The Look: Dreaming Of The Aegean


Fernweh (n): A crave for travel; being homesick for where you've never been.

Having lived out of a suitcase for a thrillingly happy portion of my life, I feel the drive to just pack up, hop on a plane and be a bare-foot nomad.

Today the vibe of the Greek Islands is coming to me, through clean white and oceanic blue floral prints, topped with a whisper of dainty lace.



White Vintage Floral Summer Dress: Grab My Look (Get it here)
Espadrilles: Soludos
Lace Vest: Vintage
Earrings: From a market

This week I have been seriously craving travel. And I mean SERIOUSLY! And I thought my chocolate cravings were bad...

Although I live in the picture-book-perfect image of paradise, I still yearn to explore new places. Yep, I feel pretty selfish and a bit ridiculous admitting this; after all, just two and a half years ago Tropical North Queensland was that crazy-beautiful place that I was exploring for the first time.  Now I crave the exotic and unknown. Ooo...Don't I sound mysterious. **cough** lame **cough**

This little blue and white floral number was sent to me by the wonderful folks at 'Grab My Look'. I was lusting after it due to the exotic Mediterranean print: you could just imagine these almost embroidered-like blue flowers painted onto the side of the white-brick buildings in Mykanos, looking out into the warm Aegean see. **Drools**

For the balmy 'Winter' here in the tropics, I layered on this lacey vest. If the wind blows hard enough it gets a little cape effect and I can pretend I'm Super Woman. 

Then again, if I was Super Woman, surely I could just magically transport myself to the Greek Islands?

  4. I love the pattern on that dress! I like mine closer to knee-length so I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye out for something similar but a tiny bit longer. I love it! You look beautiful.
