Style Story: In a princedom, by the sea

There is no sound here but the rumbling waves…


Nicole is wearing:


  1. Chloé two-tone crepe wrap top, Chloé oversized crepe wide leg trousers.
  2. Céline striped top, vintage Levi’s, vintage fisherman cap.
  3. Organic by John Patrick trench coat.
  4. Petit Bateau t-shirt, A.P.C. coffee bean bikini top worn underneath, A.P.C. high waist wide leg jeans.
  5. A.P.C. cropped striped t-shirt, Lisa Marie Fernandez ‘poppy’  bikini bottom.
  6. Jacquemus J’aime La Vie t-shirt, A.P.C. coffee bean bikini bottom.


Beauty Notes: There’s no place better than the beach in July. Nicole, having grown up on the Australian coast, is no stranger to the sea. Sam kept her makeup simple with beach basics - lightweight broad spectrum based sunscreen that hydrates and protects, lip balm with a tiny bit of color (also with SPF, even better).


The look is polished off with a coat of water resistant mascara and some light cream based eye shadow, which works better in hot humid weather than powders. A champagne bronze toned shadow gives a slight shimmer that brightens up a sun-kissed face.
