Not that I lead a double life, but there is a part of me that isn’t that obvious and has nothing to do with fashion nor high heels. Growing up in Venezuela, I spent most of my childhood in the water; sailing, windsurfing and skiing around every single weekend until the age of 13. My water rat days came to an end when I started living in Belgium, as I couldn’t stand the freezing cold water conditions of the North Sea…
I’ve always had this special affinity with water as my childhood years were exceptional and sea fun & sun were a constant given in my life... so, after a couple of years I started missing my second biotope and I just sought myself a solution, got myself a decent wetsuit and that pretty much resolved the problem.
Believe it or not, I’m an occasional surfer and have been a stand up paddler for quite a while. I spend most of my weekends at the seaside enjoying the great outdoors and from the minute temperatures start rising I jump into my wetsuit and get my booty on a board.
Good news for the kindred spirits as Tommy Hilfiger just launched this ab fab limited edition collection that is all about surf & fun: a great selection of laid-back, après-surf lifestyle pieces that will have you looking beach perfect in a jiffy.
Lucky me, as I was given the possibility to get my hands on some pieces of the Surf Shack collection and I’m totally smitten with the comfortable styles which will make my weekly packing sessions for my seaside escapades a cinch.
Totally in love with the striped Baja-inspired hoodie...
Also on my wishlist: the surfboard-shaped wooden clutch and the surfboard print chino's, genious in every way don't you think... unfortunately not available in Belgium, but do check the online shop from May 15 on as you might be able to score it via the Tommy Hilfiger e-boutique.
To celebrate the launch of the Surf Shack Capsule Collection, Tommy has also launched this amazing competition that offers you the great possibility to win a unique surf trip to the Maldives. All you have to do is Tweet or Instagram an inspiring picture of your endless pursuit of summer & sun and tag it with the hashtag #gonesurfing… Trust me, I’ve been tweeting pics as if my life depended on it, in the hope Mr. Tommy will choose me and take me on an unforgettable trip.
