Are you ready for your next seaside adventure? Life is better at the beach – we all know that. Get ready for your next trip to the sun with a stylish towel and probably a harness to carry it.

Secured with silver buckles, it can be worn cross-body – leaving you free to carry beachside essentials. It’s perfect for stowing yoga mats too.
And here are some of my favorite beach towels at the moment:

Do you want to know why I love jumpsuits? It is because I can dance in them and that is my favorite part of every party! If I see a dance floor, I need to be on it!
I wore this amazing embellished piece to New Year’s Eve in St. Barths and last week to IWC’s gala «Decoding the Beauty of Time» during SIHH 2017 in Geneva. I combined the look with different accessories for each occasion.
My look on New Year’s Eve in St. Barths: Bethany sequin-embellished cutout bandage jumpsuit by Hervé Léger, Monogramme glittered canvas shoulder bag and cutout leather platform pumps, both by Saint Laurent, cuff and choker with evil eye symbol, both by Chanel, Tonda 1950 Set Clarity watch by Parmigiani Fleurier.

Yes, we’re almost through January and yes, it’s pretty bad: baltic temperatures, dark all the time, hardly anything left in your size in any of the sales. But try not to take it too hard. Instead indulge in the new season and take some bold stripes to fight the winter blues.
I have spent the last week with a rapt, sunny smile on my face, trying to out-cheer these grim conditions with the help of some vibrant colors that you can easily incorporate in your wardrobe.

Bold stripes are trending this summer. If you would like to wear them now, just add a turtleneck for more warmth. This is what I would call beating January!
Or escape to the Caribbean as I did…
