Summer Essentials …

An Australian summer is a hot and humid affair. I’ve searched high and low and found the most chic and stylish items to keep you cool this summer.

Slip on a shirt (or kaftan, or dress, just cover up, OK)…

Turkish towels are great things to have handy, they have a multitude of uses. I use mine for towels, lightweight blankets, tablecloths and on my bed.
