Christmas, Some Outfit Planning
I only need one more approval and then I will officially start as a research assistant in January. After months of planning I have finally found a research project I am interested in (and which suits my area of expertise), so a large amount of pressure is lifted off my shoulders. There are just some courses left to finish and some last work projects and them I am done for the year, workwise. Which makes place for new plans: Christmas and New Year’s Eve. As for Christmas I will be going back to the south of France to celebrate, then spend a couple of days in Paris (even though I was there just two weeks ago… oops) and then I will be travelling to Israel, where I will celebrate NYE in Tel Aviv.
Different trips need different outfits. Since I reckon the weather will be pretty wintry everywhere (except perhaps Tel Aviv?), I am sure to pack my Isabel Marant Dicker boots and Deyis boots. Other than that I will be bringing a fair amount of woollen knits, a good pair of jeans and my Acne scarf. Even the Mediterranean gets chilly during winter, although it is a different kind of cold from the Northern countries in my opinion. An extra pair of woollen socks never hurts anyone, though.
I have two looks in mind for the Christmas period. One is a more casual day-to-day ensemble (similar to my regular ensemble du jour) and the one which can be seen above is a more festive one, which I will wear for our celebratory Christmas dinner and for the night out on New Year’s Eve. Now I should probably look into which restaurant to book in Tel Aviv for the big goodbye to 2016… I am thinking of booking the NYE arrangement at either Dalida or Onza (however, any tips are surely welcome). And of course, in the tradition of my blog, I will try to assemble a compilation post of 2016 (similar to the one I did last year) and will upload it soon.
P.S. Thank you for the interesting comments I have been receiving on my blog – I love reading them and I genuinely try to respond to all of them. The interaction is nice, and frankly, it makes me feel less like talking into a void sometimes.
