Oh my, 7 years of blogging, how fast the time went by? It feels like yesterday that I started this little blog of mine. I couldn’t celebrate my blog’s birthday in another way than an outfit post, could I? Here it is, and a festive outfit post I might add. With a balloon and everything. haha This year we decided against a bigger helium-filled balloon, because it was a total fail, ’cause the helium made the balloon look deflated in last year’s photos, because of the cold weather and we didn’t want to repeat that. So here’s a smaller and cuter one instead. I built the whole outfit around burgundy color, and I really loved how it turned out. It looked even better in real life believe me! I’m definitely going to wear it again for a night out with friends or the boyfriend.
Last Tuesday, T. and I had our 10-year-anniversary. If you follow me on Instagram, then you might have already seen photos (if not, follow me here). At first, we wanted to go on a one-day trip to Chalkidiki, but since it had been raining non-stop for days, we decided against it, because we thought, everything would be soaked in water, even though that day was actually sunny, and warm. So we picked our next best choice, staying in the city, going out for brunch, doing some shopping, then lunch, and taking some photos for this blog. It was nice spending the whole day together, and even though we didn’t do anything “special”, it was pretty special for us. I decided to dress semi-casual for that day, contrary to the outfits I picked the previous years, like this one here. My outfit of the day was super casual, and relatively warm for the day, but as I said, we had bad weather for a couple of days before, so I wanted to be careful. Of course I had to wear heels! I wouldn’t spend my 10-year-anniversary in flats, haha no! We took these photos in one of my favorite places, and if I look bloated, it’s because I was, after all the brunch and lunch food we had. haha Bad day to wear a crop top I guess! What do you think about my look?
If you read my celebratory post yesterday, you’ll know that today is the 4th anniversary of my blog. Yay! Happy blog anniversary to DoYouSpeakGossip.com!

Most of you saw my anniversary look on my previous post, but I wanted to make a more detailed one, to give you more info about what I wore. I picked this dress to match my shoes, and even though it didn’t cross my mind to wear them together at first, I really liked the result. The bag was also a match to the pink of the shoes, and the bracelet (one of my favorite ones), was neither gold nor silver, so that’s why I picked it. My hair is naturally wavy, even though it may seem straight to most of you (the front part is always straight for some reason, while the back is always wavy), and I wanted to accentuate this for that day. So I braided them in 2 parts just after my bath, and let them dry to get this effect. A really natural look and perfect for summer if you ask my opinion. Definitely going to do it again. Did you like my look?
A few days ago, T. and I, celebrated our anniversary! We’ve been together for years, and despite everything around us we’ve stayed united and strong. People change, friends grow apart, and in this difficult world we’re happy to have each other, and grow together, not apart. T. is the man behind the camera in almost all of my outfit photos, and even though he’s shy too, he agreed to do this photoshoot with me, and celebrate our anniversary in a more special way. I respected his privacy, and didn’t post his face. How could I? I don’t even show mine here. It’s not his fault he’s dating a crazy “fashion blogger”. Despite the fact that he doesn’t like taking photos, he’s been a huge help to me, and I know that he does it because he loves me. I show my love in different ways, and in this case, with a new pair of shoes. I got 2 (matching) pairs of shoes for both of us, to celebrate our anniversary. And I thought it would be really romantic to photograph ourselves in them. Of course after the photoshoot we went for dinner too. 😉 Do you like the result?
