My Look: Sneakers & Dresses

If you spent your childhood in a pair of Converse or even Nikes, you already know, the right sneakers can make a statement. If you pay attention to the proportions, dresses work well when paired with just the right comfy footwear. And not only will you earn major style points for thinking outside the box, but your feet will surely thank you. Here you see me wearing this kind of look on my way to the Maison Sisley in Paris.

My look: Olwen cutout printed cotton-jersey dressicon and Falabella faux brushed-leather shoulder bagicon, both by Stella McCartney, embellished metallic sneakers and aviator-style metal sunglasses, both by Gucci, earrings by Dior.

My Look: Boho Garden

Perched on a hilltop in Provence, St. Paul de Vence is well worth visiting. Walking through the narrow streets of this little old medieval town with its modern and contemporary art ateliers and galleries is absolutely beautiful. The flowers, the roses, the gardens, you feel the bohemian vibes in every corner. If you’re an art lover you should already know that Marc Chagall lived his last years there and that he’s buried in the local cemetery.

My Look: Ibiza

Greetings from Ibiza! I was so happy to sport my new book clutch I got at the Eden Being Cabana Pop-up Boutique for the first time on the Spanish island. Wearing new pieces always feels great, doesn’t it? Time to shop, ladies!

My look: Polka-dot cotton dress by Dolce & Gabbana, Betty bow-embellished suede platform sandals by Saint Laurent, embroidered book clutch by Olympia Le Tan for Cabana x Eden Being, pearl embellished sunglasses and earrings, both by Chanel and golden cuff by Stella McCartney.

The straw hat «Be Bagatelle» is a gift from Bistro Bagatelle, one of my favorite places around the world when it comes to partying, great food and fun with family and friends. They have just opened their spot in Ibiza and it is absolutely worth going there!
