it was another 5am wake-up call for our second morning in santorini and it was this day that i thought andrea was going to throw the alarm against the wall...but it was a good thing she didn't! one of the reasons that this morning was my favorite in santorini wasn't because i was wearing this ahhmazing skirt but because i felt like we had our bearings of the city. our first day we were simply exploring oia and getting lost in the many streets. but come day two, we were "experts." we were able to pinpoint the exact places we wanted to venture to first and that was a monumental stress-reliever.
in a sea of blue and white, i knew i needed to shake things up and gave this city a classic pop of red. i decided to wear this dress on our first real night in santorini (i don't count the first one as we went to bed as soon as we arrived) and it paired so well with the sunset that night! it was perfectly flowy enough to keep me cool and it still allowed me to eat all the food at black rock. and the flowy dress was necessary because andrea and i ate all of the calamari they had in stock.
after a two-week blogging break and a little trip to greece (nbd), i'm back baby! i am so excited to fully share with you all about my trip to greece with andrea. after so much time planning and pinteresting, our departure date definitely snuck up on us and somehow i still felt like we had nothing planned.
gingham is back baby, and i couldn't be more excited! it has been too long since i've worn my favorite spring and summer print and am so relieved that it is becoming a staple in my wardrobe. but what isn't a staple in my wardrobe is the color yellow...i know. i honestly can't tell you the last time i owned something in that color! i just have never thought it looked good with my skin tone so i would continue to bypass yellow when shopping. however, in the spirit of spring, i figured i had to give this pastel-perfect dress a shot! needless to say i was not disappointed.
