Touch of silver


The other day, my mum asked me why I'm always in black ... now, when I'm pregnant ... I don't think that I'm always in black but I think I've learned a thing or two during my first pregnancy.
The thing is, with time, you can't hide your baby bump (and most definitely you don't have to) but you just have to choose the colors and patterns more carefully and wisely. It's just the same when you generally with certain type of clothes want (and can) hide a certain part of your body that you don't like very much. Don't get me wrong, I love my baby bump but let's be honest, it wouldn't look good with cropped top or a tight red mini dress.
So, maybe you'll remember that in one of my posts from this spring I told you the story about me buying a silver top during my first pregnancy and ended up looking as a huge alien. It just didn't look good. I remember also trying on a dress that had a very aggressive pattern (also during the first pregnancy) and I looked ten times bigger than I was (and the dress was size S) ... So, my point is ... if you have quite a baby bump (as I do now ... I'm not talking about first 20 weeks), try to avoid aggressive patterns and colors. Still, you can always "spice up" your combo with some cute details (necklaces, colorful shoes or scarves) as I did here with silver shoes and necklace and short leather blazer. What are your thoughts about this look?

  1. Meni je uvijek lijepo vidjeti trudnicu, pa kako god bila obučena, mada se slažem da bi svakako bizarno bilo vidjeti je u kratkom topu zimi (kao što mi je jednom prijateljica pričala da je vidjela neku djevojku ). No, svakako većina žena ne želi izgledati posebno 'veliko' u tom periodu, pa ima smisla odabrati nešto manje živih uzoraka, nešto sofisticiranije....ali opet sve je stvar ukusa. Da bi se vidjelo kako nam šta stoji najbolje je probati, šteta što sam ja po tom pitanju strašno lijena.

    Meni je ova kombinacija presavršena..baš je elegatna i bezvremenska, a posebno mi se sviđaju te srebrne cipelice...ne znam zašto , ali obožavam srebrne cipele. Ogrlica je isto divna...i narukvica.

  2. Meni je lijepo vidjeti trudnicu neovisno o tome da li je u trenirci (sportskom) izdanju ili elegantna ali mi nije lijepo kada se neke znaju uvlaciti u neke minijaturne opravice ili kad jos krenes oticati (ljeti pogotovo) a ona u stikli i ja patim dok je samo gledam :) Ali da, tko voli neka izvoli ... :)
    Hvala ti na lijepim rijecima!

  3. I šta sad da ti kažem? Da bolje ne može? E pa ne može iako znam već da ti uvek iznova i iznova pomeraš tu granicu ;) Nemam reči koliko izgledaš prelepo i nekako moćno i mnogo mi je slatko što nosiš ogrlicu :) Cipelice su savršene. Vidiš, nikad nisam razmišljala o odeći za trudnice u tom smislu, boje, printovi i ostalo ali pretpostavljam da si u pravu. U svakom slučaju, ovi tvoji postovi daju svu moguću inspiraciju za ideje o odeći za trudnice a vala i za one koje to nisu ;)

    1. Joj, hvala ti Tijanice! Ogrlicu jako volim jer koliko je jednostavna toliko i nije i zato mi je bas po gustu! Ni ja nisam razmisljala toliko do same trudnoce u kojoj sam dosta, na pogreskama, naucila... s ovom sam ipak nesto pametnija a i kreativnija (u prvoj sam samo kukala i trazila po maternity odjelima a danas ih zaobilazim u velikom luku osim za neke komade koje moras tamo kupiti poput traperica s pasicom)...

  4. Ne znam da li sam dovoljno objektivna, ali ovo mi je jedan od tvojih najboljih outfiteva od kad te pratim!
    Jako sofisticiran, zenstven i savrseno minimalistican. Istina, slazem se u svemu sto si rekla da treba biti pazljiv sa biranjem boja, krojeva i uzoraka ukoliko zelimo prekriti neki dio svog tijela ili ga ne naglasiti na "krivi" nacin.
    Mislim da si jako, JAKO stylish trudnica i sad se jos vise sramim svojih outfit-eva kad sam bila trudna prije 6 godina, to su stvarno bili da prostis "babski" look-ovi :D

    1. Hvala ti, dragicka moja! Uvijek si tako divna... drago mi je da ti se toliko svidja a moram priznati da i meni spada u draze "elegantnije" kombinacije!
      Nemoj biti toliko gruba prema sebi... ne vjerujem da su bili "bapski" a i da jesu, imas jos vremena za popravni ;)

  6. Ciao Ivana! Sono d'accordo con te, credo sia una cosa applicabile in generale, forse è per questo che anche io prediligo solitamente il nero o comunque stame e colori "soft". Sei stupenda con questo vestito, adoro il tocco silver delle scarpe e della collana, un look perfetto da lookbook!:) Un bacio cara :**

  12. Već sam te nahvalila na Instagramu, totalno si mi predivna, elegantna i naprosto savršena ovdje. Sjajno mi je pratiti kako ti se stil razvija jer mislim da stvarno ideš u nekom super smjeru i veselim se svim budućim outfitevima :)) Dugo nisam vidjela ovako stylish trudnicu :**

  13. My dear Ivana, you look wonderful! And I agree, too big patterns or aggressive colours can't reach what you made so successful with this outfit - looking elegant and really really beautiful <3 It's interesting but I know what you mean with this huge patterns as I sometimes feel exactly the same although I'm not pregnat. You know really how to style and I can imagine your mum is impressed but not able to say this in words. Wish you a wonderful and happy Christmas week!

  19. Potpuno se slazem, vjerujem da treba "paziti" kakve printove itd. se oblace kad je neko trudan. Mislim da si ti uspjela iskombinovati nesto predivno, bas mi se dopada!
