Dress: Rivka Zerbib
Israel, my beautiful country you are so charming. Every time I step my foot on another piece of land I have never stepped on before I get this great feeling of excitement. I try to get out and explore places I have never seen as much as I can, the history, the architecture and the stories behind are simply fascinating and are literally around every corner. I also love taking my kids back to the places I loved visiting as a kid myself. It is easy to fall into an ordinary routine and then when we feel the need to “get away” we escape to another country but the truth is, we forget that just a step away we have so much to discover and so many places in our own country we have never seen.
It isn’t only about far distant destinations but also about the places we walk by every day and don’t take a second to stop and pay attention to. Just the other day I discovered a restaurant in the middle of Jerusalem, the food was amazing and I asked the waitress if they are new in the area, she replied “we are here since 1967” I sighed, I literally past by this place hundreds of times, how could I have not seen it?!
I hope I will never be left with that sense of missed opportunity, It’s simple I know, but seeing and doing things out of the ordinary every day is something very special. It’s fun, exciting and most of all it’s enjoyable.
I loved visiting Caesarea for the first time, it is a small city off the sea with a great story behind the old arches and from my short visit I loved the oriental vibe on the boardwalk and the charming old fashioned fishing boats docked at the small port.
This dress was perfect for a stroll on the beach at sunset, it can easily be taken from day to night with literally zero effort, I can’t wait for the temperatures to drop so I can begin layering all of my favorite dresses.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by! RZ
