Sun, Sand, Beach

Morning Beach Stroll 1Happy Tuesday, loves! Eager to share more of my Bali adventure with you guys– fighting through the jetlag to get through editing these posts!

What I wouldn’t give to be back on Serenity Beach right now. There’s always been something about the sea that I’ve been drawn to and Serenity Beach was no exception. It was nice staying at a resort right next to the ocean–listening to the waves crashing when you woke up each morning with that hint of salt in the air. I would wake up every morning just in time for the sunrise, and then head down to the beach for a quick morning stroll.

Boho Vibes 4Happy Thursday, loves! Bringing boho back today with this gorgeous printed ruffle off-shoulder dress! I’ve been really into the off-shoulder trend lately, and I just fell completely heads over heels when I spotted this dress on the rack. This printed ruffle design gives the dress an overall bohemian vibe, perfect as a casual sundress during my Bali getaway!

Areta’s Style Secrets Abroad: Santorini

IMG_9757

Good morning–from paradise! My roommate and I had booked our fall break a couple of months ago and we wanted part I to be a getaway/retreat. We stayed at Above Blue Suites in a gorgeous suite with a private terrace! Waking up to breakfast and that view…it seemed like the rest of the world was a thousand miles away. IMG_9848

First stop: visiting the Old Port at the bottom of the Caldera cliffs in Fira! We opted to take all the steps down to the port! Felt so accomplished that we took the time to do so–and enjoyed a nice glass of white wine right next to the sea when we reached the port. IMG_9804

Next was exploring Santorini’s famous beaches! First up, the famous black beach of Perissa! The beach actually had soft black sand, which was surprising because I thought that they would be black rocks, not sand. Regardless, the view was absolutely breathtaking, and it felt like we stumbled upon the island oasis. DSCN4656
