Today we celebrated Emilia's Uroma's 83rd birthday! Although it's technically not her birthday till the 26th, we always have terrible trouble trying to find a place that serves food the day after Christmas so we decided to celebrate on a different day this year! My Oma picked the restaurant and Emilia got the chance to wear her pretty pink corduroy dress! Yay! :) She is getting so much use out of all her outfits, ha ha ha! This ensemble is courtesy of her auntie Ruth and is entirely from Next (minus the bow which is Laynie Bug!). Everyone thought she looked absolutely adorable and she actually managed to keep the whole outfit on all day! (No poo explosions - woo hoo!)
Here are our outfits of the day together! I actually filmed a video on this but didn't get a chance to edit/upload so it will be up tomorrow instead! My cardigan/shirt/dress (I'm really not sure what to call it!) is from French Connection and looks waaaaay better on me when I'm not pregnant, ha ha! I remember hating how it looked a few months ago...probably because it was seriously unflattering with a bump, oh well! Underneath I wore a black Boob nursing top (this outfit is actually very breastfeeding friendly!), black ASOS jeggings and my furry black wedge boots are by Chinese Laundry!
The birthday lunch was in Hayfield Manor which was beautifully decorated for Christmas...they even had an upside down Christmas tree!! I couldn't believe it! This is so odd to me, at first I didn't even realise what it was supposed to be! What do you guys think of this strange trend?! I guess it's pretty eye-catching and it definitely makes you do a double take when you first see it but I don't know if I'd ever consider one of these for my own home, ha ha ha!
My lunch was delicious...I had the gnocchi with winter veggies - yum!! For dessert I had a mince pie and to my surprise they brought me out two so my Oma insisted I bring it home (she always asks for a doggy bag!). Hayfield Manor have cloth napkins so she rummaged in her handbag for a bit and then presented me with a tiny crumpled paper one to wrap it in...ha ha ha! She is so funny! I hope she had a good birthday lunch. Emilia enjoyed herself too even though she slept most of the way through it! Oh yes, and my sister Emma is home from Germany - yay! So Emilia will get to spend some quality time with her "Auntie Em" over the holiday season!
