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!

WELCOME SPRING!

Spring is officially here!We are anticipating warmer days, clear blue sky and lots of colorful flowers. What better way to do it than admiring the amazing Dolce & Gabbana collection? I've been blabbering about blossoming shoes and bags lately, but this takes things to a completely different level. There is no point in saying how much I adore this brand, we already know that! But, it's really admirable that they manage to surprise us again and again for so many years. These patterns here may be a little more predictable than the Byzantine inspired collection, but they instantly make me daydream. By just looking at them, I can slightly smell spring coming and hear birds singing. That's what I consider success for an art piece. When it inspires the audience and arouses their emotions.
I was born in May, so that only makes my love for this season even bigger. This is why this collection makes me so nostalgic and awakes the romanticism inside me(like it wasn't already awake^*).
Are you loving this collection as much as I am? Leave a comment to let me know what you think!
Be happy and positive because spring is finally here♥
