Ugh, life was so great under the Californian sun! But I’ve been back for over a month now so I guess it’s time I get over it. Because I’m in Belgium now, and it’s cold as hell here.

I admit Fall is definitely not my favourite season. Between the rain, the cold, the half-sunny-but-not-really-sunny days and the worst of all, daylight saving time, I only get more depressed every day.

These days, I’m pretty much on automatic pilot: I try to make it through the day and get used to this slower routine, and I focus on the countdown to Christmas and snow to keep things positive. Luckily, I’ve found two great items to keep me company during those hard times.

My handbag, which you’ve seen before and that I promised I would show more. I’m really happy with it, it’s really perfect, the quality is just amazing.

The coat is actually my most recent (and first in months) purchase from H&M, and it’s a pretty good bargain: it’s from their Conscious collection – the one that takes away all their guilt because it’s made with organic/recycled materials. Anyway, my coat is made with recycled wool, which for me still is a plus point. Another advantage was its teeny tiny price (40€), especially since I’ve worn it almost every day since I got it. It’s nice and warm, and it’s elegant enough to dress me up on my most casual days, but casual enough to not make me look too dressed up when I actually do the effort of not wearing sneakers/sweatshirts/jeans.
