Cyprus had been on my bucket list for quite some time now (here and here). Reason being, my best friend Stella, back in Canada, is Cypriot, and I grew up across the street from her and her family, which became a second home to me. Think ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ and that was pretty much them.
I had been interested in seeing where her and her family came from, but really wanted to experience it with Stella herself. When she made the arrangements for her entire family to go on a trip there together, I jumped at the chance to meet them there.
The first thing that hit me when we arrived was that it was HOT. Like insanely, unbearably hot. And coming from Mediterranean living, this is saying something. I needed a light breezy dress to get me through long days of sightseeing, beaching, and straight to village dinners.
This pale blue chambray dress comes in the softest thin cotton fabric, with pretty one-shoulder ruffle detailing. Paired with gladiator sandals (made in Greece), and my new favourite purse / camera bag combo, I was set for a full day of exploring Cyprus. (p.s. the chambray dress is currently on major sale!)
And if you can’t tell where I’m hiding my camera, it’s in this stunning Lo & Sons Claremont purse! This camera bag is my new absolute favourite travel accessory. I am always stuffing my bulky DSLR into my bags and then have to lug around bulky purses when traveling. Now I have a stylish camera bag that doubles as my purse and I can happily tote it around it with me all day long. You can see more about their handy travel compartment camera bags here.
