SUMMER BOOTS

With the Crew♥
Hey guys! How are you all? I expected to feel sadder since I will go back to Paros next summer(feels so far away :/), but it turns out that exhausted has become a part of me this year. The truth is that those 10 days weren't exactly what I'd call relaxing and doing nothing. I had so little time to do so many things, but it was amazing. So, it feels good to back in the comfort of my beloved room for a couple of days before leaving again for Crete this time. 
I've always been a big fan of boots, especially ankle booties. But it has come to my attention that many women find it difficult to incorporate them in their summer style. So, in the mood for packing and being stylish and comfortable, I decided to share with you different ways to wear ankle boots during summer.
The first set(top) is the perfect example since nobody really thinks summer when they see these dreamy Saint Laurent boots. Nor when they see the bag. But that's why I'm here right? This is probably a look for those of you who don't like bright colors and pop-out prints. Here I wanted to make the outfit a little more interesting, pair different prints and take it from girly to rocker. But you could definitely change the skirt with distressed denim shorts.
It's just one thing that's killing me♥
For the second look I decided to go a little more boho. These are actually combat boots, but you get the point. Neutral tones with a pop of color from the eye-catching Hipanema stack.
I'm so fancy you already know♥
The third one is perfect for a chilly summer night. I love throwing a slouchy cardigan or an oversized shirt on top of everything, just to make things a little more casual and effortless. Layering is key after all.
The last one is the girliest of them all, but you can switch the dress for a pair of jean shorts and a white top. You can tell I'm into the Hipanema bracelets, can't you? 
Not even Marilyn Monroe ^*
It's really much easier than you think. In most cases, ankle boots look perfect when they replace sandals in a look. They dress-up your outfit though, so make sure not to overdo it. Just have fun with it!

TRAVELWEAR

TFIOS ♥

Hey guys! I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a while. I feel so bad, not only because I want to update my blog with new stuff for you as often as possible, but also because it makes me happy to blog about the things I like. But, as I've told you before, I'm going through a very difficult period and I have no time left. In addition to that, the Wi-Fi stops working every five minutes so I can't do anything. I can't do some research, find new stuff, post on the blog, watch videos... It's down as we speak.
Simply amazing♥
But let's get to the point now. I know that a lot of you are about to go on vacation. We've talked before about the things you need to pack, but there is another big question that needs to be answered. What to wear when you travel. The truth is that there is no right answer to that. But if I had to choose, I'd say, something comfortable. This doesn't necessarily mean sweatpants and pajama-like style. If you are like Victoria Beckham, it means stilettos, if you are like most people it means flats, and if you are like me, it means jeans. But it also depends on the destination and, of course, on the way you are choosing to get there. 
Now I realise...
Let's start with the plane. Even if where you're about to go is tropical and extremely hot, the odds are that you're about to get cold on the plane. It's the air conditioning. But, no worries. The key is to dress smart. Choose your outfit, whether it's polished or casual and keep it warm with long pants. I always go for pants over skirt, but that's just me. Pair your tank top, t-shirt or sleeveless blouse (or dress) with a slouchy cardigan, a light-wear hoodie, an over-sized shirt, even a blazer. Here I added a leather jacket, but this seems a little too much. But again, it depends. 
Where did the flowers go?
If you insist on wearing heels, then opt for a lower or thicker heel. My ideal case would be ankle booties. This way, your outfit will still look more put together but also effortless and completely stylish.
Now you're just somebody that I used to know!
If you travel by boat or by car/bus somewhere warm, then you can go for shorts or skirts, if that's your thing. My only hesitation is that you don't know where you'll be sitting and what has touched this seat. So maybe you don't want your bare legs touching that. Just saying.
Even if it’s warm, it’s always a good idea to bring some extra cover-up, just in case. If you’re travelling by boat, at night to an island, then you shouldn’t even consider not taking something to keep your arms from chills.
I never part with my beloved converse when I travel. Sneakers, loafers, ankle boots and espadrilles are definitely a better choice than flip-flops for numerous reasons that I’m not going to state now.
\All over^*
Add a bag big enough to fit all your necessities in it, passport, book, phone, headphones, gum, sanitizer, wipes etc. and you are good to go. I like to use a backpack or a tote that I can throw over my shoulder to keep my hands free. But again, these are comfort issues and are completely up to you.
Spend more time worrying about your ticket and passport than worrying about your clothes. Dress smart and comfy and enjoy travelling
