 Happy Second Christmas to Me!

Hope you’re having a wonderful festive break this weekend! In true ShinyThoughts Family style, I’m back from spending Christmas in France and am now at my parents about to celebrate Christmas Day part 2. Yep, we’re a greedy bunch and like to celebrate the festive season in pan-european ways! Just before we crack on with the turkey, here’s a warming outfit from my recent trip to Amsterdam with KLM. (Yep, I’ve been travelling around Europe a fair amount this year!)


 Camel, Orange, Yellow, Red

I stole my friend Dunya’s camel coat for these snaps by this strip of the canal just a short walk down from our awesome rooms in Hotel V – cheers matey! It complimented the warm tones in my vintage-based skirt and cashmere jumper outfit nicely, especially the beanie that I grabbed in the local H&M upon realising that the city was actually pretty nippy. She nabbed the coat back later on our way to dinner, looks like we all miss judged the Netherlands’ climate!
