How To Wear a Baker Boy Hat In a Casual Way? A Spring Outfit Proposal


How to style a baker boy hat? Today I'm presenting you with my casual monochrome outfit proposal. Why casual? Simply because I dressed having a long walk in mind. Why monochrome? As much as I love colour, I thought that keeping my outfit black and white would help make it more elegant. I wanted to create a casual outfit that will be simple and chic. Baker boy hat (IMHO) falls into the category of  statement hats. This hat is one of Spring trends, but it can be hard to style, because it is a bit on the 'loud' side. Baker boy hat /newsboy cap comes with a boyish/rock chic vibe, so to make it more girl appropriate, I paired it with a pair of vintage white jeans, a vintage white turtleneck and a vintage pepita blazer. What do you think? Do you like this outfit? Would you like to see another outfit proposal with this hat? Let me know in the comments.

Recently I wrote a rather long article about the benefits of shopping our own closets (here). Today I'm living this philosophy by wearing vintage items from my closet. I have actually had this biker boy hat in my closet for a long time. You see, I bought this hat for next to nothing about four years ago and added a leather decoration to make it more 'biker chic'. I love customizing clothes, but you already knew that, didn't  you? A bit of DIY attitude can take us a long way, and adding a personal touch is always a good way to refresh our clothing items. When we are re-wearing clothes, it is always good to throw in something new. This helps to keep things more interesting. The only 'new' thing I'm sporting here is this black and white pair of sneakers. My husband bought these sneakers for me during my prolonged stay in a hospital last year and this was actually the first chance I got to wear them. I'm not very keen of sneakers, I'm afraid. To be honest, I'm a  bit of a heel addict, but once in a while I will opt for a more comfortable pair of shoes.

 A Spring Outfit Proposal #medjugorje



Now, a bit about the location for this post. You probably recognize it by now. The two of us are regular visitors to Međugorje, we probably head there once or twice a month on average. In case you're interested in seeing my precious visits to Medjugorje and/or would like to see more photographs of this place, I'm going to leave you links to my old posts from 2013 (here, here, here, here), 2014 (here), 2015 (here, here) 2016 (here, here, here, here), 2017 (here). Gosh, I really do spend a lot of time in this little village.

biker boy cap: old+ diy
sweater: vintage
blazer: vintage
jeans: vintage
sneakers: no name





 Medjugorje is usually crowded with tourists this time of the year, but fortunately when we got there, it was relatively peaceful. Perhaps because it was still early. Anyhow, we had a lovely walk, had a cup of over priced coffee and drove back. I love visiting Medjugorje, it's such a serene and beautiful area, bathed in sunshine most of the time, so what is there not to love? Expect pricey coffee? Anyhow, I'm thinking about putting together a little insider's guide to Medjugorje, so let me know if you would be interested in reading something like that. There are actually quite a few wonderful and affordable restaurant in Medjugorje, so if you want to know more, I could make a little gastro guide for you.

  8. Ciao Ivana. Sono stata a Medjugorje qualche anno fa come turista. È davvero un luogo speciale e penso che un giorno (forse con i gemelli) ci tornerò.
    Bello l'outfit. Semplice e basico. Il cappello ti sta davvero bene.
    Un bacio,

  12. Dear Ivana, I see you shopped again very successfully in your own closet! I love your look with the baker boy hat and you did right to wear this monochrome look with it! Maybe next time you'll show this hat with a dress? Looking forward to it. And it is wonderful that the place you visited was not that crowdy as usually as it seems to be a fantastic place. Enjoy this Sunday!

  21. I wish I could pull off hats like you! I'm just not a hat person. I love them on others though.

    I like your casual outfit, I have some shoes similar to yours, COnverse, and I love them so much, perfect for casual outfits like this :) I do like this place you visit, it's beautiful.


    Hope you are having a great weekend! We had a busy one, some Church Online people flew over from the US so the weekend was full of activities :)

  23. Hey Ivana, I couldn't come here due to my bad health. I had missed a lot friends blogger posts. I'm so happy to see your outfit post as I was looking for your outfit for spring. This outfit is so beautiful and decent. I love how you have kept the color of this outfit graceful and the way you have edited the pics is wonderful. I love the picture with shadow pics idea. You are looking so cute <3
    Will be more busy in the coming days due to a visit to my parents and in laws. What about you? Will you go anywhere for holidays?
    Have a happy Monday :)

  26. Ivana, I really like that you show us your outfit photos in real scenarios, is like a win win because we can see your style but also knowing a little more about the places you frequent.

    As I told you in previous posts I really like the idea of shopping our own closets and reuse garments from the past or appeal to DIY tutorials, there are many ways we can get fashionable without spending too much money and that's one of the best things we can do for our pockets but also for the planet ;)

    Love everything about this look, is very Chanel by the way, and the hat is definitely the HIGHTLIGHT of the season, have seen them in a lot of Instagram accounts and blogs and I'm sure we will still seeing this for some months so use it as much as you can, is super cool :D

  29. Talking about closet shopping, I do that too! And I enjoy it. I've not been shopping for clothes since forever and I'd like to keep it that way for as long as possible because I have tons already and some are just stuck somewhere in the corner waiting to be de-cluttered. I really love this baker boy style hat as I've seen it around but due to the weather here and my penchant for avoiding wearing anything over my head, I get to appreciate it on you. I feel like it is quite chic the way you styled it in this monochrome casual outfit. And yes to the sneakers! I'd wear those because you know me and my feet. Hahah. I didn't know they sell overpriced coffee in a small village. Please do a gastro entry because you know I love food. You look really beautiful appreciating Medjugorje (I do not know how to pronounce this!) And yes to the blazer too because it's so pretty! Take good care my closet-shopper friend :D

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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.
