Σήμερα σας έχω μια πολύ ωραία έκπληξη. Το Do You Speak Gossip? και το Be Special, ενώνουν τις δυνάμεις τους για να σας φέρουν το νέο μας διαγωνισμό. Η γλυκιά Μαρία του Be Special, μας παραχώρησε το δώρο του διαγωνισμού, αυτό το υπέροχο statement κολιέ της φωτογραφίας, και το μόνο που έχετε να κάνετε εσείς είναι να ακολουθήσετε τα παρακάτω 3 βήματα για να λάβετε μέρος.
For this outfit, I combined my 2 latest purchases: this light pink sweater which is making its debut on the blog today, and my new Betty London ankle booties. Once again I paired pink with gray, a combination I really love, and went for coffee with my fashion blogger friends. A statement necklace was the perfect finish to this rather casual outfit. These photos were taken just before it started raining again, and this sweater and my coat (not pictured) kept me warm for the day. What do you think?
Every time, before I get dressed, I decide on my outfit… But even before that, I ask myself some questions and take many factors into consideration. Where am I going? Do I need to dress casual, or formal? Do I want to be absolutely comfortable today? Am I going to do a lot of walking? Do I need to carry a big bag with me to fit all my needed stuff for the day? Can I wear a dress? It may sound complicated but it’s not, because those questions get answered in a few seconds. So I ask myself these, and I go on, deciding my shoes and bag for that day, and I usually built the rest of the outfit around those. For the day we took these photos, I needed to be comfortable (so jeans and a loose top were the best option), I was going to walk a lot (therefore I needed flats), and I needed a bag to fit all my stuff plus my camera, that would match the rest of the outfit. And this is how even the simplest outfits get created in my mind. There are many variations to this process, but it usually goes like this. How do you get dressed in the morning? What’s your process?
Last week, we had a 2nd meeting with some of my fellow fashion/beauty bloggers of Thessaloniki. After enjoying some coffee/drinks and chitchatting at a cute café downtown, we headed to a small alley near the white tower, where we took outfit photos! Mine were taken by the sweet Kleoniki of Notebook of Claire, whom I want to thank for her patience. I decided to go with my maxi purple dress and my new candy shoes, as I was planning to go for drinks with some friends later. Next time I’ll try to dress more casual, to match the girls! hehe In the last 2 photos, apart from Kleoniki, you can see Anatoli from An.ni with love, and Kate of The Orange Pig!. Thank you girls for this amazing evening…We should definitely do it again!
Usually my wishlists are filled with colorful shoes, but sometimes even I’m bored of looking at too many shoes. For this reason, I decided that June would be all about statement necklaces. A statement necklace is the perfect piece to make a summer outfit complete. Summer clothes are usually more light and minimalistic, so it’s all about the accessories to make an outfit more special. These 5 are my picks for June. Do you have a favorite?
