Christmas break has been really fun this year, it’s been packed full of cute activities and all the festive feels. Daytime beers, Christmas tree festivals, the panto, snacks all the time, seeing my favourite people for brunch and apparently only wearing monochrome outfits with statement cross body bags.
This outfit was brunching at home with my best girl wearing my favourite ASOS denim dungaree dress in washed black with a really thick and snuggly ASOS ‘Oatmeal’ knit. We caught up with her and her super cute sausage dog puppy and it was really fun. I love this jumper because it’s really thick, this cream one is similar, I don’t think the one I’ve got is on sale anymore – sad times. Paired with tights (obviously!) and my new fave Zara yellow crossbody bag which is actually now in the sale with a tenner off.
After brunch, we headed to Lacock Abbey, a National Trust property and checked out their super cute Christmas tree festival where all the local schools and teams that look after the Abbey design their own trees and it really got us in the festive mood! If you ever venture to Bath area then Lacock Abbey is worth a visit because it’s really interesting. It’s where they shot a few of the Harry Potter movies and we stood right where Harry and gang were chillin’!
I mean how cute is this little turkey?
When we got home from our trip down south we decided to look for some festivities we could do in the period between Christmas and New Year. We decided on the pantomime because Luke’s never ever been and we absolutely loved it, we saw Cinderella at the Nottingham Playhouse. I wore this super cute black Terrell Velvet Shift Dress from Tobi over a thin white knit from Missguided – apparently I only wear black dresses over white or cream knitwear at the moment! I really love velvet for the festive season and this dress is really flattering and also comes in a few different colours like burgundy and dark green.
