Is it just me or does it feel like Spring is starting to make an appearance? Before our trip to Mauritius, temperatures hovered around 0°C, but it was all uphill from there. I am not a fan of Winter and by the time we’ve made it through February, I am officially in Spring-mode. Bare feet and all. That’s why it was high time to bring out my Gucci Princetown brocade slippers again (last seen here)….
I’ll be honest with you guys, for me personally, sunshine is a big must when on vacation. I know that you can’t control the weather, but I can’t deny the fact that rain always gets me down when we fly 10+ hours to escape the Winter in Vienna and end up sitting in downpours. Mike and I seem to have a magical attraction when it comes to rain fall. We experienced the rainiest and coldest January in Mexico in the past 20 years, we had rain on 5 of 7 days for our first trip to the Maldives and we just returned from Mauritius, where we got stuck in a stage 2 cyclone and were kindly asked not to leave the house any more and to stock up on water supplies…

One of my personal must-haves for tropical getaways and summer vacations is a great pair of wide-legged palazzo pants. Or two. While I love patterned options for a more laid-back holiday vibe, a simple pair in white is the safest bet, if you ask me. White is the ultimate summer color and works well with all most materials and patterns. I don’t even remember how often I have worn these pants over the last few years….
Shop the Look
I think we can all agree that we are over warm coats and ready for Spring – who’s with me? While my heart says leather jacket and light bomber, the weather in Vienna doesn’t seem to be on the same page just yet. That’s why I decided I needed a little something new in the coat & jacket department. Warm enough to deal with temperatures around 0°C, but with less fabric than an oversized coat….
