cardigan:charity shop (laura ashley) jeans:fat face boots:h&m (& falling apart!) bag:the cambridge satchel company hat:hand-made

another piece of clothing to add to the "j hates" collection! as soon as i saw this cardigan i knew i would be buying it, and i also knew that j would despise it haha (does anyone else have a boyfriend like this?!) there is something so perfectly old fashioned about it, and i think it reflects the old school laura ashley knitwear to a tee.

i wore this today to go on a little ice skating date at the royal pavilion, it's been such a good day! i am completely terrible at ice skating, but i managed a whole lap around the rink by myself (with j hovering behind ready to catch me!) and didn't fall over once :)

it feels like an age since i had a little catch up on the blog, but i guess that's what happens when life takes over. i've been having so much fun at work which is incredible considering what my (non-existent) career was like this time last year, and i am loving every minute of it. i've also been feeling super festive for christmas, and i always end up reflecting on life more than usual around now; as corny as it sounds i am feeling so happy and thankful at the moment.

i've got a few more christmas diy's in the pipeline which i'll be posting about soon, and have also been busy doing a few knitting jobs for people which has made me realise how much i have missed it! i definitely need to get started on some new knitting projects- this hat was one of my first pieces actually, and i still love it 3 years later. 

i hope everyone has had a fab weekend and that you're all starting to feel festive- i'd love to hear how everyone gets into the christmas spirit :) 
also, if anyone has instagram then let me know, i use it far too much and would love some more lovely people to follow.
