Boxing Day bloat

So here it is – my last post of 2011. I can’t believe I started this blog just over five months ago… where does time go??? (Nearly at my half birthday, you know what that means…!) So to finish off 2011 this is my Boxing Day outfit: we always stay quite dressed up for the second day of yule in my family, but usually move onto trousers and comfy sweaters to hide our food babies. And I can tell you, my food baby was ma-hoosive – I was seriously sucking in my tummy on the second picture 😉

And the sweater… the sweater, the sweater!! This is another coveted item that I’ve managed to get my hands on recently. I’d seen it on Atlantic Pacific and My Style Pill (amongst others) this year – maybe I don’t quite rock it like those lovely ladies but managing to get any photos done on Boxing Day is quite a feat when all you want to do is drink tea, stop eating chocolate and curl up and sleep zzzzz…..

Mr. Summers and I are currently having a long weekend in London for New Year – hopefully there’ll be some good photos to post next week!

    That's a fantastic sweater, and the pearl collar looks great with it. I've been hesitant to buy a detachable collar, but now that I've seen so many people wear them with success I think I want one!
