paradise thy name is menorca
Menorca, island of sunshine, sandy coves, friendly people, and the craziest summer solstice traditions I've come across yet (more on that later). I was only there for two and a half days, but they were peaceful, dreamy, exciting days and they're going to be over-represented here on the blog. The water was turquoise (and cold!), I ate plums overlooking it, and only succeeded in reading two pages of my book. It was perfect.
The dress is from Boutique by Jaeger, and I wanted it as soon as I saw it, but it was definitely too expensive. I snagged it a few weeks back for 50% off but almost ended up returning it as it was enormous and made me look like a frumpy old lady (not that old ladies are inherently frumpy, but I was). Anyway, I had it taken in and the waist seam raised a bit, so all's well that ends well.
