Lefkada 2: What to Wear & What Beaches to visit in Lefkada

Shorts Levi's, slides H&M, top unknown (similar Shein), bag Proenza Schouler, hat unknown
Time to share with you another outfit this week. It’s my second outfit from Lefkada (the rest were bathing suits only heheeh). I’ve fallen so far behind on posting outfits from my August, yes August trip to Greece. Actually, by the time we reached Lefkada it was already September. The second outfit is another simple shorts and a shirt combo. As it was already September it wasn’t as starching hot as sit it in the summer months. I could opt to wear long sleeves but the rest of the outfit had to stay light. Straw hat to shield from the sun is always not only useful but also a great accent to any outfit. As you know I really love colour especially in summer months, I chose one of my favourite bags, this Proenza Schouler classic.
Last time I told you a bit about Lefkada island and town, but I didn’t mention any beaches. There are so many to explore but I will share with you my top 3: 1.Porto K…

Ladylike in Midi Dress in Lefkada, Greece

Dress H&M, sandals Forever 21, scarf (headwrap) Winners, handbag Value Village
From one island and east coast, we hopped over (actually drove our camper) to the west end of Greece and to another island, Lefkada. Well, Lefkada is not really an island any more as it is now connected with a floating bridge and causeway. Like most of Greeke islands, Lefkada also has a town which carries the same name as island, but also has several small villages throughout. The town of Lefkada is a small but beautiful town. Quite different from Mykonos. In fact, I personally found it reminded me a lot of New Orleans, USA. Weird I know, but when I read up on history of Lefkada, I learned that French ruled this little island as well for a brief period of time so influence of French architecture is definitely noticeable. Those of you who’ve been to New Orleans would think the same.
For the first evening out on the town, I wore this little H&M number I purchased last year. I love the print because …

What to Wear in Mykonos

Skirt Forever 21, top unknown, bag vintage (Value Village), sandals YSL


After big hectic Athens, our next stop on this road trip was Mykonos. Yes, with our camper in tow, we took a ferry and headed to this charming island. Mykonos is definitely one of the most beautiful places I have travelled to. It holds dear to me for its beauty and magical ambiance, but we also have a friend who lives there, and I feel like every time, we get more of a local experience rather then just touristy one. Mykonos is growing and definitely getting more expensive. Numbers of tourists flocking to this gem of an island is growing every year. Unlike Santorini which you mostly will enjoy only if you stay in the extremely expensive villas, Mykonos still welcomes everyone. You don’t have to be rich to stay here, tough it will be more expensive then most of the Greece. Despite the crowds, you can still sneak in a day of walking and getting lost in the beautiful tiny streets of Mykonos town. Due to heat mostly,…

Would You Wear a Bathing Suit as a Top?

Skirt H&M, bathing suit/top unknown, sandals Le Chateau, bag vintage Value Village, hat bought in Athens
From north of Greece and beautiful Khalkidhiki peninsula, we headed due south and reached this little town called Athens 😊. Athens Greece is simply beautiful. No matter where you are in the city, Gods of Acropolis are looking over you. It is such an amazing feeling especially at night when the city is covered by darkness and Acropolis shines in its full light and grandeur. It’s a wonderful feeling to be walking down city streets and being pleasantly surprised by monuments from Ancient Greece as you turn the next corner. I started of my city walk from Monesteriaki neighbourhood and walked around all neighbourhoods surrounding it, from Plaka and Kolonaki to Anafiotika and Gazi. I especially loved Anafiotika. If you love hilly neighbourhoods, then you will love Anafiotika. At night, you can sit on the stairs of cafés and enjoy a cold beer or a cocktail with all the locals. For …
