SUMMER ’16 THE EDIT | SEA, SURF & FUN

August 15, 2016

Sea, Surf & FunWeek 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.

5 THINGS I WANT RIGHT NOW!

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

5/Last but not least, a pair of pretty sandals. I forgot mine in London and it was impossible to find a nice, simple pair to go with my Kaftan dress. The ones available in Rovinj had far too many bling bling details for my taste.

PS: My pair of Stan Smith saw the daylight once (too hot to wear) but I thought you would love to know that I got these ones from Zalando at a fantastic price+ 10% OFF after subscribing to their e-news.
