I’m currently on the search for the perfect honeymoon clothes. Like most women, I despise bathing suit shopping and avoid it at all costs. In fact, I think the last three bikinis I’ve bought have been purchased online from J.Crew and Victoria’s Secret, just to avoid the poor lighting and torturous mirrors at stores. I’d rather try a suit on and send it back than go through swimsuit after swimsuit at a store, ultimately choosing whichever is the lesser of the evils.
Currently on my honeymoon checklist: two new bikinis, a cute cover-up, two sundresses, a dressy yet comfortable pair of sandals and a pair of shorts (I’m not a shorts girl – but with the super heat of Greece in August, I’m trying to be realistic and caving in).
I’m starting with the swimsuits, as I know this will be the most challenging task. Victoria’s Secret currently has two great coupon codes: SPRING13 ($15 off of $100, $30 off of $150, $50 off of $200) and SWIM100 (free shipping on swimwear purchases). Just note that they’re not combinable – so you’ll just have to figure out which is the bigger discount for you, based on the estimated shipping price, etc. I ordered two suits this weekend – fingers crossed that they look halfway decent!
In the interest of time, I also started the sundress hunt. Sebastian was running late at the office (somehow I forget 6:00 really means 6:30pm in South American time!), so I popped into the boutique next door and came across a few cute pastel-colored dresses. I settled on a pale sea-foam green high-low flowing dress – a total steal at $30.
It came with a black and gold rope tie belt, which I’m still on the fence about. I think just the dress itself, with some simple gold sandals and earrings will be perfect for an August evening in Mykonos!
