what to take on holiday

For evenings out on holiday, dresses really comes into their own. They can be worn with sandals, jeweled flip flops or pretty kitten heels. We always dress up at night as we treat every evening as a date night. 

Have you noticed my hair is down for once? There was a few minutes when the wind went down but not for long as you can see below! I ended up having to go back to the apartment to put my hair up!

I adore maxi dresses, can you tell yet? My wardrobe is full of them in all different colours. I find them so easy and comfortable to wear.

I couldn't resist having my photograph taken next to the mural of Zeus. I was fascinated by it and the colours were lovely.

This dress comes out of my wardrobe every year. I have had it quite a while but I never get tired of wearing it. I usually layer it with a jersey dress underneath. I had a turquoise blue one on here but I also wear it with a pink one too. 

We found a bakery selling the cutest little ice-creams I have ever seen! It's part of our holiday tradition to eat ice-creams while we are away! Pistachio, mint, chocolate, white chocolate; so many flavours to choose from!

This dress is from the wardrobe too, I love the fact it is strapless and I find it very slimming.

I fell in love with this skirt as soon as I saw it. I love the cut of it and the way it falls at the back. Perfect for summer evenings. I normally wear a plain black t-shirt with it.

Have a lovely day everyone.
