Family Days and New Shoes

27 December 2015

Socks- Asos these are similar but not the same (you can't see them properly but trust me they're funky)

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I did but oh man did I eat too much, I wonder if I'll ever be hungry again. Thank god Joni jeans are stretchy, although on Christmas I was smart enough to wear leggings rather than jeans. I went on a run today though and I haven't for ages and for the first time since the holidays have begun really, I don't feel bloated and gross. Huzzah! Although later I have a family thing where I will probably end up feeling bloated but minor details. I'm out of leggings though and back to wearing jeans.

My outfit is pretty simple and pretty much my usual wear but with Christmas present additions. Back in the black Friday sales I got the best offer on these New Balances. I had been looking for khaki New Balances for ages and had found a really nice pair of Urban Outfitters and Asos that each cost over £80 and I always figured once I got a job I would save up (although finding a job was the major downfall of the plan but minor details) then I found these on Schuh. With the Black Friday sales these went down to £45 and with my Student discounts down to £40. So shoes that originally cot £85 I got for £40. If that is not one heck of a bargain, I don't know what is. I had to swap them for a smaller size ( I say I but really I got my Mum to do it for me) and the people there were impressed with how cheap I got them for too. I love them so much, I'm so happy I finally found a air of khaki NB that were also cheap. I got given them on Christmas though and although you can't see I paired them with the funkiest socks (finally got cool socks too, nice one Santa). Although now the shoes have gone down to £39.99 and with student dicosunt I could have got for £35 which is annoying but at the time it was one heck of a bargain.

Onemy trip to Brick Lane I got this jacket and I have been waiting to wear it ever since I got it, but had to wait for Christmas and then had to wait to have an outing that allowed me to wear it. I'm not sure if the family gathering is the best time to wear it, but I can't wait to wear it so I figured why not. I have been told it's not a windbreaker though which I knew but I don't really know what to refer to it as because it's a jacket but I like to label my jackets. For example I have my army jacket, my funky jacket but what can this be? Sports jacket just doesn't sound right.

Anyway, I hope you have all had a great Christmas and are having a good holiday! Also if any of you got any good concealers for Christmas please tell me, I am still on the search for one!
