every year I am looking forward to share our Christmas tree with you guys. I can go all out on Christmas decor, Christmas songs and just get in the spirit for the season.
This year I wanted a traditional color but also very glamorous so I decided to go with gold. You can never go wrong with one of the Christmas colors like gold or red. Since I had red last year this was the natural choice.
One thing I needed to switch out this year have been the lights. We always used string lights but to be honest it was a pain the a** to put them on every year. So I decided to get single lights this year which are turned on with a remote and let me tell you it is so convenient.
I got a pack of 30 pieces off of amazon and love them very much. They definitely add extra flair to the tree.
If you are looking for some extra inspiration for your Christmas tree I am linking my tree´s from the last years for you.
I am sharing another look that incorporates a bunch of Red. Red is my favorite color but it doesn´t fit anytime better than during Christmas season. It is just the ultimate Christmas color and adds such a festive vibe.
The plaid shirt is from H&M and I got it some time back but if you are looking on their site now they offer a whole bunch of different plaid pieces and also matching sets which I think is the absolutely best but I can not get anything from it now as my bump is ways to big. But if you aren´t pregnant at the moment make sure to check it out.
To add some coziness to the look I paired the shirt with this long and oversized beige knit cardigan. Super soft and the color is gorgeous. Since the shirt has an oversized fit (if you don´t have a bump) I paired it with a pair of dark jeans and color matching booties.
This would totally work for a casual Christmas day breakfast or brunch. Feeling festive but appropriate.
today we are exactly one week away from Christmas so the coundtdown is officially on whether you want it or not. I have shared a bunch of dressy Christmas day options but I understand that not anyone wants to get dressed up like I do so I am sharing a pretty casual look today.
Red and plaid has always been an awesome combination for the holidays and in order to make it a little more casual gray is the perfect partner. I personally love red year round but it is extra nostalgic during Christmas time.
To add some warmth to the look I added a overlong knit cardigan, a knitted beanie and a pair of black overknee boots. An outfit so nice I have worn it twice and the skirt and turtleneck still fit my bump so I probably will be repeating them again.
I am sharing a bunch of red included looks this week over on my Instagram in honor of Christmas week. A new one every day. Make sure to check it out. Also I am participating in the #31daylipstickchallenge using a different color every day the whole month of December.
I am sharing my last gift guide with you over here on my little blog today and it has been a near and dear one to my heart.
What to gift the expecting mom? The obvious would be something for the baby but that isn´t really what we want as there are a whole lot more opportunities than Christmas for that. If you know a thing that really helps a mom-to be to get through pregnancy by making it easier or more comfortable go for it, but only if you can really recommend it.
Expecting mom´s want to feel beautiful which isn´t always easy during pregnancy as it comes with a bunch of insecurities and bad days so gift presents that don´t add to that. It could be a pretty necklace with the baby´s name on it or a gorgeous shopper bag that could double as a diaper bag. It is not to hard to think of things. Also sets for pampering herself would make a great Christmas present.
