Pool-Side Prettiness

I don't know about you but I much prefer
being by a pool than on the beach.

Maybe it's that you end up finding sand everywhere
days after you have left the beach?

Or maybe it's because you always get
the kids that want to play football pitch
up right next to you?

I'm really not sure, but I do know you can give me a luxurious
pool any day and I will take that.

When you are poolside, you can go a little more
glam than when you are at the beach, simply because 
you haven't got to worry about sand and sea water
ruining your things.

I like to go for tropical brights and tutti-frutti accessories when
I am by a pool.
Here are some of my favs:

Towel: Louise Vuitton
Sparkly flats: Zara
Kaftan: Matthew Williamson (Net-a-Porter)
Kensie turquoise earrings:  here
Floral Glasses: Dolce & Gabbana
Angelina Stacking Bangles: here
Liberty Print iPad case: here
Liberty Print Tote: here
Lara Pomegranate Earrings: here
Dixie Pink Stacking Ring Set: here

So there you go Lovelies.
Which are your favs?
Also would love to hear if you are  
a pool or beach babe.

Have a lovely week


  1. Same as you honey, I much prefer to be poolside although I really think we should do a day at the beach this year! x

  2. Vannessa I'm with you! I'm definitely a pool babe, too bad my hubby doesn't feel that way too!

  3. I love the water any way it comes: beach, pool, river, lake. :-) But I do love the peace and solitude that comes with a private pool. I can truly relax then. I love those sunglasses!!!

  4. I'd say I'm both! I'd love to have a pool all the time...oh, man that would be bliss and every once in awhile go to the beach but it's got to be a beach I'd love like Venice or Malibu Beach. Lovely post Vanessa. :)

  7. Hey great stuff, thank you for sharing this useful information and i will let know my friends as well.silks saree

  8. I completely agree Vannessa, I can't handle going to the beach and much rather be at a poolside anytime, love this beautiful inspiration board and the aqua kaftan. Your comments are much appreciated, have a great Friday!

  9. I'm back from my travels to your former stomping grounds Vanessa! Thanks for the hot tip on the churros and chocolate which we devoured in Barcelona. We adored Seville and I realize that was your adopted home at one point. Lucky lady! As for me, I'm both. I'm happy beside or in the water. We have a pool at home and I love that with the heat here in Northern California summers. Beautiful images! Happy summer!

  10. very inspirational post, for sure!
    kisses and wish you a wonderful week!

  11. Vanessa I love your new header and your beautiful photo!! HOW did I miss these changes? I've been an overwhelmed blogger lately. Can't quite seem to catch up on my posts or my visits with my dear friends. I seriously need to be lying at this pool (love the ocean view but hate the salt water) with a icy Margarita. Or maybe a super fattening Pina Colada. I hope you're doing well, my friend, we're moving this weekend into our home. Finally.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Your comments make my day!
