My look for a dinner party yesterday consisted of only three items: a jumpsuit, sandals and a tiny bracelet. Sometimes simplicity really just does the trick! The black, low-cut, strappy jumpsuit is one of many new, highstreet bargains. It's simple, elegant and easy to dress up or down according to occasion - love it! The bright yellow sandals and turquoise wristlets bring a pop of color for a more Summer-y feeling.

See you soon! Kisses

Jumpsuit - Zara, sandals - Balenciaga, wristlet - Anni Lu.

A little peek into my holiday-wardrobe (minus the bathroom essentials though). I have packed both black and colofull pieces as well as flats and heels. I'd say I'm fully guarded for whatever occasion I might be thrown into! My dear friend Leonora has finally accompanied me here in Puerto de Andratx and I'm looking forward to spending the next week with her. I hope you are all enjoying yourself whether you're on vacation or not.

See you soon! Kisses

Purple, green and orange printed halter bikini from Missoni.

Ruffled, striped bikini from Blumarine.

A pretty bikini is essential for Summer! I have a few to change between, my favorites are the ones pictured above. When it comes to swimwear it's fun to go all out in print, colors and detailing with statement bikinis or swimsuits. Good quality swimwear lasts me more than just one season, like the Blumarine bikini I've been loving for years now! If you're in pools just remember to rinse the swimwear with fresh water after a dip, as the chlorine bleaches and damages swimwear.

Pictures 3, 4 & 5) Caravelle café on Carrer del Pintor Fortuny 31.

Some Barcelona recommendations for those interesed... Two places that I really liked in the El Raval area of Barcelona were these. The store LANTOKI, not so much for the clothes they sell, but for the super cool, raw decorating-style and atmosphere. The café Caravelle was one of my favorites! I had the best breakfast - shakshuka, coffee and coconut bread! The atmosphere is really nice, very hipster-y, but the staff were super, super sweet.

See you soon! Kisses

SUMMER JEWELLERY

26-07-2014

IMG_2383IMG_2373

I sometimes feel my wardrobe on vacation is rather limited as everything in my closet clearly can't fit into a suitcase. An easy way to spice up my wardrobe when travelling, making it more exciting and fit for all different occasions is jewellry in all shapes and sizes! Chunky statement pieces for a night out, delicate golden jewelry for everyday use, or colorful, dangly pieces for that easy, bohemian holiday-atmosphere. I have brought tons of jewellry with me to Port D'Andratx this year - can't wait to touch up my outfits with these pieces!

See you soon! Kisses

Part one of my beach essentials are...

1) Good magazines, here Cover, Costume and Vogue. 2) Music - iPod/phone and my white headphones from Urbanears. 3) Good reads -  here HAN by Eva Tind and Beethoven Was One Sixteenth Black by Nadine Gordimer (Actually I didn't love neither of these when I got to read them so no recommendation from here) 4) Notebooks for doodles etc. 5) Lipbalm and hand lotion. 6) A sunhat for some much needed shade. This one is Zadig & Voltaire.

What are some of your beach essentials?

See you soon! Kisses

Yay, I'm back on the blog for good this time. I had an amazing trip to Spain! Spent the last days in beautiful Barcelona where I did some highstreet shopping that I can't wait to show you. More about the trip later though! A big thanks to sweet Benedicte who guest blogged for me while I was gone - she did such a great job, don't you think?

Anyway, I just wanted to check in and say hi - I missed you guys! But I have a lot more up my sleep - outfits, travel-pictures, new ins etc. Also I'm going to Mallorca this Friday where I'll be blogging as well! Stay tuned!

See you soon, kisses - Maja
