"My little one, my kettle drum"

Jumper: H+M
Playsuit (worn underneath) and Shoes: Primark

It's officially the beginning of the festive season- my advent calendar has been started, the Christmas songs have been on all day and its only 24 days until Christmas Day!!! (not that I'm counting down or anything). I've popped back home for the weekend for an early Christmas get-together with my extended family- cousins, uncles, aunties, grandparents. It's something we do every year and take it in turns to host. We went out for a yummy turkey roast with ALL the trimmings (I now can't move). This is what I wore for it, my trusty pink jumper (hopefully you aren't all sick of the sight of it by now, I promise I own more than one!) and this playsuit with the embellished collar which you can see closer up below, I'm not sure why one side of my hair looks a different colour to the other!!

With just two weeks left of term at Uni and all of my essays for the term done I'm looking forward to decorating the house this week- any bare surface will be covered in tinsel, paperchains or fairy lights! And baking mince pies to my hearts content. Currently writing this whilst listening to my favourite christmas songs, I think my all time favourite has got to be between these 3:

  1. The Pogues- Fairytale of New York
  2. Shakin' Stevens- Merry Christmas Everyone (cringy but a classic!)
  3. Mariah Carey- All I Want For Christmas Is You (don't hate)
Comment below with what your favourite is from these or any others- want to see if there is an overall winner! Watch out for another post coming tomorrow.


  1. Gorgeous outfit! Love the pink and the collar! :)
    Super jealous that you've finished all your assignments, I have two deadlines, one being on the 14th, the day we break up, rubbish! xx

  2. Love the jumper and blouse combo! :)

  3. I love your jumper! I can't wait for Christmas too! Sophie xx

  4. Seen a couple of smarty shirt and jumper posts today and think I'm going to use it as inspiration for my work outfit tomorrow! The Pogues is obviously a favourite Xmas song, and embarassingly enough I love Britney's Christmas song haha! I guess the cheesy pop love makes up for me not being a Mariah fan! :/ Love your blog, heading home to the countryside at the weekend and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside :) xx
