#NEW YORK

Winter dressing. 

In my book that means beanies, turtlenecks, the occasional oversized fur and BOOTS. Make them thigh high and I’m willing to withstand below 30 Celsius for another 3 months (I’m talking maximums here). All black and a hint of pink to break the ice (literally), I’m contemplating skiing, hot cocoa with marshmallows and endless procrastinating over a million glossy glossies.

I’m officially cold. 

Wearing a pair of Sante Shoes thigh high peep toe boots, beanie Jumbo (a SAINT version here), suede leather shorts, black cotton turtleneck

Daring Purple & Orange

IMG_7653

I mean, why not?

Colorblocking my way into winter is the funnest shortcut I could think of to try and forget all those palm trees and eternal sunshine of La La Land. Mixing up colours makes up my mood in no time but basically I did need a good excuse to wear that statement coat. I know, I know it could have probably been better with black cigarette pants and a crisp white shirt (new outfit post coming up perhaps?) but running around in those Freestyle vintage Reeboks and my vibrant attire was equally satisfying. And attention grabbing. Thank god the wasps and bugs were in hibernation.

But playing dress up never hurts, right?

Cookie-ing

My cookies bring all the boys to the yard and they’re like they’re better than yours, damn right they’re better than yours, I can teach you but I have to charge.

Or not.

Check (AND TRY FOR YOURSELF) the recipe here

(or swoon over more food porn on The Eaters site).

You’ll thank me for the chocorgasm after.

These boots

IMG_7184

Can a pair of boots make you happy?

YES.

Wearing these thigh high beauties makes my endorphin levels skyrocket and I feel no shame saying this. They were after all much cheaper than the psychiatrist (to quote a famous saying). Not cheaper than a walk in the park or smelling flowers or making someone else happy but who says you can’t actually do all the aforementioned AND still be wearing them?

Double the effect. Chasing happiness in flats. ;)

Thigh high lace up boots bought on Melrose (a heeled alternative here), denim shorts, cropped white blouse COS (similar here), cow print faux fur jacket vintage (sweater edition)

Denim Days

Denim Days

Listening to MOTHXR’s Stranger on repeat, my mind being totally absent (from all the things I’ve lost I miss my mind the most), participating in a shopping detox (I haven’t yet unpacked everything, imagine that), catching up on my favourite shows and what nots and sweating my A** off on the treadmill. After all I did buy 5 new pairs of sneakers in LA. I might as well put them into good use. So I’m taking some ME time and I urge you to do the same from time to time.

It feels good.

(Plus I have a couple of surprises in store :))

The Cocoon Coat

IMG_6911

Sandals with coats (cocoon shape is so in!), ripped denim with sweaters, Arizona iced tea on a cold (but super sunny) day.

More fashion oxymorons? Well, welcome to Greece. You can swim in the sea until -almost- November and you can wear -almost- whatever. And enjoy every minute of it. It’s nice to be a little crazy at times, with fashion but mostly in life.

Good to be home. 

Wearing grey sweater H&M, ripped jeans, Sante Shoes lace up sandals, wool cocoon coat Stefanel (an awesome light blue version here), vintage sunglasses, Lulu Frost eye necklace

Winter-ish

IMG_6715

I won’t accept defeat. I will continue wearing ripped denim shorts, even it means pairing them with fur coats. As for accessories I will step out my way to compliment my looks with oversized scarfs, beanies, patterned cardigans and of course boots of any high (especially thigh), cause layering is fun and it requires extra shopping. I’m always down for that.

And hot chocolate. With marshmallows. Or anything else. Yes.

In-N-Out

IMG_9312

One love.

It’s called Animal Style and it goes well with french fries and a choco shake. It kind of sounds like overexcitement (and it is) but besides the whole melting cheese over beef patty deliciousness, In-N-Out is all about the experience. And know that I used to stroll the aisles of Ralphs late at night just for the fun of it (it was REALLY fun). Did I tell you I also spent my bday there? Well, at least the very first part. :D

I was  fortunate (and also doomed) enough to live really close by so I’ve had my share of many an all American In-N-Out burger (and I do not regret it).

Same distance, other side, there was a Pure Barre Studio. It’s also called Hell.

Lace C Through dress (similar here and here), denim shirt Levi’s, Steve Madden floral sandals, Givenchy Bambi pouch, E&E Sunglasses (a classic pair here)

I scream. For Ice Cream.

IMG_6633

I SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM.

I actually scream for many reasons ice cream being a prominent one. I guess it’s a childhood remnant of when my dad used to bite off half of my popsicle claiming to be IRS.

Imagine my distress.

From then on and with my shrinks appraisal, I do not let anyone anywhere near my melting property.

I wish I was giving ice cream away (and I very well might at some point so stay tuned), instead I’m giving you a how-to-copy-the-look with this sweater (mine is from H&M), ankle grazer skinny jeans, fringed boots Pinko (a flat version here), military hat bought in Russia, Asos bucket bag, faux fur leopard coat Pull & Bear

Lickable.

Are we in Paris yet?

IMG_6486 2

There’s nothing more effortlessly cool than a pair of trustworthy skinny jeans (ripped at the knee being a plus) paired with a simple gray t shirt and a leather jacket. You can call it Parisian Chic 101. And you can trust the French. They invented macarons.

From a casual day outing to a PFW paparazzi pic, this outfit saves the day-toujours. Invest in plain basics with a feminine fit, stick to black, gray and white, add a signature piece (you don’t have a fringed jacket, seriously ???) and you’ll be fine.

Paris awaits.

Do it like the Parisians: Fringed leather jacket, skinny jeans, Sante shoes, belt, soft clutch bag, grey t shirt Zara
