Yet another nameday has come, and yet another reason to go out and celebrate the best way we know, eating. If you are Greek, you’re familiar with this. Many people in one of my previous posts told me, that this is really common in their country too. I’m glad we’re not the only ones!
Once more it was a really hot day, (more than 35 degrees) and we had to go out for lunch during the hottest hours of the day. So, I thought an updo hairstyle was needed. I decided to give the milkmaid braid a try, but when I finished with it, I wasn’t so satisfied with the result. Plus, looking down at my outfit, I noticed there were some weird styles mixed in it.
I mean, are there milkmaids in the navy? I bet there aren’t! Oh well…
I was already dressed and done my hair, so there was nothing I could do.
In any case, it was just a simple white dress with a few navy details, nothing much. No one even noticed.
I was wearing: Dress: Day by Billy Sabbado (Greek brand – belt and brooch came with the dress), bag: vintage, shoes: D&G, sunglasses: Donna Karan, earrings: Jewellery shop in Thessaloniki (Voila), watch: vintage. On my nails: GT Cosmetics no. 7 and on my toenails, still: Erre Due’s exclusive no. 145.
A close up of the braid. Not so successful though! My mother helped me with it, but my hair is asymmetrically cut, and it was too difficult to make the milkmaid braid.
And of course my favourite part, the close up of the shoes:
Aren’t they amazing? I bought them last year for my brother’s wedding, to wear them with my dream clutch. At first I didn’t really like them, cause 4 bows were too girly for me, but I bought them anyway, cause they were a perfect match for the clutch and I needed them for the wedding. But I think that they won me over. And after seeing these pics I am more smelted.
