I’m looking at these photos and thinking about that warm sunny day, and I miss it so much, because it’s been all about rain lately and I can’t handle it anymore. I just want it to stop. It’s been the second year in a row that’s been raining both on my birthday, and nameday (which was yesterday!), and I hate the weather for that. May was one of the most sunny and carefree months. Not too hot, not too cold, but now it’s moody and rainy all the freaking time. Ending my rant here, to talk about this outfit, that I enjoyed wearing on that warm sunny day. I combined my striped culottes with a crop shirt, that you normally knot on the front, my mom’s handmade bag, and my old D&G slingbacks. Did you know that slingbacks are back? They are, but I can’t say that they’re the most comfortable shoes I own, so I’m not planning on getting a new pair. So what do you think about my look? Hope you like it!
These culottes are also one of my latest sales purchases, and even though I loved them, I’m still not sure about them, and how they look on me. Most of my friends complimented me on them, so I’m eager to make them work. For their first outing, I decided to go with my off-the-shoulder top, a previous purchase of mine, but I wasn’t sure about the shoes. Since I’m not that tall, and the pants are “cutting” me around the ankles, I didn’t want to wear a pair of shoes that would do the same. I rejected most of my pumps because I definitely wasn’t going to wear closed pumps in such heat, but I didn’t think of my peep-toe pumps. So I went with my initial thought which was my oldie mules from the early 00s (possibly), but I was not too happy about the final result. I said I wasn’t going to buy new mules, because it’s a style I don’t wear that often, and I don’t particularly like, but now I’m finding myself wondering if I should. All in all, I actually loved this outfit, but I think it would have looked hell of a lot bet better, if the mules were higher, and had a more modern heel. Can’t wait to try my next combination with these pants!
This post is called sporty chic 2.0 because the 1st sporty chic version was this one. So, SO long ago… One of the first months I was a redhead. My hair was actually redder and less copper back then, but I’ve found my color after that time. Back to today though, or more accurately yesterday, when we took these photos; I originally wanted to pair this outfit with heels, but I’ve put my sneakers on to run to the car to take something, and I looked in the mirror and thought, “I like it”. And since I was going for breakfast and coffee after these photos, I thought it would be more appropriate to wear sneakers than heels, so I changed my mind. You’ve seen me hundreds of time wearing heels, but only a handful wearing sneakers, so I guess that’s a refreshing change from my usual routine. What do you think?
Last time I wore this long sleeveless blazer, I didn’t give it the attention it needed, so I decided to wear it again in another outfit. I’ve been on the lookout for a piece like this for a long time, and I’m super excited that it’s finally mine. The sleeveless versions of long blazers/vests/trench coats is of the biggest trends of the latest seasons, and as you can see it’s one I’m excited about! I decided to keep this outfit very light, and in the same color palette to make it look more casual. You can wear it from day to night, starting with a pair of flats, and ending with a nice pair of pointy heels. I’m sure that it’s a piece that I’m going to wear a lot. Already searching for a plain black version of it, maybe even a bit longer than this one… What do you think?
This outfit is as fresh as it gets! We took these photos yesterday afternoon, before we went out for dinner with T. and Kleoniki. We were invited by TGI Friday’s Greece, to taste some of the dishes that are going to be in their new menu, and of course we said yes, since it’s one of our favorite restaurants. We tried so many things, that we could barely move afterwards. But more on that, on my next post! Lately, we had a drop in temperature, courtesy of the rainy weather, so I had to wear a jacket. I was this close, to changing my whole outfit, but I decided against it, and I’m glad I didn’t. The outfit actually looked much better in real life, than in these photos, but we didn’t have much time to search for a better location. I guess it’s this time of the year when you start adding layers to your looks. Jackets are a great way to transition into fall, while still wearing your summer dresses. I hope you like this look!
