STYLE FILE: FALL SLIDES ♡

Good evening darlings! How are you all these first few days of fall? Can you believe it's September already? I can't. It feels like summer just flew by so fast, but I guess that's what always happens. Anyway, I'm really pumped for fall because I could really use a break from the suffocating summer heat and I can't wait to put together some great fall posts for you guys♥

I also have been dying to go back to fall clothing and makeup. You guys know that I am a sucker for jackets, boots dark lipstick and nails. But, we still have some time till we reach that point. 

For now, we are trying to create transitional outfits that won't let us down while the weather is still hot. Now, the last summer item that I find myself parting with are shoes. I mean, even during the winter you can wear your sandal heels (with or without tights).


In September it's easy to wear jeans and sandals. But, if you want to be more city-appropriate and stylish af, I suggest you opt for slides. These past few seasons they have been all over the place and, even though I was a bit sceptical at first, I have grown quite fond of them. Especially the extravagant ones with the feathers/ pearls etc, since they are the ideal way to dress up a simple outfit. All you need to spice up a total black outfit, is a pair of fun and daring slides. 


Also, since my feet get super cold during the winter, I find that now is the perfect time to wear them. They are trendy, chic, comfortable and quite versatile. You can wear them with jeans, dresses, skirts, shorts and there are so many different styles to choose from. You could go for the leather Gucci ones that are very polished and office appropriate, for the suede camel colored ones if you want to embrace the fall mood, or choose a pair with fur, prints etc if you are feeling playful and adventurous.

Personally, I am very much enjoying my slides! What about you guys? What is your go-to shoe choice for early fall? Let me know in the comments below ♥

BLOUSE SHIRT WISHLIST ft. ZAFUL ♡

Hello my darlings! Are you enjoying the last days of summer in your trendy blouse shirt from Zaful? I'm just trying to relax and recharge and get some vitamin D before I get back to my hectic everyday schedule. To be honest though, I'm kinda excited to see what the new season has to offer ♥

One of the reasons I like the early fall is the weather. It's not too hot nor too cold (most of the days) and you can do a lovely mix and match with your summer and your fall clothes and be stylish af. I feel like one key element in most closets this time of the year, is the shirt. Not only it is very classy and, without a doubt, a timeless staple, but it's also quite versatile.

You can wear it in so many different ways, with jeans, shorts, chinos, skirts and even on it's own as a dress. You can layer it with a sweater or a stylish jacket or use it as a cover-up for the beach. The possibilities are endless and you could say that a shirt is a safe bet when you are in doubt.

Thus, I teamed up with Zaful to share with you some of my favorite shirts from their website!

WEDDING GUEST STYLE GUIDE ♡

Hello my loves! How is your summer going so far? Mine has been crazy. Extremely busy, full of unexpected events and some amazing experiences that I can't wait to share with you. If you care for a glimpse, you can go check out my Instagram account (@helena_tsk). I really do hope that August will be good to us all. ♥

Anyway, as you may know, wedding season is still very much on. I mean, what better time to celebrate your love for your s.o. than now that the sun is shinning so bright? Being only 20 years old, wedding isn't currently in my short term bucket list. Nonetheless, I can still offer you my style advice.

In my previous post, we discussed the do's and don'ts of wedding gift giving and today we're going to talk about your clothes. Aka I'm trying to make you the best and most stylish wedding guest ever šŸ˜‚ First, let me give you some tips that will help you survive a summer wedding. 

Choose lightweight fabrics

In my book, being Greek and all, summer equals some serious amounts of heat. Hence, you need to be dressed accordingly. Pick something airy and flowy and, preferably, stay away from anything too tight. The last thing you need is everyone staring at your sweat stains. You want to breathe properly and be comfortable for the long evening that awaits you. 

