Color blocking (Part A)!

I hope this post finds you enjoying your summer vacation somewhere and not in the city like me. My holidays are unfortunately over (I spent 10 days in Crete) and now I’m “boiling” in the city. At least I live near the sea and I also have friends who have summer houses near some lovely beaches, so I visit them whenever I get the chance.
I’ve been meaning to do a post about the Color Blocking trend for a while now. I love bold, vivid colors and especially when 2 or 3 colors are worn in the same outfit. Isn’t it strange, how the trends make us see things? I mean, if color blocking wasn’t a huge trend, many people would think that wearing green, yellow and blue together makes you look like a parrot! But then again many people may still not know what “Color blocking” is and think that combining more than 2 colors is tacky. I’m glad I’m not one of those people…

Chill loud!

Some people don’t like Sundays. Maybe it’s because it’s the last day of the weekend and we know we’ll be working the next day. But I do like Sundays, especially when the weather is warm and sunny and I get to out to eat by the sea and then chill out at a café. I stupidly forgot to take my camera with me but I managed to have a couple of photos taken with my i-phone. The only thing I didn’t like is how crowded all the cafés were and the extremely loud music. I mean, I’m by the sea, drinking my cappuccino freddo, I’d prefer some nice lounge music instead of all those mainstream beats played aloud. If I want to dance I’ll go to a club and not to a café, right?!

Mr. Cabdriver!

Today the weather was magnificent, so I set out to go to the city centre for some shopping, visit a few thrift stores etc. I took the train because it’s almost impossible to park near Syntagma square, especially on a Saturday morning. On the way I started to feel a bit lightheaded and dizzy. It got worse and as soon as I left the train station I started feeling like I was about to faint. So I thought I should get back because I was in no condition to walk or do any shopping whatsoever. I got in a cab and told the driver to take me to my destination as soon as possible because I wasn’t feeling well. He said “with a woman like you I would even go to hell”!!! I ignored his remark and said please lets go, I feel very dizzy, but he continued and suggested that we go for a coffee so I will feel better and started asking me what’s my name, what I do for living, where I live etc.
OMG, was that guy for real? There I was, almost about to faint and he was hitting on me!!!
I had no choice but to get out and grab another taxi to take me home. Fortunately the other driver was no casanova!

T-shirt: gifted
Leggings: Tally Weijl

In case you’re wondering I feel better now and I’m guessing my blood pressure dropped and/or my iron levels must be very low again, that’s why I felt so dizzy and weak. So I’ll have to start taking iron supplements all over again!

I know I’ve been bad!

The correct title would be “New in”, but I thought I’d change it a bit since I have been making some purchases lately and I don’t want to use the same title over and over again. My excuse is: I’m a shopaholic (who me? naaa!).
OK, I have a better excuse: early birthday presents…to myself!
So I finally got around to buying a new pair of sunnies. Over the past few years my sunglasses were constantly getting smashed (a total of 3 lovely pairs ruined, and not by me!), which has left me with only one pair, my Rayban aviators that you’ve seen me wearing many times. At last I decided to “cast out the evil” that’s been haunting my poor sunglasses and buy a new pair. I really hope these ones will have a better fate. Knock on wood!
Anyway, I wanted a pair of Wayfarers for a while now and so I got this pair from the “Rare prints” collection, which has a black frame with a super cute button pins print on the inside. I absolutely adore them. I will take some close up photos and post them tomorrow.

I have a crafty/DIY question: these over-the-knee socks are too tight on my legs (the elastic part). Do you think I could cut the elastic band? But then I don’t know what will hold them in place. Have you had this problem with over-the-knee socks?
