The weather in France has been more fickle than ever since I returned from my holiday in Greece, and to reminisce about the beauty of the country I wanted to share with all of you what I bought while I was there! Granted it isn't a ton of things, but each of the four items was picked with care and my traveling partner was probably a bit tired of my deliberations by the end of our week because I wanted to make sure that I spent my money on the right things.
The first thing I bought was a coin purse from a shop near the square of the Acropolis. I've been looking for a good one ever since I changed my wallet system for while I'm abroad (going from one large one to two smaller ones where one is for cards/cash and one is for coins) and I finally found this one! It's small enough that I can carry it in my pocket without noticing it too much, but it's not so large that I can never fill it up. One of the things I love about using it here is that Europe is such a cash-based society, I'm always ending up with coins and using them much more frequently than I ever did in America.
While I was exploring Thira I came across this beautiful scarf. It is predominantly blue on one side and pink on the other. I've worn it a few times, but have also experimented with it as a backdrop for photographs, like in my makeup essentials post. This scarf has been the best purchase for the transition between winter and spring, and is a lot of fun to pair with a solid black dress or with something patterned.
While I was in Oia I bought these two books from Atlantis Books. On my first trip to the bookstore I bought the Collected Poems of Dylan Thomas, a classic Welsh poet. My second time I ended up buying Changing My Mind by Zadie Smith, which is a fantastic collection of essays about literature and reading literature. It's become my go-to book for when I have a spare moment, especially when waiting for the tram or the train.
