What I Wore // Festive Fair




Hat: Accessorize
Scarf: New Look
Gloves: Etre*
Long Jumper: Next
Velvet Leggings: American Apparel
Coat: Jane Norman
Bag: Zara
Boots: Hunter

I'm not sure exactly when I started loving Christmas like a kid again. The joy faded as I reached my teenage years, but over the last couple of years December is just as exciting than summer months and I want to delve into absolutely everything remotely Christmassy. Dan had a photography stand at our villages Christmas fair so I went along to lend a hand, take some festive photos and stuff myself with bratwursts and inevitably lose my toes to Jack Frost. 

I did try to wrap up warm - I bought these leggings purely for the thickness and warmth, put a cosy hat on, and popped my new gloves on. These gloves are functional as well as awesome. I know you can get gloves with touchscreen ability for use with smart phones, but thats not my main issue when I'm trying to take pictures manually on a DSLR. These gloves only half cover the index finger and thumb, leaving my two most functional digits to change settings on my camera and use my phone as normal without faffing around. 

 I'm not going to Winter Wonderland this year (It was so busy last year it was more frustrating than fun) so I'm looking for more local celebrations and its going well so far! I met fellow blogger Victoria too, who happens to live in the same village. Small world! 
Have you been to any Christmas fairs and markets?
