What to wear when it is sunny but windy? Što nositi kada je sunčano, ali vjetrovito?

Officially, Spring is in full swing. Off the record, the weather isn't completely predictable. What to wear when it is sunny but windy? Layering seems to be the popular opinion. Not without reason for it makes perfect sense. The more layers we wear, the more we can take off. When it is windy but sunny we need to think about the kind of clothes that will protect us from the wind, but at the same time the material we choose to wear shouldn't be too thick. On that particular windy but sunny day, I was wearing a silk blouse, an embroidered vest and a faux leather jacket on top. I think that a faux leather jacket is always a  good solution for this type of weather. I've been wearing mine a lot this month. Another item I found myself reaching for is this vest with DIY embroidery. I'm a big fan of embroidery. I've been doing embroidery for years (read about it here). The location for the photographs was Metkovich city in Croatia. At a risk of sounding like a broken record, I'll say that it's another place that looks lovely during Spring.

Službeno, proljeće je u pravom jeku. Neslužbeno, vrijeme baš i nije posve predvidljivo. Što nositi kada je sunčano, ali vjetrovito? Slojevito odijevanje je popularno rješenje i ne bez razloga jer stvarno ima smisla. Što više slojeva nosimo, više ih možemo skinuti. Kada je vjetrovito, ali sunčano moramo razmišljati o tome kakva će nas odjeća zaštiti od vjetra, ali u isto vrijeme trebamo odabrati materijale koji neće biti predebeli. Toga sunčanoga ali vjetrovitoga dana, nosila sam svilenu bluzu, izvezeni prsluk i jaknu od eko kože. Mislim da je jakna od eko kože uvijek dobro rješenje za ovakav tip vremena. Nosila sam je dosta ovoga mjeseca. Još jedan komad za kojim sam posezala je ovaj prsluk s vezom koji sam sama izvezla. Jako volim vezenje. Godinama se pomalo bavim time (možete o tome više pročitati ovdje). Mjesto gdje su uslikane fotografije je grad Metković. Uz rizik da zvučim kao pokvarena ploča, reći ću da je to još jedno mjesto koje izgleda divno tijekom proljeća.

  3. The weather has been really unpredictable on my side too. The sun is out and next minute it rains like crazy!

    1. I know Shireen, it is like it's not Spring at all.

  4. Divne fotke uz prolećni povetarac! U pravu si, ništa bez slojevitog odevanja u proleće, koje nam je ove godine skroz nepredvidljivo.
    Veliki pozdrav

    1. hvala...da, proljeće je stvarno predvidljivo.

  5. I love that vest with the embroidery. Would have loved a closer look, looks like red roses? Anyhow, love your look, your smile and that pretty face of yours. Have a beautiful weekend, Ivana.
    New update: How Much Is Too Much

    1. I was planning to do a special post about embroidery soon. I will include more 'close up' photos of my embroidery then:).

    2. Oh yes please do, I would love to see more of it. This one looks so pretty. Have a lovely evening, Ivana.

  6. Great outfit! Lovely look!
    Happy weekend!:)


  7. Love the vest!


  8. Nice elegant outfit dear! Keep sharing!

  9. To be honest - very stylish and great! I love this outfit!

  10. Moja gotovo svakodnevna dilema ovih dana :) Čini mi se da proleće nije skoro bilo ovako prevrtljivo. Nema dana da ne pogrešim sa odabirom ili da bar ne navlačim i skidam slojeve odeće iznova i iznova, pa čak i tako uspem da se smrznem i skuvam u istom danu :D Ti si sjajno obavila taj zadatak i mnogo mi se dopada ceo spoj. Podsetila si me da dam šansu prslucima na koje često zaboravim. Sad je baš vreme za njih :) Lokacija je divna takođe, a proleće daje neku posebnu čar <3

  11. Totally cool, babe! Love the scarf on your neck, Ivana! xoxo

  12. Amazing look, dear Ivana! You are so beautiful.

    Love, Nadine

  13. i think you make the right choice. sometimes i got the same problem: sun is out, but wind is everywhere - so what should i do??? to find the right outfit for such an situation is never easy.



  14. I love your little denim jacket - and the way you joined it with this pencil skirt - by the way you look absolutely great in such skirts :)))) . Super cool look. Kisses - Margot :))))

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 

Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …
