My month in pics – August 2012

31 August, 2012

Another month comes to an end and takes with it our precious summer! Although summer in Greece is far from over, I can’t hide the fact that I get a little bit depressed every time this happens. It’s not that I love summer, no! I actually hate the scorching heat that goes with it…I’m a spring girl at heart. That’s my favorite season.  But when summer is over, it means that we’re going into fall and then winter (my least favorite season). I can’t help it but feel depressed by this change, when nature changes again, and we can see nothing but fallen leaves (which I admit can be very romantic) and naked trees, and most important of all, the time changes again! This time change from summer to winter is what depress me the most, when the days become shorter, and the nights longer… When the darkness comes at 5pm instead of 8.30-9.30 p.m that does in summer… Oh summer time I’ll miss you the most! At least we have almost 2 more months until the time change!

But let’s see a little recap of my August, the last summer month:

Outfits, left to right, horizontally:

Blue mint, Chalkidiki Diary, Colorblock this!, Miss Robin Hood, Mom’s Birthday party, Summer Sunsets, Bare midriffs and Greek colors.

These are the 7 outfits I shared with you in August! You can click on the post’s names above to be directed to the original posts, in case you’ve missed anything.

August was also a great month for my Shoe Challenge by I managed to save 11 pairs!

I’m now at Shoe Save #25 on my shoe Challenge, which means that I have 35 more pairs to finish it, since I just hit 60 pairs on my Shoe Collection, with the latest addition to it.

August was a good month too, as shopping goes, ‘cause I took advantage of the sales to add some new items to my closet: Apart from the shoes, I added a Céline luggage look-alike tote and a Zara peplum top, and some beautiful statement necklaces (and bracelets) from Zara and H&M.

Don’t have anything else to share for now, since August was pretty much a boring month. At least I had the Shoe Challenge to keep me going, and organizing outfits in my mind always fixes my mood. This, and going for a swim at nearby beaches….

See you all in my next post, which is as usual a wishlist of the next month.

Don’t forget to follow me to get my latest updates.

Have a great weekend.

  1. Lovely month! Well, you know how much I like floral prints, so I loved that strapless dress you were in Chios and the dress your sister-in-law gave to you!
    As favorite shoes, I would say I loved numbers 16, 19, 20, 21 and 23 – yes, the trainers/sneakers are included! Believe it or not, I am now a big flat shoes’ lover, it happened! Of course I still love heels, noooo doubt, but I started appreciating flats too!
    I know what you mean about summer/winter/spring… I love winter, BUT not what you mentioned, either – the days getting shorter and shorter… but I can’t wait to be in the UK, wearing the lovely coats I left there and boots, boots, boots!
    I’ll go in 5 weeks! Very happy!
    I hope you have a great weekend and that you show us lovely outfits, like you did now! You are lovely and very beautiful! Very glad to know you!
    Filakia polla!!!!!!

    • Thank you Denise! The pairs you choose – except for the sneakers – are my favorites as well! I rarely wear sneakers, I don’t like them very much, but they are comfortable.
      I had a very difficult and busy day yesterday! Started off with a funeral (my aunt’s dad, but we were kind of expecting it) and finished wonderfully: watching the sunset and then the blue moon, with my mom and a close friend. I hope you’re having a great weekend….I’m glad to know you too! 🙂
      Filakia pollaaaa!!!

  2. I loved your outfits, as always, they are so colorful!:)
    Although summer is my favorite season of all, this Greek summer in particular made me to hate it! The reason why was the tremendous heat.. Never before can I recall such high temperatures for sooooo long… To be honest, I can’t wait to play a little dress-up with fall’s outfits in Brussels:):)

    • I know exactly what you mean! This summer was soooo hot, and the temperatures were kept high for so long.
      I’m not ready for fall fashion yet, but I’m sure I will when the temperatures allow it.

  4. Ah, I’m definitely going to miss summer as well. I can agree with you completely on the point that it’s not because of the season itself. I hate the heat more than anything! I’d choose shivering over sweating any day.

    Those are some awesome summer outfits and shoes! My goodness, I am quite inspired by your fashion. That green dress with the perfectly matching shoes is too cute. (Fourth outfit, top right).

  5. It’s always nice to see your monthly recaps. You’ve had a busy August! 🙂 I always feel the same when Summer is over, because it’s the same for me I’m not the biggest fan of Winter so right now it’s Spring and I’m getting more excited about Summer!! If there was a way to spend 6 months here and 6 months where you are it would be perfect, haha.
