Share in style: Japanese inspiration / Japansko nadahnuće












Time for another Share in Style. This time the theme is Japanese inspiration. Can you see it in my outfit? I'm wearing a dark blue shirt that I absolutely love because it's 100% cotton and has really long sleeves that fit even my monkey arms. The collar on this blue shirt is what we would call  a Russian collar but isn't it similar to traditional Japanese collar? The second  item that is inspired by Japan is this lovely white vintage jacket that I hand pained myself. When I think of Japan, I think of beautiful hand-painted clothing items so perhaps that's where the inspiration for this jacket originally came from. 

This outfit would look  much better without a coat but I was not feeling that great this morning hence I didn't want to take any changes. It took two pain killers, lots of herbal tea and lavender  oil inhalation just to get me out of the bed. Over the shirt and under the white jacket and coat, I wore a green dress with a lovely floral print that also reminds me of Japan but at this point that may be just the power of self suggestion. These wonderful and very comfortable boots are from Peko and they are a proof that I haven't completely ignored the sales. The bag is a traditional Croatian folklore bag, handmade by my late grandmother. 

Vrijeme za još jedan Share in Style. Ovoga  puta tema je Japansko nadahnuće. (bolje bi bilo reći nadahnuće Japanom, ali poštovati ću naziv na engleskom.) Možete li ga vidjeti u mojoj odjevnoj kombinaciji? Nosim tamno plavu košulju koju obožavam jer je skroz pamučna i ima jako duge rukave koji pristaju čak i mojim majmunskim rukama. Ovratnik na ovoj plavoj košulji je ono što bismo nazvali ruskom ovratkim (kragnom/koletom), ali zar nije zapravo sličan tradicionalnom japanskom? Drugi odjevni predmet nadahnut Japanom je ova divna bijela vintage jakna koju sam sama oslikala. Kada razmišljam o Japanu, mislim na prelijepe ručno oslikane odjevne komade pa eto otkuda možda i nadahnuće.

Ova bi kombinacija bolje izgledala bez kaputa, ali nisam se baš sjajno osjećala ovog jutra pa mi se nije dalo riskirati. Samo da ustanem iz kreveta trebale su mi dvije tablete za bolove, puno biljnog čaja i inhalacija lavendinim uljem. Preko košulje i ispod jakne i kaputa, nosila sam zelenu haljinu sa cvjetnim uzorkom koji me podsjeća na Japan, no to bi već mogla biti i moć sugestije. Udobne i divne čizme su iz Peka( dokaz da nisam potpuno ignorirala rasprodaje), a torba je folklorna hrvatska koju je izradila za mene moja pokojna baka.

  15. First things first: I'm sorry to hear that you weren't feeling well, and I hope you're much much better now. Although, getting out of bed was definitely worth it. How overwhelmingly beautiful is the scenerey?? Just WOW!!! And last but not least the jacket...the painting is so pretty and goes perfectly with the Japanese scheme!

  19. Uh, kad su takvi dani u pitanju, ne volim da izlazim ako ne moram, ali nekad je ustvari bolje praviti se da nije ništa a i svež vazduh i promena okoline uvek dobro dođu. Nadam se da si bolje...
    Sve si tako divno iskombinovala i tako suptilno uvrstila te japanske detalje. Čizme su savšrene, baš nekako bezvremenske i idu uz sve :)

  34. Dear Ivana, I hope you feel already better and your treatment worked in the end! But there is nothing to see that you didn't feel so good on the pictures as you are look really really beautiful in your by Japan inspired look. You painted the jacket by yourself? And I can imagine that you are really happy that your blouse fits you even with long enough sleeves. Wish you a happy and especially healthy rest of the week!

HOW TO WEAR THE SCARF TREND FOR SPRING? 4 BASIC WAYS

Are you ready to jump on board the scarf trend? My outfit proposal is all about the foulard. I matched my outfit with the colours of the foulard I was wearing, opting to wear a red blazer, a black pair of cord jeans and a blue turtleneck. It is a simple and comfy styling that made me feel quite chic. It is always good to have an outfit formula to fall back one for those days you don't have much time. One of the easiest ways to elongate your figure is by opting for a pair of high waist jeans and a cropped blazer (or jacket). If you wear a pair of heels with this combo, you'll appear even taller. Not saying that anyone should do that, but if you want to elongate your look, this is a simple and easy way to do it. Blazers and wide cut pants are always a chic combo, and a scarf will add something to every outfit. 




ACCESSORIZING WITH SCARVES
A great thing about a scarf is that it is an accessory that can be worn in a number of ways. I've prepared a little visual guide for you t…

TOP CROATIAN DESTINATIONS: TROGIR CITY (PART 1)

Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…

LAYERING A RED MIDI DRESS WITH RUFFLED SLEEVES FOR SPRING

Good evening lovelies! I've got a couple outfit proposals to share we you. The 'star' of this post is a red midi dress with statement sleeves  I bought last summer. I typically don't do impulse buys, but when I tried on this dress I knew it had to be mine. Have you ever heard of that rule that you shouldn't buy an item if you can't think of at least five ways to wear it? Well, that's a great rule but I decided this dress was worth the buy even if it wasn't the most versatile item. However, now it seems I can think of a five ways to wear it.  Where there is a will there is a way. When I tried this dress on again, I realized that I'll be able to layer it for spring. It needn't be only a summer dress.
1. WITH A VINTAGE HAND PAINTED BLAZER Romantic soul that I am, I simply can't resist a dress that has ruffles. This one has statement sleeves with both ruffles and tassels. It is precisely because of its ruffled statement sleeves that I doubted t…
