Wearing at Christmas {featuring the Hermes Nuees Imaginaires (!!) }

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Happy Boxing Day!

Do you like to wear new things as soon as you receive them? I sure do:

I think flannel jammies (Target, last year) are perfectly acceptable with Hunter boots just out of the box on Christmas morning. Later in the day my Dad's cousin brought over my great uncle who was up from out of state for a visit. We haven't seen him for seven years, so I did need to get dressed:

Of course I was happy to tie on the gorgeous Hermes Nuees Imaginaires. My eight year old orchestrated this gift... she doesn't know the pricing at that shop -- she just admires the beautiful artwork and fabrics -- and she convinced my husband this exact one, in the light blues with the spring green border, with clouds in the shapes of fancifully colored and detailed imaginary animals, was for me this Christmas. I absolutely love it. My sweater (the Piacenza Top in Gold) is one I bought during the Anthropologie 50% off sweater sale, with an Old Navy tank underneath.

I also wore these beautiful earrings from Kendra Scott. Love her designs:

I'm wearing the scarf again today:

I'm switching out the boots for Ugg slippers soon, as I don't plan on going anywhere today. Tomorrow I do though, and you can bet I'll be carrying this:

This is such a great, classic bag and I'm thrilled to have one. I think it deserves a vlog, like I did for the Modalu London Bristol/Pippa. I'll try to get on that soon.

Hope everyone is enjoying the start of the week! I'm off to drink tea and watch a Poirot (that I got too sleepy to finish last night) by the fire with a dog on my lap, while the kids are happily assembling a Harry Potter castle with their dad. I love when he takes some time off.



  1. Glad you had a great Christmas, we did too!!
    Love the Hunter rain boots..i really have been thinking of getting some...and that scarf is GORGEOUS!!! Currently dressed in my target ugg fake slippes and cozy pj's on the couch, looking at all the new plastic in my living room!! (kids toys, heehee:))

  2. Dear Sparrow&Sparkles,
    I'm glad to hear you had a wonderful Christmas, as we had in Berlin too. Since the KaDeWe now has a new Hermes-Shop...I got a beautiful scarf from Bulgari - they have a shop there too, and I had seen one (and remarked to Husband about it) which has absolutely all the colours in it I like! So great! Poirot I love dearly, with David Suchet - but this year we enjoyed ""Sherlock - A Study in Pink" with beautiful Benedict Cumberbatch on the 2nd day of Christmas.
    I wish you a Happy New Year! Britta

  3. Your kid has good taste! :) It's very pretty!

  4. The scarf is lovely and you know that the Mulberry Bayswater is my absolute favorite handbag. Timeless..I'm quite fond of mine! :) Happy Holidays!!

  5. I LOVE the scarf it's beautiful! Your bag has me drooling! Sounds like a wonderful Christmas!! I can't wait to see more about that cute bag!

  6. I wish you a wonderful holidays! I spent some quality time with my family and Mr Paula's family. I love it, when 3 generations sit around a big table, one of the best moments Christmas provides.

  7. Dear Britta - we watched A Study in Pink again also as I wanted to show my mom, who also likes detective stories and mysteries. I agree David Suchet and Cumberbatch are both wonderful. Enjoy your new scarf! xx
    Rose, Diary of a Domestic Failure and Tricia - thank you so much! :)
    Paula - oh yes! I was able to get a pic of 4 generations of the men on my Dad's side... My great uncle, my father, and my brother, who all live in different states, with my son. I am very happy to have that photo!
    Happy holidays!
