Blue is the Warmest Colour

Stepping out of my black and white monochromatic comfort zone, I walked out for wanders along the coast line top-to-toe in the colour blue! This little outfit of the day was comfy, and the flannel meant a layer that was easy to remove when in the warm sun, but hit with a puff of ocean air and it could be back around my shoulders quickly.I even committed to a little pair of space-buns atop my head. And ignoring the miley-esque connotations, they are one of my favourite styles for hot weather adventures!Navy blue isn’t as harsh as the common choice of black. The cut is slightly cropped, high neck and channeling that oh-so-popular 90’s kid vibe that we’ve seen all over highstreet shops. The belt pulls the colour from the top piece, to the bottom and brings the two clothing pieces together as it bridges the literal gap of the midriff.Slightly oversized denim levis make for a more comfortable alternative to the extra-tight high waisted style.Featuring lots of pouting, but when on holiday and in this much sun, you can’t help but be happy! In this case, in this weather, how could you be blue?

A Breakfast and March Break

I break for breakfast. My ultimate favourite meal of any day, and so regardless of how early I am forced to get up, the morning will be made better with breakfast! Just last week, after returning from a whole seven days in Portugal, I made a 12 hour turn around and arrived back at the airport before 6am in order to catch a flight to the sunny island of Tenerife.

And, for only moaning a little bit about how tired I was, I was rewarded with tasty coffee and eats!Cappuccino’s and healthy(ish) foods consumed, we hopped on our plane and spent the flight reading and catching up on television shows we save to watch together.

The taxi to the hotel, from the airport, only took about 25 minutes. Our hotel was the Sol Princesa Dacil, found on the South of the island and in the vicinity of Los Cristianos. (I found out over the next few days that it was a considerable stretch further along the beach front from where I had stayed just over a year ago.) Dan was amazing and had booked everything in advance, and that meant an amazing deal! Our room had a separate living area with television and sofa. The space quickly became the place to dump luggage and clothes and anything we acquired throughout the day of investigating the seafront stores etc. The best part meant that the bedroom space stayed really uncluttered and meant it was a really nice room to fall asleep and wake up in!The room was made up as two separate single beds and meant we had to make shift it into a double by pulling back the main sheets and layering the huge fleece comforters, found in the closet, across the two mattresses, before remaking it to bind them together. It ended up working better than it sounds, but would have probably been a ridiculous spectacle to watch!After settling in our room a little, it was only a little past mid-day, so a change out of airplane/travel clothes and into more sun appropriate attire! It was the nicest feeling to be standing in shorts (or in this case a skort) and feel the humid warmth of the air through the balcony doors, let alone once we started walking to the beachfront strip!

Being the paranoid, overly-cautious creature that I am, you will always find my face and neck slathered in sun lotion, and probably with a hat on my head or stashed away on my person, just in case. The outfit ended up being the lovely safe colour scheme of monochromatic – but still tropical friendly – with a statement palm leaf print of the geometric cut skort.Β Regardless of being cautious, the sunshine and the warm makes me a very happy bean! I was still very sleepy, and so the main priority was getting our bearings and filling our bellies with grub!
