ZARA SUPER FLARES similar HERE
Christmas is approaching so I wanted to share a going out look. Yes I have mentioned the word Christmas already. I love Christmas, it is my favourite time of year. It’s all about family, staying home being cosy, looking back on your year and looking forward to a new future. What isn’t there to love? I particularly love Christmas because it was never great for me growing up. I always had the worst luck this time of year. One year my boyfriend at the time cheated on my the night before, then dumped me Christmas day in front of my family and I spent the day crying. The year after my a new boyfriend dumped me a week before Christmas. All the other years my dad was alway ill and in hospital. He was terminally ill and it was very serious for most of my life. My mum was always sad and exhausted and we never had much to celebrate. Family and health is everything and we were reminded at Christmas how bad it was for us.
This all changed when my dad had a double lung transplant. It was a miracle that both my dad and my family got a second chance. After this Christmas everything felt happy and we could be a “normal” family. I also met Paris shortly after and it seemed my life turned around. I feel like I have so much to celebrate and be thankful for. I have my own house now so I am in control of the happy home I live in. I want my home to be full of family and food and I can not wait to celebrate Christmas. Remember Christmas isn’t just about present and wearing sparkly outfits, remember the people that are worse off than yourself and if you can give to others please try to. But of course Christmas does include presents and outfits and we can’t forget that either!
I do not go out much so I don’t feel comfortable really dressing up, I think I used up all my dressing up days when I used to go clubbing four nights a week all through uni. I loved Faces and 195 🙂 I feel comfortable wearing trousers and a nice top, black trousers feel the most glam, it’s important to have a great pair of black trousers. I love flares because they are flattering.
It doesn’t have to be Christmas to get me into beading. I love beading and when there are pearls involved I am all over that s**t. This top is actually the matching top to the jacket that I wore in Paris here. I bought this top twice because Talluah chewed all the pearls off, literally 80% of them clean off. She also shredded the delicate fabric. It took me a year to find this top again, I was lucky enough to find it on the same website here. This one is a size bigger, I preferred the other size but I actually like the tied fabric at the back, as you can see in the first photo.
I recommend looking for vintage tops, the quality is good, prices are even better and the chances are low that someone else will be wearing the same top.
I included a photo of my dad and I to celebrate him still being with us. I also want to encourage signing up to organ donation. Not only can you save someone’s life you can save an entire family from loosing a loved one. Please sign up today here.
