A sparkling skirt


 December is here. And in a few days the streets will be crowded of people in search of gifts.
 There is a childish part of me that has always loved the sweetness of the month. 


Then, years have gone  too fast and have taken away dears.I feel some sadness, but this is life.
December is here.
I will choose pretty presents for my  (old ) relatives and friends. 
I will be happy to see  them smile.


 December is a festive month  which I start this year wearing a silk skirt . 


To feel the joy around . It's a special month ,  after all! 


A silk skirt with  beads sewed on the rim .
A marble-colour (isn't  it a fantastic way to name a colour ? ) sweater 
with tiny holes ( which I bought online ).


The burgundy nail polish and pearls add some festive .


I like pearls but think that they are a bit too classic ,  so have  recently made a necklace which reflects my actual taste.
It has smoky quartz gemstones and a thin  chain in the back 


Now I am ready.
And you ?

    1. Those pearls were part of an old necklace which I hadn't been wearing for long . Now I have a new one that is more my taste...

    1. I needed a necklace which matched the outfit. Pearls go with (almost) everything!

  6. I love that skirt, Dan, and how amazing is that sweater! At first sight I thought they were tiny dots, but then I read they were tiny holes! How ingenious! Enjoy every moment of December ... xxx

    1. The skirt has a very cute colour in real. A mauve tone not well visible in the photos...

  7. This is one of my favorite looks for you, Dan. The skirt is gorgeous with the perfect top. But of course, my eyes went right to the beautiful hand made necklace which is perfect! Happy Holidays to you and your family.

    1. Many thanks dear Rebecca!

      I bought the skirt years ago. I styled it with the large sweater for a modern look ... then I added the necklace ... pearls are so nice!

  8. Love the marble sweater with the texture! The skirt is so gorgeous, love the sheer layer with the beading, it is perfect for the holiday season.
    I know how bittersweet holidays can be, missing loved ones, but it is a wonderful time to take stock and enjoy the people in our lives and well as reminisce fondly of who we remember, and of friends, far away,
    Love the boots, too, by the by..
    much love, Elle

    1. You perfectly understand my feelings, Elle. There is a bit of melancholy during Christmas time...but I am determined to enjoy its magic vibe!

  9. Beautiful skirt. Very good for all the festivities this month, but also good for other months/days.
    And I love the sweater. You didn't mention any brands and I am curious.
    The sweater and those booties make this outfit very modern. Love what you did with the necklace. I love nearly all your necklaces. If you ever open a jewellery shop, I will become your best customer.

    1. When I bought the skirt ( it was years ago) I was tempted to unstitch the beads from the trim. Luckily I didn't!!
