Recently, it was exciting to encounter the vibrant coastal design in Mallorca, Spain. From the hotel where we stayed to the local island shopping!
Each Sunday I share my top five favorite things along with my friends, Cindy and Annie. So when traveling (like in Spain now), it makes sense that where I am at the time influences cool things on my radar.
1. Rialto Living Store For Coastal Design in Mallorca
Rialto Living is an elegant retailer offering high-end clothing for men and women, home furnishings, gifts, and an airy cafe (Howard loved his cappuccino there). There are so many fun rooms to wander through each with distinct styles and colors.
2. Jacques Grange Designed Hotel
This is where breakfast was served each morning.
3. Crisp Cotton Poplin Dress — Nice for Travel
I’ve been wearing the Bettina Tiered Shirt Dress by Anthropologie often on the trip as it washes so well and doesn’t need ironing. There are other colors. This is a regular small so it’s a bit longer than a petite would be. The Eileen Fisher sandals are sturdy for cobblestones.
4. Great Leathergoods From Quince
Speaking of good for travel, these are the only two bags that I brought on this 2.5-week trip and they still look fresh after a lot of use (my hair is a different story). Very well made. The reasonably priced Quince Leather Shopper Tote is roomy (comes in three colors) and holds my computer. The Crossbody Quilted Bag (made in Italy) is perfect for running around.
5. Zara Home
You probably know that Zara is a Spanish brand. In Spain, the stores are especially nicely merchandised.
Louisa LOVED the Zara kitchen (I hope I can find it in the USA). The espresso machine was especially cute.
