The Dutch trees are losing their leaves and I used my home heater for the first time this week. Yep, winter is coming! Did you know that the winterdays in Holland are very short? In midwinter the sun won’t rise till 9am and is gone at about 5pm. On working days we sometimes have to miss out on it completely.
Not that I mind though. I love the stay-indoors-and-cuddle season. The run towards Cristmas in particular.
And: we get to use te winter wardrobe again! Get out our favorite sweaters and shop for new items that make us feel warm, comfortable and pretty. Today I’ve started my first search for winter wearables. And I listed ten of my favorite finds [with an illustrated touch of course] below.
Clicking the items will lead you directly to the shopping spot. Enjoy!
