Hi again! So by now you probably know that I’m heading to España to spend every minute of my summer vacation with the BF! I may or may not have been plotting this vacation ever since he mentioned taking a job there… knowing I could spend some serious time on the beach with him in Spain certainly helped me be more supportive of his move – just being honest.
The weather in Alicante is HOT, like 90+ degrees-every-day hot… similar to what we have here in Chapel Hill at the moment but without all of the humidity. It’s been a while since I’ve had a good hair day so the lack of humidity will be welcomed. In addition to looking forward to good hair days, I’m excited about what I will be wearing: jumpers, summer dresses, espadrilles and comfy lounge clothing.
Here’s my new LBJ (little black jumper).
I had to have it majorly tailored since my short torso made the top half look all sorts of wrong. $9 later, it fits like a gem.
To go with the LBJ, I have these new cuties.
I heart platform wedges because they’re deceivingly comfortable and make your legs look loooooooong. The espadrilles will show of my runner’s calves, too. <3
For dinners out I got these palazzo pants. They’re the most comfortable thing I own. Elastic waistband = I can fill up on all the paella I want and not think twice about it!
Rob sent me this cute dress after I drooled over it on my style page . It’ll be perfect for the hot weather, too!
I obviously am loving horizontal striped dresses this season! This is going in the suitcase too, along with my over-the-top CC Skye necklace.
I’m still on the hunt for a new bathing suit and am running out of time! I have a Billabong suit but want one that’s a little more fashion-forward for when I’m not trying to look like I know how to surf…
Well, that’s all I got for fashion as of right now. I hope to do some shopping while I’m in Spain too. The less I pack, the more room I have for new purchases to come home with!
I’ll be back in a bit with the amazing dinner I made last night!
