HOW TO STYLE A SUIT? BUSINESS CHIC OUTFIT PROPOSAL
Personally, I'm quite happy about the suit trend for I'm a big fan of suits. I have already wrote about this trend on my blog here and here. Today I have an outfit proposal that is suitable for a number of occasions. A nice suit can take you from a business meeting to a nice lunch/brunch. There is undoubtedly something empowering about wearing a suit. If you want to make your suit styling more feminine, a good way to do so is to opt for a skirt suit. Now, skirt suits usually leave us more exposed to the cold but you can combat this by wearing tights (or even leggings) and boots. This pair of heeled caramel boots has served me well previous winters and I plan to wear this pair this spring as well. Nothing like a good heeled boots to add some chic and attitude to your outfit. Once the spring finally arrives, you can pair your suits with sandals. I'm sure we all can't wait for the spring to arrive, especially with the corona virus and everything but until it does, it makes sense to dress warmly (especially with the corona virus and everything)!

Before you go off and buy a new suit, why not try finding one in your closet? Maybe you have an old suit that you can style in a new way. That is what I did for I'm all about shopping one's closet. The only thing relatively new about this outfit is the pale blue shirt from Mana. I actually wore this shirt a couple of times since I've bought it but I'm not sure have I posted any outfits featuring it yet or is this a first one. Now, let's talk about the central point of this outfit- the skirt suit! This grey suit consisting of a matching blazer and skirt is second hand (gifted item not purchased but second hand nevertheless). I styled it with things I already have in my closet, such as the above mentioned pale blue shirt, this magenta coat and this old and super comfy pair of caramel heeled booties (all of these items you have had the chance of seeing in my old outfit posts). I accessorized with a DIY headband. do try to keep my fashion habits sustainable by opting to restyle items I already have in my closet, taking good care of my clothing items and/or shopping second hand. I have never been prone to fast fashion habits because I'm quite sentimental when it comes to clothes, I get easily attached to clothing items and I like to create stories with them. Moreover, I was always attracted to vintage clothes. When I was a little girl I would roam my grandmother's and mother's closet and I would always prevent them from throwing clothes away by promising to wear it (and I did live up to my promise). So, sustainable fashion comes naturally to me. However, there is always room for improvement. I always think twice before I buy something.
MORE IDEAS TO DRESS UP A NEUTRAL SUIT
If you're new to wearing suits, you might want to start with a neutral one. Lately I found myself drawn to grey suits. Neutral suits are practical because they are easy to dress up and down. Plus, you can always add some colour with accessories and outwear. I often pair my grey suits with this vibrant magenta coat. These caramel boots served as a lovely pop of colour for this outfit. Good thing about neutral suits is that you can always add some colour to them. In that sense, they're almost like a blank canvas to paint on. Today all kind of suit styling options are trending, so you can even wear a suit with sneakers. Isn't it great that the suit trend is so democratic? You can wear it in different ways from rock chic to dressed up versions.Pair them with heels for a more feminine outfit. You can also combine different neutral suit pieces to create visual contrasts. White, black, navy and great are all wonderful neutral options that always look elegant and chic. Scroll down to see more ideas about styling neutral suits.
WHAT TO SEE IN JELSA: THE CITY PARK PERIVOJ
The city park is definitely one of the highlights of Jelsa village. In Jelsa you can find one of the largest is the most beautiful parks in Dalmatia - Perivoj, built in 1870. As you could have seen from my numerous post, Jelsa is a beautiful little place. What else to see in Jelsa? There are certainly quite a few beautiful and historical attractions to see here. To start, why not visit the old city (Civitas Vetus Ielsae)? The old city of Jelsa (where part of the defensive wall is also preserved) is definitely worth a visit! There are also many beautiful churches to see: the church of the Saint Mary of Health (built in 1535), the church of San Roch (built in the second half of the 16th century), the church of Saint Michael (built in 1463).
