I know I'm a bit late with my April recap, but as they say, better late than never. Typically when I do monthly recaps, I tend to talk a bit about everything. However, this time I'll just focus on fashion and outfits. I'll share with you a few outfits that I haven't had the chance to share before, as well as some of my last month's favourites. What has April taught me in terms of style? The most important thing could be summed up in one sentence: blazers are girl's best friends. I've been wearing blazers on every day basis in April. They're the perfect item for spring. I've possibly worn all blazers I own this April and I especially enjoyed styling my vintage ones. If you're looking for some inspiration for wearing blazers in spring, today you have came to the right place.
TARTAN BLAZER WORN WITH DENIM
Bellow you can see a very typical April outfit, a denim skirt paired with a turtleneck and a tartan blazer. April has been quite temperamental, so sometimes I had to rely on layers to stay warm. Blazers are great not just because they're practical but because they make every outfit look a bit more elegant, professional and dressed up.
OLIVE BLAZER WORN WITH SKIRTS AND DRESSES
Bellow you can see how I styled this olive green blazer with a printed skirt (that I happen to love). I've also included a photograph of one of my new paintings I took for framing. I still haven't hang it out, I'm not sure what spot on the wall I shall use for it. Besides this outfit I haven't shared before, I'm also sharing two outfits I already blogged about (link is bellow the photograph if you want to see more of it).

NAVY BLAZER WORN WITH SPRING OUTFITS
I wore this navy blazers three times on my blog this April and once in March. This navy blazer is by a Croatian fashion house that doesn't exist anymore- Uzor. I used to love their stuff and was really sorry to see them close down. I enjoyed wearing all the outfits I created with this blazer. This is such a great quality blazer, I'm really happy I bought it years ago. I'm sure I'll wear it for years to come.

VINTAGE WHITE BLAZER WORN WITH A DRESS
I wore this white vintage blazer once this month (that I have captured on camera, possibly even more than that). Bellow you can see how I wore it with an orange dress. Back in March, I also styled it with a pink dress (You can see that post by following the link WHITE BLAZER WORN WITH A PINK DRESS ). I think a white blazer can really come in hand during spring time. This one is quite warm, so it is perfect for those transitional days. I also really like its cut (that is becoming trendy again). Plus, it is a size or two too big for me, but I actually like the oversize chic with this particular cut.

YELLOW BLAZER WORN WITH DARK TONES
I only wore this vintage yellow blazer twice on blog last month, but in reality I wore it often than that. I like to pair it with dark tones to make a contrasting statement. I will probably wear this blazer a lot in May as well. It is very practical and easy to wear. Plus, I love this shade of yellow. How about you? Do you own a yellow blazer? Do you think it's a good item to invest in?

RED BLAZER WORN WITH DARKER ITEMS
This red blazer has been a staple in my wardrobe since I bought it. I absolutely love this bright shade of red. What is more, the 'almost cropped' cut of this blazer is fabulous. I often pair it with dresses and high waist skirts, but this April I wore it mostly with dark high rise pants. It looks best with high rise items because of its cut. I'm happy with how I styled it last April, I might repeat some of these outfits. I like the contrast between the bright pink and black (or navy) tones.

HAND PAINTED BEIGE BLAZER WORN WITH A RED DRESS
Bellow you can see one of my favourite outfits from April. This vintage beige blazer was a gift from a family member. I customized it by painting red hearts on it with textile paints and I wore it with a red midi dress with statement sleeves. I used to believe that this dress was only for summer (due to statement sleeves) but I realized you can get away with wearing statement sleeves with blazer if you choose the oversize fit.
