Shades of Green – Playsuit

Happy Monday Everybody! This is a continuation of my previous post. In that one you saw the makeup I wore to a wine dinner, well here is the outfit! It got this green playsuit (that looks like a dress from the front) a couple of months ago and have been really excited about wearing it. I thought the wine dinner was the perfect occasion.

I think this playsuit is great because it can easily be dressed up or down and can be worn year round. Here I just paired it with tights to help stay warm and heeled booties just to dress it up a bit. In the summer, minus the tights and add some sandals!

Here it is!

I will say I had to snap pictures the next day because when we left we were running late (not my fault) and it was too dark. The next day it was SO cold, I had a hard time keeping my jacket open and scarf not bundled around me. On top of that it was really windy! Yet, I still had a great time and thank you to my good friend Virginia for taking them for me!

P.S. I am not one to match my eye makeup (and earrings) to my outfit BUT it was all green and that is a favorite of mine – also I think the green eyeliner was subtle enough that it worked.

~ Blush Blazer ~

Good walking

Happy Friday! I love this blush blazer because it makes a nice change from the typical black. The zips also add a nice extra touch. I paired this blazer with a leather skirt, a white open back top, and some black and white polka dot pumps that really POP! For the accessorizes I wanted to keep them soft and simple and a blush envelope clutch, a chunky pearl necklace and pretty gold bangles achieved just that. I also added these cool stud earrings last minute. I am really enjoying this blush colour and think this skirt and this top would be great pieces to add to any wardrobe wanting to incorporate more blush tones.

Duffle Coat

Minnie

About two months before Christmas when it started to get cold here in Georgia I decided that I wanted to invest in a nice everyday coat but one that could also be dressed up a little. The first type of coat to come to mind was a Duffle Coat (Paddington Bear Style). They are also sometimes known as Toggle Coats. I love the Walrus teeth (toggles), the MASSIVE hood and the thick wool it is made out of. This coat really keeps you warm! I managed to snag mine while on sale so got it for a great deal! You may notice a little furry friend in some of the pictures. Her name is Minnie and my husband and I recently adopted her. She came from a puppy mill so is a bit shy but is very sweet! Since I didn’t really have many pictures of her (yet) I thought it would be nice to get her in some I was taking for this post!

See below for outfit details and more pictures of Minnie.

The necklace was a birthday gift from my husband a couple of Years ago. We were in New york and Henri Bendel was having a trunk show. I picked it out but had them switch out the chain for a slightly longer one. It is a coated pinecone and supposedly, the tree it came from produces the smallest pinecones in the world!

Stroll Around Downtown Athens

*LATE POST ALERT*

So this post is from way back before Christmas when the leaves were starting to change (as you will see from some of the pictures). A good friend of mine and myself headed downtown for lunch and also a nice wander around. She just got a new camera and so we also wanted to try it out! First shot was a mirror selfie!

With full bellies we went for a stroll. It was such a nice day – blue skies, sun, and a crisp breeze! Here are some snaps from downtown Athens.

My friend had to drop off a pair of boots so we popped in quickly and while she handed them over I snapped a quick picture. When you get in there, shoes surround you! They are everywhere. However, they always do a great job and are very honest with you.

Italian Dinner

The other night after I got off work my husband, a friend of mine and myself all headed out for an Italian dinner. It wasn’t anything fancy but just a laid back evening with good food. We headed to Depalma’s, a restaurant a few minutes down the road from us, and settled in a booth with the menus on hand.

We started with some fresh bread and olive oil and also some housemade focaccia bread with spinach and smoked gouda sauce.

Starter

This was followed by fettuccine with meat sauce for myself.

Fetaccini

Spaghetti with meat sauce and meatballs plus a side salad for my husband.

And Shrimp Charmaine for my friend Jill.

Shrimp

Shrimp Charmaine – sautéed shrimp with a spicy sun–dried tomato, spinach & jalapeño cream sauce over fettuccine.

Everything was covered with shredded parmesan cheese!

We also paired this with a bottle of red wine! Nothing fancy.

Dinner was followed by dessert (we went all out! ha). The Chocolate Torte, Zuppa Inglese, and Cannoli were all brought to the table and quickly devoured.

Dessert

Zuppa Inglese – Sponge cake soaked with rum and expresso topped with chocolate and vanilla mousses.

