DUAL TEXTURE

Jumper - &otherstories, Skirt - Zara, Neckalce - Aland (HK), Shoes - Converse
I absolutely love my new jumper. & Other Stories have been open a little while now and I always make sure to pop in the store whenever in London but this is the first time I've actually bought an item of clothing from there. I took advantage of a temporary offer on the website and this lovely quilted, cropped sweater soon arrived on my doorstep. I could have done with getting the XS size rather than S but it doesn't bother me too much. It's so cosy and proved to be the perfect partner for wandering around a freezing cold Christmas market in Birmingham. I chose to wear it today with one of my favourite skirts from Zara - I love the contrasting textures.
Advent
In other news, I can hardly believe we have hit December - breakfasts from now on will include a chocolate from my trusty advent calendar and I'm pleased to say our yearly parcel for our family is now well on it's way to Hong Kong - including some fun homemade Christmas cards.

christmas card 2 I'm also pleased to say that 90% of my Christmas shopping is done too but I must admit I've been treating myself to a few things along the way - the stories jumper is prime evidence of this, oops!

  4. I recognize that necklace! Definitely a good buy if you ask me. :P
    Hehe and yes to chocolate for breakfasts. Last year I bought an advent calendar from M&S but purely for the packaging and I'm pretty sure it's floating around somewhere in my storage.
    You ought to spend X mas in HK some time.

  8. Love the skirt! It's beginning to get cold here in Texas and I am layering up as best as possible. After seeing your photo, I just realized that I don't think I have ever had an advent calendar. If so, it has been many years ago! Love the idea of homemade Christmas cards! Hope you're doing well! Happy December! :D

  23. I always think it is great to get the Chritsmas shopping out of the way to enjoy the socialising near to christmas. Love the necklace and the combination of textures in your outfit work together really well. I love it when an outfit has interesting detail.
