summer lusts:: a raffia basket

i've been silently stalking stores for the perfect summer basket. something neutral, slouchy and roomy so i can throw my sunnies, my summer shawl and a book to read in the park. i spotted a whole bunch in the markets in vietnam, super cute but they were kinda stiff and heavy... but on the plus side, they were cheap as chips!!

but this morning, i spotted this one from net-a-porter.

 and it's killing me!!!
and its fabulous that it has a top handle and a cross body strap to use as a satchel. im zipping around town in my bicycle all the time!! while we're talking about things we're dreaming of... im also in the market for a straw hat (cowboy hat? or a oversized flopsie one?), a retro high waisted bikini and some flowy neutrals and silks and luscious light materials..

what are you after this summer!? :)


  1. Ahhh, is that Mulberry?

    I say colours and more colours for Summer! In, yes, breezy light materials.

    And of course, a bright personality. ;)

    miumiu! :) i can't carry off colours like you can, babe!!

    i tried an orangy red dress and looked horrendous...

  3. ooh ooh ooh! if only one could knit/crochet a bag like that!

  4. Ahhh, that's because orange is such a hard colour for us tanned-skinned to carry off! Maybe you can try canary yellow, cobalt blue and emerald green? Lemme know how it goes! You know I got all the bright stuff from H&M anyway, love! ;)

  5. @gwenstella

    that would be so cool! :) maybe your next challenge! :)

  6. @Yi Lian

    you looked great in them! :) i tried a yellow today in zara. the top was cute but i made it kinda blah! :)

    did you manage to find the celine jade green skirt you were looking for?


leave me a little love note. xx
