Good job I’m not going back to school in September. Ripped boyfriend jeans and Stan Smith are kind of my uniform these days… Continue Reading

Summer vibes

Summer vibesThese past few days have been feeling like Summer holidays.
I’m not on holidays yet but as a friend of a friend said when he moved from Paris to Brittany “I live on holidays”.

I didn’t think I could. I didn’t think I wanted to be here. I didn’t want to live London and after losing my grandmother, my aunt and dad…I wasn’t sure the Bay was the place I wanted to be, too many memories but time heals…

Spending these past months in our holiday home in France where the weather has been pretty glorious, re-inventing & creating a new life less stressful, taking surfing lessons, having breakfast outside on the deck, friends around, picnics at the beach in the evening like last night, felt exactly like this…I live on holidays.

A light & airy dutch family home

House tour- a light & airy dutch family homeLast week, I featured two shots from this Dutch home photographed by Sonja Velda, first in my post about these four beautiful white kitchens with concrete floor and then this amazing sliding door in my DETAILS series.

I thought the house was so beautiful that it was worth showing you the rest of it.

I have also found out since then, that the vintage patchwork on the sliding door was a wallpaper by Studio Onszelf which made my day as this will be a lot easier to use!

So without further ado, let me show the rest of this fabulous, family home.

5 Things I Want Right Now!

5 Things I Want Right Now in the SaleI had two things on my wish list for a long long time and when I saw they were both on sale, my heart skipped a beat!

The first one was this gorgeous leopard clutch (30% OFF) by Clare Vivier which I saw in a Steven Alan shop in San-Francisco and then spent my jetlagged evening trying to find it cheaper online.
I didn’t… So I ended up buying this gorgeous white dress, which is now sold out but this one is at 50% OFF.

I also love this openwork panel dress sadly not in the sale but as it is from Mango, it remains affordable.

And then, THE cabas by Vanessa Bruno.
I’ve always thought, comes the right time, that I would get the brown linen cabas but last time I went to Hossegor, I saw the nude version in a shop and fell in love with it.
It is now 40% OFF so BAM! Here is my first sale purchase, well technically my second because I also grabbed a pair of slimming leggings to run from Mango at 50% OFF but running gear doesn’t count, does it!? :-)

So here is my selection for this week… Continue Reading
