How are you? Hope you had a good start into the new week?
It's the last week before Christmas, it's unbelievable how time flies! I still don't have all presents, I've only had three or four cups of mulled wine on the Christmas market, which is definitely not enough, I've only made Christmas cookies once and I haven't crafted anything christmassy at all this year. I think Christmas markets and the whole advent season should start much earlier so everyone has enough time to do all the typical things. Instead we end up hurrying through the first three weeks of December with barely any time to enjoy it, don't we? Or am I wrong and it is just me?
Anyways, I guess I shouldn't complain too much because despite the daily grind and the additional stress of buying Christmas presents I still found enough time to squeeze in some nice shopping sprees and coffee dates with my boyfriend to show him all the good coffee places in Düsseldorf. I will miss that when he goes back to Australia, but I'm also looking forward to doing this with him again when I go there.
I wore this outfit on Wednesday when I had the day off. The weather is really mild here at the moment, pleasant winter temperatures and no icy winds, so I try to wear my summer dresses as much as possible. It's so nice to just throw on a pair of thermal tights and a cardi with the dress to wear it out in December.
I bought this one on my Prague trip because I loved the denim look and kitschy romantic rose print. I think I'll wear it a lot next spring. There is a magic about the colour combo of yellow, blue and pink, it's instant happiness on fabric for me, so I made the whole outfit extra-cute and fun with the quirky necklace.
By the way, before you think the global warming has taken over: just so you know, it's not warm enough here to go out in a dress and cardi, I still had to wear my winter jacket and a scarf to leave the house.
Aaaand - secret trick and good advice - sheep wool inlays in my shoes to keep my feet warm despite the thin rubber soles.
Have a lovely day everyone!
