Looking out over the Mediterranean sea, on top of a hill rises the Acropolis and its ruins overgrown with high rising grass and whey,
Our hotel was about 2 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes from the Archaeological Park,
on the beach you could see the ruins from the temples, and from the temples, (all Doric order)… well the view was magical!

This Greek colony dates from somewhere 650 BC, for a few centuries it was a powerful prosperity before it was wiped of the map by the Carthaginians and earthquakes, not until the 19th century was Temple E re-erected in this -by then- desolate ancient city.

I’m wearing a white eyelet skirt with an H&M slip dress,
Faux leather skirt, Antonio Madras silk top, Zara gladiator sandals

    Lovely outfit and the photos just keep getting better and better. One small thing though, I wish you didn’t post so many photos at once because it takes ages to load and a lot of the times they are pretty similar. I think if you pick out a few really outstanding photos you could make a more cohesive post! That said I really enjoy your little ‘editorials’, looking forward to seeing what you will be putting together for autumn. xxx
