SUMMER ’16 THE EDIT | SEA, SURF & FUN

Week 2 (and last) of our stay in Hossegor and we all feel like we could have stayed here for a month. The weather has been absolutely amazing and everyone has really enjoyed surfing. We spend days at the beach swimming, surfing and sleeping and then days turned into late nights. If you’ve never been to Hossegor, you should know that Capbreton and Seignosse are really really close and great places to stay too. In fact this Summer, we’ve spent most of our times in Seignosse where our friends were surfing.

A few people coming to stay in our holidays homes (this one for 6 people and this one for 8 people) have been asking me about places to eat and what to do with young children so here are my favourite spots to eat in the Bay of Arcachon and they are all child-friendly.

5 THINGS I WANT RIGHT NOW! 31/07/2015 Read on www.karinecandicekong.com

5 things I want right now!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’m currently on holidays in beautiful Croatia (travel blog post to follow) and while Rovinj is a fantastic place to visit and has many wonderful things to offer, shopping for fashion has proven to be, well…a bit challenging :-) So if you’re heading there, here a 5 things you should really pack in your suitcase. 1/ Pretty tops covering as little skin as possible like this Palm Beach top or this Grecian top or Grecian dress now 50% OFF. 2/Pack several bikinis too as you’ll spend hours in the water! I usually alter between a bandeau bikini top (matching bottom here) and an halter bikini top to avoid suntanned marks. Hush has some fantastic swimwear in their Summer Sale and I’m also loving this flattering Boyleg swimsuit from Boden for watersports. 3/Light cotton shorts to go to the beach and this pretty pair of Nairobi silk shorts by Totême to go out (loving these Toulon silk wide-leg trousers too). 4/A great pair of sunglasses (mine are always Rayban) and a straw hat but you’ll find plenty of shops selling hats down here cheaper than in …

5 things I want right now!

We had a lovely article yesterday in Homes & Gardens featuring our new Paola Navone wallpapers and in fact, I loved their whole selection of blue & white wares. The Ralph Lauren ceramics are very pretty, you should check it out. By the time you’ll be reading this, I will be on my way to the airport, off to France again, with a suitcase hardly unpacked from my recent trip: Kaftan dress √,  Isabel Marant dress √, honeycomb paper balls for Mila’s party √  So here is my selection for this week, enjoy! 1/ I love this denim shirt from Frame Denim…one of my fav things to wear at the beach over a white t-shirt 2/ my gold shopper bag which Elodie finally gave me back last time we were in France together :-) 3/A pair of Rayban. Isn’t this dress in the sale so pretty!? 4/ This lovely top from Isabel Marant (same collection than the blue dress I’m selling here, available for sale at £340 here). Oh and I love these dungarees from Urban Outfitters 5/ and this denim jacket from Hush And for Steve, I really like …

The Kaftan dress

I can’t say I’m much of a fashion dresser at the beach. I like to keep things simple….Yoga, breakfast, beach/sailing/surfing, diner, sleep, repeat so I usually hang out in three different outfits: Outfit 1: white t-shirt + denim shorts + white converse although I do fancy a pair of Stan Smith for a change Outfit 2 (if temperatures get cooler): white t-shirt + denim shirt + boyfriend jeans Outfit 3: a Summer dress + Swedish Hasbeens So this Season, I treated my wardrobe to two Summer dresses: this white Cassy dress from Isabel Marant (I will actually put the same dress in blue for sale on Instagram tomorrow morning) and this black Kaftan dress.

HUSH BEACHWEAR: SS 2015 COLLECTION

Do you remember the two dresses I fell in love with when I went to the launch of the Hush beachwear collection two months ago? Well they are now on their site! My favourite one is the Kaftan dress (above) which I’ve ordered in XS as it’s quite a large fit. The other dress I love is the Palm beach dress (below) which has a gorgeous handmade crochet panel. If you need a short but efficient shoulder workout, check this one from Tracy Anderson (the advanced version here is killing me!!)
