Style File – Christmas Market

Style File – Christmas Market

Once again I popped along to the Birmingham Christmas Market and with the beautiful bright lights of the christmas wheel behind me, what better place to take some outfit photos.

After a long time reluctance too avoid the 70’s bandwagon with feeling my hippy phases should stay as distant memory as all those gypsy skirts back in 2005, I finally gave in and broke the seal with the button down mini skirt from Topshop. I may not be adopting the full on suede and fringing look complete with cow boy boots quite yet, however it is a nice change from my usual black denim jeans. 

This ended up a very colourful look for me with the addition of this spotted wrap around top from American Apparel with this lovely colourful circle pattern. When I first think of a wrap top I can’t help but be transported to being a little girl running, rather ungracefully through my ballet class, but with them becoming ever more fashionable all grown up I get to wear them again.  American Apparel has always been brand I have loved for their simple and stylish basics however, spending 3 times my weekly food shop on a basic is rather unjustifiable for any student, especially when Primark is just around the corner, but with their 75% off black Friday sale, this top along with a pair of jeans very soon became all mine at a fraction of their normal prices.  

With wanting to avoid adding anymore colours or patterns to the look at the risk no longer recognising myself I simply paired it with this large black scarf and my patent black Doc Martens.

Spotlight On – Birmingham German Market

Spotlight On – Birmingham German Market

Happy Christmas Eve everybody! With it being rather bright and sunny outside for me at the moment sometimes it is hard to believe that the day for snow and cozying up by the fire is tomorrow. With this blog having been in the festive spirt for quite some time now with all my festive features it only seemed right to continue this up unto the big day. With a major perk of student life being that of the long holidays it’s been a great opportunity to busy myself with the blog.

What better way to get in the festive spirt than a visit to Birmingham’s Christmas Market. Many cities throughout the country have their own versions but as the holder of the largest in Europe outside of Germany covering the near enough the whole city centre, Birmingham’s is a lovely day out. Ever since the first time I visited it years ago its been a staple part of my festive season activities in the Knott household.

From your bratwurst’s to your baubles, these can all be found amongst the beautifully decorated stalls. When the sun had set and despite the rain and cold trying to dampen our spirits but the beautiful orange and red glow amongst the rides and stalls helped to make us feel warm and toasty.
