Le Soleil

Back from vacation and I'm beat! While I sort through the pictures on my camera, iphone And underwater cameras (3 disposable ones), here are some dreamy images that reflect my current mood perfectly. Drowsy from too much sun and sea, utterly relaxed and recharged and more than ready to go again. Bon weekend!

Me and the Open Sea less than 24 Hours! Can't wait to be in the Maldives and snorkel in the Indian Ocean. I've read reviews of travellers sighting baby sharks and even dolphins so you can imagine my excitement! These glorious pictures are the result of my 'research' on flickr. I'll probably be taking a boatload of pictures (pun maybe intended) but here is a little glimpse of paradise in advance. Switching to havaianas for five days sounds utterly divine.
À bientôt!

Night and Day

It's April and we're already one-third of the way into the year! For anyone who's feeling a need to go away and recharge, here are some essentials that I adore especially when throwing items into a last minute travel trunk. A gorgeous long black dress that is as simple as it is versatile. Perfect for dressing up or down, sufficiently slinky and so easy to pack. Also, an oversized jumper in neutral taupe that overwhelms in a wonderfully sensual way. You feel enveloped in a warm embrace. A casual tug to the side allows it to fall slightly off shoulder for a silhouette that conveys effortless insoucience. I find that the peach toned make up inspires me greatly. I like the bare minimum and this is appealing in a wholly fresh and innocent way. Rearranging my schedule to fit some R and R time in. Let's talk soon!

Le chapeau

Striking blue Maison Michel hat and the gorgeous 'Jac' Jagaciak make a winning combination. Can't think of anything better to draw even more attention to such a beautiful face. I love the two photos snapped at fashion week, one showcases the uber stylish hat and the other captures her undeniable features. Both saved to my inspiration folder. Now I just need to hunt down a version of that topper.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend filled with beautiful things, lovely people and plenty of sweet treats!
Is this not the most romantic, lush, perfect circlet of flowers ever?

Noir et Blanc

You may notice less words in the recent posts but the usual philosophizing will resume, I promise. Just give me two weeks! For now, the charmingly beautiful Natalia Vodianova steals the show in the lastest Stuart Weitzman campaigns. I love that it's shot in black and white but don't know if it really displays the shoes to their best advantage. There is something reminescent of Natalia's Calvin Klein underwear ads but the simplicity works nevertheless.
