Xristos Anesti, my friends!!!
You know you’re Greek when it takes you a few days to recover and get back to normal after Easter. And even though this Easter was low key considering the Western & Orthodox liturgical calendars synced up this year, it still took me a full week to rest up. Okay, actually I’m using that as an excuse for not being more on my game. (I’m mature enough to call myself out).
I typically prefer Autumn/Winter to Spring/Summer; the weather is good to my hair, makeup, and allergies. But I can enjoy the way that the warm weather and sunshine make me feel, the blooming plants and sense of life and rejuvenation that the season brings. It also helps that I’m obsessed with florals, and this time of year gives me the best excuse to bring out my brightest, most blooming options.
Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter are all perfect reasons to dig out the brights from storage and start adding your spring pieces to slay an outfit.
I love this dress from Closet London – the perfect timeless, flirty, classy LBD. Usually when a dress comes with a belt, I toss it. They’re typically cheap looking and I can find much better alternatives. But will you check out how cute this one is?
With the simplicity of the LBD, I wanted to keep this look simple as well using strategically placed bursts of color with the shoes, the statement necklace and the bright pink lips. So I had the same idea with the makeup for this look.
