Easy, Breezy

 what I am wearing :  
top:  J.Crew  •  shorts:  Zara  •  handbag:  Longchamp “Le Pliage”  •  ballet flats:  Jonak  •  sunglasses:  S. Oliver c/o  •  earrings:  souvenir from Venice

My fellow Europeans will probably agree: the past week getting dressed was more a burden than the usual pleasure. With the temps high up in the 20s and 30s, my new bikini and a cover-up were all I wanted to wear during the day. A freezer full of ice cream and an inflatable kiddy pool with ice cold water (thank you daddy!) helped me to not melt away under the burning sun. And to top off this gorgeous week of sunshine: I somehow managed to get through the first heat wave without the slightest clue of a sunburn. I call that a miracle!
Over the weekend then, I was forced out of the house by K for a low-key lunch and a little shopping and that of course called for a more appropriate outfit. But what does one wear when one doesn’t want to wear much? The possibly widest top in the universe is what one wears! This pretty J.Crew number was brought home by my sweet and loving (read: annoyed and stressed out) boyfriend who very willingly (read: not) went into J.Crew for me when he was in the US last week. This top fits very loose and is made from a light cotton which makes it very breezy and perfect to wear when you feel hot and sticky (too much information?). I love it, and have thought of a few different ways to style it for upcoming warm days. That is if these summer storms will ever pass. Rain, rain go away!

    Die top is inderdaad echt prachtig, en hij ziet er echt comfortabel uit bij zo’n hitte!

    That is such a gorgeous oversized top! 🙂 Love the detail on the sleeves. It’s great that your boyfriend could do some shopping for you in the US. Did he find a Rebecca Minkoff bag for you? Or just shop up a storm in J Crew? 🙂

    Enjoy your summer!

      Thank you Mica! Unfortunately, I am still without my beloved rebecca minkoff bag. However, I have something more exciting planned with the budget I saved: a two day getaway to Paris in October! xo

        Oh wow, that is even better than a bag! I’d love to go to Paris 🙂

      Haha, Ik wilde de beautiful er nog achter zetten en ipv Covergirl dan J.Crew typen, maar bedacht me dat die slogan waarschijnlijk copyright protected zou zijn 🙂 xo

    I love how the loose top gives you such a neat silhouette. Hope it cools down.

    Supermooi bloesje! Die kleur past ook echt geweldig mooi bij u haar. Ik kan me voorstellen dat u vriendje met niet veel goesting dit bloesje is gaan shoppen voor u, die van mij zou gezegd hebben “trek u plan” 😀

    Nikki, I have always been so inspired by your beautiful and kind heart. Thank you so much for stopping by l’esthetique today and giving me such words of warmth. I am truly so fortunate to have found such an amazing connection through this little blogging community. Your words will forever be engrained in my heart!

    Now, if this is what high temps do to you, I definitely need to hop on board! The detailing on that top is so beautiful; and even though you said getting dressed seemed like more of a chore than anything, it was seriously worth it! Now I want to make a flowy top and white shorts my go to summer uniform 😉
