Fashion illustration of the day / Modna ilustracija dana 7.10.2016.

Hi there! How NOT to stay fit during Autumn? That should be my topic today because it seems that I'm doing a good job out of it. It turns out that all my talk about enjoying long Autumn walks was just that- only talk. I’ve been planning to spent as much time outdoors as possible (because I truly adore this time of the year), but somehow everything got in my way and I totally forgot about that decision/intention. I don’t think that rain is to blame, even if it didn’t exactly help. It all culminated this afternoon, when I went to buy some bread and I ended up being short of breath. How is it even possible to get out of shape in a few days? Maybe it is this cold I can’t shake of. I’m pretty sure I was in a fine (well decent) shape a few days ago. However, ever since it has started raining, I’ve been spenting even more time than usual reading and studying ( I'm not yet ready to stare what I'm studying, something new for me). Add working on some new exciting drawing projects to the mixture (plus a bit of blogging-always!) and voila- you get one Ivana out of shape. I suppose we can’t have it all. Sometimes the price for happy fingers is unhappy spine. Right now, after drawing for straight two hours my fingers are pretty content, but my spine is not thanking me…I think it is time I go out for a walk. Anyhow, this is not one of the drawings I was working on today, but you'll get to see those soon enough. I draw this girl a few days ago. I quite like how she turned out. I’ll let you know what happened with that walk and .....did I manage to finally tear myself away from the computer screen/notebook/sketchbook/The Golden Compass (that’s a book I’m currently reading)?

Zdravo svima! Kako ne ostati u formi tijekom jeseni? To bi mi trebala biti tema jer mi to očito dobro ide. Ispada da je je sva moja priča o uživanju u dugim jesenjim šetnjama bila upravo to- samo priča. Planirala sam provoditi što više vremena vani (jer stvarno volim ovo doba godine), ali nekako mi je sve stalo na put i skroz zaboravila sam sam tu odluku/namjeru. Mislim da nije kriva kiša, iako nije baš pomogla. Sve je kulminiralo ovoga popodnevna kada sam išla kupiti kruh i ostala bez zraka. Kako je uopće moguće ispasti iz forme u par dana? Možda je to ova prehlada koje se ne mogu riješiti. Koliko znam, bila sam u pristojnoj formi prije nekoliko dana.  No, otkada je počela kiša, provodim još više vremena čitajući i učeći  (nisam još spremna podijeliti što to učim, nešto novo za mene). Dodajte tomu rad na nekim novim uzbudljivim projektima crtanja (uz malo bloga-uvijek!) i eto Ivane koja nije u formi.Valjda ne možemo imati sve. Nekad je cijena za sretne prste- nesretna leđa. Sada, nakon što sam puna dva sata crtala, moji prsti su jako zadovoljni, ali leđa mi ne zahvaljuju...mislim da je vrijeme da odem u šetnju. Uglavnom, ovo nije jedan od crteža na koji sam radila danas, ali vidjet ćete i te uskoro. Nacrtala sam ovu djevojku prije nekoliko dana. Sviđa mi se kako je ispala. Javit ću vam što se dogodilo sa šetnjom i jesam li se uspjela otrgnuti (konačno) od kompjuterskoga ekrana/ bilježnice/ papira za skiciranje /Zlatnoga kompasa ( to je ono što trenutno čitam)?

  3. Don't worry Ivana, if it took just a few days for your body to feel unhappy with not moving around enough, it'll take just a few to reverse the damage! I've no doubt you'll be feeling fabulous after a fast Autumnal walk or two :) These illustrations are very 'summery' and yet thanks to the mustard-coloured top, they seem sort of fitting with the season as well! Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Dear Ivana, I'm convinced you are still very well in shape and you are only to hard to yourself :) I know you are used to walk a lot! Hopefully now your cold has gone away and nothing is able to stop you from walking! Personally I know I'm not always in the same shape ... there are days I can walk miles and miles without feeling any burden and there are days I don't feel I'm in very good condition :) And I see your drawing skills are still very well in shape as you produced again a wonderful illustration!

  5. Don't you be silly, you are slim and fit! And talking about getting fit, I have been slacking about my yoga this week too, only practised twice instead of my usual 4-5 times this week. Sigh...

  14. Joooj ne spominji leđa, ja zadnja dva tjedna samo sjedim po čitav dan za kompjutorom pa se onda s laptopom prebacim na krevet u malo udobniji položaj kad osjetim da se raspadam i tako u krug. Eto, nisi jedina kojoj je aktivnost spletom okolnosti pala u drugi plan...a ne mogu ti opisati koliko sam sretna što imam Fridu zbog koje dvaput dnevno napravim dugačku šetnju, spašava me! :)

    Jedva čekam čuti što to novog učiš i divna ti je ilustracija, baš mi je lijepo vidjeti malo i radove s bojicama za promjenu! :)

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.

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

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…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

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. Scroll down to see and read more. 



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.

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

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 …
