Fog and faux fur

fashion, lifestyle

This weekend we had a beautiful morning where I live. Last Friday we had the first snow, followed by a very cold night, resulting in a beautiful foggy morning.

Those are the days why I love this time of the year. The fog creates a fairy tale like scene everywhere you go, it’s like you’re playing a part in ‘The lion, the witch and the wardrobe’, minus the snow that is.

When I was in England a few weeks ago I got myself a super soft light grey / light blue’ish coat. I was torn between getting a teddy coat or this one. Traveling with carry on luggage only I had to make a choice! #ugh

When it came to my criteria ‘oversized’ and ‘warm’ this one was clearly the winner and thus mastered itself one of the very scarce places in my suitcase.

Curious? Let’s go!

Now tell me, apart from Christmas, what’s your favorite part of this time of the year?
When we were done shooting this look, I sure was ready for a nice hot drink to get some sensation in my fingertips again!

Note to self: add gloves to winter wardrobe from now on!

Coat: Primark

28. When life gives you lemons

fashion

For today’s post I thought it would be a good idea to explain the name of my blog – About life and lemons – a bit more. I always had the feeling it was pretty clear until I had to explain the saying to my colleagues a few weeks ago because none of them knew what it meant.

And since it was completely new to them, I might be to you as well!

So About life and lemons comes from the saying “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. Meaning: Add some sugar to the sour and bitter things in life to turn them into something sweet and positive.
