First try

Hi my friends across the world! It's a special day for me today and the reason is that after 5 years of blogging I was finally able to buy myself a DSLR camera to document my outfits. I'm so proud that I worked hard to save the money for it. But somehow I also wanted to establish my love for blogging and have enough of my own style to show before I buy a new camera. I struggled with my photos for long time and I knew that my approach to blogging was more visual than verbal and lately, I felt so much like I didn't give my outfits the presentation they deserved so I put it all together. But that's all in the past now.

That's how I like my outfits. Something I made myself, something I bought retail, something I thrifted and something I was gifted.

                                                         Can you guess which is which?

Fleece and belt

Τoday was a really cold day and I felt like wearing something easy and warm. And I also continued with the belted theme. The black fleece cardigan is the same like yesterday but it's my daughter's. Yes, this time has come and we can start sharing!

Belted lookpost signature

Since I took notice of the belted look that is supposed to be a trend this winter, I think I will wear it the most often.

Make one piece stand out

Both outfits are in the spirit of taking a piece out of my big wardrobe and let it stand out, keeping the rest simple (as much as possible). In the first outfit I tried to showcase the thrifted hand sewn blouse. Maybe the cardigan is of a not so neutral color but the white pants definitely ground the outfit.

Ιn the second outfit, I wanted to make the pink necklace stand out!

Second recap

Today another recap of outfits while I'm getting ready for my daughter's name day party tomorrow. I have been experimenting with layering and different patterns for some time now but recently I find myself longing to streamline things a bit and showcase just one piece of my outift and keep the rest neutral. I did that with the second outfit . I also found out that many things I have thrifted need layering
because of false fit or another little problem. The dress on the first outfit had loose neckline so I had to cover it with the scarf.

3day recap

It's a busy week but I have so much fun. On Monday, I had so much fun with my collegues. It was a national celebration and after school we went to a small tavern and while eating and drinking we sang so many beautiful songs and listened to great music. This went on the whole day. I went to school the next day with hangover. This is what I wore.

I have been trying to revamp what I already have with a few accessories I'm collecting lately. I meant to buy a bright necklace for sometime now but never found one I really liked until today. This pink babe is mine.

                                                 I'm also guilty of buying the ring,too.

And last but not least, this is what I wore on Sunday. These are clothes I had for long but I used the white sweater  I was given to put together an outfit.

Black wrap like dress

I spent most of the day decluttering our house and streamlining my wardrobe. I also helped my daughter with streamlining hers. The only time I went out was to the drycleaner's ( I rarely go there) to pick up my winter coat. That's what I wore.

*shirt The shirt factory design by Linea Brown thrifted for 3€ ( shirts of this brand are usually100€ and up) * wrap like short dress soft cashmere ( given to me but no brand tag)  * leggings 5€ * Shoes Berska Full price 35€ * ring 1€ *necklace thrifted 1€ * bag gift from mum
