I didn’t plan to match my outfit’s colors to the fading beauty of this autumn’s last days, but somehow I’m glad I did. There’s a certain melancholy that veils this time of the year, with its dark skies and crisp weather and I can’t believe we had the last of what was an incredibly beautiful fall. On the bright side, the countdown to Christmas begins as of now and I CANNOT WAIT for it to finally arrive. Hope everyone has a great week ♥
I know how everybody must be feeling about the plaid print at this point. It’s literally everywhere and for as much as I promised myself to stay away from everything that’s overdone and over-worn on the streets, I still couldn’t resist it. My wardrobe needed a pop of red, I needed a shirt that would allow me to layer once the weather would get super cold, and so I abandoned the fight. I wear a lot of black on a daily bases, so it feels great to be able to add a dash of colour, and print to my basic, off-duty outfits. Case and point: the following pictures. This is how I envision comfort and these are the first things I grab whenever I have to run out of the house. Hope everyone’s enjoying a lovely weekend, we’re off to a family lunch! Love ♥
Funny thing how I always believed that red lipsticks weren’t made for me and now I feel like wearing them with nearly every outfit. They clearly go hand in hand with the beautiful autumn colors, especially when worn with black eyeliner and a classy trench coat, neutral hues and a touch of lace. Despite strongly believing that a trench coat is a timeless piece, one of those essential items building a woman’s classic wardrobe, I never found one to suit my body, or my style. I guess when choosing this one from Persunmall, I finally stumbled upon my luck as I love its gorgeous color, its light weight and the playful pop of leopard print going on underneath.Wishing you all a beautiful week ahead and thank you for reading ♥ ♥
New week, new outfit post, new to-do list, new challenges, more black, more bows. Some days it does feel hard to keep up with everything, especially since all I feel like doing these days is hide under a blanket and read. Those of you following me on Insagram already know that my Valentine’s Day gift arrived earlier (read I stumbled across my gift and ruined my Fiance’s surprise), during the weekend more precisely and that I received a lovely Kindle, along with a selection of books that I’ve been meaning to read for so long. Only the best gift in the entire world if you ask me ♥
After what seemed like a busy, busy week I finally found some free time today to get out and enjoy the little things I love, like an afternoon walk, the crisp air and the hot tea that makes this season extra special. As the city is getting ready to light up for Christmas, I just realized that my favorite time of the year is getting so close now. I remember the years when I would start the countdown to Christmas all the way from October, and I remember my excitement growing with every passing day. This year instead, the last three months flew by so quickly that I barely had time to catch up.
Yesterday was another one of those chilly autumn days that required warm knits in order to make the inevitable transition to the colder season a little bit easier. Of course I didn’t surrender completely, as I still wore 1/2 sleeves and my summery lace shorts, but I didn’t regret feeling slightly cold. Also you might notice that my hair was half-braided for some of the pictures, but for an inexplicable odd reason I can’t seem to feel comfortable wearing my hair like that. It’s like not having long hair at all so I ended up releasing it. That’s something I’ll have to deal with, because I really want to experiment in the hairstyle field also. I love it when other bloggers play with their hair so effortlessly and always end up looking beautiful.
