STRIPES: NAVY OUTFIT IDEAS FOR SPRING

WHITE AND BLUE STRIPES- A TIMELESS CLASSIC

Maybe I'm jumping a bit ahead of myself here, but I keep putting together warm spring outfits in my head. I know transitional styling is what I should be thinking right now (and I will get to than in my next posts I promise) yet something makes me think vacation style. Maybe I'm craving another weekend at seaside? The beach trend is definitely something I can see myself wearing.  Speaking of spring trends, I really like the mermaid vibes trend, but there is also something to be said for the classical navy style. Stripes and navy prints are something I like to come back too. 

Sometimes a little striped accent (such as a cardigan or a pair of sneakers) can completely change an outfit. Whether navy print is just as accent, or it dominates our outfit, I think in most cases it looks elegant and effortless. A combination of white and blue is always a lovely one. When I think of spring outfits, white or striped tops, blouses and shirts come to mind immediately. I do plan to wear navy inspired outfits quite a bit. I'll probably try to explore the mermaid trend a bit as well. There is a way to do it even while it is still cold, but we'll dig into that some other time. For now, you can have a look at the kind of outfits I can't wait to wear again. 













I think one of the advantages of being a blogger is being able to look back to your outfits. It is kind of like having a digital closet. While browsing my digital closet (i.e. my blog archives) I got even more inspiration for spring. The perks of blogging, being able to travel back in time so easily. I definitely do plan to rock the classical striped outfit in blue and white. That's always a timeless choice. I would also love to try out some new colours and shades, maybe turquoise. There are a lot of interesting spring trends that I'm excited about. That's the joy of change of seasons for you and a plus of living in a climate where you can feel it. I genuinely enjoy the change of season. It is fun to see how your surroundings change, without you having to travel for them to do so. Yes, the change of seasons is always a happy event in my book. I reckon it won't be that long before spring arrives here and I'm really looking forward to it. 

Today I also have some picks from Cocolooshop for you. I found some cute striped women shirts for sale on this site. The two shirts you can see bellow (a striped one shoulder shirt and a regular striped shirt) would both fit my wardrobe well. I think that a striped blouse or a shirt is always a good investment because it is quite easy to style. The same goes for a striped cardigan. As much as I love crazy patterns and colours, I find that having a few striped items in white, blue and/or red in my closet really makes my life easier.

Another nice and trendy option for spring are bodysuits. If that is what you are looking for, do check out these cheap bodysuits for women.  I think I only have one or two, and both of them quite basic (in black if I remember well). I might look into buying some new ones. Bodysuits look great paired with jeans. They can also be very flattering and are quite easy to style. In addition, bodysuits can be worn in any weather because they are easy to layer. I might wear them even more this spring. Do you wear them? Have you started shopping for spring trends yet? Or do you prefer to shop your closet? 


SPRING TRENDS TO KEEP AN OPEN EYE FOR

Some of my favourite Spring trends are: beige, lace and mesh materials (material mixing in general), mermaid vibes and vibrant beach colours (wet suits and all that), oversized hats and statement prints! Let me know what are your favourite ones. Do you plan to wear stripes this spring? What kind of spring outfits do you look forward to the most?

HOW TO WEAR THE SCARF TREND FOR SPRING? 4 BASIC WAYS

Are you ready to jump on board the scarf trend? My outfit proposal is all about the foulard. I matched my outfit with the colours of the foulard I was wearing, opting to wear a red blazer, a black pair of cord jeans and a blue turtleneck. It is a simple and comfy styling that made me feel quite chic. It is always good to have an outfit formula to fall back one for those days you don't have much time. One of the easiest ways to elongate your figure is by opting for a pair of high waist jeans and a cropped blazer (or jacket). If you wear a pair of heels with this combo, you'll appear even taller. Not saying that anyone should do that, but if you want to elongate your look, this is a simple and easy way to do it. Blazers and wide cut pants are always a chic combo, and a scarf will add something to every outfit.

A great thing about a scarf is that it is an accessory that can be worn in a number of ways. I've prepared a little visual guide for you t…

TOP CROATIAN DESTINATIONS: TROGIR CITY (PART 1)

Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…

LAYERING A RED MIDI DRESS WITH RUFFLED SLEEVES FOR SPRING

Good evening lovelies! I've got a couple outfit proposals to share we you. The 'star' of this post is a red midi dress with statement sleeves  I bought last summer. I typically don't do impulse buys, but when I tried on this dress I knew it had to be mine. Have you ever heard of that rule that you shouldn't buy an item if you can't think of at least five ways to wear it? Well, that's a great rule but I decided this dress was worth the buy even if it wasn't the most versatile item. However, now it seems I can think of a five ways to wear it.  Where there is a will there is a way. When I tried this dress on again, I realized that I'll be able to layer it for spring. It needn't be only a summer dress.
1. WITH A VINTAGE HAND PAINTED BLAZER Romantic soul that I am, I simply can't resist a dress that has ruffles. This one has statement sleeves with both ruffles and tassels. It is precisely because of its ruffled statement sleeves that I doubted t…
