I'm so lucky to be travelling to Santorini today and can't wait to showcase my summer vacation ensembles. I have put 'too much' thought into packing for this trip and yes, I have a laundry rolling rack for such occasions! I consider myself a master at packing and thoughtful when choosing the right apparel and accessories and these things take time. The pale scenery in Santorini brings out the desire for white apparel and lighter shades. For day I'll wear t-shirt dresses in white and mint green, and a loose fitting peach dress with beige embroidery and tassels. My evening looks include full A-line skirts with cropped bodices and tanks, fluted skirts with crop tops and one Grecian strapless dress (my favorite). The Santorini forecast is 'hot' and sunny, but I'm gonna pack silk pants and a light sweater anyways (ya never know).
My straw knapsack and hat are a must (Shopbop.com). A squishy straw beach bag saves space in your suitcase. I like small bags and will pack my mini Dolce & Gabbana Embellished handbag inside my Louis Vuitton tote (you need a larger bag for the plane). Packing small handbags inside larger ones saves a lot of room. Of course, one clutch is necessary for dinner. Pictured here: Phillip Lim Gorge Pouch - a neutral, goes with everything clutch.
Santorini's landscape is not high-heel friendly, so I'm packing flats, platforms and a pair of wedge booties (for pictures - I don't plan to walk around in them). Gladiator sandals seem fitting for Greece and just so happen to be on trend this season. Shoes pictured here: Tibi Mina Leather Slides, Burberry Prorsum Wedge Booties, Tibi Camilo Sandals, Tibi Jack Slides, Rag & Bone Kent Sneakers, Miu Miu Embellished Sneakers and Salvatore Ferragamo Jellies (for the beach). I love the sneakers and full skirts trend and my fringe Jack Slides are a great statement shoe to wear with an otherwise plain t-shirt dress.
My swimsuits and sarongs are Agua Bendita. The yellow crochet sarong pictured here is handmade (thanks mom). Coverups are a necessity for walking to and from the pool - pictured here Muche Muchette cream crochet coverup and a colorful Camilla Embellished coverup.
So there ya have it! Pale colors, white is a must and flat neutral-toned shoes. Santorini is a great location for photos, so pack thoughtfully and don your best vacation looks. I will post my 'vacation in Santorini' looks over the next few weeks..
