We’ve just returned from a blissful two-weeks in Crete, which I’ll write about in due course, but in the meantime, here is a selection of my holiday outfits.
I didn’t photograph everything I wore, but there’s enough to give an idea. We stayed half-board in a chic, understated hotel. We spent most days in the sea or by the pool and ate most evenings in the restaurant. I took a selection of bikinis, beach dresses and eyewear for daytime and smarter dresses for dinner. As always, I overpacked and took a pair of heels and several pairs of wedges. Even in a five-star hotel like ours, heels were unnecessary- I’d have felt overdressed. Pretty flip-flops, flat sandals, espadrilles or wedges were perfect.
Some of these holiday outfits are new this year, others comprise items that I wear year after year. I’ll caption everything with and include a link when an item is currently available and will mark anything that has been gifted as such.
