Spring Break…at last…

I’ve been looking forward to this break since Spring Break last year.  We had such an amazing time here in Fort Morgan back then that we hit the ‘Easy’ button and booked the same house this year.  As much as we like adventure in the summer, for this week in April there is something lovely and comforting about returning to the same spot.  Less organization is needed and we know exactly what we are going to get.  We leave the nerves, uncertainty and anticipation for the summer travels!

The weather hasn’t cooperated since we arrived on Saturday but my Husband and I have managed a beach run each day, and we took the kids bowling yesterday at the the peak of the storm.  To be fair they haven’t seemed to notice the rain and they’ve been hanging out with the neighbors on the beach most of the time – they were even in the sea at 7am yesterday!  Brrrrr!

Today the sun is shining and the bikini will be on!

As for getting here – here’s what I chose to wear for our 6hr drive – comfort was key.

Birkenstocks – Arizona in blue Birkoflor // Shorts – J.Crew // Sweatshirt – Target // Scarf – Gap (old)

And my outfit from my last day at work last week – I LOVED wearing this dress that I got in the sale – so comfortable, and the M&S blazer is awesome.  If you haven’t looked at Mango for a while you should – their new styling is gorgeous as is their new summer collection.

      This is the shorter version of the sleeveless jacket – there are 2 longer ones too – I have the cream on it’s way to me. I love them – they really smarten up a casual outfit in the summer. The beach is fabulous – deserted, and like fine sugar – so clean:)

    How tanned are you already? Am very jealous. Love the Mango dress on you and the sleeveless jacket. You look so good (and happy!) with your new hair – so pleased you chopped it. Hope you’re having a suitably fabulous holiday. X

      I’m sure I tan much quicker these days after 15 years here – I must have more melanin ready to go:) We’re having a wonderful time – reading, snoozing in the sun, walking on the beach – just perfect thank you xx

      I love these Mango dresses – I feel so flirty in it! Yes I am now burned after lying in the sun all day yesterday – even with SPF 50! xx

    Your smile is so much wider since you’ve had your hair cut – did you know that?

    I’m with Michelle here – love the wine glass shot! Kind of sums it all up doesn’t it! Hope the weather gets better for you as I want to see you in all your summer holiday kit!
