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.

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
