A Bit Of Scandi Minimalism

December 05, 2016

  Just be yourself. Someone will find your uniqueness attractive.

There's one moment that I'm looking forward to the whole year and no, it's not Christmas - it's choosing the Christmas tree. I know it's sad to go for a natural tree, they struggle to become that gorgeous for so many years and then, one winter they become lifeless. Don't get me started, it makes me wanna cry. But it's tricky - plastic trees are ugly and fake and what can be more amazing than having a little piece of nature in your own home, at least for one month? We wanted a bigger tree and couldn't find one in a pot...if it were for me, I would sell all the Christmas trees in a pot, regardless of their shape, type or size. That way they could easily be replanted and at least some of them will survive another year. But we don't live in a perfect world, so we gotta work with what we have.

For this occasion, I chose to wear a casual outfit with basic pieces, with a twist. I love neutrals - creamy, buttery shades so when I found these two beauties on Dezzal I became obsessed! The coat has such lovely details - I love the oversized metallic eyelet and the side belt - this is the scandi minimalism I'm crazy about. Same story with the backpack - faux leather, a yummy shade and amazing detailing. It keeps your belongings safe, it's super practical and it goes with everything. 
I couldn't resist adding a touch of colour so I went for a red jumper and a pair of vintage Calvins. Of course the boots are from the same story, and the khaki beanie is an ode to our new Christmas tree.
