I'm a fire and I'll burn burn burn tonight.


I've missed this spot. I haven't had time lately to take photographs outside, and we have so little sunlight these days. I am dreaming about the return of longer days, and saying goodbye to shivery afternoons.

Thanks to New Look, I've got quite the collection of knee-high boots now. It's such a novelty finding them that fit me so well! These are my latest pair, which I'm tempted to buy in black too. They are basically lush.

Speaking of the boots, when my sister asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I gave her a choice. Be creative - if she wanted, and could find the time in between bringing up an adorable baby - or get me the black boots. And she got creative, which is secretly what I wanted. When it comes to special occasions I rarely have a gift list prepared - and getting surprises is so much nicer. And this rust coloured dress was a fabulous present - I've already worn it loads and Christmas was less than a month ago. Definitely a new favourite.

This is going to be a dress themed weekend, I think - tomorrow I am off to a wedding (thanks to Twitter for some serious wedding outfit help this week) and then our annual family Christmas do on Sunday. I'm looking forward to having a good old gossip with my sister - oh, and lots of baby-cuddles.

  8. I love the dress and this really is a pretty location. I'm a night owl and I'm looking forward to the longer days too, I just feel more rushed in Winter but with no energy to do anything.

    Anyway, you look so pretty and I love the way your hair looks!

  12. gorgeous dress, love the pattern and ruffle on it...lovely!

    I have to agree with the surprise present choice...often when I get asked I give general ideas as I'd much rather see how well people know me, and feel the love when they get it right!
