At Home Hortus Botanicus

Go and get the green from the outside into your home! The botanical interior trend has been visible for quite a while already. And we’re not talking only about the flora, but also about the fauna.

Must Love Sun Hats

Must Love Sun Hats

One has to wear hats. Just a little statement… It brightens your day, especially if you wear a sun hat from Lina Rennell. They are made from 100% organic canvas, semi-floppy AND topless (very practical!). Avaliable in classic black but also in many beautiful colors! Good to know: one size fits most heads. Gotta love them!

Pure bathing suits

Pure bathing suits

I’m totally loving the bathing suit trend at this moment. And I just stumbled upon this great new swimwear label (launched this spring!) called Lido.
