My Favorite Picks for this Winter Season

    It’s been years since I no longer follow what is trendy when it comes to fashion. I might stumble now and then of a style or something that caught my eye, but even so, I am considering purchasing it if I know I can use it for multiple years. 

    Here is my list of favorite items that I plan on getting the most use out of during the cold season.

    1. A red cape

    I got it from a Hungarian traditional fair and it has their signature embroidery on it. The small shop created the piece manually and the details on it are amazing.

    I plan on wearing it to a bit more formal events and enjoying the Cruella de Vil vibe. 

    2. Timberland boots

    On the casual side, I got two pairs of Timberlands boots, one in the classic camel color and one in dusty pink. 

    I find them the perfect mix of edgy and urban and they are my go-to option for snowy days.

    3. Velvet dark green dress

    Green was never my top pick even if I adore it as a color. I am not sure why I was never drawn to it, instead, I went for the blue and black more. Yet when I saw the gorgeous design and the pop of color, I fell for it immediately. Cannot wait to take it out to a date night out. 

    4. Wool cardigan 

    This might be the trendy piece from my list, but I have to say I love the chunky style and the way it looks especially when paired with (faux) leather pants. Since it’s made in a local shop with natural materials, it’s also very warm and comfortable.  Already worn it a couple of times and I already see it being a great investment. 

    5. Teddy coat 

    Although I have had it since last year, I started to really use it now. My almond milk faux fur coat is perfect for sunny days when it’s very cold outside.

    Love to pair it with (faux) leather pants or dark-colored jeans and boots.   

    Whatever you decide to go with this season, make sure it represents who you are and feels good wearing them.

    After two years of quarantine, I do admit I miss the old days when I would dress up to go to work, now I just have to make the most of the events from the weekends. Since the holiday season is here, I plan on making the most of it.

      Iuliana!!! 💖 I am in love with the Red Cape outfit. Handmade clothing is the best and this piece looks amazing. And, I agree with Silvia about thinking before you buy. H&M is soooo over for me! 👎 Fast fashion in general.

        Thanks Julia  . Indeed, fast fashion is the worst, especially bad for the environment and for their workers, but also because the pieces are poorly made and will disintegrate after a few washes, even if you love something, it's still going to be short lived.

      Loved reading your thoughts, luliana! Especially the last para resonated with me where you've said, "Whatever you decide to go with this season, make sure it represents who you are and feels good wearing them." It is so important to feel good, and to feel confident in whatever you choose to wear. That's my mantra of styling I always stick to! Thank you for sharing your amazing picks. I am in love with your red cape.. so so gorgeous  And you look amazing in all the pics <3

        Thanks, Epsita   . I totally agree with your mantra, fashion should never be all about looks, it might be or look perfect, if you don't feel confident and comfortable is useless.
