The Outfit

Coat – Balmain // Jumper – Zara [sold out] // Jeans – River Island // Boots – Next // Bag – Marks & Spencer.

I have been dying to shoot this embroidered jumper for you guys and get it up on here as soon as possible. There is as always a slight story behind all my purchases. I found this jumper on the Zara website a while back but the description was advertising the coated jeans the model had on, and I searched the entire website for this jumper but couldn’t find it anywhere online and I had definitely not seen it in store. A few weeks passed and I finally saw that this jumper had been uploaded to the ‘new in’ section on the website but it was only in stock in a size large and quite pricey at £69.99. I clicked the link to get sent an email to notify me when the small and medium were back in stock anyway.

A week passed by, and I finally got an email to say the sizes were both back in stock but unfortunately by the time I had read the email after work it had already sold out again, but this time there was no email request option available and there was only a large left. I decided to order the large to see if I even liked it, luckily when it arrived I fell in love with the embroidery and decided it looked even better as an ‘over-sized’ jumper. As for the hefty price tag, its totally worth it as detail in the embroidery is very intricate and even better that I still happened to have a £70 voucher left over for there too. So technically it was free for me but I would have definitely invested in this if I didn’t have the gift voucher.

I can’t believe its only thirteen days until christmas. I finally started my christmas shopping on Saturday at last! I have left it quite late this year. I went to Cardiff with my parents as theres a lot more choice up there and we decided to book a table at Miller & Carter in the Bay, which unfortunately I only have pictures of our fancy ‘softails’ over on Instagram only as it was taking on my iPhone camera and the quality wasn’t great to upload here. I was lucky enough to get the majority of my shopping done in one day and I only have a few ‘odds and ends’ left to pick up. Finally feeling ahead.

I am very excited for Christmas this year as I am no longer working in retail and its the first year I have 10 days off and they days are already filling up with plans. I am finally feeling very christmasy this year as I know I can at least enjoy a few good lay ins and not worry about working a christmas sale.

Are you all organised for Christmas this year?
