Ok, so there are few things and bringing to both my holiday in Turkey and South of France.
THE STRAW HAT
It’s stylish and it protects both you and your hair from the sun, a must in warmer climates.
I’m a gold jewelry kinda girl, and in the summer I want them bigger and chunkier. The more the merrier.
TANNED LEATHER SANDALS
Black in all its glory, nothing beats a tanned foot in a brown leather sandal. For me, it just adds to that natural holiday vibe I’m always aiming for. Plus it goes well with your natural skin color.
A STRAW BAG
A straw bag is easy to carry all your beach essentials in and chic enough to bring on your dinner after the beach. It’s basically the only bag you need for your holiday, in different sizes, shapes, and colors obviously.
What do you bring on your holiday?
Last week I was back in what most people refer to the City of Love, Paris. I lived there two years ago and even though I have been back a few times since moving, it has always been for the work and only for the day. This meant seeing Paris through the taxi in between the station and the showroom. This time was different as I stayed for two days and spent the night in Paris, still for work but more time for pleasure this time.
When walking from Garde de Nord ( Yes luckily Londoners can take the train to Paris) to Marais it stroke me how beautiful the city is, I had forgotten about the Parisians buildings and how charming the city is. Funny how sometimes you need a bit of distance in able to see things clearly again.
My visit didn’t get any worse when I meet up with friends for dinner and breakfast and that I managed to squeeze in a visit to one of my favorite shop Merci, see picture above. I would really recommend this store if you are into design, my favorite department is the interior design floor. Oh, la la as you would say in France. If you interested in visiting the store but can’t go to Paris check out their online store HERE
I must also fill in that it was nice by Thursday night to come home to London and my life here, home is where your heart is. But I will always have Paris…
So I just got back from a week long holiday in Sweden. It was perfect in so many ways, first I celebrated love at a friends wedding and later I hung out with my family for days. So much love in one week.
Yet, I can’t stop thinking about this summer’s upcoming holiday plans. But my thoughts goes a bit longer than just laying on the beach or what even one might be doing on vacation. I’m thinking of my holidays in colors, outfit, and photos. It might sound a bit crazy and I can’t really explain it neither, I guess I’m a very visual person who just happened to imagine things in beautiful pictures. Right now I’m drawn to the mood, colors and looks on the picture above, exactly how I image my holiday look.
My second holiday will be in south of Turkey to hang out with my boyfriend and his family and the third one in the south of France with my parents, a place that I can almost call my second home. I’m actually so lucky to be able to travel and have so many places to call home in Europe.
I’m really feeling summer vibes today, all of you who follows me on Instagram knows I’m currently in Sweden, and let me tell you it’s 20 degrees and sun! So naturally, I’m holiday daydreaming, especially when it comes to styling and dressing.
I’m always drawn to patterns and natural materials in summer, as most people I guess. I literally can’t wait to put my feets on a beach with sand beneath my toes, but while doing that I would love to look stylish as well. Above you can find my wishlist for my summer adventures. Summer come quickly!
