What better way to kick off the New Year – than with a brand new fashion post for 2019! HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!

It’s summer here in Sydney but that doesn’t mean you have to limit your wardrobe to dresses and skirts, you can definitely wear jeans too! There are always those in between (cooler) days when it’s not super humid, scorching hot and the weather is the perfect temp to rock a summer denim look.

I personally love wearing jeans all year round even in summer. How cute is it to wear jeans with summery style tops (my fav look)?! I love this casual, fun and feminine look for the warmer months – a dressy cami top paired with denim jeans. This style is a great day to night look and you can add different accessories to dress it up or down.

BARCELONA

Barcelona is one of my favourite places in Spain. I love the this vibrant and colourful city, it is rich in culture, arts, delicious food and history. There are many famous architectural landmarks and attractions to visit, as well as some hip and happening neighbourhoods.

This was my third time visiting Barcelona, and this time I wanted to explore like a local.

When in Barcelona, you have to check out the rooftop bars and rooftop pools. Not only do you get spectacular views of the city, you also get to see Barcelona from a different perspective. After all the city does have stunning architecture and this is a great way to admire the details – and have some great cocktails too! There are two great rooftops I visited this time and can recommend: The Ohla Hotel – has the coolest see-through swimming pool and a vibrant bar. The Yurbban Passage and Yurbban Trafalgar (located on the same street) both have gorgeous views of the city with an outdoor rooftop pool – offering a very cosmopolitan vibe.

El Born and the Gothic Quarter are two areas that are part of the Old Town and a must-visit. You will find some of the most amazing restaurants and traditional tapas venues in El Born. If you have a sweet tooth like me, then walk around the Gothic Quarter and you will find an abundance of delectable chocolate and Churros stores/cafes.

I love walking through the streets, getting lost and discovering other little alleys/streets. It is a great way to see the city and take it all in. There are other amazing and happening neighbourhoods to visit in Barcelona, each offering great choices to eat, shop and wander. These are some neighbourhoods worth checking out:

◦Gracia

◦Sant Antoni

◦Born

◦Poble Nou

◦El Raval

A trip to the Spanish Island of Mallorca isn’t complete without having drinks and a swim at a rooftop pool. Or watching the sun go down and enjoying gorgeous views of Palma.

If you know me well, you know that I am obsessed with Mallorca. It’s one of my favourite Mediterranean destinations for summer. I have spent a lot of time on this Island and absolutely love the vibes and lifestyle here. The Spanish know how to live and enjoy life! You have access to the best beaches, delicious local cuisine, tapas and Spanish culture all in one destination.

Here are some of my insider travel tips for Mallorca:

Favourite Beaches on the Island:

Caló des Moro – this beach is stunning and by the far the most popular in Mallorca and in Europe. The water has the most breathtaking shades of turquoise. Pure bliss.

Cala Lombards – this beach has a small stretch of white sand and the water is also beautiful here too! Beautiful shades of blue, another great spot to swim!

Cala Agulla – is a lovely spot to snorkel and it’s surrounded by mountains. Another beautiful sandy beach with crystal clear waters and lovely shades of blue.

Favourite Tapas/Eats in Palma:

La Bodeguilla, 13%, Bar España, Es Baret, Fera Palma, Gaudeix, Abaco, Vermuteria La Rosa, Rivareno Gelato and for the best sunset spot on the island make sure you go to Sa Foradada – you will see the BEST sunset of your life!

Favourite walks:

Walk around the old town, it’s beautiful and historical with gorgeous architecture. Make sure you walk along Passeig Des Born and La Ramblas.

Favourite rooftops/pool hotels: 

Sant Francesc Hotel Singular and Nakar Hotel.

VIENNA

Vienna is a beautiful city full of charm and is also known as the Imperial city. It is famous for it’s coffee houses (Viennese coffee), historical buildings, palaces, architecture and wine taverns. Every time I come to Vienna, I am in awe of the buildings and architecture, they are elaborate and spare no detail. I feel like I am walking through a scene from a fairytale – so magical.

Schönbrunn Palace is one of the most iconic sites to visit whilst in Vienna. It is also one of my favourite spots to walk around and admire the elegance of this beautiful Palace. This Baroque style Palace was the former summer residence of the Empress Sissi. An absolutely stunning and lavish Palace with over 1441 rooms. You can also take a stroll to visit the Palace park with its stunning gardens and the famous green house known as Palmenhaus Schönbrunn. A must when in Vienna.

Blush Tones

 

Blush tones are a great way to break up the dull winter shades we’re used to. This shade of blush is the perfect way to warm your winter wardrobe palette and is so flattering on all skin tones.

This gorgeous flowy blouse is a mixture of chic yet edgy with the studded detailing. Dressed up or down it will look great with whatever you want to pair it with. A beautiful feminine and elegant blouse.
