The snow is gone

1-IMG_0985

It has been unusually warm these past days and all the snow has melted. While I am missing that white cold wonderland, it also gives me the chance to wear my thin shirts and more skirts once again. I do also add more lighter colors to my outfits and am a bit in Spring mood already. Just hope that the heat of summer is still far away as I to love the tights and boots season so much! I wore a simple white and blue combo here with my MichaelKors Bedford being the only pop of color. This bag has been on constant rotation these past weeks and I sometimes have to force myself to not forget about all thos other beauties in my collection. The Bedford Medium Tassle is just the perfect bag for me and I currently don't feel the need for another bag (apart from that Chanel WOC) in my life altogether.

Cold as Ice

1-IMG_0243

When the ground is frozen, walking makes such a nice sound. I love it and I do love winter for it. I also prefer bundling up for the cold over having issues on choosing the thinnest piece of clothing in the heat of summer. Nothing just as nice as layering! Ponchos are a really nice way of adding another layer to a look. They keep you warm and even look a little special and give every outfit a fun vibe, especially with fringes on. They are a bit of a hassle to wear underneath coats though. I never quite get them to stay put and they bunch up under my arms and just make it difficult to wear a coat. This version here has little holes for the arms that turns the poncho into a vest and I love that! I do travel by train to and from work and this vest works nicely as a blanket for my legs when the train is freezing cold (which happens more and more often - who needs aircon during winter?!). I also wanted to use this post to introduce my new purse to you all. It's a little handbag from Aldo that my mom got me during her last trip to Dubai. Just a little black bag with a pom pom. Love it!! Probably won't need another black handbag now, which saves me loads of money as I was thinking of getting a Chanel WOC in summer. Still considering, but it's a lot of money and this little beauty stores a lot more for a lot less!

Winter Warm

1-IMG_1358

Winter is my favourite season! I do love the icy cold and whenever people tell me that they hate winter because it's so cold, I just think that it's really just an issue of wearing the right clothes. I do wear dresses and skirts in winter, but when it is really icy, I tend to wear pants. I do have a couple of warm chino pants and this burgundy one is a perfect pop of color in the dark winter. I added a short-sleeve turtleneck and a woolen cardigan with a furry colar. It is really warm and so comfortable. It does give me a couple of extra kilos in looks (meeew!), but is such a nice and warm cardigan underneath a coat when you are outdoors the entire day and still want to stay warm and not have to wear a fleece jacket. I also wanted to show you my birthday present from Mr.B. He was so sweet and got me a wonderful new watch by my favourite nordic watch brand - Skagen. I have quite the collection now - a silver, a rose gold, a white and now a black and gold one. I love matching my watches to the rest of my jewelry and now can wear this with all my gold and black jewelry.

Snow Princess

1-IMG_1440

You all know my love for the 50s look by now and even though it is ice cold winter, I don't want to neglect my beautiful 50s dresses and skirts. With a nice pair of tights, they are also wearable in Winter. I also got this nice floral number that does scream Spring to me. My parents gave it to me as a nice birthday gift and I just couldn't wait till Spring to take it out on a spin. I wore this look for my grandpa's birthday last weekend and it suited the occasion just fine. Also, look at those snowy pictures! I felt like a snow princess and got quite some looks while we took the photos! Only Queen Elsa's dress is more suited for snow and ice!

The back of the dress and the top part are made of white dotted mesh and one needs to wear a strapless bra to not destroy the look. It is made of a great quality, quite heavy fabric that feels amazing. It has lining all the way and doesn't even need a petticoat to have a nice wide skirt. The petticoat gives it an extra puff. I love this dress and can't wait to wear it in Spring with the cherry blossoms or in Summer for upcoming weddings and parties outside.

Turtlenecks and pencil skirts

1-IMG_0876

A typical winter day for me is a day of tights and a pencil skirt paired with a nice sweater or blouse and a cardigan. Right now we do have half a meter of snow and I am going to work in my winter hiking boots and a pair of jeans, but whenever the weather is a little less like a freezer, I do prefer skirts over denim. I just feel a little more work appropriate, like I do care and take that extra minute to put on something nice when going to work. The turtleneck sweaters just recently caught my eye. I did hate them when I was younger, but now they work well with most of my skirts and I already bought two in the last few months. Let's see, if this lovestory continues. Do you love things in your closet that you hated in the past and now can't live without?
