Mykonos with Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

mykonos

Welcome to Mykonos! As you guys remember, I went from Athens to the two most popular islands in Greece, Santorini and Mykonos with Mr. & Mrs. Smith, a site dedicated to curating the best hotels for you.

We headed to Mykonos to enjoy two nights on the beautiful island and checked into one of the hotels from Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Grace Hotel. The cute, minimal look of the check-in area felt refreshing, as we sipped cold glasses of water. We were escorted to our room where we had a small, yet charming balcony that overlooked the beach. Cutest! I was greeted with a bowl full of fresh fruit that looked too pretty to eat (check below for photo). What I love about the Mr. & Mrs. Smith site is that it gives you a breakdown of what to expect and some key points to keep an eye for for each hotel, it’s kind of a life saver!

The yummy breakfast was always worth waking up to, followed by quick dip in the pool before we headed out for the day. The hotel was a few minutes away from the little town where all the shopping and restaurants were, so it was easy to grab car service from the hotel to take us. We enjoyed strolling through the narrow streets that almost felt like alleyways. They were filled with high-end and kitschy shops and the cutest restaurants serving some of the best Mediterranean food you’ve probably ever tasted.

Although, everyone kept telling us that Mykonos was party town, we must of gone during off-season because it was extremely calm. We didn’t do any partying, but I genuinely enjoyed having a relaxing time with one of my best friends. Here’s a little glance of what Mykonos is all about!

Stay tuned for my last stop in Greece, x.  mykonosmykonos

How cute was my balcony? Every morning I would step out and look onto the beach. So calming.

Every little corner was picture perfect- from the windows to little chairs.

Real sea shells, how pretty are they?

The weather was a little too warm for us to take a proper ice-cream photo hence the melting of them. I, of course, got the bubble gum flavor.

This little shop had the most stylish sunnies, from Karen Walker to Miu Miu.

Taking you back to Paris! (still a few photos to share!) The weather was not too cold , it was just right for my cold weather standards because I’m definitely not the cold weather kind of girl, I hate the cold.

For this day, Betty and I visited my dear friends Morgane and Corentin from one of my favorite brands, Sezane. I always make sure that when I’m in Paris, I swing by to visit them at their dreamy studio- which is so beautiful btw! So we headed over to their studio for an early breakfast and a 3 hour catch-up session. Every time I’m with these three, time flies because we spend hours talking  and talking without ever looking at our phones!

Soon after, we headed back for a power nap and then woke up to grab lunch and roamed the city with all its beautiful backdrops!

I picked up these cool Nike sneakers at &OtherStories the first day i arrived. Walking around in sneakers and rad leather pants in Paris is definitely the way to go!

Can’t wait to go back to the city of lights soon! Stay tuned for a couple other Paris photos!

Ella in Versailles.

After jetting off to warm weather a couple of weeks ago, I decided I needed to visit one of my favorite cities to hang with one of my favorite friends because I was craving to be bundled up in layers in Paris while sippin’ on lattes, macaroons and taking long strolls near the Louvre.

The weather was just right- not too cold, not pouring. It was perfect enough to wear a couple of layers while not freezing my butt off. The first time I was in Paris, I visited Chateau de Versailles but were unlucky to actually go inside because we arrived a bit late. This time however, I made sure I went inside because it’s always been a dream and it’s truly inspiring!

This is the outside of the front part of the castle… it’s so magical! Sharing some photos from the inside soon. I wore our favorite knit sweater (which is back in stock!) and although its a chunky knit, I was still able to layer it with a jacket and scarf! Can’t wait to sport the knit with denim cut offs and my isabel marant dicker boots for a more spring look! It’s so versatile!
