December 24

Time flies. It's already the 24th of december again and - less exitedly than many children, of course - I'm waiting for the celebrations to begin. This evening will be spent very traditionally with the family gathering at my parents' flat and having a feast (Raclette). After that, some small presents will be handed around and hopefully amongst them there will be some kind of parlour game that can be tried out afterwards.

Since it is still quite warm for this time of the year (adieu white christmas - dreams) I chose to wear a red dress combined with cream-coloured tights and some of my favourite jewellery. Additionally, I felt it was a good occasion to put up my hair for a change.

To those who like and celebrate Christmas, I wish you all a very merry and peaceful time

Advent brings rain instead of snow

2012 nears its end...december already. But judging from the weather one could as well believe we are just facing autumn's first days. No silently trickeling snowflakes or frostiness around. Instead, rain is falling from the gray clouds crowding the sky and if it was only a little warmer, you could leave the house without a coat or jacket (I only put mine off for the photos, however).

As my best friend's husband celebrated his birthday this evening in form of a quite sit-in 'party', I chose to wear a casual but not too understated outfit. Main part of it was a pullover I recently bought secondhand on ebay as "a dress". Although I doubt it is wearable without an additonal skirt or trousers, with the many little white knobs stiched on the black fabric it has managed to become one of my favourite piece during the few days I own it. As for the birthday 'party' today I also was in the mood to give my overknee socks a comeback.
