Summer in the city

Hello my friends! Hope that you are enjoying this hot summer. Here is my proposition of 4 complete looks for long, summer days. What to wear to look stylish, yet comfortable, during these long, hot days.

1. Flowy dress and a chic straw hat

I am in love with this Diane von Furstenberg green dress, it is tight at the top and then falls loose. Little bow in the upper side adds a little bit more details to this simple-cut dress.

I paired it with straw hat from El Corte Ingles

Dress- Diane von Furstenberg

Earrings – Chanel vintage

Clutch- Ellie Saab

Sunglasses- Prada

This look is more sophisticated and colorful. It’s perfect for afternoon tea in one of the hotels close to the lake or quick shopping on Rue du Rhone.


Location: Hotel d’Angleterre and Bronzette

2. Polka dot dress

This look is ideal for spending day by the lake or at one for the beautiful Geneva terraces/ rooftops.

Traditionally polka dots are used in the clothing of flamenco dancers (and traditional Spanish dresses) and you can see that influence below in the Dolce & Gabbana’s 2015 SS collection. It’s a typical doll dress and bows on the shoulders makes the look very feminine.

Dress- Dolce & Gabbana

Necklace – Chanel

Sunglasses – Prada

Handbag- stunning Kelly28 Hermès


Location- Bronzette

3. Boho-Chic

This Boho-chic look is just perfect for a stroll in the evening or apéro by the lake. I am very much in love with the dress from Zimmerman, it has hippie influence but fabrics and details make it very chic.

Dress: Zimmerman

Cuff and necklace – Chanel

Sunglasses – Gucci

Handbag- Louis Vuitton Metis in raspberry color

Shoes- Raph Lauren wedge sandals in brown color.



Location- Place de la Navigation

4. Chanel Chic

This is a look for days when you would like to stay indoors and enjoy the cool air-conditioned beautiful interiors.

I am wearing:

Dress – Chanel Handbag- Chanel Reissue 2.55

Shoes- Chanel

Cuff and earrings- Chanel


Location: Easwest Hotel Geneva
