Nämä farkut jakavat varmasti mielipiteitä, mutta itse ihastuin niihin heti kun näin ne upean Sorayan yllä. Onnekseni löysin farkut Zaran nettikaupasta, joten ei muuta kuin tilaus menemään! Farkut näyttävät mielestäni kivalta talvella pitkävartisten nilkkureiden kanssa ja kesällä avokkaiden parina. Säärien pituutta nämä eivät kyllä korosta, mutta ainakin farkkujen korkeavyötärö kompensoi lahkeiden lyhyyttä. Huomasin muuten, että nämä mokkanahkaiset korolliset bootsit ovat palanneet & Other Storiesin valikoimaan. Ne ovat todella hyvät jalassa ja aivan ihanat muutenkin, eli voin suositella niitä lämmöllä!

Puhuin eilen äitini kanssa puhelimessa ja hän kyseli Orléansin jouluvalaistuksesta. Tajusin samalla, että täällähän on aivan mielettömät jouluvalot! Meidänkin katu on aivan täynnä riippuvia koristeita, sekä jalkakäytävältä löytyy varmaan kymmenen koristeltua joulukuusta. Sen lisäksi kahdelle aukiolle on avattu joulumarkkinat, jotka ovat auki päivittäin. Joulufiilistä ei siis voi olla saamatta! Täytyykin käydä kuvailemassa, jotta pääsen näyttämään teille tätä paikallista joulutunnelmaa.

Suunnittelen myös ensi viikolle pientä jouluarvontaa, jotta pystyisin kiittämään teitä kuluneesta vuodesta edes jollain tavalla. Pysykäähän siis kuulolla!


I’m sure these jeans are not for everyone’s taste, but I had to have them after seeing them on the beautiful blogger Soraya. Luckily I found them in my size, so I made the order and a few days later they arrived – and the fit was luckily great! I think they work well with ankle boots or ballerina flats.  Obviously they don’t make the legs look very long, but at least the high waist compensates the cropped length. I also noticed that these suede boots (one of my favorites) are back in stock at & Other Stories. They are super comfortable and they look great with any outfit!

I talked with my mother last night and she was asking me about the Christmas decorations in Orléans. I realized then, that the decorations are actually very impressive. Our street alone has so many lights and probably ten Christmas trees all decorated. What I should definitely do is take the camera out for a spin, so that I can share the Christmas atmosphere with you as well! Hopefully by next week I’ll have some pictures to share with you.

Enjoy your Wednesday everyone!
