POST-HOLIDAY HOLIDAY ESSENTIALS


We got back from two weeks of sun last week. Two nights on Syros, four on Folegandros, six on Milos, three in Athens.

It was heaven.

By the time we arrived on Folegandros we knew that we had taken far too much with us, Scotland can make it hard to remember that there are places where you won't need layers, where one cotton cardigan and a cotton scarf will be enough, where the same dress will be thrown on over a bikini day after day...

































Clockwise from top left: an easy dress (sadly sold out) to throw on over a bikini, zipped pouches, some holiday reading, a lightweight towel to use for swimming, sitting, or as a quick cover-up, a Summer dress for evenings, a coral lipstick that looks good with a tan, my favourite earrings, a canvas bag, sandals that go with everything.

I love everything about this post, G. And I have to tell you: I was just on the Baggu site this morning, before I came here, and I had decided to buy that very same bag (same color, even) for myself! xx

I do love that collection you've got there! Especially the sandals, they look perfect for your recent holiday :)

And when you've booked an amazio holiday, make sure you keep your spendios down by making extra saveyos on travel insurance, car hire, airport hotels and airport parking. Holiday Square

I've just painted my nails pretty much the colour of that lipstick. I'm thinking it's days are numbered as we march towards fall.
