Destination / Wish You Were Here

Wish you were here: love, Natalie

Island dreaming to island living. Chasing the sun for days on end: the best kind of holiday escape.

Escaping …
Fantasising about a tropical getaway no more. This year my family and I will be packing our bags and heading to Hawaii. On Waikiki’s shores, this trip will cover nothing more than exploring the beaches, saltwater swims, watching the sun set on the horizon and enjoying quality time with the ones I love most. My island home.

Essentials …
Sandy feet and sunkissed skin, truly the best holiday wear. However, those Hawaiian ocean swims call for Matteau, paired with a Merlette summer dress. I’ll be taking morning walks in my Zeus + Dione slides and Helen Kaminski straw bag. To keep me protected from the sun’s rays I love a wide brim hat like this one from Communitie Marfa, and Ray-Ban retro shades.

Celebrating …
This family trip has been a long time coming, to celebrate a milestone birthday (21) for my beautiful mum. Sipping on cocktails, adventures through the islands and eating to our hearts’ content. There is no better way to welcome in the New Year and set the tone for what will be an amazing 2017. Days gone by.
