What to wear in Summer? Sometimes simplicity is the beast answer. / Što nositi ljeti? Ponekad je jednostavnost najbolje rješenje.


Maxi skirt in the Summer? How predictable! Well, sometimes basic items can feel pretty darn good. Printed tshirt and a maxi suknja paired with sandals, it doesn't get more basic than that. Simple outfit that almost feels like a casual uniform. I wore this outfit when I went to hear a Cambridge choir perform in our local church in Mostar. They sang beautifully. Now, I'm in Split, suffering from insomnia and feling mighty tired. I'm trying to tell myself that the Summer has only started (afterall I only spent 3 hours on the beach in total ) but I know it is not so. It is not you Summer, it's me. 

Duga suknja ljeti? Kako predvidljivo! Ponekad jednostavne stvari mogu biti izvor sreće. Majica s printom i duga suknja nošene s sandalama, to su nekakve osnove osnova. Jednostavna kombinacija koja je gotovo kao ležerna uniforma. Nosila sam ovu kombinaciju kada sam išla slušati izvedbu zbora iz Cambridge u našoj lokalnoj crkvi u Mostaru. Divno su pjevali. Sada sam u Splitu, patim od nesanice i osjećam se grozno umorno. Pokušavam si reći da je ljeto tek počelo (provela sam sama tri sata u komadu na plaži dosada), ali znam da nije tako. Nije krivo ljeto, kriva sam ja.

  12. Nadam se da ćeš se ubrzo naspavati... zna se to nekada dogoditi... ja sam imala taj problem u srednjoj i bilo je strašno... nikome ne bih poželjela... nadam se da te ne muče neke brige i da će sve ubro doći na svoje!
    Kombinacija je jako lijepa, Ivana nam je sva u bijelom i jako ti lijepo stoji! Suknja je odlična! Ja nisam nešto luda za maksi suknjama na sebi, volim ih uvijek vidjeti na drugima jer su prekrasne! Pusa

  13. I just wore a maxi skirt while having dinner with my in-laws yesterday. LOL! I have never tried pairing a basic tee with maxi skirt though but it looks really good on you, Ivana.

    Sorry to hear that you're suffering insomnia, I know that feeling. I had 3 weeks of insomnia when the season changed and Summer arrived, it was horrid.

  20. Nadam se da će nesanica ubrzo nestati, mene to zna uloviti kad se ful nerviram oko nečega ili sam pod velikim stresom (iskreno se nadam da kod tebe to nije slučaj) i onda mi je ta muka sa snom nešto najgore na svijetu.

    Volim ovakve jednostavne ljetne kombinacije, u biti samo takve me i zanimaju na plus 30 stupnjeva i stvarno si super stoje boromine (rekla sam to već, ali nema veze)! Drži se, uživaj u Splitu i držim fige da se spavanje ćim prije vrati u normalu!

  28. Hey Ivana, how are you dear? Actually I see that you're fantastic and that you're feeling better, right? I'm happy about that ;)

    Summer escapades, wii! They are always necessary in order to disconnect with the world to find ourselves and pampering. Love that you're always exploring places, no matter if they are close or far, your adventure spirit is always craving for more and thanks to that we're able to know more fantastic places around the globe ! :D

    Now talking about WHAT TO WEAR IN SUMMER umm... difficult question in my opinion, I'm still suffering a lot and summer is just starting, but with this weather and the humidity is difficult to pick something! Even tho your skirt seems like a smart option for the weather and for traveling: comfortable without leaving chic behind ;)

    Regards and hope you enjoy this week!

  42. Da se nadovežem na onu temu o umoru, ja sam shvatila kako meni leto na nekom nesvesnom nivou uopšte ne prija. I dalje ga volim ali nekako već poslednjih godina me svake sezone snađe nešto. Sećam se da je prošlog leta bila u pitanju užasna nesanica i strašna hiperaktivnost koja me je poptuno iscedila. U svakom slučaju, nadam se da si se makar malo naspavala u međuvremenu.
    Da se vratim lepšim temama, mislim da i sama znaš koliko volim haljine i sunkje naksi dužine, a ovako svakodnevno su mi takve sunje i majice zaista uniforma jer nema nekog velikog razmišljanja oko njih, a udobne su i prikladne za sve. Tvoja suknja je baš lepa i baš bi mi lepo došla tako neka plisirana :D Divna si od glave do pete i sama bih vrlo rado nosila sve kao i ti :)

  44. Hello Ivana! I totally agree with you that basic clothes are terrific choices for the question: "what to wear today?" and I really like how you styled your maxi skirt (which in my opinion isn't as much predictable as you thought, it's really lovely!) :D What's more, sounds like you spent great time listening that choir, I'm sure that it was great performance :) What's more sorry to hear about your insomnia, dear, hope that everything will back to normality soon, Ivana! :)

  61. Soon as I read that first paragraph even without seeing the pictures I thought 'a printed tee and maxi skirt paired with sandals would feel pretty darn good. Comfy too. Not to mention mighty chic. Then I scrolled down and you sure do look comfy and chic.

    Your pleated maxi skirt is so pretty. I came upon a similar one in my web travels today but I'm not exceeding my shopping budget for the month so I passed.

    Must have been nice to watch the choir. I used to be in my church choir a couple years ago not because I could sing that good but I was giving a gift of my time . Hilarious!
    You are definitely better than me cos I haven't even made it over to the beach yet and school is about to be back in session.

    Your church is beautiful and so is Split. It has a peaceful air about it and the canal appears quite calming. If I lived there, I'd probably hang out there often.

    I hope you've managed to catch up on sleep. Have a very restful weekend Ivana.

  62. I agree with you hun, sometimes simple outfits are just the best! :) I always like to keep things simple myself, I'm honestly not great when it comes to fashion and don't usually spend more than two minutes putting my outfit together, haha. So simple and lovely outfits such as this one are definitely right up my alley! <3 I take it the summer over there has been pretty hot? We've finally had some sunshine in the UK for a change, although they're saying it's going to be a month of rain and thunderstorms now, eep! x x x

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…
