FOR THE HOME: final touches on the deck

Even though I’ve considered out deck “done” since the beginning of Summer (when I last shared some impressions) there is always room for a little improvement, right? Over the years, I’ve found lots of amazing pieces for our home, thanks to the sales on Westwing (ie. all of the pillows in our apartment …). Recently, my favorite destination for online-interior shopping launched their new ready-to-shop site called WestwingNow – which will basically be the death of me (or actually my bank account). And obviously I was successful there when looking for an addition to our deck. So without further ado, please welcome home the “Mailand” chair, which doesn’t only look stylish, but is also super comfortable and the perfect final touch to our seating area. I also got a pretty lantern for our table and decided to adopt our friends tomato plants since he is gone so much on business travel. Finally, I think I am done (for now). How do you guys like it?

my 5 best buys this Summer.

This year, for this first time in a while, I’ve made it a point to put together a list of items I wanted for Summer. Since then, I’ve done a fairly good job at buying those items, and I have to say, I’ve made some pretty darn good purchases! While I try not to wear the same outfit for days in a row, I have no problem with wearing certain things over and over again, just styling them differently. This has definitely been the case with lots of pieces I recently bought, which is why I wanted to share my personal Summer must-haves and 5 best buys of the season with you guys today.

CRAVINGS: sweet summer song

After a super rainy Summer last year, we’ve been blessed with quite some sunshine so far this year. As a Summer child, I couldn’t be happier. Even though 35°C is pushing it, I would much rather be sweating than wearing sweaters during Summer. Inspired by lots of sunshine and tropical vibes, I leave you guys with today’s cravings while I am off to catch the last bit of sun. Oh sweet Summer song!

CRAVINGS: ocean breeze

It’s been a while, since I’ve dipped my feet into salt water and I cannot wait to head down towards Croatia in a few days for some sunshine and relaxation. Inspired by hues of white and blue, fresh fish from the sea and driving south with the wind in my hair, I’ve put together a set of (late night) Sunday cravings. The best part? Almost everything on my list is currently on sale and I am seriously loving that beach towel by Temperley London – paired with those Schutz sandals  ♥ What’s your favorite thing on the list?
