Prošla baba s kolačima

Literal translation: 

The old lady with cakes has gone away.

The English equivalent is:

To miss the boat.

For example:

Sad se sjetio da želi kupiti jeftine avionske karte, ali prošla baba s kolačima.


He has just decided to buy the cheap airline tickets, but he has missed the boat.
