You know how much I love burgundy in winter, and you might have also noticed that I’m slowly trying to expand my outerwear collection for the past few years. So a few weeks ago, I started searching for a new coat, and I found this beautiful burgundy one at Spartoo.gr. It’s from Benetton, and I bought it at 20% off. I got mine at size FR38 (IT42). I was going to size up, to be able to wear thick sweaters under it, but the site said to size down, so I got the 38. I love its color and fit, but it is way thinner than I had anticipated. It is really beautiful though, and I think it looks good on me, so I’d definitely be keeping it. Even though it’s more on the violet side of burgundy, I paired it with my burgundy bag and sweater, and my favorite over-the-knee velvet boots. I loved the look, and I’m glad we were able to photograph it that day, because a lot has happened in my life since then, and that’s why I had to take a week off blogging. I’m back now though, and I’d be posting regularly from now on. Hope you like this look!

At the stadium | Outfits
I wanted to take outfit photos at the Olympic Stadium in Athens for so long, and I finally did it, so I’m here to share them with you! This is the second and final look from Athens (unfortunately I wasn’t able to photograph more looks), but I love how these turned out! We woke up as early as possible that day, took the subway and then the train to go to the stadium, so I wanted to wear something that was going to look pretty and chic but at the same time casual enough. I ended up wearing this look for the whole day, and I felt really comfortable in it, so I’m happy with my choice. I bought this skirt from Athens (not that it really matters, because it’s Zara, and I could have bought it as easily in Thessaloniki) so I wanted to wear it as soon as possible. I played it safe by picking the burgundy from the skirt, and matching it with my burgundy sweater, bag and booties, that came with me to Athens that month. After the photoshoot, we returned home for an hour, and then visited an old school mate of mine, and went to Piraeus for the first time, to visit my old-time reader-turned-friend Elena, and her boyfriend. They took us to an amazing restaurant I really loved. Hope you like this look! Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below!
I have a thing with burgundy | Outfits
As the title says: I have a thing with burgundy. I love it and wear it so much during fall/winter, and I have many clothes and accessories in my wardrobe in this color. I bought this short sleeved knit last year, and I like to layer it on top of summer dresses, to create a fall appropriate look. Since it’s long, I like to use a belt to create a better image, for it not to look too loose. Of course I had to pair it with my new burgundy velvet bag, and ankle boots. Can you blame me? They work perfectly well together. I also bought some flowers that day, and I absolutely had to include them in this photoshoot. They are simply perfect! Do you like this outfit? I absolutely love it!

Let’s bring out the booties | Outfits
Even though we’ve been having perfectly warm weather these past few days, we did have some very cold ones already, which made me bring out my booties sooner than I had anticipated. I don’t really love fall, the whole temperature drop and decrease of sunlight makes me kind of sad, but I’m trying to get used to it, before the dreadful winter is upon us. The booties I’m wearing in this post though are perfect for non-rainy days, and they’re brand new, so it’s the first time you see me wearing them. I played with burgundy and dusty pink in this outfit; a combination I really loved. And of course I had to match my booties to my (also) new Migato velvet bag, which I’m absolutely in love with and my short-sleeved knit top which is perfect for fall days. I could have done without the fishnet tights, because it turned out to be actually really warm that day, but hey, it’s a fall outfit, so I got to wear tights, rights? haha What do you think guys?
Tan & burgundy for fall | Outfits
We shot this outfit, just yesterday morning, and I couldn’t wait to show you the new addition to my wardrobe: my burgundy velvet Migato bag. It’s so soft and pretty and has a nice long silver/black chain, and something tells me that I’ll be wearing it non-stop this fall/winter. I can’t wait to pair it with more of my burgundy items, and my velvet boots from last year too. Velvet is still going strong as a trend, so you’re definitely going to be seeing a lot of it. Today’s pairing was something I think I’ve never done before. I wasn’t sure if my monochromatic tan outfit was going to look good paired with this burgundy bag, but I think that I really loved the result in the end. My hair still have a bit of red/purple on the ends, and go perfectly well with the bag as well. Even though I don’t have many tan items in my wardrobe, I think that it’s a color that really complements my skin tone and hair color, so I want to start wearing it more often. What do you think about today’s outfit and photos girls? Do you like it? I actually loved it! 🙂 Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, so feel free to leave a comment below!
