Today I'm going to share 3 outfits that I have worn recently but haven't managed to share with you until now. This spring, one of the trends I've been really into is the trend of bold patterns. If you ask me, printed skirts are a great take on this trend. I wear skirts all year around but they seem to be especially appropriate for spring time. So, today I'm sharing 3 outfits with printed skirts.
OUTFIT NO.1: YELLOW CHECKERED SKIRT AND SOCK ANKLE BOOTS
I already posted about the 3 ways to wear a yellow checkered skirt here, but here is another proposal. How do you like it? If you are looking for more ideas on how to style a yellow checkered skirt, you can have a look at these old posts (here and here). This time I paired this skirt with a vintage yellow blazer. You'll probably see me wear this yellow blazer again because I really like it. Anyone else into padded shoulder blazers? Do you find the padded jacket retro feel cute or is it just me? Despite being a capital swimmer in the past and having broad shoulders as a result, I always loved padded shoulder jackets and blazers. What can I say? I love big shoulders. Anyhow, I finished this vintage styling with some retro style boots. The boots aren't actually vintage, they might appear like they are because of the retro style chunky heel. Do you like sock boots? I do like this pair, but they're kind of hard to pull on. They are very comfy to walk in, though. I actually wear boots pretty often. I think boots are a totally underestimated choice for spring time. As soon as it gets warm enough, I plan to wear boots with bare legs. I think boots are the perfect choice for those 'warm' but not 'too warm' summer days. What do you think?
Isn't it always lovely when you find a new spot? The area surrounding Mostar is so beautiful. That is why I love the change of season. With every change of season, I feel like we have travelled to another country. Herzegovina in spring time is especially beautiful. A week or so ago, we went for a little drive. Before we stopped at river Bunica recreational site, we took a stroll here. Isn't this area absolutely gorgeous? Look at all that greenery! There are so many rivers and creeks in this area, I don't even know all of their names. But I know one thing, being around water always makes me happy. I love rivers, lakes, creeks and all that. What about you? Do you like nature?

OUTFIT NO. 2: PARSLEY PRINT SKIRT WORN WITH A BLAZER
I already worn this skirt here. That outfit was pretty similar to this one, but here I styled this parsley print skirt with a striped cardigan and a black blazer. I always appreciate a bit of mix of prints. I had this striped cardigan for a long time. A black classically cut blazer on the other hand, is a great way to dress up any outfit. I had this blazer tailor made, so the fit is obviously perfect. I wear it quite often. What about you? Do you have any tailor made items? Do you prefer a fitted look or an oversize one? Perhaps you like both? How do you like this outfit?

The book I'm holding in my hand is a Pulitzer winning novel that lived up to its hype. All the King's Man is a true classic. I already reviewed it on my other blog, so if you're interested in reading my book review, you can do so here. All I will say is that I really recommend this one. It is not an easy read, especially in the beginning but it's worth the effort. What are you reading right now? I'm finishing up one science fiction novel, it's all right, but nothing special.
OUTFIT NO.3: BLACK AND WHITE CHECKERED SKIRT
The last outfit that I'm sharing today is a black and white one (minus the accessories). There is something timeless about the elegance of black and white. I don't wear black and white outfits that often, but when I do, I always feel great. Perhaps I should try styling these kind of outfits more often. Anyhow, this was one very comfy casual outfit. I had this mini checkered skirt for ages. I think it looks pretty cute worn with the leather jacket. I wore a similar outfit (with a yellow skirt) but I didn't mind the repetition and the deja vu feeling. When it comes to windy spring days, a leather jacket is always a safe option.

Spring is definitely the season in which we need to take a moment to appreciate the little things. Often it is the season when we want to do everything at once. Spring is the time of reawakening. Many will say it is also a time to be active. Most of us are all trying to get back into shape, plan our summer, start new projects and get our groove on. However, enjoying the moment is something that is equally important. Taking the time to appreciate the beauty around us. Spring is the time of blossoms and no blossom lasts forever. So, let's remember to take the time and appreciate the beauty of nature and life itself, while we still can. Who knows what the tomorrow brings?
