What was I thinking? (outfit post)/ Što mi je bilo? ( odjevna objava)











dress/haljina: no name, sandale/ sandals: Peko, bag/torba : second hand (vintage), watch/sat: vintage

What was I thinking? In my defense, this outfit looked much better in my head. I've worn this floral dress a number of times and you must have noticed it for it was featured quite often on this blog. Not surprisingly, I wanted to try something new, something other that pairing it with another pair of heels. I mean doesn't the pink shade of these leggings match the pink floral print on this dress perfectly or what?  Yet, somehow it just doesn't work. That's my impression after seeing these photographs anyway. Maybe I'm also influenced by the fact that something bad happened on this seemingly innocent April day. What are your thoughts on this one?  Is this outfit a big no...or is it ok?

Što mi je bilo? U mojoj glavi ova je odjevna kombinacija izgledala sasvim pristojno, samo ću to reći u svoju obranu. Nosila sam ovu cvjetnu haljinicu puno puta, često je bila i na blogu i sigurno ste je primijetili. Nije iznenađujuće da sam htjela probati nešto novo, nešto same promjene cipela na petu. Roza nijansa gega (tajica) odlično se slaže s rozim cvjetovima na haljini zar ne? No, opet nešto nije kako treba. Barem je takav moj dojam kada pogledam ove fotografije, a možda je utjecalo na mene i to što mi se svašta nešto loše izdogađalo tog naizgled nevinog i sunčanog travanjskog dana. Što vi kažete? Da ili ne ovome?

  2. Da!
    Možda torbica u nekoj drugoj svijetlijoj nijansi, da sve bude u skladu s prirodom i živosti koja nas sad iščekuje van domova, ali super ti je kombinacija! :)


    PS. ja sam isto iz Splita :D

  4. I think you look adorable, outfit and hair. Of course I am a fan of your beautiful legs in those bright leggings. That is the type of thing I enjoy so much :) The dress and leggings work great together to me. So sorry for whatever challenge you encountered that day. Such a shame as you look so happy here. Hope all is well sweet lady!

  7. Ja moram priznati da mi roze tajice uopće ne smetaju na ovu kombinaciju :) Da mogu birati, rađe bi bez njih ali ne izgledaju uopće loše! :)

    1. mislim da je možda haljina malo preduga za njih, ova je malo veći broj pa mi je sve skupa malo šlapavo, ali ova roza boja mi se sviđa, morat ću smisliti neki drugi način da ih nosim.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with this outfit, on the contrary, those leggings go amazingly with your dress!!! I love the whole look AND how you.did your hair!!x

  14. Možda su helanke ipak višak iako mi se najiskrenije dopada ceo utisak koji ostavlja kombinacija. To je ono kad se sve slaže ali nešto ne štima :) U svakom slučaju, imala sam i ja takve kombinacije, haljina i helanke pa onda još patike na sve to, ali to se nosilo pre 10-ak godina pa kao nema veze :D

  15. Ivana you look really pretty! Definitely love the way you paired that floral dress with the heels!

  16. I really like the combination of the dress and leggings together, and how you've done your hair! :)

    The only thing that I might change would be the shoes - maybe ones without an ankle strap, like some pretty flats, as you have the line of the leggings and the line of the strap together. But honestly, I'm only saying that as you said there was something you didn't like and that's the only thing I could guess - it's a nice outfit! :)

  18. I think the outfit is absolutely fine Ivana. Ideal for a summers day. It looks nice and cool, though possibly needs flatter shoes depending on where you are walking...?

    If I am honest, I much prefer this kind of look to 'boyfriend' jeans.

  19. The dress is gorgeous, and I give the outfit a cute yes! Perhaps if you let your hair down, it would look even nicer!

  20. Kombinacija je sasvim ok, meni se dopada kako ti stoji. Ali ako ti nije dobar osecaj onda-skidaj helanke. Imam pun orman stvari koje cekaju godinama da ih iskombinujem sa necim pa da kombinacija bude idealna, jer mi sada nije dobar osecaj.

  23. I remember this beautiful dress! And I understand your wish to try some new variants to wear it. Dressing is about experimenting too, isn't it? I think these legging are fine with the dress, they are of such a nice bright colour and they make the dress look different, exactly what you wanted. The only thing, I would wear different shoes here, flats...maybe of sporty type. Then I think the look would be even more interesting.

  24. Love this beautiful outfit combo, Ivana, the dress is pretty and you wear it beautifully. The pink leggings are just like the cherry on top. I dunno why you think it didn't work, because this is one of your best so far, girl. It's girly, it's hot, it's chic and it's totally summer and it's YOU!

  26. I think the pink works very well with the pink flowers. I also don't think it's not bad, it works, and I'm not just saying it because, you know, I'm commenting. I wouldn't have commented if I didn't like it. I think leggings add a bit of a sporty chic to the outfit. The shoes...maybe I'd chosen a pair of Converse or flats )) That's about it. Take care, Ivana!

  29. E po naslovu sam sad očekivala neku totalnu strahotu, kad ono...sasvim simpatično :) Ja bi vjerojatno izbacila tajice jer je haljina baš lijepa i stvarno joj ništa ne treba, ali mi ovako svejedno ne smeta. Iako jako dobro znam taj osjećaj kad si u nečemu i ne osjećaš se dobro i imaš dojam da nešto ne štima, a zapravo ne znaš što.

    1. stvarno mi nešto ne štima, možda bi uz čizmice neke ili visoke patike možda čak i mogle proći gege, ali uz ove sandale ne ide nikako.

  32. Vidiš meni se baš sviđa kombinacija :) Možda bi bilo još bolje da je haljinica malo kraća pa da bude ono kao tunika, ali da ne filozofiram sad puno, meni je baš simpa outfit. Promijenila bih jedino torbicu jer mi je malo 'preteška' za ovu lepršavost i boje.

  33. sorry my dear, but i think this outfit is way over the top.
    you know i love leggings like you do, but this one is a big "NO". Why? Just the colour. i think this pink colour is just to loud. This oufit is ok on a 80 years motto-party, but for the public - i would say: no.

    Bye.

A GRACE KARIN DRESS: VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT PROPOSAL

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…

INSPIRED BY.....NATALIA LIALINA

Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

FASHION ILLUSTRATION: ZUHAIR MURAD'S BLUE GOWN FROM 2019 COUTURE COLLECTION

Hello, darlings! I'm back two fashion illustration of one Zuhair Murad dress. This blue gown is so beautiful I simply had to illustrate it twice. It makes me think of the sea, the mermaids and basically the good old 'day at the beach' vibes. There is something so liberating about spending time by the ocean, isn't there? I grew up in a coastal town, and I do miss the sea terribly. However, that is surely not the only reason why I loved this dress so much. You know, when I think Zuhair Murad the first thing that comes to my mind is- haute couture. I feel he is one of those designers who were simply meant to make couture. Do you know what I mean? Murad's designs are always so exquisite, glam and elegant. I do like his ready-to-wear collections, but there is just something about his haute couture collections that makes them stand out in the sea of others. 
 I already illustrated a dress by this designer (here), and with the fashion week on its way, I opted for somethi…
