Second Day in Athens

SUNSET FUN. I have yet to tell you so much about our Athens weekend getaway. On Saturday my boyfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary. We wanted the entire day to be very relaxing without any stressful planning and the focus being on spending quality time together. After sleeping late we headed out to the city for lunch and strolled through the streets of Athens up the hill to visit the ancient Acropolis. Unfortunately, it had closed much earlier than we thought and so we enjoyed the sunset on the nearby rocks instead. And oh how beautiful it was! The sun stained the entire city with a stunning golden light – it was breathtakingly beautiful. Afterwards, while getting changed for dinner at the hotel room we took a moment to celebrate the occasion with some champagne and chocolate. Perfect aperitif for an even more perfect night if you ask me. I’m gonna tell you more about the restaurant in a separate post, though.

As for the outfit I chose a very casual look combining a sheer maxi skirt with a simple grey shirt. Last week I picked up this hat from Topshop and can’t believe that I have not regretted it yet. I’ve never really had the courage to wear a proper hat, but this beauty convinced me that it’s actually pretty amazing to wear hats. Besides, it did help to get some protection from the sun – since in the haste of packing I forgot to pack all my sunglasses. The necklace was a birthday present, but I don’t get to wear it as often as I’d like since most of my jewelry is gold and that makes it a bit hard to mix and match. And now onto the boots… love love love at first sight. Even though, after wearing them every day this week, the quality isn’t necessarily the best. Let’s see how it goes.
