Mimosa

        It's almost the end of summer. I've never liked that period as a kid because that meant going back to school which stressed me out. But I grew up appreciating it a whole lot more, especially living in New York because it's the period when the heat becomes bearable. It's warm but not too hot, so you can still wear cute dresses without ruining them in sweat!

        Talking about cute dresses, I have a good friend who is also a great designer, Danica Zheng, and when I saw on her brand's Instagram, Pamplemousse NY, the new version of her "Mimosa" dress. I just couldn't resist the cheetah print and asked her if I could try it on asap to see if it fit me. There's also a black version of it, but I found the white one to be slightly more original than the classic cheetah look. I also thought the color looked good with my hair ;)! Anyway, I fell in love with that cute dress and brought it home and felt inspired for a quick shoot in a botanical garden to celebrate the end of summer with fun.

        I accessorized it with the cutest bag from Maison Héroine! I love it because it's big enough to hold my kindle which is the best to keep busy during the wait at the airport, castings and when I enjoy a coffee alone. To protect my head from getting too much sun I wore an old hat found in my closet and my classic Dita Eyewear sunnies obviously! I also have these boots from Isabel Marant which I always wanted the color to be a bit darker until today because I thought all the colors were working well together.

I loved walking around this botanical garden as we were lucky it wasn't crowded, so we could enjoy the beauty of the flowers and the sound of water in a calm atmosphere in between shots.

And when it got a bit chilly I wore this super large cardigan from & Other Stories that I got a few years ago. I love the long sleeves and how heavy it is because it makes everything more cosy and chill.

Punta Cana

image9.jpeg
 

 

        Every winter I say "next year, I go to a warm country and enjoy the beach when everyone else is freezing" lol. Yet last winter I spent a few days at a spa in France, which was nice but no dreamy beaches around, and the winter before I spent the New Year with friends in Amsterdam and again it was a lot of fun but I was freezing my ass! So this year was the year, I wanted to start 2018 in paradise.

I make a difference between "travel" and "vacation". I love traveling and discover cultures and places, but sometimes you need a vacation when you just enjoy and relax, so we decided on Punta Cana because it's a really short flight from NYC and the prices aren't as high as anywhere else. I have to admit that everything was great except the food that wasn't as fresh and good quality as we like... We've also had a cold that we brought from NYC, and we fed the cliché of those who only become sick during their holiday haha! But we came for the beautiful weather and the beach and that was enough to start the year in a positive way.

        One of the greatest pleasures from spending some time in the Caribbeans was to wear my favorite bikini by Solid and Striped. I love all their shapes and colors but this pastel striped one is the cutest swimsuit I've had in a while! I love the pictures from the empty beach and how happy I look lol!

One of my favorite thing to do during the day was read 1Q84 by Murakami in the Bali beds while the sun was high, so I could feel the heat without burning, hearing the relaxing water noise from both the beach waves and the pool.

        I also go to enjoy a few massages and treatments at the spa. I got a dead sea mud treatment before leaving to make my skin tone more even by nourishing it and exfoliating the dead cells. And look at the beauty of the facilities! I thing the pleasure of the eyes is important for relaxation, as well as the sounds surrounding you.

        I brought many shorts, tops and dresses but I think I wore this green wrap dress from Urban Outfitters because it's so comfortable when it's hot and it's so convenient to wear over your bathing suit. It's quite open on the front though so I'm not sure I'd wear it without a cute bra/shirt underneath.

        Everyone who knows me or just follows me on Instagram know I couldn't not own a red swimsuit! This one is from Fella Swim, I saw it on the gram and loved the shape of the top and couldn't resist buying it in one of my favorite colors. I also like to walk around with a sarong for when there's more wind and I feel colder or just when there more people and it makes me feel more comfortable. The beach bag is from Free People, one of my favorite brand! It's simple, just what you need for the beach.
