The Travel List - Heading to Greece... by Elaine Lloyd-Jones

 

The Travel List - Island hopping in Greece 

Packing for a sun-soaked get away around the Aegean and Ionian seas requires an easy chic wardrobe that will see you effortlessly from beach and bar, to boat and beyond…

 

1. Earrings, £250 Kirstie LeMarque, www.kirstielemarque.com


Stacked earrings are the perfect way to add some subtle sparkle to beachwear. These mixed precious stone rainbow huggie hoops are top of my list. 

 

2.  £170 Sienna Alexander, www.siennaalexander.com

The aesthetic charm of these sunglasses is all in the shape and the split frame. Also, for every pair of sunglasses bought, they make a donation to Vision Aid Overseas.

 

3. Caroline Constas Andros bikini, £290, www.net-a-porter.com  

The shirred off-the-shoulder sleeves, the sunshine yellow gingham - this is the holiday bikini of my dreams.  

 

4. Anaskela Wishbone towel, £57, www.anaskela.com 

So lightweight, and so compact, I’ll be packing the Wishbone. Not just for its practicality, though, the colours of the print also happen to compliment the rest of this packing list, too. And when space is tight, everything has to work together. 

 

5. Kayu bag, £54, www.theoutnet.com 

Jute, straw, seagrass, bamboo - the natural texture trend is still going strong. For me, this bag is just the perfect size. Not too small for daily use and not too big for an evening.

 

6. Birkenstock x II Dolce Far Niente, £325, www.matchesfashion.com 

I’m usually an Ancient Greek loyalist but this latest Birkenstock collab, which sees the classic Arizona updated in raffia, with rose gold hardwear, has totally won me over. 

 

7. Connock London Kukui Oil Rich Body Cream, 200ml, £42, www.connocklondon.co.uk

I’ve recently discovered Connock London and this is a must of any beach vacay. The blend of Kukui and Macadamia oils is luxuriously rich, it has softening Cocoa Butter and Glycerine, and antioxidant Vitamin E to soothe, condition and hydrate. 

 

8. London Tea Dress Company Alice dress, £235, www.londonteadresscompany.com 

A great white dress is a summer essential. This pretty broderie version wouldn’t look out of place at the beach, or in a bar. It’s snug on top and and drops into a beautiful breezy mid-length skirt.
