Porto Moniz Madeira Lava Pools
Welcome back to Travel Tuesday! We’re thoroughly infected with the Travel Bug at Raymond Lee Jewelers, and our globe trotting adventures don’t end with all of the jewelry shows we attend. When wanderlust kicks in, and our minds start to drift, here’s a sampling of Where we’ve gone/what we’ll Wear.
Where: Today, we’re basking in the pools of Porto Moniz on the northwest coast of Madeira, Portugal. Surrounded by naturally formed lava rock, these saltwater pools are filled by each fresh high tide with the crystal blue waters of the surrounding ocean. You’ll find us taking a dip in the brisk waters (the volcanic warmth has long vanished) then sunning & toasting ourselves on a colorful Missoni towel.
Wear: A fabulous European landmark deserves a fabulous European designer, and this Athena Procopiou Printed cotton and silk-blend kaftan doesn’t disappoint! We love the watercolor hues and think it pairs perfectly with our vintage Blue Topaz & yellow gold earrings. Of course, an equally lovely swimsuit is a necessity, and this Miu Miu Bikini is just the ticket. Granted, we do love to over-accessorize, and baring it in this itty-bitty two piece has our wrists begging for some bling, and there’s no better answer than stacks of Cartier Love Bangles – with coordinated gold sandals, of course.
