How is your Christmas shopping going? Bit of a military operation isn’t it?! This weekend I went to Winchester with my family to visit the Christmas market which is near the Cathedral. I wore this little dress from H&M, which I’ve had my eye on for a few weeks now! I love the sleeve length, if that’s not too odd to say!
I wore the dress with a beautiful crochet collar sent to me by Annah, who has a shop etsy (which you can visit here) I love it gives the dress a little bit of personality! My brogue chelsea boots are a bargain from eBay (originally Office)
How gorgeous is this Christmassy door?
My younger sister, wearing New Look jeans, a vintage shirt and scarf and a cute navy bowler she picked up from one of the vintage stalls that morning.
The market was split into two halves, the first being vintage and craft and the second was more Christmas themed, with homemade decorations and crafts. Chloe and I loved snooping at the vintage stalls (naturally!)
Candy floss… I resisted the sugary-teeth-rotting-gorgeousness!
Chloe chomping down a Christmas pasty!
Winchester was a lovely city, with such gorgeous old buildings and quirky features like this tea pot…
And this swashbuckling boot!
Christmassy balloons anyone? (so many of these were smacked in my face during the day by children running past!)
The Cathedral looking rather majestic in the cold wintery afternoon sunshine…
My parents loved these reindeer! They’re very impressive, I wouldn’t know where to start in making one!
Personally I had a bit of thing for these penguins! I love how grumpy they look!
It was utterly freezing and very busy, but there so much to explore and eat and buy that we all had a wonderful afternoon! I also enjoyed the opportunity to work on learning the manual settings on my camera.. I think I’m getting there! More soon, don’t forget to enter the Splendid Suitcase competition if you haven’t already!
