Fashion illustration of the day/ Modna ilustracija dana (Vorrei che ritornasse presto un altro lunedì)
A new week. A new month. Who knows what it means? Who knows what it will bring? I have no idea and sometimes that is not such a bad thing. I have tons of plans and desires. At times too much inspiration can be distracting. When I end up feeling a bit disoriented, I remind myself to take it one day at the time. That's what I will do and hence I can only tell you what you will see on blog today and that is another painting, once again a watercolour painting. There are a few more of them coming out. This one is a more artistic take on a fashion illustration. It was painted on the same day as the last two fashion illustrations I shared (here and here), so back in October but the choice of colours was very much influenced by Autumn. My significant other immediately recognized my inspiration behind this piece (one faux fur scarf I have in my closet since forever).
Novi tjedan. Novi mjesec. Tko zna što to sve znači? Tko zna što će donijeti? Nemam pojma i ponekad to i nije loše stvar. Imam hrpu planova i želja, a ponekad previše inspiracije može odvući pažnju. Kada se osjećam dizorjentirano, podsjetim se uzeti dan za dan. To ću i napraviti i zato vam mogu reći što ćete vidjeti na blogu danas, a to je još jedna slika, ponovo akvarel. Ima i još nekoliko koje uskoro stižu. Ova je malo više umjetnička verzija modne ilustracije, a naslikana je isti dan kao i ove dvije (ovdje i ovdje), dakle u rujnu ali već pod utjecajem jesenjih boja. Moja druga polovica je odmah prepoznala inspiraciju iza ovih slika, a to je jedan šal od umjetnog krzna koji imam već dugo).

You know what? I don't hate Mondays anymore, I suppose I heard that 'Sabato' song by Jovanotti often enough to change my mind about the value of Saturday. Turns out one can have too much of the good thing. One of the main problems in Europe is, metaphorically speaking, the lack of Mondays for the young, meaning in fact- the lack of work and work opportunities for the younger generations. As Jovanotti puts it, I wish that another Monday would return promptly ( vorrei che ritonarsse presto un altro lunedi). I guess it is up to us to create our own Mondays. Don't let apathy take over you! Pursue things you're passionate about and consistent about it. Develop you inner stoic, you will need it to face life's difficulties. Remember that life is not just about dramatic decisions, sometimes it is the little things that matter, there are many advantages to being consistent, it can help you in many aspects of your life. As cliche as it might sound, hard work on something you care deeply about pays off - at least in one way: you get to feel better about yourself, and that's quite an accomplishment in itself for some of us. That would be all for today. Happy Monday!
Znate li što? Više ne mrzim ponedjeljke, pretpostavljam da sam dovoljno često čula onu Jovanottijevu pjesmu Sabato da bi promijenila mišljenje o vrijednosti subote. Ispada da i od viška boli glava. Jedan od glavnih problema u Europi je ,metaforički rečeno, manjak ponedjeljaka, a to zapravo znači manjak posla i poslovnih prilika za mlađe generacije. Kao što bi rekao Jovanotti, želim da se brzo vrati drugi (još jedan) ponedjeljak (vorrei che ritonarsse presto un altro lunedi). Mislim da je na nama preostalo da sami stvorimo svoj ponedjeljak. Nemojte da vas obuzme apatija! Idite za stvarima do kojih vam je stalo i budite dosljedni. Razvijte u sebi sposobnost da stoički podnesete životne nedaće jer će vam to trebati. Sjetite se da poanta života nisu samo neke dramatičke odluke, ponekad su male stvari te koje vrijede, a postoje brojne prednosti dosljednosti...u brojnim aspektima života. Koliko god to može zvučati kao klišej, naporan rad na načemu do čega nam je stalo se isplati- barem na jedan način osjećamo se bolje u pogledu nas samih, a za neke od nas to je pravo postignuće. To bilo sve za danas. Ugodan dan vam želim!
As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas. A bit of formal wear inspiration for my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that. That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…
Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art.

AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.
RED AND GREEN
Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …
HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …
