A Whitewashed Moment On The Streets Of Chora | An Idyllic Afternoon On Mykonos

The whitewashed streets of Mykonos are iconic. The world has been inundated with images of its white buildings, blue doors and cobblestone streets, since Greece first marketed itself as a perfect summertime vacation destination. Not too much has changed since then, and you can still stroll the tiny lanes and be inspired by the beauty of the island.

I did just that, recently, on a three-day stay there. I spent the afternoon taking advantage of the low season and wandering the streets alone. I stopped at various places as the beauty of the color and the place was overwhelming. The buildings in Mykonos reflect the sun and the sea – a unique combination. I was taken by the blue hue of the locale and dressed in a pair of navy nautical linen Japanese pants I found recently in Tokyo. I love the rope detailing around the waist and mid-thigh. I paired them with a casual white oxford from Alexandre Plokhov and a pair of amazing slippers with Tuna detail from my absolute favorite iconic shoe brand, Stubbs and Wootton.
