SMELLS LIKE THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING

Here in Greece, when we want to say that something smells divine, we often say that it smells like the first day of spring!
I wanted to create an outfit that would capture this smell, in a way. Just casual chic with a hint of craziness and playfulness, something to make the transition easier. This floral top was the best I could find in my closet because everything else was just too light for this weather. I added the colorful bracelets and the rose ring and of course, my current obsession, the gold heart necklace. I'm actually wearing tons of bracelets on my other wrist but you can't see it here. To make the outfit a little more March-appropriate, I threw on this gorgeous jean shirt, which instantly makes the whole look less crazy and street-ready. To get in the mood, I also braided my hair. I love braids because you can do so many different things and conceal crazy frizzy hair any day(the girls with curly hair probably get me)! Just to make the look more natural, I ditched the makeup and I'm only wearing Baby Lips lipbalm, another huge obsession. No mascara, no liner, no concealer, no blush. I must admit it felt good, only a little uncomfortable since the camera is always ready to capture any imperfections. But, who cares? I just love springtime because you can be more casual and much less polished than winter. Especially during summer, because my eyes are light and I get tan, I don't even need to wear mascara. Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love wearing makeup and, also, trying new products and new ways to apply them. But when you do this all the time, your skin can be damaged and you constantly need to apply creams etc. This is why I feel so good whenever I have the chance to let my skin breathe. Spring is here and it's our chance to be bright and colorful. Ditch the blankets and leave the couch(but never EVER your tea) and go out! Wear something unexpected and SMILE!

NEW BLING-BLING!

Accessories can definitely define and upgrade your everyday look with no effort at all. When it comes to jewellry, just one statement piece or all together, they MUST be there. Today, I decided to show you my newest ones. All from Strass Bijoux, perfect for both summer and winter, and all gold! I used to prefer silver over gold but I've changed my mind. Of course I still adore my silver spikes and my lovely cuffs and pendants, but my current obsession is gold. I am completely in love with this heart pendant! I wear it everyday-it's cute, it's simple and it goes with everything♥ The bracelets are the perfect transformation of the classic pearls in a younger version and look really good compared with the gold infinity bracelet with strass. In the last photo you can see the other products I'm obsessed with. Baby lips lip balm by Maybelline and face cream by Yves Rocher. The truth is that baby lips just came out in Greece and I haven't tried it yet because the package is so adorable to rip it off. I've been using this cream for many years and it is exactly what I need. Since I'm still really young, I want a light product for moisturizing-just a gentle touch on my sensitive skin. The chamomile scent is just so relaxing yet fresh, making this cream perfect to start my day!
What do you think of them? What are your latest obsessions?

SUNNY & FLUFFY

I know I should have made this post earlier this week, but I've been super busy with a symposium the past few days and I didn't get the chance to upload this. Anyway, here it is now. As I mentioned at my previous post, these photos are taken by my dear friend Dimitra, you can check out her work here: http://instagram.com/dtziv http://dtwinter12.tumblr.com/ she is amazing! 
The other day, while strolling around, we found this gorgeous little place with great light and we knew we had to take some photos. I love posing but I also love being behind the camera so all the photos we took were so beautiful!
This fluffy sweater is so comfy and pretty but it was a huge mistake since that day the weather was really warm. It adds some extra volume at the upper body but I love the way it feels. But that's just me...It was great working with Dimitra and I look forward to the next time! Enjoy the weather in these photos!

GREY CLOUDS

Grey days, grey ways, grey clothes... Sometimes it feels like everything is so depressing and blue (well...grey...) and that there is nothing you can do about it. But it's not true! You may have to wear tons of clothes that add an extra 5kg, but it doesn't mean that you can't be fashionable. Turtlenecks can be tricky so you have to make sure that it will be cold all day long, otherwise you'll end up sweating really bad and no one wants that. With such a thick sweater it's not always easy to wear a necklace. This is one of the reasons why I am a huge lover of bracelets, especially during winter. Add some sparckle at a total black oufit by stacking your bracelets and bangles and make some fun combinations. 
I know it's not the best confidence boost to walk around dressed in color while it's dark and cloudy outside. I, myself adore black and grey outfits so much. But this whole weather might turn your mood grey too. If you prefer to go for safe looks it's ok! Why not lighten up your entire outfit with a big bright smile instead? It's raining and you can't go out, do what you want, and your plans for the day are cancelled? That's fine! You can always use this day to relax a little bit. Stay inside, read a good book, listen to your favorite songs, watch your favorite series, take a fluffy blanket and stay warm on the couch, drink loads of tea and hot cocoa, call your friends, paint, be creative!
