Autumn Preview

stars sweater thanks to Oasap.com, Lee shorts
August has come to an end, the nights are breezier and the need for light sweaters and cardis becomes more evident. I instantly loved this one, because of its distressed character and subtle sexiness. If eggshell is not your thing, it is also available in black, white and pale blue.

You can find my sweater HERE

Nike Free Run+ 5.0 (Part II)

It hasn't been a long time since my last Nike purchase from Spartoo.Gr, a fabulous, girly, cute Nike Free Run 5.0+ pair of pink and grey running shoes. The moment I tried them on, I had no doubt that it was love from the first step. The certain shoe is aristotechnically designed to fit like a sock, following your feet's movement, because of the arch thing that is the most important part of the sole. The concept of "barefoot running" was introduced by Nike back in 2005, in order to help strengthen feet and legs with the protection and traction of a premium training shoe.

As specialists, like coaches and podiatrists, say, runners need to include barefoot running in their training routine, because the use of cushioned and supported modern running shoes has made our feet a little lazy; that is, our foot's muscles remain inactive because shoes are the ones to do the hard job. It is said that, while running barefoot you are forced to naturally improve your running gait and simultaneously strengthen your leg muscles.
Just because not everyone has the luxury of an appropriate barefoot running environment, like a beach or some soft grass surface, Nike Free Run 5.0+ is your second best choice. On the other way round, you may be simply searching for a super comfy pair of trainers to wear while doing your everyday chores up and down the town, or you may just love a sporty chic style and you are fed up with all these uncomfortable ballerina flats, that usually make our feet suffer even more that a pair of high heels. 

Well, I'm not trying to find reasons for my attachment to the certain brand, but I thought that my grey pair would be way to springy for winter, so I bought a black one, just in case. There is an endless combination of colors for you, to suit your personal style. For more information and other Nike models you can take a look in Spartoo.Gr, as their huge sale is still on. Can't wait to hear your opinions about the certain shoe!
Let the new training sessions begin!

With increasing frequency coaches and podiatrists are suggesting runners to include barefoot runs to their running schedule. The logic behind it is that the use of cushioned and supported modern running shoes, our feet are becoming lazy. We don’t use our foot’s muscles very efficiently because the shoes do it for us. They correct our errors and even when we do put our foot the wrong way or with too much intensity – they take the shot on our behalf.
Experts say that while running barefoot you are forced to naturally improve your running gait and and the same time strengthen foot and legs muscles. - See more at: http://www.runningshoesguru.com/2009/04/nike-free-50-running-shoes-review/#sthash.onHyhbYC.d

Hoodie Galore

For Her
 all products are currently sold on Spartoo.Gr
Called Hoodies or sweatshirts, these garments are dated back in the Medieval times, when they used to be worn in a longer form by monks and outdoor workers. Their rise began in the US during the 1930s, when Champion created a piece of clothing that would keep laborers warm while working in the freezing upstate New York. Hoodies took off in the 1970s, when hip-hop culture started to flourish and Rocky Balboa made his first appearance on the big screen. By the 1990s, sweatshirts became a symbol of academic spirit and many fashion houses, like Giorgio Armani and Ralph Lauren started featuring them in their runway collections. Until now, they are worn in every casual circumstance, by people of all ages, looking cool and cozy as hell.
For Him
 all products are currently sold on Spartoo.Gr 
Despite the obvious ways to wear them, either with leggings and sweatpants for a sporty look or with any kind of skinny jeans or pants, I also tend to pair my hoodied loves with tight dresses, a layering technique that has helped me to make it through any kind of cold winter night out, when my leather perfecto can do nothing to protect me from cold, only worn by itself, above a body-conscious dress. That's why I always have a black version. And a grey. And a lighter grey. And a navy blue. And now I need a red. And did I mention how sexy boys with sweatpants and hoodies are?

Palazzo

Asos top, Limited Edition necklace from Asos, Zara palazzo pants and shoes
As a deeply passionate person, I have many obsessions; some of them are eternal, others change by the season. Throughout the past year I've been in love with high-waisted maxi skirts and wide leg pants. They are stylish, flattering and not restricting at all. Plus, when worn with sky-high heels, they have the ability to make a petite woman look way taller than she really is (+100 points for that). My skin looks really tanned in the pictures, probably because of the lousy lights, but what-the-hell, my skin remains irritatingly pale only three weeks after my holidays. What to say, tanning may fade, but summer mood is still on. 

