Watch, Fossil // Statement Necklace, River Island // Opague Tights, Primark
I think this Berry skirt from River Island is perfect for Christmas, and love how it looks with the camel coat. I picked it up back in November for €22, is it just me or have high street prices come down a bit? Its very thick material and good quality so I was very pleased with the price tag. I purchases this knit sweater in New Look, I rarely shop in New Look but I was pleasantly surprised to find this jumper. It’s so comfy and hangs really nice, I love the back.

I wore this outfit out for pizza and wine last week while on a Christmas trip to Belfast. You can see another outfit post from the trip and a Belfast Photo Diary here and here. 

I purchased these Topshop ankle boots last year after lusting after them for quite awhile, they became so popular with bloggers and inspired so many similar styles from other high street stores. They are perfect with black opague tights, I always go for really thick dark tights, especially in Winter. Also for Winter I always rely on leather gloves, these were a gift from my sister the Christmas before last. The colour is so unusual, I love them. Leather gloves are so classic and perfect with a folded up sleeve crombie or cape coat (see here).

Here is yet another statement necklace but this one is quite different, I love how it’s made up of material with gold and small pearls. There are so many gorgeous statement necklaces out at the moment, they really are a must have accessory. Also, I think, they are not just for night time wear, why not pair a chunky statement necklace with a woolen jumper or worn over a buttoned up blouse.
