HOW TO STYLE DRESSES WITH BLAZERS FOR EARLY SPRING? OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Today we'll talk a bit about styling dresses in early spring. Generally speaking my advice would be to wear your dresses with blazers and lighter jackets/coats. If it's still cold, you could also add tights and boots to your outfit. That's what I've been doing lately. One great thing about spring is that you can style all kinds of dresses in this season, even summer ones. You can always layer to make your outfit more warm and cozy. To dress up your spring dresses, opt for dressier shoes and fancy bags. Similarly, if your want your feminine spring outfits to be more day time appropriate, you can always dress down your dresses with sneakers and (denim/leather/utility) jackets. Alternatively, you can also wear sporty or casual dresses to get that relaxed vibe. Not only is there a dress for every kind of style, there is a way to make almost any dress fit your style. It's all about figuring what works for you.

Today's outfit proposal for an early spring styling has several components: a vintage dress, a long blazer, a pair of boots, a straw bag and lastly a scarf tied as a belt.  I typically wear this pink pleated vintage dress in both spring and summer. The only difference is that in spring time, I'm more likely to pair it with closed shoes and/or tights, while in spring I wear it with sandals. Pleated items are quite trendy right now. I'm  definitely a fan of pleated dresses and skirts. A pleated item can give a perfect note of elegance and  sophistication to your outfit. This dress is pink with bluish tones, so I paired it with a navy blue blazer. I think these two items are a nice match. I tied my new chain print scarf as a belt. Isn't it amazing how many ways there are to wear a scarf?  There is another scarf in my outfit, the pink one I wore in my hair, I almost forgot about that one. The bag I opted for is a straw bag. It's all about those vacation vibes. This is a lovely time of year for fashion experiments and having fun with our personal style.

Do you like wearing skirts and dresses in spring time? I don't think I would go too far if I said that skirts and dresses are my 'go to' pieces in spring. The best thing about dresses is they come in such a great variety of styles. For example, if you are going for a more attractive look, you can always look for cute bodycon dresses. If you want to keep things more modest or office appropriate, you can opt for a more romantic cut. When it comes to spring time, I tend to wear dresses in all lengths: mini, standard, midi or maxi.  As of late, midi and maxi happen to be my first choice. If you don't have any in your closet, you can always look for midi or maxi dresses online. Glitter and metallic dresses are also a good option for spring. Recently I wore a gold one, and I loved it. The metallic dress I've linked to bellow is from Omnifever site. I think we'll be seeing a lot of metallic this spring and that goes for dresses as well. There are a lot of wonderful trends to choose from when we talk about dresses for spring. Before you go shopping, I would recommend you to check your closet, though. Sometimes we forget what we have in there and end up ordering similar pieces. My advice is to only buy things you know you will love and wear. That applies for dresses as well. Don't buy something that is trendy, if you don't like it yourself. There are so many trends out there right now, you're surely to find a dress that will fit both your personal preference and style.

A FEW MORE OUTFIT PROPOSALS  FEATURING BLAZERS AND DRESSES

Here are a few more spring outfits featuring blazers worn with dresses/skirts. Let me know which one you like best. Do you like to wear blazers in spring time? If yes, what kind of blazers are your favourite ones? What is your favourite cut and colour? I'm asking this question, but I couldn't answer myself. I like blazers in all shapes and colours. Still, if I could have only one blazer, I'd probably choose a classical black one because it is such a versatile piece. 

Thank you for reading and visiting. Have have you been? How has spring been treating you? Let me know. Have a great week ahead!

  4. Your dress is so cute layered and I like how you added the scarf as a belt and in your hair! Fun way to accessorise! :) I like layering my dresses up for spring and autumn, although I'm desperately waiting for it to cool off here so I can start doing that, haha!

CROATIAN FASHION WEEK: MATEYANEIRA FASHION ILLUSTRATION IN WATERCOLOUR

I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).

IS MOSTAR A GOOD EASTER DAY DESTINATION? PLUS A SPRING OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Luckily for me, Mostar is an excellent Easter day destination. You see, I had travel plans for this Easter weekend, but I caught a bad cold so I decided to stay in the city I'm currently based in. That's actually not a bad thing because (if you ask me) Mostar makes for a great Easter day destination. Naturally, I've would have loved to visit my family, but since that wasn't possible, I'm happy to be spending Easter in Mostar. I've already cleaned and decorated my home for Easter so I'm all set. I've also prepared an outfit proposal but more about that later on. First I'll talk a bit about Mostar. Why is Mostar such a great spring destination? I can think of a number of reasons, but from top of my head I would say wonderful climate, beautiful landmarks and interesting history. Mostar is gorgeous in spring time. With its seven rivers and a number of lovely parks, Mostar can feel like a city oasis.

TROGIR CITY (PART TWO): KAMERLENGO CASTLE AND OTHER SIGHTS

KAMERLENGO CASTLE AND FORTRESS 

As I promised in my last post, my description of  wonderful Trogir city continues. Today I'll show you the city's promenade, its walls and a historical fortress Kamerlengo. We'll start with the latter, as it is one of the main attractions. Castle and fortress Kamerlengo was designed and constructed in the fifteenth century by a local Croatian builder and sculptor known as Martin Radoj. Martin also worked on some of the Gothic elements of Trogir city cathedral and later on in life he was entrusted with the construction of Trogir port. The fortress was commissioned by the Republic of Venice, hence its name 'camelengo ' that is an Italian version of chamberlain. I didn't go inside of  Kamerlengo fortress this time because I've been there before so I just enjoyed observing it from the outside. Besides the Kamerlengo castle, today I'll also show you the city walls and other details from Trogir. Enjoy.
