This season I am planning to write all my travel diaries while showing you all my travel outfits, I hope you will like my idea of an outfit diary! My season tales and summer look-books start with the cruise I took this June! I was invited by Forever Cruises to embark the ship Jewel of the Seas for 7 days on a cruise to my favourite summer destinations! We have embarked the ship in Italy, at Civitavecchia and the main stops were: Santorini, Mykonos and Niece! I had such a lovely time on board, on the Islands and in South of France as they have always been my go-to destinations during summer! I hope you will enjoy my visual diary and also my main outfit ideas for each destination!
The Instagram-loved-island, known for its romantic restaurants, the famous sunset and the swims in the crater of the volcano, has been the first stop of the cruise! If you are in Santorini for only one day or for a few days, I highly recommend to have dinner in the village of Fira and also, you should defiantly try the Santorini Assyrtiko wine or any Assyrtiko wine on the menu!
//What to wear: White-linen-dress//
When I received this lovely dress from March 11, I knew that it would be the perfect outfit for a lovely day in Santorini! The blue embroidery was matching the island’s view! If you are planning any trips on the Greek Islands, you need to have in your luggage a beautiful, linen white dress with for a complete Greek Island look
The second stop was Mykonos, it felt so good to be back to my “summer home”! I do not think I will ever get bored of this beautiful-party-Island! I do believe that no matter your age, Mykonos will steal your heart! Even though it is considered to be a party destination, there are so many relaxing beaches, amazing hotels, art galleries and restaurants so, if you do not feel like partying, you will still have a fabulous time!

//What to wear: Goddess dress //
For my day in Mykonos, I have chosen this beautiful, breathtaking dress by Kalita! I wanted to feel like a Goddess but in the same time, I wanted to be properly dressed for both a beach party and an elegant dinner! You can never go wrong this summer with a long, silky dress!
South of France
The last stop of the cruise was South of France, the beautiful city of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Even though it is close by Niece and Monaco, I have never been before, so I have spend my morning discovering the lovely city and taking millions of photos! The day finished with a lovely dinner and glass of wine in the port!
//What to wear: white with a touch of gold //
During my day in South of France, I have been wearing this beautiful dress from Next, paired up with some golden espadrilles and my favourite summer bag from Pinko!
4 days out of 7, we were cruising between destinations, so my outfits were all boat approved! During the day, you could find me by the swimming pool on the main dock – if you want to check my swimsuit post to see what I was wearing, you could do it – here! If I was not on the deck, I was discovering the ship bare foot in long dresses, enjoying the sunsets while sipping a glass of rose!

// Dress from Next//
//What to wear: Long dresses //
My favourite dresses of the season were the long-flowery-dress from Pinko which made me feel like in a modern fairytale and the red dress from Next which the most eye-catching item in my wardrobe!
It was my first trip on such a big and beautiful cruise ship, a floating city I must say! From now on, I would like to experience more cruises around Europe as this journey has been one of my favourites so far! I hope you enjoyed my summer look-book and tales! Let me know in the comments below, which outfit or destination is your favourite! xxx
