don’t let the sun go down

While Ibiza is mostly known for it’s parties, there is also so much more to the small Spanish island. Idyllic coves, sandy beaches and amazing food awaits. One of my favorite spots on Ibiza is definitely Cotton Beach Club. A stunning white interior, delicious sangria and an even better view are the perfect reason to visit Cala Tarida. We headed to Cotton Beach Club for a late lunch, and then rented beach chairs to spend the remaining afternoon down by the water, waiting for the sun to set. The sunset in Ibiza was literally one of the most stunning ones I have ever seen, and the atmosphere by the beach was magical. But see for yourself:

OUTFIT: palm trees & paisley prints

Last week, Kathi and I took off for a few days of sunshine. A short but sweet trip to Ibiza was the perfect way to say goodbye to Summer, recharge our batteries a bit and explore the beautiful island. While I am currently back at the office, wearing multiple layers, including a thick sweater, I’ll try to hold on to those warmer days a bit longer with the posts coming up this week.

First up: One of my favorite looks from Eivissa. Paisley prints are usually something I try my best to stay far away from, but these wide-legged pants have turned out to be a big hit in my closet this Summer. Fun fact: I purchased them in early April, with the thought of how perfect they would be for Ibiza. Little did I know I’d be wearing them on the island just a few months later. I love a touch of boho, but think it is important to balance it out with sleeker items, which is why I paired my new silk blouse by JOUUR with the pants and layered necklaces.

CRAVINGS: autumn arrival

After a few last warm days in Ibiza this past week, I think it is safe to say that Autumn has officially arrived. Back in Vienna, we were greeted with pouring rain, windy weather and cooler temperatures. While I am definitely sad to see Summer go, I have to admit that I am getting a tiny bit excited about Autumn fashion with chunky knits and skinny jeans being back on the agenda. Especially since my new sneakers finally arrived last week – after a little sizing mishap. I was so excited to find the ones I mentioned in these cravings in my size, but unfortunately they run really big and I had to go and hunt down a size smaller. Long story short, they’re waiting for me at the office tomorrow and can’t wait to make an appearance this Fall!

RITUALS: goodbye stress…hello me-time

As exciting as traveling and constantly being on-the-go can be, it can also take a toll on our well-being. Too little sleep, irregular meals and changing environments are not always easy on the body. Which is why I think that it is important to create some “me-time” every once in a while. In a fast-moving world, we should all slow down sometimes. A few months ago, I shared a similar idea and my Monday ritual with you guys, and today I wanted to show you some snapshots taken in my hotel room in New York. I love taking some time for myself, no matter if I am at home or somewhere in the world far away from everything familiar.
