Whether we like it or not, fall is already here, and sooner or later, we’ll have to start wearing pants, instead of shorts, or skirts. Thankfully, when you live in a country such as Greece, fall weather isn’t actually very cold, so you can get away with wearing your summer clothes with closed-toe shoes and a cardigan or blazer on top. This look is for those of you who want the summer to last a little bit longer, but also to slowly start wearing warmer clothes. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. The transition can be easy, if you choose lighter colors, to have the illusion that it’s still summer. For today’s outfit we played a lot with light blue and white. Brogues, ballerina flats and slip-ons are weather-appropriate and can take you to work or to shopping in style. Pair your long pants, with a summer top with ruffles, pick a crossbody bag in a light color, and a pair of bright sunglasses, and you have the look! Don’t forget to get a cardigan, or even an umbrella with you, because fall weather can be unpredictable. 😉
Black and red is a timeless combination that can be worn both in winter and in summer. It’s actually one of my favorite combos to wear, because it’s such a classic; you can’t go wrong with these two colors. When I wear black and red together, I always go for a red lip as well. It makes the look so much better, and it brings it all together. Today’s look is based on a very simple and casual off-the shoulder black dress, which, paired with a nice pair of t-strap cat ballerinas it has a more Parisian vibe to it. Especially if you add a nice cross-body red bag, like this one I’m showing here by Furla. It might be the most expensive option of everything I’m showing you today, but bags are “investment” pieces, and if you take good care of them, you can hold them for years and years, and maybe pass them on to your daughter or granddaughter some day. Who knows? Finish off the look with a skinny red leather belt and a minimal 3-tier long necklace for an A+ outfit of the day! Perfect for the morning, the afternoon or the night out! 😉
Sometimes, I’m taking inspiration out of my own outfits and taste, to create the look of the day here, and this time, I got inspired by a pair of culottes I recently bought. Culottes can look amazing if they’re worn the right way, and culotte jumpsuits are very summery, and perfect for the hot weather. Today’s look is almost total white, but not quite. The key piece of this look is of course this striped culotte jumpsuit with the spaghetti straps, that cuts a little bit under the knees. You can pair it with strappy white high heeled sandals, or a pair or mules, if the jumpsuit is too long. If you’re not a fan of heels, you can always wear it with a nice pair of espadrilles, slipons, or espadrille slippers, which are all really good options, and widely available this season. For the bag, I’d either go with a small black & white backpack, or a small cross-body bag. White looks amazing with silver jewelry. A nice skinny cuff bracelet, and long silver earrings are all the jewelry you need in summer. And an updo is recommended, to fight the heat. You can either braid your hair a bit, to give your hairstyle a bit more texture. What do you say?
