The Ecuadorian capital city located in the middle of the world, standing proud between cloud-high in the Andes and two active volcanoes, Quito didn’t disappoint me. The 16th-century Centro Histórico (Old Town) is not only the largest and best-preserved colonial center in Latin America, but also the most visited.
Thanks to KLM and Air France, the approx. 15-hour journey from Vienna to Quito was a wonderful experience. Click HERE to read about my journey.

If you visit the Greek island, Crete– a day trip to Rethymno (or Rethymnon) is a must. It’s one of the best preserved medieval towns in Greece and was once a bastion of the Venetians who left a mighty legacy– the large Fortezza (fortress).
The town was also ruled by Turks for a time so you’ll find a scattering of Ottoman mosques, a Hamam peeping from behind 16th century buildings.
You can choose visiting Rethymno for a relax day on the nearby beaches, or explore the historic center and enjoy the hidden cafes in cute cobblestone streets.
While wide-leg pants are nothing new, they’re still coming back every season in different styles and fabrics. Finding the perfect wide-leg pants that provide versatile styling options, and doesn’t require any effort in the morning. For the FW21 runaway shows designers presented different styles, cuts, colors, and lengths of effortlessly chic wide-leg pants. From really relaxed silhouettes and long hemlines, you can pair the different pieces even with a simple white top and still look stylish.
Here I am wearing my favourite wide-leg pants by NEHERA, and I love pairing them with a simple top, to crochet tanks and crop tops to matching blazers and bold accessories. I find it perfect to wear from the office to Saturdays spent at the museum and beyond. Here are few styling notes:
Fall brings cooler weather and depending on the location, some places have more humidity or dry cold weather, which causes dry skin. Since I live mostly in Vienna, in October weather significantly drops and it becomes windier in fall and winter. Therefore, my skincare routine changes, so I love to apply layers of serums and moisturizers to keep my skin more hydrated.
Finally it slowly feels like we are getting back to normal. Today, I am extremely excited to re-start the fashion category on my blog with a new exclusive brand— NEHERA.
NEHERA is an independent Slovak brand that is reviving the legacy of the famous brand that was founded in the 1930s and made history by impeccable design, quality, manufacturing and retail around the world. The craft tradition of the Slovak textile industry goes back to the first clothing factory, which was founded on the European mainland in Prostejov, the hometown of Jan Nehera, in 1868.
