A Tasteful Christmas Jumper, Leopard Print Boots and a Perfect Day in York.

Well, it's beginning to look very much like Christmas, so it's time to wear a Christmas jumper. Now I love sporting a flashing Rudolph across my chest as much as the next girl, but sometimes, it's nice to have a more stylish version that can be worn without needing to accessorise with a huge dose of irony. This is a lovely one and in fact I shared a picture of it on Instagram when I first wore it and it got a lot of compliments. I teamed it with my metallic leather-look mini (last seen with a sequinned sweatshirt), leopard print heeled ankle-boots, a matching leopard print bag and my long, red winter coat and wore it for a beautiful day out in York yesterday.

If you follow me on Instagram, you might also have seen that earlier this week I shared a picture of some beautiful flowers, so I think now is perhaps the time to say that I had been single since springtime and began tentatively dating again towards the end of summer. After a few very enjoyable dinner dates with some very nice guys, I went on to meet someone amazing who has been making me smile, (beam, sparkle and glow actually), for the last few months. He is everything I have ever wished for, and more, and reciprocates my feelings completely so we're both very excited to see what the future brings. Yesterday was a day of ambling through the crowded streets of York together, punctuated with a few glasses of fizz and some good food and it couldn't have been more perfect. Even the rain couldn't dampen our Christmas spirits.

I really don't have a poker face and that was the first time he'd taken any photos of me and it's completely different to having my daughter behind the camera. Thank you for commenting and following.

    1. Haha! I do of course have several photos of him and can report that he is totally gorgeous, but I'm going to keep him under wraps for now (until he gets used to the rather crazy world that is blogging and social media!!) xxx
