I can hardly describe how gorgeous Greece has been so far – it’s so incredible to wander the little streets and alleyways and pass beautiful homes like this one.
My new cobalt leather tee seems to fit so well with the palette here, whitewashed buildings with ocean blue details, whilst shielding me from the sea breeze when the sun says goodnight. There are literally sales everywhere on the web right now and I believe in a 2 pronged sale attack: on the one hand the sales are the perfect time to pick up cheap, on trend pieces which may last a season or two (case in point – the sandals) but, on the other hand, if you’re considering dropping some moolah then I stick to the classics, the leathers and silks that will last for years. And yes, for me, cobalt leather is a classic.
liv leather tee – c/o Baukjen (ON SALE!)
short – Zara (ON SALE! & last seen here)
sandal – River Island (ON SALE!)
glasses – Mango, necklace – Stella & Dot
watch – Michael Kors, bracelets – various
bag – Becksondergaard
So basically, last night whilst lounging on the deck in the last of the sun waiting for our ride into town, I sidled into the shade, sighing slightly and saying to the husband that perhaps double layers of leather weren’t the most appropriate choice for a Greek summer and suggesting that I might lose half a stone in ladylike perspiration by the end of the evening. He laughed heartily – I presumed at my witty musings on fashion choices. “Ha” he exclaims, “as if you would lose any weight!”. (He refers to the half tonne of icecream I have eaten since arrival). Gotta love men.
