Ugly weather…not sweater!

I’m not one of those people that wants or needs a white Christmas; my husband and I spent the holidays at a tropical resort once a few years ago, and it was amazing!!

The problem with snow in Vancouver is that it looks really pretty for about five minutes…and then the rain comes again and turns it all into a big mess. But since we have to deal with it once it’s here, I thought I’d make the best out of an “ugly” situation, and wear my very seasonal snowflake sweater!!

I found this angora-soft, black and white version at Le Chateau ages ago; but it has survived numerous closet purges not just because – hey! we all need a Christmas sweater! – but because it has such a flattering fit with the elbow-length sleeves and the V-neck.

And speaking of Christmas…this is it!! The final chapter of my “Twelve Posts of Christmas!!” You will have until noon PST tomorrow (Christmas Eve) to leave me your qualifying comments; I will be announcing the winner of the silver, pearl and peridot bracelet on my Christmas Day post!!  Good luck!!

    I also need no white Christmas – but for us it does not look like. Tomorrow will be 11 degrees Celsius expected and today we had almost T-shirt weather. But I will not complain – the cold weather comes back soon enough. And you are so right – in the city, winter is usually a dirty and messy issue. Only in the mountains can be really nice.
    I like your Christmas Sweater – I wanted to buy one this year – unfortunately the one in my size was not available at Asos. And the others, they were all too expensive. Maybe I'll find another on sale, I will then wear next year 🙂 The leather skirt is great and he is the perfect counterbalance to the snowflakes sweater. Dear Monika, I keep my fingers crossed that the rain does not come so soon and wish you and all your loved ones wonderful Christmas. Enjoy the days – dearest greetings Conny xo

    Love that this sweater proves you don't have to be gaudy to be festive.

    Merry Christmas!
