A Bit Of Christmas Camo In Town
How is it already a third of the way through December? It’s crazy! And to think that Christmas is only 16 days away… That’s just over 2 weeks and I’m not even prepared in the slightest, ha ha. We have our decorations up, but that’s about as far as that goes! I’m doing a December life update in my next post, as requested to keep that a monthly feature, so I will talk more Christmas-y things then, but for this outfit post, this is my first one with a Christmas theme that I am sharing with you. I’m mixing it in amongst my Autumn photos that I have to publish, so it’s going to be an eclectic mix of different backgrounds until December is finished!
These photos were taken in Abbey Square in Bath which is the courtyard area outside the Bath Abbey and just outside the Roman Baths, so it’s right in the centre of town. They have taken to putting the giant Christmas tree here for the last two years, which I think is a great idea as at night time it looks magical, however since it is the most busiest part of town, it’s really hard to get photos without any people in… Usually I go for quieter locations or spend loads of extra minutes waiting for people to pass, so I can get a clear shot, but that wasn’t possible with these if I wanted the tree. However, I think having all of the people in the background, when it’s Christmas themed, really gives it an atmosphere and shows how lively that area of town is, and I quite like it. It’s different for me and it makes it not so much about the outfit at all, and more about the photos as a whole.
Now getting to the outfit, I didn’t want to focus too much on it as almost all of the items I’m wearing are older, but a lot are classics too. So I was wearing a Camo Parka Faux Fur Parka Coat that I got a couple of years ago, and I can’t remember the brand unfortunately, but I layered it over a warm long sleeve top and styled it with my PAIGE Margot Black Skinny Jeans. I’ve worn these PAIGE Margot Jeans so much recently and they seem to be the pair I gravitate towards for comfort because of the high rise and stretchy denim, so I definitely recommend them! I then added in my River Island Chenille Scarf, a new Topshop Brown Bobble Hat that I just purchased on the day (turns out it complemented the coat perfectly) and then finished it off with my Balenciaga Race Runners in Black. I did have some mittens, but I wasn’t wearing them for the photos. It was actually freezing on this day, which is why I’m quite pink, and this outfit wasn’t even warm enough, ha ha. Anyway, let me know what you think of these photos and if you’re enjoying my Christmas content or not? Lorna xx.
