Vila warm sweater & gold Primark necklace

It is officially cold in the Netherlands, we cannot run and also cannot hide…well actually probably if we ran, chances are you at least get warm; thats what I do nearly every morning running after the train!

Ya es oficialmente super frio en Holanda, no podemos correr ni tampoco escondernos…bueno la verdad si hacemos un maraton ahora entraremos en calor por lo menos; mas o menos lo que hago cada mañana detras del tren!.

I am not known for having a lot of winter clothes. So this year and of course after suffering last year’s winter in Holland. I have a mission at the moment that I will invest in a WARM winter wardrobe since I do believe I will be living in the Netherlands for a long time…at least I hope as I really enjoy my life here.

Bueno, los que me conocen saben que casi no tengo mucha ropa de invierno. Asi que este año decidi ampliar mi gama de invierno para tener mas ropa QUE DA CALOR ya que creo que a estas alturas estoy en Holanda por muchos años …por lo menos lo espero ya que estoy muy feliz aqui.

At the moment, it is dark when I leave my home (at 06:45am) and dark also when I come back around 18:45pm so in order to put more light and joy to our house and to the grumpy mornings we all sometimes have. We put the Christmas tree this last sunday, next to which I decided to take photos for this warm outfit.

Ahora mismo, esta muy orscuro por la mañana cuando salgo de casa (a las 06:45) y tambien oscuro cuando vuelvo sobre las 18:45pm mas o menos; asi que para poner mas luz y alegria en nuestras vidas dicidimos poner ya el Arbol de Navidad el pasado domingo, y junto al arbol dicidi sacar las fotos o mejor dicho que me las saquen ahi.

I am not really a religious person but there is something about Christmas that just makes me joyful & happy all the time. I think from all the Dutch we are one of the first to put the tree on since here they wait first for SinterKlaass (6th december) and the last ones to take it out. Honestly if it was for me I leave it all winter long specially in the North with so much more dark than light during the day…but that is just me!…Some people reading this now, will be thinking how crazy I am. Its ok.

La verdad no soy una persona religiosa pero hay algo sobre la navidad que me hace muy alegre todo el rato. Creo que de todos los Holandeses somos talvez los primeros en poner el arbol ya que aqui primero se espera a Sinterklaas (6 de diciembre) y somos seguramente los ultimos. Sinceramente si fuera por mi yo tendria el arbol puesto todo el invierno, es que aqui en el Norte tienen mas oscuridad que luz los dias; por lo tanto no estaria mal no?, tener el arbol hasta …vamos a decir Febrero! ha ha ha bueno seguramente la gente que esta leyendo esto ahora pensaran que me vuelto loca desde que vivo en Holanda o que se me han congelado las neuronas…no pasa nada!

Next to tree

Warm sweater in Plum colour from Vila: Link. Also available in grey…which I might also get.

Primark Necklace

Necklace which I am really loving from Primark. Link. Bought in Barcelona a couple of months ago

Manfield Boots

Leather boots from last winter from Manfield. Link. A very popular brand here in Holland. I didn’t know it before. Actually I never really wore so many boots until living in Shanghai and now in Etten-Leur. I like this brand cause as I have dificulties finding leather boots that are actually not so wide from the above as I have skinny legs, certain of their models just work perfect for me.
