As you may remember from last year, yesterday (August 15th) was Assumption Day, which is a huge deal in Greece. We celebrated by going to church in the morning and eating like hogs for the rest of the day. My mother-in-law had done Orthodox fasting (i.e., no meat/dairy products - maybe no olive oil, too? - for two weeks); I was exempt, and no one else had bothered. I celebrated personally by...wearing the exact same outfit as last year:
You can thank my husband for this picture - and for cutting off my feet
Seriously, even the jewelry is the same. The only differences are my hair, my shoes (which you can barely see, but are orange sandals), and the fact that my good-luck amulet is tucked into my bra. Stay classy, C&B!
On a side note, how pretty is my mother-in-law's garden in Sparta? I didn't have the heart to crop the picture...
Dress: Gap, remixed
Orange sandals: Nine West, remixed
PS - I actually took some pictures of all the food we ate - and used my camera's "food" function! I hope to do a post on that in the near future.
