Pre-loved clothes for a cold climate

If you hadn’t gathered – hey! I’ve just got back from Berlin. It was freezing. But good freezing and nothing a nice big gluhwein couldn’t cure. Crisp clean air and crisp clean snow – which Isabella got to experience on a large scale for the first time – she loved it.

So of course we had to prepare for this. I always travel light, nevertheless, second-hand items featured in mine and Isabella’s capsule wardrobe luggage. Some items have appeared in the blog before and some haven’t.

For Isabella:

Thermal leggings

Thermal leggings, free, hand-me-down from a friend – thanks Annette!
