(Sunglasses: Celine, Dress: C/O Hush, Shoes: Castaner, Bag: & Other Stories (similar))

Having not visited Mallorca since the days of kids clubs, early morning suncream application (naturally so I could get in the pool as soon after breakfast as possible), mid-morning pool disco exercise classes and all inclusive buffets- it's safe to say it's been a while since I've visited this beautiful Balearic Island properly. With no summer holiday booked for this year and Instagram endlessly reminding me that there is in fact a world out there where the sun shines and the sea is blue, I felt incredibly excited to pack up my overnight case for a couple of nights in sunny Spain with one of my favourite lifestyle brands, Hush (as well as the lovely Lizzy (a.k.a photo taker extraordinaire), Hannah, Carlie, Jordan and Loanne). With a bag bulging full of everything from dreamy beach bags, vintage inspired carpenter denim to day-to-night dresses- I felt suitably prepared for days exploring the town and evenings near the sea.

Arriving in Mallorca, our hotel, Cala Sant Vicenç (kindly organised by Classic Collection Holidays) was a stones throw away from the clear sea- with views of the sweeping and vast mountains and woodland in view too. It felt miles away from the hubbub of Palma- but being a short bike ride away from Pollença and Port de Pollença, felt like it was close enough to the hubbub of traditional fruit markets and dock-side drinks- all whilst maintaining the peace and escape we were all looking forward to.



Seeing as it had been years since I was last here it also felt amazing rediscovering the area. With a contrast of winding back roads, traditional stone houses and bustling town squares all making up the town- with the harbour being a short drive away, it soon had me at hello all over again. With authentic traditional tapas bars and idyllic cafes like Cappuccino along the front, we were spoilt over the days we spent there- wrapping up our time with a beach side dinner at the stunning Hotel Illa d'Or- a spa hotel near the port which also happens to specialise in fine dining and some of the most beautiful views I've seen...

Although our stay was only short and sweet (but apparently long enough for me to positively burn my ankles)- I'm pretty certain I won't be leaving it as long before I return- and with the trip a mere couple of hours away- perhaps I'll be booking a summer holiday this year after all.

A huge thank you to Hush and Classic Collection for organising such a beautiful trip!

  1. Oh how I wish I could be there right now! I went to Mallorca about 4 times as a kid, but haven't been back in years - I would absolutely love to rediscover the area too! x

  14. I'm with you in having memories of Mallorca as kids clubs, blue sunscreen and taking disposable pictures of strangers (what a little weirdo I was) but this totally makes me think it might be worth a trip back. Love that striped dress btw!

  26. Mallorca looks so beautiful, wish I was so easily able to go to beautiful places like this. An unfortunate part of living in Australia is that in reality the only places so close are Australia (and I guess New Zealand). I'll just sit here in jealousy until I finally save up for the "Great Europe Trip" that I've been planning for years.

  27. It must be the best time of the year to explore Mallorca or even Spain in general - right before the summer holidays, where the crowds and families aren't there yet! It looks beautiful, the crystal clear water of the sea makes me long for a holiday getaway too!
    Both outfits you wore are really pretty, I love your nautical striped dress :)
