♔ Review
The Acropolis Museum Boutique Hotel was the first hotel I stayed at when I first arrived in Greece. It is a boutique hotel that was completely renovated with an formal and romantic theme. The rooms are decorated with long curtains, chandelier ceiling lights, and antique furniture. One thing you have to be aware of with small hotels in Greece is that they will either have no elevators or a very cramped one. This hotel had no elevator so you must carry your luggage up the stairs. They offer a nice complimentary breakfast downstairs every morning. The room is a bit cramped for four people especially with the two cots but my family and I did not mind too much because we spend our entire day out and just need a bed to sleep in at night. The reception desk is open 24 hours if you need anything and you must leave your room key with the receptionist every day before you head out. They will give the room key back to you when you return, which is convenient because the key itself is heavy and bulky. The staff is polite and you may request for the internet access at the desk if they have not given it to you already on the day of your arrival. The rooms are cleaned and new towels are prepared daily.

*Note: This is not a sponsored post. This post contains content that are 100% my opinions and photos taken by me. My intention is to write about my experience and assist you on your travels. I would also like to thank the hotel for my pleasant stay. If you would like to learn about my adventures and travel guide in Athens, stay tuned!

Daisy Maxis and Tiered Tops

Photography by my mother.

The view was breathtaking up at the Temple of Poseidon. It was a last minute suggestion my mother made the night before and although it is rather far from the rest of the sites in Athens, taking the trip down to see it was worth it. This historical attraction overlooks the Aegean Sea, which makes sense because Poseidon is the god of the sea, and rests on top of a cliff. I wore a maxi skirt not realizing how windy it would be but it was nice for the pictures. It's crazy that autumn is right around the corner already so I am trying to wrap up my summer outfit posts as soon as I can. By the way, hope everyone enjoys their Labor Day weekend!

Floppy Hats and Torn Denims

Photography by my father.

As you can see, I did not get the chance to post while I was away on vacation with my family but I did post a lot on Instagram! I am now back home but feeling very jet lagged and with a cold. I had such a wonderful time and I can't wait to share all my photos. Here was one of the outfits I wore on our first full day in Athens. I chose to wear an airy top with denim shorts because the weather in Greece is hot, especially with all the site seeing we did. I ended up loosing the had that I literally just bought a few days before our trip because it flew off my head at the top of the Acropolis. Just my luck, but I ended up buying a new one.
