I must admit, I’m quite spoilt when it comes to holidays. Having a holiday house in Croatia does not help – what use is it travelling to the other side of the world for 2 weeks? Jet leg would eat up all the fun! It’s a blessing having a job in which I can get away with this sort of sublime indulgence and marry it with creativity (actually it totally rules!)
This summer I visited Croatia extra early as my boyfriend was putting on the For Festival on the island of Hvar.Blessed to have some of my dearest friends come over for it , I donned my awkward tour guide cap on and tried to show them the best of my little slice of Med. We danced , ate , swam and drank delicious wine then repeated until we entered into some sort of Dionysus inspired dream where everything was pure pleasure.
It was a pleasure too having my regular photographer Alice Wesley-Smith on the trip as I pulled a bunch of swimwear to shoot for Vogue before I left Australia. True, I had to coax her a few times to keep working (it is pretty easy to get distracted under the delicious circumstances) but shoot we did and now I am editing 2 separate swimwear stories! In the picture above I am surveying the yacht (and wishing it were mine!) while wearing a Macgraw suit , Zulu & Zephyr one piece swimsuit, Samantha Wills bracelets, Pink Lou Lou gold necklaces and Gucci hat. Keep a lookout for the stories on Vogue.com.au in the next month!
Only a week of holidays left, friends have gone back and instead of installing some sort of sensible health routine into my life, I have decided to go to Italy and eat my weight in pasta, not to mention do a little “research” into the best gelati on offer in Venice .I will sacrifice myself for the greater good and keep you in the loop on this one ; ) …
