For some countries, like mine, school doesn’t start for another month or so, for others, school has already started, or is going to start soon. Either way when I wore this outfit, it was the first thing that came to mind. I could have worn this outfit to my first day back at school if I was still in high school. This dress is also one of my most recent purchases, along with the starfish playsuit you saw on my previous post, and I really loved it. So I’m sure you’re gonna it again in other combinations soon. This time, I dressed it down with my converse sneakers, but for the next time, I’m thinking heels. To be honest, I thought these photos were going to be a total failure, since we were late, and we took them right after sundown. But with a little camera work, and some editing after it, they were decent enough to be posted. More than decent; they surpassed my expectations, given the fact that I had them written off. That was definitely a pleasant surprise. What do you think about this look, dear readers?
My thought that day, was to take some photos on the rocks in my maxi dress at the nearby beach, and then have an afternoon swim with my friends, but unfortunately we didn’t make it to the beach on time to have enough light for summer “outfit photos”, so we improvised. As the sunset behind me was too beautiful to ignore, we took some photos with it behind us, playing with the shadows and the remaining sunlight and after the sun was completely gone, we pushed my camera to its limits to get some decent shots before it was completely dark outside. This outfit is my suggestion for a nice night out at the closest beach bar (or not). Shoes are optional! 😉 In the end, we didn’t have the afternoon swim we wanted, but despite all the obstacles that day, we succeeded in taking photos at the beach, and it was all worth it!
As you may know, I just got back from my vacation, and since I posted only once this week, I decided to post today. Truth is, I really missed my blog, and there’s no better time than the present to show you what’s in my beach bag. I usually don’t take many things with me, but I’ll tell you which things never leave my beach bag:
We had my nephew’s christening/baptism last Saturday, and since I didn’t have my trusty “photographer” with me, I asked someone else to take my outfit photos. I’m really proud to announce that, that someone else was my brother. And I say proud because, even though my brother is really talented at taking photos (in fact it was one of his hobbies for years, and he was really good at it) he’s never the person I go to for taking my outfit photos, because I always know the answer: No! Since this was a happy day for him, I took advantage of it and shoot the question. I was truly astonished to hear that the answer was yes. So the first 3 photos were taken by him, and the next outfit ones (where the dress looks like a totally different color – my mistake!) were taken by my cousin A. This dress isn’t a new one, and you’ve already seen it before here. But I haven’t worn it in 2 years, so I decided to wear it again with different accessories. I really liked the result. After the christening, we went to a nearby tavern, next to the beach, where I found it really hard to resist, and not take a dip in my “formal” clothes.
This month’s wishlist is gonna be less of a wishlist, and more of a summer essentials list. I’m writing this post in advance, because, as you already know I’m in Chios island for my cousin’s wedding, and I’m already in a summer holidays mood. Since we have hot summer weather here in Greece, all I can think lately is the beach, summer cocktails, and beautiful items to make my summer vacations more special. This post is a bit different from the usual wishlists I do, and I hope you welcome it with excitement. hehe
