AN OLIVE GREEN BLAZER WORN WITH BLACK CORD FLARES (SPRING STYLING)

How to style an olive green blazer? My outfit proposal of the day would suggest a dark palette. I don't typically wear dark tones, especially not for spring but there are some darker tones that appeal to me, for example I can't resist a dark green palette. As it happens, I like to pair it with black. I do like the black aesthetic, but generally speaking I'm more drawn to patterns and colours. Black is a colour too, I can't argue with that.  Even if black is not my favourite colour, it is still a colour I love. For many, black is the colour of mystery, strength and elegance. Like any colour, it has many connotations. So, for today I have a dark outfit proposal. Perfect for those of you who believe that black is the new black. All of the photographs I'm sharing today were taken in beautiful Mostar, the second largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. One of my favourite things about Mostar are all those lovely historical villas from the time of the old Austrian Hungarian Empire. You can see one of them behind me. Another thing I really like about Mostar is how green it is, especially in spring time.

LAYERING IN SPRING

 How to layer in spring time? I like to have a long vest at hand, these things are perfect for spring. This particular olive vest always comes in handy when I desire light layering. Here I paired it with an olive blazer. Once it got warmer, I simply took the vest off and wore only the blazer. Olive blazers are great for layering too. I don't know if you know, but I do love olive green. Maybe it is because I love olives? As a true Mediterranean, I can't live without olive oil. To say it is plays a crucial role in my cuisine and daily life would be an understatement. When it comes to this colour in fashion, I love it just as much. 




BLAZERS FOR SPRING

Blazers for spring, yes it might be predicable, but it doesn't make this clothing item any less effective. This blazer was actually a part of a set, I have a skirt in same tone. For this spring styling, I paired it with a thrift black shirt and a pair of cord flares. I finished the outfit with a statement scarf in olive and yellow. I like how this light scarf stands out against the predominately dark palette of the outfit. Do you like to wear dark colours? Do you opt for black often? What is your take on the olive shade? Do you like wearing blazers? Do you wear scarves? What do you think about this spring outfit?

IS SCARF A PERFECT ACCESSORY?

It is, if you ask me, especially this season. A scarf can be a simple way to upgrade any outfit. As a scarf lover, I was very happy to see them trending. My tip for wearing them right now would be to tie a simple knot. It looks elegant and is easy to do.  If you're looking for more scarf inspiration, feel free to check out my old posts:

  4. I've always loved the combination of olive green with black - it can look so classy! Speaking of which, the way in which you've worn this scarf at your neck is so lovely Ivana. I adore the photo of you standing on the bridge over the river by the way - beautiful!!!

  12. I don't mind a bit of black, it's great for adding drama to an outfit although the quality has to be superb especially when the bright Spring sunshine is shining on it - nothing worse than pilled up fabric.
    You look great, love the flares. x

  19. Anche a me il verde oliva piace molto, è uno dei pochi verdi che trovo elegante e adatto a più meno tutte le situazioni.
    Abbinato con il nero è senz'altro molto chic, ed in più fa un bel contrasto con i colori chiari dietro di te nelle foto! E poi i blazer sono uno dei capi must per la primavera!
    Sei molto bella ed elegante!
    Baci!

  22. This is a super look! I really like how you have teamed the blazer with the all black theme and then the pop of colour in the scarf! I LOVE your flared cords. I would love a pair like that. I also have an olive blazer but mine is corduroy- I charity-shopped it around 12 years ago and one of my students wore it for her costume for our Pied Piper performance!

    1. what a fun story! I'm sure it's a great blazer. Corduroy items are my new favourite things, I also have some vintage cord blazer that I wear often.

  23. That jacket is most fun and unusual, Ivana. It looks like it has flowers on the bottom hem, which are so pretty. And the addition of the scarf is exactly what I love!!

    1. the blazer doesn't have flowers on it but the vest I wore over it does have painted flowers on the bottom hems, one of the reasons I like it so much. The blazer is almost exactly the same shade of olive as the vest so they look like one item when worn together.

  24. I think you look great in dark colors and I love the combination of olive and black. I actually used to wear mostly dark colors, but in the last year or so I've gotten into some brighter and lighter colors too. Olive is actually a new favorite of mine.

  25. Oooh, I have been noticing that olive green is trending so much recently. I like that darker colors are easier to pair but that doesn't mean we should stay away from lighter colors, hehe. I love your outfit! Everything is well put together. Molstar city looks really neat. Glad you enjoyed your time there!

HOW TO STYLE A GRAPHIC T-SHIRT WITH WHITE JEANS?

How to style a graphic t-shirt? There are quite a few ways to go about it. My outfit proposal of the day suggests that you should try styling your graphic tee with a white shirt, white jeans and a pair of pink heels. Just because autumn is here, doesn't mean you have to wear only dark colours. White items can look so elegant when styled right. Wearing white for autumn and winter can be a great way to refresh your style. If your style is more classical, pair white with neutral colours such as black or grey. If you're a lover of colour, you can have fun pairing white with any shade you like. I actually love to wear soft colours such as baby pink and blue even in the colder months. If you want to jazz up your graphic tee outfit, why not try pairing it with white jeans? If your graphic t-shirt is short sleeved, why not try layering a shirt or a blouse under it? If you borrow you t-shirt from your boyfriend or someone taller than yourself, you can even wear it as a dress and pair …

VISIT STARI GRAD ON ISLAND HVAR WITH ME! TOP CROATIAN DESTINATIONS

Stari Grad on island Hvar is a beautiful historical city. Its name, meaning old city, couldn't be more appropriate. In fact, Stari Grad was formed the same year Aristotle was born in! Moreover, the connection with the ancient Greeks doesn't stop there. This city was actually formed by Greek colonists from island Paros who came here looking for a safe place to live after a natural catastrophe destroyed their homes. In this secluded bay, the ancient Greeks found both safety and beauty. They named this city Faros. This stunning port city, Aristotle's contemporary, can boast with five thousand years of continuous urban tradition. It is also an amazingly beautiful, authentic and picturesque touristic destination. More than five thousand years of urban tradition is not something you see every day. Walking these streets, you can really breathe in history and culture. Autumn is a great time to visit but winters are also pretty mild here, so a winter stay makes sense too.

VRBOSKA (AKA LITTLE VENICE) ON ISLAND HVAR, CROATIA

Island Hvar hides many gems and I'm very excited to share them all with you. Today I'm taking you to a little picturesque village named Vrboska and nicknamed 'Little Venice'. Located at the end of a narrow bay, this tiny village is an ideal place to escape the stresses of modern life. Because of its lovely bridges, Vrboska was nicknamed 'Little Venice'. Everything from the pine forest surrounding it to the traditional Dalmatian architecture within is absolutely beautiful. The views are simply amazing. No wonder it is increasingly popular with the tourists. 
This village started its life as a fishing port and its deep bay still offers protection for boats and yachts.  It is the perfect place to stroll around and admire boats and traditional stone houses. The little island within the bay is particularly beautiful. This little village has only around 500 residents. Most tourists visit Vrboska during the summer. There are many stunning beaches in the vicinity and …
