When I left for a week’s holiday in Spain, this was my travel outfit. Flat comfortable shoes, a stretchy blue/white striped capri and a white jacket + top (by Irie Wash). You saw the jacket before in this post. Nothing pinches and layers for temperature differences. Fortunately it was rather warm when we left The Netherlands. We were quite mean as we took all that warmth with us to Javea in Spain. LOL
What was the holiday like?? Well: 30 degrees Celcius, beach with some wind, swimming pool, shopping and 4 girlfriends to laugh with till after midnight. You will see some holiday shots at the end of the post.
Before I went, I visited friend and neighbour Anja who took my outfit photos in her garden. She blogs about her travels to Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, Korea, India etc. (Curly Traveller).
Below: Anja the Curly Traveller.Below: the first thing I always do before a photo shoot in Anja’s garden, is removing all the weeds growing between the bricks… Needless to say Anja captured that. The background is Anja’s garden shed which she decorated herself. I am sorry about the moiré look of the trousers. I could not get rid of it in Lightroom.Below: the trousers are slightly distressed and striped. You have seen them before with an orange shirt.Below: while I was killing the weed I discovered a bamboo shoot… Which had to be removed. In my opinion. It didn’t give in that easy.Below: we tried a different background. Anja loves things like little flamingos (the pink and grey ones at the bottom) and the candle holder in the shape of a cat.Below: Close-up of the top which I am wearing underneath the jacket. Also by Irie Wash. It has little silver balls stuck on it. Quite interesting to see how long they will stay there….Below: now for some holiday snapshots. First photo…. the gang. We celebrated our 25th anniversary as friends. (Unfortunately the 6th friend couldn’t come.) Below: this is how they tease me when I am asking for a good photograph…Below: strolling along the boulevard of our beach (3 minutes walk from the appartment).Below: the swimming pool of the appartment complex. The four of them are right in the middle of the pool, waving at me (standing on the balcony).Below: this photo was taken at the airport when we left. This is about the nicest my hair can be. Wish it would look like that all the time.Lovely holiday. Not one single irritation or wrong word. Only laughing, talking, shopping, sun bathing, eating and cocktails.
