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 :))))

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.

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. …
