I already posted this look on my Chictopia and Lookbook this morning as a kind of preview on this post (and because I had nothing to do while drinking my morning coffee). So here is the recap of Christmas Day and what I wore.
I got this lovely floral print mix dress via Ebay for about 10 bucks and I was so afraid it wouldn't fit because I never owned something from Urban Outfitters before, but then it arrived one day before Christmas Eve and fit perfectly so I totally had to wear it.
You probably can't really see it but it has a cute Peter Pan collar :) Plus florals? Plus more florals? I like!

On Christmas Day I drove from my mum's place to Patrick's parents to have lunch with them. We didn't go to a really chic restaurant, but it was an occasion to dress up a bit so that was the chance for my new dress. I thought the clash of floral prints would stand out enough on its own so I combined it with simple black pieces and the skinny belt to match the brownish florals. Unfortunately - as you can see - the belt kept sliding away from the waist, that's why it's dangling around my tummy instead. Very chic *cough*...
After lunch my Christmas journey went on: I visited my friend Farah (who gave me the loveliest measuring cups for baking), my friend Thomas, his family and the dear dogs and met with my mum to visit my grandma in the retirement home.
It was a bit sad because her dementia is getting worse, she hardly speaks because she's lacking of the right words. You can see that she's trying to find them when she tries to speak but then she can't and I don't know if it really is like that, but to me it seemed like she realizes that she doesn't remember words and when she tries to tell us something and we don't understand her that makes her sad. And she can't get out of bed anymore because her circulation collapses when she sits up. However she smiled all of the time when we sat by her bed and sang Christmas songs for her :)
Here is a little collection of photos from my Christmas Day:

no that's not the lunch at the restaurant (it's potatoe salad and sausages for dinner)
Patrick parent's have two cats, this is Looky...
... and here under the Christmas tree :) She's called Looky because of her cute looks - obviously.
And this is Mimi her sister.
I hope you enjoyed today's post. I know I can always get you with kitty cat pictures, can't I? ;)
Tomorrow there'll be the last Christmas recap about how I spent Boxing Day and then the Christmas themed posts will be over for this year - just in time to do a blog recap for 2011. And I also still need to prepare my summing up favourites post for december. Ah so much ahead....
Have a lovely day!
