It's feeling like Christmas!

This year's tree is white and silver with blue lights...
It's getting colder here, and it's feeling a lot like Christmas. Last Monday it was holiday, and we went to Rome to see the Christmas decoration. Then we came back home and did the tree. It's the usual fake one, but I switched decorations.
As for the presents, we decided to buy them only for thr children, and spend the amount destined to presents for a donation, just like last year.
I think this year my donation will go to Emergency, and maybe something to UNICEF too. I really like this tradition my sister started, I much prefer the donation than looking for a gift I don't even know how useful will be...
Baby's presents will be a dress I have already bought and a CD with children songs, since she likes them a lot.
Little cousin's present is a Christmas pajama, for big cousin we have a set of fruit scented bath soaps.
I am so happy and excited to celebrate Christmas this year with our little girl!

What I wore - at work.

Sweater - Only
Necklace - present from my sister
Jeans - Miss Sixty
Boots - Geox

Another casual work outfit. This is a new sweater, one of my two November purchases. I bought it as a replacement to a shirt that was getting very "tired", and it was a good choice. I think I'll layer something underneath when it gets colder.
I was alone when I bought these jeans, but these are another pair of "husband approved" jeans. His comment was something like (while looking at the baby) - your mom finally learned how to choose flattering jeans! Which could be a bit offensive, if I didn't know it was really tongue-in-cheek.

R.I.P. green dress.

Dress- Sandro Ferrone

I found out this morning I can no longer wear this dress. My hips have somehow widened during during pregnancy, so it doesn't fit well anymore. 
I am sad to say, I have to let it go. Hope it will fit my sister and she will like it...

What I wore - my mom-on-the-go outfit

Or at least, one of the outfits I throw on when I am in a hurry.
On Sunday morning the baby was getting fussy, so I decided we'd better take a walk, so she could relax and take a nap, while getting some sun and fresh air.
So, I threw on this outfit:

Sweater - Tezenis
Turtleneck - Tezenis
Leggings - Calzedonia
Boots - Nero Giardini
Necklace - Steph's mom 

It's comfortable like wearing pajamas, but a bit more refined. I met another mom (who is also a colleague) wearing a variation of the same outfit while walking with her two kids, so it's not like I had a breakthrough idea.
The boots have a great walkable heel, and the necklace adds a nice touch.
I bought this non-maternity sweater to wear while I was pregnant, and still like to wear it now - love when this happens!
And yes, baby really relaxed an took a nice long nap. And I got to buy a Christmas present for husband too!

What I wore at work

It has been such a long time since I published an outfit. I miss the days when I used to take almost a picture a day. I like to see what I was wearing two years ago, how my style has changed - or not.
So, this is what I wore at work:

Top - Lunatica
Jeans - Express
Boots - Geox
Necklace - Souvenir from Greece

It's so hot at work, especially with a lab coat on, that I have taken on wearing short sleeves. This top is from about 3 years ago, from a store I loved but that has since closed (sigh!). I wore a cardigan on top of it, just in case, but I left it on my chair the hole day.
The jeans were bought at Express in NYC during my honeymoon. Since husband is very opinionated about what I wear, especially jeans, he suggested me to buy them. And he still says they are one of the pairs that fit me the best. I don't know, still have to decide - or maybe I just don't want to admit he's right.
