a merry little christmas

Shirt: Zara         Skirt: Topshop         Necklace: Internacionale

Merry Christmas, seasons' greetings and all that!
I'm back home for the holidays, which can only mean one thing - MORE TIME FOR BLOGGING! Hell yeah.

I've been back for a couple of days now, so I've had a bit of time to recover from the busiest term known to man. Well... known to me, at least. It's gone insanely quickly, but it's been so much fun. Sadly, though, I only have one term left of university now! Once summer hits, I have to go out into the real world and be an actual grown-up working adult human person... thing. This is terrifying. But also more than a little bit exciting.

ANYWAY, to the clothes. I wore this outfit for a christmas meet-up with a group of my closest friends from home - I thought the red shirt would be suitably festive! Pairing it with a skater skirt was a no-brainer, if you've read my blog before you'll know I'm hooked on them! Plus, it had been pre-established that we'd be eating lots of christmassy food stuffs during our catch-up (my contribution was homemade mince pies), so anything tight or body con was a no-go.

Fortunately, my favourite berry-red lipstick (Rimmel Colour Sensation in Hollywood Red) matched the shade of my shirt pretty perfectly, so I thought I'd go all matchy-matchy. I also decided a statement necklace was in order, since there were no prints or details involved. When it was time to brave the wintery weather and dash to the car, I simply threw on my black leather jacket and I was good to go!

Anyway, it's getting pretty late - as I type this, it's officially Christmas Eve! Albeit 2:00 in the morning, so it's not really "eve"...

Hope you all have a lovely Christmas!
Or, if you don't celebrate it, just a jolly good winter break!
I shall be posting again in a few days time. I promise.
