Happy Thoughts

Being happy and at peace with yourself is always easier when you're surrounded by loving people or are in a dream location, even better when you can have both at the same time. Being away from the negativity in a slightly isolated place like a resort can be very therapeutic and healthy, especially if you're the type of person that easily stresses out. Over the years, I have always shared that my happy place is by the water. The waves and sea salt in the air calm me and fill me up with positive thoughts. 

I fell in love with this rather sexy bathing suit since the first time it appeared on Asos and kept looking for it until my size appeared. It's quite simple, but the cut of it is amazingly flattering and I adore how it fits. What do you think?

Travel Inspo: Scotland

Welcome back to a new Travel Inspo post, this time featuring beautiful Scotland. With the suffocating heat settling in Milan, I find myself looking to travel to either cooler locations or the seaside. We already know my love for the seaside is like no other, but it's fun to change it up.

How was your weekend? Are you energized and ready for a new week?

Feeling Orange

Orange is an energetic color, it's playful and exotic. However, this jovial color has never attracted me. I don't find it looks good on me, nor do I own any other orange clothing items except this one. It was a gift from my boyfriend, a long time ago. The dress is very easy to wear and I enjoy the cut of it, which is why I bust it out every summer. Even though orange isn't my color, looking at it against the blue of the sea, made me fall in love with it. If I would have to choose one favorite photoshoot from holidays, this would easily win. It's all thanks to the colors of the outfit and landscape combining and contrasting each other perfectly. 

Is there any color you don't enjoy wearing?

Satin Mermaid in Pleated Skirt

The next three posts are going to feature my favorite looks and shoots from my Dominican Republic vacation. Not only do I adore these particular outfits, but I love how the pictures turned out. The first one involves my best loved pleated skirt. The color makes me think of a mermaid while the slit gives a wow factor. This is the second outfit I put together with this skirt, see the first one here. Someone needs to make a mermaid emoji!

The silk/satin trend is still going strong and will continue to reign this autumn, from whimsical daywear to glamorous evening wear, it has us covered. Can't wait to style this skirt even more in autumn, just imagine it with boots! Are you loving the silk/satin trend?

Finding my Confidence

It's hard to love yourself and be confident when you're constantly wishing to change something about yourself. I've gone through periods where I'm super confident, but it's challenging to always fluctuate, especially when you're the kind of person that overanalyzes everything. 

I've postponed creating a blog and a Youtube channel because of what others might think, how they might criticize me or laugh at me. I was worried if anyone would read and watch. Sometimes these feelings still come up. Rather than pushing them down, I acknowledge them and try to solve the deeper problem, which is my confidence. 

There are a few things that have helped over the years and that are still helping me to this day. Hopefully when you're having a bad day you can realize you also have all of these in your life, or at least some.

Wardrobe Declutter | Carina Vardie

That I love to shop comes as no surprise, but that also means I sometimes go overboard and accumulate more than I actually need or wear. The day of the declutter finally came and in the spirit of laughing at myself a bit, I filmed the whole process. 

The guide lines were quite easy. Anything I haven't worn in a year would go out, except special occasions dresses or jumpsuits because of course those can't be worn on the daily. The other rule/purpose was to get rid of poor quality items, anything too plasticky had to go. 

If you're curious to see how much I kept and gave away, click the video below. Please subscribe and give it a thumbs up!

Golden Mermaid at Sunset


When visiting one of the most beautiful islands, experiencing the sunrise and sunset on the beach is a must. The golden light caresses your skin and hair, making you look like a Goddess and the scenery is breathtaking. The sun reflecting in the water while it's going down, takes your breath away, making you wonder how such a beauty is possible. The fresh water strokes your feet as you walk through the sand and the salty smell in air awakens a strong wish to be a mermaid enjoying the beauty of the sea every day. 

What outfit is better fit for a mermaid than a high low mint green dress? The train floats as the wind blows and hugs your body in all the right places. The flowing fit makes you feel free and cheerful. The mellow sun shine also hit my highlighter making me, again, look like a Goddess.

Off Shoulder Stripes in Paradise

Have you ever noticed how consciously or unconsciously all of us fashion lovers always wear a striped outfit on vacation? Stripes embody summer fashion and the beach. When I think of stripes two inspirations come in mind: either sea vibes or Parisian ones, which is why I will always wear such an outfit for the two. That doesn't mean I only wear stripes on vacation and in Paris, it's just the mind frame it gets me in. The stripes trend makes a comeback every spring and summer, be it in the classic nautical colors or 70s inspired ones. They are versatile and add something extra to an outfit. 

Ruffles have also made a comeback. They've been around since the 16th century flattering our silhouettes and romanticizing any look. I've been a fan for years now, even before they became a trend and they look especially chic in an off shoulder silhouette and in a striped pattern. While my outfit may seem simplistic, it's very well thought and incorporates all these spectacular elements I adore. 

What do you think?

Frill Bardot & Lace Beach Outfit

For this year's beach holiday I was on the hunt for a cute bikini ensemble that would incorporate both the off shoulder trend and laced up sides. It had to be sweet, yet a bit sexy. Also high waisted bottoms were a must, since some days I feel more comfortable hiding my belly. In order to have my perfect bikini, I combined contrasting styles from different brands. I had a lot of fun wearing this bikini on holidays and can't wait to wear it again, maybe at a pool party. 

What are you looking for in a bikini?

Travel Inspo: Bangkok

Bangkok really surprised me. I had heard a lot of stories always ending in "don't have too many expectations" and well, those people were wrong. Bangkok is an spectacular destination! There are so many temples to visit during the day and almost as many rooftop bars to have a drink at once the sun sets. Let's not forget about the markets, street food and malls. I would highly recommend trying everything at least once, go to at least one temple, market, rooftop bar and mall, even if they aren't really your style. Above all have fun and take in all of the culture! 

You can check out my Thailand blogposts here : Thailand Day 1, Thailand Day 2 aka best day ever,  Thailand Day 3Thailand Day 4 and a Food Diary. 

Have you visited Bangkok?

How to disconnect - 5 Tips + Lace Outfit

Is a technological disconnection even possible nowadays? We're surrounded and always on either our phones, tablets or laptops, be it for work or for our personal life. Disconnecting can sound impossible or harsh for someone like me, who literally spends the whole day on her laptop and phone for work and blogging. Digital marketing would be kind of hard without the digital part ahahah. This is why I wanted to share a few tips for disconnecting, "read more" for all the tips.

White Dress in color blocking Paradise

Don't be fooled by my shoe option into thinking this wasn't the most relaxing outfit. The shoes might seem high and scary, but because they are a platformed sandals, they are easy to walk in.  Last year I even walked on rocks with them and not only did I survive, but I also took some cute pictures. I will go to incredible lengths for the cutest picture ahaha. In case you didn't see that shoot, click here.

This adorable dress was perfect for my summer vacation. I had mentioned in my Siena post that it was a bit sheer, but at the sea side that doesn't really matter to me. It's flowing and ruffly, has giant bell sleeves that are super fun to wear, though not so fun during dinner. For a pop of color, I added my teal clutch and I was ready for dinner. Since the dress is loose fitted, it also hid my food baby so yay for that. 

How was your Monday babes?

Have a pink-tastic day!
