Outfit post (casual) / Odjevna objava (ležerno)






hat: no name, scarf: a gift, bag: borsa, coat: Tally Weijl, jeans: gift, shoes: neosens





There was a time in my life when I refused to wear jeans. I banished them from my closet and wore only skirts and dresses (and suit trousers). That phase lasted for a year or two. Nowadays, I love my jeans and casual outfits. However, I  think that this 'no jeans' phase was ultimately beneficial for me as it helped me develop my own personal style. Furthermore, it made me try new things, look at clothes from another perspective. Jeans can be great but it is easy for them to become a sort of uniform for everyday. Sometimes limitations can be really liberating. Sometimes all we have to do is to break our routine a little bit.

Postojalo je vrijeme kada sam odbijala nositi traperice. Izbacila sam ih iz ormara i nosila samo suknje i haljine ( i hlače od odjela). Ta je faza trajala godinu ili dvije. Danas, volim svoje traperice i ležerne odjevne kombinacija. Ipak mislim da je ta  faza 'bez traperica' bila korisna za mene po pitanju razvijanje osobnog stila. Navela me da isprobam nove stvari, gledam na odjeću iz neke nove perspektive. Traperice mogu biti sjajne, ali lako postaju neka vrsta uniforme za svaki dan. Ponekad ograničenja mogu biti jako oslobađajuća. Ponekad je sve što trebamo malo razbiti rutinu.

  1. You are BACK, yay! Good to see you posting again, Ivana, hope your weekend went well. I love jeans, don't think I can be without them however, I am a little tired of wearing them constantly for winter. I also love skirt however, I have never been a dress person. Maybe I'm still traumatized by the fact my mother loves to dress me in the most ridiculer princess dresses when I was younger. LOL!

    1. my mother tried that but failed...I liked wearings skirts as a kid but styled in a more tomboy fashion. She always talks about how I ruined her lifelong dreams of having a cute baby girl you can dress anyway you like:)

  4. Thinking about it after I read your post - yes, the same is true for me! Don't wear jeans at the moment, no idea why..... so I have to think more about my outfits. Merit of the blog, maybe.
    Love that you wear that kind of cap, I have some but no courage to put them on....will think of you as soon as it becomes colder and do it!!! :)))

  6. That hat is adorable and you are so lovely! I wear jeans quite often but I am not a big fan of them in fashion. They are sort of like putting mud tires on a sports car, useful, sure, sturdy, sure, but fashion? Maybe :)

    1. I know what you mean...I think we all get bored of seeing them (perhaps more bored of seeing them than of actually wearing them).

  21. It is true jeans can easily become a uniform and that's because they are so easy to style and i guess i have an obsession. I should try it one day. Meanwhile, you look gorgeous and warm in your outfit :)). Beautiful post.

  22. Dear Ivana, how good that you finally came back to the jeans as you can wear them in the best possible way! But I can imagine that you are right that the time in your life without jeans helped you indeed to develop your personal style - which I really like as far as your outfit of today. Hopefully it is not too cold in your region at the moment, at least I see here that you have the stuff to keep you warm :)

  26. Ja se sećam kako smo u srednjoj školi svi masovno nosili farmerke pa i danas je to nešto što najviše viđam na ljudima. Ja ih jako volim ali sam takođe odlučila da dam šansu i drugoj odeći i naravno, nisam pogrešila! ;)
    Mnogo mi se sviđa torba, baš je divna žuta nijansa a poslednja slika mi je <3 :)

  29. Slažem se sa svime što si napisala. Ja se u srednjoj nisam skidala iz traperica i nisam ni znala što bih nosila da nisu postojale iste. s vremenom sam ih potpuno izbacila jer su mi bile nekako dosadnjikave. Sada, od kada su se pojavile boyfriend modeli - opet ih obožavam i samo bi u njima hodala. Zvučati se smiješno, ali ništa mi ne bude toliko sexy kao žena u prevelikim trapkama i štiklama! :)
    Torbica ti je odlična kao i kapica i preslatko ti stoji! Zadnja fotkica je <3

    1. danas stvarno imamo sreće jer postoji toliko raznovrsnih krojeva traperica na raspolaganju, prije smo bili puno više ograničeni, a opet sam stalno visila u njima:)

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 



AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.
