Color and layers Outfit #22# and #23#

Thanks for all your sweet comments and encouragement for my move! I  can post a few outfits  because it is still the calm before the storm period!
It got suddenly very cold in Greece.In one day we got a temperature drop up to 20 degrees in some parts of the country.
On my second outfit I outdid myself. Just count the layers...turtlrneck+dress+silk blouse+cardigan=comfort(to my surprise) and wormth.
About my first outfit I hope you get a good glimpse of the pattern of the skirt! It's unusual and very 70s!!!
That's all for now. I better go back packing!!!

On the move

For reasons not of this post  to explain I have to make a move of 5 people in 4 days out of the house we lived in for 12years.All I have to say is that we do this for the better, so no worries!!!
My posts will be infrequent and the challenge will be delayed.Wish me luck cause I don't know where to start packing!!!
On with the challenge now. What I can say for these 8 outfits is that I finally have one official pose that I sport in 6 out of the 8 outfits!
My one and only pair of pants was torn in all the wrong places so I must go on with skirts and dresses only.
My last observation is that I totally love scarves or else I wouldn't wear one every day!!!

This is the first photo for my blog ever and it was taken a year ago next to my kitchen sink!What I'm trying to say is that this is my blog's first birthday!!!
Thinking back it has been a full year and my blog was a good company and a so much needed creative outlet.
It was a lonely journey for the most part but the last couple of months I met so many beautiful bloggers that it was worth the wait!!!

I only hope to be as blessed as I'm now to keep on blogging for many years.

It's all in the styling Outfit#21#

Thanks for all the comments of yesterday! I don't feel strange anymore and the dress  stays in my closet!
On to today's outfit now because I know your time is precious! I bought this cardi on a local market in very low price because I thought of it as a stylistic challenge! You see, it's a granny's cardigan and I've seen one or two older lady's wear it ever since
Again, I liked the pattern so much and I 'm a strong beleiver that I can wear anything because it's all in the styling! It doesn't matter what you wear it's how you style it!!!
Tell me does it look like  granny or not?(I've only good feelings about the grannys all over the world,it's the style I'm talking about!)

Cure for the winter blues Outfit #19#

 I bought this piece of cloth in the summer to cover myself on the beach , it's sort of a sarong! But it has such great cheerful pattern and bright colors that I had no choice but to incorporate it in my winter wardrobe!!! I wore it at school today covered by my cardi and fond memories of the summer holidays filled my heart. I could almost smell the coconut oil!!!

Vintage love Outfit#18#

I love the vintage-y quality this outfit brings! I haven't realised it until saw the photos! The blouse and skirt are from the 70s but the shoes and flower are new. Still they convey something romantic and old!

Which one is it Outfit #17#

 Classy has never been so easy! It's all about skirts... even with wrinkles!
 Belts help but let's not repeat ourselves!

But I hope that I'm allowed to say how much I love this scarf!
I 'm half way through this challenge and I've scared myself a couple of times because I'm planning the next set of 30 items to wear  .Is it some serious disorder or just practicality?

Crazy weather... Outfit #16 #

It has been extremely hot in Greece  the last 2 weeks and it feels like late spring. Even the flowers are blooming fooled by the warm weather!
Dressed like this today was ...overdressed! Well I 'm about to reveal my new layering technique that got me lots of compliments today. I wore my cardigan under the dress (the sleeves popping out )and my scarf over the dress kept in place by my trusted belt! The rest I kept black.
I will have to run now to feed my family!!!First things first!

Stripes n' Flowers Outfit #12#

Today I simply wanted to wear stripes and I wanted to wear florals and I happened to have both.So, I threw them together and kept the rest simple!
That was a spontaneous outfit, all the rest until now I had somehow planned ahead.
There is a little something I've been meaning to ask you , do you always write what you wear ,you know the name of the brand...etc.Why you do that? And if you don't why not!I'm in two minds.

No comments? Outfit #11#

I thought that the best part of the challenge would be the remix of clothing itself.But I was wrong!It's the comments! Almost like a random act of kindness your sweet,encouraging ,smart comments give me motivation .
And what's more,this exchange of comments builds up and some form of closeness happens with some of the bloggers! And this along with my family and friends makes everyday life a lot more rich and fun!!!
How do you feel about the comments you get? Do you feel a kind of connection with the bloggers you comment more or get the more comments from?

The crash test Outfit #10#

 Today a young boy at school told me that during the weekend he met a woman that looked like me .When I asked she looked like me exactly how, he replied that she wore well...(he paused to find the right word) exotic clothes.
Exotic how?I asked again.He said that she wore colors,skirts and colored tights.This innocent conversation got me thinking that  I dress outside the conventional way thus... the exotic.
But how far away have I gone down the road  of style ? Am I turning into someone funny ? Where is the thin line between personal style and turning into a weirdo? Do you ever worry about these things or is it the lack of shopping?

My Fashion breakthrough Round up#1-8#

What I realised in this challenge until now is that
  • I've never worn so many pinks before in my life!
  • I've never used the same belt so many times!
  • I've never had my husband taken my photos before!
  • I've never been that organised before!!!
  • I only have 4 poses!

Take my time Outfit # 9

Keeping a blog has a lot to do with taking your time! 30 for 30 challenge has taught me that!
In the middle of the week I started feeling a pressure of posting one outfit a day. The thing is that each post needs time to brew as I like to say. From the selection of clothes to the take of photos, the editing and the actual writing is a lot of work and it takes time to be done.
I'm a working mother of 3 primary school children and I have that much time left. I was almost ready to quit but then I realised that we don't have a dead line and we can skip a few days if we are busy and that this challenge was about having fun with our clothes, not stress over it.
Have you faced similar problems?Do you post every day? Have you thought of quiting!

PS this is my first attempt with colored tights.What do you think?

That's unfair Outfit # 8

Isn't it happiness when you meet someone new in the neighbourhood who turns out to be a great personality? What I mean by great is honest , unpretencious and creative. On to the outfit now.  In case you are wondering, my husband told me this morning that I look like a color  samplebook and he hasn't taken that back yet!!! I ,on the other hand think that I made good use of my LBD , my summer shirt and my black cardi, not to mention the belt and my favorite necklace! Are you reading my loved one? What do you think? Will you prove him wrong for me?

The Italian job Outfit # 7

This was a totally unexpected outfit. It wasn't planned or thought over like the rest of my outfits. I simply wanted to wear black today but don't look like a widow.
To my utter disapointment my husband said I looked like a gondolla boy feeling cold! I made a serious attempt to prove him wrong and I  loaded myself  with accessories.
Before I go out the door he said I looked classy!!! Men are so unpredictable!!!
Do the men in your life approve of your stylistic choices? Do they have a good sense of style that has saved your butt occassionally?Do they notice of the things you bring back  home?

P.S Yesterday wasn't my lucky day but it was an easygoing, productive, happy day I got to spend with the people I love! Isn't that luck after all!!!

My lucky number Outfit # 6

Six is my lucky number. Six was the date I was born and I'm telling you I'm a lucky woman! I hope this will be my lucky outfit. If so, I will wear it once a week!
It consists of a fairly simple colored sweater, one of the skirts I made myself , my trusted belt and a lovely scarf.
But are you familiar with the consept of lucky clothes? My husband wears a shirt he considers special every time he wants to make a deal. He swears it 's working everytime and he has yet to be proved wrong!
Do you have clothes or accessories that bring you luck? I will put this outfit to test and report back tomorrow. Have fun!!!
