I wanted to squeeze this in as an extra little post before I got to the Greek food part of my Santorini series, in case it gives those of you that are heading on later sunny holidays a bit of inspo whilst there’s still a few bits in the shops!
Maxi and classy
This is what I wore to our wine tasting evening – I wanted something that would keep me cool and comfy but still looked dressed up and, let’s face it, florals are always a winner in the sun!
I’m not 100% sure I felt the flatforms went the best with this dress, but there were a lot of hilly areas and these were the only non-flat shoes I had with me. They were very comfortable and easy to walk in, I just think I’m not used to them.
Jumpsuit, Glamorous /Shoes, Nasty Gal (as before)
I’ve worn this jumpsuit most of the summer, for a long time it virtually the only suitable outfit I had for the unseasonably warm British weather! It’s very comfortable and eye catching and can be worn for day or night, my only quibble is that the straps were pretty tight woth no give so I was always worried they would break when I put them on and off.
Jumpsuits are definitely my jam rn, I seem to have loads of them all of a sudden. I have this one in 2 colours and it’s incredibly comfy and easy to wear in hot weather, however it’ll also be great to chuck on with a white tea and biker jacket when things start to get cooler. The shape is quite slouchy but looks really put together when belted.
The hat was an impulse purchase at the airport – I could barely see from under the brim but it kept me shaded and feeling a teeny bit more glam whilst sweating. The bum bag I already had before they exploded this year and is glorious for walking about hands free. The slides I’ve had ages and wear on the daily just for running about.
Since I was struggling to find holiday clothes this year, I thought I’d try a couple of items that I wouldn’t normally, and cycling shorts were one of them. They are ridiculously comfy and longer in the leg which is what I usually prefer with shorts, so that was a win, so to keep with the casual vibe I just chucked on this Camo tee (I customised the choker neckline) and knotted it at the bottom. I was quite happy with this look in the end, and even wore it on the flight home.
Rainbow and denim
This look was something of a clothing frustration win – I ALWAYS struggle to find denim shorts that aren’t halfway up my bum cheeks and fit my waist properly, however I stumbled on these that are super soft and stretch with an elasticated paper bag waist that worked really well. The other items were just a ‘I’m on holiday, let’s be colourful’ kind of a vibe.
Red red red
I adore this jumpsuit – it’s really flattering with the wide leg and ruched waist, which also made it really comfy, however the front is super plunging which causes some issues around boobage. I have a pretty large chest, so going braless isn’t an option for me, so the options are either one of those sticky bra plaster things (which I was wearing here but didn’t apply it properly and combined with the heat it didn’t stay in place at all) or a nude cami which is visible but a little more comfortable for me.
So that’s my holiday wardrobe for 2018! I hope you’ve enjoyed having a nosey and may have taken a little inspo if you’re off on your travels soon. My final post for Santorini will be up soon, which is a guide to food. Nom.
