Hello everyone! Hope you had a great start in the new year. Today I wanted to share my 2017 handbag wish list with you, it is by no means a huge list since my handbag collection is almost complete thanks to purchases I made last year. There are only three handbags on my wish list for 2017 and funnily enough they each come from three different brands!

Winter Essentials

When I first moved to London many years ago from sunny South Africa I found the colder months to be quite miserable to say the least. Then I moved to Switzerland and found the winter months to be even colder, which made winter a mostly moany and somewhat depressing time for me. It was not until a Swedish friend of mine told me about a popular saying they had in Sweden “there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing”, that I started to reassess my winter wardrobe choices. My friend was so right and after making that obvious change I don’t dread winter, instead I (almost) look forward to comfy, warm layers all bundled up and snug.

So with it already being December and the official start of winter I wanted to share key winter essentials that work for me.

Coats from L to R can be found here, here and here.

October Favourites

Another month has gone by and before we know it the festive season will be upon us again! October has been pretty busy for me – I recently started my Masters degree and have been inundated with course work, but I am so happy to be studying again after completing my Bachelors degree more than 3 years ago. I have also been juggling some freelance work,  along with enjoying the start of autumn with Bella. I am so lucky to be able to go for daily walks in the forest, where I get to enjoy the golden foliage of autumn all around me.  Autumn is truly a beautiful season!

With the change in weather my quest for tall boots became a bit urgent, as some of you might know I am curating a capsule shoe collection of not more than 15 pairs of shoes that should cover everything from sandals, pumps, trainers to boots. So for a long time I was contemplating between the Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots and the Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots in black. In the end I chose the Lowland boots as I found those to suit me better. So this October the Lowland boots have been a huge favourite of mine. If you are looking for comfortable, practical yet chic boots for autumn and winter I can highly recommend these.
