First off, happy Halloween everyone! I thought about doing a Halloween themed post but there's not much to show you since I've not really done anything to celebrate. I did carve a pumpkin today though, there's a pic on my Instagram if you want to see my
skills effort! Truth be told, at this time of year there's really only one celebration I really care about...Christmas! Yes, I'm afraid I am one of those people who gets excited about Christmas crazily early. The arrival of certain things, like christmas products in the shops and the Starbucks red cups, only serves to crank up my excitement and get me wondering how soon is too soon to put up my tree?? I do appreciate that it's still technically October right now, yes.
A quick after work shopping trip a couple of days ago turned into full blown Christmas excitement when I realised one of my favourite home stores has their Christmas decorations on sale. Mainly though, I thought I'd show you some quick iPhone snaps because I wore two new wardrobe favourites.
I'd been on a hunt for some real leather biker boots for quite some time but had no luck over here (at least not in my size) then I saw these on the Dorothy Perkins site and there was free shipping with 10% off. They fit perfectly and I'm impressed with the quality. I know they're going to be my winter favourite because they feel so sturdy.
The bag is another new find. It's from Zara and I liked it mainly because it's big and it's suede, which seemed a bit different. It's great as an everyday, go anywhere kind of bag. The rest of the outfit is fairly uninteresting; skinny jeans, chunky knit cardigan and a leopard scarf. The outfit is just so easy to throw on and feels so comfy and cosy.
Anyway, the shopping trip itself turned into a Christmas decoration shopping spree and the one thing I went to find fell by the wayside.

Now, I know some of you will be looking at this and thinking it's ridiculously early (and you'd be right to think that, it is) to be talking about this but I can't help but get excited. It's such a festive, fun time of year that everyone can enjoy, honestly, I can't wait!
So, with all that being said I want to know if anyone else is already excited for Christmas? And when do you reckon I can decorate? Usually I hold out until December but I'm thinking the first weekend after my birthday (21st November) might be as far as I make it this year! Is that too early for me to put up my tree?
