Bonjour my loves and hello December!
No idea where December came from, but I won’t deny it was very nice to welcome it in Paris. We treated Sasha to a trip to Disneyland Paris for her birthday (lucky kid) and made her walk around Paris with us in return for the rest of the trip. It’s only fair…
Paris is so beautiful at this time of year, but boy is it cold or is it COLD?!
I mean it’s around 4 degrees on average every day, but the frost bite feels all -20. And trust me I know how that feels coming from Estonia. Poor Sasha wasn’t used to wearing so many layers (for my peace of mind mostly) and I’d never heard myself say the word “cold” so many times before… What’s happening to my Russian roots?
Nonetheless, the Sun shone for us the whole time and although it was crispy cold outside, I was well prepared. This time, the secret was not in layering, but in key “smart” pieces that kept me super cosy in cold Paris. Although we booked our trip well in advance, just like December it creeped up on us from nowhere and I literally had a few days to get Winter Paris-ready. Of course my Shearling Aviator was coming with me, as well as some of my cable knit thick jumpers, lest admit – they are not the best pieces to wear under a heavy shearling jacket.
Super thankful for this black striped Jigsaw cashmere sweater I got from LABEL. Easy on the skin, extremely warm and ideal for wearing under anything sheepskin lined. If it didn’t arrive the following day after my order you would be seeing a completely different story here. Three layers of different knitted jumpers probably, scarfs and possibly another coat too – it really was that cold. Cashmere is the way forward! Can’t believe that LABEL deliver all of my favourite brands to my doorstep the next day. So many amazing brands such as Nike, Ted Baker, Mango, French Connection and many others all in one place, which makes it so easy to shop – NEW ONE STOP SHOP guys!
Happy December and see you soon for more Paris stories next where I’ll show you what else I got at Label for my trip!
