Downtown Athens, 01.17.15

IMG_0391

I am a sucker for the tiniest bit of colorful art and Downtown Athens is full of it. Put one and one together and voilà, you can always find me in front of a vibrant graffiti or a kaleidoscopic drawing.

I am also a sucker for bomber jackets, the more Grease-like the better. So this brand new H&M lilac piece was a very welcome addition to my closet, that I plan on wearing a lot. Purple tones are apparently having a comeback so get your lavender s*it together before its too late.

Mauve painted nails get extra points.

Wearing bomber jacket H&M (an embellished version here, a baseball version here), sleeveless knit Zara, jeans H&M, Dunk SKY sneakers Nike, pearl headband Zara (on sale), leather bag Reiss (a nice alternative here)

Walking Rainbow

A friend of mine told me I should dress in all black.

This is my answer. 

Rainbow yeti spotted in downtown Athens, taking pictures of anything combining more than 3 colors, seeing everything pink (like the rest 6 days of the week) and enjoying THAT Greek sun (magic country much?). Did a little bit of shopping too to help with the mood cramps. 😉

It worked.

Wearing this (pretty awesome) Asos faux fur, skinny jeans, Pull & Bear fringed leather sneakers (a similar white version here), Wildfox mirrored sunglasses, long sweater, Unicorn iPhone case

Beachbum Winter Edition

We may lack in beaches at the (cold) moment but as far as idling is concerned I’m 100% there. Fully supportive of the habitual loafing, beachbum is a state of mind. Which I proudly possess. So I take my carefree mental state and move from the beach to the chalet (could be a shed too).

Problem solved.

Pom Poms are a knits best friends

If you ARE going to wear a chunky, oversized knit and find the courage 1.to take pictures of yourself and 2. glance at those pictures looking like you’ve instantly gained 10 pounds, then the least you can do is add a playful touch to this sartorial nightmare (summer lovers united) to make heavy winter a tad more bearable. It’s all in the details and everything (at least closet-wise) has a soft (romantic?) side, so pair your long sweaters with pom poms, your masculine coats with satin shorts and your studded biker jackets with pink (anything).

We will make it through, I promise.

Lessons in Geometry

I love downtown Athens on sunny Saturdays, strolling around the city center is exactly what I need to distress from the chaotic week and regain inspiration; visiting local shops for beads, stones, fabrics and threads for my jewelry making and enjoying the quiet in some peaceful corner. And if I get a glimpse of the Acropolis, I am happy.
