I’ve never needed a holiday more in my entire life. I think October holidays are the way to go now, it drags out your summer and gives you something to look forward to when the UK is getting darker earlier, you’re leaving for work and returning in darkness, it’s foggy and cold and everyone’s miserable. I went to Llucmajor with almost my whole family for a week, and the idea was literally to just chill out and have a laugh so I didn’t wear anything particularly glam or even buy anything new for this holiday (say what??). Get ready for a week of casual outfits, although I have had the clothes for a while so I can honestly say that they’re all good quality and have stood the test of time.
Day 1: Exploring
We were the first to arrive, so I spent the first day chilling in comfy clothes while we lounged by the pool, stocked up on supermarket essentials etc (mainly gin)
- Shorts: Top Shop
- T-shirt: Tommy Hilfiger
- Sliders: Calvin Klein
- Jewellery: Tiffany & Co.
Day 2: Palma
I dressed up a bit more for Palma, it’s one of my favourite places I’ve ever been. It was definitely hot enough to wear shorts, but I’m feeling a bit fluffy after being non-committal to the gym over the last few months, so I’d rather have either my arms or legs out, not both.
I wore my favourite, comfiest trousers. Stretchy, thin but not see-through, and a plain black halter crop top since the trousers are a bit loud for some people.
- Top: Hollister
- Trousers: PLT
- Sliders: Calvin Klein (bit of a theme here)
Day 3: Family Day
I bought a few bits in Zara in Palma, so whipped on my new skirt for when my dads various siblings all turned up as I don’t see them much. I love this skirt because it’s got a raw and uneven hem, but isn’t too short and will look great with either a vest top or jumper. Versatile pieces are so my fave!
- Skirt: Zara
- Bodysuit: PLT
- Belt: Top Shop
- (Lol shoes were Clarins slippers, I told you it was a relaxing holiday)
Day 4: Dad’s 50th
The big day and the reason everyone went out to Majorca was to celebrate Johnny K’s big 5-0. (Sorry for the crop dad, can’t reveal the cringe trophy my mum made for the winners). It was a chilled day at the villa as dad was unfortunately really ill, so I stayed in comfy clothes that I could win playing table tennis in (yep, we won the league).
Now I work for a skincare brand, I’m a lot more clued up and wary about the dangers of sun exposure to our skin. As you can see, I covered up quite a bit on on most of the days. I wore my leopard print shirt when it was the hottest time of day. I bought these jeans to wear to work with a blazer, but I can barely peel myself out of them long enough to wash them if I’m honest, I absolutely love them!
- Bodysuit: PLT
- Mom jeans: ASOS
- Shirt: Zara
- Sliders: Calvin Klein (ofc)
Day 5: Goodbye’s
As my fam live in every corner of the world, we all flew home at different times. For our last night (when everyone was suffering slightly), we had a beach morning then chilled out at my Aunty’s villa for the evening.
I spent the morning in my beloved PLT bodysuits and plain black culottes, but in the evening I put on my first holiday dress. I love this dress because it’s square neck and almost crepey material, really light and fitted with peasant/boho vibes.
- Dress: NastyGal
- Sliders: … errr
We were there for a week, but the outfits I didn’t get a photo of were most likely repeats. As usual, I massively overpacked, but then continued to use the same few items again. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it though right?
As you can also see, I didn’t make a huge effort with my hair either. This holiday was a massively needed recharge from work, so I managed to get the odd photo but the majority of these are candids that my mum took. I wanted to do a LookBook (Lluc Book, lol), but I didn’t fancy staging outfit shots everyday.
One thing I’ve learned from looking back over this holiday is that…
I really need a new pair of sliders.
