Santorini with Apart / Travel Guide

I’ve just come back from beautiful Santorini. It’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to, without any doubt. I had to choose between Santorini and Mykonos for my first ever trip to Greece, but finally my choice felt on Santorini. I was surprised it was not only all about luxury hotels and turquoise pools, but mainly about the white architecture, cute houses and pastel-colored doors, spiraling paths between them, old school restaurants, which strongly reminded me of milk bars when I was in a high school in Poland and of course the incredible sunset views to the Aegean Sea. In short, I strongly recommend visiting Santorini to anyone!

WHEN? The best time to visit Santorini is not during the high season, but just before or after it, so in May / early June or October. There are three reasons. First of all, it’s less busy, which is very important because it’s a very small island. Secondly it’s not too hot but you can still enjoy sunny, warm weather and wear a bikini all day long. Finally it’s much cheaper and just affordable.

WHERE: Aqua Luxury Suites in Imerovigli. It’s a less popular village than Oia, but still very beautiful and much less crowded. In Aqua Luxury Suites you’ll have your own terrace with a stunning sea view. Some suites and apartments have their own pool, which makes your stay more or less like from a dream :)

FLIGHT: We flew to Santorini directly from London. It was quite a long flight, almost 4 hours on a plane which was a bit exhausting for me, especially because it was a cheaper airline. The airport in Santorini is tiny and, I’m not afraid to say, below standard. It’s very ironic, because the island is famous from it’s luxury hotels. As they say, ‘Nothing is for free’ and in this case it’s not about money.

EAT: Don’t expect any popular fast-food chain restaurants or cafes. In Santorini you’ll find a lot of traditional restaurants with Greek Cuisine. Try Saganaki ( fried cheese in filo pastry ) , Tomato – kefides or just greek salad made with fresh vegetables. In the grocery stores there is a huge range of olives, nuts and other Greek speiclities. For the sweet tooth try baclava!

McQ Swallow

The re-launch of McQ Swallow collection came as a surprise. The collection left it’s decorative past behind and moved into a more provocative, bold form with the swallow logo spelled out across the chest and sleeves, as redesigned by artist Tom Tosseyn. The collection is capital D Dark, rough and very real. It reminds me of rough kids from 90s street gangs. It’s very inspiring.
It only seemed appropriate to wear the striped prison-like sweatshirt with flared pants and platform shoes to spike this bad outfit with a drop of elegance. It has the perfect balance between rough and modern day femininity.
We ventured out to Kew Gardens to take these photos. The beautiful long windows of glasshouses and secretive balconies added something mysterious to the photos, and I must say I’m so pleased with the effect I now have a smug face on.

Gucci floral shirt

I’m a bit obsessed with the Gucci Cruise collection, from dresses to shoes and bags. It’s not a surprise, I don’t really know anyone who wouldn’t love it. I chose the floral print shirt from Cruise collection, but styled it with my favourite pair of Levi’s. As you know, denim is my second skin and it feels more ‘me’ to combine unique pieces with my favourite clothes rather than wear a total look from a particular brand, even when I love the whole collection and campaign. All this topped with a Moschino bag from Monier Freres, Akollekt pistol bracelet and platform sandals.

See-through dress and pearl earrings

I haven’t really been wearing longer dresses that much before. Mini dresses were always my thing. But sometimes you can get bored of your wardrobe and want to try new things, shapes, lengths. That’s how I discovered that the long dresses are my new mini. Particularly this one is just perfect because it’s see-through, which gives the perfect balance between elegant and sexy.

As far as accessories go, I wore my new pearl earrings and ring from Akollekt, Nunc shoes  and my new obsession, my first Gucci bag.
