Jumpsuit for the Evening

Pictures by Inès Monnet In my previous post about my 3-day stay in Stanglwirt, I mentioned that the marketing manager Maria invited us to a gourmet dinner on the first evening.

Pictures by Inès Monnet The 5* Stanglwirt Bio-Hotel in Tirol, Austria invited me to stay 2 nights with them. Except for a beach, they offer everything you can possibly wish for in a wellness resort in the Alps – a charming atmosphere with local yet modern décor, great food (including gluten-free and vegan menu), gym,… Read More »

Love for Jeans

Pictures by Inès Monnet I am so fond of these Zara jeans that since I got them, I haven’t worn other styles. Lately I have also enjoyed playing with colors, styles and prints. Here I style it with a cropped babydoll top, a scarf tied around my arm and a stripe of color across my… Read More »
