Spring To Summer Transition: Outfit Proposal, LDB Worn With Black Leggings and Brown Sandals

Spring To Summer Transition is probably the least talked about seasonal transition. True, depending on where you live the transition between spring and summer may not be that dramatic. If you live in a warmer climate, you might not notice the transition at all. Even in a colder climate, summer and spring temperatures might be quite similar. Anyhow, weather isn't completely dependable these days. Even if it the weather was more stable and dependable, seasonal changes are more than just a temperature change. I guess that Summer is, for many of us, a feeling. Yes, a feeling. It is only lately that I've been feeling that the Summer has finally began. For me the Summer goes beyond the warm temperatures.  We've had summer temperatures for a while now, and even with all the daily showers we have been experiencing lately, one could claim that the summer arrived a while ago.


Tell me, how do you dress during summertime? What feelings does Summer invoke in you? Do you prefer Spring to Summer or the other way around? What is the difference between spring and summer dressing at all? I feel like summer style is a bit more relaxed. Do you? This outfit could be characterized as something in between. I'm wearing a really fun LDB but I paired it with black leggings. Instead of the belt, I tied a scarf, a little styling trick I use often. The necklace I'm wearing is my own design, the earrings and the hair pin are hand made, a gift from blogger friend Natalia (you can check out her blog here).







 When you find a tablecloth that matches your new bag, you have to take a photograph of it. I do love this shade. All of these photographs were taken in Romance restaurant, located in vicinity of Mostar city. If you ever found yourself in the area, do pay it a visit. Both the inner and the outside design of the restaurant is extremely beautiful. In general, it could be said that most of the restaurant in Herzegovina have that luxurious feel. However, despite the fact that the restaurants here look expensive, the prices are actually quite affordable. If you decide to visit Herzegovina, dinning is definitely something you should try. The gastro scene in this country is great. I was planning to put together a little gastro guide. Let me know in the comments if you interested in reading something like that. I love how in Herzegovina, everyone is really into inner design and architecture. People put in so much time and money to make their homes and business look beautiful. Considering that the state isn't really putting much effort into improving infrastructure or doing proper urban planning and development (bad roads in the country are legendary), it is nice that people themselves are being proactive. Sometimes you need to create your own beauty, if you know what I mean. You can just wait for it to happen.  Speaking of inner design and architecture, thank you so much for all the lovely feedback you left on my last 'Project House' post.

  1. What a cute bag and outfit! I love the ruffles on the skirt of your dress, and that belt works perfectly with it, as does the statement necklace. It's winter here now, summer has definitely ended!

    Hope that you are having a great week so far! :)

  11. You can’t go wrong with the classics, I love black on black styling. It’s timeless and incredibly versatile. I wish we had a bit more of summer in London, it’s just not worth investing too much in summery fashion. As long as I have my umbrella with me 😂

  21. This is a quite nice outfit sporting the dress, leggings, and sandals. So I say you styled this one well. This outfit is nothing over-the-top or fancy. Instead, it is a fairly casual yet chic outfit.

    By the way, and so I don't forget, I like this blog layout change for this fine blog. I should have mentioned that when I came back to this blog after a great amount of time away from it.

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…
