Warm this winter

17 Σεπτ.

 

Hello, there. Are any of my readers left? Sorry I haven’t been updating lately, but I am still adjusting to this new life and I need to find some schedule between University, free time and blogger time. So, today I had a visit to IKEA. Yeah, typical Swedish of me. Of course it was crowded with people and everyone was having a «fika» (swedish traditional coffee break) every now and then. I saw so many pretty things which I’m going to buy later this year.

Anyways, the weather is getting colder here, but not as cold as I would like. Can you believe this? Me, a girl from a hot country complaining about the weather being too warm. But, I am longing for cold weather so I can wear all the knitted and woolen clothes I’ve bought here. Oh, and my weather boots. Also, some very comfy homewear and pyjamas. Love the new campaing of Oysho. And If you don’t know yet, they have installed an online shop…so go ahead and buy some nice vintage inspired lingerie and some warm cardigans for this winter.

What to Wear this Fall

16 Αυγ.

With half of August gone, summer is almost over and taking notes about what to wear this fall seems appropriate. Normally I don’t take notes about fashion, I go through a fashion magazine, like everything I see but rarely think their suggestions are worth including into my personal style. But, this fashion editorial from Women’s Health magazine (yes, a fitness magazine, not fashion) made me excited about fall. The pieces chosen and presented are easy to find and most importantly…super stylish!

The Cape

I already own a cape in a grey-brown knit from Massimo Dutti, which I adore. Capes are very easy to wear and take off and when they are knitted they are so comfortable. I suggest you choose a color that is versatile and depending on your style, pick the right fabric. Knit for casual and wool for a formal appearance.

The Maxi Skirt

The skirt the model is wearing here looks very sexy…on her. I’m not sure if it would look the same on me (I am only 1,60m tall). But I do believe that the sexy cut on the side would make any woman look more feminine and the addition of those over-the-knee boots adds a bit of edge on the look.

The Lace DressThis is a must! Preferably in black, or if you’re bold and confident in white. This type of dress has a bit of vintage and romantic air to it and makes you look sexy without showing too much skin. Plus, who doesn’t love lace?

The Wide-Leg PantA wide-leg pant looks great on slim figures and definately on tall women. So, if you’re either don’t hesitate on trying this look. Now, we normal height women could flaunt this pant as well, but don’t forget to wear a pair of really high heels to give the illusion of higher legs.

The Leopard Cardigan

Personally I am not a big fan of animal print. It all depends on the quality of the fabric, the print itself and the size of the garment. If it comes in a size as small as a cardigan, I could wear it easily. I also hear that animal printed heels exist…

The Luxe ParkaI will need a lot of parkas this fall/winter as I am moving to Stockholm in a few days. But who says that we have to look out of fashion during cold weather? The furry hood is not only great for protecting your ears and neck from cold, it also does miracles on your style. A must!!!

Something preppy this way comes…

13 Αυγ.

…and it’s Franklin and Marshall brand new autumn/winter campaign. I must admit I am in love! Like everytime I see autumn campaigns, full of warm jackets and comfy sweaters. Well, it’s not my fault I prefer colder climates, sitting on a comfortable sofa in a small cafe, enjoying some hot chocolate while outside it’s raining OR even better… snowing. Plus, I was always a fan of preppy sweaters and plaid button-up shirts. I prefer casual wear to formal anytime of the day! And Franklin and Marshall have convinced me that I need to buy a few of their clothes this autumn/winter.

Let it be autumn

7 Αυγ.

During the end of summer I get this weird desire for colder climate and atmosphere. The desire to wear knitted cardigans, scarves and hoodies. Maybe it’s because I live in a warm country (Greece) and our summer is extended until late October that I get the need for change. That is until now. In a few days I will pack my things (most of them) and head for a very different country… Sweden. Yes, I will go from hot to cold in an instant. Can’t wait to experience something completely different. But more about that in later posts.

The latest campaign of Hugo Boss Orange, shot in Amsterdam, Netherlands looks so beautiful and fills me up with inspiring outfits to wear in Stockholm this autumn. Also, the cast looks so young and fresh, a very important factor for a campaign aimed for young people. Amsterdam is always a great city to take really nice photos. So, enjoy the big collection of photos and dream of brown leaves covering the streets soon.

Back to Basics

29 Ιολ.

Heeeeeeey, you guys! I am back from holidays! I feel sleepy and dizzy from the trip back home and have so many memories with me. Milan, Paris and Strasbourg were amazing… only for the part where rain was involved. Especially when I was in Paris, it was a bit devastating, but still Paris looked as magical as I had left it. Milan was very much the fashionable city everyone’s been saying and Strasbourg…was incredible, magnificent and so many more adjectives. But whole posts about them will come soon! Now, I am back to Athens getting ready for a new adventure, one that will last a little more than 12 weeks.

Anyways, August is almost here, the last month of summer, and autumn seems closer. There are a lot of lovely new collections that are coming our way. But still there is the smell of summer in the air and in a country like Greece you can’t help but to love summer in all its beauty. So when I saw these inspiring photos from Free People taken in Venice I was inspired and had to share them with you!

Ooh La La, C’est Blake!

2 Ιον.

I could look at this photo for hours and not get bored. Yes, I do have a girl crush on Blake Lively, there I admit it! But you can’t change the fact that Karl Lagerfeld, creative executive and major designer for Chanel. chose her as the face of the «Mademoiselle» line last year.  What I like most about this photoshoot are the red heels and the hairstyle! The hair-twist in the second, third  and last photo is to die for! So, enjoy this Glamour photoshoot with lots of  love.

Inspiration: Penelope Cruz

18 Μάι.

I was wondering when I would be inspired by a real woman and this time it’s from a Spanish woman. Penelope Cruz was photographed for Vogue US in all white outfites and very light make-up that makes her look more eathly. What a true, flawless beautie she is, right? I love this photoshoot so much! It makes me think of bright summer afternoons and valleys full of flowers. Also, I would like a lacy dress as in the first picture so much!
