Floral





Hello flowers!

I love floral! Half of my summer dresses are floral and I still can’t get enough! And since I’ve always loved that pattern, why not a floral bikini this time?  We all have one, whether is a bikini top, bottom or set!
Floral is a pattern that is always in fashion, especially in summer (but not exclusively! There are many winter floral patterns as well)!

It is playful, happy, fun and glamour with a bit of 1980’s style! And you can easily match it with any other color you want. You can even mix 2 different floral patterns. Whatever looks good in your eyes is good for your soul!

Bisous!

Color games




Well hello there again!

What do we all want in life? We are just trying to find some color in a black and white world. Well, if you are searching for color inspiration, just go to Greek islands! Every time I am there, it’s like a color game for me! You can’t go wrong with any color you choose because the white and blue of the Cycladic islands is so amazing that whatever you wear stands out! As a summer girl, for me summer = colors = happiness!!!
However, I went through a period that I hated pink! I wouldn’t be seen dead in it! I thought it was wayyy too “girlie” and fake. But since we should never say never I came to realize that it’s all in the combination!
And one color that I love with pink is red! It might sound weird as a combination since they are both quite intense and bright colors but somehow I love the result. Especially on tanned skin and with the blue and white of the island as a background.
As a paper bag waist trousers lover, I found this bright pink in Zara during sales and I had to take it with me to the islands!
And speaking of islands, the photos were taken in Paros, specifically in Naousa and I have to tell you that I fell in love with every corner of it! Let my post song (which is a little different today J ) take you there….

Cheers!

Plunging neckline





Aloha sweeties!

So...I’m not a conservative dresser. I mean I have my share of short skirts and cropped tops! However, there was one kind of style I was always a little…uncomfortable wearing. And that’s the deep plunge. I loved seeing it on other women but I was always a little worried about wearing it. Maybe the thought of a “wrong move” that would reveal parts of my body not supposed to be revealed was a bit terrifying (deep plunge calls for braless usually).  After some serious observation I was now sure that deep plunge and big breasts equals tacky! So girls with smaller breasts are more likely to pull off that style without the risk of looking….erm….kitsch?
Wanting to overcome my “fear”, I ordered a dress from ASOS which I really liked and I hoped for the best. My initial reaction was “ok, I’m probably never wearing this” but on a second thought, I decided to try it on with a discreet bra, or why not, a bikini top! Bikini tops are less “threatening” than bras (even though some bras are really cute and can be passed for bikini tops). And as I said many times before, island life forgives a little bit of experimenting!

TIP: If you go for the deep plunging neckline, choose a dress/top with long sleeves. It looks more classy in my opinion!




















Eye rolling? Hmmm....what did I see?
