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.

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

  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

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…

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…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
