Yesterday evening we arrived in paradise and I can already tell, I don’t want to leave this place anymore! During my holiday planning phase I did not even know where we should even go to, so I asked around for some tips. That’s when I heard lots of good words about the beauty of the Algarve, the south coast of Portugal. Now that I am effectively here, I know what they were talking about. Can’t wait to have a relaxing start of holidays at the beach later today but first I need to explore our hotel which is placed in the middle of an incredible garden. Pure nature – pure beauty! I am happy and satisfied!

While in Switzerland it is raining cats and dogs day for day, week for week I feel even more blessed to have a time-out of that endless rain and fill up my vitamin D while working on a sun-kissed skin. How fun I have these photos to share today, taken a while ago in Switzerland at another one of the mentioned rainy days as obviously visible in the pictures. Although the ground is all wett it doesn’t discourage me from wearing skirts and heels. Luckily at least the temperatures are warm enough to do so.

Sweater: Zara (old, but similar!)

  37. Ein ganz genialer Look, der mich aber leider schon an den Herbst erinnert. Steht Dir wirklich hervorragend. Ich wünsche Dir einen wunderschönen Urlaub – das klingt alles sehr traumhaft…. und ich hoffe, Du kannst die Sonne genießen. In Bayern ist das Wetter ähnlich wie in der Schweiz… Regen, Regen, Regen und so wirklich warm wird es nicht :-(
