Fantasy Travel Week: Santorini, Greece

8 Comments

Although I am off from work this coming week, a big expensive trip isn’t in the cards. And that’s OK, no complaints here–but I am a dreamer. This week I will indulge my imagination and (mind) travel to the places I always wanted to visit–no passports or packing needed.

 

 

Ubiquitous pictures of the deep blue water next to white washed churches have made Santorini, Greece a place I’ve longed to visit.

 

One place I’d like to visit,  is Ancient Akrotiri–an archaeological site that was first discovered in the late 1960s, but dates back to the 16th century BC.  I’ve read that the former homes are decorated with prehistoric frescoes (related mural paintings executed on plaster on walls, ceilings, or any other type of flat surface) and pottery. Some other things to do can be found here: http://travel.usnews.com/Santorini_Greece/Things_To_Do/

 

While I am dreaming about this fab trip and all the places I’ll go, let’s add a killer wardrobe to complete my fantasy trip.

For lunch overlooking the ocean…

I could wear this striped silk dress. The gold gladiator sandals give it a casual yet elegant feel.

With all of the blue and white in Santorini, this orange Lavin jersey dress would be a nice stand out piece for a dinner overlooking the ocean with the hubby. Liz picsLiz pics by elizabethhorrell featuring stiletto heels

On a sunny day wandering the archeological sites, I could wear this striped coral shirt ensemble. I love stripes!

Stay inspired and enjoy life.

  3. Wow. Greece is gorgeous. The architecture is amazing. I hope you get there some day soon!

  4. The pics and commentary make Greece seem like an awesome place to visit. In my fantasy visit to some tropical island, I’ll be “wearing” that outfit with the orange dress!

  5. I know a couple who went to Santorini for their honeymoon and loved it. Reading this post made me feel like I was in Greece. It really took me away!
