We’ve never sent Christmas cards as a couple. It’s weird because we’ve been together for almost thirteen years and married for almost three years now so it was about time, huh? Some weeks ago I decided that this year not only would we send pretty Christmas cards to our friends and family, but also we would make them ourselves! I’m not a very crafty person, that is why I went for the easiest way possible. I am very proud of the result so I thought it would be nice to share the process with you.
We’re back in Germany. It rains. We get up at 7 a.m. again. We’re back in our gloomy offices. Let’s face it. Holidays are over. This year Christmas was particularly nice for both of us. It was a time for family, friends, tons of food and celebrations. Just like it should. We have chosen some of our phone pics to remember those wonderful times.
I can’t imagine a Christmas suitcase without huge cosy Christmas jumpers. They are nice and comfortable and you just wonder if you could always live in them, but then you remember your beautiful blazers and tops and know that Christmas jumpers are perfect but just for Christmas. It’s just like staying with your parents at Christmas, great but just for Christmas, right? Anyway, this one in the picture is from Lot78, but I couldn’t pick up only one, so here you have my selection.
We spend Christmas basically on pijamas or bundled up in huge sweaters, jeans and boots, but sometimes you just want to add a little sparkle in you life… And these earrings are beautiful, aren’t they? Not that I will wear these earrings with my pjs… Well, who knows? Maybe that would be a trend one day. Wait! It’s already a trend: pajama pants and statement earrings were huge this year, right?
Anyway, these earrings would look amazing with a simple LBD for a fancy night out with friends. They would be nice too paired with a nice blouse and a pair of great cut pants for a more casual look, a family dinner maybe?
Christmas holidays are around the corner (yay!). What does this mean? That “In my suitcase” Christmas edition is here! (double yay!)
First thing I’m going to take with me? This lovely tartan scarf from Zara. I just can’t picture Christmas without tartan and warm cosy attire so this piece is a win-win!
