I have another clothing haul to show you. These are all pieces I bought last weekend. I went to buy a last Christmas present and a couple of these items, but I found a couple more things I liked. As you can see, I’ve added another Christmas jumper to my collection. I couldn’t resist the cropped Mickey Mouse Christmas jumper at H&M. It is so cute and so comfortable. I went in to H&M to find the Bambi jumper which is again so cute and so comfortable. When I saw the burgundy velvet jumper at Monki, I had to try it on, and it’s the most comfortable and cosy jumper I’ve ever worn! The black velvet top with gold shimmer is what I went in to Monki for, and it’s perfect for the Christmas season. Monki had a 3 for 2 deal on socks, and I love cute socks, so I got two stripy pairs and a Christmas pair. Lastly, I found the red beret which I wore with this outfit in a second hand store, and it’s a really great quality beret. I used to wear hats more often, and I really want to start doing that again.
Here’s what I wore Thursday December 14. This is one of my Christmas jumpers from last year, and I still love it. I’m loving the red socks as well; I thought they were perfect for this outfit.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m obsessed with the Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Poinsettia. It’s the perfect Christmas lipstick, and I thought it matched the sequins on my jumper so well.

Here’s what I wore Monday December 11. How amazing are these flared, corduroy trousers! I’m in love with this whole outfit. I never thought about pairing bright red and burgundy, but I was inspired by one of my favourite fashion youtubers and bloggers, Megan Ellaby.

I have a few clothing items to show you that I’ve collected over the past month or so. I didn’t own a simple, black roll neck top, so I ordered one from Boohoo on Asos. I’ll wear it on its own or underneath a cami top. I found the pink and white, stripy long sleeve top on sale on H&M’s website, and I had to have it. I love stripy tops and the colours and the little embroidered cherries are so cute. I bought the burgundy, shiny cami top at the same time as the stripy top, and I thought it would be perfect for a Christmas party. Especially layered on top of the black roll neck top. And last but not least, one of my favourite purchases in a long time; high-waisted, flared, deep burgundy, corduroy trousers. In the beginning of October I started my hunt for a pair of corduroy trousers, and I actually saw these at H&M, but they only had one pair left and they were not in my size and no other H&M store had any left. So I went on the website, and I didn’t buy them until about a month ago when they were in stock in my size. They are exactly what I was looking for; super ’70s inspired and so gorgeous! My next post will be an outfit featuring these amazing trousers.
Here’s what I wore Wednesday December 6. Another outfit in a black, white, and red colour combination, but this time a more christmassy version. I didn’t take pictures of my make-up for this look, because it was similar to make-up looks I’ve posted before. Because a lot of my make-up looks in December will be very similar, I won’t be posting my make-up looks for all my christmassy outfits, but for some of them I will.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. December is obviously the month of red lips, but my ‘tree rex’ jumper screamed for a green lip, and I still find this make-up look very christmassy.