Have a great weekend sweethearts,
xoxo

Wardrobe Candy

A quick look at the new collections has convinced me that nineties are back for good; the certain decade was intensely characterized by a unique turn to simplicity, along with some twists of futuristic details. High-waisted jeans, cropped tops, giant T-shirts worn with leggings, midi skirts, they all remind me of my childhod, when I was standing in awe, gazing at my mother and older cousins, dreaming of the time when I would happily be in their shoes.

Spartoo.Gr has currently enriched its clothing lines, keeping up the pace with the new trends. The new LBD is either tighter, like this Morgan one, or it surrenders to the basic A-lines like these Manoush cuties do. Monochrome shirts and jumpers are here to match your everyday jeans, combined with a supreme biker jacket, which will definately be there for you any time of the day. Of course, I wouldn't leave sportswear out, as a nice, comfy tracksuit always poses a threat to my refinement. Not to mention that a nice hoodie will keep you warm from chilly autumn afternoons to cold winter nights, when the need for good layering techniques is more than urgent. College jackets couldn't be left out of the list, as they are part of the nineties spine, along with jean shirts and jackets that have never actually left our wardrobes.

Locked Out of Heaven (p. 2)

Sarakiniko Beach, Take 2. Waiting for the diver to come out.

If you ever happen to visit Milos, never miss to visit Aggeliki. Her extraordinary desserts, her homemade ice-cream, my sweet tooth and her sweet smile are the reason I'm still going through my fat days. I would kill for that huge devilish milk chocolate fondue once again, though.
Tsigrado Beach. Probably, the m-o-s-t beautiful beach I've ever been in my whole life. Descending there may be a pain in the ass, as you have to use ropes in order to climb down a steep rocky hill, but in the end you come across a paradise shore with romantic caves and clear Carribean-like sea that was definitely worth the torture .
My "life is good" face. No make up, no worries, no hairstyling. Sometimes, all you need is lie down on the earth, just to feel like the way you were supposed to feel; a dot in the universe.
Provatas Beach, one of the few family friendly ones. Playing with the shadows under the brightest sun.
People do not need things in order to feel happy. We need to share experiences with our beloved ones.
Big or small, just like gazing at the endless blue.
Kipos Beach, once again. Its wild beauty is not supposed to seduce tourists, but I enjoyed taking a look at the crystal clear waters all alone, embracing my antisocial ego. Just for a little while.
Tsigrado Beach, again. I hope you catch a slight glimpse of what I may refer to as paradise.
At least, a 5% of it.
Pollonia. A deeply picturesque village on the northeast tip of the island where you can enjoy a pink sunset, amazing wines and tasty food. I mean tasty, t-a-s-t-y food. Compared to the heart of the island (Adamantas) and the old capital (Plaka), Pollonia is probably the place with the most amazing restaurants to wine and dine. Keep that in mind.

And this is how I'm going to end my holiday diary, which is probably incomplete. I mean, I prefer to keep things personal, as it didn't have to do with fashion, it had to do with my deeply rooted need for some peace of mind. Still, no matter which part of the world you may come from, I'm here to put my signature to the fact that Greece is the most amazing destination for summer holidays. You may be somewhere nice at the moment enjoying the sun, or you may be staying in your burning city like I do, no matter the circumstances enjoy life with its little joys. If things are good, they are not going to be good forever. If things are bad, they are not going to be bad forever, either.

Homemade mojitos in the balcony everyone!

Fall 2013, I'm Waiting

all pictures are property of Spartoo.Gr
As you may already now, I returned from my holiday two weeks ago; two weeks that felt like eternity, to be specific. I know that we are going through the busiest period for every possible summer destination, and you may be reading me on the wet sand or not reading me at all, having mojitos and stuff next to the splash of waves (I soooo despise you), but there's nothing left for me to anticipate than the upcoming collections. No matter the heatwave, I've already ordered two sweaters and two hoodies and I would already have bought that divine Moschino pair of boots if my bank account didn't start moaning. 

