Stripes, Love & The Little Mermaid in Majorca

‘I’ve got gadgets and gizmos aplenty. I’ve got whozits and whatzits galore. You want thingamabobs?
I got twenty. But who cares? No big deal, I want more.– Ariel 


Swap ‘thingamabobs‘ for ‘Instagram followers‘ and those Little Mermaid lyrics are pretty much updated for 2018. Sure, it seemed like Ariel was ‘living her best life‘ under the sea, but all she really wanted was to slay all day in the sun up where ‘the people walk.’ As you can guess, my 3-year-old is really into Disney right now.
Yet, as my husband and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary last month on a family vacay in Majorca, Spain those ‘Part of Your World‘ verses popped into my head as we strolled along Puerto Portals passing super yachts and luxury cars.

One day, I want to get that in Dallas,’ said my husband gesturing at a top-of-the-line German SUV.

Uh no, I’m happy with my Ford Explorer,’ I said reeling in my Mercedes-loving Mer-Man.

After seeing the destruction of hurricanes in Texas last Fall and fires all over California the past year, overspending on ‘things‘ doesn’t hold the same appeal as it did in my 20’s. Especially when you see it can be gone in seconds. Not to dive too deep into reflection; this is a fashion blog after all. So let’s head to Majorca with a budget-friendly striped dress that can easily transition into warm Dallas nights this Fall…

The Scene – Majorca, Spain (Puerto Portals)

End of Summer Style – This striped cotton Zara dress and mesh (fish net) style bag caught my eye. Easy to throw on whether you’re headed out on a date this weekend or backyard BBQ for the last week of summer.

Heat Wave Hair We arrived to Majorca early August during a massive heat wave in Europe. Rather than fight the humidity, I opted for a messy side braid (with a few Sally Beauty Supple clip-in extensions).

Flanigans Traditions – This popular steakhouse in Majorca has been a must-see for decades if you’re visiting the island. We’ve celebrated 3 wedding anniversaries at Flanigans and have made it a ‘tradition‘ over a glass of sparkling wine to reminisce of how we first met in San Francisco. Butterflies & bubbly – always a good combo.

Big Bows – I loved the oversize bow detail and striped pattern of this dress. If it’s still feeling like summer in your city, don’t put those sundresses away just yet.

Cheers to savoring the last days of summer by land or sea.
