Anti-aging Satin Pillowcases for Hair, Skin & Lashes

Last Summer Sunset

SS_092513_ESPANA_SummerTime_COVERLast September I was contemplating moving from SF to LA for a change of scenery and because the weather in San Francisco was ‘too cold.‘ Fast forward a year and I’m gearing up for my first winter in Switzerland. Isn’t that an icy bit of irony. But before the rain, sleet and snow sets in, we flew 90 minutes to spend our last summer’13 weekend soaking up the sun in Majorca, Spain.

Here’a my Top 4 Summer Reflections from styles to Cervezas before this blond California bear hunkers down for winter in the Swiss Alps…

1. Retro Denim Cutoffs ~ I wore these all summer! The wash screamed 90’s and I loved their high waisted Farrah Fawcett 70’s feel. Plus, they’re longer in the back so preventing an ounce of Miley Cyrus-esque overexposure. BONUS: These shorts could still be sported with booties and a long cardigan this fall.


2. Mirrored Sunglasses ~ Keep an eye out for metallic shades because they’re sticking around for next Spring & Summer, especially blue mirrored sunglasses.


3. Fitness Shoutout ~ I was spoiled with outdoor workouts in Cali like night runs in November and tennis in January. Because it randomly rains in Europe a lot I joined a gym and have to give a shout-out to Body Pump. If you want a full body workout that’s less intense than Crossfit (which I can’t handle) but seriously tones legs and thighs; see if your city has this workout.

4. Oh Shandy ~ Every country has its own version of this, but Shandy in Spain is about 3/4 ice-cold beer mixed with 1/4 Fanta Límon and I loved it! Have you heard of this drink?

    Loving your whole outfit, really nice!

    Hmm maybe…

  8. Fab pics! Spain would be an awesome place to visit. Fall has arrived in northwest Ohio. Sorry to see the summer depart so soon, but it has been a gorgeous fall so far–and I know the best is yet to come! Hugs, T.

  10. Thanks for visiting my blog! Count me as your latest fan!

    I’m super curious to know what brought you from CA to Switzerland?? I would love to go there one day, it looks so amazing. I can’t even imagine how their winters are – i’m originally from Canada and that’s bad already. I would say investing in a big hefty parka is a must… Good luck! Here on the East Coast of the US, fall has started imposing itself a little bit, but the days are still warm-ish and sunny, my favorite. Oh and that beer-fanta drink sounds amazing, i’ve never heard of anything like that, but it def feels like the elevated version of a shandy!


  11. Fabulous look, I love it! And the Shandy kind of drinks are awesome, the only way I really drink beer actually 😉 ♥

  12. So exciting Dale! ..nope, never heard of a Shandy, but I’d try it for sure:) Also, I’m a fan of Body Pump too ~ keeps things from heading south!

  13. Love your outfit! Hope you have an amazing time in Spain!

  14. I adore this look on you! And what a fun weekend getaway!

  15. I also realised the importance of cut-offs this summer.They’re so essential 🙂
    Love yours too.

  16. Very cool simple outfit! You look adorable!

  17. I love your cutoffs. The are one of the true symbols of summer for me. The temps have definitely dipped too much here for cutoffs though. It is almost time for sweaters!
