Salty hair

Fashion,Travel,23 February 2019

We have arrived in heaven; sun, sea and peace and quiet. We happen to live at a resort with a middle age over 65 which suits us very well, because we seem to have the same interests. We went to bed early and I woke up to watch the sunrise. We’re not in a rush to do anything or go anywhere because we already know we’ll get everything we came here to do done. I enjoy every minute of undisturbed working, answering emails at the breakfast table and full nights of sleep. Work to me is sometimes the perfect getaway where I get to concentrate fully on one thing at a time and therefore my brain gets a break and after being home with the kids for a week, this is much welcomed.

Yesterday we walked down to the beach and I found the biggest and most beautiful seashells. I felt like a child when hunting for one treasure after another to bring home to my children. I almost went for a dip, or at least half of my body did more or less voluntarily.

Today, we’re going for a power walk and after that pack up and shoot a couple campaigns. I’ve only been here in Marbella once before, therefore I’d love to hear from you if you have any restaurant recommendations and other must-sees? We’re staying in the old town which seems charismatic and cozy. I wasn’t that found of Puerto Banus when I was here the last time, so if you know some other places to visit, I’d love to know.

Second round love

Fashion,21 February 2019

Don’t give up on me. I will soon (aka tomorrow) bombard you with sunny, colorful and inspiring pictures of palm trees, sunsets, turquoise pools and sandy but cheeks (ok maybe not) but for now, it doesn’t get any more interesting than this very shocking outfit.:Midnight blue slip skirt with my favorite patent leather boots. No, not interesting enough? I know, but at least I really made an effort. It was slippery as hell and all I wanted was to go home and not return until spring.

Anyhow, now when it’s time to wave goodbye to these slushy pictures with 50 shades of grey in the background I want to thank my materialistic pick-me-up of the season; my vintage saddle bag from Dior. I have worn it repeatedly ever since I bought it and I love it more than I ever thought I could love something so unpractical. Vintage shopping is something I really want to support and do more of, therefore I always check my favorite vintage sites first. It’s not only much more environmentally friendly, but it’s way better for my wallet and I love carrying pieces with a story. All my vintage pieces feel more special because they come with a past and I get to take them for a few more spins.
