We are in full packing mode here in Crete. Tomorrow evening we get picked up for the airport and yet another wonderful holiday is over.
I wanted to make a post about my outfit last night. A little because I finally got dressed up to go out and a little because I love this outfit and I got it so cheap!
The dress is from Primark. I bought it in June for only £14! I was so happy with it I had to have it.
I love it because you can use it as a dress with heals when going out, to a party or to dinner but it can also be used if you feel like dressing up a bit more in the everyday. Get some more everyday shoes, some black tights and a jacket and you are set to go!
The jacket it just a normal black blazer from H&M and I bought it a couple of years ago.
Even though it looks like most other blazers I love it because it fits my body.
Because I am quite petite it is SO hard to find a blazer jacket that looks good and not boxy on me. So when I finally found this I was thrilled!
I think I payed £20 for it if I remember correctly.
The shoes are from ASDA and I got them for £12 less than a month ago.
I really like them because they are really comfortable, so I can use them all nights and also put them on for work if I feel like it.
I really love shopping in London for the fact that you can get nice clothes for very cheap if you just take some time to look for it.
Even if I have a month that I am really poor and have an event, I can go out and get an outfit for it if I need to.
So there you have it – a complete outfit for less than £50!
Good evening from Agia Marina.
We are now on our last few days down here by the Mediterranean. Our time has flown by and on Saturday we fly home.
After a long day at the beach today, we got showered, dressed and went out to a very cozy Greek restaurant just down the street from us.
I think this is the first holiday we have been on where I have not felt the need to get super dressed up and go to a restaurant every night. Some nights I have even had just take away and many nights I have gone out wearing just jeans, a top and flats. Most nights I haven’t worried to much with make up or even my hair, just gone out to relax and eat.
Tonight though we spent some time getting dolled up and put on some nice dresses. We had such a good time deciding what to wear, how to do our hair and take pictures.
I have always liked to get properly dressed on holiday, in fact sometimes I have felt it is y favorite thing about going away. I have always liked to go out after dinner and I am always the last person to want to leave.
This year I am very content after dinner most nights and quite happy to go home.
I dont know if it is just that I have been tired, that I am changing or perhaps I am just getting old.
Tonight after dinner we tried to find a place with a bit of music and a few drinks, but we were unsure where to find it and looking around Agia Marina where we live there has nothing so we decided to go home.
I would have thought to be disappointed not to find anywhere, but to tell you the truth it was really nice to get home and change out of my dress.
I just hope I have not turned permanently into a really boring person!
Having said that though, it is a nice feeling to feel content by relaxing as well and not always having to go out to have a good time.
Anyways, I hope everyone has had a great day. I will update you more on our holiday tomorrow 🙂
For now it is time for this grandma to get to bed.
