As I mentioned in my Summer Insta Picks, here is the post on paradise that I promised..
Way back when in June I visited Rhodes in Greece with my family and I had the loveliest time. When some people go on holiday they like to just sit by the pool for a week and not do anything, however I love going on excursions, visiting places you’ll never visit again. We took a trip to a tiiiiny island called Chalki.
WARNING: This post may give you holiday blues.
When the rep told us about Chalki she explained it as being a totally non-commercial working island, meaning no tourists. We all snigger at the irony in that, but when we arrived it was just like that. The locals all seemed to sit up in their seats when our boat pulled in, each restaurant trying to pull us in.
We had a delicious lunch in a little place by the harbour then made our way to one of the beaches. It was only big enough for about 15 sunbeds and we pretty much had it to ourselves which was perfect. These photos don’t do it justice as to how beautiful it really was.
If you ever have a chance to visit here, or any other tiny islands off of Greece I would totally recommend it before they get discovered, and taken over by dozens of shops selling tea towels, ash trays and the usual holiday tat.
I’m currently in that sad limbo part of the summer where you have nothing to do, but in my case, not enough time to do anything productive (like work) as I’ll be heading back to uni in about a month. I’ve taken to looking through all my holiday photos whenever I’m bored, so you’ll be seeing a few more posts which include sunshine and the sea…
Top- Zara | Short- Zara | Sandals- New Look | Bag- Primark| Sunglasses- Asos
I put my Zara two piece top together with my new shorts on a win and I think they look really cool together. The rust colour of the top matches the shorts almost perfectly and it’s such a nice colour for summer when you have a tan.
I wore his outfit at Glastonbury too which worked really well together as in the evening I just ended up layering myself with jumpers and my raincoat, still showing the shorts for a bit of detail. Whoever said they don’t care what they look like at a festival was lying….
I also really liked my hair here. I never have just a ponytail but on holiday you can’t be dealing with your hair everywhere and I thought it actually looked really cute, and it’s been go to hair-do recently.
A week or so ago I went to Rhodes (Greece) for a girly family holiday. It was here when I realised how pale I actually was and felt cheated that people around me let me get in that state, a girl needs her vitamin D…
This was one of our last nights (I upped my tan game on the last few days don’t worry) when we had a bit of time to spare before heading to dinner, and my mum wasn’t too hangry to take photos (although trying to find a suitable place to take photos did take her there)….
Top- Topshop | Skirt- Topshop | Sandals- New Look | Bag- Primark | Sunglasses- AJ Morgan
Like every other girl in the nation, I have become a big fan of these floaty gypsy-esque tops. They look super cute while hiding everything that needs to be hidden, which is a must when you’ve spent a week at an all inclusive hotel which serves pancakes on the beach.
Nothing shouts summer more than denim, and this top goes perfectly with anything denim making it a holiday staple. I picked up this skirt in petite as it was the only one I could find and I was desperate for it, but take my advise ladies, DON’T DO IT! It’s so short on me I only got away with no tights because I was on holiday! I’m seriously regretting not waiting now..
I hope you’re all enjoy the sun every time it pops out of the clouds!
