?MORE OR LESS? #6

?More or less? #6
I hope you all had a great time with your beloved ones these days, and that you ate a lot(I know the greek ones did). Easter is over but to cheer you up, another More or less set is here, for those of you who are ready to embrace the warm weather. I've said it before and I will say it again until the weather decides to stop changing all the time. It's almost May, yet it's still chilly outside. Grey clouds are not exactly the best motivation to wear shorts and tank tops. But if you are brave enough, those warmer days, do it with style. Sure, jean shorts are classic life-saving pieces, but why not wear a stylish denim overall? It certainly adds that extra something to any outfit. The mariniere, apart from a must-have staple, is also a great transitional piece. I just felt I needed to add the bright bag to spice things up. Otherwise the whole outfit was a little moody for spring and, also, yellow is a huge trend this season. Lately, I've been obsessing over gladiator sandals and fedoras, especially since I started to put together outfits for Coachella. Again, they both go with everything and make a statement without overdressing your everyday look. Let's go now to the product that raises the price of the entire outfit, the eye pendant. As I've said before, I'm really into gold jewelry and, even though I am a big fan of statement pieces, I keep searching for cute dainty ones to kinda balance things up. So you'll either spot me wearing big statement earrings, rings, bangles or a necklace (not all together of course) or tons of small gold jewelry. I really like eyes, which are also making a comeback this summer. The price of this pendant by Ileana Makri may be a little over the top, but what do you expect when you hear 18k gold, diamonds and sapphires? Even without it, the price is still really high, since I added the Zanottis(guilty^^) 
What do you think of these outfits? Would you wear them? Which one do you prefer? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think and like my new page on Facebook.

MY GREEK LITTLE PARADISE-NAFPLIO

Those of you who follow me on Instagram probably know that I went on a small trip to Nafplio last week. Just a small getaway to let off steam and have fun with friends. It was amazing! Nafplio was actually the first capital of Greece and, since it is so close to Athens, I've been there many times. But I love this place so much, I never get bored of it. It's a city near the sea, with cute little alleys and important history. Most of these photos were taken from the castle Palamidi, which has an amazing view of the entire city and the sea. As I've said before, I am deeply in love with the sea. I truly believe that us Greeks can't live away from the blue. It's in the sky, in the sea, in our flag, inside every single one of us. Did you know it's believed that the colors of the greek flag come from the blue of the sky and the sea and the white of the waves? I don't know if everyone here loves the sea as much as I do, but I know that if I never saw it again I would be miserable. I consider myself blessed I have the chance to live in such a wonderful country and visit all these amazing beautiful places. I may be a big-city girl to the bone, but I have our blue waters deep inside my heart. Enough with that, I'll just let you enjoy the beautiful city of Nafplio, hoping that one day you'll go visit it, if you haven't already.
What do you think of these photos? Have you ever been to Nafplio? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think.

DIS OUI À LA VIE

Today, I want to introduce to you a jewelry brand, Vinca! Created by Amanda Dimova in 2006, this line based in Austin Texas, consists in creative and unique pieces suitable for any age. Unusual, fun, made by silver, wood and acrylic, cut by the designer herself. In addition to her creativeness, she makes it her mission to donate thousands of dollars worth of jewelry to charity and she also creates special designs to raise money for specific causes. 
{I really like this song btw}
If you want a taste of what you can find in her collection, take a look at this adorable necklace they sent me. The truth is that it took me a while to choose which one of their pieces I wanted, but I finally decided. This necklace says "oui" which means "yes" in french. I just thought that apart from being super cute, it also reflects the motto we should have in our lives. We should be optimistic and open to new things, willing to take risks and not be afraid to live. We should say yes to life, to love, to happiness!
You can find this and many more adorable pieces at their website www.vincaUSA.com. Do you like the necklace I chose? Which one of their collection is your favorite? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!

COACHELLA 2014

Coachella: Mix n' Match
It's this time of the year. When people all around the globe are getting ready to have the time of their lives. They get dressed and leave for a beautiful place to hear some amazing artists perform and party. Yes, I'm talking about coachella! The festival that music legends such as The Beatles, Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix have attended making it legendary itself. Many things to plan before you go there. Where to stay, what to pack... And of course, what to wear! Unfortunately, I've never been there and I'm not going this year either, but I swear that I will go some day! Of course this doesn't mean that I can't give you some fashion advice. Whenever I hear Coachella, only one word comes to mind. Bohemian! Boho chic, boho romantic or boho rock, that's up to you! I'm just going to give you some tips considering what I would wear myself. Some must-haves if you want to. I know I say fringes way too much but I don't mean to wear them all together. Just one piece with fringes at a time is enough! Also, some people say that the floral crown trend is over but I think they are Coachella appropriate. So these are my options and some words to get exactly what I mean.

Ankle boots: Stylish, comfy, leather, suede, go with everything
Gladiator sandals: Statement piece, perfect for warm weather
Shorts: Jeans or a fun print like floral or tribal, comfy, amazing
Cropped tops: White, lace, fringes, bustiers, ethnic
Ethnic jewelry: Gold, fringes, layers, statement, boho
Waistcoats: Jean, leather, lace, patterns, fringes, earth tones
Crossbody bags: Fun colors, animal prints, fringes, free your hands, dance, eat, drink easily
Floral crowns: Well, yeah, floral crowns...!
Retro sunglasses: Round, floral, crazy styles

I guess that's it! Do you like it? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think and follow me on Polyvore if you want to check out my latest sets!
