Vintage Poncho

We had an amazing time in the Alps over the holidays, so I was extra sad to leave. I made the most of my time there, snowboarding whenever possible, relaxing, and being with my French family.  I also ransacked my part of the wardrobe and unearthed this vintage, wool Poncho. I’d forgotten I had it, and I am so happy to be reunited. It’s from Scotland and it’s sooo warm. All things good for an Australian girl struggling through the colder months. I also found this skirt. I made it a few years ago. It’s a tad too long, but with the cold, its’ extra length is not unwelcome.

Christmas was fabulous and I was certainly spoiled. These boots were a gift from Manu, and they were such a surprise. They were on my list, but I had pretty much forgotten that I had added them. They are sooo warm and comfortable. It’s love! My Mum sent me one of her creations which is the blue glass ring. The packet got lost in transit, but fortunately it turned up just before I headed back to Paris.

Happy New Year everyone!!! xxx

On a passé de très belles vacances dans les Alpes, j’étais très triste de partir. J’en ai profité au maximum là-bas. J’ai fait du snowboard à chaque opportunité, je me suis reposée, et j’ai adoré être avec ma famille française. J’ai également bien remué ma partie de notre garde-robe, et j’ai découvert ce Poncho vintage, en laine. Je l’avais complètement oublié, et je suis très contente que nous soyons réuni. Il vient d’Ecosse et il est super chaud. Parfait pour une fille Australienne durant les mois les plus froids. J’ai même trouvé cette jupe que j’ai fait il y a quelques années. Elle est un peu trop longue, mais avec ce froid je la met avec plaisir.

Noël était excellent et j’ai eu de très beaux cadeaux. Ces bottes étaient un cadeau de Manu. Je les ai mis sûr ma liste, mais j’avais presque oublié qu’elle y étaient. Elles sont bien chaudes et confortables. C’est l’amour! Ma mère m’a envoyé une de ses créations: cette bague en verre bleue. Le paquet s’était perdu en transit, et est arrivé juste avant que je parte pour Paris.

Bonne Année à tous!!! xxx
