Poolside stories from South Africa

Poolside essentials - my favorite Céline sunnies, the latest issue of PORTER magazine for something to read and my cotton string bag to carry all the things I need, from a beach towel to sun lotion and a bottle of water.

South Africa is one of the routes I get quite often, heading back to Johannesburg in the end of this week. You know where you'll find me, by the pool.

Effortless. 
That's the thing I'm always looking for when deciding what to wear. 
It doesn't mean that you always throw on the first thing you see in your closet, it's more about finding a style that makes you feel comfortable, confident and yet, easy. 

For me that usually means finding staple products that always work. During the summer season those products are definitely my ATP Atelier sandals, Céline sunnies and this lovely bag from Labour & Wait that works from a daily bag to carrying a beach towels or for all my fruits and vegetables when grocery shopping.

Also, yay for August. 
My favorite month - though I'm biased, as it's my birthday month. And I'm more than excited to go to Finland to celebrate it. One more week !

Have a lovely weekend.

FRIDAY FIVE

just now1-062

Friday ! And a really good one. 

Had a good time at work today, even though I had to wake up at 4am. Then had a lovely evening at home. You know the kind of an evening, when you're not really doing anything special but you just get to relax and do your own thing with no rush.

1. A vacation in Italy is on my mind. Currently planning to go there in September for a long weekend. And oh boy - I'm so excited. That's what I love about vacations, the time before the actual trip. You get to be excited, inspired and all the fun is still ahead of you. So sunny days and vacay mood. I'm coming for you.

2. Currently coveting over these kitten heels from Ganni. Might have ordered them for a birthday gift from me to me. Let's hope they fit !

3. The first time in a while that I have been excited about autumn wear. But this post by Amanda Shadforth and the coat - too good.

4. Lately I've had to remind myself about how important those slow morning are. Whether I'm having a day off or a busy work day, it just sets the tone for the day. So as a selfreminder - take time to sit down, whether it's for your breakfast, a cup of coffee or a quick flickthrough of your favorite magazine. 

5. One to follow on instagram, @nycbambi - so inspiring !
