I wasn’t sure which one of the 2 posts that were left from my vacation I should post today, but given the autumn-like weather outside, this was the most suitable one. We actually took these photos before all the other photos I showed you so far (can you tell by the still pale white skin-color? Not that I complain, and not that I got super tanned after these, because I didn’t, but I did pass the off-white color of the previous summer! hehe You’ll see on my next posts). So we took these photos on a totally hot summer day, but since I found some leaves on the ground I played around with them (like I knew I was going to be posting this on such a grey day!). I actually wore this outfit the night before, but I photographed it the next evening to have decent lighting, hence the absence of make-up and the messy top bun ( I used to do this a lot to avoid getting my hair in the water some of the days). The absence of any other accessory apart from my gorgeous bag and shoes, was intentional. What do you think?
My thought that day, was to take some photos on the rocks in my maxi dress at the nearby beach, and then have an afternoon swim with my friends, but unfortunately we didn’t make it to the beach on time to have enough light for summer “outfit photos”, so we improvised. As the sunset behind me was too beautiful to ignore, we took some photos with it behind us, playing with the shadows and the remaining sunlight and after the sun was completely gone, we pushed my camera to its limits to get some decent shots before it was completely dark outside. This outfit is my suggestion for a nice night out at the closest beach bar (or not). Shoes are optional! 😉 In the end, we didn’t have the afternoon swim we wanted, but despite all the obstacles that day, we succeeded in taking photos at the beach, and it was all worth it!
This isn’t exactly an outfit post, more like what I usually wear to go to the beach. Most of the times, I wear a light dress or some shorts, and I always carry my big orange bag, containing all my beach essentials. I want to be as comfortable as possible in my beachwear, and wear as less as possible to avoid the summer heat. So this is what I wore one of the days I was in Chalkidiki, to go to the beach. Of course we took these photos just before we left home. What do you prefer to wear when going for a swim?
I wore this outfit on a really hot day, when I met with the girls for a coffee in Thessaloniki, before I leave for my vacation. We usually meet at least once a week, so I couldn’t go on vacation, without having a coffee with them for goodbye. So we took these photos as quickly as possible, before getting bitten by hundreds of vicious mosquitos. I hope you like this look. See you again when I get back from my time off. In the meantime, enjoy your week. Kisses!
This outfit was inspired by my new favorite necklace by My Piece of Chic, which Alexia sent to me sometime around last week. I think it’s perfect for summer, and it can give color to all your outfits. As for me, I wore more than enough color in mine. A little bit of blue, yellow and pink! I couldn’t pass the chance to wear my color block sandals for the first time this year, but I think the result was not over-the-top. Do you like it? (take a look at the end of this post)
