Happy holidays guys! I was going to say Merry Christmas...but Christmas has kind of been and gone now, hasn't it? We're in that wonderful stage between Christmas and New Year which is pretty much made for slouching, watching films and a spot of shopping, am I right? I've binge watched Harry Potter (again) and been on so many frosty walks. Hope you've all had a relaxing break! I couldn't believe our luck when we went location hunting for some outfit photos this morning and were treated to sunshine and blue skies. I picked up this cosy check skirt from Primark on Christmas Eve (honestly the best time to shop there - so quiet!) for only £8. I was so tempted to get it in black too but they'd sold out in my size! I love the thick, cosy material - perfect for these frosty winter days.
I was also treated to some lovely bits for Christmas from my family, including some Elemis skincare (which I swear by), some new boots (which are the same as my old boots! Nothing wrong with replacing them with the same pair, right?) and this gorgeous River Island bag to replace my tatty tassel bag. Of course there's still a tassel or two, can't get rid of them that easily! I've seen a lot of hate on Twitter over Christmas with people slating others for sharing what they've been given, which gives me all of the sad feels. IT'S CHRISTMAS GUYS, C'MON. I think it's nice to see people so grateful for their gifts and I don't care if someone got a Range Rover or a box of pencils, I think it's lovely to see people sharing their appreciation. I'm a big Christmas fan, mainly for spending time with my family and sharing lazy days together, but I don't think there is anything wrong with showing gratitude for the gifts you've been lucky enough to receive. Who's with me?!
Aaaaaanyway, back to the outfit. I also received some lovely earrings chosen by my brother - rose gold and sea glass studs from Skagen. He knows my style too well! I've never been a massive fan of statement jewellery and usually opt to wear studs with a subtle twist. I was yet to own a rose gold pair so these fit nicely in to my collection! I love the sea glass too, they look slightly pearl-like and iridescent when they catch the light.
Hope you're all having a lovely Christmas break! Fingers crossed there aren't any unintentional Harry Potter quotes in this post as we've just been re-watching the last film - I don't know why I do it to myself, it's taken me nearly two hours to write this!
