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?

Pencil skirt gone sporty | Outfits
The other day, when I was telling you how you can wear your pencil skirts in everyday outfits, I got inspired to show you a very casual version of it. In fact this is a sporty way to wear your pencil skirt, and it’s actually a combination I quite liked. I stepped away from the safety of the skirt’s colors and played with the basic white to make the outfit really pop. I combined my All-stars with my white backpack to make the outfit even more young and playful, and then I glammed it up on the top part with a statement necklace, a blazer and a red lip. What do you think?
Back to school | Outfits
For some countries, like mine, school doesn’t start for another month or so, for others, school has already started, or is going to start soon. Either way when I wore this outfit, it was the first thing that came to mind. I could have worn this outfit to my first day back at school if I was still in high school. This dress is also one of my most recent purchases, along with the starfish playsuit you saw on my previous post, and I really loved it. So I’m sure you’re gonna it again in other combinations soon. This time, I dressed it down with my converse sneakers, but for the next time, I’m thinking heels. To be honest, I thought these photos were going to be a total failure, since we were late, and we took them right after sundown. But with a little camera work, and some editing after it, they were decent enough to be posted. More than decent; they surpassed my expectations, given the fact that I had them written off. That was definitely a pleasant surprise. What do you think about this look, dear readers?
Bad girl 55 | Outfits
This was one of those “spur-of-the-moment” outfits that I wore a couple of weeks ago to meet with the girls. I was originally going to wear my white high heeled pumps with this outfit, that were going to make this look far more “bad-ass” compared to how it looks now, but killer heels aren’t meant for lots of walking, and I wasn’t in the mood to walk on high heels that day. It doesn’t happen often, but I do prefer lower heels or plain flats from time to time, and even though the look would have been so much better with heels, I “sacrificed” it for the sake of comfort. I did however love this look, with or without heels, and it was nice to find this bad-girl tee from my teenage years, in my closet. It is a bit short, but it looks great with high waisted bottoms. What do you think about this look?
New in | Gas booties via spartoo.gr
Last week I received my latest order from the online shop spartoo.gr. I ordered another pair of booties but this time I went for something “sporty” chic. These faux-leather ankle boots, are from the brand Gas, they have a 12cm heel, and laces. They weren’t exactly as they seem in pictures, but they’re really nice. Haven’t worn them so far, but I sure will during winter….Do you like them?
