Have you ever been to Aegean coast? Recently, Greece has been associated mostly with 'austerity measures', but this is not the first thing that comes to my mind. When I was a child, it was my parents favorite vacation destination. We did not have much money, but vacations and travel were considered basic needs in my family. We drove (from Poland) and it took us several days with many stops on the way (yes, those were month long European vacations). We had a camper and we brought a lot of our own food to save money.
I wish I have my own pictures to share, but unfortunately, my parents were not into preserving memories of beautiful sights and panoramic vistas. The scarce photographs that I have from those vacations always show us half naked on some ubiquitous, unidentified beach; my father in the one shady spot he could find, reading a book in a lawn chair, my mother sunbathing with a giant hat and a leaf attached to her sunglasses to protect her nose and me with droopy hair-bows almost falling off my wet, curly pigtails. My brother was never in the pictures because he always disappeared for hours with some newly met friends. I wished I could tag along, but was never welcomed or allowed (he is 9 year older than me).
|Perfect shirt in Aegean Plaid|
The shirt is currently sold out (as of the time of writing) but you can probably still get it in store or catch it on a popback.
|Shirt size 6. See review here|
Of course it would look beautiful with jeans but since there is some purple in the print, I thought this could be more fun with my Pilcro Stet Anthro cord and J.Crew pink Valentinas.
Sorry that the shirt looks a little messy. It wasn't intentional, like bedhair always sported by some catalog models. It is just that we usually take pictures on our walk to school and have about 2 minutes for it. Let's say this is a more realistic look...
I am a big fun of Ray-Ban sunglasses. I have been wearing another pair recently but I suddenly wanted a pair of traditional aviators. I have borrowed these from my husband (shhh), so they are a little too big, but I do want a pair of my own. I instantly felt a little bit cooler in them.
I am glad I ordered the shirt, I really like it.
One of these days I will go back to the Aegean coast. I think my parents had their priorities right...
That's all folks!
Have you been to Greece or want to go? What was your favorite childhood vacation spot?
Do you own the perfect shirt in Aegean Blue? How do you wear it?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
