Are You (Actually) Enjoying The Festive Season?

Countryside Fashion UK Blogger PhotoshootWith so many tasks, events, gatherings and alerts coming from all directions, it can be pretty easy to forget what this time of year is all about, right?  We're all so busy getting our decorations 'up in time', ticking gifts off our shopping lists and rushing from one get-together to the next, that at times, I'm pretty sure we're all falling into the trap of forgetting to relax.  After all, 'tis the season to be jolly, and 'tis not the season to give yourself a stress rash and constant tension headache.  Last year, I packed so much in that by the time January came around, I could barely remember half of the things I'd done the month beforehand.  This year?  A different story.  I'm just as happy to explore Christmas markets in Germany and attend festive parties, as I am putting on my softest loungewear for a night of ultra-romantic Christmas films and hot chocolate.  Four nights in a row.  So, with just 11 sleeps until Christmas Day, now is the time to ask yourself - are you actually enjoying your festive season?

Add To Basket: Black Patent Boots

Fashion blogger layering military coat in winter
Patent leather, vinyl, metallic - all that shiny, shiny good stuff!  It's back and (I'm very much hoping) it's here to stay.  The days are darker, layers upon layers are hidden underneath each other and we go through stages of feeling that little bit less 'sparkly'.  But there's a remedy!  Fierce high-shine clothing and accessories can feel like a ray of sunshine on a (literal) dark day.  My current obsession?  Patent leather boots.  They instantly transform an outfit and are totally on a level with the inner confidence that comes from wearing red lipstick...

Extra Chunky Knit Jumpers | Winter Wardrobe Hero

Autumn Winter Styling Khaki Hat Fashion BloggerHappy December!  Oh wow did the temperature drop all of a sudden!  I'm getting increasingly excited about heading over to Germany next week for the Christmas markets.  Although, this past week has reminded me of just how cold 2°C feels against your skin when the wind blows!  So, it's time to discuss all things cosy jumper related - we're talking thick, chunky knits that allow you to wear three layers underneath.  No problem.  The kind that trap the heat around your neck, cuffs and waist.  And the kind that look fabulous, but feel even better...
