Back home

After re-visiting winter in the Alps last week, it feels good to be home again. We had an unbelievable amount of snow, usually a rare commodity at the end of April. Wonderful of course in one way as all pistes were open, only that we were stuck in the middle of snowstorms half the time. There was one magical day though, with clear skies and the most amazing powdery snow. It was pure bliss.

The fair weather gear stayed untouched most of the time, but I was glad that I took an infinity scarf (from Hermès' men's collection, 100% cashmere) with me, which was truly warm and cosy when wrapped around the neck several times.


It feels lovely to be back in spring, even though the mistral wind is blowing blossoms into every direction.. today wearing my scarf in an ascot knot, with the ends tied behind the neck!


Hope everyone is enjoying a lovely weekend x

  1. Welcome back dear MaiTai! Enjoy the return to spring, and hopefully the Mistral will die down soon. The ascot knot sounds perfect for the windy weather. Alas, here we've had endless rain..

    Have a lovely week,

  2. So glad you had lovely family time out even if it was a bit blustery. Very impressive icicles!
    No snow here luckily, just neverending rain, so I am back in GMs (small consolation). Here's hoping for warmer and drier weather for you and me.

  6. Sorry, my dear.

    I meant "let´s hope" and not "let´s home".

    1. Au revoir to the winter wollies! The big season changes are always such fun, and the promise of switching activities, eating different meals and wearing a different set of clothes is such a happy outlook. For that reason, I love spring and autumn just the same. Autumn hugs to you x
