fancy friday

Happy Friday to you all! The lovely weekend starts here, and about time too… I’ve been working my little socks off this week before I’m off on my travels next Tuesday. So much so, my usual round-up this week consists of one notion: a holiday. Even though I’ll be abroad, my trip will be a blur of airports, hotel event space, delegates and ‘to do’ lists. But, had it been an actual holiday on the agenda, then it would consist of breathtaking views, an infinity pool, a good book (trashy chick lit – I have no time for solving crimes whilst sunbathing) and zero technology. And absolutely no schedule. Apart from cocktail hour, which should always be observed.

And since we’re amongst friends, and I’d like to keep this fantasy alive for just a few more minutes, here is my dream capsule wardrobe, courtesy of Net-A-Porter. And if I’m going to be travelling in style, then I couldn’t possibly show up pulling a beaten-up old suitcase that has lived in my closet since 1992, so it would have to be Jimmy Choo luggage all the way:


{1. Eugenia Kim straw fedora / 2. Victoria Beckham aviator sunglasses / 3. Tibi maxi dress / 4. Juicy Couture crepe dress / 5. Jimmy Choo Terence suitcase / 6. Valentino espadrilles / 7. Missoni Mare bikini / 8. Musa t-bar sandals / 9. Monica Vinader ring / 10. Textile Elizabeth & James denim shorts / 11. Kenneth Jay Lane bangles / 12. Yves Saint Laurent raffia tote / 13. Sandro t-shirt}

Ok, back to reality (although we’re talking Cannes, so not completely) and this week’s best look goes to Penélope Cruz, who looks like a modern-day Audrey Hepburn with her hair styled like that… add a touch of Marchesa and the result is flawless. Pure movie star. And for my room of the week? Well, to stick with the theme of this post, just imagine whiling away a morning in this dreamy breakfast room, devouring fresh coffee and croissants. Sound pretty appealing?

I hope you have a perfect weekend whatever you’re doing and wherever you may be…

    This reminds me of our pre-holiday shopping trips to Bay Trading in the 90s. (The Net-a-Porter of its time) It also reminds me of my past holiday wardrobes involving far too much pink, a worrying amount of flammable material and some stuck-on roses. I’ll be using {whatyoufancy} for some tips this year :)

    Love the breakfast room. We could do some good sitting in there xx
