Fashion illustrations of the day (green dress, blue swimsuit) / Modne ilustracije dana (zelena haljina, plavi kupaći kostim)

Today I'm sharing two illustrations with you. The first one is combination of a painting and a drawing (mixed media watercolour and markers), while the other is a drawing but also mixed media one (coloured pencils and markers).  The style is a bit different than my usual illustration, but you know me- always mixing it up. The first illustration is that of a green dress with big sleeves. I do like the trends that came about this Spring. I'm a big fan of colour green so all these greenery vibes really make me happy. Not to say anything of the statement sleeves. I think this trend is here to stay. The second illustration depicts a summer outfit. I love illustrating swimsuits.  The location I had in mind for the second illustration is this one (just in case anyone is wondering). 

Danas sa vama dijelim dvije ilustracije. Prva je kombinacija slike i crteža (mješani medij: vodene boje i markeri), dok je druga crtež ali isto pomiješan medij (bojice i markeri). Stil je malo drugačiji od mojih uobičajenih ilustracija, ali znate mene, uvijek nešto novo uvodim. Prva ilustracija je slika zelene haljine sa velikim rukavima. Sviđaju mi se trendovi koji su se pojavili ovoga proljeća. Veliki sam obožavatelj zelene boje, tako da mi ovaj zeleni trend odgovara. Da ne kažem ništa o upečatljivim rukavima. Mislim da će se taj trend i održati. Druga ilustracija prikazuje ljetnu kombinacija.  Volim slikati kupaće kostime. Lokacija koju sam imala na pameti kada sam naslikala drugu je ova (u slučaju da se itko pita).

  1. Beautiful drawings :)

  2. Che belle Ivana! Mi piace soprattutto il look con il caftano! Baci, Valeria - Coco et La vie en rose FASHION & BEAUTY

  3. Very nice! Have a lovely Day! 👌👌👌

  4. Both are really lovely! I hope you've had a good weekend :) xx

  5. Adoro le tue illustrazioni, lo sai, sei davvero brava e mi piace sempre molto la scelta dei colori che fai!
    Kisses, Paola.

  6. Both are really nice, good job on the brick work in the first one, Ivana.
    latest look: Glitter And Gingham

  7. That is such a lovely shade of green you used for the dress in the first illustration! I feel like I need to find something in that color to wear now :) And you did a really great job of capturing the spirit of summer in the second illustration. Nailed it on the location as well :)

    1. thank you Rowena. This shade of green is lovely, perhaps some day I'll use it to make a dress ( I will need to learn how to sew properly first). I'm glad you like these illustrations.

  8. So nice!!!!! Congrats!

  9. I see so many people rocking green, and the shade you used in the first sketch is really nice, I just have the hardest time wearing green. I'm trying to challenge myself to wear it more often as I do have a few green pieces in my wardrobe, but it's not easy for me like say blue or purple!

    Hope you have had a great weekend! :)

  10. Good job! :)
    Thanks for sharing!

  11. They're both really beautiful, but I just love the second :)

  12. Divne ilustracije! :D

  13. I want that second dress for the beach, it would be looking awesome!! I have transparent pants in this style, but haven't tried them out yet :D




  14. Molto belle entrambe le illustrazioni Ivana!
    Mi piace soprattutto la prima, hai reso davvero bene il vestito! :)

  15. Thanks for the great post) Have a nice week!

  16. look super amazing...xx

  17. both are pretty! love the way you made a transparent dress for the bikini outfit. gorgeous :)

  18. Ivana, I like the green one... I like poofy sleeve myself and green is a pretty color... also that is cute purple sheer cover up over the bathing suit... very nice.

    I wanted to thank you so much for all the lovely comments you left on my blog, I was incredibly touched with how thoughtful and caring they were. I am sorry I didn't get back to you sooner but I was in terrible pain and not able to write ... which was difficult for me... My doctor gave me a new prescription that seems to helping ease the pain... Finally I can get back to writing and blogging, I missed both a great deal ... I hope you have a lovely week ahead xox

  19. Predivne su obe, a za trunku vise mi se dopada kupaci kostim :-*

  20. I do so like the first one, it is a delightful colour and I love how your hem of the dress looks like it is really 3d!

  21. Green is such a great color and just screams life to me. It's that time of the year when we see it all over. I love the big sleeve trend too and believe it's not going anywhere anytime soon. These illustrations are so awesome Ivana. You know I'm art illiterate but I know a good piece when I see one. So much details covered especially in the bathing suit piece. You really need to take this talent to the next level. Kudos for work well done as always darling!

    I hope you enjoy a fab weekend. I am pooped with all the work and protocol for closing of school on Thursday but I'll try to enjoy my weekend regardless.

  22. Nice green dress, Ivana! Love the puff sleeves! xoxo

  23. Both illustraions are breathtaking ! You are talented :)

  24. Another fabulous art job by you here. Wonderful!

  25. Gorgeous pics, I especially love how detailed the second one is! :) I do really love the colour green, but I don't think I own a single green item in my wardrobe. I always found it a little difficult to wear on me, but I do really like it on others. Perhaps I should change that! The dress in the first illustration is super beautiful. <3 Thank you for sharing your wonderful art with us! xoxo


  26. Very pretty!

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. …
