Merry Christmas Eve lovely readers! Hope you're all as excited about the festivities as I am :)
After several months of frugality since becoming a full time blogger, I finally gave in and treated myself to a few items in the last couple of weeks. Not the best timing, I know (seeing as Christmas is an expensive time of year anyway), but the seasonal sales and discount vouchers being thrown at me were just too tempting.
I desperately wanted to get something in tartan or plaid (aren't they the same thing?) and had my eye on slim leg tartan trousers, but these ones from River Island just didn't look right on me. So I reluctantly bought a pair of loose fit tartan check trousers from Asos - and I'm so glad I got these instead! Comfy, warm and a great colour combination. And I don't know which I saw first, but I was drawn to this gorgeous red tartan scarf from Romwe... and this was a bit of a major sartorial moment for me: I have never worn red next to my face before. Red trousers, red skirts, red bags, red shoes - but never red tops or sweaters. I always thought it would make me look very red-cheeked, but after dipping my toes in the waters of red for my top half I may just consider something else in the same colour. I've always longed for a classic red dress - what do you think...?
I'd like to wish everyone a VERY Happy Christmas - thank you so much for all the support you've shown and wonderful comments you've left me this year. I'm so happy to be doing this full time, and it's all of you that make it so much fun and so rewarding. Enjoy your Christmas Day, and I'll see you back here on Boxing Day for a quick hello!
