Santorini Sunshine

I want to tell you that Santorini is all kinds of beautiful but it just doesn't feel right to tell you a lie.  Those beautiful white houses topped with blue domes? They're only found in two tiny little towns filled to the brim with selfie sticks, Chinese tourists and wanna be fashion bloggers (oops, guilty, guilty and guilty? heheh...). It's like walking into Times Square in New York, but with better weather and fresher seafood.  I hate to break it to you but the island is not a swash of white and blue left and right, up and down. Instead, much of it is a rocky terrain dotted with sparse vegetation, like sprouts of hair on a balding head. 

Did I thoroughly ruin Santorini for you yet?

In the last couple of years, Santorini has turned into one of the most overhyped destinations and while there's no denying its beauty, I thought it was about time someone painted a realistic depiction of this Greek island. Because I got jipped and I'd hate to see you set yourself up for disappointment too.  

So now that I've shared my disclaimer, I feel more justified in gushing about this place. When you finally find a quiet cafe tucked away from the hoards of tourists, Santorini is a dream - like you're floating cross legged on a white, puffy cloud nine (no, not high). And the waterfall of white washed homes cascading into the clear Aegean Sea?

It's spine tingling. 
The pinch yourself kind. 


Anyway, I took full advantage of Santorini's clean aesthetics and thought it made for the perfect backdrop of today's "please don't ever wear this to work" outfit (hey I figured it's summer and you might need inspiration for vacation dressing!). But if you're looking to style this for the office, may I direct you here instead.

PS - If you love these shorts but aren't quite sure how much mileage you'll be getting out of these crazy prints, (apologies in advance to your wallet) I've literally worn these shorts everywhere in every weather

Have a beautiful week ahead!
