beach outfits

beach outfit 1

For me, there is nothing better than having to decide what to wear to the beach because a) it means I’m on holidays somewhere nice (duh) and b) it’s hot so just 2-3 pieces of clothes and some cool accessories are needed…

Here are some outfits I find perfect:

// above: love the boho chic touch of that outfit //

beach outfit 2

// You can’t do anything wrong by wearing ripped denim shorts… //

beach outfit 3

// Stripes + Panama = perfect combo //

beach outfit 4// Like the headband! //

// A simple white tunic is stunning (how come Olivia Palermo never EVER looks bad?!? why?) //

cool places : masseria cimino in apulia, italy


My boyfriend is from Apulia so I have a very particular relation with that region. The food is to die for (well, that was an easy one, it is to die for all over the country really) and the landscape (including some of Italy’s nicest beaches) is breathtaking. We were planning on going back maybe this fall for a little get-away weekend, would love to spend a night at the Masseria Cimino…

happy friday

mallorcaMy week flew so fast that I still don’t realize it is Friday already. The heat wave in Milan is almost unbearable and we may spend the whole weekend at the lake to escape (thinking about bringing my poor cat along in a backpack or something). Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE summer (could be like that all year round) but when you don’t have a pool or a beach near by it just gets a bit frustrating…

Anyway, here are 3 things making me happy:

Planning a little break to my adored Majorca Island with my mama in September

mango sandals

In love with these beauties (on sale at Mango for 34 euro… I don’t think I have any excuse not to buy them?!?)

bruschetta atelier boemia

Made bruschetta last week, the easiest, simpliest and most delicious summer finger food (plate atelierBOEMIA)

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
