Summer Dreaming


The weather’s been awful here lately, and as much as I love the colder months, when it feels like it’s non-stop rain & grey skies it definitely has me dreaming of warmer places. I’ve also not taken a proper holiday since Florida a few years ago, so I’ve promised myself that this year I’ll get away somewhere warm & I’ve been excitedly keeping my eye on the swimwear & summer clothing as it’s been trickling into the stores.

Beach Cafe helped me out last time finding the perfect black bikini & so of course I’ve been stalking their website again, they specialise in designer swim & beachwear, but also stock a range of accessories, plus dresses & kaftans that would look equally at home on the streets as on the beach. Like this top from Vitamin A, it’s technically a rashguard, but I’d happily wear it casually as a tee. When choosing bikinis I usually go for bandeau or triangle styles, but the graphic black on black jacquard print & sporty shape of this one from Mara Hoffman has me head over heels, and is high on my wishlist.

I recently came across the jewellery of Danish brand Bukkehave through the newly launched The Many Sides, which focuses on stocking fresh, independent designers from all over the world. You know I’m a big fan of supporting independents, so I was glad to have another store to add to my radar & be introduced to some new labels too. Bukkehave’s seaside inspired necklaces really grabbed my attention, I love the beach & swimming and I’m now daydreaming about that beautiful little fishtail necklace, the perfect trinket for wearing on long summer days.
