We had an amazing time on our SeaDream Yacht Club trip along the Costa del Sol.  This was the perfect way to see each of these destinations and experience enough that we can’t wait to go back!  I’ll be sharing all the details of the trip with you next week.  There are so many details that it’s taking me a while to write.

In the meantime, I wanted to share what I wore in Spain with you.  I shared the full packing post before we left.  You may notice there are a few things that I didn’t wear because it wasn’t quite as cool at night as I anticipated.  Otherwise, I packed perfectly!  I do like to bring one or two pieces for back ups and I’m so glad I did.

I also got a lot of questions about how large was the suitcase I took.  I always use this 26″ Hartmann 7R Spinner pictured below.  It is the same suitcase I took for 13 days in Italy.  It has a feature that almost serves as a built-in packing cube that compresses your clothing in one side. I also pack things flat and take a travel steamer.  I’ll share a post on that sometime soon.

Travel Look: Southcott Maxi Dress / Hermes Oran Sandals (similar here) / Favorite Longchamp Leather Bag available in 5 colors also seen here / Hartmann 7R Suitcase

Just like on our flight to and from Italy, I wore the Southcott maxi.  It truly feels like a nightgown which is a huge plus.  It’s my go-to pop on dress for driving morning carpool, too.

Dinner in Malaga: Misa Los Angeles Darla Dress in Provence Blue also seen here / Valentino Rockstud Espadrilles / Kayu Clutch With Mother of Pearl Clasp

This easy favorite is back in stock and also available in red. The fabric is perfect for travel as it seems to be wrinkle proof!

SeaDream Day 1 and Morning in Malaga

White Southcott V-neck Tee / Blue and White Striped Maxi Skirt c/o Front Door Fashion / Staud  Handbag /Hermes Oran Sandals (similar here)

Can you spot the fun crew of the SeaDream in the background!?!?  Loved wearing this skirt to the Picasso Museum and our first day on the yacht. It was such a conversation starter!

Dinner: Modern Tunic Dress c/o Tuckernuck / Birdcage Earrings c/o / Valentino Rockstud Espadrilles / Kayu Clutch With Mother of Pearl Clasp

This classic shift dress was perfect for our first night.  I loved this persimmon color that is exclusive to Tuckernuck and perfect for fall.  I’m wearing it again today to the Bush Museum to see the First Ladies exhibit.

Dinner with Captain Lund on SeaDream 1Dinner with the Captain and new friends from Canada: White Classic Veronica Beard Dress also seen here / Gold Espadrilles Sandals / Birdcage Earrings /Kayu Clutch With Mother of Pearl Clasp

This dress is like a pair of white jeans.  Perfect for any occasion and classic.  It is one of my most worn dresses.  I take in on almost every trip and am always glad I did.  I’ve had it for over three years and Veronica Beard has made it part of their collection that remains each season.  You’ll see a version of it below in stripes.

SeaDream Day 3 – Gibraltar

Teal Bell Sleeve Top / White Mother Denim / Gigi Sandals / Givenchy Horizon Nano Tote / Changed to shorts for walking in town after it warmed up

So many questions about this great top!  I love it with white and denim.  I’ll be wearing it a lot this fall and into spring!

Dinner: Embroidered White Cotton Maxi Dress also seen here / White Dreamcatcher Earrings/ Gold Espadrille Sandals /Kayu Clutch With Mother of Pearl Clasp

A reader favorite!  Under $100 and back in stock.  Really a classic as well and so much fun to wear.

What we wore instead! Ha!  Scott threw out the idea of going to the FC Barcelona game to see Lionel Messi so how could I say no!?!?  We love watching soccer even when it’s not our daughters!

Travel home: Three Dot T-shirt Dress from Font Door Fashion / Hermes Oran Sandals (similar here) / Favorite Longchamp Leather Bag
