jelly shoes even on a walk and my feet were killing me and I didn't enjoy myself so much, as soon as I put my sneakers on, I was in heaven, haha. Gorgeous legs too :))) xx

  9. Kada se baka slaže :) Da, moram priznati da i sama pomalo "ludim" kada se neki pojmovi ne prevode ili ne izgovaraju u duhu hrvatskog jezika! I g. Milanović nam govori GDP pa što očekivati... a tek kada vidim "Zagreb Film festival" ili tako nešto... i onda se od djece očekuje da nauče deklinirati... :)
    I sama koristim neke strane riječi ukoliko ne znam hrvatsku istoznačnicu, pogotovo u ovom "našem modnom" svijetu ali se poslovno uvijek služim hrvatskim riječima te iste maksimalno propagiram! :)
    Kombinacija je odlična! Noge su ti genijalne, ali to sam ti već par puta pisala :)

    1. ja se isto živciram oko takvih stvari, ali opet se donekle prilagođavam i sama tomu, jer opet mislim da bi me ljudi čudno gledali da kažem npr. pošalji mi epoštom:) iako mi je ta složenica baš zanimljiva.

      Hvala na komentaru<3

  10. Baka je potpuno u pravu! Takve noge ne treba kriti ;) Mislim da već znaš da i ja volim patike iliti tenisice (tako mi je cool ta reč :D) uz suknjice i haljine tako da sam i više nego odupevljena kombinacijom. Još taj damski šešir savršeno odgovara celoj priči. A tek morska pozadina, bez komentara! Prelepo!

  11. Mi piace l'abbinamento abito/sneakers!

  12. Predivno mjesto i ti si predivna. Ja sam uvijek za patike, zbog udobnosti, pošto puuuno volim hodati.. :)

    1. hodanje mi je često jedina tjelovježba, zato ga nastojim što više prakticirati...

  13. Haha, your granny reminded me of mine, she used to say the same! I'm also so glad that sneakers are in fashion now, and you can wear them with anything. The view is breathtaking!

  14. nice sunshine pics my dear. but unfortunately i dont like converse sneakers at all. besides clogs and flip flops, converse sneakers are the kind of shoes i never would wear. I can not say why, but i find this pair aof shoes just ugly - sorry for that!!!

    BUT your dress and hat are just stunning!!!

    1. it is ok, I appreciate your honest comment.
      My husband also hates this type of sneakers:)

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. 

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…
