Back in switzerland with fabi

THE COLD AFTER THE SUNAfter a long trip in India, coming back to Switzerland was most definitely a big change of atmosphere!!! When I woke up this morning, my balcony was literally covered in snow, such as all the rooftops and trees in front of my place. Honestly, it was such a stunning view, my heart just melted like a giant ice cream under the sun and the thing that popped on my mind right away was…….. I have to go bake some Christmas cookies for the whole family (oh and of course decorate them with glitters and colours and all these fun goodies, I already got my pinterest folder ready for some serious cookie-inspiration)!!!! Because that is just the thing that get in my head as soon as I see a single drop of snowflake. Oh my gosh… Christmas time is just the BEST. I love how in Switzerland we take it super seriously and already at the beginning of November all shops set their decorations and install the new window displays. It brings something truly magical to the city and leaves us almost 2 entire months to get ready for the actual celebration. Aaah… I love it. I won’t lie to you and say that I love snow and being all bundled up in sweaters and coats. Coming back to find this weather home was at first pretty dramatic especially since we got 4 days of pure hot summer in India. Imagine, bright sun the whole day, skirts and sunglasses as the only essentials… What more could I have asked for? Makes suitcase packing so much easier! Now that I am back I have to think layers… Gah. And a little hint, our next destinations are not going to be a lot warmer. So I’ll keep on exciting myself with the Christmassy idea of things otherwise I’ll drown in a terrible winter time depression and spend my days in bed with some hot tea, warm snuggly pyjamas and TV shows. Which woulnd’t really be a good thing…
As James and I got back in Geneva, we had so many things to do and actually had to rush directly from the airport to get our visas done for the next adventure. Then we hopped on a couple of meetings in town. My outfit was pretty simple that day but as we all know a little touch of leopard can make anything look more fun. But you know what else makes everything look better? Boots! My passion during cold days is to find the perfect pair of boots. It’s a whole quest. I’ve been raving over so many pairs and got a total crush finaly on these ones by one of my favourite brands Fabi (seriously what is better than some italian made goodness?), a brand that I’ve been talking to you about since the very beginning of Kayture. Indeed I had the chance to work with them since almost 2 years now and am such a big fan of their craftmanship. These particular booties are so iconic, modern and yet comfortable. I walked in them the whole day (and when I say walk, I mean it : train, metro, running from meetings to meetings… not sitting in a café kind of walking day) and never felt so comfy yet classy in a boot. If you ever run into me in town, please note that I rarely hang out without a high heel at my feet. I just feel like a good heel elevates you, your walk, your attitude. I feel like a different person and I love it. Those Fabi boots are just so sexy and chic at the same time, I absolutely fell in love with them and feel like wearing them for the rest of the season! What do you guys think?
