How to style a faux leather coat in a casual way? Transitional item to have in one's closet #1 (outfit proposal of the day, #casual styling)


How to style a faux leather coat in a casual way? Here is my suggestion.  I paired this faux leather coat with a pink skirt and biker boots. Obviously, a faux leather coat makes for a good choice during the seasonal transitional period. Faux leather is lighter than leather, but it still provides warmth. Faux leather jackets are a wonderful option for the same reason. If it gets too hot and you want to take your jacket or coat off, it is always easier to carry around an item made of faux leather than real leather. Real leather is usually quite heavy, especially quality leather items.

 As long as I'm trying to make a contribution to this topic, I might add that I like both the 'off the shoulder' coat and  'over the shoulder' trend. That is how I wore this faux leather coat, 'over the shoulders. Perhaps this trend doesn't work when it's extremely cold, I think it works best when weather becomes transitional. You can also do it when it's cold but you need to layer really well. 

Some says these two trends are totally unpractical and ridiculous, but I think it depends on how you wear it. I'm not the type to go out of the house without a coat or a jacket, unless it's like 20 degrees Celsius outside. So, for me this trend works just fine. When I get too warm, I just throw my jacket/coat over my shoulders. I've done this sort of thing before, it is not like I'm doing it because it is trendy. Do you like these trends? What do you think about draping a jacket or a coat over the shoulders?

As far as the location is concerned, we're in Croatia again.  To be more precise, we're back in Split city. Beach Trstenik, only one bay away from marine Zenta that was featured in this post and only one bay away from bay Znjan (featured in this post). If I remember well, these photographs were taken in transition between Autumn to Winter, but I think this outfit works just as well when it comes to transition from Winter to Spring.

I didn't wear any make up, sorry but I'm kind of lazy that way. In addition, I don't plan outfit posts anymore, perhaps my blog is not so much focused on them anymore but anyhow I think there is enough of place for all of us in the blogging world, those of us who plan outfits and those who don't plan that much anymore. At the moment, I just have my photographs taken when I get the chance and share them when I remember to do it.

 I don't know if you can tell that I look a bit different here, but in the case you can, I need to explain why I looked different that I usually do. When these photographs were taken,  I was underweight because of health problems (related to Chron's disease). In the meantime I've gained the 20 pounds I lost, so I'm back to my old weight again. My weight is normal now and I didn't experience any weight loss since my resection surgery at the end of 2017. I didn't buy any new clothes because I knew I will probably manage to return to my old weight if all goes well. A lot of people who suffer from Chron's disease struggle with weight loss, and sometimes there is nothing we can do about it. So, if you notice any weight changes, it's probably due to my health problems.

I feel like today we are under pressure to dislike our body no matter how it looks like, it's like we are encouraged to look for flaws in our appearance. I'm not giving in to that, I don't consider myself particularly beautiful but I honestly feel good in my skin. I try to keep fit and that's about it. I don't have a habit of examining myself looking for flaws as I don't see the point in that. I know who I am and it is not likely that I will ever valuate myself in such a physical way. Sure, I like to dress up and look fabulous, just as much as anyone with an interest in fashion, I see no harm in that and I think that fashion can actually be empowering but I can feel just as confident wearing a casual styling as a dressed up one. Fashion is a great way to have fun, though. I love seeing fashion forward outfits and sometimes I like to wear them too. I don't think one needs to look a particular way to have fun with fashion.

One thing that puzzles me for example, if when I hear people complain about having long hands, because why should that be a problem? I love having long hands! These things are so practicable. I can always reach everything. I can hug two people at once, hence avoiding the awkward social situations where it seems like you are giving a preference to just one person. Bottom line is that long hands can be fun. It's all how you look at it. For me, they are the best. Besides, almost all tall and tallish people have long hands. If you are tall, you are likely to have long extremities (meaning long hands and legs). When we are tall, we are tall because we have long extremities, it other words it's perfectly normal. So, all of you people who feel bad about it, don't. It's actually quite common. Almost all tall and tallish people are build that way. 








God bless Mediterranean winters, I say. No matter the season, you can count of sunny and warm days. I have leaned to love sunny and cold days, but I have to admit that warm winter days have their perks. I guess that's one of the benefits of living in a Mediterranean climate. We have had a bit of cold recently, but with Spring arriving any moment, we are expecting a lot of sunny and warm days. Have you stared planning your Spring outfits? I have and it's been a lot of fun. I'm not planning to do any shopping this Spring, I think I will just shop my closet. I might buy something if I really like it, I'm not on a shopping ban or anything like that. I'm just not into shopping as much as some people are. As I said, I think there is a space for all of us in the blogging world, for shopaholics and for those who prefer shopping their closets. All approaches to personal style, including those in between, are interesting in their own way.

  2. A me piace molto la tendenza di portare trench o cappotti appoggiati sulle spalle, è vero è poco pratica e devi star continuamente attenta che non cadano, ma la trovo una trovata così efforlessly chic!
    Bellissime foto Ivana, sei davvero molto carina e la tua gonna è deliziosa!
    Baci!

  4. I'm like you and I typically never leave the house without a jacket. A faux leather coat is such a wonderful transition piece because it works well to keep you warm and it can be versatile in that it can be easily dressed up or down. Fabulous styling and coat!

  6. I agree! So many people put too much pressure on themselves. We need to embrace with what we have. It's what makes us unique! I love your skirt. The color and style really look great on you Ivana. I haven't mastered wearing jackets & coats on the shoulders. People are starting to wear them that way.

  7. I am so sorry to hear about your Chron's disease dear. It's good to hear that you are doing well now. I always though that you had really great style whether you were wearing a casual or dressy outfit. You look lovely in this faux leather coat. Thank you for sharing pics of beautiful Croatia. I love seeing your photos!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…

SUMMER TO AUTUMN OUTFITS FEATURING A VINTAGE BLACK MAXI DRESS

Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…
