Dreaming of these infinity pools, indefinitely.
Having both lived across the ditch and one of us currently still we have a lot of love for our Australian counterparts. One of my favourites is Zimmermann, especially when it comes to those summer days. When I think of beautiful floaty summer numbers I cannot go past australian label Zimmermann. Such a recognisable aesthetic, they stay true to the brand each season. Started over 20 years ago sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann have developed a brand which is synonymous with Australia especially Sydney. Their current Swim/ resort has some beautiful pieces and prints which I am in awe of.
Australian designers are going from strength to strength in recent years with the likes of Ellery showing in Paris recently. One teaspoon is another one of Australia’s well known labels. You can spot their shorts a mile away and that is hard to do with denim. A more recent australian brand, Lack of colour, focusing on beautiful shapes and techniques to make the classic hats like the fedora and for the warmer days the boater.
It is quite hard to look though these photos and resist the urge to book a flight back. There was so much about Greece that I loved, the food, the people, the ocean. We spent about 3 weeks in Greece last year and 5 of those days were spent in the volcanic island of Santorini.

That barely there lifeline, such a thin piece of fabric is the only thing that keeps you from loosing it all. The spaghetti strap takes me back to the 90’s.
She is most properly the most internationally well known New Zealander Designer, Karen Walker. Who recently celebrating the Karen Walker eyewear range’s 10th birthday in Sydney. She shared with Vogue a few insider tips for those budding designers. One of those points stayed with me.
The beautiful Cinque Terre town of Vernazza below.
Most definitely one of my favourite spots that we discovered during our Summer Europe trip in 2013. Yes, this is way over due, over a year since myself and my man backpacked across Europe. We were based in Genoa and had planned to see the old fishing villages of Cinque Terre (we ended up calling it Cheeky Terry, we were told to many different variations of how to pronounce it) and Portofino. Cinque Terre such a beautiful and popular place but we couldn’t go past Portofino, so much so we cut our trip short to Cinque Terre and rushed back to our swimming spot in Portofino.
While Portofino is known as an upmarket holiday spot with luxury yachts dotted throughout, we found it to be small quiet and relaxing. Such a lovely place to explore with the historic coloured buildings, beautiful restaurants and the swimming spots. There is one image of Portofino I must of seen a million times and that was our swim spot.
I would go back in a heartbeat.
