Jeans Worn Over a Dress (Outfit Proposal).

Today I'm back with another outfit proposal. Wearing dresses over jeans is something that I've enjoyed doing since high school. Lately, I've been more drawn to this look because I feel it is such a great summer outfit. The last few outfits  I shared featuring dresses and jeans combos were predominately white, so today I'm going to share an all blue look. In this outfit I pared a blue navy dress with classical cut blue jeans and brown sandals. I think this outfit looks pretty cute. What do you think? It is certainly a very comfy summer styling. The location for the photographs is, as most of the time, lovely Mostar city.

Now that we got that covered, I want to apologise for my absence, I stayed in hospital a bit longer that I originally thought I will. I was only discharged from hospital yesterday. If you remember, I went there for an operation of my paralysed vocal cord, a procedure called tyhroplasty.  I was admitted to hospital this Monday, but as there were some emergency cases, I had to wait for my operation until the day prior to yesterday. Unfortunately, the operation wasn't successful, that is, it wasn't possible to place an implant in my paralysed vocal cord, but I'm perfectly fine just feeling a bit sore as is totally normal after any kind of operation.

 I will need to do another (different) operation in a few months probably this Autumn. Until then, my voice will remain as it was. The operation didn't cause me any harm, it seems that it just wasn't the right kind of procedure for me but there was no knowing it before I tried. These things happen and it's actually nothing terribly dangerous. If you want to know more about paralysed vocal cords and available treatments, I can always write more about it. As you know, I've only recently found out some things about it myself. Anyway, I will be catching up with your comments and blogs this week. I probably won't be able to blog daily, as I usually do, so it might take me a few days to catch up with all of you. I'm away from the city I'm normally based in, and I have to stay in a new city for a few days, to have my check ups and have my stitches removed.  I'm actually borrowing the laptop I'm typing on right now. Thank you for your understanding!


  1. Very clever stylization my dear! Such a great idea to wear dress with jeans :-) Have a fantastic weekend !

  2. Lovely idea! ;)

  3. I'm sorry to hear that your operation wasn't as successful as it was intended to be! I'm glad to hear that you are okay and that it didn't get worse from the operation. Sometimes you just have to do what is necessary to feel and be your best! I have to say, I have noticed a lot more people wearing this outfit with a dress over jeans. I think it is much more European and way less American, thus I don't see it a lot in the states! I feel like a lot of people wear this in Itlay. I say this because a close friend of mine is Italian and she has been wearing jeans and dresses like this for as long as I can remember!

  4. Your dress looks great over jeans! This is an outfit combination I need to try one day, I still haven't yet!

    So sorry to hear that the operation didn't go as planned though - hopefully your recovery and follow ups go well and you can return home again soon. I understand you trying to keep up with blogging - I did the same when my son was in hospital as it was a bit or normality in a crazy time, borrowing a laptop was a good idea, but remember not to tire yourself out too much and rest when you can! :)

    Hope you are having a great weekend so far :)

  9. Sorry to hear about the op! I love this dress though. Lovely pattern and colours.

  13. Very nice combo and I hope that the next surgery will be the right and last one! Happy Monday xx

  14. Hey Ivana, hope you're enjoying summer days! I was off for a little time but now I'm back to the blogging world and ready to share more content with readers, as always I really want to thank all your constant support.

    First of all I am sorry to hear that your operation didn't go as it supposed to. Fortunately you're facing this event with the best attitude and even tho is hard sometimes we need to understand that there are factors and things that go out of our control, make sure to surround yourself with small things you love in order to do better: art, blogging, strolling around your city, etc. It is a small trick but it works in this kind of situations, trust me.

    On the other side I'm happy to see that you're always playing with your clothes in order to try new things... Long life to jeans and the multiple ways we have to wear them!

    Best and I'm gonna stop at the other posts I missed!

    Hey Fungi Blog

  15. Your outfit is making me nostalgic as I also used to be a fan of wearing dresses over jeans as well and now I'm inspired to do the same again. I'm so sorry that this last operation didn't give you the best results Ivana. Hopefully the next one will. In the meantime do continue to take good care of yourself. That's the most important thing. The blog will be here and so will your readers when you can post.

