It’s tougher to look chic in winter. Certainly when you run cold very quickly as I do.

No surprise then that I covered myself in layers (as I showed you recently) and turned to knee-high boots for warmth and comfort.

This was one of my favorite outfits. 

The blue poncho was so soft and comfortable to wear and I could put up to 3 layers underneath!

I also embraced wearing scarves again. The touch of silk and these fun patterns and color delighted me daily.

I had some fun trying out new winter clothes in the shops too. Here I’m trying two fabulous coats. I actually bought a similar leather jacket to the one I’m wearing which is very light weight and can be worn on its own. I will show you pictures of that soon!


Here is another coat I absolutely fell in love with. Did not buy it though since I only need a coat once a year for a few weeks. But how gorgeous it is!


Here I’m not wearing one but two (!) woollen jumpers. With my warm winter coat from Zara, I was ready to go outside.


My friends Anja and Greetje looked fabulous too.


I have not yet shown you the burgundy jacket that I wore a lot of the time too. Coming up soon!
