My summer style

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.

My go to pieces

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 & Gabbana
Heels, Manolo Blahnik

My hot summer day knight in shining amour

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.

In my beach bag this summer

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”

Ultimate summer destination 

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. 

Dress, Loewe.

Dresses, Lisa Marie Fernandez.

In my luggage

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. 

What I always bring but never wear

Pants probably. Every summer I always say, I will never wear pants again!!!!! and then I do. So typical.

Bikini, Lisa Marie Fernandez

My beauty summer hack

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.
