Wedding Guest Outfit Tips

Summer equals Wedding Season here in Greece – July was full of our friends’ ceremonies and I couldn’t be happier to attend their most important moments . We travelled a lot (many of them took place in different cities), danced all night , laughed our heads off , got emotional (those first dances made me cry like a baby ) and we made memories that we will discuss for years .

I know that lots of you have some weddings to attend and I also know the struggle of “what to wear to a Summer wedding” so here are my tips for the perfect outfit

  • Choose the style that suits the wedding location . Flowy ,maxi dresses are perfect for a beach/island wedding while playsuits and formal lines match the city vibes .
  • Less is more . As the clothes are on the formal side you should be careful with over accessorising – Choose dainty , fine jewellery if your are going to wear a printed outfit or add a statement necklace to a monochrome dress.
  • You don’t have to break the bank to create a formal outfit.You can wear a simple dress and transform it paired with colourful shoes or an embellished clutch – Just choose good quality fabrics and a statement piece that will make the difference.
  • On the other hand if you want to invest in a fashion piece , a handbag or a pair of shoes are those who worth it .
  • Makeup and hair – If a full face glam look or a braided undo make you feel beautiful go for it , but as I prefer soft makeup and simple hairstyles on my daily life I choose this style on special occasions too.My advice is waterproof mascara and light layers of products for a long-lasting look.
  • Just don’t try too hard – I know that’s a special occasion but effortless outfits always look chic and polished .

Espadrilles Season

Espadrilles season is the best , it means that Summer is here and I can wear my favourite shoes . Espadrilles add a femine,effortless touch to every outfit , they are comfortable but they also give me the extra centimetres that I need ( 1,58cm people ) .

I am a big fan of the Parisian je ne sais quoi style and my girl crush Jeanne Damas -the ultimate French girl – wears the Castaner espadrilles all the time , so they had to be mine . They are the most comfortable shoes ever . I wear them day to night , paired with jeans or Summer dresses and I absolutely love them .

 

You can buy them here in many colours-I started with the nude ones but I want them in black too.

I searched online for the best alternatives as you can find so many good quality Espadrilles – My top choices are these beauties

Handmade Espadilles in my favourite colour , dusty pink with a lace loop – perfection!

I adore stripes and these ones will look great paired with monochromatic outfits and red lipstick (always)

Summer Straw Bags

Straw Bags became my thing this season . They are an effortless chic addition to any outfit and even when you are in the city they make you feel like you are on your Summer Vacation . They give a Summer touch to my basic pieces like T-shirts and jeans but I also love the contrast between their natural textile and my colourful prints or floral dresses . I often wear my straw bags with minimal , monochromatic outfits that neighbor their textile like beige and khaki for a softer look .

We have so many options this season as many brands offer amazing designs , lots of shapes and styles for every occasion paired with patterns and fabrics.

My favourite is the Cult Gaia Ark Bag that I talked about in my S/S Wishlist post ( tick off my list yay!) as it has the most unique design and I love the bamboo material . I  bought the smaller size as I want to wear it everyday but as a clutch too . I ordered it from their site , it’s available in two sizes and different colours and it costs 128$-116E .

I did some online window shopping as one straw bag is not enough when you live in Greece and I found great pieces that I wanted to share with you .

I love this Reclaimed Vintage Straw Backpack  because I can carry so many thing and wear the straw trend at the same time.

ZARA also offers lovely and affordable pieces decorated with leather straps and linen fabrics like this palm tree one or the stripped – love them both .

One of my favorites is the Asos tote which would be the perfect beach bag . Classic design with gingham lining that adds a pop of colour paired with broderie anglaise trim for a romantic touch .

If you want to wear the trend on a night-out you can find smaller straw bags like this cute Shell clutch which reminds me of the Little Mermaid !

You can find so many great designs in different prices and enjoy your Summer in style.Which one is your favorite?I hope that this post helped you to find your Summer Bag , please let me know .

Love Lou!

Τα κλασσικά κομμάτια της γκαρνταρόμπας μου

Άν έπρεπε να περιγράψω το στύλ μου θα ήταν ‘Basic Chic’.Μ’αρέσουν το βασικά κομμάτια,ουδέτερες αποχρώσεις και minimal σχέδια τα οποία μπορώ να φοράω όλη μέρα απ’τις πρωινές υποχρεώσεις μέχρι βραδινές εξόδους.Οι αποχρώσεις της γκαρνταρόμπας μου είναι μαύρο,λευκό και ροζ της πούδρας.Εντάξει έχω και αρκετά φλοράλ κομμάτια ή άλλα με πιό έντονα χρώματα αλλά νιώθω ο εαυτός μου όταν φοράω τα κλασσικά μου σχέδια.

Η αγαπημένη μου επιλογή μπλούζας είναι ένα καλής ποιότητας T-shirt όπως τα συγκεκριμένα από Massimo Dutti τα οποία εφαρμόζουν υπέροχα.Αν τα συνδυάσω με statement σκουλαρίκια και γόβες μπορούν να φορεθούν σε μία βραδινή έξοδο αλλά μπορώ να τα κάνω να φαίνονται πιο casual συνδυάζοντας τα με τζίν και μπαλαρίνες.

Μία πιό κομψή επιλογή είναι τα σατέν top από Intimissimi που δείχνουν υπέροχα με ένα blazer αλλά όπως και με τα T-shirts το τζίν και οι μπαλαρίνες ταιριάζουν επίσης πολύ.Το μαύρο είναι κλασσικό αλλά το ρόζ είναι πιο ρομαντικό.

