APRIL RECAP (16 SPRING OUTFITS WITH BLAZERS)

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).

 VINTAGE PASTEL GREEN BLAZER WORN WITH SNEAKERS

I'm warming up to styling blazers with sneakers. I think the end result can be quite fresh. This time I paired this vintage pastel green blazer with a white dress and leggings.  A very comfortable styling. Perfect for being a tourist in your own town. Bellow you can see me exploring Mostar city. If you want to see more outfits with this vintage blazer, you can check out some of my old posts. Generally speaking, I like to pair pastel green with different colours and shades. It goes well with everything and it's ideal for spring.




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.

WHITE BLAZER WORN WITH  ORANGE 

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.

  6. On top of showing us your fabulous sense of fashion and the gorgeous scenery of your home country, you've been a real advocate for the humble blazer and all its fashion possibilities. Well done, you! This really is an item of clothing that can be either dressed up or down, and looks great with trousers, skirts and dresses. I've got quite a few blazers myself, and it's time I search them out and start wearing them more. I wore a lovely floral one yesterday, which I'll show you in a future post. My particular favourites of yours are the tartan one and that very cute red one! Have a great week! xxx

  19. I think this is exactly why I couldn't give away all of my blazers when I retired. They are so versatile. Especially when you think of them as a lightweight jacket.
    You always have such fabulous style, Ivana!!

I agree that a blazer is the girl's best friend and like you I wore many blazer in April (and still do in May). I'm surprised each spring when I discover my blazers again how versatile they are and how well dressed they make one feel. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful inspirations!

HOW TO WEAR DRESSES WITH SNEAKERS FOR SPRING & SUMMER?

If there is one outfit that screams spring and summer for me, it's dresses worn with sneakers. Naturally, dresses and sandals is another lovely pairing, but sneakers also have many benefits. From being orthopedic (not all of them but still) to being appropriate for all kind of terrains, there is no denying that sneakers are practical. You can take them anywhere, from a rock beach to a sandy one. You can pair them fun socks or tights for those days it's still not warm enough. Long story short, they do make for a lovely choice in this season. What are your thoughts? Do you like to wear sneakers in spring and summer? My last post was about styling dad sneakers with jeans and a blazer, and today I'll show you some of my favourite sneaker and dress combinations. If you ask me, the answer to the question can I wear dresses with sneakers is - yes, you absolutely can.

HOW TO STYLE A YELLOW BLAZER WITH DAD SNEAKERS FOR SPRING?

My outfit proposal of the day is a casual one. I feel that not too long ago a blazer worn with jeans wouldn't have been exactly my first choice, especially paired with dad's sneakers, but times are changing. One of fun things about trends is that they can make you step outside of your comfort zone a little bit. Obviously, we shouldn't follow trends just for the sake of following them, but often they can give us inspiration. I certainly like to look at them that way, as a source of inspiration. Fashion moves in circles, so playing up with trends doesn't really have to cost anything, especially if you have already mastered shopping your own closet. The athletic sneaker trend is certainly a tempting one. It's hard to say not to the comfy sneakers trend, especially when you enjoy hiking and strolling around as much as I do. Most people do have an ugly sneaker in their closet. It is possibly the most comfortable option out there, so why not try styling it for every day…

HOW TO WEAR A DENIM SKIRT (WITH A BLAZER) FOR SPRING?

I often write about shopping one's closet on this little blog of mine. Not only is shopping our closet  a sustainable thing to do, it also helps us to get to know our closet. How can you really know your wardrobe options if you don't style and wear your clothes? The potential of every clothing item increases with a bit of tender love and care (TLC). One of the things I love about shopping one's closet is the opportunity to create stories with our clothing items. When we care about a clothing item, we're more likely to take good care of it and that can help make us more environmentally conscious. Most people could really benefit from learning how to take better care of their clothes, that's for sure. We live in an era of 'wear it then throw it'. This consumerist approach is what makes fashion industry such a horrible polluter. We can all help to change that with our every day choices. Good news is that we can all help it in a variety of ways. From buying vi…
