It's officially 1 week till Christmas today, yay! Sorry for the festive outburst! I'm never usually very excited about this time of year but being away from home and moving somewhere so big has made me look forward to cosy nights in with my family. It is also my last day working at French Connection tomorrow which I'm really sad about. I've had such a great experience and learnt so many new things, and definitely taken advantage of the freebies and sample sales! Today I wore these lace floral printed trousers which I bought in the sample sale yesterday. I'm crazy about print at the moment so these suit my current style. I especially like this floral print because it's different to all the gothic/ baroque styles around at the moment and they could be switched up to be worn in the Summer. I paired it with this white studded blouse and layered my AA fisherman knit jumper over the top to keep me toasty. This is one of my all time favourite jumpers, I love the style of knit and the yarn doesn't itch or scratch so it's perfect.

Today also marked the day of the return on my turnip! I haven't worn my hair like this for so long, I've been wearing a pony tail most days because the tubes are so windy but I'm bringing it back. I'm really looking for a new day hair style at the moment. I love Grace and Braver's hair tutorials so might take some inspiration from those, if you haven't already take a look they're incredible and really simple to follow!
