The day we shot these photos was the coldest day of the year so far. I was bloody freezing! Last minute, we decided to head in to central to top up on some festive vibes at Covent Garden but didn't head in until the sun was just starting to set - adding to the dropping temperature! I still haven't dug out the hat and gloves yet, so it's probably my own fault that my finger tips felt numb until the next day. Anyway, knowing we were going to go see some Christmas sights I decided to wear my favourite winter colour, burgundy! Inspired by the ASOS trend of Colour Control, I focused on burgundy as my main colour but of course couldn't help but add in some touches of grey. And no Christmas look is complete with out a little bit of check, so added this in as an in between layer to keep me just a teeny bit warmer!
Once we got to Covent Garden, it was heaving with Christmas shoppers and tourists and was actually a bit overwhelmingly busy! Also SantaCon was in full swing in the area, meaning that there were even more people around than usual - it was so funny seeing all the people dressed as Santa though, and added to the Christmas-y feeling! I didn't really get a chance to take any proper photos when we were there, but of course a few quick ones made it to my instagram! I haven't been feeling as festive as early this year, but this evening definitely helped! Plus my day off today is going to involve a bit of Christmas shopping followed by some classic Christmas films, so will soon be in crazy Christmas overdrive and I can't wait!
