Mellow Yellow in Mykonos, Greece

Hi Dolls,


I know it has been a few weeks but wait I can explain!  I just got home from an amazing trip around the Ancient Mediterranean!  Yep, that's right!  I spent 13 days travelling around parts of Italy and Greece and saw some incredible views and archaeological sights! Of course, I did so while being comfortable and stylish, darling!  I know most people immediately think of Santorini when beautiful Greece comes to mind and yes, Oia Village in Santorini was seriously one of the most breathtaking places I've ever been!  I will share my experience in Oia with you soon but first let's talk Mykonos! It was easily another favorite of mine, especially as the sun set!
  Mykonos is one of the more popular islands in Greece lined with white buildings, winding roads, beautiful sunsets, beaches, and all of the summer time feels!
In true fashionista form, I wanted to wear an outfit that would pop against the white buildings and blue trim so I went with this super cute and flowy yellow dress!
   I'm still loving the off the shoulder trend and going to Greece wasn't going to stop me from rocking the look!  Besides the bright yellow color, the sleeves and off the shoulder detail is what sold it for me.  
But back to this beautiful little town in Greece...affectionately referred to as "Little Venice".  The sunsets are gorgeous and there are plenty of waterside restaurants and bars to catch a bite or a drink while watching the sunset.
 I'm sure most would agree that the 16th century windmills of Mykonos are the defining feature of the island and a must see! They're meticulously situated on the famous landmark hill in Chora and can be seen from most points throughout Mykonos. 
 Though they are not in operation today, from the 16th to 19th century, they functioned using gusty Nothern winds to help grind wheat and barley.  Farmers were able to support their families by the goods they were able to manufacture with these windmills.
 Throughout Mykonos are twisting and turning streets that one could easily get lost amongst but the charm and landscaping will help you forget about being stuck in a maze!
 
 I absolutely loved the cobblestone roads and painted trim on all of the the buildings! 

Because of the cobblestones, hills, and uneven pavement, I had to stick with flat shoes.  I didn't need to sprain any ankles while on vacation!
Just as I hoped, the yellow dress was an excellent compliment to the white and blue streets!
And who can resist a photo with a beautifully painted blue door?!?! Or a hat with what appears to be someone's name on it lol!  Obviously not me!
Dress:  Ross/ Sandals:  Nine West
Mykonos was beautiful and so much fun to explore.  It was a smidget of the wonderful things I experienced over the last few weeks.  I'll be sure to share more but in the meantime, thanks so much for stopping by!
XOXO

  1. Beautiful photos! Was 13 days an ample amount of time to explore Greece or could/should you have shortened/lengthened the vacay for the same experiences?

    (side question: what size do you wear in pant/dresses, if you don't mind answering)

    Thank you!

    Gorgeous as always.

    1. Hi Sharonda, actually 13 days wasn't quite enough time. I visited two countries in those 13 days not just Greece. Im a 12-14, L-XL depending on the fit. Don't mind sharing at all.
