Hello beautiful people, hope you’re all enjoying the summer. As we all know kids have broken up from school and it’s now the time for that relaxing holiday whether it be with the whole family, friends or just with that special someone you love. I haven’t posted in a while so I thought I might as well give you two posts in one. A lifestyle post with an inspired holiday look too. As it’s the peek season for holidays, I’m reliving my holiday in Spain and bringing you some well needed peace and tranquility with this picturesque setting. So let’s begin with the beautiful ‘Jardins de Santa Clotilde’.
With green being my favourite colour, there’s no better place to be. Not every holiday needs to be loud and hectic. We have enough of that in our lives when we are at home with reality so it’s always nice to step back and appreciate some peace and quiet. You get a real sense of history and culture exploring something beautiful as this. Plus you get to avoid masses of people! Also you don’t have to splash the cash to have some quality time with the ones you love. This garden was about a half an hour walk from where me and the other half were staying on the coast Lloret De Mar. This garden situated on the cliff tops just adds to the all that beauty. A landscape with a view!
Now on to the outfit. With all this greenery around, it made sense to channel all that nature into my look by wearing this leaf print shirt. I guess I wanted to be one with the surroundings and blend in rather than distracingt and standing out among this sea of green. To continue with this neutral look I paired up these beige shorts to compliment the green hues in the shirt. Going to the base of the outfit and down to my feet, I’ve stuck with my Gryphon sandals from Dr. Martens. Something durable and comfortable to wear when there’s a lot of walking involved. To hold all my gadgets and gizmos like that tourist I am, I’ve used this brown and beige dual textured tote bag which again ties in with the rest of the look. If you think about it, this outfit in a way emulates a plant. The dark base representing the earth and dirt where the roots are buried, as you go up we have the body of the plant made up of neutrals and at the top we have the foliage. I guess I have discovered my true identity. I’m a tree! Do you see the resemblance?
Expect to see loads of photos and a holiday video (also on YouTube) featuring an appearance or 2 of the other half. Enjoy!
