Dreaming of Dubai | playful in Zaful

Traveling has always filled me with a sense of wanderlust, and content, ever since I was young. I started traveling when I was only a few months old, and since then my love for exploring the world has only grown. It’s been over 15 years since that first trip, in which I’ve grown, developed, and had the opportunity to see more of the world. From my time traveling, I’ve created countless memories, and souvenirs. But I’ve also caught a travel bug that’s only subdued by dreaming of vacations and creating endless travel lists. The destinations are everywhere, near, and far. They’re all unique in their own ways, but similar in their beauty. I’ve filled my lists with dozens of them and mentally ranked them in order. A long time number one? The city of Dubai. A place that appealed to me since I was young and that only became more admired as time went on, I knew it was somewhere that I had to visit. And so it was.

As some of you might know, it was recently my sixteenth birthday. It was a memorable event for me, but something even more memorable was this trip, a birthday surprise. My parents planned the trip months in advance and scheduled it so that it coincided with a school break, and the days following my birthday. It was one of the most beautiful gifts I’ve ever received, and one that I hope to never forget.













One of my favorite things about the trip was staying at the paradisiacal Atlantis Hotel, which is where these photos were shot. It was a beautiful backdrop for my holiday shots, and also for this particular look. A romper, sandals, and simple accessories. That’s essentially what this look was. But, it was also playful, cute, and fun. The playsuit was by far my favorite part! Not only because I’m a big fan of playsuits in general, but also because this one was too adorable to pass up! The stripes, detailing on the back, and super flattering cut were what drew me to it, but once I wore it, I seemed to love it even more! The only problem? It’s too cold in Belgium to wear it! Needless to say, I’ll definitely be taking it with me to my next beach destination! Thankfully, that will only be in  a few months. Lots of love.

XOXO, Sofia
