I went to Andalusia in Southern Spain with my boy on the last week of May for a short vacation and really enjoyed this trip and the fantastic weather there (blue sky, warm sun, gentle sea breeze, 26-30 degrees, no rain*). We were based in Estepona, close to Marbella, which had an amazing development in the last years as a vacation and investment destination for (wealthy) visitors from across Europe, Arabic states and America. I had fun playing in some impressive golf courses**, jogging and walking by the long seaside, visiting the area and chilling out at our hotel, a luxury, cosmopolite set, where I could sport some evening outfits without feeling a bit too much. (I definitely like to dress up :-) )
I also enjoyed visiting Tarifa, which is located in the southern stretch of Spain, just in front of Africa, and it's very different from Marbella: it attracts some surfer tribes for its windy spots and the hippy cool set for its laid-back, relaxed vibes. We also stop by the beautiful Playa de Bolonia, between the Atlantic waves, sand dunes and old Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia and sipped a chilled beer in the little chiringuitos in the beach.
My outfit for the visit to Tarifa and Playa de Bolonia was really easy: a maxi-dress and bikini by Miss Bikini, one of my favorite swimwear brand. Exceptionally (:-) ), I wore no heels but just some flip flops, this was okay for this relaxed day in Tarifa and the beach. Later, back to our resort, I styled this maxi-dress again paired with some gladiator sandals and ethnic jewels for some extra summer glam.
