Tartan. Again.

I’m not sure what it is with me and tartan this winter but I am loving it. This dress, bought from this lovely lady’s blog has to be one of my favourite purchases, I was planning to save it for Christmas day but it calls to me whenever I open my wardrobe. It also happens to be the perfect partner for my Yull Chelsea Boots which are hands down my most worn shoes ever and money well spent!

So glad this crazy week is coming to an end, after today I will be in full on festive mode (be warned) and ready to embrace the spirit of the season. I’m aware I’ve been a little bit grumpy lately, it’s not the easiest time of year for many people, something about Christmas seems to throw up a multitude of emotions and the dark, long days don’t help…but we’re survivors folk and we’re going to get through. I have a good feeling about 2013, I’m determined to make it the year I succeed.

I’m finding out later today if I can finally ditch the crutches, please keep everything crossed, I’m longing to get some independence back (and it’s a step closer to walking in heels again!)

Never stop believing it.

  1. Aw you know what, I love everything about this post!!! It made me smile muchly. I will be keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you today hun, but remember if they say you need them for longer it is only for your own good and you can just jazz them up with tinsel again!! Lol.

    I absolutely adore you in this dress, you look like a victorian porcelain dolly, so sweet!! I can see why you couldn’t wait to wear it, something about it has ‘Laura’ written all over it.

  8. Not surprised you want to keep returning to tartan – it’s glorious! And it always make me think of wintery good cheer. I adored Corrie Nielsen’s use of tartan in her AW12 collection and would love to sashay around in some of her floor length pieces.

  12. O girly you look way too adorable in this wee tartan dress. Like an actual doll! x

  13. Tartan is always really cosy and cute at this time of year and I love you in that dress and boots. I think most of us get a bit more introspective than usual around Christmas and New Year, hope you’re feeling okay and enjoying the festivities. xx

  14. You do love your collars don’t you?? I do too ha ha x

  15. Tartan always reminds me of Christmas time, I think it’s because I used to have a tartan dress when I was little and my Mum would always dress me in it for Christmas day!
    Ditto- I’m with you, 2013 will be a great year, one I am determined to succeed in xxx
