Day to night ...

Day to night ...



Today I am bringing you a holiday inspired post about how to create day to night outfits. 
It is the time of year to attend many Christmas or year's end parties and sometimes it is difficult to find the time to go home and change clothes. 
In the mood board above I used a golden skirt and  a beautiful gold bar necklace as the basis. For the day, I recommend to wear them with an interesting assymetric knit and ankle boots. For the night, I'd only change the top and shoes for classic black pieces and add some further jewellery like this beautiful ring and earrings also made by  AUrate. And the best thing about these jewellery is that by your purchase you also give a book to a child in need.

So here are my tips:

1., Bring a big shopper for the day. You can hide your clutch or mini bag in it for the night.

2., Shiny black high heels make any look a night look.

3., Statement jewellery can make any classic LBD or black skirt-white blouse look a night look.

4., Add an extravagant silk scarf.

5., Learn a classic night hair-do like the Evita bun or add eye-catching hair accessories.


How about you? What are your day-to-night-transition tips?

Comments are highly appreciated.

Thankful ...



Even though we do not celebrate Thanksgiving in my country, I think it is important to take a break from time to time and think about what you are glad for having in your life.

So here is my list of what I am thankful for at this very moment:

1., My baby: I am thankful for having a healthy little baby growing under my heart.

2., My husband: He is more and more caring every day as he sees my bump growing. :)

3., My family:  Sometimes they are too much but I love them.

4., My friends' care.

5., My workmates: They make me feel good and tell me that I am a really pretty preggo even though I sometimes feel like a smaller whale. :)

Palazzo

Palazzo


Did you know?

"During the 1960s, some upscale restaurants resisted modern fashion trends by refusing to admit women wearing trousers, which were considered inappropriate by some proprietors. This posed a problem for women who did not want to wear the skirt styles that were then in fashion. Some women opted to circumvent restaurant bans on women in pants by wearing palazzo trousers or culottes as evening wear."

Those first 5 months ...



I have been looking for the right words to share with you the most wonderful news in our lives for so long but I was really afraid that the time I shouted it out loud, something terrible would happen. 
But while reading Jenessa Sheffield's wonderful pregnancy announcement I realized how lucky we were to  have our baby and to have concieved at first try. And that I should try and chase away those negative thoughts ASAP.

So here it is:
We are expecting a baby  and my due date is in March.

And now some answers for the most common questions:

How did you find out?
Well, I didn't really have to find it out as I was sure about it the first day. :)
After a few days my hormones started to play crazy and then it was no question anymore. 

How about morning sickness?
Those first five months went by relatively easy for me. I only felt really sick twice. In the first few weeks I felt sick for about 2-3 minutes 30 minutes after taking my pregnancy vitamine but then I opted for another vitamine and the problem disappeared. 
What I had problems with in the first two months was diarrhoea. However, with this I can still consider myself lucky as it always came in the late afternoon, after work. 

How much weight have you gained until now?
I have gained about 4,5 kg - which my doctor says is a bit to much but as the baby is quite big as well, I don't worry about it. 

How about your skin?
My facial skin was terrible in the first 2 months but now it is ok.

Do you use anything to prevent stretch marks?
I use Bi-Oil. 

Can you go to work or do you need to stay at home?
As my pregnancy is not considered as a high risk one, I work normal hours. 

What are your pregnancy cravings?
Haribo gummy bears :)

How long are you planning to stay at home after giving birth?
Again, I can consider myself really lucky that the social system in my country allows women to stay at home until the baby is 2 years old with statal support. Of course, the financial support is not as much as your salary but it is fantastic that  you can opt for staying at home.

If you have further questions, I am happy to answer them.

Thanks for stopping by.
