Hi my friends across the world! It's a special day for me today and the reason is that after 5 years of blogging I was finally able to buy myself a DSLR camera to document my outfits. I'm so proud that I worked hard to save the money for it. But somehow I also wanted to establish my love for blogging and have enough of my own style to show before I buy a new camera. I struggled with my photos for long time and I knew that my approach to blogging was more visual than verbal and lately, I felt so much like I didn't give my outfits the presentation they deserved so I put it all together. But that's all in the past now.
That's how I like my outfits. Something I made myself, something I bought retail, something I thrifted and something I was gifted.
*Sawl and ring crocheted by me * shirt Stradivarious *leggings( thrifted)* bag a gift from mum * earrings and necklace also from Stradivarious (zara group)*
Have a great week!
This week I participate on Visible Monday. Come and join this great community!

Both outfits are in the spirit of taking a piece out of my big wardrobe and let it stand out, keeping the rest simple (as much as possible). In the first outfit I tried to showcase the thrifted hand sewn blouse. Maybe the cardigan is of a not so neutral color but the white pants definitely ground the outfit.

Ιn the second outfit, I wanted to make the pink necklace stand out!

Today another recap of outfits while I'm getting ready for my daughter's name day party tomorrow. I have been experimenting with layering and different patterns for some time now but recently I find myself longing to streamline things a bit and showcase just one piece of my outift and keep the rest neutral. I did that with the second outfit . I also found out that many things I have thrifted need layering
because of false fit or another little problem. The dress on the first outfit had loose neckline so I had to cover it with the scarf.

It's a busy week but I have so much fun. On Monday, I had so much fun with my collegues. It was a national celebration and after school we went to a small tavern and while eating and drinking we sang so many beautiful songs and listened to great music. This went on the whole day. I went to school the next day with hangover. This is what I wore.
I have been trying to revamp what I already have with a few accessories I'm collecting lately. I meant to buy a bright necklace for sometime now but never found one I really liked until today. This pink babe is mine.
And last but not least, this is what I wore on Sunday. These are clothes I had for long but I used the white sweater I was given to put together an outfit.

I spent most of the day decluttering our house and streamlining my wardrobe. I also helped my daughter with streamlining hers. The only time I went out was to the drycleaner's ( I rarely go there) to pick up my winter coat. That's what I wore.
