Christmas at Shelly beach

Shelly beach, casual wear, sydney christmas on the beach, short shorts, fashion blog

This year instead of traditional abundance of food and carols, we decided to take it easy and celebrate Christmas at the beach. Effortless and pleasant our celebrations were. To tune in with that mood, I put together a simple ensemble in soft pink shades and even attempted to make a braid to complete the look. Also, it was first Christmas for little cheeky Anastasia. Here, see her happy face (and hands too)? I just could not resist but post a photo of her on this “supposed to be” fashion blog. Though, I think she looks quite fashionable in her bright stripes stretchy and ‘just out of the bed’ hair-do.

happy cute baby Anastasia

So that was our January December 25, 2011! What did you do, lovelies, for your Christmas?

    WOow I really like this “barefoot BOMBnextDoor” idea, § this caressing, enlacing light wraps you like a heavenly-like veil I must add !
    ps: Truly a Pleasure to “cyber clink” champagne glasses in your sweet § charismatic company Dear (“Kind aesthete’s smile”) !

    LOVE the photos and little fluff looks so CUTE!! We had a pretty relaxing one this year. Still had a feast but just the hubs, kids and I. No guests, no extended families…so it was pretty slow, easy and no need to worry about having the house all spick and span before guests arrive, because we didn’t have any! :) Merry Christmas to you Maria! And LOVE the photos too!!
