Living for the Weekend

 I'm so into the festive mood that I'm trying so hard to refrain from giving my blog a little xmas makeover. I guess this means that I'm over-compensating with the festive wardrobe. Yep, I bought the obligatory festive jumper last week. 

I also bought this tartan mini, which I've been dying to show you. It's uber short, maybe even too short to warrant tights- I think this one might be a leggings job, if only because it's a bit chilly. This dress is a big contender in the run for my christmas day outfit- even if it's the exact same pattern as my old, pleated, tartan school skirt. I definitely don't miss that uniform.

I know it's only Monday but I'm living for the weekend already. There's a bag of popcorn and some marshmallows in the cupboard, waiting for me and the Love Actually dvd.

Finally, what are your thoughts on another one of my new purchases- my lipstick. I finally caved and bought Rimmel's Kate Moss Lasting Perfection Lipstick in 107, because it's so darn christmassy and everyone talks about how nice it is. (I agree) I think it's the icing on top of this outfit- expect it to make many reappearances throughout the winter months.

  10. Oh dear, this tartan dress is AMAZING. Such a perfect holiday dress! I used to abhor plaid as a little girl (my mom made me wear it too much), but as I've grown older I continue to like it more and more. The Kate Moss lip stick looks beautiful on you too--I think you all over in the UK have a wider variety of them than us in the US! x

  11. Wow I love the dress! Thanks for stopping by, sure we should follow each other, following you now on GFC, now waiting for you!


  12. Your dress is SO gorgeous combined with your lip color; berry looks awesome on you! I am thinking I need to join the tartan bandwagon, haha. And I am so jealous of your weekend plans- Love Actually and food! Could it get any better than that? I hope you have a nice weekend! :) Great look!
