accordingtoannika 's Thoughts:

Check out the rest of the photos of this outfit here!

Right now, and until October 13th, you can get this dress – or any other LOVE item – 20% off! Just enter the code ANNIKABLOG20 at the checkout.

I figured this was probably my last chance to wear an outfit as bare as this one before the cold weather arrives – and I took it. I wanted to create a look that smells of summer, sunblock and souvlaki: basically something I’d wear out to dinner while enjoying life on a Greek island.

To get the lip shade I knew I wanted – red, obviously, but with softer and shinier finish than I normally wear – I mixed two colors from Maybelline: I started out with one coat of “Coral Fever”, then one coat of “Red Revolution”, and topped it off with a touch of my amazing creme bronzer from Manasi Makeup. I usually wear it as blush, but since I wanted that sun-kissed feel, I went all in with the bronzer today – I used it on my lips, cheeks and eyelids, and mixed it with some lotion and applied it onto the collar bones and shoulders.

As you can imagine, I probably wouldn’t have worn these knitted socks with the outfit, had I actually been on a Greek island. It was funny, though: I could see that the outfit looked good without the socks, but it just didn’t look like me. Something was missing. I tried on the socks with the wedges sort of as a joke, and in an instant the whole look went from, well, a cute outfit, to something I would feel comfortable wearing. That’s what I think is so fascinating about personal style, when you find those little things that you can use to make an outfit yours. It can be the tiniest details, and they don’t even have to look good, as long as they’re right for you! This time, for me, it was a pair of knitted grey socks. Apparently.

Not only a fabulous outfit and photos, but a spot on post, as well. I totally know what you mean about an outfit looking great but not feeling quite right. And it's funny but I think that what makes for superb style is seeing someone really owning whatever it is they're wearing. Of course, it doesn't hurt if they happen to be wearing amazing pieces from the get. Anyways, gorgeous on all fronts.
