This year, I am bombarding you with sunny looks as I cannot wait for summer to arrive. Here you see me on my favorite island St. Barths just recently. I had lunch at one of my beloved spots, Le Toiny. Feet in the sand, great food, super service and you can chill at the beach later. My love for this Caribbean island won’t stop as I will be revealing a very special collaboration soon…

Crochet Bikinis

Crochet Bikinis

Crochet bikinis are one of the biggest trends at the beach. Those new summertime must-haves lend a certain boho vibe to your look, they are the new neon and are taking over the beach, especially here in St. Barths.

Get the look: Crocheted cotton dress and crocheted cotton printed triangle bikini, both by Emilio Pucci.

The brand that has caused the hype is KIINI. Designed by Turkish-born Ipek Irgit, the label is loved for its bohemian aesthetic and vibrant, playful pieces. Each bikini is inspired by the designer’s global travels and is hand-crocheted for the most flattering, comfortable fit.

My Look: St. Barths

Sandra_Bauknecht_St-Barths_Emilio_pucci

Today’s post is dedicated to one of my favorite Caribbean islands: St. Barths. It offers everything, from peaceful moments to glamorous times,from fantastic restaurants to great beaches and amazing water. Not to forget the landing. Arriving on the island in one of those small planes is truly legendary as Gustaf III airport on St. Barths is one of the most dangerous airports in the world.

Here you see me leaving from my boutique hotel, the Manapany (Uma Thurman stayed there at the same time), to the Cheval Blanc (which is owned by the LVMH group) for lunch.

My look: Colourful bikiniicon, matching pareoicon and clutch, all by Emilio Pucci, suede and wooden clogs by Miu Miu, cuff by Stella McCartney, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellerypearl embellished sunglassesnecklace and earrings, both by Chanel.

Back to Blogging after a Great Trip

Back to Blogging

First of all, I would love to thank everyone who sent me a message wondering why I have been absent from blogging. The reason was I truly needed some digital detox.

Sandra Bauknecht

Those who are following me on Instagram might have seen that I had been traveling extensively over the last two and a half weeks. I flew directly from the shopping spree in Abu Dhabi to New York City, stayed there one night and left via St. Marteen to St. Barths for the Bucket Regatta. After that I went to St. Kitts to explore the newly opened Kittitian Hill resort that focuses immensely on sustainable vacations, followed by a stopover in Miami and a few days in Bermuda.

Now I am back filled with great memories and adventures that I am happy to share with you over the next weeks! Below are some little previews…

St Marteen 2

It takes only 15 minutes to fly from St. Marteen to…

St Barths

St. Barths. The landing is definitely spectacular due to the view and its famous short runway.

Enjoying the Bucket Regatta and the ASW boat party at the same time…

Kittitian Hill2

Next stop: St. Kitts

Farm to Table - Kittitian Hill

Belle Mont Farm is Kittitian Hill’s first luxury five star hotel. Situated in 400 acres of tropical farmland, you enjoy spectular views, great service and the most amazing food which is prepared only with locally foraged ingredients. Did you know that as a ASW members, you are granted a complimentary 7-night stay in one of the charming guest cottages?!

Salt Plage St Kitts

If you are in St. Kitts, don’t miss one of the island’s hot spots: Salt Plage. The perfect place for a sundowner.

Miami

A stopover for a night in Miami.

Villa Bagatelle-Miami

I stayed at the newly opened Villa Bagatelle, which is the first hotel in the wildly successful family of Bagatelle bistros. A great place to party in the heart of South Beach.

Bermuda-Sandra Bauknecht

My last destination of my trip was Bermuda which unfortunately was slightly chilly. The water is insane due to an incredible clarity and color.

Now, you might understand why I had been offline. Sometimes, you have to sit back, relax and just enjoy with your eyes…

LoL, Sandra
