CRAVINGS: its all in the details

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?

CRAVINGS: summer swim

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!

FOR THE HOME: al fresco dining

While Mike has been gone on a boys’ trip to Ibiza for the past 5 days, I took the opportunity to get a few things from my personal to-do list done, including a little table for dining up on the deck. We’ve had a lounge area for the past 2 years, which comes with a “coffee table”, but it was simply too unpractical for eating. For this summer, I actually want us to be able to sit down at a table for some al fresco dining. So as soon as the boys were gone I headed to IKEA the next day and found the perfect little (folding) table that sits 4 – or maybe 6 if we all cuddle – and can easily be folded away when we’d rather use the space for dancing, tanning, … I am beyond happy with the outcome and can’t wait for lots of amazing meals outdoors.
