How To Style Bermuda Shorts In a Dressed Up Way? Outfit Proposal.

Today I'm sharing with you a predominately grey styling. I think that grey is such an underestimated colour. Lately I've been wearing it more often. It is very easy to style and besides light shades of grey can be so perfect for spring. As much as I love colour & crazy prints, sometimes I feel like wearing something a bit toned down.

Back to the subject of this post and that is styling bermuda shorts. When it comes to shorts, I always go for a longer lengths because it feels more comfortable and practical. In addition, a longer length of shorts is appropriate for all kind of occasions. You can even pair longer shorts with a blazer to get a more formal look. When you add tights into the mix, you get a work appropriate outfit. The answer to my question of the day- How to style Bermuda shorts in a dressed up way is: wear them with tights and heels. If you're going for a dressed up look, a nice shirt or a blouse is always welcome. You can also throw a blazer over it. Anyhow, this is my spring outfit proposal. You can see a summer version of this outfit here.

As far as location is concerned, we're still in Mostar. Isn't it a gorgeous city? These images were taken in front of Croatian theater Kosacha in Mostar. It was a lovely sunny day and it was my birthday.  I've literally just remembered that! Yes, you're looking at my birthday outfit. I forgot where we went for lunch that day (or did we?), but I remember that I made strawberry pie later in the day. It was a busy day and I haven't had the time to celebrate my birthday properly, but I'm not complaining. You don't always need a great celebration. As cheesy as it sounds, I'm just happy to be alive and breathing.

  7. I adore grey as much as I love white and black. It's a colour that I personally find easy to match and wear.

  10. i love your blouse!!! this is a real beauty piece of fashion. the bermuda short is ok, but not really my taste. but i love this tights! i like it, that you taking an opaque pantyhose instead of a teint pantyhose. these tights is a perfect match to your look

    i think you should wear this monochrome/one colored look very often - it fits you.

  11. Your shorts are lovely and the silk blouse is so nice with them - dresses them up perfectly, such a good birthday outfit! I find bermuda shorts really wearable - I featured them in one of my 30 ways to wear posts this year, a wardrobe staple for me!

    Hope that you had a lovely weekend and you're having a good start to your week :)

  14. I agree with you Ivana that grey is an underestimated color but it's a color that looks beautiful even in all the seasons. My father use to say it as 'royal color'. He always want to buy a grey color saree for my mother..hahaha..
    Your outfit is so elegant here. I love that Bermuda style shorts and the way you have paired it with that silk blouse. The best thing is that you have worn it with those lovely tights which made is more classy. I need to add some silk blouse like yours. The bow tie has enhanced the beauty of that blouse. You are looking so beautiful.
    Have a fantastic day <3 Kisses <3

  15. I totally agree about grey being such an underestimated colour. It is actually my favorite neutral and I love it even more than black and white because I find it more subtle and easier to wear. Bermuda shorts are the best style of shorts for dressing up IMHO and you done a lovely job of styling them in this outfit which looks so ladylike and chic!

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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
