Ionian Blue

I'm on holiday, so I am! In Greece: Zakynthos AKA Zante to be precise. On landing, I emerged from the plane like a particularly pale underground-dwelling mole, bewildered and blinking into the sun, because.. get this... it's warm here. Nay, it's positively hot! I'd forgotten what it was like to gain vitamin D from its most natural of sources. All hail the glorious Sun!

So I thought I'd share with you an outfit I wore last night when I consumed a huge amount of Greek food and an even larger volume of garishly-coloured and sometimes set-alight cocktails, chased by random shots we hadn't ordered, whilst checking out the biggest party town on the island. It was fun. Of sorts.

Yes I really am this pale. And what?

This fit and flare cut of this dress is my most favourite style as it is so flattering. I bought it back in April when I went on a holiday clothes shopping frenzy and managed to buy three blue dresses all in the same day. I swiftly came to my senses and returned one of them, as I figured purchasing so many new blue dresses was a little excessive, even by my standards. I haven't been able to find this one on the website but saw it was still in the stores last week, in white too. Clearly I like blue, though. Lots.

My Outfit:
Dress: Forever 21 (similar here)
Wedges: Topshop
Bag: Primark
Bracelets: River Island & Bekl

  8. Aaaa I am so jealous, I love Greece - the food, the people, the weather! I went to Zante when I was around 13 and loved it, but that was before it went big and busy so would love to go back. I love your dress so much, the colour is gorgeous on you and looks really good with your hair. Really like the pattern too - love aztec! Might need to have a wee pop to Forever 21 for my holiday wardrobe then! Enjoy the rest of your trip luck thing!
