Today I wanted to bring a festive everyday outfit to you guys!
Ever since I saw Isabella Thordsen wearing this green fur, I fell in love with the color and look of the boxy jacket. I do have a beige fox fur already, but who doesn’t need another cool fur (faux)? I do. It is from the Loavies, which I think is based in The Netherlands, and I was so happy to learn that they also ship to the US!
I love poshing up (is that even a saying?) the plain ‘jeans and a shirt’ look with cool boots, furs, and fun accessories. The crossbody I’m wearing is from Aimee Kestenberg’s Autumn collection, so when one came return to the office from the warehouse I had to snatch it for myself. I love the embroidered golden stars on it and of course the size when I only need to bring keys, phone, and wallet.
One of my favorite activities that will guaranteed get me into the Christmasy mood is putting on a Christmas movie. So today I thought I would gather a little list for you guys! Maybe there are some movies on the list you haven’t watched yet, if not maybe you’ll want to watch them again (I re-watch movies all the time, which Edward never seams to understand). Do let me know in the comments down below, if your favorite movie is not on the list. I would love to watch new Christmas movies!
All of them. But mostly the first ones. I love the magic of Harry Potter and how it takes you to a whole other world (I have a little dream of visiting the Harry Potter museum in England and also going to Ballard!). I’ve had the movies on repeat on cozy Saturday and Sunday mornings while eating breakfast in bed. It is one of my favorite December activities.
This one is actually playing in the background as we speak! Such a Christmasy comedy that delves into different aspects of love seen through different peoples lives. They all end up having some sort of connection in the end of the movie. This one is definitely a favorite, taking place in one of my favorite cities in the world; London. I can’t even choose my favorite scene, but if I had to… no, I can’t.
Another Christmasy comedy! This one is about the characters Amanda and Iris, two lovelorn women from California and London, who temporarily exchange homes to escape heartbreak during the holiday season. Full of love, coziness, and laughter. I love this movie so much, that I actually posted a photo of Iris’ house on Instagram the other day dreaming of spending Christmas there.
A Christmas Carol
This one I was introduced to this year actually. I was watching Freeform (a channel that shows 25 days of Christmas movies non-stop) and there it was. It’s such a lovely story taking part somewhere in Britain. I love that it’s animated, and then all the magical music appearing throughout the movie!
A silly Christmas comedy starring Will Farrell as one of Santa’s Elfs. He learns that he’s actually a human and goes to New York City to meet his biological father. The movie is filled with cute and funny moments, and lots of Christmas cheer. A movie for the whole family!
I’m loving this month! And because I’m in such a festive mood, I have so many favorites to share with you! Hopefully they’ll all bring you as much joy as they bring me. Some are Christmas-y, some are just everyday stuff. Let’s go:
1. I’m loving Vlogmas. I grew up watching the Christmas calendar on TV in Denmark, and it’s just a tradition I love. An episode every single day, and thanks to the many talented YouTuber I now watch vlogmas and get that same lovely, festive feeling. My favorites are Zoe Sugg, Tanya Burr, Naomi Smart, and Lydia Elise Millen.
2. Snow! It’s acutally snowing this December. I feel like it happens so rare, that we should really appreciate the white Christmases we get. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
3. English Breakfast Tea. I know this is a very normal thing and probably a part of many people’s morning routine. But for the longest, I’ve been drinking black coffee in the morning. One cup. Every single morning. And for some reason I started switching that up a little bit. Now I’m loving my English Breakfast Tea with a dash of soy milk.
4. All the beautiful decorations in Manhattan. I showed you some of the good ones in this vlog, and also post a lot on my Instagram.
I’m starting to think about what to wear on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and while scrolling through the many pages of festive wear I thought some of you might need a little inspo on that note as well. I think key to a good Christmas Eve outfit is something loose, that will hide the food-baby you for sure will end up with, and then I think some glitter or velour is the way to go. But there are so many good choices, so below I’ve chosen some of my favorites.
Also, ASOS is having 30% off gifts until December 21st and below dresses are all from this sale. Happy shopping guys! Let me know what you’re wearing on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day guys. <3
So crazy how fast December is going. Today I’m coming at you with the second December Vlog. I take you around New York City to see some of the beautiful Christmas decorations, we go to Apollo Theater for Amateur Night Christmas Edition and bake Holiday cookies. AND it started snowing in New York!
Thank you so much for watching guys! I hope you like it. Remember to subscribe and give the video a thumbs up if you do!
