LOOK: sheer sweater and tweed coat


Top: Mango (here) - Jeans: ASOS (here) - Boots: ASOS (here)

Coat: Mango Premium (here) - Bag: ASOS (here)


How cool is my coat? The lovely Mango Premium tweed coat is pretty amazing, and I feel as if I'm wrapping myself up in a huge blanket on the milder winter days. The color is nice as well - a lovely contrast to all my black clothing.

There are a lot of new things in this outfit - my sheer, striped sweater, my pointy boots, the coat and the leather/suede shopper. Reason being, they're definite favorites of mine, and they look great in pretty much every clothing situation. How do you like the look?

Hvor sej er min frakke ikke lige? Den skønne tweed-jakke fra Mango Premium er absolut fantastisk! Det føles faktisk som at pakke sig ind i en dejlig dyne på de mildere vinterdage. Og så er farven også enormt fin, og en skøn kontrast til min ellers meget mørke garderobe.

Der er en masse nye ting i dette outfit - min transparente, stribede sweater, mine spidse støvler, frakken og læder/ruskinds-tasken. De er hurtigt blevet nogle favoritter, og jeg klapper mig selv på skulderen for nogle gode køb. Hvad synes I om outfittet?

life lately... christmas spirit


Though everywhere is drowning in christmas decorations and holiday cheer, I'm just not feeling it yet. Perhaps it's my work schedule and my hectic days off, and maybe it's the fact that our house is still missing all the little items, which we usually set out around christmas time. Like the millions of candleholders and the star-shaped lanterns in the two main windows towards the street. We've had those since forever ago, and they're my favorite decorative item we've got - but they're still resting snuggly in a box in the attic.

I'm sure the christmas spirit will manifest soon enough. I'll be wrapping up presents, writing cards and cooking delicious food for when my closest friends come over for a christmas dinner. Until then, I'll open up my newly purchased "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens, hoping it'll set the tone, at least somewhat.

How are your christmas preparations coming along?

Jeg drukner lidt i travle arbejdsdage og hektiske fridage, og derfor har julestemningen ikke helt befundet sig hos mig endnu. Men snart skal jeg til at pakke gaver ind, høre julemusik i massevis og lave god mad med godt selskab - så kan man da kun komme i julehumør!

Indtil da bladrer jeg igennem siderne i Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol", der lige er røget gennem brevsprækken og er landet på toppen af min læsestak. Hvordan går det med jeres juleforberedelser?
