If there's ever going to be a time for sequins, it's definitely during the festive period. For my twenty-first, I whipped out this snazzy little number, but for the Stylight christmas do I've decided to step it up a notch with this playsuit's cut-out detail on the back. Although it goes beautifully with this tuxedo jacket that I chose after my friend's horrified reaction when I admitted to not owning a black blazer, I think more than a little jacket will be necessary to battle the german elements at this time of year. Heading out for just twenty minutes to take these and Carmen's photos resulted in some very frozen hands which could only be fixed with a whole tub of potato soup, my most extreme soup stunt to date. If you fancy winning yourself a little sparkly something, boohoo are running a competition on instagram with the prize of a £500 wardrobe just for hashtagging your christmas style with #dressmas. If I win, it's safe to say that I'll be heading straight to the coat section...

PS, I'm currently looking into buying a domain for my blog (about bloody time!), so if you have any host recommendations please send them my way!

With one hand you calm me, with one hand I'm steel.

Well, here you go, my first post hailing from Germany! Taken literally in front of where I work at Stylight HQ (seriously, everyone kept asking us when were going for lunch as they walked past to get their own), you might not be seeing Munich's most picturesque view, but it's the best lunchtime can offer! I keep trying to describe the city to my friends by comparing it to a British equivalent, but the closest I can get to is The City of London; it's affluent, with lots of business people and glass-fronted buildings, but there's the Altstadt (english: "old town") of archaic late Gothic buildings nestled right in the middle of it. I've hardly seen any of it other than the area immediately around where I work, but hopefully this weekend will involve me layering up and going exploring!

I've worked in an office before, so you would expect me to be better prepared for working in one again. You would be mistaken. I packed two leather skirts (yes, two) and a smock dress instead of anything vaguely acceptable, read: comfortable to sit at your desk in all day. Thankfully Closet got in touch just in time and speedily sent me out this Carven-esque dress of dreams. It would appear that I'm not completely over my collar phase, but I am 100% okay with it when dresses like this exist. Paired with a pair of borrowed shoes and my favourite lipstick, maybe it turns out that I can just about pull off workwear.

F+F leather t-shirt: £25. American Apparel truffle corduroy circle skirt: £15, via ebay. Topshop grey boyfriend blazer: £27. Charity shop fur scarf: 50p. Marks and Spencer leather bowler bag: £43. Charity shop Bally chelsea boots: £8. Rotary watch. Toujours Toi boat necklace. Charity shop belt: 20p.

Nothing like some photos taken just off Regent Street to make a girl feel homesick! Perhaps the burgundy obsession is getting a little out of hand, but why shouldn't I match my outfit with the backdrop? After all, nothing compliments an American Apparel circle skirt and oxblood bowler bag like a wall in the same colour. That's what I'm telling myself, anyway.

Thank you all so much for the well-wishes regarding my move to Munich! It's been a lot of fun so far, and so as long as it continues in the same way I'm sure I'll enjoy the whole of my stay. I'm planning to drag my camera to work this week to get my first german outfit photos too, so expect to get well-acquainted with the car park. I haven't spent that much time wandering the city yet, but a walk to the Altstadt with Kavita last week showed me how beautiful it is - now all I need to do is wrap up warm and see the rest of it!
