A new year has just started and I have no problem bidding 2014 farewell, as it did not treat me particularly well. Although I’ve learnt not to complain much when health issues are not involved, so there you go, this is the most you will hear me complaining.
I had a long and relaxing holiday first in Mexico (you saw a preview here, but I need to catch up on these posts – will happen soon I promise!),then in Greece, then I came back to the village (aka Brussels), then Latvia for a few days for work and now, finally, back to the basi(c)s.
(Fashion resolution for the 2015: wear more stripes. Health: lose 8kg. Culture:go to more museums and concerts – books,cinema are covered thank God. Family and friends:visit/see them more. And a wish: finally make up my mind about stuff).
Although the weather was as delightful as you can imagine,the cold hit me really hard both in Greece (believe it or not!!) and in Latvia.Before embarking on my last trip, I paid a visit to the sale section of Mango and made some important acquisition like this jacket and this sweater.
And then I just stepped in Zara just hoping to find a decent pair of boots for the snow and I stumbled upon these babies which I snagged immediately.
I should also stress how good Zara can be sometimes with basics. My latest folly about stripes was satisfied with two great shirts (here and here), which were complemented by this one, which literally goes with every single thing in my wardrobe!
So, here’s to a new year with some photos from Latvia and some suggestions on places to see and go.
