Me in Mykonos

This summer I returned to Mykonos, Greece. When I first visited this glorious island while in university, I didn’t really know what I was doing. This time, at the urging of my Greek manicurist, Helen, I planned carefully and picked September to travel. It was the perfect month to go — still warm, but with less tourists and less traffic. Island life is transformed in September, a real temptation; I don’t need a hustle-bustle on my relaxation time.

I found a little heaven called the Nammos Village — chic, tres chic — and  stayed at the Myconian Ambassador Hotel and Thalasso Spa Center, a few steps from the golden sands of Psarou in Nammos beach.

Nammos is among the most highly recommended places to travel, as my fashionista friends would put it, but funny enough, this place is not common knowledge.

Nammos is a tranquil and beautiful landscape and shopping village, full of grand and international designers and an incredible collection of contemporary art displayed throughout the property. It’s for the acquired taste, however. And as everyone knows in Nammos, “life is a party and you dress for it,” so I took the time to dress for Nammos, known to be a "breeze of luxury."

That being said, I recommend you leave your wallet at home. I ordered a bouquet of flowers in turmeric was a gift for my sister and dyed to match her decor...just under $300 USD!

I also spent time exploring an open-air contemporary art gallery, wearing my red, limited-edition Oscar de la Renta earrings. They were given to me by a shopaholic friend with great taste. Striking, n’est pas?

What’s your dressing style for vacation?