    1. When I was in high school I used to wear dresses like this, and now I feel like doing it again.

  16. Cavoli, mi dispiace tanto che la tua operazione non sia andata bene come ti sapettavi, Ivana... Per quanto possa esser stata una procedura poco invasiva è comunque un'operazione, il che comporta stress e preoccupazioni a prescindere!
    Speriamo che la prossima vada bene e tu riesca a guarire definitivamente!
    Molto carino il tuo look, trovo che quell'abito stia particolarmente bene abbinato ai jeans, risulta tutto molto omogeneo e stiloso!
    Tu sei deliziosa come sempre! :)

    1. grazie, anche a me sembra che questo abito stia bene con gli jeans.

  17. Outfit molto carino!!

  18. Ova kombinacija me je podsetila na drugaricu iz detinjstva (par godina stariju od mene) koja je prvi put nosila suknje i haljine preko farmerki, bila sam oduševljena! :)

    1. hvala, sjećam se da sam ja tako haljine prvi put probala u srednjoj školi i baš mi se dopalo.

  19. Sorry about the surgery dear. I wish you quick recovery. On the outfit, I love the concept of a dress over jeans it is beautiful. Kisses

  20. I haven’t tried wearing dress over jeans but you look seriously good, dear! xoxo

  21. I didn't know that you were in hospital, so sorry to hear that operation wasn't successful, I hope that it will be better in autumn.
    Love your outfit, that combinations is really cool and that dress is so lovely!

    Have a wonderful day, beauty!:*

  22. Dear Ivana, I'm very sorry your operation didn't work and you have to have another operation. I'm impressed that you nevertheless don't lost your optimism. All the best to you and that finally you will feel well again after this operation. Yes, I want to know more about your paralysed vocal cord. And about your look: I like it a lot. As you I think that denims and a dress are a perfect combination - only my husband has in this context a different opionion :)
    Take care <3

    1. thank you<3 I'm sure I'll feel better with time.

  23. This is a really cute outfit! You look lovely, dear Ivana! I like the dress over the jeans very much.
    I am sorry to hear from your surgery, especially, that it was not successful. Wish you all the best!!!
    Love, Nadine

  24. It's been a long time since I've seen denim with dresses, it's great here. I am sorry to hear that you were in hospital. I recently just came back to blogging myself, so it's nice to visit your lovely blog space. Wishing you a more successful week and hope the surgery goes better. /Madison

  25. I've never actually tried styling dresses over jeans, but I can imagine it must be such a fun way of combining pieces from your wardrobe to create new looks! I'm so sorry to hear your recent operation didn't go as planned, keeping you in my thoughts Ivana and crossing my fingers for you :) Hope you're having a lovely week so far! x

  26. I'm so sorry to hear that the op wasn't successful- here's hoping it will be better in October. It sounds rather scary. Sending you all the best wishes.

  27. You look amazing. I love layered outfits like this. I will definitely use this outfit to inspiration when the weather gets a little colder!

  28. Definitely a cute outfit! I hope your operation goes smoothly.

  29. I'm sorry to hear about your operation.

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 

Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …


I was thinking about why I like tartan pattern so much, when one reason crossed my mind. I figured that it probably has something to do with the history and the culture behind this particular pattern. After all, I always say that traditional and folklore clothing (be it original or reproduced) carries additional value. Traditional patterns can be such an wonderful source of inspiration. Traditional patters have soul to them, one might say. The history of tartan is particularly interesting. Today we mostly associate tartan with Scotland, but according to some historians, tartan like fabrics were used by ancient Celtic populations spreading across the British Isles as early as the sixth and the eight century BC. Well, that one old pattern for sure! However, even if tartan clothes are really as old as ancient Celts, it is the still Scotland that is responsible for tartan we know today. Did you know that different tartan patterns can represent different Scottish families? Something like …
