It’s getting to Winter and I’m feeling like I want to lock myself away and wait until Spring. Scandinavians have a fantastic sense of style and non more so than in Wintry conditions. The Scandi style just rocks, I’m obviously biased as I’m half Danish but can you blame me?!.
These products from Welsh based brand TOAST make me want to cosy up Scandi style.
