A Little Christmas Update
London is looking so magical before Christmas and I have to say I will be missing my beautiful home city over the holidays! I’m actually now in Finland spending time with my family for the holidays, cozying up on the sofa with wool socks and a jumper on, my cat purring next to me. It’s minus 8 degrees outside and it has been snowing for the past couple of days. Although I am a big fan of a warm weather, I love how beautiful it is everywhere in my hometown with the pure powder show covering all the streets and houses. A perfect Christmas weather!
Winter outfits in London
I have to admit I quite enjoy the mild winter days in London. As you can probably tell, when I can get a way with it without freezing my nose off, my favourite outfit combo this season is skirts or dresses with OTK boots, paired up with a knit and a long coat to keep the heat in. I’ve spoken about the OTK boots before on my blog, and for a good reason, they just make your outfit so put together. And they go nicely on top of skinny jeans as well, bringing and extra layer of warmth on those colder days.
I’ve been getting the final Christmas presents today and so many stores are currently doing pre-Christmas sales, which I find so crazy, but I’m not complaining! It’s actually perfect timing to save some money off from those more special and pricier gifts, like perfect winter coats. For weekend exploring in the city, one of my favourite coats to wear is this light grey AllSaints coat, which is 80% wool and surprisingly warm. They don’t have it in the same exact colour anymore, but they have it in beautiful light tan and black, currently for 50% off! AllSaints have currently a sale on the whole site, so I would definitely recommend checking out some last minute Christmas presents for yourself or your loved ones.
I will try to post an update about my Christmas in Finland as well, but I can’t promise it will be fashion focused, because when I am here my winter fashion basically means layering thermals, long sleeve tops and jumper, topped up with a quilted jacket and trousers, pretty much like a skiing outfit! Where will you be spending your holidays?
For those more outfit focused posts, you can now find me on 21 buttons as well, where I’ll try to regularly link all my outfits that I am currently loving. My username is same as on my instagram @helmi.pikari.
But for now, I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year!
