The two dresses,well one

Although  brought a lot of seperates with me like shirts and skirts and cotton tops I soon found out  that dresses will save my day.

First I'm so stressed to care about creative combinations and secondly i do some physical work *cleaning cars* so adjusting my clothes or lifting my pencil skirts is no fun.

So off to the local market I went and got me two simple printed dresses identical but in different colors and I wear them all the time plus the blue dress I thrifted.

If I feel bored or inspiration strikes I put a top over or a skirt and a belt and I'm done. Plus it's so hot I'd rather spend my day in my swimsuit. Wait maybe I could fix me an outfit around it.

 To get to know the village Sisi here is the back door from oyr place to the beach road and...

 This is the beach road dry and dusty but beautiful in a wild way....

and this is the view from my window the blue sea and lots of rocks

In the heat of the summer

It's funny how all good and bad traits of one's character come to surface when they get challenged. I'm switching from feeling confident to loose the ground under my feet 100 times a day.

I can't say the same about my outfits where I'm confident most of the times. Like this blue dress I thrifted the other day.It's hand sewn and a nice light fabric but one size bigger. So I always wear something on top to make it fit.

I leave you with a taste of summer where you can see the lights of my life enjoying themselves by the pool.

One of my new tasks besides office work is cleaning the cars when they return from the renting period. I clean the inside of the car ,my husband the outside and the kids dry the windows. We talk about team work. I soon discovered that wearing soft fitting to the body clothes is the most convinient for the job. We get a lot of wind so any other kind of skirt is out of the question and all my lovely pencil skirts are too tight.
For the days that very little cleaning is needed I can wear what I fancy but I have brought around 25 pieces with me so I do a lot of remixing.
In the photo you also see my trusted slippers havaianas that have lasted me 3 summers already and counting.

The green doors belong to our neighbours and make the perfect background for the photos that either my husband or kids are forced to take since I don't have my little studio.

I also got myself a small nikon coolpix s 3100 camera which is pretty basic but has some cool features.
And finally here is a photo of my bag I carry all the time with me. It's a leather Uterque one that served me good but shows sighns of strain and has to be replaced soon.

See what I do this summer

I know I don't look that happy but it's because I'm tired. I'm joggling a house , my kids and helping my husband who owns a car rental company in a highly touristic area. This means long hours of work in a field I'm beggining to learn and it stresses me out.

 See how serious I look? It\s because I am a perfectionist and I want to learn everything in a day or two .

Outfitwise  I hope I don't look too granny but this shirt I thrifted last week *there 's always time for shopping*is pure silk and so light it feels like breeze. The skirt is also thrifted and the shoes are almost ancient Greek.
I will try my best to post frequently and let you know how things go in beautiful Greece.

I found mine

I found mine

That's how I'm dressed all day long holidaying far from the net and the civilisation. A much needed break ! The outfit is a bit on the 20something age group but that's how I feel at the moment.
