Despite the political turmoil in Greece, I feel blessed. We can swim in September, we go to outdoor movies ( I saw the Woody Allen movie, Irrational Man, last night in Kifissia ) and we wear white summer dresses during Fall.

If you follow TrendSurvivor@Instagram you probably know I was on cruise in the Mediterranean sea. We started from Kithira, went to Monemvasia, Kiparissi, Spetses and Poros.

I wore this outfit for our night out in Monemvasia, located in Laconia, Greece. A romantic magical place where the small town walls and many Byzantine churches remain from the medieval period. The town and fortress were founded in 583 by inhabitants of the mainland seeking refuge from the Slavic and the Avaric invasion of Greece.

We went for dinner to the best traditional taverna inside the castle called Matoula Restaurant. ( Here is the telephone number, if you ever visit, because you need to book in advance +30 27320 61660) It is located on the main alleyway of the Castle of Monemvasia and its history is interrelated with the history of the castle itself as it opened in 1950, gaining by far the title of the oldest and most renowned restaurant of the area.

Before dinner we went shopping, there are many cute shops but there is one jewelry store that stands out. My second travel tip is shopping at Eleni’s Lekaki jewelry store. I particularly loved the Byzantine inspired designs by Gerochristo jewelry, a company that started in the 1900s.

Regarding my outfit, I am having a serious broderie anglaise mania this summer! I have tried keeping in place gladiator sandals using fashion tape (double-sided tape) which works but I do prefer I got the Stuart Weitzman ones on sale from Luisa Via Roma.

Gladiator Sandals Stuart Weitzman ( fit true to size and are super comfortable because the straps are elastic)

Yellow Mini Lock Valentino from LuisaViaRoma ( amazing in fuchsia  and in red ) I love this bag! I feel it upgrades any outfit and it fits my iPhone, a small wallet and lipstick… and that is about it..
