The festive midi skirt


I can't believe Christmas is only days away! I'm currently snuggled up on the sofa in my reindeer onesie with a blanket enjoying a cup of tea! It feels SO good to be back home (& back in my own bed!) after living and working in the UK for 4 months. 2016 has been an interesting year to say the least, personally it's been filled with some wonderful memories of friends old and new, new experiences and personal growth. I finished University and got my degree with honors, I moved out of my flat of 3 years, I 'moved' back to my home country after 14 wonderful years in France, I got my first job... If 2016 has taught me one thing it's that you have to make yourself go out and experience life for yourself, do new things even if it scares you and even if you get nothing back from it. I've always told myself I don't want to be 'stuck' in one place but rather explore and revisit many, and luckily enough that's what I've managed to do.





Living in the UK has no doubt been the biggest challenge of the year. I went from living in the isolated french countryside to North London- one extreme to another. It's been difficult at times but so rewarding. I've learned alot and achieved alot, and it's opened up a world of opportunities.



 One of the best things about living in London is that you have access to hundreds of new things: shops, markets, restaurants, events, exhibitions.. The list goes on and on. Needless to say I've managed to develop my personal style quite a bit in my short time here so far thanks to my new monthly paycheck and access to Oxford Street! I got this gorgeous pleated sparkly/metallic midi skirt from Mango recently, it was just the piece I was looking for for the Holidays (though let's be honest I'll be out of my festive wear and straight into *hopefully* new pyjama's within a few hours hehe).
It has an elasticated band which is always a plus, but I added this new faux-leather belt from Stradivarius just to complete the look.

Happy Holidays to you all, and thanks for visiting and commenting on our posts this year! Always appreciated!
