One of my favorite trips I’ve ever taken in my life was with my friend Tia, during our spring break from studying abroad in London. That’s us up there. I think we’re 20.
When the semester ended we hopped a cheap flight to Athens, and then spent a week jumping between Greek Islands and staying in the most budget hostels we could find, and it was as amazing as it sounds: we ate yogurt with honey every morning, drank ouzo every night (and drank Coronas and milkshakes during the day, apparently), and spent our days climbing long, twisting flights of white steps up mountainsides in search of a gorgeous building or a little shop that sold homemade olive oil. We also wore lots of sweatshirts, because we had heard the words “Greek Islands” and not realized that even islands can be cold when you visit them in March.
I want to go back so badly. Bucket-listed.
In the meantime, though, I’ll settle for a Santorini-inspired outfit: all oceanic blues and whites, with floaty fabrics that accommodate my 25-weeks-along shape, earrings inspired by the sea, and (of course) just a little bit of animal print. You know, as a nod to those…Greek zebras.
On Me: Blouse via Nordstrom Rack (part of my wardrobe for the Snuggle shoot); Ann Taylor skirt; sandals ℅ Crocs; Foley & Corinna purse (similar); Hat Attack fedora; bracelet and earrings ℅ Samantha Wills; Yetti sunglasses ℅ Sunday Somewhere.
