The countdown to Christmas is on!

We’re finally putting our tree up this weekend, and decorating whilst listening to carols and drinking (spiked) egg nog. I say we, but I really mean Azim/my Dad. Lugging a tree home, carrying it into the house, and setting it up is hard work! I do try to help by pouring the nog and keeping the atmosphere festive 🙂


In today’s post I’m wearing a more polished and business-appropriate outfit. I find this trouser-cut extremely flattering. Whenever I wear this particular pair of pants, I’m always told that I look taller and slimmer! They’re also very comfortable, and easy to care for. Not bad for a purchase from The Gap.
They sound like magic, don’t they? Well, there’s a catch –  they are required to be worn with a slight heel. For all you ladies averse to heels, these pants are not for you. But if you can wear 2-3 inch heels easily, make sure you invest in a trouser-cut.

I kept the silhouette and overall look simple by adding a chic jacket in a contrasting colour. By pairing it with a ladylike purse, this outfit works well for daytime or the office. By throwing on a fur stole, this outfit becomes ready for cocktails on the rooftop of the Park Hyatt.

I hope you all have a festive, happy weekend ahead! xox

Jacket – Banana Republic / Pants – Gap (I wear a size 2R for reference) / Top – Mendocino / Bag – Coach / Shoes – Ivanka Trump

    Oh how I wish it was okay to put up the Christmas tree in the end of November here as well!! So cozy! Here it is a tradition to decorate the tree on December 23rd…… But Andreas allows me to put it up around the 13th. Always something 😉
