Jacket – Mum’s Deni Cler, Black jeans – Zara, Bag – River Island, Scarf – Solar

Hello from Warsaw! Please excuse my sparse posting, I’ve had to go to the extent of committing blogger sin by taking outfit photos at the mall because I’ve been waking up to dusk everyday. I wake up to the sun setting – is that wrong or what. Well, the fact that I’m waking up at 2pm and the fact that the sun is setting around then… is probably a similar type of crime. The weather is quite exhausting, I completely forgot that Warsaw gets this bitter cold despite the fact that I spend my winter here what, every year? Happily there are lots of stuff to steal from my mum’s closet, whether she likes it or not – I WILL WEAR THAT GUCCI BAG BECAUSE I’M SO COLD.
What can I say, -17°C makes some screws come loose.

  1. -18? DUDE, that is freezing!
    I thought I had a hard time with -5 in Denmark.

    Oh, and that’s a real pretty bag, I must say!!

  4. Tell me about it, it’s the same damn thing here in Finland too. The whole week it has been like
    -17C and it’s so dark ALL the time. This weather is a definite inspiration killer. You, however, manage to look amazing despite the weather!

    I love your bag and your nail polish. lol

    The sun sets around 2PM in Warsaw in winter?!! That’s kind of depressing. We haven’t hit real cold temperatures in Canada yet, so we’re still in the -5 to -10 range.

    Cheers! :)

  15. Where did you get that nail polish? I love it! I saw it in the Chanel show a few months ago but it appears that green is too scary for the dutch market..

    It’s BarryM 304 Mint Green colour, they have a site that delivers too, except I’d recommend you get it from stores. (They lost 2 of my orders) If you’d like I could get you in London after the first week of Jan and send it over ;)!

  17. The sun sets around 4pm for me. I don’t know where Skye is from in Canada, but I had a -47 morning last week in Saskatchewan! :/ I didn’t dare go outside. It’s about -10 now; much more reasonable.
    & I love your bag!

  20. Are we talking celcius degrees? Because weather that cold would leave me no choice but to hibernate. That gorgeous red coat is probably the only item of clothing that can warm up the mood!

    Definitely Celcius, I think if it were Fahrenheit I’d have to dig in next to the sewers :P however disgusting that sounds (SOUNDS WARM)

  21. I’ve been wearing that nail shade too, it helps combat the weather I think.

  22. Woow Are u in Warsaw!? Yes in Poland it’s so cold !! The best way it’s stay at home ;-) I love this brtish bag ;-)

    Reply

  23. Wow, -17 degrees… I’d cry for you, but I’m afraid they’d just freeze! How do you even stay warm in that kind of weather? (I guess minimizing time outside helps, hmm?) Enjoy your vacation!

  26. You look so lovely and warm! I rarely look in River Island at bags but you make me view their bags in a different light now, yours is so cool!

    Reply

  27. Haha I second all the other comments, LOVE the nail polish (but its all the better worn with the equally awesome bag!

    Reply

  28. yiiiikes that’s cold. I think? I forget how to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit. It’s been around 70 – 80 degrees Fahrenheit around Los Angeles. hehe yes I do love the weather here. :b

    and love your nail polish! I’m actually wearing a color like that!

    Reply

  29. That red coat looks so good to you. I’m lucky because I just missed the cold weather before coming to visit my family, apparently it was -30 degrees celcius! Now it’s around -10 or so and doesn’t seem so bad, but I’m still not used to it!

    Reply

  30. -17 degrees? That’s just insane. I’m definitely appreciating tropical weather right now. :D

    I really want that nail polish! :X

  34. That coat is gorgeous!
    I’m so hot and cold with freezing weather – on the one hand, you get to be all bundled up and adorable, on the other, it’s extremely hard to find good boots that keep your toes warm but are also not hideous.

  35. Gorgeous bag! Makes me ponder a DIY with an Indian Flag! ;)

  52. We just got our first big snow over where I am! It’s exciting at first, but then you have to slough through it the next day. Not so pleasant anymore. That jacket looks so ridiculously comfortable and I am definitely going to try to get my hand on some of that nail polish.
