Summertime Sadness | theModeCode


“A late summer shoot on a backyard in North Amsterdam. Smell of non-vegetarian hotdogs, fake flowers and an ice-cold kids pool to enjoy the last sunny day before the leaves start to fall and cover us in mustard yellow, khaki brown and burgundy red next to the evergreen black&whites and its 50 shades. Check my retro recap and get inspired by my colourful ear-clips with matching vivid lipsticks. XO

|Wearing: Micky Mouse printed white sweater from Mango; brown vintage head scarf and ear-clips; thin brown leather belt from Esprit; coral orange pointy flats from Mango; high-waisted bandeau bikini printed & made by my 2-hands back in Italy | cute and tiny colourful wooden bird houses from Kwantum| “Let’s begin with this wrap! Microwave roasted sausages from a can were just laying gracefully on the BBQ, showing off their sunny side up to remind me, how much I adore my hand-picked veggies from the market on Sundays next to my favourite Fisherman stand at Albert Cuyp, in South Amsterdam.”



|Wearing: pink bikinis from Triangl Swim; pink vintage ear-clips (yes, I am true fan of these); printed loose pants from Vero Moda; a soft pink envelope bag from Mango, black sunnies from Weekday and red lack heels from Zara| “And when nobody has arrived – not as if anybody was invited – I decided to enjoy my fat bubbling Coke with the sun-dried baguette and smile at the neighbour across, who just felt entertained the whole afternoon while cutting his enormous tree on his side but starring at the other way…”



|Wearing: white tailored shirt from H&M; my souvenir sunhat made of recycled paper, that made me believe it was straw though; Ally oversized tote bag from Paul’s Boutique and a green palm leaf printed high-waisted bikini from H&M, cork wedges from Mango;  besides my pastel orange ear-clips and pearl bracelets| “By the afternoon, I felt a bit green and blue so I felt like switching from pink the leaf print. Moreover, these sun hats – that I caught my eyes on found my beloved holiday in Gran Canaria –  I loved a lot last summer, I always knew how to style it for a casual Friday or touristy Sunday afterwards.”



| Wearing: navy blue-white striped oversized shirt from Esprit, blue-white striped cropped top from H&M; baby blue-white check patterned bikini from Esprit Swimwear x Caroline Blomst Capsule Collection; white comfy slippers from H&M; destroyed denim jacket from Mango; my lovely white Hattie duffle bag from Paul’s Boutique and my white pearl ear-clips part of my collection|” The pineapple pose .. I am sure, many of you did  # it for a ‘couple of times’ next to the coconut drinks during Coachella. I could also not leave it out either, but to spice it up I kept the emerald green plastic garbage bin in the background to give a little flavour to the picture and keep it more stylish, than ‘trashy’ .”



|Wearing: retro sunnies from every.day.counts.; abstract printed cover-up printed made by my 2 hands in Italy; bronze bandeau swimsuit from Esprit x Caroline Blomst Capsule Collection and my polka ear-clips| “For last but not least, I did jump into the kids pool to freshen up my sweet memories of sun-kissed cocktails, salty water, hot breeze and lazy summer days well spent with my loved One.”
