British country girl

Good morning sunshines!

My inspiration for today was the British countryside look! And what’s more British than tweed? This stylish and traditional British fabric is usually woven and rough but my version of tweed skirt today is slightly lighter in the traditional “ Prince of Wales” check pattern.
I love this style so much! I was always fascinated by the elegance of British Lords and Ladies in their tweed suits looking so aristocratic!
Through the centuries, this style has remained stylishly smart and classy. It never goes out of fashion and it bounces between classic and contemporary. It has infinite possibilities during autumn and winter and not only is it warm but it smartens an outfit instantly.
I wore my skirt with a rhombus patterned knitted top because as you know I love weird combinations on patterns and because it is also another version of the traditional British clothing.

I completed the outfit with over the knee suede-looking burgundy boots and I wonder whether I should go hunting or golfing?

My stylish friends: Part 3

Hello dolls!

They say that when you meet someone for the first time, you can almost immediately tell if you will hit it off or not! I have to admit that I have changed my mind many times about people but with this beauty here I knew I liked her from the moment we said “ Hi” almost 10 years ago! And although I lost her tracks at some point, the minute we reunited I remembered exactly why we had hit it off!

Besides our similarities in our lifestyles, I remember that one of the first things that I had liked about her was her style!! I loved the way she could pull off her unique looks so naturally! And her hair….awwww her hair. I’m telling you girls, she has the kind of hair we all envy! So voluminous and silky. And the best part….she’s never had it dyed! That’s her natural color (I thought I was the last person in Cyprus with natural color)!!

I admire her discipline in her lifestyle habits (she eats healthily and works out regularly). She is a mother of 2 angels and look at her body for God’s sake! The girl you'd love to hate!
She has a rock style and oh boy, does she rock it all right!!

We enjoyed every moment of it. Thank you Melina, you are a sweetheart!
