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!
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?
As much as I love my patterns (seen HERE), there is also something special and comforting about monochrome items. I love a piece that is bold in color but simple in terms of the cut or pattern – usually because those items are the most versatile and work with a lot of other items in my closet! I was recently introduced to the brand Laurèl, which may not be my typical destination for shopping, but their monochrome pieces are definitely craving-worthy for the summer and absolutely timeless. The do lots of patterned items, but they also do the simple monochrome pieces, which I love. For example the green silk blouse would easily work with a pair of destroyed denim for a day at the beach, but also with black skinny jeans, a statement necklace and heels for the next date night. For the warmer season I always love to venture away from the typical black/gray/white scale and add a bit of color to my closet. Which of these pieces is your favorite?
