Gather up the season into your favourite basket, red and green, berries and fir, soft leafy twigs and all the things that smell as fresh as a winters morning. Sit a while and twist what you have into a simple wreath to hang on your door. This is one of the ways I love to welcome the festive season ahead.
A couple of weeks ago I got together with my sister to make our Christmas wreath, eat chocolate and listen to Christmas music – it has become a lovely little tradition over the last few years and one I look forward to with great joy. Do you like to make your own Christmas wreath?
I also wanted to share my new dress with you, it is the most perfect shade of pink, gorgeously floaty and I love it so. Etsy, an online marketplace, asked if I would like to join them with their #DifferenceMakesUs campaign, celebrating our own individual style. I jumped at the chance and went straight to one of my favourite Etsy sellers, Son De Flor, to purchase this dress that I have lusted after for a long long time.
I love this smock dress, handmade from beautiful linen with its loose fit and timeless style. And, I also love what it represents too:
“Son de Flor is about slowing down. Coming back home. Sharing laughs around the dining table. It’s about feeling comfortable in our own skin. About not needing to be better nor faster. Son de Flor is about You, not fashion, not even style. It’s about a modest dress outstanding in the crowd with no need for explanation. No chase of the seasons, no new nor old trends. Time-less. Feminine. Charming. Subtle.” Son De Flor.
