My summer suitcase

Athens is pretty cool in August but it’s time for vacation: just a few days for relaxation. I am a workshopaholic after all!

Packing for holidays is real fun for me. I actually love this procedure. All i need is sun block, swimwear (all different types really), caftans, flat sandals, shorts, sunglasses, a few books. And that’s pretty much all you ‘ll find in my suitcase.

Keep it simple: sandals, swimwear, sunglasses

Clever packing is rule no 1! Since we spend most of the day at the beach, caftans, t-shirts and shorts are on the top of the list.

Jumpsuit Stella McCartney, sandals Tory Burch

Beauty is another big issue! My golden rules are: sleep and hydration. Sleep as much as you can and don’t forget to drink water. We should always take care of ourselves in any situation! After sun treatment is essenttial too: a rejuvenating bath, body milk to soothe your skin, face cleansing. Then you are ready to go out and about!

Ps: in my next post, i ‘ll tell you all about my favorite island, so stay tuned! Which one is it? Suprise!
