I buy bikinis almost as much as I buy shoes, and this J. Crew/Target bikini combo is bar none my favorite right now. I wore this retro inspired suit earlier this summer to a pool party, and then again to Perissa, one of the many gorgeous black sand beaches in Santorini.

I always thought it was so cool to be laying on the beach in California and look out and see the mountains in the distance, and it still is very cool.  However, I was completely amazed to see a  beach with mountains just steps away. In my book, it's the 8th wonder of the world.

**Simply Chic Travel Tip**
On the the other side of that beautiful mountain, there is another, larger more lively beach called Kamari. There is a complimentary shuttle boat that takes you from one side to the other, so you don't have to swim ;) Perissa beach is also an extension of Perivolos beach. Go here if you like water activities.

  13. Definitely one of the wonders of the world, cause in the beaches I've had the pleasure of enjoying, I've never attended one that had mountains in the backdrop. That had to be an awesome experience. Based on the pics alone, I co-sign amazing sentiments. Not to mention how I'm always like, she travels to the most gorgeous places.
