Postcards from Santorini










We're now in Mykonos but I can't say enough good things about the small Greek Isle of Santorini. Population 13,000, charm 1,000%. It is the most picturesque place I've been to, with its winding streets, small shops, and incredible cliffside views. We stayed in the town of Imerovigli, which sits right in between of the capital city of Oia and the larger town of Fira. We took a catamaran tour of the Caldera, rented a car to explore the island and the town of Oia and got lost around Fira after a sunset dinner at Archipelagos. Here are my tips if you're planning a trip to Santorini:


Stay:

Dine:
Anogi - home cooking at its best
Archipelagos - fabulous views at sunset

Explore:
Spiridakos - Catamaran tour of the Caldera
Rent a car and get lost while exploring
Walk around Oia and Fira and get lots in the charm!


Shop for:
Korres products
Greek sandals - they're everywhere!

Outfit: Santorini Blue




Greece is a magical place. Just magical. The magnificent views, friendly people, colorful surroundings, perfect weather, delicious mediterranean food and the best company. All these elements together make up the recipe for an amazing vacation. But we'll go back to my recaps of the cities / islands we're visiting later... for now, let's talk outfits. This Alice and Olivia silk shift has been on heavy rotation this summer and when I was packing for our trip I knew it had to come with me. It's so comfy and airy - plus the color goes so well with Santorini! Unfortunately, this exact dress is no longer available but how insanely gorgeous is this embellished mini for the holidays coming up? And accessories? A ton of Soria Z., Julie Vos, and Lauren Merkin. Duh.
