My Look: Summer Vacation

One of the best brands to wear on your summer vacation is PatBO. I am completely obsessed, amazing quality without being too expensive. Inspired by the beauty and technical expertise of haute couture craftsmanship, Patricia Bonaldi founded her eponymous label with a focus on intricate embroidery and beading. Each design is expertly handmade in the brand’s atelier in Brazil by a team of over 400 local female artisans. Here you see me wearing one of her amazing beach dresses with its unique, flattering silhouette at my hotel, the Byblos Saint Tropez. Doesn’t the background look so South American? I am loving it! In my next life I wanna be a Brazilian girl!

My Look: Pure Yachting

Happy summer day, cruising around the island of Capri… Personally speaking, the best way to experience the refreshing water of the Mediterranean Sea and this magical island is on a boat as you can easily get to the best beach clubs and restaurants that way. We enjoyed swimming in rocky coves and emerald-green grottos and I sported my new bikini for the first time. Enjoy your weekend!

My Look: Barcelona

Greetings from W Barcelona! My fiancé took me on a short trip to Spain. It felt so good to feel the warmth of the sun on my skin after such a long time. Finally, I got to wear my new Dior bikini that showcases the Dior Oblique motif, a House symbol since its first appearance in 1967.

My Look: Shibori & Macramé

Hello beautiful weather! Time to put on some fun pieces. Do you know what shibori and macramé are? My beautiful and super comfy jumpsuit is printed with a Japanese shibori – inspired pattern.  Shibori (from the verb root «shiboru» – «to wring, squeeze or press») is a Japanese manual tie-dyeing technique, which produces a number of different patterns on fabric. Macramé is a crafting technique that uses knots to create various textiles as seen on my bag and shoes. I love the combination of both beautiful craftsmanships and hope you will like it too!

My Look: Cute

A headpiece can transform any outfit into something very cute. You can also wear it to bring a dramatic note to a special occasion. I sported this lace dress last Monday to the event with Dior Parfums and Moët & Chandon at Park Hyatt Zurich. Thank you for all the compliments! Happy weekend!

My Look: Heels Over Pants


I love the new Bottega, so many cool pieces that can elevate your looks to new heights. My favorite barely there sandals that wrap around the ankles have already reached cult status. I love this clever styling trick (see trouser tuck) which means no more tailoring needed. For more sandals like those, visit the previous post here.

My Look: World Dance Day

Today is World Dance Day, a global celebration of dance, that takes place every year on 29 April. Ever since I was a little girl dance has always been my favorite sport.

When house cleaning sucks, especially with no help during quarantine, I love to dress up, put the music on and dance while doing chores. So much more fun and thanks to my new noise-cancelling headphones (for more infos, see yesterday’s post here) nobody gets disturbed.

Let’s face it — It’s more productive to clean the house while singing and dancing to a catchy tune.

Here is proof that leopards and snakes can get a long very well. I adore mixing animal prints and hope that you will, too. In my opinion, rain gear couldn’t look any prettier.
