How to wear a leather jacket in a feminine way? Kako nositi kožnu jaknu na ženstven način?


 EN Does it ever happen to you that you overthink things? I've been doing that a lot lately, so today I'm going to try to slow down my thinking process a bit. While I was trying to decide what painting ti post about today, an idea came to my mind- why not do a simple outfit post instead? For the record, I still enjoy outfit posts, it is just that something other thins take over. You don't seem to mind that my blog has taken a turn towards my personal art, so all is good. Today I'll show you an outfit that is my answer to the question: 'How to wear a leather jacket in a feminine way?'

However, let's get back to the topic of overthinking and worrying for a second. Why do we do it? Perhaps because it gives us a feeling that we're in control. Is it true? No, it's just an illusion. Overthinking doesn't solve anything. Often life just flies by and we realize that we didn't make the most out of what we had because we took it for granted. There is always something we can take advantage of to lift our spirits, something we can enjoy and feel grateful for. Be it a beautiful sunny day, a trusted book or a new opportunity of some sort. We should never take anything for granted. Every second is valuable. Every moment is unique. 

Simple pleasures. Wearing an outfit that feels right at that moment. Wearing something we like.  If there is such a thing as comfort food, there has to be such a thing as  comfort clothing. Don't we all have at least one comfort clothing item in our wardrobe? Vintage leather jacket. A green dress that I can never get tired of paired with a sweater that has been one of the most worn items in my closet this winter. A nice mix of styles. A pair of pink heels with a box (it doesn't get more feminine than that, right?) paired with a leather jacket that used to be my husbands. He wore it before I was born. Funny, ha? Time flies....and maybe that is not such a tragedy. At least we're not bored, right?

HR Dogodi li vas se ikad da previše razmišljate o svemu? Ja to stalno radim u zadnje vrijeme, tako da ću danas pokušati malo usporiti razmišljanje. Dok sam danas razmišljala o tome o kojoj slici pisati palo mi je nešto drugo na pamet....Zašto ne bih jednostavno objavila neku odjevnu kombinaciju? Da se zna, još uvijek uživam u njima, samo što ponekad neke druge stvari preuzumu, a i vama nije krivo što mi je blog odlutao u tom umjetničkom pravcu tako da sve štima. Danas ću vam pokazati kombinaciju koja je moj odgovor na pitanje: "Kako nositi kožnu jaknu na ženstven način?"

 No, natrag na temu brige i previše razmišljanja. Zašto to radimo? Možda jer tako imamo osjećaj da imamo kontrolu nad stvarima. Je li to istina? Naravno da ne. Pretjerano razmišljanje o nečem ne pomaže nam nimalo. Ponekad život proleti i mi shvatimo da nismo iz njega sve izvukli jer smo ga uzeli zdravo za gotovo. Uvijek postoji nešto što možemo iskoristiti da se oraspoložimo, nešto u čemu možemo uživati i na čemu možemo biti zahvalni pa bio to lijep sunčan dan, pouzdana knjiga ili nova prilika neke vrste.  Nikad ne smijemo uzeti ništa zdravo za gotovo. Svaka sekunda je dragocjena. Svaki trenutak je jedinstven.

Jednostavna zadovoljstva. Nošenje nečega što nam odgovara u tom trenutku. Nošenje nečega što volimo. Postoji li hrana za dušu, mora postajati i odjeća za dušu. Zar je svi nemamo zapravo, zar vi nemamo barem jedan odjevni komad koji nosimo za dušu? Vintage kožna jakna. Zelena haljina koja mi nikada ne dosadi nošena s džemperom koji je ove zime bio jedan od najviše nošenih predmeta u mom ormaru. Lijepi miks stilova. Par rozih visokih peta s mašnom (što može biti ženstvenije od toga, zar ne?) nošen s kožnom jaknom koja je bila muževa. On ju je nosio dok se još nisam ni rodila. Zanimljivo, zar ne? Vrijeme leti i možda to i nije takva tragedija. Barem nam nije dosadno, zar ne?

  2. Overthinking is such an interesting thing to discuss, and I think I agree with your suggestion of it being a way of making us feel more 'in control'. Funnily enough, I think it actually has the opposite effect though! Anyway, I love seeing your personal style and the block-colour design of this dress is a lot of fun :) Have a wonderful week!!

  7. Hi Ivana! Personally I think that I "think too much" - it seems to me that I know that overthinking is stupid, because as you noticed - it doesn't solve any problem, but I caught myself that I do it sometimes, especially on the night. What about your outfit, I love your high heels, they make your legs look like supermodel's ones, really! :)
    Hope you're having lovely evening, dear :)

  16. First, love that outfit. The leather jacket make the look pretty edgy and I loooove it. Your DH worn the jacket before you were born? There you see even fashion repeat itself. I'd have sworn that leather jacket is brand new. Overthinking....well been there, done that. Thinking carefully is OK and thinking carefully is the right thing to do, that take us in control, but overthinking is not. Just the contrary, by overthinking we start to worry, by overthinking we are no longer in control, it makes us vulnerable, wrong decisions are often the result, if you know what I mean.

  21. Uh, i sama sebe izluđujem razmišljanjem, a činjenica je da nikuda ne vodi i da se često čak i neke situacije i okolnosti koje na prvi pogled zahtevaju razmišljanje, jednostavno se reše bez njega i kada je za to pravi trenutak. Koliko puta shvatim kako neke iste stvari imaju drugačiji efekat na mene onda kada se pojedem živa oko svega i kada pustim da krene sve svojim tokom i skoncentrišem se na nešto drugo. Ali mozak je čudo i treba mu doskočiti na sve načine ;)
    Te cipele su zaista najženstveniji komad obuće i stoje ti kao salivene. Baš je zanimljivo što si ih spojila sa jaknom tvog muža. Ko bi rekao da ima toliki životni vek. Deluje je kao da je nova :)

  25. "How to wear a leather jacket in a feminine way?" - hey my dear: a leather jacket is not just for men. i think also women can wearing a jacket like this very easy - you proof it very well!!! i think the right choice as a pants to combo with this jacket is always a leather leggings. but if you wearing a skirt you take also the right choice.

    BUT, i love those heels a lot, but i think they are not the right choice for this outfit. these heels are so unique and very, very feminin - like barbie´s shoes. black pumps would be great to this.

    another highlight are your tights - gosh, they are so cool!

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…

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…
