The Lindos Look Book

Dragging out the summer wardrobe to find its all a little over worn, a size too small (none of us actually do a bikini diet anymore right?) or a tags-still-on regrettable buy… there’s no better excuse to go on a shopping spree. 

Prior to Lindos, I experienced the British ‘I have nothing to wear’ crisis and so hit up Westfield in hope of a holiday makeover. I was pretty surprised at my luck!

White Sandals – Oslo 2, now £18 from Office

These ‘Espadrilles’ style sandals from Office are crazily comfy, with a thick sole and wide straps. I wore them on most casual day trips. They are now reduced to £18 and available in a range of colours!

Dress – Petite Stripe Sundress now £18 (damn it!) from Miss Selfridge
Brown Sandals – Blowfish Granola Sandals, Whiskey Dye Cut £40 from Office

I think this is my new favourite summer dress. It’s so light and comfy to wear, day or night. I’d seen it in Miss Selfridge a few weeks before and knew it would be the ultimate Lindos dress! It’s only available in Petite but I can assure you as a 5ft8 lady, it isn’t too short and will fit us tall ones too. Plus its now reduced to £18 in the sale… why does that always happen after you buy something!

 These Blowfish brown sandals are also super comfy to walk around in all day. They have a slightly soft thicker sole and stretchy back so you can slip them on and off easily.

Silver Bangle – £3.99, also available in gold from H&M
Recycled Solid Silver Rings – Double Continuous Ring £35 and Glacial Band (Wide) £45 from Saints of Bohemia
Silver Necklace – £2.99, also available in gold from H&M

This collection of jewellery was (and still is) my everyday wear. I just wanted a couple of cheap pieces for the holiday so picked up the bangle and necklace for a shockingly low price in H&M. They went perfectly with my new rings from Saints of Bohemia, a great brand that I came across at Spitalfields Market. They use recycled solid silver to create a gorgeous range of unique jewellery. It took me a very long time to decide!

 Hat – Straw Hat With Bow £22 (I can’t find the exact one but there’s a gorgeous range on the website) from Accessorize 

I was also super happy to find the ultimate summer straw hat! I’m normally super fussy when it comes to choosing a hat but after seeing the super cute bow on this gorgeous Accessorize floppy hat, I knew it would be the perfect choice. I can’t seem to find it online but it was a full priced item in June so I assume it is still in stores.

It also complimented by 50s style outfit that I wore to the Lindos Acropolis. I paired an Asos everyday v-neck tank top with my new daisy denims from Collectif. I also discovered this cute little shop in Spitalfields Market and fell in love with these gorgeous vintage-style shorts.

Denim Shorts – Sharon Daisy Denim Shorts, £25 Collectif
Sunglasses – Jessica Preppy Sunglasses £12 from Accessorize

They zip up at the side leaving a smooth front, and the stretchy fabric (hello 3% spandex) allows for complete comfort (even when walking up a steep hill in the boiling heat).

I paired this outfit with some more Accessorize goodies including sunglasses, a trio of gold jewel bangles, a lovely gold plated ring and a white leather bag.

Ring – Oval Stone Ring now just £5.10 (OH COME ON!) from Accessorize
Bangles – Set of 3, from the Accessorize summer sale
Bag – White handbag from Accessorize (no longer online)

I wore my new flats with this outfit, a pair of white boat shoes from Dorothy Perkins. They are so soft on sore feet, with a padded sole and soft leather look material.

Shoes – White Loafers £10 in the sale from Dorothy Perkins

For cool evenings I had two favourite dresses, both from H&M.

The first is a maxi dress with two splits down the front and a gorgeous open back, perfect for showing off a tan!

Earrings – In the Accessorize summer sale

I am also in love with this short summer dress from H&M, it was perfect for the hot evenings in Greece and also for our London heatwave! I love the pattern and its flattering shape is perfect for all those curves.

I paired it with a pair of strappy black sandals from New Look. After wearing them on a night on the town, I can confirm that they are suitable for dancing the night away!

And there we have it! I hope you’ve had a successful summer shop and maybe even have seen something that would look great on your holiday.

    This is so helpful, I hardly ever see destination specific outfit posts with clothes I actually like and would wear! So, thanks! Looks like you had a great time in Greece, and even though it sucks about the sales if you’d have waited for the reductions you wouldn’t have had such great outfits to wear on your holidays!
