PALMS AND FRECKLES

Pictures by James Chardon

SEA, SUN AND CHANEL FLATS During our stay in Spain, and more precisely in Barcelona, we absolutelyhad to squeez in some time to go to the beach. And even though it was totally unexpected, it was so worth it. Let me explain to you what happened. Since summer arrived in Switzerland so late, I even kind fo forgot the actual meaning of the word ”beach” and existence of bikinis… So when we arrived in Barcelona, and when I saw all my pals posting pictures of the playa and that I realised ”darn! I didn’t take any sun screen or swimming suit with me”, you can’t even imagine how frustrated and stupid I felt.

The only flat shoes I had taken with me were my Chanel ballerinas, totally new ones. Could never go and ruin them at the beach. We couldn’t skip that option though and that’s how we went strolling around, bare feet (burning like hell feet) at the Platja Bogatell in our shorts and tops while everybody was in their little bikinis (or nothing at all actually, I mean I’ve never seen that many topless girl getting there tan in one place, you go spanish chicas!). Next time, I’ll have my flip flops ready or rush to any tourist shop to get some! Word.

wow! you look so lovely :)

I could understand your frustration – it would be so annoying to miss out on something like this while all your friends were having a blast! Glad you improvised in the end. :)

Love the photos, your outfit & the atmosphere are incredible.

Gorgeous outfit – I definitely agree that flats are a lifesaver when travelling. Sometime shopping and sightseeing is best done without heels.

love your blazer so much, so cool! xx

WOW! You look super cute on the first picture with that semi-wild semi-tidy hairstyle.

@James : No, I am not hitting on her. Actually it’s a compliment for you for such a beautiful picture ;)

The mango blazer is great. It suits you. I like these shades of blue.

Enjoy!

Aw, that’s too bad about the swimsuit! I’ve had so many instances lately where I’ve had the opportunity to swim in a heated pool (my apartment complex doesn’t have a pool) and I didn’t bring anything to wear. It really does suck. But you look gorgeous in your outfit on the beach! :)

Les photos sont magnifiques comme toujours. Vous faites vraiment une superbe équipe toi et James. :) Dire qu’on a le même âge, c’est fou parce qu’en regardant ton blog, je suis comme une petite fille devant genre “moi aussi je voudrais être comme ça quand je serais grande *.*, belle, intelligente et sûre de moi” Ahah non mais vraiment bravo à vous deux et longue vie au blooog et peut-être qu’un jour je vous croiserais sur Lausanne en pleins shooting. ;P

I know the feeling. Its very frustrating when you want to go to the beach but you’re unprepared. Everything screams beach. kkkk I agree with you, you can’t ruin Chanel flats at the the beach at all. It would be a crime!

Could you maybe do a hair tutorial of this relaxed bun hairdo you often have ? :)

Lovely outfit, your jacket is awesome!

Love the tie die with the bright sunlight look, a departure from your usual style (as well as James’s) but great nevertheless.

Bisous,
