Wearing black and white, but feeling blue.



I wore this outfit a day before Christmas. I think I was inspired by an all white outfit that I saw Idu (from fashionably Idu) wear. I thought to myself, why not wear something white myself? I remembered this vintage skirt that used to be too big for me, but since I gained weight, it fits just perfectly. Anyhow, I came up with this (predominately) black and white look. It was a nice enough outfit, the only problem was that I was too hot. Yes, it was about 16 degrees in Mostar. In fact, that is the reason why my coat isn't buttoned up on most of these photos- I'm not the type to unbutton my coat just to show what I'm wearing underneath. My low tolerance to cold is legendary. However, the Winter has been very mild lately. I probably wouldn't have been cold even if I didn't wear a coat. I might have mentioned that I celebrated Christmas in Mostar, as I usually do.  Yesterday I went to Split but I returned to Mostar earlier today. I'm a bit tired, so I'll keep this post short.  Tomorrow I might return to my chatty self.

Ovu sam kombinaciju nosila na Badnji dan. Mislim da me nadahnula potpuno bijela kombinacija koju je nosila Idu ( sa bloga fashionably Idu). Rekla sam si, zašto ne bi i ja nosila nešto bijelo? Sjetila sam se ove vintage suknje koja mi je bila prevelika, ali otkako sam se udebljala, sasvim mi je dobra veličina. Uglavnom, tako je ispala  ova (pretežno) crno bijela kombinacija. Bila je skroz u redu, samo je problem bio što mi je bilo prevruće. Da, vruće jer je u Mostaru je bilo oko 16 stupnjeva. To je razlog zašto mi na većini fotografija nije zakopčan kaput. Nisam tip koji bi otkopčao kaput samo da se vidi što nosim ispod jer imam jako nisku toleranciju na niske temperature. No, ova zima je zasada jako blaga. Vjerojatno mi ne bi bilo hladno čak i da nisam nosila kaput.  Božić sam (kao što sam vjerojatno i napisala) slavila u Mostaru, jučer sam išla za Split, a danas sam se već vratila, tako da sam umorna i neću duljiti. Sutra se možda raspišem.

  3. Dear Ivana, it looks like summer in Mostar! Wow, the sky is so blue and 16 degrees is really warm! Here in Bavaria it is neither very cold and fortunately often warm enough to forego socks :) You got a great inspiration through Idu, I really love the white skirt and how you combined it!
    Hopefully you had wonderful Christmas!

  17. Dear Ivana, I loved the outfit, black and white and a pop of color are always great colors to combine! Loved the coat, the top, the skirt and boots and the bag is lovely! You look very beautiful and full of stile! I am like you, I am not someone who opens the coat to show what's underneath if it's cold. But sometimes, when it's warmer, I do. I remember the photos I shared in February and March this year, on 2 long trips and my coats were always closed - only the scarves showed :) But that's fine, we don't want to catch a cold :) But I liked that you showed your top, cause it's lovely! I hope you have an amazing new year's eve and 2017 - may you do what you like, paint, show Mostar and Split, and share outfits - do what you love and we will love that as well! Many hugs!

  18. Baš sam pre koji minut bila kod Idu na blogu i rekla joj koliko volim belu zimi :) Definitivno ste me obe inspirisale da joj dam prednost ovih dana :) Mnogo mi se sviđa kombinacija sunkje i rolke, deluje kao da je haljina u pitanju. Baš je ušuškano, udobno, a opet elegantno :) Znači ni kod tebe nema zime. Što se mene tiče, može da potraje ovako. Samo se nadam da neće onda naglo zahladiti kad se približi proleće... Nadam se da si došla k sebi :)

  23. Mi smo ovdje isto uživali par dana na suncu, ali je jučer popodne zapuhala bura i odmah druga priča - totalno smrzavanje :) iako ću uvijek rađe birati to umjesto dosadne kiše...Ova kombinacija mi je baš prava zimsko blagdanska, super te za promjenu malo vidjeti i u bijelom, sviđa mi se suknja! :)

  24. Hi Ivana! :) I wish that here, in Poland was the same sunny weather as in Mostar, here where I live, there was no snow at all, but everyday you can feel very frezzing air, so warm jackets or coat are must-haves ;) What about your post, sorry to hear that you feel a little bit tired, I think that most of us feel the same way after Christmas ;) Moreover, I love your black and white outfit, you look really stylish in this timeless combination of colors, dear :)

    I wish you an amazing NYE and happy New Year, dear Ivana!

  27. You look lovely! I also have a low tolerance to cold and I get fed up of wearing so many layers in Winter! I prefer the warmer months :) Happy New Year Ivana! :) xx

  28. Prelepo izgledaš! Suknja je božanstvena, veoma ženstvena i to u divnoj beloj boji. Šal je sjajan dodatak, a i torba je veoma interesantna.
    Wow, 16 stepeni, pa maltene proleće! Divota prava!

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.

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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
