My first Christmas in the Netherlands (and in general actually, since back home we don't celebrate Christmas at all) and it's been nothing but fun all around - getting a tree and decorating it together, all the stores play happy holiday songs, santas in the streets and yummy olie ballen everywhere ..what can I say? it's a magical holiday and it really lights up the city and brings warmth where it sure is needed!
I would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and a great and exciting new year:)

Sweater & Leather

I have a thing with leather, it doesn't have to be real but I just love it, it makes everything look more rock n' roll. I always prefer it black because that's just the color that compliments it most but Zara's new collection has really put leather in the spotlight this winter and combined it with everything and I mean EVERYTHING- from t-shirts to sweaters to wool coats and tights. The store looks like an S&M shindig...
Anyway- this sweater is really cool because of the contrast between the over-sized coziness and the fitted sleeves that actually look like long gloves (which I was planning to get myself anyway), especially when worn with leather gloves, and with this weather now I really need any cover I can get!
