I spent this week in Stuttgart working and took pretty much not a single picture haha
So here goes nothing 😉
I spent the weekend at my in-laws because at Annalenas had struck the flu.
I made use of the luxery of having a bathtub and took a relaxing bath! So good!
Sometimes its also a comforting thing to find your husbands work shoes while you dont see each other for a week
It turned pretty cold over the weekend in Germany. Pretty soon did I find out that my winter jacket was not made for this. I kind of knew this but as I was trying to replace my Canadian winter jacket last year I got so frustrated by the limited options and high prices that I went with the best option – which was not ideal.
This time around it almost turned into the same frustrating search. I knew I needed it pretty much right away since it would have made no sense to have it a week later when the winter would probably be almost over (especially in Bonn). And it needed to be extra, super duper warm.
After seaching the internet and stores I found one that fits the bill!!! North face arctic parka. Its down freather on the inside and something different on the outside that makes it wind and waterproof! Perfect! It also was almost 50% off, which turned into a pretty good deal.
Funny story: I went from a childrens jacket to a large adult jacket with the same body measurements haha. Last year I realized that xl childrens jacket fit me and since it was almost 100€ cheaper and did not look like one I happily bought one.
This time around I found this jacket but could not find it anywhere in a small or medium. When I saw it at the store on sale in large I thought ‘I might as well try it on’. And for some reason it totally fitted me. Its a little too long for my liking and I bought it thinking ‘its a good deal. I can always hem it’ but now having worn it a week I love the lenght!
And after temperatures like this…
I was more than happy to have had my new jacket! It kept me perfectly warm.
But after this week I’m officially ready for flip flops and shorts 😉 let it be warm again!
Until then though I will enjoy my time in Stuttgart with Annalena and am looking forward to being back in Bonn next week!
Wishing you a wonderful and warm weekend!
lots of love,
