(Target hat & shoes, Caroline Mitchell dress, Valleygirl sweater, Forever New belt)

This week has been busy, but I’ve loved it. I started my first proper shift at work on Monday and I am pleased to say that it went wonderfully. I love being treated like an adult, making friends with new people, earning my own income and interacting with customers! I just feel so happy about it all! I feel like my life is going somewhere now and I can start making goals for when I leave school! 

I was quite pleased with how these photos turned out… the afternoon sun was simply too hard to resist so I thought it would be perfect for taking outfit pictures. I was quite warm and snug inside this sweater and really liked how the colour went with the gorgeous coral of the dress.
Winter is my favourite season by far; nothing pleases my senses more than curling up in a blanket with a hot tea and a good book (at the moment I’m reading The Road to Yesterday by L.M Montgomery). I hope you are all doing well, tomorrow I'm going to yet another tennis lesson (yippee!) followed by the completion of a few bits and bobs for school. ♥

You look so beautiful! I adore this outfit, and winter is definitely my first equal favourite season too, along with summer. I love skiing and cosy jerseys and warm hot chocolate. I hope you are having a lovely winter.

This is such a lovely romantic look :) It reminds me of Jane Austen movies/period dramas in general, especially with the background.
