What I Wore Today




Top - New Look
Cardigan - Oasis
Shorts - Topshop
Belt - Topshop
Necklace - Marc Jacobs

I can't believe that Christmas is only 11 days away! I've not even put any decorations up yet. I really need to get cracking with my Christmas shopping so this is what I'm wearing today to find some nice pressies. Shopping on a Saturday scares me, theres just way too many people so I'm trying to get it done during the week. Just have to wait for Chloe to wake up from her nap and we'll be off.

I got this top from New Look & these shorts from Topshop over the summer but I never got the chance to wear them because they were both a bit tight on me. I've lost a bit of weight since then so I thought I would wear them out today. Yes I'm one of those people who wear tights and shorts no matter how freezing it is outside, it just looks better! My weight loss has pretty much come to a standstill at 10st 6lbs so I think I just need to make more time for the gym. I had to give up on the 30 day shred after day one because I couldn't fully extend my arms properly for about a week! I will do it though, I'm making a commitment. Luckily I don't really pig out over Christmas. This will be the first year where I am making Christmas dinner so we're having chicken instead of turkey, stuffing, veggies & about a million sausages wrapped in bacon, yum! Can't wait, I love cooking. I also hate Christmas pudding, yule log is where its at.

My mum is coming up from London tomorrow to spend some time with me & Chloe and give us our pressies. She and my sister are going to New York for Christmas so I am seriously jealous. In 2008 we went there for my birthday in August and again at Christmas so I suppose I can't complain too much. So I'll be spending the next few days with her. Luckily the hotel shes staying at has a free gym so I can work out and I can go to shops that don't allow prams in yay! I'm also hoping that me and Andy can go on a night out on Thursday. I'm not holding out much hope though. Last night he went to Headingley to watch the football with one of his friends and said he'd be back at 10.30. I was awake til 1.30 and he still wasn't back. When he arrived home this morning he told me how they drank loads of brandy shots, came into town & went to a club down the road from our flat. But instead of coming back home he went back with his friend, who had pulled, and had to wait for them to finish having sex to leave. So now hes decided he hates drinking and wants to be straight edge... I don't know, my boyfriend is rather strange.

  1. You look brilliant! You really have such a lovely figure caroline. Ive heard the 30 day shred is intense... I never knew it was THAT intense though! Hope you have a lovely time with your mum over the next few days. I really want to go to new york last year, I was 16 the first time I went, and being a moany teenager I didnt appreciate it at all! Kicking myself now xx

  2. I have serious NYC lust right now! Everyone is going or has been, I need to get over there!

    I would be terrified of the 30 day shred. At least you managed the one day shred. That's probably more than most.

    Christmas has been proper stealthy this year. I'm not really prepared, need to do some last minute present buying - eep! Hope you have a lovely time with your mum!

    Do some shops seriously not allow prams in? That's so mean! Our shop is tiny but we'd never stop anyone bringing one in.
    Love the outfit by the way, the striped top looks great on you!

  6. Get those decorations up, you'll feel so much more Christmassy :) I really hate the Christmas crowds too.
    I know how you feel about shorts, I really love wearing them all year round, and they look great with tights or socks.
    Sausages in bacon are just delicious and it's the only time we eat them here. Oh and I hate Christmas pudding too.
