I would like to start with thanking you that have told me that you have missed my posts, either here at the blog or in reality. I have missed you and blogging too, but there has just not been time to take outfit photos given that there are few hours with daylight this time of the year in Sweden. At the moment we have daylight between 9 am and 3:30 pm, in case it is sunny. And let me tell you that it seldom is! However, we have survived and passed the darkest part of the year, hurray, and now it is just going to be brighter and brighter for everyday day! Wonderful!
I hope all of you had a lovely Holiday! Mine was very nice. In the evening of the 23rd of December it started to snow and it snowed a lot! So in the morning of the 24th it was white all over, and there was sunshine. My mum and I toke a walk while my dad and Mr D, my partner, shoveled snow from the driveway. I think the boys got more exercise than we did, but we got enjoy the beautiful day more. After our exercise, we had lunch. As none of us are very found of traditional Christmas food we started with toast Skagen and then we had fillet of beef and homemade potato wedges everything cooked by my dad. It was very yummy! Then we spent several hours in front of the fireplace reading books, talking, and eating sweets, and I think some of us napped too. In the late afternoon we exchanged gifts, and then we had some more food. In the evening we watched a very funny Swedish movie called Santa Claus is the father to all children. All in all, a very relaxing Christmas Eve.
As it was just the closest family, I went for a comfortable outfit. As my followers know, I love this polka dot blouse! And I don’t mind to wear the same clothes over and over again, as long as they can be transformed to fit the occasion (for examples of how I have worn this blouse before, click here). As it was Christmas I added sparkly jewelry, a white cardigan with small sequins, and shiny black pants. It might not have been as glittery as the Christmas tree, but who can and want to compete with the Christmas tree?
