SNAPS FROM DINNER.
I know that it is late but I wanted to check in to say hi - still safe and sound. I love seaside spots for they offer the best food. I ate mussels earlier today and they were so tasty.
Apart from wearing swimwear most of the time I have been living in a white blouse and black denim cut-offs. I haven't been into sunbathing since I lived in Australia - I prefer all kinds of activities and the fun stuff and rather stay in the shade, and most importantly I like to protect my skin, though my skin still looks a bit tanned and healthier.
Admitedly, I like to look a bit tanned even though it should not be that way, you get me? Tanned skin looks good but the sun damages your skin so much and having to spend hours in the sun makes you feel tired.
I am going to stop worrying because life is good right now - just enjoying vitamin sea.
THE LAUNDRY BAG.
Balenciaga's Bazar tote is definitely eye-catching and would take you far in the street style game - the bag is cool and fashionable, yet at first I was very tempted even though there many other bags on my wish list. It is most likely the most covetable fashion statement bag at the moment even though you could get something similar for a much lower price point.
But I must admit that the bag reminds me of Phoebe Philo's work at Céline, especially her Fall 2013 collection comes to my mind - the question goes if it is a rip off even though I love Demna Gvasalia's first collection for Balenciaga and the bag has its charm.
What is your opinion? The bag actually looks timeless in black, just saying.

We hit the local beach in the morning but to be honest it is not nicest beach I have seen - a bit dirty but good for swimming. I think the pool is more enjoyable even though I am a beach girl at heart. We will travel around Crete later this week in order to find beautiful scenery and better swimming spots.
In case someone is wondering, the bag is from H&M Home - I am not sure if it is meant to be a beach bag (most likely it has been designed for laundry purposes) but it does the job damn well. I bought mine just before the trip so it should not be too late for you to get yours.

I had not shared an editorial I love for sometime but here we go - this one has been styled by my one of my favourite fashion influencers for Zoo Magazine featuring pieces from Dior and Proenza Schouler - looking chic and cool as ever.

THE VACAY SHIRT GAME.
Usually the first thing I want to wear in the heat is my good old denim cut-offs - I have got countless pairs in every colour, though they work well with the current shirt trend and some stripes put me into vacay mode.
Otherwise the sun and pool are treating me well.

There are many outstanding fall campaigns out there - just read any fashion magazine. One of my favourites is Isabel Marant's campaign which stars Edie Campbel shot by Inez van Lamsweerde.
It seems that an updated 80s look is going to be the coolest party style.
