Okay, so this is not the most inventive outfit in the world, but it is comfy and cosy which is what I’ve been going for lately. Before New Years I spent a weekend with my Grandparents in Surrey and this is what I wore for Sunday dinner and sales shopping. I got lots of lovely things for christmas, but one of my favourites was this Zara jumper that my mum bought me. I wear a lot of high-waisted things, and I think they look good with a cropped jumper like this! It also has a roll neck and it’s super soft.
My necklace was also a Christmas present. It’s from Waiste. I just love their jewellery and they sell the nicest vintage clothes – not surprising since the business is run by vintage boho blogger babe Sarah. I’m wearing Christmas nail polish too! The red is from Zoya and the glitter on top is Models Own. I’ve decided to only buy cosmetics that aren’t tested on animals (a blog post on that coming soon!) and nail polish is one of the easier things to find – I love Zoya and Models Own and they’re both bunny friendly!

What did you get for Christmas?
Last weekend I drove down to Oxford to visit my brother and celebrate his birthday with him. It was really fun, and I loved seeing his flat and his favourite foody places. We ate lunch at Atomic Pizza – a retro diner style cafe overflowing with comic books and pop culture memorabilia – I recommend a visit if you’re in Oxford! It’s such a beautiful city (although not as beautiful as York which I miss terribly, especially at this time of year.) On Saturday morning we wandered down to the river to watch some rowing, and Oscar took these photos of me outside Christchurch College. This coat is one of my favourite things that I’ve ever found in a vintage shop. The gold embroidery just kills me. It’s not super warm though, so I’m wearing two jumpers underneath. I decided to wear it with dungarees to make my outfit more casual!
My nail varnish is a silver polish from Nails Inc (It came free with Glamour!) with a sparkly Barry M shade over the top. They chipped really quickly but I think I might use this combination again anyway, because they’re so festive and sparkly! I’ve also bought a new pair of ear muffs. When I lived in York I cycled everywhere, and ear muffs were very necessary to stop my ears from freezing. They make me so much warmer, and they don’t make my head itchy like wooly hats do!

This week I’ve started to think about christmas shopping. This is actually quite early for me – I’m usually a buy-things-the-day-before kind of girl but I’m going to be organised this year! Have you started yet?
