Even though I would consider myself 100% of a summer girl, I’ve recently come to realize that my summer wardrobe could use quite a bit of improvement. For some reason I find it much easier to dress for fall, winter & spring, rather than summer. The reason may be that black skinny jeans are my favorite piece of clothing EVER – and they simply don’t work for warmer months. Last week, I was on a mission to freshen up my summer attire a bit, only to find that all the stores had already switched to the new fall collections. Sure enough I walked out with a big fluffy winter jacket instead of pretty summer dresses … On a hunt for something for summer, I finally got lucky at GIRISSIMA.com and found a perfect dress by Ganni, that’ll work with espadrilles for a casual outfit, but also with heels, sparkly earrings and a nice bag for a summer date night. Plus, it can easily be paired with tights, biker boots and a leather jacket for fall (even though I still haven’t given up hope that Summer will return). Definitely went straight onto my wishlist!
When it comes to beauty/bath products I am a real sucker for anything that has the slightest hint of coconut. I love the smell and especially during Summer it instantly feels like a sunny vacation on a sandy beach. For today’s beauty talk I wanted to share 3 of my personal favorite “coco items” with you guys. As you know, I am pretty picky when it comes to trying new products as my skin is fairly sensitive (due to eczema) and I like to stick with things that work for me. However, when something smells like coconut I tend to have a hard time resisting – which is exactly how I discovered these 3 products:
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?
