Christmas OOTD & December Giveaway!

Hello everyone!

I have really been wanting to get into the Christmas mood, but that has been neigh on impossible when exams start tomorrow. It's taking all my time and consuming all my thoughts. So, in order to get a bit more Christmassy, I thought I would do a Christmas related OOTD. I wanted to do this but got a bit stumped as to what I could wear. However, the idea presented itself in the colours red and white - which for some reason I find to be pretty Christmas themed? I think this is because of Santa Claus himself. So I made an OOTD from it! I'm wearing a white crop jumper from Bershka and also some red jeans from Pieces. These jeans are really comfortable for me because I have a narrow waist and larger thighs - but they fit me perfectly without needing a belt. I really love the white jumper as well, so this made for a comfortable and nice looking outfit for me.

Also, we still don't have any snow! It's been a pretty pleasant, dry and sunny-ish winter for me so far.

  1. You look lovely, Olivia! It's definitely a bit Christmassy with the colour scheme. I actually want to get a pair of dark red trousers for myself. ^__^

    I mostly wear pyjamas, haha, but basically fluffy socks and comfortable, warm clothes are my go-to things! Usually with a scarf. I love bundling up for the winter.

  2. I love this outfit Olivia. I'm also going with something this shade of red for Christmas. Here it's summer so no scarf and boots for me, LOL. Instead I'll be wearing a dress I think. Also, thanks again for participating in my giveaway hop :)

  4. Ace those exams girl! I remember the days when I would be surrounded by books, notes, and snacks, studying like crazy. EPL is one of my many Julia Roberts movies, but I have yet to read it. Love the red & white!

  15. I've got a fab pair of wide-legged Indian palazzo pants that are just perfect and so comfortable. They were bought in Almeria, Spain and I need to get back there before I completely wear them out!

    1. I am glad you love them so much and find them so comfy! Ahaha, I know what you mean about needing more than one pair - otherwise they will be scruffy from being constantly worn time and time again pretty quick ;)

  29. Love the outfit. It is super Christmassy on Christmas, but totally not Christmassy outside of Christmas. Does that make sense? Anyway, I think it's perfect :)
