5 vacation essentials for a stylish trip

Oh it’s finally June everybody! May wasn’t my month (like,at all!) so I’m trying to work with whatever life brings me along the way..
Anyway, I have two more weeks of work and after that I’m planning on taking few days of and finally enjoy life! I absolutely love summer,mainly because the weather puts me in a more fashionable mood!

Dresses is my No1 choice (by faaaaarrrr!!) so this is the first thing I buy for summer and the first thing I grab from my closet!
I m totally in love with these two Zara dresses I bought last week and I feel they are the best for a morning look or a relaxed evening.
I do wear shorter dresses too if it’s very hot,but generally I prefer them for a more sexy and Vgirly evening look.

The fedora hat is also essential. I know I’ve mentioned it a gazillion times but when you go on vacations trust me you’ll love having it!

The gladiator sandals was the absolute trend the past year! This summer the frenzy continues with a variety of designs and most brands have added at least one version of these amazing and comfy shoes!

The obvious must have is the bikini! (Dah)
This season I’m all about color! Although usually much more conservative in going for bright colors this time as It would look insanely gorgeous when I’m tanned!

Now when you’re on vacation you spend a lot of time at the beach or by the pool. So your bag needs to fit all your stuff and some more! But you don’t want to bring 10 different bags for your trip, right? So one stylish big bag could do the trick: have it with you by the beach and still make it wearable for a nice summery relaxed evening look.

Ralph Lauren treats (or how to wear a polo shirt) 


Every girl has a thing for brands. But we can’t all afford a luxurious couture wardrobe so IT girls gotta find another way to do so. For me it’s the outlet stores. I know I’ve mentioned this more than once but it’s a real treasure for me! The closet one is McArthurGlen in Athens so I’m a frequent there! My first stop is always the Ralph Lauren store.
For me it’s a small piece of heaven hidden just few minutes away from home! I absolutely adore their collection and although it’s an outlet I always find A-class quality items in reasonable prices.

Why a Zara wardrobe ain’t a bad idea 

It just ain’t! Period! My mum always complains about my shopping addiction with Zara, but I Just can’t help it! You know the thing is,when you find a brand that fits all your needs and standards you can’t just ignore it!
I have experimented a lot with commercial brands over the years and every now and then I find clothes that fit well and I can enjoy. But when it comes to shopping that depicts my style then Zara is always my first stop. 
95% of my jeans and trousers come from Zara. I have a pear figure so their jeans fit perfectly even in size 34,which is a great boost for my confidence!
When it comes to professional looks this is also my choice,as I can afford quite a few blouses -especially on sales- and their jackets are amazing.My only complain is their bags’ quality,as in most cases it’s not comparable to the quality the rest of their products has. But I can live with that!

Summer shopping list

I know it’s not even May yet but I’ve always been in favor of planning in advance! Mid-season sales is also around the corner so I’m making my shopping list today!

First and most important purchase for summer is the playsuit. Ideally with prints or in denim! The most affordable playsuits I have in my list come from Forever21, Zara and H&M ! The price is also a plus and this way I can buy few playsuits and stock for summer!

Dress to Impress: Girls’ night out

After seeing how much you enjoyed this section I decided to include one more scenario today!
This time it’s time to dress to impress for a night out with the girls!
My main goal when going out with my friends is to feel comfortable in my clothes. You have to keep in mind that girls often feel threatened from one another so you don’t wanna look as if you were to steal your best friends boyfriend! You shouldn’t intimidate your friends (or them you as a matter of fact) but you have to stay true to your style too.

I usually avoid exaggeration and keep it simple yet eye-catching. Unless I go out with girls way taller than me I avoid high heels,choosing booties during winter and a nice pair of sandals for summer.

A nice pair of jeans, a plain white t shirt and a long jacket is all I need! Make sure you accessorize a bit to create a more glamorous look!

Since living in Greece summer is my time of a year! So obviously I feel so much better creating looks around this time. For a night out I definitely recommend a nice long dress with a belt to create a more sexy figure and of course a big clutch! Bracelets is the key for a look like that as you don’t really need much,especially if you wear a patterned dress and not a single colored.

Spring Love

Oh how I love spring! The colors,the smells,the sunshine.. For some reason this year spring hasn’t arrived on time. The weather is still more chilly than usually but that only makes me craving for spring more day by day! So obviously I’m using my Polyvore account to create all the looks I wish to wear this spring! Florals,pastels and long dresses are by definition my favorites for spring!
I absolutely adore jeans in pastel colors like beige,off pink,surf green and pale yellow! I think you can easily create an effortless look without much fuzz. Amazing for a day in the office or a weekend trip!
Floral shirts are also a must for spring and especially this year it’s the most obvious solution to all your wardrobe problems.
