HOW TO WEAR CONTRASTING PRINTS? OUTFIT PROPOSAL PLUS BOOK REVIEWS

I love contrasting prints. It's just so much fun to wear an all printed outfit. Not matching prints are even more playful and fashion forward. Leopard print looks pretty interesting paired with a Nordic print, I'd say. It's the kind of print combination that one doesn't expect and that is what makes it interesting I'd say. My outfit proposal of the day consists of: a pair of leopard leggings, a printed burgundy turtleneck, a burgundy mini bag and a pair of heels. All of these items I have had for a while. Now, to be completely honest I'm pretty sure I wore something over this when I went out. I did wear this combo (leopard leggings and a printed turtleneck) before, but usually with a striped mini skirt or an olive vest. It's a bit too much on its own, I'd say. I don't typically wear leggings on its own, not unless I'm going hiking somewhere where I know I won't meat a soul. The only outfit with a leggings and top I remember sharing on this …

HOW TO STYLE DRESSES WITH BLAZERS FOR EARLY SPRING? OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Today we'll talk a bit about styling dresses in early spring. Generally speaking my advice would be to wear your dresses with blazers and lighter jackets/coats. If it's still cold, you could also add tights and boots to your outfit. That's what I've been doing lately. One great thing about spring is that you can style all kinds of dresses in this season, even summer ones. You can always layer to make your outfit more warm and cozy. To dress up your spring dresses, opt for dressier shoes and fancy bags. Similarly, if your want your feminine spring outfits to be more day time appropriate, you can always dress down your dresses with sneakers and (denim/leather/utility) jackets. Alternatively, you can also wear sporty or casual dresses to get that relaxed vibe. Not only is there a dress for every kind of style, there is a way to make almost any dress fit your style. It's all about figuring what works for you.
Today's outfit proposal for an early spring styling has…

A SHORT VISIT TO SPLIT CITY/ WHERE TO DINE AND WHAT TO DO?

Today it is time to show you a few photographs from my visit to Split city last February. I had planned to visit Split this March as well, but so far I haven't managed to do it. That doesn't mean that I won't. March isn't over yet, right? Anyhow, today I'll show you what I did in Split last February. I already told you about visiting my family in Jelsa, island Hvar, and now the spotlight is on Split.

Do you remember that grey DIY dress I showed to you last autumn? That was the first 'real' dress I made (using a sewing machine). Before this one, I had only made a couple of summer dress and I sewed those by hand. This was the first proper dress I made and I absolutely love it. Bellow you can only see it partly (as I styled it with a faux fur and leather coat and boots), so I'll include a prior photo of it as well. 


This is how I styled it recently. These two photographs were taken in front of a buildings that has recently been turned into an university b…

EARLY SPRING OUTFIT FOR A DAY SPENT STROLLING THE MOSTAR CITY

Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges. 
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays  as intensely bec…
