Here it is, folks: My final Santorini outfit post! I thought it only fitting that I finished with the Chicwish Santorini print midi skirt that I’d been waiting all year to wear (I bought it soon after booking our holiday). As you’ll see from the photos below, the print is of the famous skyline at Oia which we photographed on a separate day at sunset – as a contrast these pictures were also taken during the golden hour, but this was our first ever photo shoot in the golden hour after sunrise.
So yes, we got up just before 7am and hoped for a clear sky and some beautiful sunlight seeping through, and that’s exactly what we got. The light was warm and glowing and so very flattering, but boy does it get bright quickly (and, therefore, less flattering). Take my advice: If you ever shoot at this time of day – move fast!
What you might notice, however (especially if you’re familiar with the view at Oia), is that the print on the front of the skirt has been reversed, but if course that’s not something you know till you get there and see the view for yourself.
BUT at the time I had no clue that it was the right way round on the back – who studies the back of a skirt?! – and it was only something I noticed when editing the photos. So I could have worn it backwards and had the print round the right way, at least… Lesson learnt!
THE PRINT ON THE FRONT OF THE SKIRT HAS BEEN REVERSED. BUT AT THE TIME I HAD NO CLUE THAT IT WAS THE RIGHT WAY ROUND ON THE BACK – WHO STUDIES THE BACK OF A SKIRT?! – IT WAS ONLY SOMETHING I NOTICED WHEN EDITING THE PHOTOS.
Anyway I just wanted to thank everyone who’s left such lovely comments about all my holiday pictures, and if you’re severely sick of them then my apologies! I did say in earlier posts that we hadn’t been on a hot summer holiday by the pool for 12 years, so I was going to make the most of it. And as I’ve said before, if you’re even vaguely considering going to Santorini, book it now. There is nothing bad to say about the place: It’s absolutely magical.
Do you have any pieces of clothing that have been made slightly wrong (incorrect spelling, upside down patterns, etc.) – do share in the comments or tweet me @notlamb if it’s easier!
