5 Ways to Wear a Denim Shirt

5 ways to wear a denim shirt|Aspects of Style

I admit that I was rather late to the denim shirt bandwagon. Probably because it took me a while to find the perfect one. Probably because I err on the chambray side rather than the “legit” denim one. Anyways…spring is coming (in some places of the earth it probably has made its appearance) and to my books spring=denim!

So to celebrate March, I’m going to show you 5 ways you can rock a denim shirt with the help of some cool collages I made in Photoshop! I hope you like them because I really enjoyed making them (and there’s more to come)! (P.S. all clothing items are from Sisley)

1) Pair it with a black (sheer) skirt

If you’re looking for a way to look your shirt look less casual, pair it with a long black skirt and killer heels! Off course it works well with any type of black bottoms: mini skirt, jeans, leather leggings etc

2) Colorblocking with colorful pants

Love this combination, because you can use any color, since denim counts as “neutral” right?

Instagram {aspects} #12 – Frozen

I have no other way to describe February, as Boston was hit by 3 storms after Juno…one each week!! We got almost 2 meters snow! Needless to say, at some point after the second snow storm, where I also shot an outfit post mid-storm I just stopped taking snow photos, because they tended to look the same!

Instead I started a theme, featuring colorful houses I like and name a “color of the day”. It is a way to look on the bright side of life (literally). Talking about bright…in the beginning of the month I finally got to visit the Museum of Fine Arts and apart from admiring ancient art and my always favorite Impressionists, I also got to see Shinique Smith’s exhibition called “Bright Matter”, which was amazing! The exhibition is now closed, but you can see some highlights on my post. Oh did I mention that I got to see the Patriots’ parade as well? Yes that did happen to. When in Rome Boston…

Kennedy’s On the Square, Cambridge

Kennedy's On the Square, Harvard Square

Being the interior design sucker I am, I immediately fell in love with Kennedy’s On the Square interiors. Indeed it “evokes an incredible feeling of nostalgia” as their website states.

The self proclaimed gastropub (yes this is a thing) is located in Harvard square, quite conveniently next to the T station! The purpose of my visit was to try out the new menu along with other Boston bloggers and I have to tell you it didn’t disappoint! The menu is filled with a variety of dishes featuring appetizers, pizza, mini dishes (like fish tacos), sandwiches, entrees and sides.

I started off with a Moscow mule and had a BBQ pulled pork sandwich as a main course, both of which were really good. Now for me though the star of the night was the creme brulee. It was absolutely fantastic! I’m bummed because the lighting wasn’t “blogger friendly” as you can tell from my photos, so I don’t have a good shot. But trust me, if you visit Kennedy’s OTS you HAVE to get the creme brulee (which means make sure you still have space in your stomach for dessert)

3 Practical Questions to ask yourself when choosing your Wedding Dress

Katia Delatola wedding dress

I belong to the kind of people who want to get the most out of (all) their clothes.  When I go shopping I always calculate (mentally) in how many ways I can wear a specific item. The more, the better! It was only natural that I could think the same when I chose my wedding dress. I know, it’s one in a lifetime experience and a wedding dress can’t be usually worn again (unless you up-cycle it) and that’s exactly why I chose this particular wedding dress: it is convertible (though I didn’t know that tiny detail when I set my eyes on it) and can be worn in 3 different ways…needless to say, I was sold!

So for the practical brides out there who share the same pet peeves with me (I’m sure there must be others too), here’s a couple of (totally) practical questions to ask yourself when choosing a wedding dress.

1) Is it within my budget? How high (or low) you set that budget is up to you. Don’t get me wrong, I love beautiful dresses, but forking out 4.000€ for a wedding dress wasn’t something that I wanted to do (despite the fact that in Greece the groom’s family pays for the dress ;) ).

The Style Digest – Reading Lately

style digest 2

Today’s link round up doesn’t have a theme, as my favorite posts come from all over the place!!

Let’s start with the make up that the models rocked at Tom Ford’s fashion show in LA on Friday! It’s easy to emulate as long as you don’t use so much blush!

I also enjoyed Sandy’s post about De Superette, a brunch spot in Ghent (a lovely Belgian city to add to your travel list)!

Let’s not forget the amount of snow we got in Boston this winter! Kate’s post sums up how to cope with it, with grace and humor!!

Catherine’s post on how to generate audience for your blog and increase interaction is far better than those generic blogging tips posts I see making rounds lately. So go ahead and read it (and then pin it too)!

And last…Japan is high on my bucket list so I really enjoyed this post about the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto! One day my friends, one day!

And how about you? What posts did you enjoy reading lately?






Photo of the Week: Brownie Cake and Salted Caramel

Brownie Cake With Salted Caramel

Now I know that this is not the most representative photo using the rule of thirds, BUT the subject of this photo was too good (read yummy) as not to share!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, here is the Brownie Cake with Salted Caramel and Peanut Topping.

I found it on Pinterest and had to make it on the spot! I can assure you it was worthy!
