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.

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!!

Inspired by..... Tijana/ Nadahnuta....Tijanom

Hi everyone! It's time for another Inspired by....post. The medium is acrylic on cardboard. This time I illustrated Tijana from fashion abejita. Painting lace is always a challenge and I'm aware that I have a long way to go when it comes to illustrating fabrics, but all things considering, I think I did pretty well. In fact, I'm quite happy with how this painting turned out. This outfit is a summery one, but it is suitable for Spring as well. Besides, green is in this Spring. 
Zdravo svima! Vrijeme je za još jednu Nadahnuta s...objavu. Medij su akrilne boje na kartonu. Ovaj put sam naslikala Tijanu sa bloga fashion abejita. Slikati čipku je izazov i znam da imam još puno toga za naučiti kada je ilustriranje tekstila u pitanju, no  kada se sve uzme u obzir, mislim da ova slika nije loše ispala. Zapravo,  poprilično sam zadovoljna s time kako je slika ispala. Ova kombinacija je ljetna, ali zapravo se može nositi i na proljeće. Osim toga, zelena je sada u trendu.

HOW TO STYLE BLACK CORD FLARES FOR AUTUMN? OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Are you wondering what fabrics to reach for this Autumn? Corduroy items are perfect for creating cozy autumn outfits. So, I'm assuming most of you (if not all) have at least one pair of dark (cord) jeans.  How to style black corduroy flare jeans for autumn? Today I'll show you an easy autumnal styling. When in doubt go for a black and white styling, for it always look elegant. Here I paired my dark cord jeans with a white shirt and a white blazer. This classic colour combo allowed me to play with accessories a bit. I made things more interesting by adding statement earrings and a scarf in the mix. I also wore high heeled boots for the extra elongating effect. Alright, I'm quite tall, but this combo makes me look even taller. Flare jeans can be so flattering, especially high rise ones.

READING UPDATE & NEW BOOK REVIEWS: OCTOBER COUNTRY, WILD LIFE AND DIDO, QUEEN OF CARTHAGE

Time for another reading update. Today I'll review three books: a novel, a collection of stories and a play. The novel Wild Life by Molly Gloss was my first work by this author. October Country is a work by author I was already familiar with. In fact some of you might remember that I have a great fondness for Ray Bradbury. His Fahrenheit 451 is one of my favourite dystopian novels of all times.  So, I was happy I was able to pick up a collection of his short stories. Finally, I read a play by Christopher Marlowe. This is another author I was already familiar with (I did study English language and literature). I enjoyed Marlowe's version of Doctor Faustus myth, so I decided to see what his others works are like. So far, I read one and a half play but I plan to finish them all by the end of the month. I was also rereading Shakespeare a lot lately because that is always a good idea. I do upload most of my reading on goodreads so you can check my reading progress there as well.
