Friday's Fancies: Let's Fly Away

2/17/2012



1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 




Ever since visiting Athens and Mykonos in college - during a blissful 10-day break (side note: can you imagine having a 10-day vacation now? me neither) - I have wanted to go back with Ian. Mykonos was lovely, but I've also heard amazing things about Santorini and Crete. 


For this week's Let's Fy Away edition of Friday's Fancies, I'm pretending to travel to one of the Greek Islands. I'd wear the itty bitty blue bikini while sunbathing and sipping white wine, of course. Then, I'd throw on the neon yellow maxi skirt and a simple white tank to take me from the beach to drinks and a romantic dinner. Paired with Tory Burch wedges and the Clare Vivier clutch I've been eying for ages, I think it says jet setter without being too over-the-top, don't you?

Great outfit! I almost chose this destination as well, as I've been pining for the gorgeous Greek sights since visiting in 2002, but I got distracted by a sassy dress that screamed France. Hehe.

I love that your posts have such a distinct look and feel to them. I can always tell it's y'all before I even see the author/blog name in my reader. :)

Love this and love Greece! I haven't been in years. I have family there and was trying to convince my family to go visit this summer but they're thinking no because of the economy over there Would love to convince them otherwise. And this look would be perfect!

I am trying to track down the blue bikini - I pinned the image on one of our Pinterest boards ages ago and the original link didn't have the source. Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this and I can find the suit in time for Maui ;)

Happy Friday loves!
