An afternoon walk in Palma de Mallorca amongst the city’s cobbled streets, sherbet coloured walls, pretty balconies and contrasting shutters called for a simple outfit. Hello denims.
Denims are my staple and I probably wear them 60% of the time. I find them comfortable, versatile and no fuss. They’re the “easy going” item that can be made up or dressed down and are always included in my travel wardrobe, coming in very handy when you find yourself exploring a beautiful city such as Palma.
Each season comes with its own styles, colours and details and so a pair of denims is not usually an investment item for me – I prefer to buy the high street versions from Zara and H&M, mostly so don’t feel too bad at the end of the season when the new styles take my fancy.
Summer has brought with it the shorter ankle grazer with frayed edges and torn knees (the I-don’t-really-care-look!) and while I’m sure this won’t last for too much longer, I love that it screams suuuuuummer, especially in this lighter blue.
A simple tee and denims however deserves a lot of accessorizing, in fact I think more is more. Scarf, ring, bangles, sunglasses, handbag, flats with details (aren’t these ones super cute?) and you’re set to go. Tell me what you think – I’d love to hear.
P.S I use a light scarf often, it not only adds a little glamour to an outfit but can come in handy to wrap around your shoulders if the temperature changes or is great to use as a mini-blanket if you find yourself wanting to sit on a patch of grass (yup, I have done this loads of times!)
