Thinking of Summer Greece


Styling Ideas for Ancient Greek Sandals

Since Ancient Greek Sandals are perfect shoes for summer, I thought I´d share my styling Ideas with you guys.
Thinking of Summer GreeceWhen I think about Greek Mythology I picture white, gold and light flowy dresses so thats exactly what I went for. I saw this beautiful Juliet Dunn dress at Harrods.com and i thought it would match the Ancient Greek Chrysso Sandals perfectly. Usually I love the cracked Gold as a colour best but for thi look i chose the shoes in the natural brown color, so it would look more relaxed since the dress is pretty sparkely. For a bag i chose a olive green Proenza Shouler bag, because you can really stuff a lot in it and i think those bags are very very universal and casual, so the bag is not overpowering the dress and i think the green matches the colour of the sandals perfectly. Also you can fit a lot of stuff in it aswell. I didnt choose to many accesoires, just a pair of metallic sunlasses small earrings a gold bracelet and this beautiful arrow ring which again reminded me to the Greek mythology and I thought it wold match the look pretty well. 

What do you think about this look? I hope you like it.

Ancient Greek Sandals

Ancient Greek Sandals


I am truly obsessed with greek mythology so it is no miracle that I am in LOVE with those shoes.
As the name probably tells you there are inspired by ancient greek shoe designs, so basically they are similar to gladiator sandals .
The sandals are handmade locally in greece , using tecniques that have existed for centuries.  Since they are inspired by ancient Greek mythology, goddesses and nymphs they share their names with famous characers from the ancient storys like Medea, Klytemnestra or Kassandra.
For their shoes , the craftsmen use chemical-free and naturally tanned leather, which ages beautifully.
I think thy are a very very beatiful alternative to conventional gladiator sandels.
The shoes that you can see in the pictures are called" Medea" , "Ikaria" and " Kassandra" and they are probably my favourite designs. All of them are in the colour "cracked gold  and i think they are absolutly adorable, especially in the metallic colours. But you can get them in the natural leather colours like brown and black but they also exist in really cool metal colours e.g rose gold , gold ,silver and platinum. Unfortunatly they are not the priciest in the world the their collection rages from 120€ to 535€. My favourites, by the way cost Medea(160€ ), Ikaria( 150 €) and Kassandra(195€). Still I think they are super pretty and woth to invest in them. What do you guys think?
