Late autumn. I was so looking forward to the crispy and colourful leaves on every step this October. But somehow the colours just went from green to brown without those perfect yellow and red shades. If I tell you the truth I have no idea where this autumn went. I was so busy dealing with some personal things that I haven’t even realized when the leaves fell down. And now, the winter is knocking on the door and I’m more than ready for scarves and hats. November is besides February my least favourite month and I just can’t wait for the happy December to come.
Autumn. That perfect time in every year when the summer says its final goodbye and move to give space to autumn. When it is still warm outside but just chilly enough for jackets, sweaters, scarfs. When you are looking for the sun during the day and than you move to the cozy inside in the evenings. When people start using fireplaces and when tea and cocoa seems reasonable idea. When you are trying to find a perfect cozy bar spot with couches and then you cuddle while looking happy with your mint tea in hand.
I have to admit that this blazer was my go to uniform for the past month or so. It is just getting too cold right now and I might have to say goodbye to it till spring. I love how the length is longer than most of other blazers that I have and this colourful floral print is just a decent amount for those warm autumn days. These shots were taken just before another perfect breakfast date in the capital.
Now I’m taking you back to August, back to the careless and sunny summer days on Hvar island. When I was still on vacations all tanned and careless. I woke up at 5.30 to be at 6.30 all dressed up in the Hvar city on the island ready to shot this look. It is my favourite one and I saved it for last blog post in series Esmara by Heidi Klum for Lidl. I needed a perfect morning light and empty streets, which weren’t so empty at the end and I had a few tourists group stopping and taking photos of me, which is ok, I don’t mind, I just had to politely ask them if they can move and stare from the other side to not be on my shots.Had a lot of fun. Leopard printed dress was another piece in the box of which I wasn’t exactly sure how it is going to work on me but it came out great, what do you think? I felt like coming from a super fancy party walking home when the city is waking up and I sure did look that way, and if I consider look on the faces of random people going by, that’s what they thought too.
Talk to me in flowers, it is easier for me to understand. I love flowers. One of the best things are freshly picked flowers put in a vase to make a room brighter and more happy. Flowers are happiness. That day I decided to go pick up some roses with my bike and after I bought them I got an idea why not shot an outfit with them since I have such a cool wooden basket on my bike. My bike was originally made with a small platform on the front park above the wheel. My dad and brother made a custom wooden crate, which couldn’t came out more perfect. Everyone admire it when I’m driving around. It is perfect for a few bouquets of flowers or some shopping bags.
Electric blue, this is one of my favourite colours. I like how the colour gives “look at me” vibes and yet it is not as bright or sharp as bright pink or orange is. Electric blue goes with everything. You can never go wrong with it; to me it is like wearing black. Only that I don’t like black in particular and it is that way even more perfect. I usually always wear belts with loose fit dresses because I like to give them some structure and since I’m big busted they usually look on me like I’m in 8th month of pregnancy. The belt saves that problem. And yet I wanted to do something different and that’s why I added two belts. This trend was seen on some fashion shows SS17. The dress have balloon like sleeves and that is what makes it so unique and different. The dress can be worn in day or night time at pretty much any occasion you want. It is so versatile. You can combine it with jacket, you can just tie a jeans jacket around your hips, wear it with a coat and over the knee boots, sneakers… Possibilities are endless.
I have never ever worn anything animal printed, until now. I was kind of sold with the dress, shoes and jacket from Esmara by Heidi Klum collection. When I opened the package and saw the leopard prints I was like, oh no, no way I can work with that, but after I tried the things on I liked it. Sure, there is no way I would go all way that way (or maybe, never say never) but in combination with other colours and prints or no prints I really like it. This jacket is a perfect model cut for me, I really love jackets like that and I gave up on zipping long time ago. When I buy a jacket I just buy it to fit me through shoulders and the shape is right, I don’t even bother with zipping any more because it is mission impossible to zip in all the way up (big breasts “problems”). This jacket is perfect length; I’m always up for short ones with a belt, sort of. I decided for simple ripped jeans and black high heels to go with it and to soothe the animal print. I also accessorized with a black tote you have already seen in one of the previous posts.
A more fancy outfit created with Esmara by Heidi Klum collection for Lidl. I shot those on Bled and right after I came from my seaside vacations it started raining like crazy in Slovenia. I had a very limited window to shot these because it started to rain in the middle and we had to run back to the car. For this outfit I chose a fancy black pencil skirt, which is made from such a good material. It is tight but elastic, perfect for every figure. Every woman should have a pencil skirt and killing high heels in her closet. Since I didn’t want a formal or office look I choose metallic jacket from the collection to break seriousness of the skirt. Collection is full of great pieces that can go so well together. Heidi put much effort into this line and it can be seen that she was thinking about endless combinations.
How beautiful this monastery is? It looks like a house from a fairy tail. And it actually is a castle. We crossed this place on our way through the country with Twingo (you can read post here) and I had to stop to take a little walk around this place and took some shots. A baroque church with monastery leaves a big impression. This monastery is located in Olimje which is a part of the Municipality of Podčetrtek in eastern Slovenia. Olimje is famous for its spa treatments and it is not far from Rogaška Slatina which is also known for its spa and thermal waters. Many tourists from Slovenia and from abroad visit this place because of it’s beauty. The reason I visited it is because it was on my way to Jelenov Greben. Jelenov Greben offers a unique experience of hanging with deer’s who live around property freely and you can feed them (no worries, if you don’t have anything with you, the owner will bring a big bucket of corn).
I’m sure this cardigan will be my loyal companion in upcoming cold days when I get back home from sunny Italy. I also got it in electric blue, the colour that I absolutely adore. I wanted to create a relaxing Sunday outfit with the new Esmara by Heidi Klum collection for Lidl (coming to stores on 18th of September) for a quick trip. We went to Vogel, a beautiful area in the Slovenian mountains. Even if it was still August it was pretty chilly up there and this cardigan kept me warm. How beautiful are the views from up here overlooking the mountains and the lake down there? Can’t wait for the winter to come, so I’ll be skiing here again! Well, back to the outfit. I combined the cardigan with huge tote, white sneakers and an electric blue scarf from the same collection. I realy like how everything together is very autumn like but still colourful and relaxed, because who wants to be all tight up on a Sunday afternoon. I really like how Heidi created so many useful things with this collection. This bag is perfection, since we like to carry a bunch of things with us all the time. And especially now when it can still get warm outside and you need a jacket that you have nowhere to put to and you can just throw it in your bag. Plus, it’s made of leather.
