All In White

The only downside to our little break in Mykonos, was that it felt like it flew by in the blink of an eye. One moment we were arriving at Gatwick, bleary eyed ready for our WH Smith and Boots runs for the 7am flight- and the next we were queueing up in Mykonos airport ready to head home…

Three days somewhere as beautiful as Mykonos will never be enough, but I feel very fortunate we got to tick it off at all- it just means we’ll have to plan a return soon, right? There’s a honeymoon idea if ever I saw one!

Our last night was possibly the most relaxed of all. We’d spent the morning at Ornos beach, with me paddling in the sea as Joe nursed his little burnt chest (trust me, he was laying on the factor 50, he’s a sensible Sally).

We headed back to the hotel for lunch- as by this point, I’d developed a real taste for their fresh Greek salads and was about 80% pitta, 10% tzatziki and 10% olive oil. It was then time to finish off my holiday reading (more on that here) and get ready for the evening- remind me why it’s taken me so long to book a beachy holiday again?!

I can’t believe in the 9 years Joe and I have been together, it’s taken this long for us to book a truly relaxing beachside holiday. We’ve always been city breakers through and through, and this holiday was definitely the one that I realised that perhaps we could both do with a bit of down time every now and again. I feel incredibly fortunate that my job entails a lot of travel as it is- some of which, do feel like really special bucket list trips- and my god, do I feel lucky about it. But truly letting go and spending time with one another just can’t be beat, and I’m vowing to make sure that whether it’s home or away (last years summer trip was to Cornwall and will always be one of my favourite holidays) we always make time to spend special time together- cheeeeeese!








So- that was our whistle stop trip to Mykonos! I really hope you’ve enjoyed following along with our little adventures and found the guide useful too. I have one more beauty themed holiday post going up next week, as well as a packing video over on YouTube, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for both of those too! Have a gorgeous weekend, folks!

    Short holidays like that always feel like they go in the blink of an eye – but as you said, it just makes you want to come back!
    Sometimes a relaxing holiday at the beach or in the countryside is much needed versus city breaks. It just feels like you can slow down and enjoy the moment πŸ™‚

    These photos look beyond beautiful, and make me want to eventually make it to Greece. I don’t know where I’m going to next year, but already making it across the Atlantic ocean for the first time this year was huge for me! I’m so excited to go back and explore more of Europe in general! Great post xx

    You look so amazing in all white!! Don’t know if I could ever pull it off haha, but I especially love the blouse; I need to pick up something just like that!! I’ve never really been too interested in traveling to Greece, but lately I feel like I’ve been hearing & reading so much about it; it seems like I need to add it to my dream travel list! xx

    You have a great photographer, you look so amazing, especially the last photo.
    I thought it was a dress in fact it is not, you matched them together.
