Printed Skirts For Spring: 3 Outfits (+ My Reflections About Spring)

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.


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?

Printed Skirts For Spring: Outfit Round up and My Reflection About Spring

Printed Skirts For Spring: Outfit Round up and My Reflection About Spring

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?

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.



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?




  1. Oh very cute style darling

  2. Molto carini ed originali tutti e te i tuoi outfit, Ivana!
    Il mio preferito è il terzo, mi piace molto l'accoppiata della minigonna a quadretti con la giacca di pelle!
    Però penso che quello che ti doni di più sia il secondo, quel tipo di gonna ti sta a pennello e ti valorizza molto!

  3. I agree that each change of season can make your surroundings feel so different but it makes sense since temperature really has such an influence over everything in our environment. Spring has been late to arrive allover it seems but perhaps that should make us cherish and enjoy it all the more right. I will definitely have to fight the impulse to do everything haha. All 3 of your outfits are lovely!

  4. Amazing landscapes! I love everything from your outfits. xoxo

  5. Such cute outfits, I'm loving the skirt in the 2nd look! Happy Spring!

    Love from Costa Rica,

  11. 3 very lovely outfits, Ivana and I love how the addition of a blazer dress up the outfits. I don't have any padded jacket, it gives me bad 80s vibes. LOL!

  12. I love all the three outfits - the yellow blazer with checkered skirt, as well as your 2nd outfit are classics! And the black outfit is so bold and energized, rock on!! The nature of your country is just wonderful, I love the photos of hills, red roofs and water! Spring does tend to bring all those thoughts about renewal, you are so right about it. I planted a few flower pots for the first time in years, and plan to continue reorganizing my outer space, it really needs some attention. <3

  13. I like how different all of these outfits are, although they all feature printed skirts. The first is so colourful, I really like all of the yellow, the second with all the black lets the printed skirt shine and the last outfit is a great mix of textures :)

    Hope you are having a great weekend :) We are having the perfect weather - warm and sunny in the morning, then cooler in the afternoon and evenings when the storms roll in. We spent time by the pool yesterday!

Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…



What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …
