DREAMING OF PARADISE

“This comfy sweatshirt with palm tree print from Saint Laurent’s SS18 collection screams airport chic! The print almost feels like a graffiti artist spray-painted his artwork on it, making it the ideal piece to throw on with a pair of jeans when you’re flying off to your destination. I love how a simple statement like the fadeout image of the palm trees on a cream background brings back so much of memories of my unforgettable trip to Bali last year.”

“I’ve got my eyes on this pair of sliders that’s designed by the founder of MSGM, Massimo Giorgetti. Not only are they perfect to wear by the pool or at the beach, styling is made easypeasy when you have a sundress and boat hat to pair them with for the warm weather! I’m lovin’ how designers are parading their brands on apparels and accessories this season, and I know for sure that this logo-mania craze isn’t simmering down anytime soon. You know what they say: if you love your designers, flaunt them!” 2 BRANDED SLIDER, MSGM
“Woven straw bags are tote-ally my latest obsession! I especially adore how this one has weaved-in stripes and an orange embossed quote that set it apart from the plain straw bags that we see in stores everywhere. It’s time to put away your regular totes and substitute them with this arm candy for the beach. It’s the perfect thing to carry when you’re out and about yet still want to look on-point.”
