How to wear a summer dress in Autumn? Kako nositi ljetnu haljinu u jesen?


The first thing I really took notice of in Mostar city, back in the day, when I arrived to study here, were these trees. I'm still fascinated by them. If you want to know the story about them, you can read it one of my old blog posts (here.)

Kada sam stigla u Mostar na studij , prva stvar koja mi je zaista upala u oči bila su ova stabla. Još uvijek me oduševljavaju. Želite li znati njihovu priču, možete je pročitati u jednoj od mojih starijih objava (ovdje.)

I'm quite satisfied with the fact that I managed to style this cherry dress (here) for Autumn. Isn't it great when we manage to transfer a summer clothing item into our wardrobe for other seasons? I often see it as a fun challange. So, my answer to the question 'how to wear a summer dress in Autumn?' would be, 'wear a blazer over it, add a folklore bag and put on biker boots'. That way you will be embracing the folklore trend. In addition, biker boots make everything look cool.

Poprilično sam zadovoljna s činjenicom da sam uspjela stilizirati ovu haljinu na trešnje (ovdje) i ove jeseni. Zar nije odličan osjećaj kada uspijemo prebaciti neki ljetni odjevni komad  u našu garderobu za druga godišnja doba? Meni je to često zabavan izazov. Moj odgovor na pitanje, "kako nositi ljetnu haljinu u jesen" , bio bi : "nosite sako preko, dodajte folklornu torbu i obujte motorističke čizme. Na taj način ćete prihvatiti folklorni trend, a uz bajkerske čizme sve bolje izgleda.

  15. Really great look! I love it. Adding a blazer is a great way to wear summer dresses in autumn. I like to wear a jacket or cardigan and a scarf with summer dresses in the fall so it's nice and cosy. :D

    1. thank you dear:) Adding a blazer is a great way to do this, I totally agree and when it is a bit cooler it is even better to wear a jacket or a cardi (or even a coat).

  29. Znaš koliko mi se dopada ta haljinica, a činjenica da može da se nosi i jesen jerdodatni plus. Još si uklopila ražličite stilove u jednoj kombinaciji a to nije uvek lako. Baš je pun pogodak i ovakva topla jesen je zapravo idealna za slojevito i maštovito oblačenje :) Lokacija je takođe divna <3

  32. Lijepo odijelo! Haljina je vrlo lijep i torba također. Što je ruka posao? Kad sam bila dijete, moj otac kupio sličan torbu za mene na odmoru u Hrvatsku, koji je tkani. Imate također tkani svoj torba?
    Želim ti ugodan vikend!

    1. hvala. Ručni rad znači kada se nešto radi ručno, a ne tvornički...ne mora nužno značiti da se radilo isključivo rukom već da je osoba, a ne stroj napravila glavninu posla. Ova torba je tkana, napravila ju je i meni poklonila moja pokojna baka. Ovakav tip folklorne torbe jako je čest u hrvatskim nošnjama. Morala bih provjeriti koje sve nošnje imaju ovaj tip torbe, ali puno ljudi iz različitih dijelova Hrvatske i BIH mi je reklo da je baš takva torba dio njihove nošnje.

  33. I really like your idea how to wear summer dress on the autumnal period, becauce adding blazer in vivid and bright color makes your dress just perfect for beautifull and sunny day on the Fall, dear Ivana ;) Personally I also wearing clothes, which are more suitable for the summer on the colder month, because they still look good with combo with cozy sweater or jacket :) Have a great evening, Ivana :)

    I like layering my dresses and trying to wear them year-round as much as possible. I guess it's easy to do here as it doesn't snow or anything, it's quite warm in Queensland. Even if it feels cold to me!

    I like the red blazer with the red print on the dress :)

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
