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

    1. i da prsluci dobro dođu kad je vrijeme nepredvidljivo.

  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 :))))

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…

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.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
