It was a cold, cold, COLD, and windy day and the photoshoot location made it feel even worse than it was, because we were almost in the middle of nowhere, so we froze from the wind. T. had to ask me to please stay still in a few shots, but I was shivering from the cold wind. I thought the blinding sun setting in front of us would help, but no, it didn’t; it only created a yellow/red filter for these photos. Thankfully we didn’t have to stand there for a long time. The funny thing is that it was my arms that were cold and not my legs, which were exposed, even though I was wearing tights. Oh the crazy things, fashion bloggers do for a few outfit photos! 😀
Hello, hello! I’m back with a fresh new outfit post. And freshly dyed copper red hair again! Of course these photos were taken a couple of weeks ago, so the color is not that fresh now, but you get the point. Back then they were fresh from the hairdresser, and so was their trim and blow-dry/straightening. Wish I could straighten them like this by myself. They look so pretty and long like this. To the outfit now… This dress is old, but I don’t think I’ve ever worn it on the blog. It has puffy shoulders, but it makes a nice contrast with the rest of the dress so I don’t mind. Worn here with my minimal coat (it’s a thin one for spring/autumn), my trusty Kelly look-alike bag and my cork pumps. In other news I got bitten by tens of mosquitos again that day. I should really stop going to such places for photos. The sunset was pretty though.
As most Thessalonians, I’ve been spending most summers of my life in beautiful Chalkidiki. I have to thank my uncle for this, who decided to build a house in the most beautiful place in Neos Marmaras, and my cousins who keep inviting me every summer for some days of relaxation away from the city. I was originally planning to stay for a week (which is a lot for me) but I prolonged my vacation for 2 more days. That was the most relaxation I had in a long time, and I really enjoyed my time there. I’ve already showed you some of the photos we took (check: What’s in my beach bag, Heading to the beach, and sunset at the beach posts, if you haven’t already), but before August comes to an end, I wanted to share some general photos from my vacation. I have a couple of posts left from my time there, but they’ll have to wait till September. But don’t worry, you’ll see them next week! 😉
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!
These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago, but I mixed the posts lately, to show you other ones first. We were on the first really hot days of spring, with temperatures rising up to 30 degrees just before Greek Easter. I couldn’t resist putting on pastels and bright colored sandals, and go out for coffee with a friend (the photos, however, were taken later in the day by T.). I love the outfit, and pics, but they don’t look that flattering. I think I’ve lost some weight since then (even though these pics don’t do me justice), and hopefully I’ll lose even more in the future.
