I’m back! Matt and I just had the three most wonderful weeks of our lives and we are now soaking it all in. I didn’t expect to take quite as much time off blogging as I did, but I really wanted to spend as much time as possible being a newlywed on a honeymoon :) Do you blame me!?

This is an outfit I wore when arriving from the airport to Santorini, Greece. If you’ve been following on Instagram, Facebook, or Snapchat, you have probably seen what we did everyday, but if not, I will be sharing that through my honeymoon outfit posts!

We arrived to our hotel, Volcano View (I 150% recommend- check out the photos online, so cool!!), before check-in and had to wait about an hour before we could enter our room. We happily spent that time grabbing a drink and checking out the hotel- this view is actually just outside of our room and the restaurant. It was, to say the least, breathtaking. We are so lucky to have woken up to that and seen it so many times throughout our stay- it almost didn’t seem real!

So this dress was a great choice for the airport because it was so easy and comfortable. I put it on at about 6am and still felt comfortable enough, as if I were in pajamas. However, I felt really modern and put-together with the playful red stripes and lace-up sandals. I was comfortable wearing it in Santorini while in the shade. I ended-up changing, though, because the material, ponte, is quite thick and therefore was too warm for an 88* day. A swimsuit was a better option ;) This dress also comes in a black and white stripe and is currently on sale! It will transition perfectly for fall with boots, too. What do you think?

¡Por fin, he regresado! Matt y yo acabamos de pasar las últimas tres semanas increíble, con amigos, familia, y en lugares divinos. No iba a dejar de hacer entradas en mi blog por tanto tiempo, pero me perdí en los momentos de nuestra luna de miel y no quise pasar tiempo en mi computadora, sino afuera, explorando con mi nuevo marido. ¿Me podrían culpar? 

Bueno, llevé este vestido en el aeropuerto y al llegar a Santorini, Greece. Si me siguen en Instagram, Facebook, o Snapchat, ya saben todo que hicimos. Si no, les voy a contar durante las próximas entradas.

Pues llegamos al hotel, Volcano View (¡¡lo máximo!!), temprano entonces pasamos una hora tomando daiquiris y explorando el terreno. Las vistas están increíbles en Volcano View. No había mejor vista de cualquier punto en la isla, y casi no parecía real. Cada mañana, tarde y noche, vimos el mar, otras islas y volcanos. Impresionantes, todos! 

Pues, este dress se los recomiendo 100%, sin duda, por varias razones. La tela es fuerte, sino estira fácilmente. El estampado es llamativo, sino clásico. La silueta es sencilla, y algo fácil poner para cualquier día. Me sentí pulida y cómoda llevándolo en el avión, y la única razón por cambiarme del vestido fue para ponerme el traje de baño y nadar. Sin embargo, tenía muchas ganas de llevar el vestido otra vez. Será perfecto para el otoño con botas… verdad?
