Up in the Mountains

Cyprus is undoubtedly most known for its clear beaches, sea-related activities, and shoreside hotels and restaurants. It's no coincidence our country is mostly related to Summer vacations. However, for our last summer resort this year, we chose a beautiful mountainous village here: Omodos. Our quick trip there lasted 2 days and during that brief time we had the chance to go out, walk the stone streets, browse some local stores, and eat delicious traditional food from a restaurant there.

Summer Touches of Colour

With the last days of Summer approaching, many of us are preparing ourselves (both, physically and mentally) to get back to a routine, go back to school, university, or work. Nevertheless, we still get to have the little things during Summer which we enjoy the most; like afternoon walks with friends! The other day, my friends and I had a saunter down a shopping street in our city. Even though the sun was exhausting, we got to shop, eat, and relax for a while.

In the photos you can see my outfit of that day. I love clothes with light colors, especially white. So, I decided to wear an outfit with its basic color being white. As you can see, my t-shirt stands out more than the rest of the outfit, with its colorful touches of watercolor-like splashes.

The t-shirt - like the rest of my outfit, besides the shoes - is from H&M. A very nice idea, is to make a similar t-shirt yourself. All you need is a plain white t-shirt, some brushes, and paint for clothes.

In Red Mood

Summer fashion is usually characterized by bright, vivid colours and a lot of patterns. Who doesn't love wearing striking outfits every now and then? I certainly do! And today, I will share with you one more of my summer outfits - this time with a vibrant, prominent color. As you can see, I'm wearing a red-and-white, striped t-shirt (reminiscent of Wally/Waldo, the cartoon!) by H&M, white shorts, and my favourite, white, canvas shoes from H&M. I completed the look with a white, straw, fedora hat and some warm-coloured highlights on my hair - temporarily done with hair chalks.

It's Skirt Day

And before you know it, August has arrived! The last month of Summer. The point when we all realise how little of Summer we have left and rush to make plans, challenging ourselves in how many things we can fit to do in August alone. Of course, the exhausting, hot weather continues here as always, leaving us with a few options. Sometimes it's just unbearably hot! But the weather won't stop us from writing a new post for our blog! Speaking of which, for today's post, my sister wanted to share with you one of her summer outfits. Combining navy blue colors and stripes, she wore this outfit during one of our walks in Athens last month. She also had a hat and sunglasses with her, both more than a fashion piece since these days they are extremely important for your health. In order to make this quite simple outfit more quirky, she wore bright red espadrilles. You can see the whole outfit in the photos below.

A Summer Walk OOTD

The summer days are passing quickly and I'm trying to enjoy as much as I can my last days in Greece, until the next year of studies in October begins. Two days ago, I went with my friends close to Marousi area for a walk and shopping and here are some photos from what I wore. My blue floral T-shirt, green shorts, and espadrilles are all from Zara whilst my polka-dots bag is from H&M's Spring Collection. Shorts and espadrilles are really a great way to deal with the hot weather, especially for days you are going to spend outside in the sun. And for this season, I love floral patterns and prints on pretty much everything! I think you can tell. It's perfect for spring and summer. Groundbreaking (get the reference?). Anyway, I got only a few days more here and then I return back to Cyprus, so expect my next post to be from there. :)

OOTD: Summer weather

Knitted Top:Pull&Bear
Ring:Energy Collection

The weather is getting hotter and hotter here and we desperately seek for excuses to go out to the beach. While it's impossible to stay inside, going out is just as bad with this sun but that doesn't stop us from enjoying some fresh air and a nice bath at the beach! This is from one of those days. With a summery look and my favourite backbag, I went for a walk by the shade of the trees to escape the bright sun.

Stoa 33

Finally, I finished my exams last week and now I am ready to enjoy my summer! Yesterday, I went to Marousi: a nice area in the center of Athens for a walk and, of course, some shopping. At Ermou Street there, there are many stores and some cafes, bars, and restaurants.

Today, I'm going to share with you photos from Stoa 33, which is the cafe-bar & reasurant that I spent my time at. It is a small place with a nice outdoor yard. It beautifully combines old and vintage with new and modern. Stoa 33 played alternative dreamy music and the decor was different than most other places. 

The staff was helpful and cheerful. Also the menu included a wide variety of things to try: coffees, drinks, snacks, food; and all these in low prices! Something that helped us decide to go there was that coctails have lower price from 5:30pm to 8:30pm. Take a look at our photos, and if you ever find yourself in Athens, I definitely suggest that you go to Maroussi for shopping and then relaxing at Stoa 33.
