&Finally

Photographs by Moeez Ali

&Finally is the brainchild of Anna Rosa Vitiello and Florrie Thomas. The two fashionistas met working at Harper’s Bazaar UK (Anna a writer, Florrie a stylist) and became best friends. Last year they left their positions at the glossy magazine and launched &Finally together, where it quickly became the go-to website for accessory lovers. 

We were thrilled when they agreed to show us how they styled their Marysia Summer 2018 pieces during their stay at Hotel Les Roches Rouges on the French Riviera. You don't have to trust us when we tell you they didn't disappoint- just take a glance at their photos below and you will instantly see that they were #borntovacay.

 

AND FINALLY 1

 Marysia is…

ANNA:
Swimwear I’ll wear forever (so long as I can keep pasta sauce off it.)

FLORRIE: 
The chicest way to do swimswear- pieces that you will love now and forever due to their classic simplicity.

 

AND FINALLY 2

What are your favorite pieces from the collection?

ANNA:
The Santa Clara Maillot: it’s an understated one-piece with subtly feminine touches that I’ll wear time and time again. I adore the mid sized sun hat - wearable, packable and still dramatic enough to transform your beachwear.

FLORRIE: 
My favourite bikini has got to be the Antibes top and Santa Monica bottoms in toffee, the more tanned  (and toffee coloured!) you get the better it looks. I also love the super wide brimmed hat, perfect for hiding behind.

 

AND FINALLY 3

You were able to pack some of our Lola Hats x Marysia collaboration, what did you think?

ANNA:
They’re the perfect mix of glamour and understatement; somehow they feel dramatic and laid back at the same time - hair up with the visor and a sportier suit, or hair down and hat tied under your chin for a more dressed up look.

FLORRIE: 
It’s so cute! It feels like the perfect marriage of the two brands and the styles are fun but still easy to wear and each will suit a different girl.

 

AND FINALLY 4

Tell us your packing secrets!

ANNA:
Pack in outfits - it will help you see which are incomplete and what’s currently in your packing list that is unnecessary. I’m not strict about it - outfits change according to your mood, of course - but it is an efficient and organised way of packing (for me, anyway.) Oh, and don’t forget tonnes of SPF!

FLORRIE: 
My mum always taught me to count the number of days I'd be travelling and then pack rough outfits for each day. I’m much less organised than she is, but I do try to follow this so I don’t end up with lots of things that don’t work together. Then I throw in a load of accessories to mix and match.

 

AND FINALLY 5

How did you style your Marysia resortwear on vacation?

ANNA:
One of my key packing items is a chic, easy beach dress, and the San Salvador tunic is just that: I love the neckline and for lunch, will tie it at the waist to create a silhouette and finish the outfit with some chic tan sandals. The Montauk pants are another favourite: I sometimes wear my Marysia one pieces as bodysuits, and throwing these over makes for the perfect tonal outfit.

FLORRIE: 
The resortwear works equally perfectly thrown over the swimwear for days on the beach or lunch in a chic restaurant. I love wearing mine with some classic leather sandals and a few pieces of my favourite jewellery. 

 

AND FINALLY 6

Where is your favorite spot to vacation?

ANNA:
Ischia, Italy. It’s lesser known - and therefore less busy - than some of its more famous neigbours (Capri, Sicily) yet just as beautiful. The people, the food and the scenery are all stunning and it’s also a short boat ride away from my family in the suburbs of Naples. I adore the Mezzatorre Hotel - it has so much character, and watching dolphins play in the distance over breakfast isn’t bad, either.

FLORRIE: 
You can’t beat Europe in the summer! I went to Panarea off the coast of Sicily last summer and spent a week in little boat, just with my boyfriend, cruising around the tiny islands. That was pretty much heaven.

 

AND FINALLY 7 

Tell us about Les Roches Rouges!

ANNA:
Imagine a Slim Aarons set in real life, and you’d probably dream up Les Roches Rouges. It’s as beautiful as the pictures say it is.

FLORRIE: 
It’s such an aesthetically beautiful hotel but the vibe is very relaxed. The food is simple yet delicious and days are spent lounging by the pool or diving in for an ocean swim.

 

AND FINALLY 8

Any more tips for a trip to the South of France?

ANNA:
Take a drive and discover some of the coast line’s hidden beaches - there are so many in the most unassuming of places and they’re worth visiting for the scenery and serenity.

FLORRIE: 
A road trip! There are so many different places to visit, each with their own personality. Go and see the glamour of Cannes, go to Grasse for the perfumeries, Aix for the culture, St Tropez for the clubs, the list goes on!
