But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
Linn Eklund is the co-founder of Hobnob Journal and a notorious traveller. I would say that nobody does vacation dressing like Ms Eklund. This is how she’s planning on doing her summer style this season.
This summer I am all about hats, dresses and socks in sandals. But if I go to a fancy party (or when really, I live for summer parties) I will toss the sandals and go for the classic Hangisi satin Manolo Blahnik. But over all I wouldn’t say my summer style is very different from my all year around style. I always go for crazy patterns, bright colors and lots (I mean LOTS) of accessories.
Dress, Dolce & GabbanaHeels, Manolo Blahnik
I have a few really see-trough dresses which I love to wear when it’s too hot to function. I wear them with only black underwear (or a bikini if you like) to parties, brunches or just in the city. People will turn their heads, but hey it’s summer #lovesummerhateeverythingelse.
A book bc this summer I really want to read more. I want to say that I will leave my phone at home since I want to learn how to have fun without it you know, but I probably won’t. Besides that I always bring a face mist, my favorite one is from Björk & Berries, SPF 50 of course, you are stupid not to and my new Loewe hat. All ready for a day at the beach! I always bring wine money too, but that goes without saying.

“I will never wear pants again”
S:t Tropez for the people watching and party and Ibiza for the beautiful surrounding and hippie vibe (NOT for the party). I really like Formentera and the food there.
Dresses, Lisa Marie Fernandez.
I actually wrote about my luggage situation for my last trip, but I’ll take it again since packing is a good hobby of mine. I always try to bring as light weighted clothes as possible (maybe bc I bring so many shoes??). I mainly pack dresses since that’s what I prefer to wear. When I go for city vacations during fall and winter I love to layer up, but on summer vacation I layer down a lot. I hate being too warm.
Pants probably. Every summer I always say, I will never wear pants again!!!!! and then I do. So typical.
Bikini, Lisa Marie Fernandez
Over night masks! I can’t travel without it. It helps my skin recover during the night and it’s a miracle working if you happened to brun.
