H&M maxi skirt, linen shirt & pool slides ⎪ RAY-BAN Round Metal sunglasses

And here's today's second post: the outfit I've been dying to show you! This was actually one of the first ones we shot back in Saint-Tropez, but since the photos were taken in collaboration with Grazia.it I had to wait until the feature came out a few days ago before I could post them on the blog. You can see my take on the "all white" trend right here on their website! The outfit was shot at the villa we stayed in in France; a lovely authentic house with lots of privacy and a gorgeous sea view. You'd almost think I went on holiday to one of the Spanish islands, right? Let's move on to the outfit then, since it's my absolute favourite one from all of my vacay looks! The maxi skirt that I told you about in an earlier post has been a favourite throughout the holiday, since it has the perfect slouchy Ibiza vibe but looks ultra chic when combined with a preppy shirt and tiny golden jewellery. Those H&M pool slides totally finish the look, don't you think? I was so happy that I stumbled upon them after being so disappointed for not finding the nude embellished ones. They were a total steal and extremely comfy, so there's one happy girl over here!

After drooling over these summer photos, it's back to birthday reality now! With a 70% chance of rain today, the foresight of a few hours of studying and almost none of my friends/family being at home it's going to be an intimate, cozy indoor party with the boyfriend tonight. I might want to relax a bit before next week begins anyway: I have to pass an exam, will go on a flash trip to Amsterdam, have some modeling work to do and must prepare my grand garden party for my birthday! I almost got tired of just summing everything up, so let's chill in 3...2...1...go! Have a great weekend!

Hey shawties (one shawty, two shawties?)! It's my birthday! Today I'm turning 23 and as a crazy coincidence I just received this giant balloon from Tally Weijl, a Swiss fashion brand that celebrates its 30th birthday. Celebrating together is way more fun, so let's just mix up these two birthdays in one picture! Soooo today will be all about balloons, cake, presents, laughter and glitters. No wait, actually it will be all about some more studying for my exam on Tuesday and hopefully a nice dinner in the evening!

In any case, I'm very happy to spoil you with a super fun present: you can win a $100 voucher by LUMO, a gorgeous California-based jewellery brand! Loads of you guys already participated yesterday, but because you're celebrating with me today you can have 2 EXTRA CHANCES of winning! How to earn these 2 extra shots? You simply go back to the giveaway page riiiiiiiight here and follow the instructions on the widget to LIKE the LUMO Facebook page! So besides your two extra shots at winning a voucher from your new favourite brand, you will also receive their collection updates as the very first. There's another small present I planned for you: there's going to be a second post this afternoon! It's my favourite and last Saint-Tropez outfit, so I hope to see you all back later on today! That would be lovely!

The prices range between 40$ for a classic silver ring and $625 for a pair of gold and emerald earrings. I picked two super thin and versatile rings that I prefer wearing together on one finger!

BEACH COVER UP




 TOPSHOP beach cover up ⎪ ASOS sunglasses ⎪ ESPRIT beach bag
BIRKENSTOCK slippers ⎪ ST-TROPEZ MARKET hat

Yup, I went from cashmere sweaters and winter wishlists to another holiday outfit JUST LIKE THAT. Boom. The current summer weather is super depressive so I'm very happy that I still have so many sunny photos to share with you! Let's dream away together to the last day of my Saint-Tropez vacay in July. In the morning we packed all of our bags to leave during the following night, and then we decided to head to the beach one last time. We ordered our last bottle(s) of rosé wine, squeezed our almost empty bottle of sunscreen for the last time and did a last pretty cold swim. The weather was absolutely splendid so we stretched our stay until about 8PM. This Topshop beach cover up was an early spring buy with summer in mind, and boy I lived in it in France! I love the lightness, the perfect amount of slouch and the chic overall feel when combined with a panama hat. This one is definitely a keeper for hot pool days! In the evening I switched into black shorts and a silk shirt to celebrate our last evening. We went to the amazing Les Sauvageonnes, which I showed you in my Saint-Tropez recap! Finally a few hours later it was time to head home again. Just like that.

BIRTHDAY WISHLIST

ZARA navy cashmere sweater ⎪ ZARA HOME decorative skull ⎪ H&M HOME candle
IPHONE 5sADIDAS Stan Smith sneakers ⎪ ASOS scarf ⎪ & OTHER STORIES leather jacket
FURNLAB copper coffeetable ⎪ COACH Mini Borough bag ⎪ PANCAKES breakfast

This Saturday I'm celebrating my 23rd birthday and what's a birthday without a proper wishlist? That's right, this Leo has been browsing the web for stuff that's clearly missing in her life! First of all, and very much needed, a new iPhone. People obviously don't buy presents this expensive, but I do have to save up for one since my old pal decided to stop working last week. Maybe I should try out a smartphone from another, less expensive brand but I'm so Apple brainwashed that I'm having a hard time even contemplating the option. 

An item that has been on my mind since forever (ok, about 4 months) is this pair of Stan Smith sneakers. They would totally level up my sneaker collection, don't you think? I came up with SO many possible outfits already! More level-upping could be done by that gorgeous leather jacket by & Other Stories... Furthermore I'd love to wrap that huge tartan scarf around my upper body this autumn, and drown in the most perfect cashmere boyfriend sweater I've ever seen (and tried on). Next up is that adorable chic-looking Coach bag that would look really good in a super casual outfit with a pair of sneakers. As for black bags I currently only have my small H&M bag, which is sometimes a bit too tiny. So this one would be very welcome! 

On to the decoration part then: I'm always in for new stuff to put in my home, although my boyfriend hates me for it. I prefer creepy accessories, copper or golden accents and loads of candles. And I have obviously saved the best for last: a pancake breakfast on bed! That would totally alleviate the suffering that will follow during the day: studying on my birthday. Yikes. So yes, I'm counting on virtual support this Saturday! I accept virtual Zara shopping vouchers as well, thank you, come again! ;-)
