I haven't posted a My Must Haves list in months! That doesn't mean I haven't been lusting over a few fabulous items. Now that we're getting closer to "normal" life and back to socializing, I'm working on my summer wardrobe and am feeling colorful.
This Bottega Veneta padded Cassette shoulder bag (available at Farfetch) is GORGEOUS! This bag is taking over Instagram and so worth the two bags I had to sell, so I could get this one. This spearmint blue color is perfect for summer. This shoulder bag comes in many colors with a leather strap or thick gold and silver chain strap. There's also a non-padded version that's a little less expensive. I'm obsessed with Bottega Veneta this season. The bags and shoes are unique statement pieces.
I saw these Givency Paris flat logo slides (available at MyTheresa and Farfetch) a while back and regret not purchasing them. These slides are available in a few colors, but I can't find the purple ones. BUMMER! These slides have a laid-back vibe that's perfect for running errands or having by the pool.
I banned myself from shopping Dior in February - the addiction was out of control! BUT, I'm back at it and loving these DiorAct white lambskin sandals (available at Dior boutiques). The "dad sandal" is on trend and there's many styles to choose from. This is THE Summer sandal.
This Jacquemus Le Porte Gourde bag (available at Farfetch) is a little silly, but if you like to have water on hand at all times (like me), this is a cute way to "wear your water"!
These Rodarte gingham cotton-blend sweatpants (available at MyTheresa) are fabulous! The high-waisted style is flattering and I love the contrast of the pink/white gingham and black/white striped cuff. There's a matching sweater - HAVE TO HAVE!
I'm not a big platform shoe fan, but kinda want these Stella Mccartney Giai lace-up espadrilles (available at Farfetch) are SUPER CUTE. The unique style has logo lacing along the vamp that wraps around your ankle. LOVE!

Like most fashionistas, I'm obsessed with Bottega Veneta this season. Uh oh Dior (my long time designer obsession), I think I might have to push the pause button for a little while.
The Bottega Veneta shell shoulder bag was the first to catch my eye. It comes in three sizes and a variety of colors. The cutout detailing gives this bag a modern look. I always go with the most unique bag in the collection, but don't seem to get appreciation from the fashion crowd, SO I'm gonna keep this one in mind and opt for a another style..
But first, lets talk about the shoes. I want all of them. The Bottega Veneta raffia sandals are GORGEOUS! The Intrecciato design is synonymous with the brand. Not sure if these would be comfy, but who cares.
I don't recall Bottega Veneta being on everyones wish list in a while, but whomever took over the design team is WOWING fashion lovers. These Bottege Veneta almond pumps and mesh-panel sandals are both stretchy and unique. The mesh-panel sandals are on the top of my must-have list.
The Bottega Veneta Intrecciato tote has an oversized slouchy body that's easy to pack and great for travel or running errands. BTW - Intrecciato is a unique Italian technique of weaving leather.
These Bottega Veneta slingback strap slippers are a MUST-HAVE. They're futuristic and fun. I love this shade of pink. These casual shoes are perfect for summer.
After much consideration, the Bottega Veneta padded cassette shoulder bag made it to the top of my handbag list. These weaved bags are on trend and available in a variety of colors. I like the neutral shades and the spearmint blue (got my eye on that one).
The Bottega Veneta padded chain cassette shoulder bag is similar to the previous bag, but dons a thick chain in either silver or gold - depending on the color of the bag. This is the BV bag taking over Instagram.
Another take on the classic Intrecciato weave - These Bottega Veneta mules are a statement. The bold platform mules are made from ivory nappa leather. LOVE!
Last on the list - the Bottega Veneta fringe crisscross leather clutch is a show stopper. Anything fringe walks nicely and attracts attention. This clutch is unique and a nice addition to a fashionistas collection.
Get my obsession? The BV collection is amazing! Fingers crossed that I'll wake up one day with a Bottega Veneta box calling my name..

It's hot and humid in Santorini.. Fussing with perfect hair and makeup is wasted vacation time, so I'm keeping it simple. Bronzer and coral blush are enough to brighten my complexion and give a natural glow (of course I'm avoiding to tan my face). Bronzer allows for consistent color all over without undoing all the facial laser treatments and anti-aging you've worked towards over the years - your face is sensitive and you will regret the sun damage one day. I straightened my hair once and it lasted a few hours - not worth the effort. My hairstyle of choice - a low-bun with pieces falling out. A windblown 'effortless' style.
Accessories are important on vacation and white pieces standout against your sun-kissed skin. Layer bracelets and pile on small rings - opt for tiny rose gold or silver rings on each finger (rose gold looks great on tanned skin). Vacation destinations are great places to shop for accessories - so hit the stores early in your vacation and stock up on local (handmade) accessories.
