FALL 2K16 SHOE TRENDS♡


Oh my god you guys, it's been so flippin long! And the biggest joke here is that I'm not even properly back. I'm technically still on vacay, but I came home for a couple of days, so I thought I would make a post for you. I know, I know, I've been lazy, but I didn't even have internet connection at my beach house. Anyway, I'll be back next week for another one ;)
Today I decided that it's time to leave summer behind. I know that in the US school has already started and August only has like 10 days left. Sadly, we need to come to terms with the fact that summer is coming to an end. But, on the other hand, we can start getting excited about fall. And what's one of the best things about fall? Shoes! Personally, I can't even think about wearing anything other than sandals and flip flops at the moment-even though Kendall is going at it with the OTK boots.
We can finally jump on the bandwagon! Let's see the biggest shoe trends for this fall.

Velvet
Pretty much velvet everything, from sneakers, to sandals, to boots. This soft fabric is in the spotlight this season. It's chic and certainly eye-catching. I love it, but I think that it's a rather uncomfortable material when it comes to shoes. It gets dirty so easily and it's hard to clean it and-god forbid-if it gets wet. As someone who lives in their shoes, I think that velvet shoes sound too high-maintenance.

Decor
On your heels! This is a fun one. What a lovely and genuine way to spice up a basic outfit! So feminine and fashionable. And even if you prefer well, less loud shoes, I think that those black booties with the embellished heel are simply to-die-for! Very fun and unique-just don't overdo it ;)

Biker Boots
Yaaaas! Finally! Last season they were in the "out" list. So, as an avid booties lover, I couldn't be more excited! I think that biker boots go with pretty much everything and they can give a more grungy vibe to any look. I wear them with jeans, dresses, skirts... There are no limits♥

Pearls
How to make a boring shoe interesting? Embellish it! And with not just anything. Pearls are chic and very ladylike. A statement, yet a subtle one. Perfect for the girls who like to keep it classy.

Over the knee
You probably saw that coming! This trend is so not over. In fact, you can now choose from so many different styles. There is something out there for everyone. I think they are so stylish if worn correctly but, being a former volleyball player...aka muscled legs, I find it quite hard to wear any pair of high boots :/ Oh well!

So, what do you guys think? Which of these trends is your favorite for this fall to come? Let me know in the comments below♥

CHIC CROP TOPS♡

Hello my darlings! How are you all? When this post is going up, I will be sunbathing in a beautiful Greek island. Don't hate me for it, I earned it XD I worked hard and now mama needs some rest and fun♥
Anyways, one of my essentials for a summer escape definitely has to be the famous crop top. It has been a cult favorite for so long now and I can totally understand why. But, it's literally everywhere. Everyone and their mother has one and sometimes, they style it in such a wrong way. Don't get me wrong, I think that everyone should be comfortable in their skin, no matter what is their size. But, unless you're Kendall or Gigi or simply have extremely toned abs, it is admittedly hard to look chic with your entire tummy exposed.
That is why I think that high waisted skirts are the perfect pair for a crop top and that, generally, they make the ideal summer combo. It's stylish, trendy and much more feminine and chic than Daisy Dukes. Plus, they're comfy and great for a hot day, especially if you're not a fan of sucking your stomach in all day long (I have some sort of  abs and I still do it all the time :/).
The first look (header) is very girly and I love how it has the prints and the colors and it can still look toned down because of the pastels. Very fresh and modern and you could totally rock it for a date with your s.o. especially if you're still pale. Because these heels are going to make your legs look loooong!
The second one is so fun and playful that I just can't! Off-shoulder top, Marc Jacobs dreamy skirt and...can we just talk about the sneaks? Ummm, need♥ It's more of a sporty yet feminine take on the skirt trend and I'm obsessed.
The third one gives me serious tropical-and D&G feels! The skirt and the sunnies are to die for and I really love how the bag is so trendy and yet such a staple!
The last one is so bohemian and relaxed that I can so easily picture myself wearing it for so many different occasions this summer. I like how it's simple but interesting and definitely not boring at the same time!
So what do you guys think about the looks I put together? Which one is your favorite? How do you style your favorite crop tops? Let me know in the comments below

