“Enjoy the butterflies of winter. Each as unique and amazing as you!”
Since pictures sometimes speak louder than words, a blogpost with lots of photos and few words.
Wel…that was the plan. Honestly! Truth is that I just like writing too much to go for photos only. I will still show you a lot of snowy photos this week and use the opportunity to tell you why pictures often speak louder than words and how you can use that knowledge.
“Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very far.”

The same Friday that I published my blog post about hiding the Xmas extras we went for a super snow shoe walk. Not because I wanted to bring the “walk your talk” quite literally into practice, but because there was an abundance of freshly fallen snow and you should always take your chances when they present themselves, right?!

“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”
– Anthony J. D’Angelo
Living close to the mountains means that you can often go there to find both snow and sunshine in winter. A luxury I highly appreciate and often enjoy. And when even going to the mountains does not bring sunshine, I bring the sunshine myself!

I am a blogger who “walks her talks”. That means that I have enjoyed lots of yummy meals and cakes during the holidays and…tada…being 40+, this has had some effect on my beautiful belly! I can imagine that some of you may recognise this and that’s why I show you several stylish dresses and skirts that have this extra bonus of hiding your belly pretty well.

“What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year.”
– Vern McLellan
In my case it is this new sweater to start with…I use it in this week’s blogpost as a way to explain why you should stick to only one New Year’s Resolution. The one that matters to you. The one that makes a difference. The one that will determine what the New Year brings to you.
I will also show you three different ways to style it, since all good things come in threes!

My Christmas holidays are the perfect moment to relax and to reflect. This year I am in Switzerland during my holidays, enjoying the beauty this country has got to offer in winter. Lots of winter walks and skiing, followed by cosy evenings with my family or friends (see this previous blogpost).

I assume many of you have enjoyed several Xmas events these past few weeks, like lunches, dinners, parties and so on. Sometimes they start right after work and that’s why I love this festive yet easy outfit. I can quickly create it after a day of teaching by only changing a pair of trousers for black tights and this skirt. That way I am ready to join my friends for lunch after a morning of teaching, my colleagues for Xmas drinks after a day of teaching or my husband for a superb brunch after an early winter walk. Three Xmas events in the past week and since they all involved different people, I kind of cheated and repeated the same trick 3 times, getting lots of compliments 3 times too! Life is good.

Winter is coming, so here are 7 small and simple things I just love to do in the winter season.
Dress: Only, Ankle boots: Chigo
It will come as no surprise that I have embraced the tartan trend in the form of another dress (like I did with the animal print trend too). I take the phrase “dress to impress” quite literally I suppose.
Trousers/Top/Cardigan (new): H&M
Winter is coming and I am so ready for it! Till we have got lots of snow, I simply create my own winter whites. This super cosy, fluffy and soft cardigan is a recent buy (children’s department, so not only a small size, also a small price). Remember my neutral 1st of August outfit? This is my neutral winter version, perfect for the 1st of December!
