Hello loves! I hope you have all had a satisfying and relaxing weekend. This weekend I went for a barbecue with friends and today I went for a movie with family. We saw From Bombay to Paris, which of course made me dream of living in France as usual. It’s one of my dreams that is so close to my heart that I often catch myself daydreaming about fairy-tale moments in France. I am officially back in Dubai and that means “back to business”, I am trying to figure out how to live the life I dream of with the resources I currently have. I think sometimes it is important to just forget the rules and simply take a risk. They say you only regret the chances you didn’t take.Mmm easier said than done…

Cut Out Brogues
Guess who just bought a new pair of shoes? Me! I went on a mini shopping trip today and acquired a new pair of shoes.

Sophisticated Summer Inspiration
Today I wanted to share some classic summer styles to keep you inspired to be as chic as possible this summer. I recently went to a hotel for a weekend stay and saw all these ladies that just looked really classy in their swimwear and big floppy hats. I always feel a bit out of place as I’m not always sure how to style myself by the beach. I usually go for a pair of denim shorts and a tank top, or a patterned playsuit over my bikini. I’m not all that creative when it comes to beach dressing for some reason. I had a straw hat for like two minutes before it disappeared from my sight a few years ago. Therefore, this post is to inspire you the reader but also myself, to take more risks and take notes from some of the world’s classic fashion icons.
I hope this helps! A lot of these are Jackie Kennedy, who is such a fashion icon and who seemed to look flawless when on holiday. And I added Diana and Grace because we all love a Princess on holiday!
