How to wear black leggings

Black leggings can be totally non-boring if you combine them with a pastel skater dress. Usually it is advised not to wear pastels with black, but this outfit of three pastel colors would have been too sweet, have I not added black leggings to it. One of the fashion trends of Spring-Summer 2014 is pastel colors, which you shouldn’t be afraid to wear several at once! Another great trend of the season – chunky sandals – is just perfect for creating outfits with leggings.

How to wear white leggings

If you have white leggings, jeggings or skinny pants you can really style them up with a printed neoprene mini-dress (one of the must-haves of the season). From looking at designer collections of Spring-Summer 2014, it looks as leggings are not only for casual wearing anymore. Here is one leggings myth revealed; if you have been lead to believe that leggings cannot be styled up, this season offers really dressed up ways to wear leggings and skinny pants. In this outfit leggings are combined with heeled sandals (a big no-no of the past) and a trendy mini-bag.

What to wear with sweat-pants leggings

Looks like evolution of leggings has brought to us some new types, and elegant leggings in a sweat pants look is one of them. Remember the rule that leggings are not pants? Well, if your new pair is similar to these ones, feel free to wear your leggings as pants (another myth revealed!) Make sure to really style them up, since mixing sporty and classy is another fashion trend that is totally copy-worthy. Wearing your sweat pants style leggings with heels, slogan tee and classy fitted blazer is one of the most creative, totally non-boring ways to wear leggings this Spring-Summer 2014 season.

How to wear nude leggings

Not all leggings can be worn as pants though. You are safe to wear them as pants if they look as pants (the fabric is thick, there are some finishes such as pockets). When in doubt, wear your leggings with a skirt or a dress. Wearing skirts or dresses over pants is one of the hottest fashion trends 2014.  You can easily create a retro look if you wear your leggings with a mini dress like this. 1960s fashion has been an inspiration for many designers this season. Add some cat eye sunglasses and chunky sandals for a complete look a la 1960s.

How to wear printed leggings

A pair of printed leggings is quite tricky to style. If you decide to have a pair of printed leggings, the best way to wear them is with a long button-down shirt – another trend of Spring-Summer 2014 season. Oxfords, a trendy bag and glasses – that’s all you need to complete the look and to make your printed leggings the main accent of your outfit.

Greece On My Mind

When I'm in love I can be crazy. And I'm really crazy about Greeka!

Slopelos Island
I really wanted to be here. Just wander.... getting lost in her beauty. One day, Inshaallah if Allah will, I will leaves behind my footprint here with some memories.
All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them

Syros Island
The place I love is a million miles away, It's too far for the eye to see but in my mind eyes I can visualize it clearly as picture!

Plaka... Athens by night
Always in the back of my mind.

Coffee in Monemvasia
 I don't mind living alone here. For all its beauty my days wont be empty nor lonely.

Greek style ! Aegean Islands
As the song says, who can be lonely when everywhere I look, I can see you there!

Kalimera !!! Breakfast in Santorini??

How hard it is to escape from places. However carefully one goes they hold you — you leave little bits of yourself fluttering on the fences — like rags and shreds of your very life.

The best time in Santorini Island
 I felt like I had been looking for this place ... my whole life.

Colors & life in Santorini Island

Wild and distant places speak to many who find in them opportunities to engage in the spiritual practices of wonder and gratitude.

When the uniqueness of a place sings to us like a melody, then we will know, at last, what it means to be at home.

The most beautiful balcony in Santorini
I wanted to come here when my heart is lonely.

Amazing mykonos !!!
There are no shortcut to any place worth going.

Summer in Greece

Maybe you had to leave in order to miss a place; maybe you had to travel to figure out how beloved your starting point was.

Love makes you see a place differently, just as you hold differently an object that belongs to someone you love. If you know one landscape well, you will look at all other landscapes differently. And if you learn to love one place, sometimes you can also learn to love another.

The truth is, until you know any different, the island is enough. Actually, I know different. And it's still enough.

When you get lost in a really strange place, nothing is more comforting than found your friend whom you trust and can show the way.

Ikaria Island
Some folks call me a runaway. A failure in the race. But I knows where my ticket takes me. I will find my place in the sun.

The best view to start a great weekend !!
Santorini Island
It is a pity indeed to travel and not get this essential sense of landscape values. You do not need a sixth sense for it. It is there if you just close your eyes and breathe softly through your nose; you will hear the whispered message, for all landscapes ask the same question in the same whisper. 'I am watching you -- are you watching yourself in me?' Most travelers hurry too much...the great thing is to try and travel with the eyes of the spirit wide open, and not to much factual information. To tune in, without reverence, idly -- but with real inward attention. It is to be had for the can extract the essence of a place once you know how. If you just get as still as a needle, you'll be there.


Plaka ~ Athens
Ermoupolis Syros
The best time in Mykonos
 I travel, always arriving in the same place. Do you understand me?

Walking in the streets of Corfu
Welcome to Paradise
Perhaps I was just looking for love in the wrong places. In all the safe places. What if love was not safe at all?

"So, you see, my heart is held forever by this place," I said. "I cannot leave."
