I hate to bring this to you, but Christmas is right upon us, peeps! I know, right? Where does the time go? I’m sure I’m not the only one to think that it is becoming increasingly difficult to buy Christmas presents for the ones around us, with so and so being allergic to this and that, and so and so buying only locally and fair trade. I’m sure a few of you have this lone traveler in your family for whom it is impossible to find the right present because she is living out of a small backpack, and on top of that is a vegan.

We hardly slept. At all. And seeing Cirque du Soleil’s “O” from the 3rd row in the middle of the night whilst jet lagged is possibly the closest I will ever feel what it’s like to be on LSD.
…You were always on my mind: cobalt blue wool coat.

I love every single item from the collection itself, but mostly I just love her looks and how she incarnates the most perfect tomboyish yet feminine Parisian cool chick that ever lived and that everyone wants to be or to be with or something.

I really need to stop talking about jogging whenever I feel like blogging… And turns out, when I feel stressed with school and work, I turn to fashion blogs!!! I, proper girl that I am, enjoy very much a good online shopping session, and I find that browsing through fashion blogs is the best way to find inspiration, rather than just looking through the actual shop’s online catalog. So I’m giving this new thing a try here, in honor of my very approaching trip to Italy, here’s a random outfit from my spring wishlist:
