You don’t have to follow every trend. Each year, a couple of new it-pieces come up, and certain styles and colour palettes are new must-haves. In my book, it’s better to pick a few trends you really like and that suit your (body) type, rather than always going with the flow and feeling uncomfortable or even “dressed up”.

One of my absolute favourite trends this year are pool slides. I adore them. The Adilette, once doomed being vulgar, are having a major comeback this year and have been seen on every street style influencers around the globe. I love my red version and am wearing them not only to the beach, but they definitely are a cool alternative to Flip Flops there.
Last but not least, there has been a hype about inflateable pool toys this summer, and I couldn’t resist, so now I’m the proud owner of an inflateable swan named Hermi. And of course, I had to try his floating abilities in my friend’s pool
