This is getting to be a yearly tradition

So I thought I'd share with you what I'm packing to take for my Greek holiday which starts next Sunday

Most days are spent lazing on the beach and swimming a lot, so my day wear tends to be a bikini under a tee shirt and shorts/beach skirt or a cover up. If we do a day trip I will most likely wear the same formula, as occasionally the trips involve getting on and off boats and some swimming/turtle spotting or pottering around vineyard or village etc.See photos 1-3 for daywear, which consists of 4 bikinis (I like to put a dry one on at lunchtime), 1 pair of shorts, a beach skirt, 4 tees and a cover-up. Footwear will be rubber beach flip flops.

For evenings we always wander around the town and pick a taverna to eat in and I like to put something summery and a bit dressier on (photos 4-11). I've noticed how some Greek ladies love top dress up and there are also lots of Italians who look fab and love some bling too. I have decided to take 3 dresses, 2 skirts and 4 tops. As we're going for 11 nights the plan is to wear each dress twice (maybe 3 times for #7) and each skirt twice with a different top each time.

I have a question...I'm undecided between the tops in #9 and #10. Which do you prefer?

Finally, I'm taking one cream clutch bag, and three pairs of shoes for the evening...Coral sandals, nude cage sandals and white leather flip flops as well as rubber flip flops for beach and Converse for travelling. My travel outfit is ponte pants, light sweater over tee, topped off with a denim jacket and a light scarf. Oh, and I'm taking one cardigan in case I need it at night (though doubtful as I didn't last year). A bit of jewellery is going with me too..see last photo.

It's a bit of a long post so if you've stuck with it thanks!

I'd love to hear what you think and especially about the two top choices mentioned. Thanks for looking!

ETA..I forgot to say that I made the dresses in 6 and 7, both skirts and the top in 10.
