STYLE FILE: ZARA ♡

If you read a lot about fashion, you probably already know that Zara has been stepping up their game lately. They offer a great variety of good quality pieces, usually under 100$. Designers have said that sometimes they can't tell the difference between Zara and high end collections, and style icons like Olivia Palermo are incorporating more and more items into their looks. No, this post is not sponsored. But, I've been shopping at Zara ever since I was a little girl, and I don't intend to stop.
Thus, I decided to browse their newest additions and pick the items that could easily be part of high fashion looks (aka NYFW etc). I had to step out of my comfort zone a bit, since I buy jeans and jackets all the time, and pick something different.
Please excuse the captions in greek :P Just click the arrows to see everything I picked.
As for my favorites, I have to go with the velvet booties, the baby pink bomber, the military shirt and the nude bag with the keychain. I mean, what's new? XD
What about you guys? What are your faves? What do you love to buy at Zara? Let me know in the comments below♥

FALL 2K16 SHOE TRENDS♡


Oh my god you guys, it's been so flippin long! And the biggest joke here is that I'm not even properly back. I'm technically still on vacay, but I came home for a couple of days, so I thought I would make a post for you. I know, I know, I've been lazy, but I didn't even have internet connection at my beach house. Anyway, I'll be back next week for another one ;)
Today I decided that it's time to leave summer behind. I know that in the US school has already started and August only has like 10 days left. Sadly, we need to come to terms with the fact that summer is coming to an end. But, on the other hand, we can start getting excited about fall. And what's one of the best things about fall? Shoes! Personally, I can't even think about wearing anything other than sandals and flip flops at the moment-even though Kendall is going at it with the OTK boots.
We can finally jump on the bandwagon! Let's see the biggest shoe trends for this fall.

Velvet
Pretty much velvet everything, from sneakers, to sandals, to boots. This soft fabric is in the spotlight this season. It's chic and certainly eye-catching. I love it, but I think that it's a rather uncomfortable material when it comes to shoes. It gets dirty so easily and it's hard to clean it and-god forbid-if it gets wet. As someone who lives in their shoes, I think that velvet shoes sound too high-maintenance.

Decor
On your heels! This is a fun one. What a lovely and genuine way to spice up a basic outfit! So feminine and fashionable. And even if you prefer well, less loud shoes, I think that those black booties with the embellished heel are simply to-die-for! Very fun and unique-just don't overdo it ;)

Biker Boots
Yaaaas! Finally! Last season they were in the "out" list. So, as an avid booties lover, I couldn't be more excited! I think that biker boots go with pretty much everything and they can give a more grungy vibe to any look. I wear them with jeans, dresses, skirts... There are no limits♥

Pearls
How to make a boring shoe interesting? Embellish it! And with not just anything. Pearls are chic and very ladylike. A statement, yet a subtle one. Perfect for the girls who like to keep it classy.

Over the knee
You probably saw that coming! This trend is so not over. In fact, you can now choose from so many different styles. There is something out there for everyone. I think they are so stylish if worn correctly but, being a former volleyball player...aka muscled legs, I find it quite hard to wear any pair of high boots :/ Oh well!

So, what do you guys think? Which of these trends is your favorite for this fall to come? Let me know in the comments below♥

CHIC CROP TOPS♡

Hello my darlings! How are you all? When this post is going up, I will be sunbathing in a beautiful Greek island. Don't hate me for it, I earned it XD I worked hard and now mama needs some rest and fun♥
Anyways, one of my essentials for a summer escape definitely has to be the famous crop top. It has been a cult favorite for so long now and I can totally understand why. But, it's literally everywhere. Everyone and their mother has one and sometimes, they style it in such a wrong way. Don't get me wrong, I think that everyone should be comfortable in their skin, no matter what is their size. But, unless you're Kendall or Gigi or simply have extremely toned abs, it is admittedly hard to look chic with your entire tummy exposed.
That is why I think that high waisted skirts are the perfect pair for a crop top and that, generally, they make the ideal summer combo. It's stylish, trendy and much more feminine and chic than Daisy Dukes. Plus, they're comfy and great for a hot day, especially if you're not a fan of sucking your stomach in all day long (I have some sort of  abs and I still do it all the time :/).
The first look (header) is very girly and I love how it has the prints and the colors and it can still look toned down because of the pastels. Very fresh and modern and you could totally rock it for a date with your s.o. especially if you're still pale. Because these heels are going to make your legs look loooong!
The second one is so fun and playful that I just can't! Off-shoulder top, Marc Jacobs dreamy skirt and...can we just talk about the sneaks? Ummm, need♥ It's more of a sporty yet feminine take on the skirt trend and I'm obsessed.
The third one gives me serious tropical-and D&G feels! The skirt and the sunnies are to die for and I really love how the bag is so trendy and yet such a staple!
The last one is so bohemian and relaxed that I can so easily picture myself wearing it for so many different occasions this summer. I like how it's simple but interesting and definitely not boring at the same time!
So what do you guys think about the looks I put together? Which one is your favorite? How do you style your favorite crop tops? Let me know in the comments below

LOAFERS?!♡

How are you my loves? Tired of everything and everyone like me? In need for some major fashion inspo to get through the week? I got you covered! Life sucks but that doesn't mean our outfits have to suck too XD 
I'm sure you've all noticed that loafers are becoming a thing, well actually they are already a pretty big deal in fashion. Flats in general I would say. So many stylish girls are opting for sneakers instead of heels nowadays. I absolutely love this trend a)because I live in sneakers and biker boots and b)because I love the idea of being stylish and comfortable throughout the day. But, I'm not a big fan of loafers. I used to wear ballerina flats when I was younger, but now I feel that they don't compliment my style or my body shape. 
Loafers are the kind of shoes that I would categorize as man-repellers and, even though they're trendy, I just can't seem to get on board. But, I would be a terrible fashion advisor if I only posted about the stuff I wear.Thus, I decided to curate a couple of loafers that I would kinda sorta might-a wear. Usually the fashion crowd-the Olsens ahem-are pairing them with pants, but I've been seeing them with dresses lately and I do like a good mix n' match.
Here are my loafers of choice and, of course, some style inspo!
Would you guys wear them? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below♥
