Two Spring outfits. Both of them drawn with a pencil. One is depicting a girl wearing an off shoulder midi dress and the other one shows a girl wearing skinny jeans and a blouse with bell sleeves (ruffled bell sleeves to be more precise). What both of them have in common are ruffles. Do you like ruffles? Do you plan to wear this trend? I'm a big fan of the ruffle trend. Perhaps it is because deep inside I'm a hopeless romantic.

Dvije proljetne odjevne kombinacije. Obje nacrtane olovke. Jedna prikazuje djevojku koja nosi midi haljinu golih ramena, a druga djevojku koja nosi uske traperice i bluzu s širokim rukavima (zvonastim rukavima na volane da budem precizna). Ono što obje imaju zajedničko su volani. Volite li vi volane? Planirate li nositi ovaj trend? Veliki sam obožavatelj trenda volana. Možda zato što sam duboko u sebi veliki romantik.

  1. very creative

  2. Prześliczne rysunki! :)

  3. Hi Ivana! I really like both of your illustration and proposition to Spring's outfits - both of them are amazing. Personally, I've romantic soul too, so I'll wear as much ruffles as much I can this spring, I'm happy that they're trendy right now and I can see them everywhere. What about first outfit, the dress is terrific - in my opinion it's in haute coulture's style annd I'm pretty sure that it will look incredibly on runaway.
    Thank you for you comments, Ivana, especially for your last one below my the latest post - it means a lot to me! <3
    Take care, dear!

    1. thank you darling. I'm glad to meet a fellow romantic.

  4. Your sketches are so amazing as always.

  5. entrambi stupendi!!!
    buon venerdì, un bacione

  7. It's nice you're trying different mediums for your illustrations! I think this is the first time I've seen you using just pencil, you capture the ruffles well! :)

    Hope you're having a great end to the week with a lovely weekend ahead!

  8. These drawings are amazing, second is my fav!:)


  9. Super su mi obje ilustracije, mislim da je ona prva haljinica baš zanimljiva - ja sam je iz nekog razloga odmah zamislila u crvenoj boji - valjda mi je ljeto već lagano udarilo u glavu haha :D

  10. I love how your portrayed the movement of the first outfit :)

  11. Ja ih obožavam. Tako su romantični i efektni. Obe kombinacije su baš po mom ukusu i nešto što bih jako volela da imam u svom ormanu i nosim ovih dana :) Još jedan dokaz da ti i crteži olovkom jako dobro idu od ruke ;)

  12. I feel like there is such a contrast to these outfits/illustrations but there is also a good deal to similarity not just in terms of the ruffles but in the grace and movement you managed to capture in both. I'm definitely a fan of ruffles because they are so feminine. I've been wearing my new ruffled shoulder sweater non-stop lately.

  13. Great drawings :) I always like to draw with pencil - it's easier than doing the plain ink without any sketch.

  14. It took me forever to try floral dress and I think it'll take me even longer to finally try ruffles. LOL! I am always behind time.

  15. Gorgeous drawings babe! I love the statement bell sleeves... super chic! <3

    XO Jessi,

  16. Beautiful illustrations, dear Ivana! I would love to wear this amazing dress and of course I love ruffles ;-)

Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…



What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …
