These photos were taken a few days ago, when the weather was still autumn-ish, contrary to the weather we’ve been having these past couple of days, that’s been all rainy & windy. The weather was actually quite mild that day, which allowed me to go out with a bare midriff. I had this outfit on my mind for days, and I’m glad I decided to wear it then, because it would have been impossible to wear it now. I hope I could also leave my tights home, but I was planning to return home late at night, so it wasn’t an option.
I wanted to wear the bare midriff trend for a long time, but since my body isn’t as fit as I would like it to be to wear a cropped top, I kept postponing it. Until, I came across an old top in my closet, that reminded me of how much I loved it in the past and decided to pair it with one of my summer white high-waisted skirts. That way, the bare part would be kept to a minimum, and I would still be able to wear one of the trends of this summer that I really like. On the plus side I could wear it with my blue D&G slingback pumps to save another pair of shoes.
A few days ago my friend S., who studies abroad, (do you remember telling you about her, last summer in Vienna?) and I, went for an afternoon coffee, on the spot I told you about on a previous post. She was in Greece for vacation, but spent most of her days on an island camping, but when she returned, she called me wanting to meet me. She’s one of my dearest friends. Despite studying abroad, and no matter how many miles separate us, we always talk and always meet when she’s in town. She feels like a sister to me. And it’s one of the friendships I value the most! She only stayed in town for a day before she left for Germany again to study, but we managed to find some time for a coffee and some catching up! I always like to make time on my schedule (no matter how busy it can be at times), for my friends, especially good ones!
Before we reach our destination I asked her to take some pictures of me and my outfit for the blog. It’s always nice to have someone do it for you, instead of using a self-timer. The result left me speechless. She did such a great job with the photos…They were exactly as I wanted them to be, and even more! I hope you like them as much as I did.
This is the post I was originally going to publish last Friday, but decided to postpone, since almost nobody would be there to read it. I know August is the month in which most of you go on holidays, especially Greeks, because in August the 15th we celebrate the Assumption of Mary (as I told you last year too), one of the most important religious holidays in Greece (after Christmas and Easter). And because I really liked this outfit, I didn’t want to “waste a good outfit” and not give it the attention it “deserves”, so I decided to postpone it. hehe