SUMMER WISH LIST♡

Good morning my loves! How are you all this beautiful sunny day? I'm back home for a couple of days and it's boiling hot here. But, thankfully, I will be going back to the beach and there will also be some more travelling involved ^_^
Since I tend to travel quite a lot, especially during the summer, I know that packing can be tricky. This is why I teamed up with Spring to share with you my essentials for the beach. You guys should totally check out their website www.shopspring.com. They have such a wide selection of pretty much everything you need at every price point. 
My first essential has to be a large tote. I think a tote is the perfect style because you can fit so many things in it and you could even carry it on your shoulder. It's chic and practical and you don't have to worry about it getting all dirty from the sand and the salty water.
Then, you're going to need your beauty fix! Sunscreen, makeup, self-tanners and, of course, a cute little bag to fit everything in. Go for waterproof formulas with high SPF. I, surprisingly enough, don't wear makeup at the beach, but everyone is different ;)
And let's not forget about fun! I personally love a good book under the cooling shadow of the umbrella. But, I always bring my camera with me to capture all the amazing moments and my headphones(so I won't bother everyone else who is trying to chill!). When I'm with friends, we never forget some board game and, very important, our beach towels so we won't have to sit on the sand!
Last, but definitely not least, are the obvious. Bathing suits, cover-ups, hats and sunnies! There are SO many different styles to chose from that I just can't. I could buy a different pair of sunglasses for every single day of summer-yes I have an addiction XD

So what do you guys think about my picks? What are your summer essentials? Let me know in the comments below♥

KENDALL & KYLIE BAGS

Hello my dears! How is July treating you so far? I'm having a great time relaxing and making the most out of the beautiful blue sea here in Greece. There are many things one can say about our country but, damn, our beaches are hard to beat. With that being said, let's fast forward a little and take a look at Kendall and Kylie's bag collection for this fall.
If I had to use only one word, I would say...unimpressed. Don't get me wrong. I sure like those bags and I would totally wear them if someone gave them to me. BUT, they are so unoriginal that I just can't. I really do love both Kendall and Kylie's style, since it's usually pretty compatible with my own preferences-and I did really enjoy their swimsuit collab with Topshop♥. Thus, I expected something riskier, trendier.
I just think that there is really nothing special to this collection, from the colors to the designs, nothing that really wows me. Nothing, to be completely honest, that I would even consider spending 200$ on, being on a budget and all. 
Needless to say that some of the styles really ring designer knock-offs that you would easily find at Zara. As for the Bambi and Norman furry charms...we've all seen Kylie holding the original Fendi style multiple times(plus they remind me of the rats from "The Nutcracker"). Just something that wouldn't get attention from W magazine if it weren't for the Kardashian-Jenner name.
Like I said, I love the girls, and I love their style. I just don't think that this collection is worth the fuss.  If I wanted to spend a lot of money on a basic bag, I would go for the classics, that become vintage through the years, instead of last-season. I guess I've just never been the type of fangirl who buys something just because someone famous came up with it. It feels like the lip kits all over again(the basic colors not the uber cool ones XD).
Anyway, I just thought I would share my thoughts with you and see where you guys stand. I am not trying to be negative or anything and I am sure that there will be a lot of people enjoying these bags. What do you think? let me know in the comments below♥

STYLE FILE: SUMMER BLACK♡

It's been so long my darlings! I'm so sorry I wasn't active but I had finals and tons of studying to do. From now on though, I'm all free and ready to bounce back and rise higher! I'm so excited for summer, yet I'm not quite ready. Meaning I am still clinging to my jeans and my black clothing. But, if you've followed any fashion blogger ever, you probably know that black is pretty acceptable for summer. 
I have the blessing to be born in a very warm country and we always tend to refrain from black during summer. It's all about the bright colors and the florals, owning up to the oh-so-cliche  bohemian mandatory vibes. It's no secret that monochromes are able to make an equally big statement while keeping you chic and stylish. 
If you are not a fan of neons, there are so many options, but for most people black is a no-no. Personally, I believe that black is perfect for summer nights (and summer days if you are brave enough to face the heat). It's sexy and flattering and obviously chic and I think that it looks incredible with a tan. 
So, does that mean that the plain old boring black(just kidding black is the best to me) is the key to making a statement this summer? Would you try it?
