With each passing year I become more and more excited about Christmas. This is obviously a special one since we'll be first time parents and Chipmunk will experience his first holiday. I look forward for all of December really. Making Christmas cards, eating our traditional Christmas meatball-date-dinner at Prinsen in Stockholm and going back to work for a few hours for the annual Christmas dinner with my colleagues to celebrate the past year and the one that's yet to come (they are going to have to do without me during 2020 since I'll be home with Chipmunk).
I look forward to smelling the Christmas tree and putting up the decorations. The baking and the quality time with family & loved ones. Maternity leave for all of December - that's luxury!
Psssst… the red beauties on the picture are pretty luxurious, too - I'm tempted.

I have all this wonderful energy today - I finally got some sleep. Pregnancy insomnia is quite common, so I've learned, and it has been making me totally bonkers. I wake up at 3 AM to clean the closets, read random articles on Wikipedia (I know all there is to know about volcano Etna now for some strange reason) and the online shopping. Let's not even go there.
I'm still in love with my white shirt from WeTwoStockholm that I got like six months ago. I actually didn't buy a lot of maternity wear at all - It's so boring - but instead a few high quality one-size pieces that will work wonderfully post-pregnancy as well and I'm qiute happy with that choice.
Chipmunk is rolling around in the belly, twisting and turning and he has these funny little hickups in there. Apparantly babies swallow water in the womb to exercise their little lungs for the outside world and they sometimes then get hickups. So cute.
Today I'm dreaming about classic elegance with an edge in black and gold. I love the slightly upwards pointing shoulder portions on the Saint Laurent jacket - I had a quite similar but less elegant jacket many years ago that I shrinked to unrecognizable proportions while accidentally machine washing it. La vie, la vie…
