Home LIFESTYLE & TRAVEL Fashion Hello Summer. We’ve been waiting for you.

Hello Summer. We’ve been waiting for you.

This gold Double Pebble necklace is a wear-all-Summer-long accessory. Wear alone, but it’s also the perfect addition to the current layered necklace look. There’s a single version with just the gold-plated brass pebble (R380) but we fancy this one, which has a labradorite stone too. R490 from themakerycollection.com

Can you feel how the energy in the air is changing? A new season, a new attitude, new alternative options to old favourites. One of these is the continuing shift to exploring alternative beverage options …. we’re talking lower alcohol and less sugar. So if the trendsetters are to be believed, and we have no reason to doubt them, Symmetry Botanical Tonics are certainly going to be the popular choice this season. Not only is the range alcohol-free, but the tonics also contain a quarter less sugar compared to regular versions … so bye-bye secretly counting calories! The range includes citrus, spice and floral tonics – each the perfect balance of savoury, tart and bitter. Simply mix 50ml of the tonic with between 150 and 200ml carbonated water and enjoy as is or use as a mixer.

If island is your style, you’ll love these coconut palm and tropical pineapple hooks. A decent size (18 cm high), they’re handmade, so they’ll have those lovely variations and imperfections that make them so special. R385, from pilgrimagespaces.co.za

If you’ve been to Bali, you’ll have seen these gorgeous Balinese Ceremonial Umbrellas … which are used on ceremonial occasions and religious festivals. Decorative and beautiful, you’ll find this sunshine yellow umbrella and stand on pilgrimagespaces.co.za for R3350

We’re completely besotted with these Coral Scalloped vases and bowls. Empty, they’re eye-catching, sculptured pieces of art to show off. But you can also fill the vase with blooms, the scalloped bowl with a delicate salad. They’re top of our decor Wish List this Summer. R529 and 495 from woodkainteriors.com

For a beach wedding. Or a Maldives holiday. Or a glass of bubbly on Sunset Rock. These may well be the most beautiful earrings we’ve ever seen. Imported from the Bahamas, these Hops and Buns earrings are limited edition, cost R1800 a pair, and can be ordered via bloomfieldbespoke on Instagram. Swoon!
