waiting for this moment

If I told you the whole history behind this leather jacket you would probable doze -off half way through. Suffice to say, it was a birthday present back in April, but I finally have my size seven months later. And while my wardrobe still feels miles from complete, this one item has certainly made it’s presence felt. The detailing is the first aspect which drew me to this particular jacket. The diagonally placed zippers, the quilted shoulders, the adjustable side tabs and the unassuming collar, made it a must-have. The second aspect was the price, which was a big draw card for this to be added to my birthday list.

These pictures were taken at the weekend, and if I look tired, it’s not without reason. The last few months have zapped me of all energy.  But now that I am safely tucked up in the French Alps, roaring fireplace, snow-covered mountains and everlasting mugs of hot-chocolate, I can finally say that I am feeling more human each day. I’m excited about Christmas, yet we will traditionally celebrate it late when the whole family is together. In the meantime, relaxation and snowboarding are on the menu, so what more could I ask?

Happy Christmas everyone xxx

L’histoire derrière cette veste en cuir est assez longue. Mais en version courte, c’était un cadeau d’anniversaire (mon anniversaire est en avril), et ce n’est que sept mois plus tard je l’ai finalement trouvé à ma taille. Ma garde-robe est très loin d’être complète, mais cette veste a vraiment pris sa place. Ce sont les détails qui ont retenu mon attention. les fermetures éclairs placées diagonalement, les épaules matelassées, les languettes latérales réglables et le col modeste ont rendu cette veste un “must-have”. Le deuxième aspect était le prix, un point assez important quand je fais ma liste de souhaits pour mes cadeaux d’anniversaire.

 

On a pris ces photos pendant le weekend, et si je semble un peu fatiguée, ce n’est pas sans raison. Les derniers mois m’ont vidée de toute mon énergie. Mais maintenant, je suis dans les Alpes, avec une cheminée, les montagnes couvertes de neige, les grandes tasses de chocolat chaud, et je peux enfin dire que je me sens plus humaine chaque jour. Je suis très excitée pour Noël, même si on le célébre plus tard quand toute la famille est rassemblée. En attendant, un peu de repos et du snowboard sont au menu, je ne peux rien demander de plus.

 

Joyeux Noël à tout le monde xxx
