Two Outfits Featuring One Pair of Hand painted Jeans ( With Links To Old Posts Explaining 'How To Paint With Textile Paints?' )

Today I'm sharing two spring outfits with you. It is hard not to inspired by Spring, not to be moved by its vibrant energy. It is hard not to admire the beauty of flowers blossoming everywhere. That being the case, I figure we might as well let go and enjoy it while it lasts. Sometimes it is best not to fight certain pleasures in life, pleasures like this one, the joy of the definite arrival of spring. Spring is here and I can already sense the scent of summer in the air. Let's make the most out of it!




OUTFIT NO.1 DENIM JACKET WORN WITH JEANS

 The first outfit is all about denim. A pair of vintage (but hand painted by me) jeans worn with a denim jacket. I accessorized this casual outfit with a vintage scarf. You know how much I love scarves, right? This vintage scarf is one of my favourite ones. This was a very comfy outfit to wear, it kind of made me wonder why I don't wear jeans more often. My significant other is always telling me I should wear jeans more often, but I'm such a fan of skirts and dresses that I find it hard to let go of them. I do like customized and vintage jeans, though. 

Floral print is perfect for spring, right? It doesn't always have to be loud, sometimes a subtle floral print can be a perfect choice as well. It's been a while since I hand painted a floral print on this pair of jeans using fabric/ textile paints but I haven't regretted it. If you would like to learn how to do it yourself, you can check out my old tutorials and explanations (of how to paint with fabric/ textile paints) here,  here,  herehere and here

OUTFIT NO. 2: JEANS WORN WITH BLUE SWEATER 



I didn't wear a jacket with this outfit because I didn't need to. I think I already mentioned how the sleeves on this blue sweater are so big that they can't be fitted into a jacket of any kind.  This makes this sweater a bit tricky to style. In reality, this sweater is suitable only for transitional weather, for that period between winter and spring when it is neither too warm nor cold. Soon it will be too warm to wear it, so I'm happy I remembered to style it in time. It seems I'm getting better and better at shopping my closet. Anyhow, I decided to pair this sweater with a white shirt. I'm a big fan of a classical white button up shirts. However, I also like the ones that have cute details so I customized the collar of this shirt. I painted the collar of this shirt with purple fabric paints. That wasn't enough of me, so I did some embroidery on this collar as well. I love how it turned out. 

I've kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple. I'm a big fan of combining the following three colours: red, white and blue. I just love the combination of these colours. This outfit is predominately blue (jeans and bag) but I added a bit of red (with the red stripes on the cap and the hand painted print on the jeans) and a bit of white (with the shirt and the white stripes on the cap). Once the day start getting really sunny, I find myself reaching for caps more and more. I think hats and caps are often neglected during spring time and it's really a shame, as they can be the perfect protection against the sun. Do you agree? I had this cap for a while. If you want to see alternative ways to style a striped cap, you can see it here,  here and here

  18. Yay that it's warm enough that you don't have to wear a jacket anymore and the sight of the spring blooms around you is so pretty! I remember when you first painted these jeans and thinking how great they looked. They still do and you do a fantastic job of highlighting their stylish versatility with these two outfits!

  22. Che belli gli alberi in fiore! La primavera è la mia stagione preferita, adoro il cielo azzurro ed i fiori che nascono un pò ovunque!
    Carinissimi entrambi i tuoi look, stai davvero bene con i jeans, ha ragione tuo marito! Dovresti senz'altro metterli più spesso!
    Tra i due look preferisco il secondo, la maglia è davvero originale, ed il dettaglio del cappellino è proprio stiloso!
    Ma soprattutto: quanto ti sono cresciuti i capelli!!! Sono lunghissmi! Di fronte non si nota molto (ce li hai scalati come me) ma di spalle sono bellissimi!
    Baci!

  23. Your photos of all the blossoms are beautiful! We have two large trees in our school playground which are Cherry blossoms and they are at their absolute peak today! The caretaker asked me if I had any songs about Cherry Blossom to teach the children and I DID! There is a beautiful Japanese folk song called Sakura which I know which I taught them. I found a lovely Youtube video to play them with gorgeous blooms and the Koto accompanying it which worked very well! Well done that Caretaker! Your customised jeans are lovely- I always love seeing them. The blue sweater is great! Enjoy it whilst you can!x

  26. Dear Ivana, no wonder that your environement ask you to wear more jeans! You look fantastic in this garment and both of the looks you share here are so beautiful. Your handpainted jeans are such statement pieces and you combined both times the perfect bottoms with them. Yes, spring makes it easy to combine looks - for me it is currently the same :)

INSPIRED BY.....NATALIA LIALINA

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

A GRACE KARIN DRESS: VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT PROPOSAL

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…

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

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. …