Μία καλής ποιότητας τσάντα(όχι απαραίτητα κάποιου σχεδιαστή) είναι must γιατί αλλάζει το κάθε σύνολο.Μπορείτε να φορέσετε ένα απλό,οικονομικό φόρεμα και σε συνδυασμό με την τσάντα το αποτέλεσμα θα δείχνει πολύ πιο περιποιημένο.Λατρεύω τις τσάντες αλλά άν έπρεπε να επιλέξω μία απ’τη συλλογή μου θα ήταν η Michael Kors Selma Medium σε μαύρο την οποία μπορώ να φοράω συνέχεια.Η σχέση τιμής-ποιότητας είναι εξαιρετική , η κατασκευή της είναι εκπληκτική ,δεν έχει χάσει καθόλου το σχήμα της , δεν κάνει σημάδια, είναι απλά υπέροχη.

Οι τελευταίες πινελιές είναι τα αξεσουάρ!Ένα minimal ρολόι όπως το Rose Gold Daniel Wellington ταιριάζει με τα πάντα.Είναι κομψό και μου αρέσει να το συνδυάζω με ρόζ-χρυσές βέργες ή να το φοράω μόνο του.Θα μου άρεσε να προσθέσω και το καφέ στη συλλογή μου αλλά δεν μπορείς να κάνεις λάθος με τον συνδυασμό μαύρο-ροζ χρυσό.

Στην Ελλάδα έχει πάντα ήλιο οπότε τα γυαλιά ηλίου είναι απαραίτητα.Τα μεγάλα,μαύρα γυαλιά είναι πάντα τάση και τα Audrey από Celine με κάνουν να φαίνομαι περιποιημένη ακόμα και όταν δεν φοράω μακιγιάζ ή το σύνολο μου είναι πολύ απλό.Είναι διαχρονικά και η ποιότητά τους είναι μοναδική.

Αυτά τα βασικά κομμάτια τα επέλεξα πολύ προσεκτικά γιατί ήξερα ότι θα τα φοράω συνέχεια όπως και έγινε!Τι επιλέγετε εσείς στην καθημερινότητά σας?

Love Lou!

My Fashion Basics

If I had to describe my style it would be “Basic Chic”. I love basic pieces , natural tones and minimal designs which I can wear everyday from running errands to having cocktails with friends . My wardrobe is all black , white or powder pink . Ok I have some floral pieces and some colourful ones but I feel like myself when I’m wearing my basics .

My favorite top choice is a good quality T-shirt like these Massimo Dutti ones which fit me perfectly. They can look evening-ready when worn with a statement pair of earring and heels or I can tone them down with ripped jeans and ballerina flats .

For a touch of elegance I prefer a satin lace camisole from Intimissimi with a blazer on top so I look more put together but I can dress it down with denim and flats as I do with my T-shirts.My black is a classic but I love the powder blush one for a romantic look.

A good quality bag(not necessary designer) is a must as it transforms every outfit . You can wear a minimal , affordable dress and teamed with the bag it appears polished , like you tried more but you only add one piece . I am totally a bag person , I adore them but if I had to choose one it would be my Michael Kors Selma Medium in Black which I wear all the time (you can buy it here) . The balance between price and quality is awesome , it’s so well made , it doesn’t loose its shape , no scratches at all, just perfect .

The final touches, accessories ! A minimal watch like my Rose Gold Daniel Wellington looks great with everything . It’s chic , beautiful and I like wearing it with a rose gold bracelet or on its own . I would love to add the Brown one to my collection but you can’t go wrong with Black and Rose gold.

We live in Greece , it’s always sunny so sunglasses are must-have . Oversized black sunglasses are a fashion statement and my Celine Audrey sunglasses help me look classy and put together even if I’m not wearing any makeup at all or my outfit is super simple . They are timeless, well made, effortless   .

These are my staples which I bought very carefully as I knew that I would wear them all the time and I did ! Which items do you prefer on everyday basis ?

Love Lou !

My S/S 2017 Wardrobe Wishlist

Spring is here in Greece but to be honest it feels like Summer and i can’t wait to visit my favourite Greek Islands.

It’s the time of the year that i spice up my style so i did a little bit of online window shopping to create my S/S ’17 wardrobe wishlist.

It’s always sunny in Greece so a hat is a fashion must-have.This Oysho straw one is affordable and stylish at the same time so i can wear it for any occasion.

Every Summer i buy a new pair of sandals as i wear them 24/7 and Esiot is my favourite Greek brand because the quality is amazing and the designs are so unique.Last year i bought their rose gold Arethousa sandals but the Tholaria in Tabac will be my new wardrobe addition.

I always wear earrings during Summer and when i saw these Isabel Marant gold tone resin ones i fell in love.They are statement pieces which add a chic pop of colour to the outfit.

Navy and white stripes are everywhere this season.I have so many stripe tops and dresses but this off shoulder one from Topshop will look amazing with white jeans and my Esiot sandals, right?

Last but not least the Cult Gaia Ark Bag  in Natural,my Summer dream bag!Can we appreciate this beauty?I see it everywhere, all over my Instagram,Pinterest,every blogger has it, this bag is everything!

This is my S/S 2017 Wardrobe wishlist and i would love to see what you would like to buy this season!

Love Lou!
