How To Style A Cherry Print Dress in Summer?

Recently I have written about different ways to style a summer dress (you can read that post here), but truth be told, I'm not always that creative. Sometimes I want to simplify things and take it be easy. Sometimes I want to get ready in five minutes. When I feel like that, I tend to simply grab my favourite summer dress, a pair of  leather sandals and a cute bag. There is nothing new about this outfit, but sometimes you need to rely on your classics. Why not? Fashion isn't just about trying new things all the time, it's about finding joy in putting an outfit together! Fashion is also about wearing things you like and cherishing your favourite clothing items. That's my personal definition anyway. You've seen me wear this cherry print dress many many times. The bag and the sandals are spring purchases, but I've been wearing them non stop, so you must have seen them quite a few times as well. However, sometimes there is nothing wrong in relying on clothing items that just work. Do you agree? I do love a printed dress. Summer is perhaps the ideal time to rock printed dresses. With a printed dress, you don't need many accessories to get noticed. A printed dress is a statement piece on its own. In other words, perfect for those days when you're in a rush or feeling lazy. Not that you shouldn't get more creative if you feel like it? There are many ways to style a cherry print dress. If you want to see other suggestions you can check out this post where I wore this dress with a yellow bag to make it pop even more, or this post where I paired it with an oversize hat and kitten heels to make it more sophisticated and lady like. Here is a similar outfit, but with wedges. If you are the type that loves  perky accessories, check out this post where I wore this dress with hand made cat ears.

All of these photographs were taken in Mostar city, Bosnia and Herzegovina. (That's where I'm based, but even I wasn't, I'd probably still enjoy taking photographs here. I've been living here for a while now, but I never seem to get tired of this city. This particular spot is located near to the city's tennis club, where you can also grab something to eat in a really good restaurant. I love this area because I'm a sucker for cypress trees but also because there is a really cute duck family that lives in this stream.  If you are planning to visit Mostar, you can check out this post where I wrote my tips for finding perfect photo and Instagram worthy places in Mostar.  To make a long story short, here is a short version of my tips for finding great photo locations in Mostar:

1. Look for elevated places, artificial (church tower, buildings etc) or natural (hills, mountains). 
2. Visit old city centre (an attractive location mostly because its historical appeal).
3. Seek out bridges (there are so many bridges in Mostar, do visit as many as you possibly can).
4. Stroll by river and creeks (Neretva is the most impressive, but there are other lovely rivers and creeks in this city).
5. Look for historical, cultural or religious buildings (there are plenty of those here!)
6. Take a moment to relax in one of city's parks or in some other green area.

Whatever you do, remember to have fun. As I wrote in my last post, taking photographs is important but so is living in the moment. Perhaps there is a way we can have both? I sure hope so. Tell me, do you have any photography tips? If you take photographs, how do you go about it? If you a fashion blogger/influencer or just somebody who wants to look nice captured on camera, what are your posing secrets? How do you choose your locations? Do you prefer to have your photo taken or to take photographs. It's an interesting topic, isn't it? Moreover, tell me do you have days when you feel like wearing some simple? Do you like print dresses? Do you wear them in the summer? Do you have a favourite dress? Do you often wear dresses? And if your answer is yes....What kind of dresses do you wear most often? It would be fun to know. That would be all for today. I'm currently working on preparing a number of (hopefully informative posts), so I decided to keep this post simple and not too long. Thank you all for visiting and for your lovely comments. Have a fantastic weekend!

  12. Super cute dress and beautiful photos, Ivana! I am like you where I like to get photos of my outfits, but I also need to live in the moment. So when doing things like sightseeing or visiting the park with my kids, if I need outfit photos, we do those first, then I put the phone away and enjoy the moment. I love a cute little boho dress in summer on a hot day...although I have not been wearing very many dresses this summer and have been more of cut off denim shorts and kimono kind of girl this year!

  27. Ivana, these summer proposals are ideal for any escapade during one of the best seasons of the year (but at least I prefer colder weather, like autumn). Love that you mentioned that fashion is not only about trying different stuff but finding joy in our clothes, something that we tend to forget when we only want to follow trends and copy style from others without thinking more about the final result and the happiness our clothes should give us right? You look great in this proposals and love that you're including a blast of colors (and vitamins due to the fruit pattern) in this dress!

    Best regards!

  33. Most women don’t know this... but even if a man is attracted to you or even says he loves you...

    ...chances are he still feels something is missing.

    Because there is a secret, emotional need hidden within his heart that he craves more than anything.

    And in most cases, is not being met.

    The problem is, if it’s not being met, his attention will inevitably wander until he finds a woman who can give it to him.

    Maybe one in a thousand women knows how to do this instinctively, and they usually rise to unbelievable levels of influence and fame.

    But most women, or men for that matter, don’t even know it exists.

    On the other hand, when you have this 1 simple secret...

    You won’t believe the shocking effect you have on the men in your life.

    Here’s a video I discovered that shows you exactly what I’m talking about:

    ==> Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> He’ll give his heart to the first woman who does THIS...


  34. Great post :) I like it :) fantastic outfit :)

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. 

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…
