Summer holidays are about to start and I’m going to help you to get ready in the best way possible. Ladies, take care of yourselves and start make the most out of that time!
I’m starting off with some manicure:
I put together three colours in different shades you should definitely try. Each colour represents or reminds me of a holiday place which would suit perfectly to the colour. So if you’re heading to one of these places, keep that one colour in your mind! The first one happens to be this dusty sea blue/green/grey mix. As I’m going to spend a part of my holidays at the Côte d’Azur, it is going to be my colour. It just seems to be such a fresh contrast to the heat we’re all going to feel.
Second one: Barbie pink. It might be exaggeratedly girlie for some people but perfect for summer. You still have to imagine the nice tan you will have. Sounds much better now, right? As I already mentioned that it’s rather girly I immediatly thought of Los Angeles where all these barbie girls will find the perfect place to be.
Here I’m heading straight to the location. Sicily! I’ve never been there but it’s one of the destinations I’m still dreaming about. I’m heaving a picture in my mind of a sophisticated young woman wearing this bright red lipstick, a foulard wrapped around her head and driving down the coast in a cabriolet. Sometimes you just can’t explain a colour in words..

I call them the shoes of the upcoming season. You can’t walk by a shop without spotting some espadrilles in the window. Their popularity gets bigger every year and with good reason. So I have to say that a pair of them is a Must-Have for everyone. They make the perfect match to every look. If it’s a summer dress or simply combined with jeans, there isn’t a way you can’t wear them. Think of these words next time you go shoe-shopping and now get inspired by some personal favorites of mine. On the top : Valentino

Ok, it’s slowly time to get ready for summer & the beach. If you’re still looking for THE bikini to wear this season I might give you a little help. My motto for this year is ‘as colourful as possible’. My absolute favorite bikini for which I’m dying for is the Emilio Pucci on the right side. The colours, the shape and pattern are simply amazing. As usual I put on some affordable pieces as well.
What’s in my closet? Two Palm Swimwear tops. Just as the trendy brand ‘Triangl swimwear’ , Palm Swimwear comes from Australia as well. Looks like they’re very good at this. A lovely Aussie friend introduced me to the brand and I couldn’t be happier that she did! Even if they’re totally the opposite of colourful, I bought them last season so that’s kind of my excuse..
