Things are really starting to heat up here in Atlanta and with two days left until the kids are out of school, it’s hard to think about much else but SUMMER. And while I think the Nordic is an amazing place to gain inspiration most of the year for fashion, there is no better place to us than SPAIN for summer clothing. (and not just anywhere in Spain, but the Costa del Sol!)
We love the feel of the warm Mediterranean sun on our skin, the wind off the sea on our faces, and the intoxicating aroma wafting through the streets of orange blossoms and espresso. Mmmm… That is heaven!
Of course the Spaniards know a thing or two (or three or four!) about dressing for warm weather. They ditch their dark winter hues and don pure white, light and airy cottons, lace, a classic sandal, and the glamorous sun hat instead. Oh, and don’t forget the red lip & a great pair of sexy sunglasses… the timeless finishing touches to the perfect summer ensemble!
POSTCARD:: MARBELLA, SPAIN
Don’t worry! You don’t need to walk the streets of Marbella for this outfit. It’s classic and cool no matter where summer takes you this year!
