Reindeer Lovin’

Considering just how much I love Christmas, I’m a little surprised that I haven’t written more Christmas posts this last month, but I’ll admit I’ve been really looking forward to this one: my Christmas outfit!

I’ve basically lived in this outfit through December, but I’m still obsessed with it. Would you believe I bought this jumper back in July?! Well I did. I found it in the Missguided sale, I think I paid £2.50 for it, and its been waiting patiently in my wardrobe for Christmas to come around. I love it! Its super soft and despite being a crop top, surprisingly warm; I like to think of it as my non-ugly Christmas jumper!

The skirt is also an old favourite from Missguided, I fell in love with the cute little cloud print, and to Christmas the outfit up, my favourite plaid shirt from h&m.

What will you be wearing for Christmas?

What I’m wearing – Heroes

I don’t know what’s going on with my face here, I look super bored!

Well all loved the San Fransokyo locals when they appeared on our screens at the start of the year, and this Redbubble fan-art makes such a great skirt!

I’ll be wearing this to Epcot, when we’ll be dining at Teppan Edo – the same day we’ll be running the WDW 5K dressed as Honey and Baymax!

Winter Run Wear

Its the season of big coats, woolly hats and hands stuffed into pockets because you forgot your gloves yet again, and any excuse to stay home in the warmth is welcomed with open arms, unless you’re a runner..

We’re a strange breed, and a year or two ago I would look out on those braving the low temperatures to get in a training run and think ‘is it really worth it?’, but now I’m part of this world I welcome a brisk winter run because I know how to dress for the occasion.

My first winter essential is my fleece, which I save for the coldest weather; its great for keeping away the chill while you’re out, but once you get back home you’re gonna want to whip it off pretty quick before you start to cook!

Next staple of mine is a bunch of lightweight long sleeved tops, like this once from Asics. On cool days, you might worry that they’re not gonna keep you warm, but once you get going you’ll warm up nicely, but also avoid overheating. Something I love about running in colder weather is that its cool enough to run with my hair down, so chunky headbands that keep the cool off my ears and the hair out of my face are pretty great!

I love my bodywarmer in the winter months – its super lightweight and not at all bulky, but at the same time makes all the difference out in the cold. I would also recommend a lightweight infinity scarf; even if you don’t want to run wearing it, it’ll help keep you warm once you start your cool-down.

Bring on the thermals! Forget the idea that they’re thick or too hot, and find yourself a nice light one because you’ll be amazed how much warmer they’ll make you! Sometimes I also like to wear a hat – you lose a lot of body heat from your head, so it helps prevent you cooling down too much, and the same principle applies to gloves!

Finally, the dreaded waterproof jacket! I say dreaded because who likes running in the rain, right? Well, like it or not, a lot of runners still do it, so the waterproof is fairly essential. I found shopping for mine pretty tricky; a lot of jackets claim ‘splashproof’ or ‘water resistant’, rather than waterproof, so you have to take a risk on whether you’ll be fully protected from the weather, but generally I would recommend avoiding cheaper/high street brands and go to a proper sports brand!

Once you’re fully equipped for the cold, there’s nothing to stop you from keeping up your training through the winter months. You never know, you might enjoy it!

What I’m wearing – Tale As Old As Time

I love this dress – its from the original Black Milk Disney collection – but as its sleeveless, I was a little concerned about how to style it for colder seasons, until I stumbled upon the item of wearing it over a scoop neck crop-tee – also great for if you like to keep your shoulders/arms covered!

I’ll be wearing this to Hollywood Studios, home of Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage!

Dress from ASOS

Cardigan from H&M

Scarf from Redbubble

Boots from Missguided

We all know how much I love Tangled, right?! I adore this scarf, its so light and soft; its the whole inspiration for this outfit!

I’ll be wearing this on our last day in the Magic Kingdom, and on the journey to California.

What I’m wearing – Pooh and Friends

Can you tell the weather wasn’t exactly on my side for this shoot, ha! Sun in my eyes, wind in my hair..

Another of my favourite pieces from the new Black Milk Disney 2.0 collection are these adorable shorties, which were the inspiration for this outfit. I also adore my Pooh ear hair clips, which I bought in Tokyo Disneyland in July!

I’ll hopefully be wearing this outfit on the day we attempt the Four Park Challenge – so I can meet Pooh and friends in both the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, and maybe even the Animal Kingdom; they’re very busy!

What I’m wearing – Steamboat Willie

This outfit is essentially a compilation of a few of my favourite things: my favourite item from the new Black Milk Disney collection – the zoetrope skater skirt – and my favourite Mickey ears, which I bought in Disney World last August. The skirt depicts scenes from Steamboat Willie, which is particularly special because it was officially released on November 18th, marking Mickey Mouse’s birthday, but also my Dad’s!

This outfit is what I’ll be wearing to Hollywood Studios, especially to see Fantasmic!
