Vacation Inspiration: Shades of Blue

Hammock Life

This morning, I’m thinking about turquoise waters, blue skies, and crystal clear pools. Which I took as a sign that it’s time for some vacation inspiration.

It’s been a little rainy here lately, so I’m aching for some serious sunshine and sand in between my toes. Especially now that the beach is no longer a short car ride away. Who’s with me?

I went to the beach in Spain and was very surprised to see many of the women were topless. In America, you could not do that without getting arrested.


Haha. Yeah, America is not quite as laid back about that sort of thing. Are they, Lissa. I bet the beaches in Spain were amazing.


So I just finished my yoga, currently listening to some zen music and now I see these photos and I’m ready to jump in my car and head to the beach haha! These photo were definitely relaxing to look at. Absolutely love the look of turquoise waters. I have always wanted to go to Destin, Florida. These beach there is amazing and it so beautifully crystal clear. Hopefully I can make that a for sure destination this summer!

Thanks for sharing, and have a great day 🙂

That’s so funny that you mention Destin, Keely… That is a place that Jeff and I always thought about going because it’s not that far away. From the photos I’ve seen, the water does look crystal clear and awesome.


I’ve always wanted to go to Turks and Caicos! Maybe one day!



I really want to go there too, Paige. One day, for sure.


I have been dreaming of going to Santorini and Budapest – was supposed to make my way down to Budapest this coming Sept but things aren’t looking too good! I really love the blues in the pictures of your post, so soothing (:

xx Jia,


Yes! Santorini is definitely on my list of dream vacations too, Honey & Gazelle.


Nice! 🙂


Oh my gosh, that hammock over the water just has the inexplicable summer feeling written all over it. Officially in vacation mode now.
