The Winter Project | Christmas Accessories

I have to admit I was a bit stumped when I read that Christmas Accessories were the subject of this weeks Winter Project. I didn't think I really had any Christmas accessories. But with a little thought I realised that I do, I have my Christmas tshirt! I'm not one for Christmas jumpers, they are too stuffy for me and I just can't pull them off, I get too hot in anything with sleeves below my elbows anyway. So when I saw this Tshirt from River Island last year I knew I had to have it.


With the shoe theme it felt like it was made for me! I wish I could make a Christmas tree out of shoes! how amazing would that look?! *makes note to self to make one when I am a millionaire!*
I wore this top last year on Christmas day with some leggings and boots and I'll be sure to get it out a lot more in the lead up to Christmas this year. I still event put my decorations up, it seems too early for me and I was always told it should be done 12 days before Christmas. Not long now though! Once they are up I will properly get in the Christmas spirit!

Another item of clothing with a Christmas theme are my 
Candy cane socks. These are more of a novelty and have been worn to a a couple of Christmas themed parties but I still think they're cute.

We're going to put up our decorations and write our cards this weekend. I make sure I buy a new decoration every year to add to it. I try to make sure it means something and relates to something that happened that year. Last year was a bauble with Masons name on as it was the year he was born and his first Christmas. For this year I bought this cute little tree decoration from M&S. We moved into our new place this summer so the front door with the year on it was very fitting. 

I love that my tree tells a story! Even if it is pretty mis-matched!

It won't be long before I'll wrap up all the presents while watching Muppets Christmas Carol! Another Christmas tradition of mine! ooooo I love Christmas!

I'm so excited about it this year!

  4. I love trees that tell a story too. Ours is full is ornaments that commemorate special occasions and we add a New Home ornament every time we move. It takes ages to decorate our tree since I keep stopping and thinking about all the special occasions. Your M&S 2013 ornament is beautiful.
