Oh Christmas Tree



Another bad picture today, not clear or sharp or anything but I still love the feel of it. Romantic and perfect for Christmas eve, right? I went for a comfortable, vintagey look for our christmas eve. We had some shopping to do today, getting food for three days because the shops are closed. We got sushi for tonight, turkey for tomorrow and lamb for sunday. I don’t know about you, but it all sounds prettttty nice to me! This is what I wore for our very stressful day of getting ready for christmas. The day started out perfectly (I’m being sarcastic, which will be obvious if you keep on reading): we got downstairs to the sight of our humongous christmastree that had toppled over someway. Probably one of the cats did it, but it had been getting more like the leaning tower of Pisa for days so I blame my boyfriend for postponing getting it upright again. When we were cleaning up the mess, our vacuum cleaner broke down. We were planning on spending christmas eve over with some relatives, but the roads are so slippery and we didn’t want to risk it, so that plan fell through and we had to come up with a last minute plan for food tonight. Ok, it isn’t the end of the world, but if you know something about how crowded shops are on the days before christmas, you know you don’t want to be caught last minute shopping for food if you don’t even know what you want to get. So we went to the shopping mall to get the food, and I went to get a cart. Our money got stuck in the cart and the chain that connected it to the line of other carts wouldn’t let go. So I had to find some guy with tweezers to get that thing out. Not because I can’t miss a bit of change, but because it was our last piece that would enable us to get a cart. Anyway, a couple of guys ended up helping me getting it out (yeay christmas spirit!) and after way too much time spent getting annoyed at people getting in our way while we were shopping, we got home safe and sound. There should totally be traffic regulations for busy shopping days if you ask me.
Anyway, I’m watching Home Alone right now, huddled up in a blanket, and the food was very nice, so in the end all was well. My boyfriend is falling asleep on my shoulder and I’m feeling perfectly content, just how christmas should feel.
The outfit was all about being comfortable and still a bit festive. This dress is really pretty and both casual in silhouette and fun in print and fabric. I’m absolutely over-wearing this beret, aren’t I? I just love it so much, the perfect way to complete an outfit. I’m even wearing it indoors these days. You know you’ve been converted to hat-wearing when you don’t take off your hat when you enter a building. I wore simple lace up ankle boots with a small heel with this, and my red coat. You can’t feel the Christmas spirit without wearing red and white if you ask me!
We stil have some muffins and a form of christmas pastry lying around. I think I’m going to overeat myself just a bit more now.
Happy holidays, sweethearts!!

  2. You have to pay to use a shopping cart? Weird! Although it's a lot weirder that you have to pay for basic medical care here...

    Annnnnyyyyway, that sounds like a lovely Christmas Eve! And you can wear that beret every day, if you ask me. It's so cute!

    And you have a downstairs AND an upstairs? Nice! Sounds like you two have a great place :D
