What I'm reading at the moment + What I Wore for IWD (One Skirt, Two Outfits)

Spring is in the air. Well, sort of. It's kind of cold, but we won't let stop us, will we? We can always snuggle with a nice book. Speaking of which, this is the book I'm reading at the moment. All the Kings's Men by Robert Penn Warren. Published in 1964, it is considered a classic. Warren even got a Pulitzer for this novel. So far, this novel didn't disappoint me. It talks about a rise of a politician Willie, but the story itself is told from a perspective of Jack, who works for Willie. The narrative pattern resembles that of The Great Gatsby. I do like the way this book is written. The style of writing makes me think of Faulkner. I haven't finished it yet, so I can't give you a recommendation or anything like that. Are you reading anything at the moment? I have to level with you and say that I haven't done as nearly as much reading this month as I usually do. I could say it is because I had a lot of medical exams, but that would be just an excuse. The truth is that I'm having troubles concentrating on reading, something that doesn't usually happen to me, no matter how hectic things might get.  So, I think my slower reading pace has nothing to do with whatever has been going on in my life. Maybe I'm just going through a reader burnout. I've read so many books in January and February, it's really no wonder. Do you ever get a reader's burnout?

Happy Sunday ( One Skirt, Two Outfits) #modaodaradosti

#reader #book #bookphotography

Hello there! I'm Ivana and I'm a coffeeholic. I'm not so much addicted to caffeine as to coffee as such. I mean I love caffeine (who doesn't) but I can do without it and if I must, I'll drink decaf. I love coffee in all shapes and forms. I love drinking coffee and I like eating sweets and cakes that contain coffee. Sometimes I make cakes with coffee. Having a cup of coffee in my hand and a book by my side is pretty much my idea of happiness. Enough about my coffee addiction. Besides talking about what I'm reading at the moment, I'll also show you two outfits. I wore both of them on the same day, on eight of March. I wore the same skirt with both outfits. This skirt is one of my favourites ones. The combination of wool and silk makes it pretty unique. I don't think I have another skirt in my closet made from the same textile combination. I remember how surprised I was when I had seen the label. Wool and silk together? Interesting combination of textures, wouldn't you say? Speaking of texture, I'm still wearing my faux fur scarves. As long as it continues to be cold, I will continue to rely on them.

 How I celebrated International Women's Day?

I might have mentioned this, but I do love this celebration. It usually puts me in a good mood, and that day was no exception. In reality, it was such a was a lovely day. I went for a cup of coffee with my husband in the morning. I made a lovely home made meal for lunch (lasagne bolognese if I remember well). After that, we went for a little walk in the nature. Later in the day, I prepared a blog post with reading recommendations.  You have already seen the first outfit I wore in this post. This is the second outfit that I have worn on the International Women's Day. I wore this one for a walk in the nature. We encountered a lovely creature on your walk. Yes, we saw a little hedgehog. I love hedgehogs. They are so cute, aren't they? When I was little my father brought us two hedgehogs to keep as pets. They were so sweet! They would let us pet them and everything. It's amazing how affectionate they can be.

  7. I've heard that book is really good. I've never read it. It's possible to get burn out from anything if you do it too much. LOL You have so many great hobbies though.

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 

Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …
