By this time every year after a few months of heavy winter coats, cozy scarves, thick socks and hardcore boots I’m itching to get some sun, sea and beach. May in France is full of holidays so gives the ideal time to break away and find some much-needed soleil au bord de la mer – although I don’t need any excuse to explore and travel! Our spring destination this year is Majorca, the ancient and largest island in the Balearic Islands archipelago in Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. Majorca has a long history that dates back to the Neolithic period of history, but the Phoenicians were the first to colonise the Island and then it was the Romans who founded the capital, Palma. After being conquered over the centuries and changing hands many times now the Island is part of Spain and attracts plenty of tourists and travellers with it’s beautiful coastlines, interesting history and picturesque architecture. Big blue sunny skies, long hot days, late tapas dinners, sand and sea… So what does a girl pack for such a holiday?
Well, I’ve done a little bit of wardrobe prepping and this is what is inspiring me. Sheer textures, white and blue hues, light denim cover-ups, flowing dresses and colourful, scarves and bold accessories – textbook style for a Mediterranean island get-away and bang on-trend for summer 2015. Be sure to catch my ‘Summer capsule wardrobe’ and ‘The Art of Packing with Louis Vuitton’ – both up on the blog soon, plus follow me @labellecrush to glimpse what I’ll be wearing day by day and join me on my travels around Majorca!
