Pictures by James Vyn

PALMS As you might know, Montreux is one of my favourite places to rest, relax and hang around with James. All we care about when we are there are ice creams, sunsets, cocktails, long walks by the lake a lot of joking and having fun. That’s what holidays are about isn’t it? Speaking of which, I can’t believe those are coming to an end in just a couple of days. My friends are already returning to studies, luckily this year only I won’t be concerned since I am officially on my year off. Why did I took an entire year off from school/university? Because I believe that sometimes in life, some amazing opportunities show up and it is good to take chances, to dream, to enjoy and to follow your heart. That’s what I decided to do and I am so gratefull that I had the actual opportunity to make that decision. My blog brought me so much, and I feel like I have learned so many things out of this whole experience, that I felt the need to give it all for kayture during one year at least. I want to see where this road will lead me and simply enjoy the occasions which will show up. James and I are so happy and motivated, obvisouly it felt like the best decision ever.

So of course, I am already checking up universities for next year : afterall I am also so excited to continue my studies, I’ve always loved learning and the whole studies experience! I simply can’t wait to start. But one thing at the time right, it’s good to live Carpe Diem sometimes. It’s the best way to enjoy every bit of life. And I am sure that this blogging experience will bring me so many amazing memories, it’s the chance to make new friends, meet new people. Yep, all I can say is that I have loads of motivation… So back to the pictures, we shot these in Montreux. This place gives me such an incredible energy and positiv thinking, it’s the perfect spot to recharge batteries. It is like a little paradise hidden in Switzerland. For the outfit of the day I wanted to do something very classic and neutral but I am not sure if these are the right words to describe this look. It felt like the perfect combo for a day out in the city at least and I must say that I had a huge crush on this zebra print skirt, and yet today I am not so sure about it : let me know your thougts!

I’m usually not a huge fan of zebra prints but it actually looks really nice on you Kristina. It may come from the fact that you’ve toned it done with this pretty black blouse and those cute accesories.
Good luck on your year off. I hope it will bring you even more success. You trully deserve it. You’re a real source of inspiration and seem so down to earth. I’ve been following you for a while now so I can’t wait to see where Kayture is going to bring you. It’s great to be able to follow our dreams not everyone get this opportunity so enjoy it as much as you can.

Beatiful Pics…I like Pizza because I’m Italian:)



I love your blog, you’re inspiring me to open my blog because you create your own trendy style using low cost pieces and I love it!
Bloggers like Chiara Ferragni are amazing but they have so expensive pieces in every look and it’s hard to afford them.

these photos are so amazing Kristina! Every time you post pictures from Montreux it makes me wanna go there too!

and you shine in the photos, like always!

Beautiful pics

Gosh, I need to go to Montreaux sometime. Beautiful pictures & look of course!

Montreux seems to be a haven. Enjoy the day, carpe diem, Kristina! Bisous :*

I actually really like the way you combined your zebra skirt to the black blouse! A winner combo I would say xxx

Beautiful, love the bag!

Love red itch animal print. So pretty do

Skirt is beautiful! love your bracelets ♥♥

Выглядишь прекрасно)Это место настоящий рай)))

J’adore la tenue! Et c’est super que tu prennes une année “sabbatique”, tu as raison d’en profiter c’est sûr, en tout cas tu as tout mon soutien ;) en espérant qu’elle te réserve mille et unes merveilles, et encore plein de belles choses sur ton blog!

Bisous de France,


I just looooove your bag dear! You look wonderful!

beautiful photos, looks great! <3

Je pense que tu as tout a fait raison de te laisser une année pour réfléchir à quelle voie prendre concernant tes études. En un an tu as le temps, de grandir, de te poser et de souffler un peu. Ton blog, auquel j’imagine que tu consacrera une bonne partie de ton temps (pour mon plus grand bonheur) deviendra plus beau que jamais.
Je te souhaite le meilleur, et bravo pour ton blog tu es superbe ! xxx

Amazing fotos, and you like always so beautiful!!!


you are so beautiful

So gorgeous, I love it :)

I have the same ring and I’m loving it!

Gorgeous photographs as always! And definitely keep the skirt – it’s a statement!

Love the colors in these photos! You look gorgeous! And I completely support your decision to stay off school for a year. I’m sure your blog will bring you lots of opportunities and you won’t regret it.

the pics are beautiful as always! love your bag!

Bright, colorful and beautiful photos! You look amazing! Zebra skirt, blouse, bracelets, shoes and bag fit you! You chose very elegant but casual outfit!)

Everything about this post is amazing from the outfit to the scenery to the food! Kudos for taking time off and exploring. That takes courage and it’s something you’ll never forget. :)

Kisses, Rebeca
If you want, make a visit to my blog! Hope you enjoy!

La jupe te va bien, avec les talons et le motif zèbre ça rallonge tes jambes :)
Tu as bien raison de prendre une année pour ton blog, ça t’apportera surement énormément. Et tu es jeune, tu pourras très bien reprendre tes études plus tard !
Comme tu le dis, parfois il faut vivre carpe diem !

Good photos. Your outfit is beauty. :)

I think it’s a great idea to have a free year after the end of school. I did my final exams this year, too and in a few weeks I will find myself sitting in university. Yes, I’m a workaholic. But I’m really looking forward to see what you will do in your free year. I hope you will keep being motivated like this the entire time :)
The zebra skirt is great! I think you made a great decision to buy it. It fits great to your style :) xx

Beautiful pictures! Looks like fun!

Check out my new blog The Closet I Love!

you are definitely the most beautiful blogger i know ;-)

I think you’ll have an amazing year! I wish you luck with everything! I love your bracelet btw :-)

wow great look. love your bag!

These pictures are so pretty! I do like the zebra skirt, but I would only wear it with a black blouse like you did, to still make it look chic.
I’m really jealous that you got to take a whole year off before going back to your studies, that’s amazing :)

You`re soooo beautiful :) And I love this bag!

Absolutely gorgeous!!!

Beautifull!! Indeed very tropical!!

xoxo lorena

Sometimes you just have to take a risk and trust your instincts in clothing. Your outfit looks fabulous! So cool to hear you know what you want to do in live :) I’m also gonna take a year off next year (well after I graduate university, one more year to go), I recognized so much of myself in your words. So great to have an inspiration like you.

So you decided to take a gap year in which you are only going to blog and wait for opportunities to show up? I’m sorry, I just find it completely shallow… There are so many wonderful things you could do: travel, work, learn different languages, do volunteer work, etc. I hope you make the most of your gap year, so it won’t be a total waste of time.

you’re always so gorgeous! i love how the red bag is contrasted on the other colours of the outfit!
Unicorns, Heels and American Dreams

What do you have on your lips, it looks like the perfect nude colour! I need one for when I got back to school! what would you recommend? x

Thanks again for the article post.Really thank you! Much obliged.

je tombe sur cet article maintenant… tu as bien changé depuis tout ce temps… c’est drôle ce que tu dis ici, de prendre des renseignements sur les universités, et que cette expérience de “blogging” va sûrement te laisser de beaux souvenirs… tout ce que tu as réalisé depuis…! tu n’imaginais sûrement pas te retrouver à L.A aujourd’hui…
par ailleurs, j’aime beaucoup cette jupe zèbre:)
