Athens with Mr. and Mrs. Smith


Ever since I can remember, I’ve always made lists for everything. To-do lists, shopping lists, goal lists, dream travel list and so on. My dream travel lists was always an extensive one. I always dreamt of traveling the world, learning about different cultures, trying different cuisines and taking photos with iconic backdrops.

One of my top destinations that I’ve always wanted to explore was Greece. Anywhere between Athens to Santorini, or Zakynthos Island and to, of course, Mykonos. As my passion and appreciation for traveling continued to expand, I became more and more intrigued to visit Greece. Something about Athens’ ancient landmarks and Santorinis’ black sand beaches drew me to see what Greece was all about.

As I crossed off destinations off my dream travel list more and more, Greece was still the one place where I had yet to visit. I was able to team up with Mr & Mrs Smith to make one of my dreams happen! Off I went to GREECE! Lucky me!

Mr & Mrs Smith is a collection of curated hotels carefully selected from all over the world. The team has scouted left and right and stayed in hundreds of hotels to narrow down the best of the best boutique hotels across the globe to make our lives easier when booking a room. Their expertise and their reviews on each hotel make booking so much more easy and convenient. It’s reassuring to know the low-down for each hotel you’re interested in before actually booking.

What I love is that you can search by “Budget Boutique Hotels”, “Child-Friendly”, “Spa Hotels” and ” Hotel Villas and Cottages” just to name a few. Makes searching for the right hotel that much more easier! Love that!

They told me to pack my bags and jet off to GREECE! ahhhh! I couldn’t be more excited to finally be able to experience this on my own.

Our first stop was Athens. We checked into their super cool, cutting-edge hotel called NEW HOTEL. It was everything I expected and more! It was quirky, yet sophisticated and sexy. The staff was hip and young. The decor is pretty, bold and fun (most of their furniture found in the hotel was restored so that it could be NEW again). It’s locally centered from the Acropolis which was a definite plus. The rooftop/deck provided some of the best cocktails drinks I’ve had paired with a ‘too pretty to eat’ charcuterie plate. On top of that, it overlooked the beautiful view of Athens.

My favorite part of the hotel was the food- it was contemporary, fresh and so delicious! Their menu had several of Mediterranean dishes I love like herb risotto and sea bass! Yum!

Excited to share my photos from Athens in partnership with Mr & Mrs Smith! Stay tuned for the next two stops we made!


The pretty terrace view!


I’m a huge fan of succulents, so my heart jumped for joy when I saw they had them all over! So cute!


What I woke up to… view from my balcony!


Perfect set up!


So UNREAL. Felt truly lucky to be able to see the Acropolis and Odeon of Herodes Atticus.


I loved the sink/vanity area in our room! So futuristic chic.

Tweed & Fringe.


One of the best combos for fall and really in general, is a great tweed jacket paired with vintage Levi’s, white basic tee and a Chanel bag. It’s the perfect combination to take you from day to night, from brunch with girlfriends (with flats on) to date night with your guy (switching into heels!).

Something about tweed jackets makes me feel really classic and elegant but for my personal style I always try to dress down “elegant” to a more laid-back look. This awesome tweed + fringe (thumbs up for this combo!) jacket from Storets has all the right elements that I look for when purchasing classic statements pieces.

For example:

  • The fringe gives it a fun, young vibe.
  • The loose, raw hemlines makes it look a bit more effortless (would look perfect with a rock band vintage tee)
  • The length sits right on your waist giving you versatility with jeans, dresses and skirts!
  • The black and white tweed is not only classic but makes it easy to mix & match with other fun prints in your wardrobe.
  • The buttons add a cool detail.

When I was putting together this look, the first thing I thought of was my 501’s and Chanel. I knew I wanted to wear a super laid-back look and this combo definitely fit the script.

How would you wear this tweed jacket? Give me some ideas! xx
