Something Old, Something New :: Hello December!

Can you believe it’s December? I want to say no, not yet! Give me another week! But a secret part of me just cannot wait until I am sipping a festive tipple and spending quality time with family and friends. I do love the first week of December though. For me, it’s a time to make plans and start looking forward to Christmas!

Plans that won’t come cheap, but will be so much fun. Because of an exciting couple of weeks on the horizon, I’m saving as many pennies as possible. Maybe you’re like me, to save money I’ve stopped buying key pieces and buying accessories to style new outfits from clothes I already have. Delving deeper and deeper into the wardrobe has its perks, I’ve discovered forgotten gems and salvaged clothes I may have otherwise thrown away. Like this sailor-nap blouse.


Say, what? Yes, I just can’t bear to part with this blouse despite a big, black ink stamp stain right in the middle  of it following a Widowspeak gig. This Henry Holland jumper is perfect to hide its guilty secret. Even though it’s about two seasons old, I simply love it. I’m a sucker for a jumper with an animal on, especially a zebra. 

This week, my hat finally arrived. I blogged about this hat, deliberated over whether it would fit me and then finally bit the bullet and bought it. I love it, as you’ve probably spied on Instagram. It’s the best £3.74 I’ve ever spent (this month, that is). Did I mention? New shoes!

When ShoeZone asked me to select a pair of shoes to try out, I jumped at the chance. I was in desperate need of a pair of flat boots and a pair for free seemed too good to be true. Sometimes, you just want to give an outfit a little extra edge and for me, I always seek out flat boots. These suede effect Chelsea Boots have satisfied my longing, I love the studded detail on the heel.

As I’m still not well (still! Sniff, sniff), I haven’t ventured far from home. Saturday was a blur of coughing and napping after sleepless nights spent coughing. Urgh! But today, cabin fever forced me out of the door and into town for a few treats to fill the children’s advent calendar with tomorrow. Bless. 


How has your weekend been? 
What have you been up to? 
Have you been making plans for Christmas?

 
As always, much love,
