I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas.
Despite the best intentions to be super organised in the run up to Christmas, everything went to pot and I ended up just abandoning everything in favour of a few days off. I realise I have hardly posted any outfits lately partly because of Christmas and also because I have been so busy with my 30 Days of Ethical Fashion Series. But I promise, I have not been wearing my PJs for the last week so here is a fairly long round up of outfits, pressies and other stuff from the last week.
I wore this outfit on a really cold day when I was feeling in need of something cosy and comfy to wear
Vintage St Micheal Cardigan – local charity shop
Leggings- People Tree
Vintage locket – a present
Boots – Po-Zu
Bag – Spartoo
This outfit is made of some really old clothes that I have had for years.
Dress – Vintage
Belt – handmade
Wedge boots – Topshop
These marshmallow snowmen are one of many attempts to keep the children occupied in the run up to Christmas.
On Christmas Eve, I decided to wear something sparkly combined with jeans for practicality.
Organic cotton jeans – M&S
Beaded top – Charity shop
Boots – Dream in Green (Spartoo)
These little mice gloves (my daughters) looked so cute peeping out of her pocket, I couldn’t help sharing them.
My outfit for Christmas day combined with my new favourite hairstyle, the top knot.
Lace dress – charity shop (originally Monsoon)
Vintage faux pearls – local vintage shop
Here I am wearing a Christmas pressy from my Mum and Dad, a red leather collar – I gave them a little help choosing this one.
Dress and cardigan – really, really old from Oasis and Topshop
Leggings – People Tree
Collar Rokit Recycled (from Offset Warehouse)
They also gave me this book about vintage hair styles. I can’t wait to try some out. It has some great photos and step by step instructions.
I also got a beautiful eternity ring from Mr Style Eyes (no pics yet as it has been returned for resizing) and my new Nikon camera, with which I took some of these pictures, I was really spoilt this year. My mum treated me to some other goodies including bath stuff, a New Look cardigan, which I will be featuring in an outfit soon and mulled wine sachets, which I will be drinking very soon. I also got some money with which I have treated myself to a new dress from Annie Greenabelle and a dress and hand knitted socks from the People Tree sale. By far my biggest bargain in the sales though had to be my macaroon cookery book at only £3, yet more to keep me busy in the New Year.
After a fairly busy and fun packed Christmas, we will be having a fairly quiet new year. I am going to cook a nice meal including Jamie Olivers 5 hour lamb and Blackberry tart for Mr Style Eyes and the girls. I do have just a few more lunches out planned before returing to normality in the new year.
What did you do and get for Christmas and what will you be up to for new year?
With warmest wishes
