In Greece, We Wear Blue!


In Greece, we wear Blue – As you can probably tell from my posts and Instagram features I was recently in Greece and loved every single minute!

Over a week ago I was walking along the beach, the weather wasn’t brilliant as it was rather cloudy but still warm. I spotted a blue wall which I thought would look quite nice against the backdrop of the sea….

Weirdly I don’t wear blue too much but when I do it tends to be a bright, electric blue!

The vest I’m wearing in this post is from New Look and I bought it just before jetting off to Greece, it has a delicate patterned neckline which makes a statement, I think it’s rather pretty and you don’t need to wear too much….

I’ve teamed it up with my skinny black jeans and silver ear cuff for contrast – keeping things simple and casual yet elegant….it’s a look I really like and think works well during the day and all you need to do is add a pair of strappy heels for the evening!

Greek Fashion – Οπως θα εχετε καταλαβει εδω και λιγο καιρο ειμαι στην ομορφη Ελλαδα μας.

Λατρευω την χωρα μου και με καθε ευκαιρια την επισκεπτομαι!!!

Περπατωντας στην παραλια ο καιρος ηταν ζεστος αλλα αρκετα συννεφα καλυπταν τον γαλανο ουρανο ειδα αυτο τον μπλε τοιχο και σκεφτηκα να βγαλω μια φωτογραφια καθησμενη στο μπλε με μπλε μπλουζακι και φοντο την μπλε θαλασσα!!!!!

Το μπλουζακι ειναι απο το New Look και το αγορασα πριν ερθω στην Ελλαδα ειναι απλο πολυ ανετο και εχει ενα πολυ σικατο σχεδιο στο υψος του λαιμου!!

    Glad you enjoyed your stay Layla. I would love to visit Greece one day. You look adorable. I love your cute blue top. I have to admit that I didn’t wear blue very often in the past too but nowadays it’s one of my favorite colors. Happy Friday pretty!

    I’m the same as you Layla, I don’t often wear the colour blue but when I do it’s usually a striking, electric blue! You wear the colour so well, it really suits you 🙂 Nice choice on the setting too, the blue wall works so well with the look 🙂

    Lovely outfit, it’s simple but really pretty!
    I love all different shades of blue, but at the moment I am looking for a powder blue nail polish – love this for the summer.
