When it's cold and grey - wear red!


It's no secret that I love Winter. Snow is my element but Winter often brings lots of cold and grey days as well. I am not the biggest fan of those dreary days and try to brighten up my outift with color to make this more bearable for me. My favourite color for the cold Winter months is red, a bright fireengine red, often with a blue undertone. I add it into my outfits mainly through accessories, but I've also got several pieces in my wardrobe, like this blouse, that make for a wonderful pop of color. What's your favourite color to wear during Winter or do you have other tips to brighten up a look during those grey Winter months?

Snow Snow Snow


I am the happiest person in snow! My favourite about winter is the white fluff on the ground and we finally live in an area that get's some snow during Winter. Of course, it's a bit of a hassle when driving and it can get pretty cold, but I am still a Winter person! I love dressing in layers as well. For this outfit, I wore my trusty pencil skirt, a striped shirt and a lot of nude and light pink woolen pieces. Perfect look for the cold season.

Winter is in town


Winter is my favourite season. I am a winter child, was born in January and love me some snow. I always wish for snow during Christmas, but these past years, we almost never had snow for that wonderful time of the year. Luckily Mr.B and I moved to a small village in the mountains last summer and this also means more snow!! So while everyone in my old hometown is dreaming of those white fields, we got them right in our backyard. It's beautiful, but of course brings some hassles as well, like to shovel snow. But Mr.B grew up with that and says it's a good workout, so I rarely have to do it myself. The snow makes for a great backdrop though and I got inspired to show you more outfits on this little blog once again. It was a bit more quiet here in 2017, due to our move and missing time, but I feel a lot more inspired now and want to get into a more frequent rythm once again. So here it goes, my first snowy post for 2018.


I wore my pretty tartan skirt by Vivien of Holloway and added a cardigan by the same brand to the look. Red and purple/green work really well together and that cardigan is an awesome staple in my wardrobe. I do need to add a couple more to my closet, as they got so many pretty colors. The wintery look wasn't complete without a woolen hat and scarf. This set was handmade by my mom. She is such a great crafter and I love all her knitted things. The brooch is something special that gives the cardigan a little something something. It was given to me by my mom and she got it from her mom at some point. Definitely a nice hand me down. I'll treasure it forever.

Red, black and gold


When in doubt, wear some sparkles - that's my mantra! I do love dressing up for the festive season and plan my pretty looks in advance, but when I finally want to put the looks on, I often gravitate towards something much more comfortable, but then feel sad to give up the festiveness of the outfit. This skirt though brings back all the sparkles to any simple look. I have worn this particular outfit for several occasions this past festive season and switched it up just a bit for New Year's Eve as well.   The red shoes are my new favourite pair of heels. I do have this style in 5 different colors now as I do love the fit of them and for about 25€ you can't go wrong as they are so comfortable as well. The bag is my other favourite that Mr.B got me for Christmas. Definitely a smart choice and so pretty for upccoming events.

New Year's Eve Look 2017

After celebrating the wedding of Mr.B's sister in this amazing dress by LindyBop, I decided to get it in red for Christmas in the Black Friday sales. They sent it to me quickly, but it did arrive labeled wrong. I got one size smaller than I wanted. As the dress was on sale, shipping it back would have been quite expensive AND after it was all settled with the refund the dress was out of stock. Thankfully, I could keep the mislabeled dress and it just about fits. Might have to loose a couple of pounds for it to fit nicely, but I still love it. Added some sparkle to the look and wore my new golden bag that Mr.B gifted me for Christmas! Perfect Christmas Day outfit, but would also look very nice for New Years Eve. 
With that I wish you all the best for 2018! We will celebrate with friends and our little cat is hopefully not too scared by the fireworks.





What I wore
Dress & Jacket: Lindy Bop
Bag: TKMaxx
Headband and Belt: Zara
Shoes: Deichmann
Tights: Esda
