Camping, not Glamping!

Camping Schiermonnikoog - Cindy Mangomini

Getting hot in here- Cindy Mangomini

During the recent heatwave I had only 1 thing on my mind: how to stay (somewhat) cool! The workspace in my apartment got so hot that my bikini became my new work-uniform (one of the advantages of working from home!)

Wearing: everything is this illustration is H&M, except for: “lucky” bracelet, Anna+Nina – vintage denim skirt – canvas tote from local bookstore – sunglasses, Sacha.
