Now that the summer is almost over and we have started getting in a new routine it’s time to talk about what we really want for next season: The new H&M collaboration of course!
The official announcement was made a month ago and I have already shared my anticipation via Facebook but now that the time has come,we need to prepare people!
I have decided to have a descent budget this year, as their dresses are always dreamy so I know Im gonna want to buy a few! So Im saving up already. Stay tuned and be ready, November the 2nd is just around the corner!
Volume two of my trip to Santorini and today I’m sharing two more looks from the trip and some more places to visit, today about Oia.
Oia is the most famous area in Santorini and its all about the sunset! We weren’t really lucky on that matter, as during our visit in Oia the sky was a bit clouded so we couldn’t able to fully enjoy it but still we didn’t let that bother us much! We enjoyed the long walks and of course the food!
It’s the time of the year i absolutely hate : Its not yet cold, so you can’t do layers, and its not so hot either. I always find it tricky to combine the two seasons and i end up looking like a mess more than i like to admit!
This year though i might be more in fashion than ever as most of this Fall’s trends are already my fav!
My mom hated it when i used to do that so i was avoiding it for some time. Now though i can’t wait to start again wearing my hair like that!
Some say you are born with style,some others say you grow with it. In any case having a good sense of style and being stylish are two different things. For example,for many (way too many) years I had a great sense of style but I had no style! Do you know what I mean? I was the kind of person that would shop for my friends the best pieces and could chose awesome outfits but always ended up wearing a pair of jeans and a t shirt! Why? Well I was too afraid to show myself to the world. I wanted to blend is growing up and not standing out. Over the years I’ve realized how fashion is a part of expressing myself so I “gave in” the temptation of shopping and exploring all different styles.
For those that are now attempting to find their style here are some simple tricks to help you find your modjo!
Copy an outfit
I know it might not sound nice but if you are at your early 20’s and you think you can’t really decide on how to create a look this is a good way to start. When I was younger I used to check catalogues from Zara,Mango and Forever21 and I would chose an outfit I liked and purchase the entire thing! It wasn’t original but it got me in the right track and after a little while I began exploring and playing with my outfits,gradually creating my own style!
Know what looks good on you
I have big thighs. and I hate it,but that’s another story!! Anyway, I know that I cannot wear a very tight pencil skirt cause this makes my thighs look huge! So guess what: I don’t! Just because something is a huge trend or cause it’s what you like doesn’t mean you should wear it! Find your weak spots and hide them while you highlight all your assets!
Keep it simple
I know Chiarra Ferragni is causing a scene with her Fashion Week outfits but ladies she is a pro! Don’t just go out with one sneaker and one heel just to provoke. Begin with outfits you feel comfortable with and make you feel pretty!
Invest in key pieces
Regardless of your age group there are some pieces you can’t go wrong with! Try have few aces to your sleeves for your “rainy” days. The little black dress of example is a piece that might stay in your closet for many years and with the right accessories it can look like new every time! A good coat, a pair of dark skinny jeans and a nice blazer are also very important in a girl’s closet.
Now that’s the most important!! For me this feels like playing dress up! The clothes,the makeup,the accessories..! You are supposed to have fun with the process and feel good about yourself and your body. No matter what,enjoy life!!

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!
I had to face great temptation today at HM conscious exclusive release party. As you know during my capsule wardrobe attempt I cannot do any shopping. Image how hard it was for me to see all these gorgeous clothes and not be able to shop! Thank God my sister decided to buy me an early Easter present so now I can sleep tonight! 😂😂
