As you already know, 2 weeks after my vacation to Chios, I left again, this time for Chalkidiki, the heaven on earth for us living in Thessaloniki. When I go to Chalkidiki, I usually stay at my cousin’s summer house, just outside N.Marmaras. The house is in a very quiet area, surrounded by trees, and almost-wild nature, and it’s only a few meters away from the beach (although you need to walk a lot to get there). My uncle bought the land many years ago, and built a cute house there, under 2 huge plane trees (platanus). You may remember telling you how much I love the platanus smell on last year’s post about Chalkidiki.
Well, most of our days consisted of lots of relaxation, swims at the sea, cooking, playing card games, and going out at nights in N. Marmaras. As we like quiet places, and avoid big clubs with lots of people, this was a typical night out for us this summer.
Before I show you my outfits, I have to tell you, that my priority before I left for my holidays, was to write and schedule my posts for you, and as a result, I packed my suitcase at the very last minute. So I grabbed most of the things I had with me in Chios (which were fresh-washed and ironed), and kept my heels at home.
A very relaxed outfit for the first night out
The next night, we went to Porto Carras, one of the largest holiday resorts in Greece, and took a walk at its huge premises, including 3 amazingly big swimming pools. I had gone there before, when I was younger, but now it seemed much better than before. I took many photos, but as I didn’t have my DSLR with me on this vacation (as my priority was to relax and enjoy my time there), all photos were taken by my small one at night, which means that they have very bad quality (one of the disadvantages of my point-and-shoot).

And by the way this is Shoe Save #15 for my Shoeper Shoe Challenge by Shoeperwoman.com.
These were my mom’s gift from a previous trip to Chios some summers ago, and from the time I got them, I wore them constantly. I’m afraid I’ll have to let go of them really soon, but I’ll postpone it as much as I can. They are one of my favorite and most comfortable summer pairs of shoes.
I was a swimmer when I was a child. I was swimming from the age of 4 till the age of 14 if I remember correctly, but I had to stop cause I had other priorities back then (such as school, and music). Let’s say that no one can say that I didn’t have after school activities during my childhood.
But as much as I love pools (in fact more than the sea), having your feet wet at the beach, is a great feeling.
This year I brought company with me. This inner tube for the sea or the pool was a great way to get a bit of a tan. And it went perfectly with my almost neon nails, as it was neon green itself.
I told you I like to re-wear almost completely the same outfits! This time, with flat sandals, and my latest buy, the tricolor clutch!
As I told you we did a lot of cooking those days, but I only manage to take one picture of the food before we devour it.
And now that I said tuna, it reminds me of our little troublemaker which was there with us.
We celebrated our last night there, with, what else, ice creams at Stefan’s and yummy summer cocktails at Cool bar!!! Our favorite spot!
With umbrellas too! Cute, huh?
So what do you say about my vacation? I didn’t go anywhere else around Chalkidiki this year… I tried to relax and enjoy our holidays with T. But some of you, asked to see photos, so I had to do a post, even with low quality ones. Hope you liked it!
See you next time with a new outfit post, after our vacation. A new Shoe Save maybe? Who knows! 😉
