My Swiss holiday last week got me thinking of the fact that temperature shouldn’t be the one to influence our style and our desire to look and feel good even if it’s cold or rainy outside. I know that sometimes you just want to be warm and comfortable, so you end up settling for the coziest clothes you have even if they are not the quite part of the ‘fashionista package’.

There are times when I’m such in a hurry or not in the mood to dress up and freeze in god knows what fancy attire, so I kinda play it safe.

Last but not least, the clothes!

Wonderful pieces are such a waste to keep indoors. Wear your favorite shirts even if they are silky but cuddle them under a warm coat or cardigans. Skirts can also be made part of an incredible attire as you can wear long boots or warm stockings to keep cold away. I am going to pick my
