What to wear when going to choose a Christmas tree…

Remember the Zara cardigan (similar here) that I featured on my You Tube vlog right at the start of the “winter”? Well it has definitely secured itself in my affections, together with these Boden Harper boots which seem to be glued to my feet right now. The price of these boots varies by colour and the black ones are £59.50 which is a pretty good price for a pair of boots that are so versatile.

Yesterday we went to buy our Christmas tree (I have deja vu each time I write this – I must have been blogging for far too many years now!) and as it was very windy I popped on my Topshop bobble hat which was a present from my Mum last year. I figure that you can never go wrong with a bit of denim and so this Whistles denim dress came along for the ride too.

I’m glad to report that the tree is now up and stylishly (!) decorated with all manner of things that we’ve collected over the years. From kitsch and slightly camp, to delicate and fairy tale like and from sequins to felt – all with a bit of tinsel mixed in, it’s what one might call an eclectic mix – and not one that you would find in any interiors magazine.

    I've been admiring those boots – love them in the burgundy! Just bought leopard print block heeled ankle boots from Clarks of all places which look very mod/90's and love them – but now I've added yours to the list! Started Xmas decorating yesterday but have held off on the tree till later this week. How do you keep yours from drying out too quickly?
