Having been absent from my life since about Year Nine, over-the-knee socks have made a very warm welcome back into my life and my chest of draws. I feel like I’m channelling my inner Britney ~ Hit Me Baby One More Time ~ swapping the polyester grey school skirt, for a little chic-er leather All Saints mini. Someone pass the pink fluffy scrunchies.
I’ve finally finished sixth form for the Christmas after a very long term, so I thought a slightly festive post to due to mark the start of the holiday. Messing around with the camera, I’ve taken a few photos of some of the decorations up in my house over the Christmas period. Our tree is a mismatch of various decorations collected over the years and I especially love the delicate glass baubles, which seemed to have decreased in number over the year, due to my clumsy self. It wouldn’t be Christmas without a bunch of bright red ilex sitting on the mantle piece and they’re something my mum had bought year upon year for as long as I can remember. Whilst it’s not exactly a Christmas decoration, the gorgeous yellow drinks trolley, recently made by my Dad, is definitely a necessity over the holidays.
A very cosy Sunday attire for the start of some festivities, wearing winter whites (actually both garments are cream but we can pretend). The Christmas tree was bought and decorated in our usual mismatched fashion, with a ton of Christmas songs on full volume, competing with the rowdy bickering of four siblings; not evening a Christmas tree will prevent arguments. I felt very snuggly thanks to this lovely All Saints knit, a perfect addition to my wardrobe (which is quite limited in the knitwear department) and so this one is definitely a perfect addition and will be great for layering this season. I was kindly invited to the All Saints December look book event on Tuesday evening which was lots of fun and I got to try on lots of lovely pieces from the new collection – the ‘Rox blazer’ being a particular favourite. The sleek black silhouettes and intricate beaded dresses were definitely getting me excited for the Christmas party season, but for now it’s Nikes and knits only.
