Last Christmas as a new Mum to a tiny 4 month old baby, I suddenly realised, that whilst I might not ever experience Christmas with the same wide eyed, wonder that I'd once had as a little girl, I'd soon get to see Christmas through the eyes of my own child. And I realised Christmas was about to become a little different and each year would start to get more and more magical again as our little boy begins to understand, and most importantly believe.
This year we're going out for Christmas dinner for the very first time. We've always enjoyed spending Christmas snuggled up indoors, in our pyjamas and having all of the family round for dinner, but this year we're stepping out of the kitchen to enjoy a dinner cooked for us and we're quite excited about it.
This year, I'm really trying to embrace winter instead of curling up indoors. And I've actually been enjoying our winter walks! The Darlington Coat from Crew Clothing Company has been keeping me toasty warm. It's such a beautiful navy, double breasted pea coat and is a classic piece that you can pull out every winter. I've also been pairing it with the Carrick jumper which is my new favourite piece of knitwear. It's so soft and cosy for cold winter days, and it's understated style means you can team it with so many pieces. Finally I just had to mention this beautiful Herringbone Stripe Scarf. I'm in love with the colours running through it and it can instantly make an outfit look put together and stylish.
