Winter Essentials + New Booties.

We're almost in the middle of December, but in Israel winter is just making its first steps. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I would have been able to enjoy sunny days in summer dresses and simultaneously complain about how it's not winter yet, and how dearly I miss wearing layers and layers and layers of clothing to keep my eternally-cold self warm.

I rounded up a list of 6 items that will get you through the winter without too much of a hassle: 

1// Waterproof bag. 
This is and important one. My Kanken backpack saved my life while in Berlin when I was caught by surprise with heavy rain (I was also wearing a tank-top and shorts, so the entire experience was just wonderful). 

2// Socks that make you happy. 
There is nothing more in this world that I appreciate more than a nice pair of printed socks (well, besides pizza). You could be wearing the most basic outfit and just spice it up with printed socks (preferably a pizza print, but whatever makes you feel butterflies in your belly).

3 // Cozy wool coat.
Very important if you don't want to freeze your butt off.

4 // Skinny jeans.
I love wearing slouchy sweaters and big tops during the winter, so skinny jeans are the perfect pair to those.

5 // A plain sweater.
Winter is great for many reasons. One of which is that you can (or maybe you actually should) dress in layers and layers of comfy clothes. A basic, white sweater will take you a long way. You can dress it up with a scarf or a unique pin.

6 // Basic, black booties.
Another reason why winter is great (besides the fact that I get a cold every other week) is boots, and ankle boots in particular. They'll look great with anything you wear and make you feel as badass as ever. The booties in the photos above are a pair I got at "Big Tom" a few hours before my flight to Vienna, and I'm absolutely in-love with them.

A Vienna photo diary will be up soon. 
Love, Alona

    Love the picks! The booties and the jumper are my favourites!


  9. Yes to pizza and socks. Socks are one of my favorite articles of clothing, I remember one of my friends got offended when our other friend joked abouto getting her socks for Christmas, but in my mind I was like yes give me socks. I want socks. I need to find a pair of boots that are waterproof - so far I've only found Dr Martens, but they're a bit clunky to walk around in. Yours are very cute, by the way!

  18. Oh how I love boots and cozy clothes!


  19. Really love your new boots! They are such a classic style that really go with everything. It has also been quite warm here in Berlin as the winter has been extremely mild. Not even sure if it is going to snow this year! Love your winter staples too! My Kanken backpack is also one of my staple go-to bags really any time of the year.
