Share This

Summer Holiday in Munich – Every summer, when I visit Munich for a long weekend, it brings back cherished childhood memories. The city has a special charm in July. I spend my days with friends in the English Garden, taking a refreshing dip in the Isar, and savoring relaxed dinners on outdoor terraces and gardens. When night falls, I cycle through the city, embracing its beauty. These are the core essentials I always bring with me:

1. Violette Boum-Boum Milk

This cream spray has become a must-have for my travels. I apply it to my face, and sometimes even my hair and body. It’s a magical mist that combines toner, serum, and moisturizer, providing a refreshing boost throughout the day. (£67, violettefr.com)

2. Louis Vuitton Coussin PM Bag

For the past six months, this bag has been my faithful travel companion. The wide detachable strap and chain make it versatile. During the day, I wear it crossbody while cycling, and in the evening, I remove the strap and carry it as a clutch. Surprisingly spacious and designed with a padded “cushion” style, it discreetly holds all my belongings. (£3,400, louisvuitton.com)

3. Adidas x Sporty & Rich Samba OG Sneakers

Recently, I discovered Sporty & Rich, a lifestyle brand that originated as a mood board account. Although the brand name initially struck me as odd, I admire what founder Emily Oberg has created in collaboration with Adidas. I purchased these sneakers from the online marketplace StockX, and they effortlessly complement any casual summer outfit. (£187.50, theeditldn.com)

4. Toteme Flare Fit Jeans

Finding a pair of jeans that fit well, are comfortable, flattering, and don’t gap at the waist can be challenging. However, these wide-leg, high-waisted jeans are a perfect match for my body type. The cropped length adds a touch of summer flair. (€260, toteme-studio.com)

5. Yasmine Eslami Ana Swimsuit

SPF is a non-negotiable for me, no matter where I go. Currently, my favorite is this non-nano zinc oxide facial sunscreen by Lesse. It not only moisturizes and protects my skin but also leaves no white film behind, thanks to its delightful texture. ($85 for 60ml, lesseofficial.com)

7. Wardrobe.NYC Kimono Jacket
