Smokey layers

A couple of weeks ago, I attended my friend Cassie’s graduate exhibition at the Foundation Coffee House in Manchester. A couple of days earlier we had been shopping and I picked up a long tunic-style skirt and some lace brogues from H&M, which I decided to incorporate into my outfit. I don’t think I’ve ever bought such inexpensive shoes before but they are beautiful and surprisingly comfy.

I recently managed to put my workaholism aside in favour of some chill-out time. The weather has been quite warm recently but I was still lucky I managed to fit these photos in before the storm started!

My dad has adopted the Christmas jumper “thing” recently and insisted we all had to wear one on Christmas day. Luckily, I did manage to find the least disgusting one available and style it with some other amazing items I got around the same time.

Christmas day was pretty busy, as is to be expected, and I didn’t have time to take pictures so I re-wore the outfit at the end of a different shoot to show you.

The only pictures I took on the actual day are these:

I wore more jewellery on actual Christmas day as it’s tradition for me to wear everything that I get as a gift. More of this kind of thing on my instagram.

You can see how much bigger Odin looks in the image above compared to this one!

FullSizeRenderMy wonderful intern, Lindsay also bought me an instax for Christmas, which has reinforced my need to document all events with an instant photo.
