How To Mix Prints - Ethnic & Stripes

Skirt and sweater Forever 21, boots Aldo, bag Danier, jacket Zara, faux fur infinity scarf Chapters

You probably already know if you follow my blog, that I love mixing prints. I lover the effect it creates and the unlimited options you get to play up your wardrobe. If you want to try out this trend but you are not sure what to do, start off with something easy and safe. I find that stripes and polka-dots are the easiest print to incorporate with others. First think about mixing prints that are in similar shades. Try it out in front of the mirror and see how you feel. Just be brave, getting used to new things is not always instantaneous. Some other tested and true options are stripes and plaid or tartan, stripes and leopard, mixing different check patterns but again keep the latter in the same colour family. In Monday`s post I mixed checks, stripes and polkadots. Today I opted for stripes and ethnic print or world traveler as they now call it.  I challenge you to try this out. Make sure to let me know if you were successful in taking yourself out of your comfort zone. You can leave a comment on my blog, email me, tweet, tag me on Facebook or Instagram. Looking forward to it! Ciao!

Ako pratite moj blog znate vec da obozavam da mesam razlicite dezene u odeci. Ako zelite da se isprobate u ovome ali niste sigurni tacno sta se uklapa jedon s drugim, dacu vam nekoliko vec isprobanih primera. Po mom misljenju, pruge i tufne su definitvno dva od najlaksih printova za kombinovanje. Pocnite prvo sa mesanjem printova ali u bojama slicnih nijansi i bojame koje pripadaju istoj grupi. Isprobavajte vase kombinacije ispred ogledala i vidite kako se osecate u njima. Nemojte gubiti lako hrabrost jer navika na promene nije cesto momentalna. Mozda ce vam trebati vise vremena da se usavrsite. Ako vec ne zelite da eksprerimentisete i zelite da se koristite samo vec isprobanim primerima, onda su tu uvek kombinacija pruga i karo dezena, pruga i leopard printa, razlkiciti karo dezeni jedni s drugima ali da pak budu u slicnim nijansama. Pogledajte kako sam ja takodje pomesala karo, pruge i tufnice u outfitu ove sedmice. Drage moje dajem vam sada jedan zadatak, a to je da se isprobate u mesanju printova (ako to vec uveliko ne radite) i izadjete malo iz svoje svakodnevne i sigurne uniforme. Obavezno mi javite ako vam je poslo za rukom i kako ste se osecale.  Mozete mi se javiti putem Tvitera, Facebooka, Instagrama, ostaviti komentar na blogu ili pak poslati email. Jedva cekam! Cao!

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

Pants Zara, jacket Zara, sneakers Forever21, bag unknown (Winners), dress unknown (similar), ankle boots PrettyLittleThings

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Lace SheIn Dress & Purple OTK Boots

Dress SheIn (size M), bag SheIn, boots Ebay These boots may be one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time. I know that at first they may not appear like an item that you will wear much, but they go so perfectly with most dresses and skirts, but are also thin enough that you may wear then under pants. It’s such a perfect statement piece and it will make any outfit pop. I love the purple especially but I’m also looking to purchase a beige/tan pair, and pink and …. 😊 Even the material is not very sensitive to dirt which I thought it would be. This is an old outfit I wore in late spring this year but never got to post it on the blog, so I decided to do it today. I think this outfit would also be great for a New Years party. Why always go for sparkle on New Years? Instead, make a statement with hot boots and beautiful, feminine dress.
Ciao!

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…
