beach zen

Fashion,Outfit,Travel,30 May 2018

Good morning! Feels amazing to be back home again after our family vacation. Felt good to disconnect completely and escape. Being surrounded with others who are on vacation is so soothing and relaxing itself. Love seeing other people enjoy, but it also feels comforting to see others run after kids and barely have time to finish a conversation at the dinner table before the kids interrupt or run off. Although I’m back home I’m going to try to stay zen. Whoever said social media workers can’t take time off? My advice is to “just do it”. Nobody owes anything to anyone. It’s only healthy to be selfish now and then.

This year, we returned to Mallorca. We stayed in Alcudia, but visited Palma as well. I loved Palma, except for the fact that we almost got robbed. Although I decided to take a break from stressing about staying connected I was quite active with my camera. So, from now on there will be a ton of vacation posts coming up! I even got hubs to snap a few pictures. Vacation seem to have done all of us good ;).

This is one of my beach looks. I prefer to wear black swimwear and by adding some bold jewelry the look becomes more fun. I loved wearing this lace dress over my bikini’s as a cover-up. Perfect way to get more use out of my party dress.

Beach Wear With Marks & Spencer

Last Friday I did it, I jumped into a (in my opinion freezing) pool and took my first swim this year. It was cold, really cold but I had to do it for the sake of a good picture, right? At least that’s how my dear photographer convinced me.

I only wear black beach wear so I thought I’d stick to honesty and make a post only using black. Black is always elegant, easy and it makes me feel like it’s me wearing the color instead of the color wearing me.

This post includes everything I pack with me beach wear vice when traveling somewhere warm; a bikini, bathing suit, hat, sunglasses and cover up. You find everything at Marks & Spencer, and for those of you who crave more color there is a wide selection of models, colors and sizes to choose from.

With this post I wish you all a fabulous kick off to summer!
