packing for a summer trip

ESPRIT SUMMER TRIP

As most women, I always tend to pack way too many items when I travel. This summer, I decided to only bring a carry-on suitcase for a long weekend with friends on the Liguria coast in Italy, here are my travel essentials:

A black swimsuit (that can be used as a top with a pareo for a quick lunch or happy hour), a nice chic blouse combined with denim jeans and a shopper that I’ll use to carry all my belongings and my books, at the beach.

I love the tassel detail on this bikini bottom perfect to look good on the beach, these fringed mules can also be worn at night for a more casual look and this red dress is just amazing !

For the evening, a small black purse (this one has sequins on which makes it perfect to go out dancing as well !), high heel sandals, a jumpsuit that can be worn with sandals for a more casual look during the day or heels for a more elegant look. I also love this white one shoulder summer dress that will look great for happy hour…

happy friday

urban terrace

Happy happy Friday! I hope you all had a good week. I kept it pretty quite because of post-OP tiredness (I felt like an 80 year old woman till yesterday) but I guess it wasn’t bad to take a little forced break since I won’t have any holiday this summer and our US marathon trip is coming up in August and I have 4 interior design projects to prepare!

Here are 3 things making me happy…
