As you guys know, I am a sucker for statement pieces, such as a good animal print or a big glitzi necklace. However, lately I’ve found myself drawn towards simpler looks and more delicate items. Knuckle rings, thin necklaces or lace bralets – this Summer I am in love with the little details. Details can be anything from really dainty jewelry, a pretty pattern, a bra peeking out from under a summery top or the perfect shade of blush pink for bag and sunnies. This week I have 2 major crush items on my cravings list: That gorgeous bra by Triumph from their collection by Helena Christensen (which will be available in Fall) and the small Antigona by Givenchy, which has seriously stolen my heart in that color. What are your summer must-haves?
The past two weeks have been beyond busy and I find myself craving a relaxed summer day, somewhere by the pool – preferably even the ocean. However, Mike and my schedule are currently super packed and there is no vacay in sight (except for a little 4-day getaway in August). So while I keep dreaming about the ocean, I had a look around some of my favorite online shops and found lots of beachy essentials that I would definitely take with me. I love that white, slightly oversized dress, which would look so good with tanned skin! And what better, than to take a dip with a cute, tropical bathing suite, like the one by Poko Pano, found via GIRISSIMA.com?
Speaking of GIRISSIMA: Have you guys entered the 2000€ giveaway yet? You can still take part until Jule 30th for a chance to win a huuuuge shopping spree!
Some of you may have already spotted my new earrings in yesterday’s outfit post. I have been obsessed with the “mise en dior” tribal earrings ever since I saw Anna wear them – she was one of the first to have them and I’ve spotted them a ton since then. The more I saw them, the more I fell in love. I know they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but I love the modern take on such a classic piece. Also, they can be worn as “normal” pearls as well, which I like. The tribal earrings have been sold out non-stop and I had basically given up on owning them any time soon. Then, this past Saturday I walked into Dior and they had one last pair left, because a girl on the waiting list never showed up to get them. Sometimes we have to get lucky, right?
I don’t know about you guys, but to me, shopping is twice as fun when you know you scored a good deal. That’s why every year I get super excited about the Net-A-Porter SALE. I love shopping at NAP, but most items are simply death for my bank account. That’s why their sale literally makes dreams come true. I scored my Stella McCartney Falabella bag at -40% last year, and also found a stunning Alexander McQueen scarf for half the original price. This year, my spending limit was super restricted as I am trying to be good with money at the moment, but none-the-less 2 beautiful new items will soon be mine. The pieces below were all seriously crave-worthy, but only the J.Crew espadrilles and gorgeous silk (sleeping) shorts made their way into my shopping cart. Did you guys score anything at the sales this year?