Be careful with the patterns

It is well known that summer wakes our inner flower child. Yes, bohemian vibes may be your ish, but for a wedding, you may want to consider toning it down a little bit. You don't want to look like a hippie or overdo it with crazy patterns. If you want your outfit to be more summer appropriate, you could opt for a monochromatic look with a nice color (not too bright).
If you are into color-blocking, stick with the pastels. Baby blue and rose quartz look a lot classier than hot pink and vivid turquoise.



Consider your poor feet

Some women can walk on stilettos with swag all day and others can't make a single step without tripping. Maybe you can practice or maybe that's just how things are. But, when it comes to a wedding, you need to be very thoughtful about the shoes that you pick. 
First of all, keep in mind that many summer weddings take place outdoors. While I want to think of myself as very skilled when it comes to walking (and dancing) on heels, I can't even stand the thought of doing that on grass, sand or anything other than solid ground. So you may want to keep that in mind before choosing sky high heels.
Luckily, fashion has evolved enough for us not to be required to wear heels to look formal or stylish and you can find amazing flats for any occasion.

Other than my tips, I highly suggest you take the following style guide into consideration:


And if you don't own a suit appropriate for the occasion? Worry not. You can always check out the tuxedo & suit rentals that The Black Tux has to offer! (hint: Christian Grey would approve)

Anyway, these are just some guest style suggestions. At the end of the day, keep in mind that you need to stay true to your personal style an aesthetic and simply adjust it to fit each event. Just be you boo ;)

SPRING COLORS ft. BONOBOS ♡ [part1]

Hello my loves! I hope that life is treating you amazing this month. I now that I've been MIA for so long, but my schedule has been so overwhelming lately. I can barely find the time to breathe properly so I hope you can excuse my absence. My finals are right around the corner and I just can't wait (#not). 
Anyway, today I wanted to lighten up the mood a little and talk about some spring trends and colors. I teamed up with Bonobos to create some spring His & Hers outfits and share them with you. In case you haven't heard of them, Bonobos.com is the place to visit if you are looking for high quality fashion forward menswear. 
For this project, I was inspired by some men's outfits that they put together and I styled some for the girls myself, based mostly on my favorite color palette for spring. I know that everyone has a different perspective when it comes to spring. During the winter, we all tend to gravitate towards darker colors but, when the weather starts to get warm, we start drifting a bit. 

Some prefer prints, some prefer pastels, some neons and some just like to stick to the good ol' neutrals. Personally, I tend to stick to the neutrals and add a pop of color or mix n' match some prints. It's all about balance in my book. Lucky for me, the trendiest colors this spring are all I have in my closet! I just adore denim, dusty pink and khaki!
The first male outfit is very laid back and I love how they paired the stripes with the bandana and the different hues of blue.
Just peachy ♥
To go with it, I decided to play with denim on denim and add some pops of red. That could easily work with blush as well, if you're not feeling particularly bold. I like how we stick to the classic blue and red but, also, how it's fashionable and not boring at all. As for the embellished denim, you know it holds a special place in my heart. Also, how awesome are those mules?
Let's be honest here. Is there anything more basic atm than a khaki bomber? Probably not. But it's just so versatile and it looks so good. We're not used to seeing it paired with blue, so that's a nice change and I prefer the patterned bermuda shorts from the plain old denim.
Ever just the same...
Don't you just love the jeans on the hers outfit? The cut and the hem are so 2017 and the butterflies make them so much more interesting and unique. I feel that it's such a cute outfit that you can wear to so many different occasions. It's stylish yet laid back and many different girls can pull it off.
This guy is all about mixing the light neutrals and I love it. It takes guts to wear such light colors. Thus, I think he wouldn't mind dating a girl who isn't afraid to take risks. 
Just like you ;)
That floral ensemble is to die for. It's very airy and bohemian and I like how the black tones it down and goes so nicely with the sandals. I could easily see these two lovebirds strolling around in the city!

So, this is the first part of the looks I put together. I love them all equally and I would easily wear them any day. I think they incorporate many of the styles and the colors I've been loving lately.
