Printed Skirts For Spring: 3 Outfits (+ My Reflections About Spring)

Today I'm going to share 3 outfits that I have worn recently but haven't managed to share with you until now. This spring, one of the trends I've been really into is the trend of bold patterns. If you ask me, printed skirts are a great take on this trend. I wear skirts all year around but they seem to be especially appropriate for spring time. So, today I'm sharing 3 outfits with printed skirts.



OUTFIT NO.1:  YELLOW CHECKERED SKIRT AND SOCK ANKLE BOOTS


I already posted about the 3 ways to wear a yellow checkered skirt here, but here is another proposal. How do you like it? If you are looking for more ideas on how to style a yellow checkered skirt, you can have a look at these old posts (here and here). This time I paired this skirt with a vintage yellow blazer. You'll probably see me wear this yellow blazer again because I really like it. Anyone else into padded shoulder blazers? Do you find the padded jacket retro feel cute or is it just me?  Despite being a capit…

Lilac for Spring + DIY Project of the Day (Princess Handmade Bookmark)

Ultra violet is the colour of the year, so with that mind I went shopping in my closet again. I found this DIY statement necklace with purple stones (worn previously here). What did I wear with this creation of mine? On this lovely sunny spring day, I wore it with a lilac sweater over a floral print dress. A bit of floral print is always welcome. I finished the look with a green (chunky heel) pair of shoes and a small brown bag. It was a warm day, so no jacket was needed. This was a very simple, spring appropriate styling.  Do you like this trend of chunky heel? What kind of retro style shoes do you like?











I took advantage of International Economy Fair Mostar to buy some books. I bought 10 books for 10 euros, which is a pretty good bargain. All of the authors I bought are Croatian, with the exception of Ratzinger. I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't read anything from Joseph Ratzinger before. Better late than never, right? Are you a book person? Do you like to read? What are y…

Red For Spring: How To Style Flare Sleeves With a Mix Print Skirt?

Hello, how are you? I'm sharing a new outfit with you today. To great this new week, I'm wearing something new and something old (but nothing borrowed). The new item I'm wearing is this beautiful hand made birch tree hair clasp. I'm a big fan of hair clasps, but I've never owned a traditionally made one! I didn't know this until a year or so ago, but birch bark has been used in Russia to make accessories and household items for centuries. I love hand made items, and while you can find traditionally hand made wood items here, I haven't really seen anything similar before because this wood carving technique is unique to Russia. I got this birch tree hair accessory as a gift from a fellow blogger Natalia Lianlina. You can visit her wonderful blog In The Writer's Closet here. I'm not sure can you see the birch tree hair accessory in the photographs because I wore a side braid, but you'll have the chance to have a closer look soon enough.

Making Of a Pencil Drawing + Two Fashion Illustrations (Special Occasion Dresses: Blue and Purple)

Hello there! How's life been treating you? Are you enjoying Spring? I thought that today I might show you some of my art. I don't know about you, but I always love to see the 'making of' tutorials, videos and posts. I always enjoy seeing the effort that goes into creation of anything. My fascination with seeing the creative process is not limited to art, I love seeing the 'making of' of just about anything, but creative creations can be especially interesting. Today I will share with you the 'making of' a (coloured) pencil portrait drawing, done in fashion illustration style. I hope that you will find it interesting.  In addition, I will share with you two coloured pencils fashion illustrations. I've been working on my developing my art skills a lot lately. I know I've been saying that a lot, but really it's true. I've been spending a lot of time drawing and illustration. Maybe it is the spring that makes me feel so creative? Scroll dow…
