You can keep your smile on....Možeš zadržati osmijeh....


No make up. Rainy and gloomy day. Even the ducks seemed depressed and not sociable as usual. Lots of layers. Nothing glam about this outfit. Yet I remember how happy I felt that day. I was so full of joy even if there wasn't a particular reason to smile about.  Maybe it was because I realized  there is always something to smile about. Life as such is a gift. A precious gift. Often we forget it. We forget what a blessing it is simply to be alive and to have someone to share it with. Welcome May! I'm not going to complain about the rain or the sudden drop in temperature, because it doesn't really bother me. After the rain, there always comes the sun. I wish you all a fantastic May!

Bez šminke. Kišovit i tmuran dan. Čak su se i patke činile depresivnima i napustila ih je njihova druželjubivost. Puno slojeva. Ništa nema glam kada je u pitanju ova kombinacija. Ipak se sjećam kako sam sretna bila toga dana, ispunjena radošću iako nije postojao neki poseban razlog za osmijeh. Možda zato jer sam shvatila da uvijek postoji razlog za osmijeh. Život kao takav je dar. Dragocjen dan. Često to zaboravljamo. Zaboravimo kakav je blagoslov jednostavno biti živ i moći to podijeliti s nekim. Dobrodošao svibnju! Neću se žaliti na kišu ili nagli pad temperature, jer mi iskreno i ne smeta. Želim vam svima divan svibanj!

  1. Aw, I really like what you said in the opening paragraph! :) Life is a precious gift, and it is too easy for us to forget about it on a daily basis when we just carry on with our busy lives, getting annoyed and sad about tiny things that in the grand scheme of things, don't really matter. There is always something to smile about! I really like the little saying that says, 'Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day'. :) <3 Really loving the photos as always, the outfit looks super warm and comfy! The illustration is beautiful also, something about it feels just so carefree. :) Hope you're having a fantastic weekend so far, hun! Kisses. x

  11. You look radiantly beautiful and no need for makeup to achieve that! I love the soft colours in your painting, and I love the warmth and radiance (yes I keep using that word) of the photos. Thank you for visiting my Buddhism blog post and leaving a comment. I have been struggling to blog or visit blogs or comment (perhaps obvious) but I want to get back to you now and say that I agree with you about the essential message of Buddhism. Be your best self, most compassionate self, forget religion and just keep finding your way to love.

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.

HOW TO STYLE A YELLOW BLAZER WITH DAD SNEAKERS FOR SPRING?

My outfit proposal of the day is a casual one. I feel that not too long ago a blazer worn with jeans wouldn't have been exactly my first choice, especially paired with dad's sneakers, but times are changing. One of fun things about trends is that they can make you step outside of your comfort zone a little bit. Obviously, we shouldn't follow trends just for the sake of following them, but often they can give us inspiration. I certainly like to look at them that way, as a source of inspiration. Fashion moves in circles, so playing up with trends doesn't really have to cost anything, especially if you have already mastered shopping your own closet. The athletic sneaker trend is certainly a tempting one. It's hard to say not to the comfy sneakers trend, especially when you enjoy hiking and strolling around as much as I do. Most people do have an ugly sneaker in their closet. It is possibly the most comfortable option out there, so why not try styling it for every day…

HOW TO WEAR DRESSES WITH SNEAKERS FOR SPRING & SUMMER?

If there is one outfit that screams spring and summer for me, it's dresses worn with sneakers. Naturally, dresses and sandals is another lovely pairing, but sneakers also have many benefits. From being orthopedic (not all of them but still) to being appropriate for all kind of terrains, there is no denying that sneakers are practical. You can take them anywhere, from a rock beach to a sandy one. You can pair them fun socks or tights for those days it's still not warm enough. Long story short, they do make for a lovely choice in this season. What are your thoughts? Do you like to wear sneakers in spring and summer? My last post was about styling dad sneakers with jeans and a blazer, and today I'll show you some of my favourite sneaker and dress combinations. If you ask me, the answer to the question can I wear dresses with sneakers is - yes, you absolutely can.

HOW TO WEAR A DENIM SKIRT (WITH A BLAZER) FOR SPRING?

I often write about shopping one's closet on this little blog of mine. Not only is shopping our closet  a sustainable thing to do, it also helps us to get to know our closet. How can you really know your wardrobe options if you don't style and wear your clothes? The potential of every clothing item increases with a bit of tender love and care (TLC). One of the things I love about shopping one's closet is the opportunity to create stories with our clothing items. When we care about a clothing item, we're more likely to take good care of it and that can help make us more environmentally conscious. Most people could really benefit from learning how to take better care of their clothes, that's for sure. We live in an era of 'wear it then throw it'. This consumerist approach is what makes fashion industry such a horrible polluter. We can all help to change that with our every day choices. Good news is that we can all help it in a variety of ways. From buying vi…
