It’s impossible to have a bad day when you’re wearing this sunny shirt.

It’s also impossible to have a bad day in Santorini.

We spent the day walking around the island, exploring the tiny villages and popping into little boutiques to browse (and to take advantage of the air conditioning). We marveled at the view, the hilltop villages looking like snow-capped mountains and the crystal blue of the water.

And, oh, we ate. We stopped for ice cream every hour, and enjoyed a feast of grilled fish, spicy feta dips, and fresh Greek salads. We stopped for a glass of wine and a gorgeous view – twice.

Save for whipping out my camera to capture the view, we truly unplugged.

I keep trying to re-capture these moments at home. A cup of coffee and a stroll around the Central Park Reservoir, after dropping Rho off at camp, has been one way to take a mental vacation.

Another way is to shamelessly re-wear this outfit.

This shirt, the latest addition to my collection of MM.LaFleur Didion tops, is perfect for the warmer weather and for Greece. The knit is airy, the color is bold, and it has the flattering fit I’ve come to rely on regularly.

The top also paired beautifully with this skirt from Joie. The subtle print and the gold threads pair perfectly with this top, and the tiered ruffles flatter my legs and bum.

Bonus – you can wear it as a strapless top, which I did twice with wide-legged pants and with denim shorts.

I put these Sam Edelman flats through the ringer while on vacation, but they’re truly a perfect travel shoe. The padded sole was comfortable for wandering through cobblestoned towns, and the tan color complemented all my outfits as well as my trusty crossbody.

Coffee and walk? Check. This outfit? Check.

It may not be a carefree day in Santorini, but it comes close.

Created in partnership with MM.LaFleur, a company that I’m an investor in. I was gifted this blouse, but all opinions are my own.

Well, that was quick.
