Sweater Weather

Hello Fashionistas!

I am the kind of person who gets all enthusiastic for Christmas from mid-November and I guess everyone has started figuring this out. Yeah, I am THAT friend. It's not even December and I have downloaded all the typical christmas playlists, made cookies,put up the first christmas lights, and may or may not be listening to "Baby It's Cold Outside" right now... But it's not I am going to apologise for it either, because what is there not to be enthusiastic about, it's CHRISTMAS we are talking about here, how can you not be pumped up?
The weather in Athens is a lot colder now, which makes me so happy, because the sun is pretty cool, but rain is freaking awesome. In this outfit, I wore black skinny jeans (wow, typical me) and a pair of simple grey vans, and a black knit sweater with little shoulder cuts. I grabbed my leather jacket, and I went to a lovely Friday walk, enjoying my day, since schools were closed for Thanksgiving. Kifissia is now decorated with lovely christmas lights, christmas decorations are all over the place, and - how could I forget - Starbucks started selling their coffee again in festive red cups!

Fall Shopping | 2014

Hello Fashionistas!
The amazing thing about fall, is that it's not too cold to wear your favorite summer basics, but not too hot to rock some winter trends. I recently went on a massive fall shopping spree, and I found some wonderful pieces, which I put together to create some outfits I would personally wear during the winter. I combined shorts with jackets, spring dresses with warm sweaters and much more. And since I loved them all, I thought I should share them with you!

Look Number One: Sunny Morning Walk

All from Zara. Top | Shorts | Jacket 
Oh, you know the feeling when you wake up in one of those warm days, and think to yourself, is it appropriate to wear shorts? Yes. Yes, it absolutely is. Who said shorts are only for the summer? I love to take advantage of warm weather to rock my favorite light-colored high waisted shorts, and in this outfit, I combined them with a basic tee and a raincoat, to make it fall appropriate. If you want, you can wear them with dark-colored tights underneath. Add your favorite heeled boots, and you're good to go!

Tenerife Sea

Hello Fashionistas!
Since the weather in Greece is pretty damn awesome for a September, wearing one of my favorite summer outfits for one last time before I go back to wearing swetears and leggings is a must. Generally during this time of the year it's always confusing when it comes to what to wear. Like, it's practically autumn, but it's too warm to wear coats and too cold to wear tank tops. That is why I prefer to take some fall/winter fashion classics and combine them with unique summer pieces. I try to rock summer fashions for as long as possible, but also add my autumn favorites.
In this outfit, I wore a classic black long sleeved blouse, with printed electric blue floral print shorts. I love the lace ending of the shorts, it just gives a more delicate look to the outfit. I also adore the way the necklace makes the look a bit sparkly, it's like the little detail that completes this outfit.

Vogue Japan | "La Canzone Del Mare"

Hello Fashionistas!
The Vogue Japan team recently traveled all the way to Capri, Italy in order to complete an amazing fashion editorial named "La Canzone Del Mare" for their October 2014 issue. They always manage to have the most unique editorials, and this issue was no exception. In the hands of the skillful photographer Boo George, the outcome couldn't be anything less than breathtaking. It actually featured some pieces straight off the runway of Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Fall/Winter 2014 collection which everyone is dying to get their hands on. In this issue's editorial it was all about the little details, such as the different little jewels were hand-sewed on the dresses, or how the umbrellas and the dresses were matching even to the smallest detail. To my opinion, it's truly wonderful how the colorful gems and the blue colors on the dresses blend in perfectly with the sea in the background.

Under The Grape Vines

Hello Fashionistas!
Today's outfit is a classic color combination (black and white) combined with SS14 trends and some turquoise details. Stripped pants were a total trend in winter, and what a better way to continue this trend in summer than wearing it on shorts? Oh, and let's not forget the kimonos, which were probably my SS14 favorite trend. The thing about this kimono top is that it's sleeveless, has lace details in the back and on it's ends, making it the perfect choice for hot summer days. With a simple white tank top to make it as minimalistic as possible, a gold-turqoise necklace and blue bracelets on, because in outfits like this, it's the accessories that make the difference. 

If you want to wear black and white combinations during summer, make sure to break off the monotony by adding unique accessories and some pastel-colored details for morning outfits and more neon for night outfits.
