How to Wear Big 'Disney Princess' Sleeves In a Casual Way?


First, a few words about the location, it being a very pretty one and all that. These photographs were taken in recreational zone Bunica, in vicinity of Mostar. Rivers Buna and Bunica are very much worth a visit. I've written about them a number of times and they've been featured on the blog many times. There really are so many lovely places to visit in the vicinity of Mostar. The city itself has a lot to offer, and the surrounding area offers many very diverse and interesting spots. Herzegovina is a beautiful region indeed. Just in case you're planning a visit this spring, here are my links to some Instagramable areas, villages and small cities in the vicinity of Mostar (here, here, here, here, here, here , here, here, here, here, here). I can put together a little travel guide if you would be interested in reading something like that. I love to share beautiful finds with you, and for me beautiful finds often mean nature and cute outdoor spots in general.

How to Wear Big 'Disney Princess' Sleeves In a Casual Way?


Puffer sleeves rose to popularity last spring. Statement sleeves have been trendy for a while now, and it seems like this is one trend that isn't going anywhere. I purchased this dress last spring and I already wore it once on the blog here. Interestingly, the outfit I wore last spring is very similar to this one. Once again, I paired this puffed sleeve dress with jeggings because I think they are a great way to dress down this dress. However, this time I also decided to opt for a more casual choice of shoes and I wore biker boots. The bag I choose is a small one, a gift from a friends. As you could see in my last post, this spring I'm embracing the mini bag trend. The only piece of jewellerly I wore with this combo is a necklace I made myself. I think this necklace matched this dress quite nicely. I really don't give myself enough credit for all the necklace I created over the years.  Some of them are very pretty!.Most of them I gave away to friends, but I still have a few and I wear them fairly often.

How to Wear Big 'Disney Princess' Sleeves In a Casual Way?


I didn't wear any make up with this outfit because I can be lazy that way. It is not that I dislike make up. On the contrary, I think make up is a wonderful thing that much like clothes allows us to be creative. Make up can help us feel more feminine, more dressed up and stylish. A nice make up look is the perfect accessory for any outfit. So, why it is that I don't wear make up that often? I'm not sure. Maybe it is a matter of habit. My favourite make up item is a lipstick because (to me at least) it's the easiest thing to put on. Still, here I'm wearing absolutely nothing, not even a lip gloss or a lipstick. And you know what?  I feel perfectly fine this way. I think that a 'sans make up' look goes well with this casual styling.

So, what to do you think about this outfit? It is a Yes or No? Statement sleeves are nothing new. Puffed sleeves have been trending for a while. However, when puffed sleeves are this big, they make me think of Disney princess. Maybe that is why I like this dress so much. Perhaps inside every grown up women, there is a little girl who looks up to Disney princess. What do you think?  Have you ever noticed how most Disney heroines rock puffed sleeves? Do you like Disney films? Do they make you think of your childhood? What do you think about this styling?

  2. That is such a fun dress! I like how you've layered it on top to still let the fun sleeves shine - and I smiled at the Disney princess comparison! I think every girl should have a dress that makes her feel like a princess! :)

    Hope you are having a great weekend! :) Yesterday was a productive day for me and today we went out to a festival with the kids.

  11. Your outfit is a yes! I LOVE the vibrant pink color, design and appearance of your Disney princess style mini-dress!!! You look very pretty wearing it - your outfit photos are fabulous, and the recreational zone Bunica looks very pretty. I have never traveled outside of the United States and with some embarrassment confess that I needed to look up Bunica, Mostar and Herzegovina on Google maps.
    I love ultra-feminine styles and love that you are able to channel your inner princess.

    1. Thank you so much. No worries, before I moved here, I didn't know where Bunica was either:) and I didn't even know such a place existed.

  12. Hi Ivana, those are definitely beautiful and Instagramable places. Your love for nature is amazing. Statement sleeves are definitely in and girl you rocked the heck outta this one. I love the bright pink color. Great styling with the leggings. I do love makeup myself. I see it as an art and I get better everyday. Inffact the makeup I did to church this morning looked to me like the best I've done so far. Subtle for service yet very pretty. You look fresh with just your lipstick on. Nothing like a fresh face anyhow. I love every shot here Ivana, really beautiful capture. Have a great week ahead.

  16. Mostar looks like such an awesome place to visit, I just came back from Hungary and honestly I need to leave on a plane again ASAP! Also, the big sleeves are such a fashion statement and I love them! Especially when styled with such a gorgeous bright colour. Also, as an update about my Crohn's I was recently medicated which both sucks and is a lifesaver (literally I guess) and it's really made me come to terms with my illness and just how detrimental it can be which is fuuuunnn :)))) How are you at this moment?

    1. right now I'm on Imuran (1 per day), stereoids (3 per day), Pentasa (3 per day). I'm not doing so great, I'm struggling with fever, stomach ache, chronic diarrhea, and some other Chron unrelated things, but on the bright side since my surgery I didn't experience weight loss at all, right now my weight is ideal. So, at least something to look forward too:). My doctor plans to give me some B12 shots. I hope they might help a bit.

  20. Dearest Ivana,
    that was really a trip into a beautiful environment - a great place for an outfit shoot. And the casual way in which you wear your princess outfit, is doing very well. In this way, the top doesn't look cheesy ("kitschy") but stylish!
    Lots of hugs, Traude

  21. Puff sleeves are such a fun and feminine detail! While it is generally more of dressy look, I think you managed to work it into a more casual outfit perfectly with this look. You don't need any makeup. You look totally radiant!

  23. Oooh Ivana, such a good post and an interesting way to take inspiration from Disney princesses! I am a Disney fan and I love to see how we can take inspiration for our fashion attires from almost anything! I have seen this trend a lot and also the spanish dramatic sleeves (I would say it is difficult to eat with them but fashion is fashion and we must sacrifice some things haha). Love your version of a contemporary Disney princess and the location you picked to shoot hit outfit!

    Best dear!

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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
