From Volos to Athens

I left Volos yesterday looking like this.
I only had time for an outfit picture inside the elevator.
How typical...Fortunately, no neighboors were watching over this time. The only weird stares I got were from the - otherwise friendly - elevator Santa. Yes, we have a gift-bearing Santa Claus decoration inside our appartment building elevator. It's opposite the snowman.

Obviously, I arrived in Athens in the same outfit. I have absolutely no changing-in-extremely-confined-spaces powers, like Mr Superman. I sat down with my sister - yes, it is my sister rocking the red coat and matching pant cuffs in that last post - and we had a casual talk. At some point I got up to go to the kitchen, and this is more or less the dialogue that followed:
  • Sister: I didn't notice earlier, but what the heck are you wearing?
  • Me: What? You mean the colours? It's a brown skirt, a cream cardigan, a green t-shirt with King-Kong wearing a red t-shirt, magenta tights and gray shoes. Is it bad?
  • Sister: Well, there are many colours...
  • Me: Well, if you didn't notice all this time I've been sitting here, maybe it's not that bad afterall.
Is it?

plum tights, brown skirt and olive tee are all shades of the natural colour palette so I think they go nicely together. Grey scarf or jacket at the top and same colour shoes at the bottom of the look are independent touches that work only when worn together, just like u did. Is this too analytical?!:)

Cute outfit. There might be a lot of colors, but certainly not too many. Your outfit is perfectly balanced.

Not at all, you can use as many colors as you like as long as they're balanced well, as in your case! Great work!

No, not at all! On the contrary, the colors are mixed in such an interesting way!
