How To Style a Ruffle Skirt? Awesome's Girls Club

Ruffles are here to stay! Is it just me or have printed ruffle skirts really been trending this summer? I keep seeing printed ruffled skirts around, especially in midi length. I really like this trend so I prepared my own styling suggestion. My outfit proposal of the day is all about styling a ruffle skirt so it's suitable for every day wear, but it still looks a bit dressed up (which is basically something I'm always trying to achieve because I like to feel a bit dressed up). Anyhow, I paired this ruffle skirt with a printed t- shirt I got from my aunt. I do like the print: 'Awesome's girls club'. It's sounds like a club I would like to join! Perhaps I should start one? What do you say? My aunt (who doesn't speak English btw), had actually asked the sale's girl to translate the writing before she bought this tee. Isn't that sweet? You know, I'd say that printed tees are a great way to make any outfit more casual and daytime appropriate.  Still, since I wanted this outfit to feel feminine and chic, I added a pair of elegant sandals and a fancy bag to the mix. Printed t shirts look lovely worn with feminine items, because that always created a bit of style mix. Plus, I think the colours work quite well in this one. What do you think? 

I'm always amazed by what a difference a simple walk can make. For me, personally it is one of easiest ways to deal with stress. A simple walk! It costs nothing and supposedly it has many benefits. Our bodies are made for motion, doctors say. A sedentary lifestyle is linked with many health risks. It is incredible that these days we seem to have forgotten about the befits of a simple walk. Strolling around can be both a physical activity and a way to relax. What better way to rest our eyes from screens? Walking is such a simple and democratic pleasure. As I have I just pointed out, a simple walk is more than a pleasure, it's also good for our health. A short walk does everyone good. Busy is a word we all often use these ways. One thing is certain and that is that life waits for no one. We must never become so busy that we forget to live our own life. That is why taking the time to simply breathe and/or stroll around is so important. 

Because life goes on, with or without us. Time flies by. It doesn’t care whether we’re not in the mood for something. Every thought, every action, every decision, every choice we make- those are the things that shape our lives. The show must go on, as they say. So, does life. It goes on. When you come to your senses after being shocked with one bad news or the other, you realize there is comfort in life itself. Comfort in simply breathing. Comfort in seeing that Summer is just as beautiful as always. In seeing that its colours are still pure magic. No matter what chaos might be going in your head, there is always beauty. The nature is still beautiful and so is the city- if you choose it to be. You can still find comfort in it. It is calming- in a way classical music is calming. In a majestic sort of way. Life goes on. There is still kindness in the world. Humanity is not entirely lost yet. Yesterday it seemed all is lost, today life seems worth living again and the sun is out. I’m going out too now, to greet the sun. 

t-shit: gift, skirt: bought at Azel store, bag: bought at Borsa store, sandals: bought at Retro shoes store



  1. Ruffles are one of my favorite style details because they are such a lovely way to add a touch of feminine flair. That is a lovely skirt and the way you styled it is so effortlessly fun and chic. Yes I agree that a simple walk can do wonders. It's actually one of the things I like to do to feel re-energized or need to clear my mind.

  7. You are so right---a walk can breath new life in must be those endorphins?

  27. I love your positive message Ivana, I completely agree with you that a simple walk does wonder sometimes. I love evening walk and whenever I find me stressful and in pain I took help with this method. Listening music also a nice idea to De-stress ourselves especially the Sufi music which touches our soul. Anyways, coming to your outfit, I love ruffles skirt in midi length form. But what does the matter is the way you styled it with that lovely cold shoulder top. You are looking so pretty and the editing you have done with the pics is just amazing.

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…