Spartoo.Gr still runs the marathon of sales, which means, you can find a great variety of sandals and wedges for -60%; and that is a great tip to sustain an organized and smart wardrobe. On the other way round, you can also take a deep look to the new collections, in order to get inspired about what is going to come, or even buy your new favorites as long as the availability of sizes lasts. Personally, I loved these new Dr. Martens designs, and I am seriously thinking of getting that awesome rainbow Asics pair, for my upcoming excursions. And I need a new pair of black biker boots. And these silver Betty London brogues would look terrific as well. Oh, dear.

Enjoy your vacation!

...Therefore I Am

all products are currently sold in SheInside.com
By the time I started blogging, almost 4 years ago, I've come across many amazing people, I've been in oh-so-many great events and I've learnt how to shop based on my own needs and preferences. My style, either it's good or bad -opinions may vary-, has evolved thanks to international shopping through the internet. When you online shop you get the chance to personalize your outfits even more by adding unique pieces that are difficult to be found in the high-street. 

She Inside is my latest discovery that I wanted to share with you; it offers a sea of choices of anything you may imagine, no matter your style or mood, it gives its new customers a respectable -20% in their first order, not to forget its free international shipping. New items are added every day (how cool is that?), and they run competitions and offers on a weekly basis. The prices are already low, but don't miss the chance to shop in their sales department as well. I have already featured above some of my favorite items, waiting in my wishlist. I am just a few clicks away.

Locked Out of Heaven (p.1)

That's how it started; with some bikinis from Calzedonia, OyshoH&M and Accessorize. I've collected so many single pieces in my collection, that I have endless combinations to make -probably for the next two summer holidays,
 Firopotamos Beach, a small piece of heaven with old fishermen, boats and traditional Greek atmosphere.
 Sarakiniko Beach, a place of unearthly beauty, situated on the north shore of the island. Its impressive, volcanic white rocks make it the most photographed place in the Aegean. Moonsacpe.
 
Happy feet. Neutral, long-stay Shellac pedicure. It was the first time in my life of not having to worry about chipped fingernails and toenails. Thanks universe.
Aegean, I'll never change you for a thing. Where blue meets blue. And you never feel blue at all. 
(sorry for being stupidly poetic)
 Palaiochori Beach. We dived and swam next to breams, krabs and endless small sea creatures. Behind the rock there was another hidden beach, even more beautiful than this one.
 Chilling on the sunbed, thinking how to accidentaly miss the ship of return.
It's been almost a week since my return from my summer holiday in Milos Island, Greece. 
Every year the same old story; I dream about the time when I'll be rich enough to spend a whole summer in the greek islands, renting a small, cute, white house on a steep cliff looking at the Aegean, going around in my swimsuit all day long, having long walks by the sea, inviting my friends over, having fish grills, away from any kind of worries, fears and make up, in our open air jeep, enjoying cinematic sunsets and full moons. I am not that romantic in my everyday life, it's just that the Cycladic aura makes me feel like home. Actually, it feels more home than home. Actually, I feel so proud for my country's beauty. Actually, why did I even come back?

Either on vacation or not,
enjoy the sun, laugh your heart out and feel the magic.
xoxo,
F.

Asos Sale Heaven

everything is bought from Asos.Com
Although I adore the feeling of coming across a real bargain through sales (just like any other girl, I guess), I wouldn't say that I have the emotional strength to go through piles and piles of scattered clothes, desperately searching for my size, trying to avoid faulty zippers and missing buttons. That may not be the case in high-end stores, but in the high-street fashion shops of the Inditex group, that is the commonest thing. I hate being repetitive, but Asos.Com will always be my all time favorite fashion destination for bargains, as sales to them never come as a joke. You just need patience to scroll down for a really long time because of the endless choices you'll have, decide on the money you want to spend, or focus on colors and preferable materials as well. I didn't intend to buy anything, but who would be able to resist all these beauties, starting from -50% and on? All of them are Asos brand, except for the long, striped backless dress, which is made from a brand called Club L (and is also available in white/navy combination). And if you could only see the back of that magnificent magenta A-line dress. Big reductions, PLUS the fact that they all fit amazingly, equals a total win-win situation. Now, I seriously need to focus on my outfit posts. Stay tuned!

Oh, these small joys in life..
xoxo,
Froso
