I love everything about the summer.
Even the heat. Perhaps, most of all the heat. The warmth of the sun. The ‘summer holidays’ planning. The packing. Endless possibilities all brought about and experienced under a loving sun. My recent trip to Rio, and my stay at Villa Santa Teresa transformed the beginning of my summer and embellished it with breathtaking beauty which rendered me in awe of its landscape, beauty, and just like any other time, its people. I remembered how fundamental it was too my mindfulness, and wellbeing to take a break. Stop. Think. Feel. All under a breathtaking Rio sky.
Accompanying me throughout my days was the Massimo Dutti
collection, which by now is a staple brand of my gentleman wardrobe. Considering the temperatures Brazilian summers can reach, packing easy lightweight and breathable material was fundamental. The Massimo Dutti
collection in earthy, pastel colours reflected my laidback and relaxed self, during this rejuvenating holiday get-away. Simple lines in block colours with an occasional holiday-must have blue and white stripe top enable me to strip down to my core basics and re-energize my soul.
So lets raise a glass to taking breaks, reflecting and bouncing back fresh into life! Discover the Massimo Dutti
