Packing for a Destination Vacation From My Bed

Todays destination: Greece.

Since my bank account and the fact that I am still a college student is holding me back from putting a pause on my responsibilities to hop on a plane to Europe, I’ve decided to imagine what one of those trips would be like.

And there is nowhere I want to travel to more than Greece. Its aura is clean, simple, and bright; what I imagine to be a breath of fresh air.

The landscape, islands, and tourist attractions put it high on many travelers list of places to visit. For the day I get to visit, I have put together this guide on essentials for looking and feeling good across the islands of Greece.

Why linen is your best option

Breathable, comfortable and long-lasting, linen is your best choice for hot summer months. One of the biggest takeaways I have learned from shopping for linen is to buy it at your destination; in this case Europe. The best linen fabric is known to come from locations in Europe like Italy, Belgium, France, and Greece.

For a place where sight-seeing is a must and a nice dinner is the perfect (and only) way to transition into clubs and night life, here are some of my favorite pieces I have come across as my own personal stylist.

Occasion: Sight-Seeing

STRETCH LINEN-BLEND DRESS – Pair with gold jewelry and a fun handbag. Keep the shoes comfortable with sandals or a timeless sneaker.

KNIT HALTER TOP – Pair with white bottoms and sandals for a clean look.

OVERSIZED LINEN SHIRT – Wear as a basic staple to dress up or down any outfit for any occasion.

DELHI SHORTS WHITE LINEN – Pair with a matching linen button-down or a bright tank or blouse.

EYELET BALLOON-SLEEVE KIMONO – Some attractions like churches may require you to cover up exposed skin so don’t forget a lightweight kimono or shawl just in case.

MALLORCA TOP – Pair this simple linen top with linen pants, blue jeans or a maxi skirt.

POPLIN MAXI DRESS – For a comfortable day (or night) of sightseeing, choose a light and breezy maxi dress. To keep it casual pair with sneakers or a platform sandal and a knit bag.

OLINA LINEN PANT – Another perfect staple to pair with any casual or classy top, accessories and shoes.

MEDITERRANEAN PRINT HIGH-LOW MAXI SKIRT – Pair with a simple top and shoes to still look chic while still being comfortable. Another maxi skirt option here.

Occasion: Beach Day

LINEN GAUZE BLOUSE – Throw this top over a bikini or wear it for a night out.

TORI BANDEAU BIKINI TOP, BINDED UNO BIKINI BOTTOM – Pair a neutral bikini set (or one piece) with a linen cover up.

WILDER COVER-UP – Tassels and trim detail keep your trip to the beaches of Greece stylishly chic and clean.

Occasion: Dinner at a Taverna

LINEN BLEND STRAIGHT PANTS – Tailored pants dress up any outfit. Emulate this look with a matching blazer or pair with a statement top.

DANI CONVERTIBLE ONE PIECE – Pair a simple one piece like this one with minimalist jewelry and heels.

RUCHED BLOCK HEEL MULE – Finish off any look with this simple heel (available in multiple colors). Keep it neutral to keep the attention on your clothing or opt in for a brighter hue to make your shoe the star of the show.

PATTERNED BUTTON BUSTIER – Find pieces with gold accents and pair with simple linen pants to put together an upscaled look for a night out.

OCEAN BLUE LINEN SHORTS – Opt for a fun bottom (or matching co-ord set) paired with gold accessories and a contrasting heel.

LINEN BLEND STRETCH SKIRT – Style a sleek midi skirt for a sexy and chic look. Try for a monochrome look and finish off with a statement jewelry piece.

Occasion : Night Life

SATIN EFFECT DRESS – Night life is a huge part of European and Mediterranean culture so be prepared with plenty of club dresses and high (but comfortable) heels.

Here are some more options from:

Revolve – retrofete Kai Dress

Rhode – Maya Dress

Zara – Open Back Blazer Dress

SIDE SLIT RIBBON RIBBON SILK MAXI DRESS – For a more formal night out, midi and maxi dresses are essentials.
