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.
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.

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.
