It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Beaded Jumper - Topshop
Velvet dress worn as skirt - Charity Shop
Shoes - Primark
Bag - Max C of London
Jewellery - Vintage

This was my outfit on Sunday. The snow was falling and I was off to the Ballet with my mum and sister to see 'The Nutcracker' - We felt very sophisticated! It was a lovely afternoon and the ballet was absolutely amazing. It makes me really wish I had taken dancing when I was younger... This jumper always puts me in a festive mood. It's one of my favourites but I hardly wear it because the beads are so delicate - only worn for special occasions! :) The skirt is actually a dress, which I got from a charity shop. It was a full length gown but my mum took up the hem for me and made it shorter. I love wearing velvet, especially at this time of year. Finally, I like to refer to my necklaces as the three bears. The bears are completely different but I like wearing them as a combination. One belonged to my grandma, one belonged to my mum and the other was bought for me. 

This year, because I had a lot of coursework to get done, everything Christmassy was passing me by, but after this weekend, i'm in full blown Crimbo mood. I've bought pretty much all my presents and have had the Christmas music on whilst wrapping up! :) Absolutely can't wait for Sunday!

AHHH. Woke up today and was full of the cold. Totally sucks. I can't breathe and now living off of cuppa soup. The only thing getting me through the flu is good old Christmas movies. Today i'm going to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas and Love Actually.

 Can you guys think of any other Christmas movies I can watch?


Oh and here is a wee picture of my Christmas tree this year. Put it up on Sunday morning when all the family was home. :)
