cranberry fizz

Photobucket

Photobucket

These photos were taken in Mataró, a city about an hour up the coast from Barcelona by train. I was somewhat overdressed for the day's activities... starting work on the horrible prospect of three essays that are due in January. Honestly, it's a special form of torture to give people work to do over Christmas...

I bought this skirt in my favourite charity shop right before I left England (read: the only decent one I've found. Anyone have any London charity shop recommendations)? You can't really tell in the photos, but it's woven through with golden thread, which I thought made it properly festive for the Christmas season!

The whole outfit is smashing, but I especially love that sweater with the pin as a pop of color. It looks so cozy - and since I'm frozen right now, cozy is a VERY good thing! ;-)

You look gorgeous in this outfit.

Feliz Año, dear!

How I love this festive outfit! You do match your surroundings quite nicely. I especially love your fuzzy sweater... it's so nineties, and therefore so now. :) This is almost reminiscent of something Cher would have worn in Clueless, which I find extremely awesome! A little more polished, though... You actually remind me of Emma from Glee. ^_^

CAITLIN said...

this is so perfect! i love the floral tights with the brogues... and everything else!

also, i could totally go for a cranberry fizz right about now. just my style :)

Ellinor Forje said...

I love the vintage feeling of your outfit. The background fits perfectly too. Thanks for sharing the photos and drop by me too when you have time.

Cheers.

Ashley said...

this is one of my favorite outfits that you've ever worn. There's something about deep red that always gets me. I'm wearing it on my nails right now :)

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

I must say, cranberry + cream is a perfect combination for you! Is that one of those nifty little pins that doubles as a hair clip? Love those!

Michal said...

This may be my favorite outfit you've ever posted! You look so pretty. The tights are the perfect touch & that skirt is a great find.

Raquel said...

You look so pretty in shades of cream and red, I really think it suits you. And the flower pinned in the sweater is the perfect touch.
I don't know any charity shops in London, but I am sure we can find some :)

Bonnie said...

You look so feminine and innocent. I love this!
