hopefully you are having a great day today filled with delicious food and awesome people. Since it is a normal day over here it was business as usual today. We took a ton of Christmas pictures for different posts today. I am really happy it worked out so well cause shooting with a baby can turn awful really fast.
Anyways let´s talk about black jeans. To be honest I have never been a huge fan of black denim and am still not but it is a closet staple. I own about 4 pairs of black denim and wear them on ocassion but I will always turn back to blue denim or white in the Summer.
For the look I combined lots of comfortable knits and a cute turtleneck with the black ripped jeans.
I am finally coming around of sharing the details of Emilia´s baptism two weeks ago. This was such an emotinal and exciting day (rather for me than for her) and so nice to spend it with family although there were still some restrictions due to stupid Covid.
Church hasn´t been a problem since we only were a small group of people but for our at home celebration we sadly had to reduce so only our parents and the godparent of Emilia have attended. All of the others got a big slice of cake to-go. We decided whether to change the date or not but I wanted to finally “get over with it” cause we alreay had the candle and the cake ordered and her clothes would not fit in a few months.
Hopefully there won´t be many restrictions around her first birthday so we can have a big celebration.
Anyways let´s talk about the cake table I set up. I loved loved loved how it turned out. I definitely wanted to do something special for her blessing and I think the table turned out great.
First of all I started with the sequin blankets I also used for the gift table and candy bar at our wedding. I got them from etsy and they are huge and heavy and made of great quality. The other highlight on the table was the fir garland. I ordered it for the whole length of the table and added tiny twinkle lights and it just looked stunning.
The cake of course was the show stopper of the table. The cutest 2-tier cake I have seen in a while and it was really tasty too. The pink petit-fours had the symbols of the baptism candle painted on top.
To the left and right I added candle holders, tea lights, a cute picture in a beautiful frame as well as forks, spoons, napkins and plates.
Our theme has been pink and white with lots of golden accents. I personally loved it a lot and this was so much fun I am already looking forward to plan her first birthday.
today has been a very productive day for myself. I did tons of laundry and put it away. I cleaned a lot and also started to clear out our pantry plus the Christmas decor I haven´t been using for years. Maybe I was a little overenthusiasticbut it feels so good to get things organized. I just love to look at the final product plus I have been heavily influenced by the Home Edit. Any other neat freaks around here?
Anyways I have been dying to share this look with you guys cause I loved it so much. It was cozy, highly fasionable and right up my alley in terms of Fall fashion. Would also make a great Thanksgiving outfit it you don´t plan on eating too much.
Adding a plaid blanket scarf to create a Fall look is a very smart move. Is is cozy, the pattern is perfect for the season and it will also keep you warm.
For the rest of the look I kept it simple. A denim skirt, a black bodysuit and a pair of suede boots. Tights with a pattern add lots of interest to every look you are planning and a hat will save you from a bad hair day plus it looks awesome.
For the rest of the week I have some great content planned. All the info about Emilia´s baptism, our family Christmas pj´s and also another gift guide is coming your way.
See you tomorrow and if you are interested every other day of the week.
it was a real chill one over here. We went out on a walk and got a coffee to-go plus I made a little pre-Thanksgiving dinner for just the two of us since we can not celebrate as we are in light-lockdown.
I am a little sad that so many of our themed dinners already got cancelled but it is for the greater good and we´ll see if it helps.
So for our Thanksgiving dinner the last few years I have made tons of side dishes and wanted to share them here for you (in case you need some inspo and are allowed to celebrate).
