For this month’s Top 5 post, we’ve put together our top things to do (and what to wear for them ;)) during summer holidays and weekends.
Summer is the time for open-air fun and music – throw on a Fishnet Cover-Up and you’re ready to rock.
Hopefully you’ll get to go to a wedding or two this summer. These are always the loveliest events, with emotion, nostalgia, lots of beautiful people and even more fun!
3. URBAN PICNIC
If you don’t manage to escape the city during the weekend, why not have a picnic in the park? Bring food, a bit of bubbly and wear summer’s favourite colour – white.
4. ROOFTOP PARTY
A glamorous night out on a rooftop just calls for some sparkle – why not leave the Elve Brawith pearl details peeking out from your outfit. The perfect way to nail underwear as outerwear.
5. CITY TRIP
The perfect way to make the most of your (long) weekend off is to hop on a plane to a nearby city and spend the time exploring. Change into the versatile Rebecca Body, grab a map and make new memories 🙂
From the Mediterranean white buildings and azul horizons to the Californian powder blues and pinks – it is these distinct features of the iconic getaway destinations that dictate our holiday wardrobes. So for July TOP 5 we’ve put together a small guide to help you find the perfect swim piece for your holiday!
1. Summer in the wild
Hiking, rafting, exploring and getting inspired by nature – there’s definitely no time to worry about your outfit. Cover up with the versatile Fishnet Dress and start your adventure!
2. Pacific Escape
Enjoy surfing and other watersports in Hawaii without having to worry about your bikini rolling off with the waves. Keep it cool with the Wings Swimsuit.

Read: The Life Changing magic of not giving a f**k
I am a born stress ball. It runs in my genes. I worry about everything there is to worry about and then feel guilty if I don´t worry about it, so I worry about that. I am on a mission to eliminate this useless stressing from my life. So when this book by Sarah Knight came along, I had to have it. What was great about it was the realisation of actually how much I already don´t give a f**k. That made me happy. But on top of that, it was just purely funny. Good light read.
End of April I visited the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico for a long weekend holiday. These 4 days felt like a week as it was so easy to get into the vacation mode. With endless white sand and clear blue water beaches, Tulum was an absolute treasure to find. Another find was the little fishermen´s village of El Cuyo, a 3-hour ride from Tulum. Why drive away from paradise? Because of the windy and empty beaches perfect for kite surfing. I feel as long as you stay far away from Cancun, this area is a place I´d love to go back to.
Shop: Selfridges Body Studio
With so many department stores scaling down their lingerie sections, it´s refreshing to see that London´s leading department store has opened a massive new area dedicated to bodywear, swim and lingerie. The Selfridges´ Body Studio is a beautiful airy space with a wide selection of brands. Well worth a visit.
Watch: Eurovision Song Contest
It is that time of year again to gather all of your friends behind a TV with preferably a lot of drinks and snacks and comment on the songs/artists/style/dance moves of the biggest song competition on the planet. And of course I’ll be rooting for our Estonian heartbreaker Jüri Pootsmann with his song Play. Tune in for the semi-finals on 10th and 12th of May and the final on 14th of May. An endless source of lunchtime conversations at our office!
Visit: A Brief History of Underwear Exhibition at V&A
Underwear is getting a lot of attention these days and we’re not complaining at all. This month we’ll be visiting the Victoria & Albert Museum to see their take on exploring the intimate relationship between underwear and fashion. Runs until March 2017.
