My mum gave me this lovely vintage tea cup and the Cath Kidston table cloth. This year is marking a trend of me receiving joint items with D or simply more "grown up" presents- aka cook books, candles, wine glasses etc. I seem to have morphed from young woman who wants bags or clothes into a proud home maker (in people's eyes at least). I'm not sure how I feel about that as I don't feel at all ready to really settle down, living in the London rat race. I get itchy feet easily.
Anyway, Christmas was a subdued affair for me, my mother didn't buy a tree as she's now left for France for 3 months and obviously I'm not living at home. It was very strange waving her off, but hopefully I'll fly out to see her at some point.
As for the outfit- I found the shorts in the Topshop sale, the belt was my mother's, necklaces from market and Miss Selfridge, the shirt is vintage (but does belong to my boyfriend- as does the jumper), the jumper is amazingly cosy, a present from D's mother to him. Not sure what my hands are doing in the photo.
On other news, me and D are going to Berlin tomorrow, for New Year's! I've been before but thought it would be something different to do than the usual drunkenness with D's siblings in a North London pub. I hope to take lots of photos but hopefully not spend too much... (she says not at all convincingly) .
