I always admired Kalli Alevizou’s natural Grecian beauty and her amazing sense of comfy bohemian chic style. Every time I saw her she was wearing incredible artistic jewelry that made me want to take a sneak peak inside her closet. However, it was when she told me she is a tourist guide that I thought, this is what my readers want. An outfit post with a stylish approach to dressing different than mine and some expert advice about traveling to Greece.
I went to her house for coffee the other day and even though the plan was to shoot her outfit and take an interview including information about our cultural, historical and contemporary heritage, I ended up photographing every corner in her boho chic home, her jewelry and talking more about her favorite beautiful Greek Island, Aegina.
Kalli explains, “I love traveling and my jewelry is from anywhere in the world I find something I like, it can be from a flea market in Libya to Zara. ” Just to remind you it was Kalli who thought we should get two Zara dragon earrings instead of one.
She is also an amateur jewelry designer.
Kalli told me, “The secret to bohemian chic style is the way you combine your clothes and accessories”

Even though she lived for 10 years in Oia, Santorini when she was married to the owner of one of the most beautiful hotels in Greece, the luxury resort Perivolas, she divides her time between Athens and the magical Greek Island Aegina. She is involved in the running of a family business, a beautiful resort on the beach Apollo Hotel Aegina in the Agia Marina. Kalli loves Aegina because it is near to Athens, it’s inexpensive and combines neoclassical glamour with natural beauty.
