Powder of Periwinke
Happy Friday! It's my first February in Corfu and I was always thinking that Spring normally starts in March. Could I ever imagine how wrong I was? No way, there is absolutely perfect weather in Corfu! It looks like the spring stops here for a bit before he goes to other places in the world.
Well I feel very inspired by the place where live. We almost always use the chance for a quick coffee in Kerkyra and a walk in the city and on its seaside to watch the sunset. It's one of the most romantic cities on the planet and I want to stay here forever. Anyway nobody rush us so we can enjoy every corner of this magic town.
Today I'm bringing you to the little square in the centre of Corfu Town exactly next to the Banknote Museum of the Ionian Bank and the Church of Saint Spiridon, the patron of our island. I need to say that it's a very calm and beautiful place with a very nice atmosphere. You always can listen here the birds singing and sometimes even the church bells ringing.
I was wearing classy and chic look in vernal and fresh color which is called Powder of Periwinkle. Periwinkle is a color of the blue and violet family. Its name is derived from the lesser periwinkle or myrtle herb (Vinca minor) which bears flowers of the same color.
My new Braid Knit Sweater and Crossbody Bag from Zaful, were harmonized with the little colorful houses in the background, so that they were looking gentle and delicate. I think this color is one of the best options for spring wardrobe.
Speaking about shoes, there is nothing better than sneakers or ankle boots for this period in the island. For the first time since my 10 years, I was wearing Patent Leather Booties. I've got this pair from Gamiss just a few days ago and it's already on my top of best ankle boots. Even it's black, it not looks boring at all: it has an amazing shiny effect, comfortable heel and very cool design in general.
Patent leather shoes are now available in a wide variety of colors and styles. As for me I need a white one in my wardrobe with black block heel! Never say you don't like patent leather, cause everybody else do! ;)
If you've noticed the little bracelet on my hand you need to know that it's my favorite bracelet of the year from Kahlim Choi. I never was a big fan of jewelry and the only pieces I'm wearing are earrings and my wedding ring with a little cross from brilliants. Wearing earrings was for me always pretty simple. Considering bracelets, they always have been too big for my hand or have had a bad metal material which was causing allergies on my skin. So all my life I was weaving little bracelets from floss thread by myself. I could make them in perfect size for me, in any color and I didn't make them out in the bathroom or in the sea.
After moving to Greece I've found Macrame maskot bracelets in the Greek Church and I am actually always wearing the beige one on my left hand (you can see in every picture in my blog). In collaboration with Kahlim Choi I've finally got my favorite style of bracelet - simple and elegant handmade piece with personalized initial on the 925 sterling silver tag. After 10 years of searching, I've found the brand with the most wonderful bracelets for me - minimal, with very good quality, available in all colors you can only imagine and even with TB (Tamara Bellis) initials on the front side.
My bracelet from Kahlim Choi has an amazing "Powder of Periwinkle" color and is created from durable, violet nylon cord. Every bracelet in the store has its own beautiful name as "Midnight Jazz" or "Wife's Favorite". The important detail is that with the custom made initials on the tag - the bracelet gets its own story. I'm thinking about to get a few more colors for the summer. It's the perfect option for the Greek Weather for which you need jewelry to be healthy for the skin, light but also nice looking.
Spring is about many new colors which gonna come back in our life with new fresh breath. So let's be creative and open minded to all new shades of nature and fashion! ;)
