OUTFIT: back to floral brocade

OUTFIT: long coat + Gucci princetown floral brocade slippers | Bikinis & Passports

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)….

OUTFIT: when the sun comes out to play.

Four Seasons Resort Mauritius - Bikinis & Passports

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…

OUTFIT: white wide-legged palazzo pants | Bikinis & Passports

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….

OUTFIT: the padded bomber.

OUTFIT: camisole over shirt | Bikinis & Passports

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….
