Should we wear dresses during Winter?

Should we wear dresses during the colder months? I think we should, especially if they are an item of clothing that we normally like to wear. Provided that we like to wear dresses, there is so reason why we shouldn't wear them during all seasons. Dresses are one of the most feminine  clothing items and it is shame to give up on them just because temperatures drops below zero. There are actually a lot of ways to wear dresses in Winter. If we are worried about the cold we can always make sure we layer our outfits well. I'm do wear leggings and/or tights with dresses as soon as it gets colder, I was never the one to brave the cold with bare legs in Winter. 



What do you think about wearing dresses in Winter? Do you prefer to wear pants during the colder season? I just realized there is actually a compromise offered by a new trend. Dresses over pants is a fashion trend loved by many. Moreover, this combo is perfect for those ladies who don't want to give up on their favourite pair of jeans or pants. This way you can still wear your favourite dress together with your favourite pants. When it comes to dresses, I actually don't have a preferred style. I often wear dresses and I don't see why a temperature change should make me give up something I enjoy. 

Here I made a selection of dresses for women from brand FashionMia. What kind of dresses do you like to wear during the colder months? What do you like to pair the dresses with? I often pair dresses with boots, I know it is not terribly original thing to do during Winter but if it does the trick, why not? Staying warm is important. Still, if you are trying to create a more elegant look then it is better to opt for a nice pair of pumps. You can always choose thicker thighs if you are worried about getting a cold. 





What kind of dress you should opt for if you are plus size? Well, if you ask me, you should wear whatever you like. Magazines are full of advice on how to dress one's body type and while these kind of tips can be useful, shouldn't we also wear what we like? What is the point of clothes if we can't enjoy them? I do believe that every size is beautiful. I believe we can enjoy fashion not matter what our size is. I don't believe that you can be healthy no matter the size, because obviously if one is size XXXXXXXXXL then one has a health condition, but you can and should love yourself not matter the size or health condition for that matter.  Fortunately nowadays, there is a pretty good selection of plus size clothing available.  If you love clothes and fashion, there is so reason why you shouldn't enjoy clothes and fashion.



Do you have a preferred dress style when it gets colder? What about the material? Do you prefer knitted dress or do you still wear satin and silk? I've never given this matter that much though, but I'm usually pretty practical. A nice over-sized dress paired with boots and leggings is always a comfortable choice. A knitted dress is especially suitable on those extremely cold days. I love knitted dresses, but I think that thinner materials are alright as well as long as we layer them well. Speaking of lighter materials, there is one vintage red dress that I didn't get to wear this year, so I'm making a mental note to style that one at least once. For some reasons, red is the colour that I'm craving right now. Maybe because of the Chinese New Year? I've been wanting to wear something more dramatic in the dress department, but my choices lately have been pretty safe (at least according to my standards). I hope I'll find the time to put together an outfit that will be a bit more fashion forward soon. That would be all for today.  Thank you for reading. Have a lovely day!

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.

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

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. …

HOW TO WEAR MORE WHITE IN WINTER IN FIVE SIMPLE STEPS

It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets. 


1. START WITH ACCESSORIES 

If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…

READING UPDATE, NEW FINDS: MARIO VARGAS LLOSA AND RAGNAR JONASSON

I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
