I have already mentioned (more than once) my admiration for the talented designer Athina Korda. I first saw her at AXDWeek 2 years ago and ever since i have been checking her. Every year I adore more and more her style and aesthetics. Her love for black and geometric figures add a twist in every design. Her latest collection ” Mute” has influences from the ocean’s movement. Blue depicts the waves, black the power and mystery of the ocean and white the sand. It has to be my favorite collection so far and i feel like she is growing as a designer in every collection!
Those following my Instgram account might have noticed how much affected I’ve been with summer and how I’ve already done my summer shopping! No 1 item (obviously) has been the swimsuit!
Although i wont be continuing my capsule wardrobe this summer too i am determined to keep it simple and not to overdo it. So I only buying things that will elevate my wardrobe, without spending a fortune. So here is what i have come up with so far! I have already bought the one piece from Zara but I’m definitely getting a bikini too!
I’m coming London!! Oh I can’t tell you how much I’ve missed London. I have a huge list with all the places I’ll go and of course a shopping list! And you know I still have to be true to my capsule wardrobe so the only things I can buy are the items missed from my summer capsule wardrobe and presents (I think I’m gonna bring a lot of presents back!!). So for now,I will share with you my packing tips and my signature vacation styles for great casual looks!
My number one item is my faux leather bikers jacket. It’s a great must and goes with everything! Mine is from forever21 but similar styles you can find in most stores.
Plain t-shirts are also a must in my luggage. In white and black I love wearing them with many necklaces and a laced bra under them, to give a more girly and stylish vibe. They are also super comfy and I want to be stress free on my vacay.
A dress always comes in handy!Since I’m not gonna be partying or anything I decided not to include any formalwear. That’s why I’ll only bring a nice spring colorful dress for my everyday walks and I’ll pair it with black tights and heels in case I decide to go for a drink!
Shirts are great both for everyday looks but also for night outs. I’ll pair them with my boyfriend jeans and a t-shirt in the mornings and with nice jewelry and tights at night.
For the second time I need to state my full support and admiration for Mrs Marina Vernicos and Creaid. For those reading for the first time about it,Creaid is a non profitable organization dedicated to help those in need and raise awareness in order to relieve weak social groups.
Each action of Creaid has an artistic side too. Their second fundraising event is called “Designer Lights” and all the funds raised will be used to create a playground for Athens General Children’s Hospital.
Greek designers,architects and artists were invited to design their own light. All items will be auctioned online and will be presented in an exhibition until April 10th in Athens.
Best of luck to Creaid’s second event! Please visit the website and make sure you bid on your favorite (I personally cannot decide which I love most!) item and support Creaid’s work!
Unveiling little bit more about my capsule wardrobe today I’ll share few more pics and tips and I’ll focus a bit more on the shoes, as I hadn’t shared any pics in the original post.It’s officially the 32nd day of the project and oh what a surprise(!!!) I haven’t bought any clothes! So far it all works smoothly, I haven’t gotten tired of my outfits and in fact (due to a terrible cold that kept me indoors for few days) there are plenty of lighter clothes that I haven’t even worn once! That means I still have at least another month of exploring my wardrobe before getting bored.
As you might remember, I preferred fewer shoe options just to keep 3-4 more tops for my wardrobe. I’m not a shoe addict (😳😳) so it wasn’t a very tough decision to make. I kept 2 pairs of booties for the office or a night out and also kept the most comfy,trendy, “me” shoes I had.
