I spent the last nine days with Mike's family in Europe. We started with a relaxing beach vacation in the Algarve Coast of Portugal, where these pictures were taken. It's a very popular destination for Europeans but from my research, not many Americans visit the area, which is a shame. It was one of the most stunning places I've been and absolutely some of the best swimming. The water is so salty you can effortlessly float in the clear blue water while staring at the amazing cliffs and rock walls all around you. I kept saying the landscape felt like you were actually on a different planet, I've never seen anything like it! We spent most days on the beach but also spent one day on a boat going in and out of caves, it was truly incredible! If you get the chance, definitely go!
The weather was also perfect. Sunny and super warm during the day but then cooled off nicely at night with a great breeze. I wore this look to dinner one night and loved the way the kelly green skirt popped among the neutral landscape and bright blue water. Plus the flowy skirt was so much fun with the breeze!