Dessert Torte

Torte – filled with chocolate ganache and served a la mode

Cannoli

Cannoli – Italian pastry filled with sweetened ricotta cheese and chocolate chips.

I kept the evening casual with jeans, a sweater, boots, and a hat.

Running Errands

Neverfull // Earrings

I had a bunch of errands to run the other day and wanted to be comfortable but look nice. I decided to wear my favourite jeans (seen here, here, and here), a bright pink top, and some brown leather boots. I also added a blue quilted jacket because it has been really cold here lately.

Holding bag

These boots are sooo easy to wear even with the heel and I love that they zip up the back! I love that this top can easily be dressed up or down. Pair it with a pencil skirt and some pumps and it is office appropriate. The Neverfull is a great bag for running errands and traveling because it holds so much and can just be thrown over your shoulder.

This coat is such a great everyday coat because it keeps you warm and is not too dressy. I love that the inside is bright as well – adds some character. Joules makes really nice coats. I have a longer tweedish looking one that is dressier that I wear a lot in the evening.

Joules jacket

Lastly, my crystal necklace – The chain is from the Julie Vos coin pendant (seen here and here). The length of it is great! I wrapped a crystal in gold wire and made a hoop so it can be attached to different chains. This is the final product.

The Last Resort

We went to dinner with some friends the other night and decided to head to The Last Resort. Last Resort does one of my favourite lunches (see post here) but I hadn’t been to dinner there in a while! It was great! My husband and I had great company, wine and food!

We started with a bottle of Ghost Hill Pinot Noir Blanc to have with our starters – Fried green tomatoes and crab cakes.

Sorry about the grainy picture!

This was followed by red wine with our dinner. This was the Arbis Ros. I had a steak so this paired nicely!

Black Theory Jumpsuit

OOTD # 3

In the Summer I love to wear playsuits. They are so easy (and comfortable) to just throw on and can also be dressed up or down. Zara made my two favourite ones from this summer HERE and HERE. In the autumn and winter when it is colder I still like the concept so just look for jumpsuits. I got this black Theory jumpsuit for a steal on Ebay and love it! It is great to wear out for a date night with my husband or out for drinks with girlfriends.

A Taste of India

You do not see as many Indian restaurants in Georgia as you do England, but we do have one in Athens that is really good and does a GREAT lunch Buffet. A Taste of India does a lunch buffet from 11:30-2:30 Monday through Friday (12-3 Saturday & Sunday) that is one of my husband and I’s favourite place to go! It is not a huge buffet, it has about 4 different dishes, plus rice, naan, pakora and a salad bar, but the taste of the food is top notch and you do not really need any more options.

Outside

My husband and I decided to go there for a lunch a few days ago. We were having a late lunch and so we missed the lunch crowd and were the only ones in there. Just like the countless other times we have been there it did not disappoint. During Football season they lay the tables with UGA colours – red and black. The rest of the space is decorated with large elephants and pretty framed tapestries.

Decor2 Elephants

I had rice with chicken curry, vegetable pakora (fried vegetable fritters), dal makhani (lentils), and naan bread. It was all very delicious. They change up the dishes daily so you never know what you are going to get but I have never had anything there I did not like.

Naan Bread

They also surprised us with some gulab jamun for dessert. Gulab Jamun is a milk dumpling that is soaked in rose flavoured sugar syrup. This is my husband’s favourite dessert there and again, like usual, it was great!

I love these shoes because not only are they comfortable but they also give a “pop” to an outfit! The Zara leggings, as you can see from my other posts, are some of my favorites because they are a super thick, stretchy material. Lastly, I love Truly, Madly, Deeply tees because they are the perfect length to wear with leggings.

Dinner at The National

photo 8

My mum has been over visiting from England and has been staying with me for the past few days. For her last night in Athens we decided to head on over to the National for some dinner. The National is a great restaurant in Athens that not only has great food but a great ambience.

Their bread is really good!

We started off with some stuffed Medjool dates (my husbands favourite), Boquerones (Anchovies) and Hummus! After this my mum and I shared the Plum Salad and Cod special and my husband had the Pork Chop. It was all delicious! For dessert we all shared the Chocolate Torte.

I would definitely recommend checking out the National if you are in town!

I kept my visit there casual and just wore jeans, a top, boots (these boots are so comfy – I walked all over London in them with no problem!) and a blazer. To see more check out the pictures and info below.
