For the love of flowers...Za ljubav prema cvijeću....(Buna, BIH)

In my last post I showed you how flowers can play well with fashion illustrations. Today I'm going to show you how to wear a floral print in a casual way. I'm a big fan of a floral print for a number of reasons. One of them is certainly their eye-catching appeal. However, sometimes I feel like rocking the floral print in a more subtle way. Not every outfit needs to be a fashion statement, right? Sometimes we feel like taking it easy. How to dress florals down? What I like to do is  to wear one floral item with colours that are either more neutral or (and) those that are a nice match with the colour that is present on the floral item in question. When I want to wear florals without drawing too much attention to the look, I stay away from the flashy accessories and keep it simple. Anyhow, that's my way to make the floral print more appropriate for every day wear. If you're looking for more inspiration,  you can see how I styled this floral dress (yes, it's actually a dress/tunics) here and here.  The location for this photographs was Buna in Bosnia and Herzegovina...and don't think for a second I'm not aware of how beautiful this place is and how lucky I'm to live in such a beautiful area. 

U zadnjoj objavi sam vam pokazala kako se cvijeće može dobro slagati s modnim ilustracijama. Danas ću vam pokazati kako nositi cvjetni uzorak na ležerni način. Veliki sam obožavatelj cvjetnoga uzorka iz više razloga, a jedan od njih je sigurno njegova zamjetljivost. No, ponekad mi dođe da ga nosim na neki malo suptiliji način. Ne mora svaka odjevna kombinacija biti modna izjava, zar ne? Ponekad nam dođe da budemo malo opušteniji. Kako nositi cvjetni uzorak na ležerni način? Ono što se meni sviđa je kombinirati jedan odjevni predmet sa cvjetnim uzorkom s drugima koji su ili neutralne boje i/illi jedne od boja koje se slažu sa samim cvjetnim uzorkom. Kada mi se nosi cvjetni uzorak, a ne želim privući previše pažnje na kombinaciju, onda odustajem od previše primjetnih modnih dodataka i držim se jednostavnosti. Uglavnom, to je moj način za napraviti cvjetni uzorak više nosivijim svakodnevno. Ako želite još nadahnuća, možete vidjeti kako sam uskladila ovu cvjetnu haljinu (da, zapravo se radi o haljini/tunici) ovdje i ovdje. Lokacija za ove slike je Buna u Bosni i Herzegovini....i nemojte misliti da nisam posve svjesna kako sam sretna što živim u tako prekrasnom području.

  7. I think to pair this elegant yet casual outfit with those hiking(?) boots is a fashion statement and a very smart one, Ivana. You pull of this edgy look extremely well.

  11. That's a really pretty floral print. I like your idea to wear florals in a more subtle way and you pulled it off really well with this outfit. It's true that not every outfit needs to be a statement.

  30. Since florals are already busy well kinda, I agree with pairing them with solid items. While a great mixed print look is great, I also love this classic way of rocking florals. Your skirt is very cute, the color is perfection! You look very fresh and chic Ivana! Hope your weekend is going great.

  36. Ti sama deluješ kao neki divni cvet koji je izronio iz predivne prirode :) Mislim da je cveće večna inspiracija u svakom smilsu, pa me ni čudi što se cvetni uzorak uvek vraća. Na kraju krajeva, proleću cveće najlepše pristaje :)
    Kombinacija je divna i mnogo ti lepo stoje te rozikaste nijanse. Frizura ti je savršena! :)

  40. Preslatko ti stoje ovakve girly kombinacije! Cvetni print i ja volim i cesto nosim u ovim toplijim mesecima. Slazem se da kada se odlucimo za neki cvetni komad, ostatak kombinacije treba da je svedeniji i bez previse detalja.

  41. I love how you kept the floral blouse the focus of your feminine outfit. And, I'm always a fan of Mother Nature backdrops! How beautiful is this place. From your photos, they look so serene, brimming with Life and everything in between. :) x

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…

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.
