There I was one day, walking on Halkithiki’s town streets after a long day at the beach, when I saw the most beautiful white kaftan dress I have ever seen. I kid you not when I say it was the most beautiful kaftan dress ever. The fabric was fantastic and when I asked the lady in the store how much it was, I was shocked it was only 30 euros. Since I had no cash I quickly went home to retrieve some money, just to arrive 15 minutes later missing the last kaftan sold to a very nice German lady.
I have tried to purchase something similar ever since but I can’t seem to find the perfect one. I hope next time I go to Greece I will find it…somewhere…I don’t care if I have to haunt down that German lady.
Today’s fashion inspiration is the lovely and airy kaftan dress.
This is similar to the dress I was talking about:
I have a little boho-girl who lives inside me. She rarely comes out, but when she does, it’s all about relaxed dresses and numerous rings.
I have been looking for the perfect boho hat lately and I am still on that mission. So for today’s fashion inspiration I found some gorgeous pictures of what I call “the boho hat”.
1) Here you can find numerous styles of this hat.
2) The Urban Outfitters one.
3) Summery feeling.
When I first saw this kind of shoe, I didn’t like it at all. I thought: it was either a wedge or a sneaker. But after I saw this gorgeous spanish blogger’s pick, I fell in love with the trend.
There I was one day on a shopping trip looking at the Isabel Marant’s sneaker prices and had second thoughts about it. So I gave up on them temporarily. Walking by I saw the Zara window and there they were waiting for me: electric blue sneaker wedges. Fantastic price and the last pair was my size. To make a long story short, I love my little acquisition.
Here they are:
I have brown eyes and I have learned what colors suit me and what colors make me look like I had a fight with a makeup artist.
Gold looks good on brown eyes because it is part of that color palette (what the heck, gold look good on everything!). I like to wear a smoky eye and then fill it with gold on the inside crease. Sometimes I wear black liner on the top lid and a small golden line under the eye. Looks pretty good if you ask me.
On the bottom I have posted three makeup tutorials I found on Youtube. Enjoy!

My mom loves stripes when it comes to clothing. At first, I did not like them because they looked weird on me. Then as I got older, I found out that not every type of stripe is for every type of body. So I was using them wrong. Wide stripes do not look good on me so now I choose thinner ones. For this week’s inspiration (thanks mom) I chose navy stripes.
Let’s just pretend we have some white shorts, a navy striped shirt, bare-feet and some sunglasses walking in the beach… Sounds lovely to me.
I have been in love with backless dresses since I can remember. In fact, I love any piece that is backless. I remember always searching for anything that had no back. I still have a golden metallic top from when I was a teenager. I can’t seem to detach from it. It’s sexy and chic. But remember, there is always a limit between being classy and showing your butt line. Yes, there is.
1) Black sequins dress
2) Maxi open back dress
3) Lovely peach backless dress
4) I love this one
Nothing reminds me of summer like neon colors do.I love them.
I started using neon nail polish and I really like how colorful my hands look. I also like how a bright pink or a fluorescent yellow can brighten any black outfit!
Bright accesories, colorful shoes and statement dresses can all stand out with a punch of neon.
Where I live, we have approximately ten months of sunny days and only two partially chillier months. No drastic wardrobe changes from season to season. But the weather does get a little hotter in June so I usually leave the cardigans and jackets at home before I go out. (I am always cold though).
I like to celebrate Summer by wearing more neon colors, long maxi dresses and colorful pieces. I gathered some pictures for my Summer inspiration.
When I was a little girl I used to have this bright yellow dress that I always wore. It made me feel shiny and happy. Every time I wear yellow I get in a good mood and sometimes without even thinking about it I wear it to cheer me up.
My inspiration for this week is yellow pieces that can be worn with black and white or even be bold and mix it up with a turquoise or dark grey for a chic contrast.
You know those girls who look effortlessly chic? They throw anything on and they instantly look gorgeous? Well, I am not one of them. I try to plan my outfits the night before so in the morning I don’t look like a crazy person. But there is something very appealing when you keep your outfit relaxed. So when I saw this picture I thought to myself what a great inspiration it is and I am planning on doing my own version of this outfit.
Meanwhile I will share the alternative version of Olivia Palermo’s outfit for this week’s Fashion Wednesdays.
1) White blazer that goes practically with anything.
2) This basic piece is hidden in every wardrobe.
3) Boyfriend jeans.
4) Neutral flats.
5) With this outfit, I believe any handbag would pair nicely, but my pick would be this one.
6) Cat eye sunglasses.
There was a time in my life where I took the “traveling comfortably” motto very seriously. My outfits consisted in black sweat pants, Nikes and a black hoodie. I didn’t look bad, I just looked like a I was going to hit the treadmill. So with time I learned I could be nicely dressed and still be comfortable. I try to avoid anything too tight because I know how uncomfortable plane seats are. So I always stick with jeans, white shirt, nice cardigan and ballet flats. If my flight is short I like to wear heels and on longer flights I wear ballet flats, it all depends on your fashion personality and preferences.
Please try to avoid flip-flops. It doesn’t matter if you are going straight to the beach once you land, flip-flops are a no-no unless you are at the pool or at the beach. (Or if you are getting a pedicure and going straight home.)
I always bring a shawl in my carry-on because I am always cold. If my flight is really long I do bring black sweatpants and a black hoodie to change before going to sleep and immediately change to my normal clothes before landing.
Here are some pictures I found that are this week’s “Airport fashion inspiration”:
