A Weekend in Zakynthos : the Essentials

It recently dawned upon me that I have nothing planned until I jet off to South Korea, in September. Not one single weekend away, nothing, rien.  Needless to say, that got me looking up cheap flights and potential holiday destinations straight away. First on my list of places I'd love to go to : Zakynthos, Greece. With its white sandy beaches, its deep blue waters and delicious seafood, the Greek island seems like the perfect summer getaway.

And while I'm day-dreaming, I might as well think of all the things I would take with me for a weekend away in this Greek paradise, don't you think?




BIKINIS, BIKINIS AND MORE BIKINIS
Obviously, duh! It might seems strange, but nothing quite gets me in the holiday spirit like a new bikini though. It doesn't matter that I already have about 20 in my wardrobe right now, I just can't resist a good bikini. I currently have my eye on this colourful little Kiini number (similar, cheaper version here) but I wouldn't mind adding to this Oysho bikini to my collection either.

PICTURE-PERFECT POOL FLOATS
Because who doesn't love a good pool float? Especially since most villas in Zakynthos are bound to come with a gorgeous outdoor pool. Of course you could go for the usual inflatable pink flamingo or pastel-colored lilos, but I personally think this avocado float is the best thing I've ever seen in a very long time. Millennials and their avocados, eh...

FUN ACCESSORIES 
I personally think holidays are the perfect opportunity to try new things and have fun with your style.  I know I try to when I go away. In fact, I currently can't get enough of pompom earrings, candy-colored sunnies and I'm just that close to treat myself to the infamous Cult Gaia Ark bag even though I have nothing planned for the foreseeable future. The only thing stopping me is that I have yet to decide which size I want - maybe I should just get both...  Ha!


What are your holiday staples? Have you got any  fun holiday plans for this summer?
