my first christmas abroad

Hello loves!

I'm a bit late but here is my Christmas outfit! Hey, at least it's still December.
It would have been embarrassing only if I hadn't managed to post it before New Year's Eve, so it's still okay.
This year it was my first Christmas away from my family and friends and instead the first Christmas with my boyfriend's family - so many first times, wow! Let's just make it short and sweet: it was something special so I wanted a special outfit.
I had bought this lovely dress shortly after my arrival in Perth on my first shopping spree in the city and I already knew that I would have to wear it for Christmas. I mean golden stars, red belt, green cardi, come on! It couldn't be more perfect!
It turned out to be the right choice because we had 35°C on Christmas Day and I was happy to wear something light and breezy.

cardigan: thrifted
dress: dotti
belt: thrifted
shoes: h+m

 We spent Christmas Day with Jarryd's family at his sister's place so we could watch his little 1,5 year old nephew unwrap the presents. Such a little cutie!
He is still a bit too young to understand the whole concept of Christmas presents but he had lots of fun tearing the wrapping paper apart and trying out all his cool new toy cars and trucks. We also had a lovely brunch together and then just hung out for a while.
Later that day Jarryd and I grabbed a coffee at the 24/7 McDonald's (because we are so classy) and went to the South Perth Foreshore. It was hot but with a little breeze by the water and the Perth skyline showed itself in all its beauty as usual.

We took a little walk around too and watched the cute birdies but they were too shy to let us come really close. Well, I managed to get these two snapshots at least.

That was my Christmas 2014 - very different from all past Christmas Days in my life. I still had a lovely time though and it was really interesting to see how Australians celebrate, what they eat, what they do etc.

I hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas too.
Have fun tomorrow celebrating New Year's Eve!

  9. Your Christmas dress looks beautiful! It must feel very different celebrating Christmas "down under" in Perth, Australia due to Christmas occurring during Summer there? Your cardigan is a lovely and Christmassy shade of green and your gorgeous snow white Dotti dress with its gold snowflake print is also very Christmassy. The waterfront locale and your photos are fabulous. I hope you have a very happy year 2015!

  10. This is such a cute Christmas outfit for a sunny warm day! I love the combination of the green cardigan and red belt. This dress looks amazing on you too. It sounds like you had a really nice holiday in a totally new place!
