Summer Ready

Ready for Summer by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

Yes, I know we’re still dealing with spring here in Paris (which I absolutely adore so don’t get me wrong!) but I’m so excited for summer I think I’ve already started preparing just a little bit. During the summer I usually feel the need to get away from Paris for a while, simply because the city is located in the middle of the country, which in other words mean: no beaches or no sea in sight. That’s why I love escaping to Italy for a few weeks and why I will do so this summer again. A friend of mine pointed out that she doesn’t even remember when she saw the horizon last and it makes me sad to think that I can’t either. So bring on the salty water, ice cream cones and days spent with my feet in the sand!

    I need a holiday when looking at this picture!! Absolutely loved the colours in Oysho!
    Bring on summer :D

      Haha me too ;) YES!

  • Marianne

    I was thinking the exact same thing: I miss the sea! Don’t know when I’ll be able to see the warm one though, I’ll probably head to Normandie or Brittany and not Italy haha. Love your bikini btw, Oysho always make such beautiful things! I could buy everything, even the sports clothes xx

      Me too. That sounds lovely though. I’d love to go there since I’ve never been!

    Love those sandals :)

    I live in Florida, so it’s nothing but summer! I miss seeing autumn and spring, but I don’t really miss winter all that much.

    Have an amazing time in Italy!

    I have been loving softer colors for spring and summer like whites and blues. Also, I really think you should get away! You have been busy, busy, busy :)

    • Paris in Four Months

      Me too :) Haha, thanks.

    I just purchased a new pair of sunnies in anticipation of summer. I’m looking to spend plenty of time near the salty sea, breathing in that captivating fresh air. We live about an hours drive from one of our all time favorite beaches (Cannon Beach). I can’t wait to eat nutella crepes while walking along the shore, stuff our faces with the greatest clam chowder from Mo’s and then walk the beach all over again…

    • Paris in Four Months

      Ah, I saw them. They looked so good! Ohh, that sounds so so lovely. You’re making me long for summer even more!

  • Meghan

    That bikini is gorgeous. Great selection.

    I love the dark blue bikini and sandals! Doesn’t seem like I can get my hands on the swimwear, but I think a visit to Topshop is in order – those sandals are PERFECT for summer!


    • Paris in Four Months

      Yay, happy you like them :)

  • Siham Hamdan

    That’s just my type of sandals! I wish we could have a longer spring where I live, it’s mostly summer all year :( X

      Me too!

    I think grass is always greener on the other side. It’s really hot and humid here and I couldn’t wait to get some cooler fresh spring air. LOL! Summer is always fun with the bikinis and sandals. Oh, and not forgetting the tan. Can’t wait to see you summer pics =)

    • Paris in Four Months

      Well I think I’m summer person and I hate all kinds of cold. Maybe since I grew up in Sweden and I’m fed up with it by now ;) Thanks!
