How To Mix Prints - Ethnic & Stripes

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?

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…

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…

Hello lovelies! It’s been a while since I shared my last post. As you may know, I’m expecting twins in early August and so far my pregnancy has not been an easy one. Babies are doing very well but momma is exhausted 😊. I apologize for gaps between my posts.
Now is better time then every to share more about my trip through Italy. You may be planning your next European trip for the summer so stay tuned for more to come. Last I shared with you a post about a lake town Riva Del Garda. Today, I’m sharing one of the cutest places you will encounter in Italy. I’m talking about Cinque Terre. It’s a region of 5 small fishing towns on a rugged Italian coastline, in the north of the country. They used to be very isolated by their geography, but today numerous tourists come to visit.  You may notice resemblance to Positano in the south of Italy, only these 5 towns a…

Hello lovelies. I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Hopefully, those of you who are moms got to be pampered and spoiled by your kids and partners. I hope you also showed your love to your moms and thanked them for everything they have done for you. We should be doing it every day, but it’s really nice to have a day dedicated to these amazing women. I know how much my mother means to me and she certainly deserves every day to be dedicated just to her. I’m sure all of you feel the same way about your mothers too. Even the sun came out to shine and make Mother’s day even more special. I made sure to go bare legged to welcome the warmth and the sun. Today’s outfit is a cute spring look, easy to pull off. Black and white stripes always make a statement and a little pop of colour just makes the outfit complete. I spent the day out mostly and o…
