It's that time of the year again, when the holidays are over, the presents are unwrapped and the party invites have been reduced to a trickle. All you're left with is a sort of holiday hangover where you've got to come face-to-face with a smack back to reality and a few new kilos. Motivation seems a far cry and dressing up is a tough task.
So how do you deal with it all?
By sneaking in a hot chocolate ever other day in your break time. By gifting yourself with something pretty from any of the million ongoing sales. By spraying yourself with any fragrance that has notes of vanilla and cinnamon. By reminding yourself that it is still blissfully winter where you get to snuggle up in woolens and knits.
Well, that's what I've been doing at least. Take a look at these stunning shots.

 Cream knit sweater - Vintage, Olive jeans - Zara, Braided tan belt - Thrift (Colaba), Tan sandals - Catwalk, Cream tote - Thrift (Bandra), On my eyes - Colorbar Indian Eye Kohl, Chambor glitter kohl, On my nails - NYX 'Crystal Glitter'

I think being every kind of comfy is the best thing to do to recuperate from the apparent holiday hangover condition I'm suffering from. Let's call it 'slouchy-chic', if you may. The military-inspired theme is one of the biggest trends this F/W '13 and with this palette of cream, tan and olive; it's a lovely, subtle version of it.

So guys, have that extra cup of coffee and carry on with reality. I'm getting back there too.



I love your olive pants, darling. And you're looking hearty, which is always the best accessory there can be!

Love, Miffalicious. []
