Fashion illustration of the day (olive flared jeans: green trend report)

I'm back with another original fashion illustration and design (the medium is watercolour on paper). This illustrated outfit is all about layering. Besides olive flare jeans, our blonde is sporting a jacket, a turtleneck and a cardigan over it. A nice faux fur scarf is a great way to add some drama into a winter outfit. In addition, she opted for black high heels, beanie and a little bag to dress up those jeans a little. What do you think about this outfit proposal? Would you wear something like this? Do you like the combination of colours (brown, dark orange, olive green and black)? Do you like pointy heels? I've just got a pair of pointy heels yesterday. You know, I've started to actively search for (and sometimes even attempting making) things I illustrate. I guess that is a proof how creating art can set our creative juices going. It can all be connected you know. Creative work that is. We don't have to put borders everywhere and divide everything all the time. Sometimes we should just let things flow and stop worrying about whether something is considered banal or deep. Perhaps there are no deep or shallow jobs or hobbies, there are only deep or shallow people. Life is what you make of it.

Sometimes I like to add backgrounds to my fashion illustration. Location illustrating is something I want to work on more this year. The background for this illustration is based on Croatian coastline, more precisely municipality Lastovo (google it if you want to see more). Lastovo municipality consists of 46 islands and it is a part of Dubrovnik- Neretva county in Croatia. The largest of these islands is Lastovo. The name of the largest town on Lastovo island is also Lastovo. This is sometimes the case with Croatian islands, the largest settlement being named the same as the island (for example the famous island Hvar). There are more than a thousand islands in Croatia (the number varies according to classifications criteria and whether or not you count small islands but it is a big number), so if islands are your thing, Croatia is a pretty good choice.

  1. Belle questi illustrazioni

  2. Your drawings really remind me of my moms, I forgot to mentioned this previously, one of the reasons why I love them so much too.
    I can imagine this on a model all cozy with those winter layers ^^

  3. I love a flaired pant! Great styling! It is inspiration for an outfit. You should consider fashion designing. You're good :D

  4. Bè direi che scegliendo il mare della Croazia come sfondo per la tua illustrazione non avresti potuto trovare di meglio!
    La Croazia ha un mare meraviglioso e le isolette sono una più bella dell'altra, ricorda molto la Grecia!
    Bellissimo il contrasto di colori che hai creato! :)

  5. So nice

  6. Great post.

  7. While I may not be a fan of the cold weather, I do enjoy layering as it poses a fun and creative fashion challenge to balance style with staying warm . This outfit you illustrated is a nice combination of colors and I'm imagining the textures would be quite fun as well :)

  8. I like islands. Lastovo looks nice.

  9. Very nice! Looks incredible!
    Happy Wednesday, babe!

  13. Dear Ivana, thank you for sharing another beautiful fashion illustration! I totally would wear such a look and it makes me smile that I'm wearing today a similar look (I showed it already last year on my blog): Yellow fur scarf, black pants, black ankle boots and grey cardigan :) Have a wonderful start into the weekend!

  15. How fun you're planning on working more on your background illustrations, it must be so exciting constantly developing your skills and expanding on your go-to's!

  18. LOVE LOVE LOVE the outfit you're proposing for this illustration, is beyond amazing and I have seen a lot of jeans and pants similar to this, the unfortunately thing is that you need to be kinda tall in order to look good of them don't you think? :( Anyway I think nowadays we have a lot of different proposals when it comes to clothes in order to stop wearing the same kind of pants :p


  19. great design Ivana. i love this looooonnnng scarf...;-)

    i also like the background of this painting. looks like a beautiful waterside.

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. …
