It’s Thursday! That means, time for a new and summery outfit post. This week the lovely Corina from Cocorrina. She’s a designer from Greece with a wonderful eye for colours and shapes. I could get lost on her blog for hours and hours. She has also just started her own jewellery shop and I can’t wait to get my hands on one of her pretty necklaces! Click through to read what she has to say about her favourite piece of clothing.
I haven’t own this blue shirt for a long time – just a couple of years, and yet it has stuck with me on every occasion. I found this shirt two summers ago, in a Bershka store, just across the block in my house in Athens (hallelujah!) When i laid my eyes on it, i definitely heard the angels sing! hah no really, it was love at first sight. It was on Sale, and there were like a dozen of colors and i was like “oh cool i’m gonna buy them all”. Anyways, eventually i didn’t (got distracted by all the goodies) and got the blue one, since i was going thought the phase that i wanted my clothes to match my eyes. I’m over that now :)
So, at first the shirt was just a shirt like all the others. I would wear them with a pear of jeans or shorts. The cool thing about them, was that it made my outfit scream i’m chic but also, i’m an artist. The combination of a simple shirt – with that pop of color. Eventually i wore her (yes, it’s a she!) on an interview, that ended up with me, working in that company.
There were times that i was kinda embarrassed since i would wear it non-stop. And it’s not like it’s a pair of jeans that is basic and goes with everything, it’s a blue shirt! I mean, that’s just it. But, i found a way to make it a basic part of my outfits. Literally, now that i’m thinking of it, there is no way i can’t think of, that i haven’t wore her. In the winter, under a knitted jumper, as a cardigan in spring, as a cardigan with a dress (yes i did that too!) as a shirt with a maxi skirt, and the past couple of days, i wore it to the beach. It was just perfect. Hubby and i stayed until 8 pm and i was with my bathing suit still, when it started getting chilly. So yes, my shirt became once again a great solution to go with my bikini!
After so many times i have wore it, you can see it on the shirt, but i’m not willing to give up. She has many years in front of her with me yet to see!
