Between the turquoise sheen of the Aegean Sea, the drop-dead vistas and the winding white washed pathways looming with luscious bougainvillea, it’s no secret that the Cycladic Islands in Greece are among the world’s most celebrated during the summer months. And when my husband and I decided to fete our anniversary with a weeklong jaunt to Mykonos and Santorini, my packing list began.
The vision? A clean, white palette accented with color—a low-key glamour reflective of island life. My daytime uniform of breezy Lemlem separates over a two-piece by Kiini will take me from lunch at local Mykonos hangout Kiki’s Tavern to rosé at the always-happening Psarou Beach. At night, a romantic eyelet dress by Zimmerman paired with a bold statement necklace and slip-on sandals will be perfect for strolling through Oia in Santorini.

I won’t need much in the way of beauty, as our home for the week, the luxurious Grace Mykonos and Grace Santorini accommodates guests with bespoke requests, ranging from the scent of the room to the shampoo in the shower (color-treated, thanks). Just an all-in-one face, body and hair dry oil sunscreen by Natura Bisse, and I’m good to go.
