Statement Vest & Starry Jeans

statement-vest-fashion-blog

Statement Vest & Starry Jeans – OK, so these pictures were actually taken a couple of months ago when I was in beautiful Greece (how I miss it) and I’ve only just managed to find them in the thousands of photos that are collecting on my laptop!

For me, fashion is all about having fun but at the same time we have to be comfortable and happy in what we wear – this way things will work for us instead ofΒ just looking good.

One of the thing that I really love about shopping abroad is that you can really find unique pieces that won’t be everywhere and in Greece it’s still common to have boutiques in every town centre as opposed to the big high-street stores.

I went to a boutique that I go to every time I visit the country and spotted this gorgeous statement vest which is fitted on the top part but becomes floaty over the tummy area – great if you’re feeling bloatedΒ (hey carbs and cake!) but it also keeps you cool in the warmer weather.

Opposite the boutique I went into a store called Celestino which I hadn’t visited in years – I felt like their clothes were extremely overpriced but I was surprised to see that their prices had completely changed this time round and I managed to grab these jeans for just 9 euro!

Yes – 9 euro! πŸ™‚

Teaming these together wasn’t intentional – I just threw them on to see what they looked like and I quite liked the way the colours and patterns worked together- chic, comfortable and relatively simple!

Perfect with flat sandals during the day and a pair of heels, hoop earrings and bangles for the evening – now….where did that sun go!?

    I love it when I try on different articles of clothing just for fun, and they end up working well together! Such an unexpected surprise. My go to pieces would be dark wash jeans, a black tee, and a nice cardigan.

    Jeans for 9 euros? That’s incredible! I also love visiting boutiques when travelling/abroad, it can be so much fun to see what’s in fashion in that area at that time, as well as a great way of tracking down bargains! Your hair looks super beautiful by the way πŸ™‚

    I’m so with you, one of my favourite things about travelling is that I get to shop in all of the different countries! They always have unique stores and even if they have the same stores, it seems they always have different stock so you can’t go wrong πŸ™‚

    Very very pretty vest , it looks really cute, i also love shopping for unique pieces whenever i travel ,sometimes i start shopping on the plane before i even land but perfumes mostly…lol. Lovely pictures and i can’t stop staring at your hair, would be nice if you could do a tutorial on how you style them to get these lovely bouncy wavy curls. Thanks and have a fab Sunday.
