MWW: Travel Style

I'm heading out on Saturday morning, to... wait for it, The Seychelles!!!! Yes I am so excited. First, my husband and I are dropping the little one off in Germany to stay with the grandparents and then the two of us are off to enjoy the sun with all of our closest friends!!! I cannot wait! I haven't had a beach holiday in lets just say a really really long time. Close friends of ours are getting married, yep not a shabby place to tie the knot, so this was the best excuse for a holiday! I've been planning out my holiday wardrobe for some time now. I'm so ridiculous when it comes to packing for holidays, but this time round I was determined to pack light and super smart. So I've put together a board of some things I've decided to take on my trip. I wish I had a photo of the dress I'm wearing to the wedding cause its cool, but I'll post pics of our trip later when we are back. 

Here's to my great holiday!

From left to right

  • Anthropologie Garment Dyed T-Shirt- I bought a white one, it's the softest thing ever!
  • Gap High-rise Skimmer Jeans- Definitely need a comfy pair of high waist skinnys for the plane ride over and while we are in Germany.
  • Zara Long Trench Coat- I have one very similar, a great travel coat
  • Aldo Valleria Black Sandals- Just purchased these, they are so comfy and literally look good with everything I am taking!
  • ASOS Straw Basball Cap - I have a vintage one very similar to this I'm taking.
  • Tallulah and Hope Kaftan - I have a green one that is stunning, can't wait to wear it!
  • Zara Gold Sandals - Wearing these with my very Missoni looking maxi dress to the wedding
  • Longchamp Le Pliage Backpack - Perfect backpack for holiday!
  • The White Company Light Grey Striped Bikini - I have the worst time finding the right swimsuit. I can't tell you how many swimsuits I tried before I finally came across this beauty! It actually fits and looks great on!!!!
  • Aesop Boston Travel Kit - I'm a huge Aesop fan, so can't leave home without it!
  • Accessorize Flower Crown - I have one very similar I bought at a Royal Wedding Party and I still love it! It's definitely coming with me!
  • Love Wrap Mini Dress - Wearing to the get together the night before the wedding with the Zara Gold Sandals and the floral headband!

Our Easter Weekend in Pictures

This last weekend was so so lovely. It was really nice having the husband around for two extra days. We hadn't really planned anything but in the end we did loads of things. Kew Gardens on Friday, painted our hallway on Friday night, Easter egg hunt on Saturday, Sunday Roast with friends on Sunday night at ours and Monday, some shopping and chilling in the garden. It's amazing what you can get done in a weekend! Here's some photos of our lovely weekend!

Thursday Love: Louise Misha

Louise Misha was born in Paris in 2012 by two friends, AurĂ©lie Remetter and Marie Pidancet. Their love for vintage and all things nostalgia became their creative inspiration behind the brand. They see Louise Misha as the heroin of an old black and white movie. They wanted the name of the brand to be personal and stay with the vintage and nostalgia theme, so they chose to use the name of one of their grandmothers, Louise and Misha the nickname of their mother. Throughout the collection you find the beauty of vintage inspiration, pastel colours and lovely designs. Your little one is bound to love the whole collection! And their accessories are perfect for the Easter basket.

Mama Wardrobe Wednesday: Xenia Joost

I am quite in love with some pieces from Xenia Joost Spring Collection. The Estonian designer has created a collection draped with a springtime essence and silhouettes full of volume and ease. I definitely would love to wear some of her pieces. Truly beautiful!

Inspirational Monday: Tim Walker and Rhea Thierstein

I am a huge fan of Tim Walker. His magical creations are a representation of just how creative people can be, absolutely insanely amazing minds at work. 
Here are some of my favs from Tim Walker. Fitting as Easter is just around the corner. 

Tim Walker has worked along side set designer Rhea Thierstein creating his outrageous masterpieces. Freunde von Freunden just did an interview with Rhea Thierstein, have a read, it's really great. Together they are such an inspiration to me and I wanted to share some of their masterpieces.

I'm Loving Swankaroo!

Here at the Ekardt Casa we are huge backpack fans. If we had the space we would probably own a different backpack for every outfit. Edith has even taken a liking to backpacks too. So when I came across Swankaroo, it was a match made in heaven. All the way from California, own and designer Kendra Oakden realised her diaper bag was becoming a bit cumbersome with all necessities for a day out, but then realised her little one could wear a backpack with all her things. She thought finding a cute backpack for her daughter would be simple, but unfortunately not. So she decided to make a simple but eye catching bag for her daughter and from that point on Swankaroo was born! It's amazing how great brands come about, it just proves that not everything exists yet. Well, I'm sure happy for Swankaroos! Check out their amazing bags here:
