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.

  22. "Tell me, how do you dress during summertime?" - i would wearing your look, no question. leggings are always great on femals. you love leggings, i love leggings. i could wearing all the time this nice piece of fashion.

    even on hot summer days, i wear always a pantyhose - i hate naked legs and i would never wearing shoes barefeet. but, of course, a nice summer dress or even a simple pants are also great styles for summertime. in combo to a top or blouse.

    i never really like summetime, because of the hot weather. but after the summer comes autumn - my favorite season. my anticipation for autumn is over the top...;-)

    hugs

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.

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…

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 …

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…
