HOW TO WEAR LEVIS JEANS WHEN SPRING IS NOT THAT WARM?

Spring is not always warm and sunny so I've decided to show you two spring outfits for colder weather. What are we do to do when it is spring but it is still cold? I pretty much answered that question in some of my last posts with these instruction: dress warmly but opt for spring accessories (such as straw hats), or/and wear lighter colours. In addition, opting for light colours can help you achieve that spring feeling. Layering is always a good idea, but if you want to wear less layers, another way to feel warmer is to simply opt for warmer materials such as cord, wool or velvet. A blazer made from thick material can be just as warm as a long coat made from a light material. You can have a look at some of my early spring outfits here, herehere, and here. Moreover, reaching for quality vintage denim can be a good idea. Both of my styling proposals for today will feature a pair of vintage Levis 501 jeans. 


501 LEVI'S JEANS WORN WITH A COAT AND STRAW ACCESSORIES
My first outfit features a straw hat and a beach bag. Truth be told, it was so windy that day I had problems keeping my hat on my head, but that's another story. Another way I tried to bring some spring into my outfit was by styling it with lighter colours such as blue and green. The bag is green and blue, and so is this hand painted top. The denim sneakers are another good early spring choice. This whole outfit is super casual and comfortable. 



Location for this photographs is the famous Old Bridge in Mostar. I think I was around three years old when I visited Mostar for the first time and I do remember walking on this bridge and how tricky it was. It is still a bit tricky, especially when there is a crown of tourists and the wind is blowing. However, Neretva river is always beautiful and it is a special pleasure to behold it from this historical bridge, one of the landmarks of this city. Who could have imagined (on my first visit) that I would live in  Mostar some day? If you want, you can see also read my other posts about Mostar, I'll leave my list with links to old posts bellow.

501 LEVI'S JEANS WORN WITH A COAT AND STRAW ACCESSORIES

Another outfit proposal that I have for you features a vintage white blazer and a faux fur scarf. I love faux fur scarves and stoles for transitional styling. Wearing faux fur items always makes me feel warmer and I don't feel I need as much layers. I often pair faux fur scarves with blazers. For this styling, I toned it down on colours (a bit). Bellow you can see an outfit that is a mix of items for warm and cold weather: ankle boots worn with a straw bag. Why not? Sometimes it is good to mix styles, and transitional weather is perfect for that. Do you like to mix styles as well? I do like how this outfit turned out. This combo of a vintage white blazer and Levi's was also super comfy.



Thank you for reading and visiting my blog.  Have a lovely day!

  6. Hihi, dearest Ivana,
    a straw hat is a funny idea for cold spring days - but I think it's not easy to keep it on the head when it is windy ;-)) You a always wonderfully dressed, no matter if the weather is cold or warm. I love your mixes! Your white vintage blazer with that (vintage?-)fur looks so pretty on you.
    Hugs & happy weekend,
    Traude

  7. Such a creative post Ivana! Didn't know you were experience the same situation in the other side of Europe... spring here isn't that warm neither, which makes me think we will have a very long and sunny summer, is it good or is it bad hahaha?

    Anyway, denim is an essential part of my wardrobe, but I just have some jeans, most of this fabric is in my jacket and in shirts.... But the possibilities with this material are endless right? Love all your option, but the one with the fur is so cool because of the contrast between the two materials :)

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: INSPIRED BY SUMMER STYLE

Time for another FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY! Today I'll share four fashion illustrations with you. The medium for all these four illustrations is coloured pencils on A4 regular printing paper.  The materials used weren't anything fancy, but I still wanted to share these. I drew two of these sketches without a specific reference. The outfits illustrated were a product of my imagination. However, the other two fashion illustrations were drawn with a reference. I was inspired by two fashion bloggers and I drew the summer outfits they were wearing. The illustrations are drawn in classical proportions, not elongated ones that I often use for fashion sketches. I do draw in different styles, sometimes the choice of style depends on the artistic effect I'm going to and sometimes just on  my mood (especially when I'm not doing anything particulary ambitious). Scroll down to see and read more!
Oggi torno con un nuovo post- Venerdi dedicato alle illustrazione di moda (Fashion Il…

14 WAYS TO STYLE ONE BLUE DENIM SKIRT: SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES

Sustainable fashion is such a hot topic right now, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a fashion revolution. More and more people are trying to minimize their carbon print by re-wearing their clothes and shopping their closets. One good way to build a functioning wardrobe you'll love to shop is to make sure you have a couple of essential items in it. These basic pieces can help you shop your closet more easily and become more sustainable in your fashion choices. A denim skirt is one such classical and essential item.  Today I'll show you ten ways to style a denim skirt. I had this particular denim skirt for a couple of years, it's by Croatian denim brand Amadeus (not sponsored) that I can recommend for its quality denim. For me this skirt is one of those items that are season-less and by that I mean those clothing items that can be worn in any season. If you're creative enough, you can figure out a way to wear most of your clothes in any season, but some ite…

HOW I GOT INSPIRED BY D&G AUTUMN/WINTER 2019/2020 COLLECTION? (PART 1)

Yesterday I finally took the the time to watch (and listen) to the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 collection. The runaway show was organized in retro style and lasted about half and hour. Instead of music, it featured a British narrator who commented on the designs in the old style (that is how fashion shows used to be presented, narrated instead of accompanied by the music). Anyhow, I found the both the narration and the narrator charming. The fact that the narrator pointed out all the materials used was quite helpful. The models seemed to move quite quickly, but there were 127 looks displayed so the show took a quite some time to finish. It took me twice as long to study the photographs as to see the show. The trend analysis took even more time. However, that time was not spent in vain for I was finally inspired to ponder my autumn and winter outfits. What do you know? D&G Autumn/Winter collection gave me plenty of inspiration for the colder season ahead. I don'…
