What do you picture when you think of a Greek Goddess? Do you see large, white statues made of marble? Or strong and serene women sitting amongst the clouds? I envision long flowing garments, caught in the wind. It is with this in mind that I began packing for our most recent trip to Athens. I looked to the Greek goddesses themselves for inspiration.
When speaking of Athens, I still smile broadly. It was such an unexpected treasure and quickly shot to one of my top 5 most favorite destinations. When packing for Athens, we were able to leave our winter coats and clothes behind in favor of milder weather. In late November, Athens was warm enough to forgo boots and heavy coats, but cool enough to be comfortable walking around in all day. The constant sunshine was an added bonus to this magnificent trip.
Getting back to Greek goddess inspired fashion, we walked the same steps as the goddesses were said to have walked. Putting myself in that mindset, I picture graceful movements up and down the steps of the Parthenon; long flowing garments that offer ease of movement and ripple with the wind. The dress I had purchased for traveling through Saudi Arabia was perfect. It flowed, it was comfortable and light-weight, and it felt very Grecian.
While I wasn’t a goddess looking down upon the people of Greece, experiencing the Parthenon first hand sure felt special. The dress didn’t hurt, either. 🙂
Until next time…
