Hi. My name is Simply Chic, I wear white after Labor Day, and I think you should too. 
Whether you are in Mykonos or Santorini, where you blend right in with all the white buildings, or you are back in the states in a colorful botanical garden, white is a good idea year ‘round. As they say in Greece, “why not”.

**Simply Chic Travel Tip: Greek Islands**
When travelling between islands I highly recommend taking the ferry vs a plane. It’s the most chaotic organized process (picture 100’s of people and some cars entering a massive boat with no line yet somehow the boarding process is quicker than a Delta shuttle flight) BUT you get to see various islands as you travel to your destination.

WEARING: nordstrom necklace, old navy dress (SIMILAR),thrifted belt, STEVE MADDEN TROVE SANDAL
WORN TO: travel from mykonos to santorini

This day in Mykonos was probably my favorite. Not only is Little Venice picture perfect with its colorful buildings and crashing waves, but I also got to eat dinner while watching the most amazing sunsetIt was so stunning, that when the sun finally disappeared from eyesight, everyone started to applaud. It was a very special moment.

The windmills were also very cool, but I was not at all dressed appropriately for all the rocks and uneven terrain. Nonetheless, it was also a highlight of this day.

WEARING: vest from the sample sale at work, thrifted shorts, urban sandals, hat from local (Mykonos) vendor, michael kors bag
Girl on a budget, this total look (minus the bag) was less than $30!

**Simply Chic Travel Tip: Mykonos**
While in Little Venice be sure to stop by SEMELI BAR and have the Summer Passion (vodka with exotic fresh fruits). You won’t be disappointed.

Also, wear comfy shoes (I didn't) that you don’t mind getting a little dusty if you plan to REALLY explore and get close to the windmills

platis gialos

I'm baaaaaaack, and still on cloud 9. Mykonos, and especially Santorini, are even more beautiful in person than they are in pictures, and as unbelievable as that sounds, I am not exaggerating. My posts for the next couple of weeks will show you what I wore (of course) and take you through some of my journey.

After 3 flights, 15 hours in the air, nearly 20 hours of total travel time and a 10 hour time difference, all I wanted to do when I finally made it to Mykonos was...HIT THE BEACH. Yes, I was in desperate need of a full night's sleep nap but who naps in a bed when you can nap on the beach overlooking the Aegean Sea

(the beach, the pool)

**Simply Chic Travel Tip: Mykonos**
People think of Mykonos as a party island, but it's a great place to unwind if you stay near the beach instead of in Mykonos Town AND if you choose the right hotel. If you are looking for luxury accommodations THE MYCONIAN AMBASSADOR is your place! There is a very zen quality about this property, not to mention there is a beautiful spa on site (with complementary services depending on your package) a fabulous pool and a staff that will bend over backwards to make sure all your needs are met. Staying here has a lot to do with why this island was so great!
