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!
A couple of weeks ago Puro Greece asked me if I wanted to try out their new athletic equipment and tell them what I think. Of course I had to say yes because I love their products, and I needed some motivation to start running again, and these came at the right time. I’ve been looking for an armband to protect my phone when running, while listening to my music. Puro not only has a wide variety of styles and colors in armbands and wristbands, but also sport belts, headphones, and now safety led lights for your arm or shoe, to protect you when you’re running at night. All in all their new Puro Sport collection has it all and it’s a must-have. I asked T. and Kleoniki to help me with this photoshoot, to show you some of these products, but you should definitely go check out their site for more.
Last week, we continued a tradition that started last year; a pre-Christmas gathering to celebrate the holidays together, since everyone will be celebrating the actual Christmas with their families, and some of us won’t even be in Thessaloniki. So, per (new) tradition, we partied with a special photoshoot that this time included 5 out of the 6 members of the Stylishly Beautiful Team. Unfortunately, our 6th member, Denise, couldn’t be with us, because she lives abroad, but George came to Thessaloniki just for this, and we had a day full of photos, homemade sweets, champagne, pretty dresses for the ladies, and of course full of joy! This year, we played around with the concept of this shoot, to make it more fun, and we had T. take some backstage footage to create a video for all of you, and inaugurate our new Youtube channel (make sure to subscribe!). Check out the details and the rest of the team’s blog links, along with the backstage video, down below.
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!
T. and I celebrate our anniversary today and we’re going to have a nice dinner for the two of us. Last year, we took our first photos together which he kindly let me upload on the blog, so this year; I wanted to continue this little “tradition”. To make it even more special for us, Anatoli kindly offered to take our pictures so we have a nice reminder of the anniversary. We took the photos some days ago so I can have them today, but this is the look I’ll be wearing tonight (the clothes at least – I’ll come back with the full outfit post on Monday). I want to say to T., that I’m hoping to celebrate many more anniversaries together in the future, if he can still handle me, which I know it is a difficult task. 😛 And I want to thank Anatoli for capturing our love with her camera, and creating nice memories for us. My feelings haven’t changed a bit, and I still feel blessed every day to have this person in my life.
