GASSIN VILLAGE





ZARA dress ⎪ H&M straw hat & bag
MANGO sandals ⎪ CELINE sunglasses

A tan and some stripes is the only thing that I seem to be wearing here in France! The boyfriend and I took a day off (off the beach, that is) and went on a day trip to the tiny village of Gassin. This village is literally un de Les Plus Beaux Villages de France, so definitely worth a visit! Actually we first tried to bike all the way up, but since we forgot our water at home we gave up after an hour of climbing in the burning sun. Still very much intrigued by Gassin, we afterwards took the car to visit the village and of course snap my outfit. I wore a Zara TRF dress that I snatched up in sale for an excellent price only a few days before our holiday. I instantly knew this was going to be a summer favourite, for I'm crazy about stripes and boxy shapes. This dress can be worn in a very sporty and casual way, but can be easily dressed up as well. I chose for something in between: a casual holiday look with the straw hat and the tiny bag adding an elegant touch. What do you say?

MAXI HAT & SKIRT




MANGO bikini ⎪ H&M skirt ⎪ URBAN OUTFITTERS hat

Mes amis! Life in France is absolutely amazing: I can barely move my limbs due to the heat, am drinking rosé wine by the bottle and have almost finished my second book this week. The heat I referred to also makes wearing clothes quite difficult, so I'm limited to a bikini and some extra accessories. On this particular day I wore a cotton maxi skirt by the H&M Conscious Collection from a few years ago. I fell in love after seeing it on Angelica (here and here) but never got around buying it, until it was of course sold out. Major regrets. Last month I stumbled upon this same skirt at my own closet sale and purchased it for only €5! It's one size too big, but this equals more bulkiness and length, which means win-win! Isn't it the most amazing beach cover up? I think it works out great with this Mango bikini (eeeeek, first bikini shots on the blog!) and my trusty old Urban Outfitters straw hat. Expect more of these holiday outfits soon. Take care!

THOSE SUMMER NIGHTS




H&M striped longsleeve ⎪ ZARA denim ⎪ BIRKENSTOCK slippers

Here we are - a first outfit from France! I'm sorry to have made you all excited last time for just a tee and jeans, but this or a bikini is actually all I have worn. This family holiday is all about relaxing, napping, sipping wine, reading books and playing games so there's no need to dress up at all. Of course the boyfriend and I go to dinner sometimes, so I'll try to capture one of my more 'fancy' holiday outfits too. For now we're going back to what seems to be the core message of this blog: comfy does best. These Birkenstocks are the best investment I've made in months, since I ordered them here only a few days before we took off and it's literally the only pair of shoes I've been wearing here. The boyfriend even stole them a few times (we have the same shoe size, remember?). Anyway, the pool is calling my name so I'm off for some more sunbathing! Bye!

WELCOME TO SAINT-TROPEZ




Hi guys! Yesterday evening my boyfriend arrived at the wonderful Côte d'Azur for a well-deserved two week holiday. His family stays here every year and right after his DJ gig at Tomorrowland we jumped into the car to join them. The internet connection seems to be faster than expected, so I'm definitely planning to share my outfits with you. Priority number one stays of course relaxing, drinking wine and getting a proper tan! Let's get started with it right away! Speak to you soon x

HUSH HUSH




H&M hat & bag ⎪ BIRKENSTOCK slippers ⎪ CELINE sunglasses

Hi guys! Quite the opposite of my last post here, right? Today I want to tell you about the wonderful hot temperatures and the chance to finally wear Hush, one of my new favourite brands. Hush is a UK-based luxury lounge brand that creates pieces for women that want to look elegant but want to feel comfortable at the same time. Sounds a lot like moi! Besides daywear Hush also offers nightwear (epic dressing gowns and the prettiest grown-up pyjamas I've seen in a long time!), jewellery, footwear and the so-called 'treats'. Because sipping from a Teapigs Tea and reading a romantic novel kind of helps you feeling comfy!

I'm wearing a knit tee and a loose pair of shorts, which can easily top my trusty sweatsuit in level of comfort and definitely prettiness. I cannot wait for their autumn collection to arrive! Think of all the chunky knits, thin cashmere longsleeves and hopefully also wool beanies and scarves to come... I have included more pictures from the webshop right below, including a gorgeous striped sweater, a few perfect little black dresses and some real cool boyfriend jeans. Prettiness of course doesn't come for free, but the prices are very reasonable if you want to invest in a great basic wardrobe! Yes, I know it sounds like I was paid to say all these positive things, but in reality the sweet Hush people just sent me a few pieces over to review them. Guess this has been a outstanding positive experience!  Oh, and as you can see I caved for another pair of Birks. I have been wearing my leopard ones so much already and decided to try out the famous black Arizona ones as well. They were instantly glued to my feet and are currently my number one footwear for my holiday next week... Now, what do you think of the outfit and of Hush? Had you heard of it before?
