Just a little update today! Holly & I are currently in England staying with our family. We decided to get here a little before Christmas so we could go shopping in London and catch up with our friends here. We have so so many cousins, so trying to see everyone at Christmas time is always a challenge!
We went to London yesterday and went to our usual spots like Covent Garden, Oxford Street and Camden, which are all truly beautiful this time of the year. Nights are lit up by all the incredible lights and Christmas music echoes through every street, it's such a beautiful atmosphere. We also went to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park which is amazing! I would definitely recommend it if you can go, I can't wait to share all the pictures we took there!
I hope you are all enjoying Christmas, have a lovely week-end! Summer xx

We're FINALLY on Christmas break, and I couldn't be happier! I can finally start enjoying Christmas! I definitely need a break from university, although we didn't have too many exams this semester, the stress & worry stills builds up and prevents you from enjoying the festivities. Luckily we have about a month break for Christmas which is incredible, and hopefully we will be spending some time in the UK with our family! But for now, we can just go back home in the countryside and sleep for a few days, (and recover from the mid-season finale of Arrow. Oh.)
I wore this outfit yesterday! Lately I've just been wearing my longline check print coat to university, but if I'm just popping out for a short while, I'll wear my lovely mango biker jacket. It isn't the warmest jacket in the world, but I was wearing a long sleeve top under the shirt & tights under my skinny jeans. Surprisingly it wasn't uncomfortable & I felt pretty snug, but in pictures I'm not quite sure if it looks pretty weird?? I love this paisley print shirt from Zara, it's beautiful material and such good quality!
Needless to say I can't wait to go shopping in London for a new winter coat! Have a lovely week-end! Summer xxx

Lately I've been struggling to come up with cool blog post titles, so I've decided to just throw in random references to shows/books I've been watching/reading. Juuuuust to make things more interesting :D
I have no idea how we ended up having any shots for this post, we were outside for literally no more than 5 minutes because IT WAS SO COLD.
Also looking back I kinda have the whole homeless look going on here..? I bought this plaid flannel shirt in Zara when we were in Chicago, mostly because it reminded me of my favorite fictional character, but also because it's super soft and warm, I needed some new long-sleeved shirts for the winter so I'm super happy with this one! With the weather being so cold I decided to layer up with my long cardigan from h&m. They also look a bit crinkled. I probably should have ironed everything first but life is just too short and I was just too damn cold. (we haven't left the flat today. I'm currently sitting in the dark in my onesie with a quilt cover and a scarf around me, listening to the Star Trek movie soundtrack.)
Summer dug out this old monochrome skirt from Topshop, and played with textures for her outfit, she paired it with the beloved green peccary jacket from Mango, & the lovely warm scarf from Zara.
Summer & I are really grateful for every single comment from you guys, please remember to leave a link to your blog so we can look at it!!
Hope you all have a lovely week-end!!

It is absolutely freezing here in France. We have barely any lessons at uni this week, so I've spent the past two days inside, in my zebra onesie, away from the glacial cold. I don't mind when it's crisp or a little nippy outside, but when it's like this it's so difficult trying to take pictures. Not only do have a limited time because of the natural light fading, it's ardous work when your fingers go numb and the air makes your chest ache. Which is why today, after 2 minutes outside, we decided to take them inside and just listen to music at the same time!
Christmas is approaching very quickly, and it seriously couldn't come soon enough! All the pictures of mince pies and roast dinners on ig are almost too much for me to handle. I also can't wait to just chill at home, having a Harry Potter marathon and eating chocolate. Holly & I are considering going to England a little earlier so we can catch up with family & friends (and shopping of course!). As much as I love it here in France, nothing can beat the Christmas spirit in London, there's truly nothing like it! Today I wore this lovely wood green jumper with my all time favourite skinny jeans. I think this is the perfect casual look, simple and effortless. Add some heeled ankle boots if you're going out to add a little "more" to your look. Holly is wearing this gorgeous paisley print shirt. I love the print & color palette so much, it's the perfect bohemian touch to a look.
Hope you are all having a great week so far!! Summer xxx

Okay guys. It's the 1st of December. Which means it's time to start panicking. Time to start buying presents and finding places to hide them. Time to make preparations for the festive week. Time to mentally & physically prepare yourself for the huge amount of food you'll be consuming in 25 days. But come on, it's really time to dig out your embarrassing Christmas jumpers. Let's be honest, Christmas wouldn't be the same without them, right?!
Summer & I received this jumper from Funky Christmas Jumpers, it's our first ever blogger mail, so we were super super excited about it! It's actually a really great quality jumper, & it's soft and really warm, & honestly it does put me in a festive mood, even though I laugh at myself every time I wear it ^^ If you guys are looking for a funny present for someone this Christmas they have loads more designs on their website :)
Hope you're all having a great week, and that you all recover from the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead. (Gutted. Ugh.)
