Tarifa-Spain-beach-Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill22

This past Sunday, we took a little day trip to Tarifa, to celebrate our friend Jami’s Birthday. It was about a two hour drive from Malaga, so we got up bright and early to beat the crowds and spent some quiet time on one of the nearby beaches. We soaked up the sun, applied massive amounts of sunscreen, ate more tapas and sipped cold beers. After a few hours, we drove back into the old part of town, which was just beautiful. The streets are narrow and winding and the views surrounding the town are incredible. It’s one of the ports where you can catch a ferry to Africa, which is also pretty neat.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…

This whole trip, I let my hair air-dry, constantly wore my sunglasses (but that’s nothing new) and wore no makeup, except for the occasional swipe of mascara and a peachy lip color. I lived in my bathing suit and constantly had sand in my hair, but it felt pretty great to just be au natural and not worry about anything else. Sunday was no different for the most part, but I knew Tarifa was a special place and we were celebrating so I felt like slipping on something a little more dressy than just my usual shorts and tee. I had packed this dress hoping to wear it at least once, and it turned out to be the perfect piece to slip on to enjoy the second half of our day. I definitely had beach hair, which was still drying in these photos, so I wore my new favorite Panama hat and a bright lip for a pop of color.

Saturday, Andi and I took the train into the city of Malaga and did a little exploring. We visited the big market there, where I bought some great spices, and we sampled some of the local fare at one of the tapas stands. We made the obligatory trip to Zara, where I picked up a few things, and then we sat and chatted over more tapas and wine. Here in Spain, it is expected to sit down every few hours, eat a tapa or two, drink a glass of wine and chat before heading back out again. Oh, and naps. Naps are big here. I’m a big fan of that part – well everything, really. All and all, the day was a success, and I loved having some catch up time with this one. She’s pretty great. :) xo

My dear friend, Andi and I have a girlie moment on the beach. Thank you, Casey, for taking these photos, for having patience and always finding the humor in things. Love you. xo

Hola from Spain! How was everyone’s weekend? Ours was pretty fantastic. We spent time on various beaches in Benalmadena and Tarifa, explored nearby towns, and indulged in more than our fair share of tapas and vino blanco. I can’t believe how fast this trip has flown by and that it’s already Monday. We head out Wednesday morning, so today and tomorrow will be spent reading on our local beach, taking nap breaks and sampling more of the amazing food this country has to offer. I have to say, being from Seattle, where fish is very fresh and abundant, I can be somewhat snobby about my seafood. But the amount of fresh shrimp, prawns, mussels and clams we’ve experienced so far is pretty impressive. I really love it here. xo

Hey you guys!  I’m still in Spain and enjoying every second. I have been taking pictures like crazy and am planning on doing a round up of everything soon, but wanted to pop up a few photos from yesterday of the homemade paella our Spanish friends made for us. It was amazing – packed with mussels, prawns, calamari, clams and pieces of fish. It really was a treat to have it prepared specially for us and with a homemade recipe that has been been passed down through generations.

Can you believe we’ve already been here for almost a week? We fly back on Wednesday, which seems to be approaching way too quickly, so instead I’m not going to think about it and instead live in the moment and really enjoy the rest of my time here. I hope you all have a fantastic Friday and keep following me on Instagram, where I will be posting more photos throughout the weekend. Love to you all! xo

P.S. My jumpsuit is from Forever 21 and my sunglasses are by Saint Laurent.

Hello and happy Monday! I know I usually put up an “Over the Weekend” post on Mondays, but this weekend was spent packing and getting ready for our trip to Spain, so there wasn’t anything too interesting to photograph. Instead, I want to share these two photos of Malaga, taken by my friend Andi, who is living there for the summer, and who we will be staying with for the next ten days! I can’t wait to spend time at the beach, eat good food and explore this beautiful little beach town.

Hi y’all! (Yes, I am feeling very southern right now.) So, we’ve been in Nashville only a day and have already experienced great food and drinks at The Farm House, The Southern, Patterson House and Rolf & Daughters. Needless to say, it was a fantastic introduction into the bar and restaurant scene. It was a scorcher yesterday so this flowy maxi was a perfect choice for the 90-degree weather we were experiencing.

Today, we are hoping to check out Edgehill Cafe and the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, then eat dinner and maybe  go bowling at Pinewood Social. Afterward, I am hoping to hear some live music at either the Listening Room or The Bluebird Cafe. I can’t wait and hope to get some great photos this weekend.xo

Hey y’all! I’m very excited to share that I am flying to Nashville today with my dear friends, Keiko, Helena, Lauren and Amanda! I am so excited for this long weekend away with these girls and can’t wait to take in the food, sights and of course, the music. We are renting a cute little house and have a great itinerary lined up thanks to the amazing Lauren. And lucky for us, Keiko has been there a bunch (her adorable cousins live there) and knows her way around, so I know we are good hands. However, that said, if you know of any hidden gems or amazing spots that we must go to,  please share!

I can’t wait to report back, but until then, follow me on Instagram – I will be posting up a storm! :)

P.S. I happen to be a huge fan of the show Nashville as well as country music fan, so this is going to be HEAVEN for me. :)

Spent the day yesterday walking around the Marais and stopped off to admire the Place des Vosges, which is one of my favorite spots in Paris. Afterward I grabbed brunch at Les Philosophes, then spent the afternoon reading and getting some work done at a nearby cafe. I leave tonight to fly back to New York, which is always bittersweet for me when Paris is involved, but I feel so refreshed, inspired and ready to take on the holidays and new beginnings. Hope this week has been a happy and productive for everyone so far! xo
