The French have a lot of tricks when it comes to keep cool during summer.
Close the curtains, do a little nap, drink a glas of rosé (or two) and relax.

What do you do to keep cool?

On my last trip to Paris, I fell in love with Jean Didier Georges. It’s the name of the cozy blue room at the adorable boutique hotel “La Villa 1901” in Nancy, France. The host Isabelle has turned the former family house into a luxurious hideaway and named the rooms after each of her kids. Love the touch of vintage, the colours and all the little details. So relaxed and sophisticated. Perfect! Argh, I really need to go back there.

It’s Monday and time for a little post.

Time flies and I can’t believe it’s almost the end of September. For me Autumn has always something magical. It’s not only the time of fashion week and revolutions. It’s also the time of starting school, university, a new job or moving to a new country. The air smells like changes and I am getting a little nervous and uncomfortable.

Getting inspired by the wind of change – I started working on my new website and than I was up for more! Something that couldn’t wait! I have ex-changed my wardrobe! So Bye bye Summer dresses and sandals. Welcome Cashmere!

… and what has changed for you?
