I wanted to take outfit photos at the Olympic Stadium in Athens for so long, and I finally did it, so I’m here to share them with you! This is the second and final look from Athens (unfortunately I wasn’t able to photograph more looks), but I love how these turned out! We woke up as early as possible that day, took the subway and then the train to go to the stadium, so I wanted to wear something that was going to look pretty and chic but at the same time casual enough. I ended up wearing this look for the whole day, and I felt really comfortable in it, so I’m happy with my choice. I bought this skirt from Athens (not that it really matters, because it’s Zara, and I could have bought it as easily in Thessaloniki) so I wanted to wear it as soon as possible. I played it safe by picking the burgundy from the skirt, and matching it with my burgundy sweater, bag and booties, that came with me to Athens that month. After the photoshoot, we returned home for an hour, and then visited an old school mate of mine, and went to Piraeus for the first time, to visit my old-time reader-turned-friend Elena, and her boyfriend. They took us to an amazing restaurant I really loved. Hope you like this look! Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below!
I’m here with the second part of my travel diary from Athens. If you haven’t read the first one, here it is. I’ve already talked you through days 1-3, and here’s day 4, the day after the girls left. We started the day with breakfast/brunch near the area where we were staying. T. and I shared the fried eggs you see in the photo above in a cute little place called Monsieur Barbu. The red refreshment is homemade sour cherry juice. Read the captions under the photos to see what we did next, and watch the vlog at the end of this post, in case you missed it on the previous one.
Heyyy! I was finally able to go though the photos I took while I was in Athens, and I’m here to show you the diary from those days. I’ve already uploaded the vlog I filmed on my channel, but since it’s mostly in Greek, I wanted to make a post here as well. This is only part 1 though, because I had too many photos and I didn’t want the post to be cramped with them. We flew to Athens on Tuesday the 5th of September, with T., and arrived there late in the afternoon, but went straight to dinner with family/friends, so I don’t have photos from that day (you might want to watch the vlog though for some #foodporn). On the next day, my girls from Thessaloniki arrived too. You might already know them from their Youtube channels, on the photo above (left to right) we have Maria of Stylebows, Katerina of Kate Tzoe and Thalia of Miss Thalia. The reason we all went to Athens was because we were invited to attend the press event/launch party for Kat Von D Beauty, which is finally coming to Greece at the end of this month. The girls were too tired to do much, but here’s what we did… Read the captions under the photos for more….
Before completing my Athens-trip diary, I have to show you what I’ve promised you. A post, with all the places I went for food, drinks & desserts when I was in Athens. Most of them I found through Instagram and Facebook, some were suggested by friends, and some others were just last-minute decisions. If you’re on a diet, stop reading now! There’s a lot of food pics in this post.
I’ll start with the must-go places to go for dessert, because I’m sure that’s the ones you’d want to see first. Here we go!
On our last day in Athens, we started with brunch at Mama Roux, after Anna’s recommendation. We were lucky to have found a table because almost everything was reserved. But after trying their brunch, I say it was worth it. I’m keeping the details for a later post, the one I promised you, with all the food/coffee places we visited. We walked to the Greek Parliament, stopped to take some photos and then went to visit the National Garden. It wasn’t our first time there, since last time we visited Athens we were staying just across the street, but we really wanted to go there again. During our walk through the garden, I had the idea of filming a few things to make a video, but due to the lack of (more) camera space, and the lack of time (because we were leaving for Thessaloniki soon), we only filmed a few short clips. Nevertheless, I made the video, and with the permission of T. I filmed his look of the day as well, and I uploaded it on my channel for you to see. I hope you like it! Let me know if you’d like to see more videos from me in the future!
