After hearing about how amazing Crete’s beaches are and how beautiful the old town of Chania is… and after watching the movie The two faces of January, I was convinced and off to Crete, Greece.
Arriving there I got a bit disappointed from the big crowd of tourists in the old town of Chania… and that in the month of September; I can only imagine how crazy this town gets in August. Regardless, the old town is beautiful and the beaches I have visited are truly amazing! We took advice of where to swim and eat from a local man (clearly a man of good taste)!

This midi black dress by Sandro has become my go-to dress for this season.
The short skirt under the sheer midi length simply makes this a chic and fun cocktail dress.
I paired it with simple black strap sandals, a classic Chanel clutch bag and a gold custom made bracelet.

The best item to bring back from Capri, Italy is without a doubt a pair of handcrafted leather sandals.
I went a bit overboard and brought back three pairs… I just couldn’t resist to the opportunity of having my own design of leather Capri sandals handmade and customized just for me. Plus, I couldn’t decide on just one design.
Assuming that you are not indecisive like me and already know what design you want, the skilled artisan will have your sandals ready in about twenty to thirty minutes depending on the complexity of your design. You can also completely personalize your sandals by having your initials stamped into the sole.
Here are my souvenirs from Capri!
A chic summer escape: Capri, Italy.
It is one of the most beautiful places I have visited! It combines Italian traditional charm and contemporary elegance with breathtaking seascapes.
We stayed at the amazing Capri Tiberio Palace. However, if you want the full luxury treatment you can stay at the Grand hotel Quisisana. A historic hotel close to La Piazzetta and the luxury boutiques; also known for its rich and famous clientele.
There are some amazing places where you can swim in Capri. My favourite place is by the Faraglioni rocks at La Fontelina. Pictured above is Lido del Faro in Anacapri; another amazing place to go swimming.
Capri is undoubtedly a glamorous place to visit so here are some wardrobe essentials for looking chic during the day.
