Sparkle All The Way

Strolling out to collect my Christmas wreath seems to have become a bit of a tradition.

I know that Christmas is really all about trees, and I love that!

But lugging a Christmas tree up the endless flights of stairs to my apartment is not an idea I relish.

Especially in these shoes!

Camel coat jeans and heels

But a Christmas wreath?

A perfect, festive, pine scented, beautiful creation to spruce the place up?

Well, that sounds right up our street, doesn’t it Custard?

Feeling festive in Notting Hill

Festive Red Scarf and Red Prada

So every year, we wind our way through Notting Hill’s streets, past the giant white houses, all adorned with their own wreaths and the occasional tree glistening in the windows, all the way to Wild at Heart.

Where together we choose our wreath!

Custard spied the style we wanted and we waited as they artfully created one and brought it to life.

Much to Custard’s delight, who hates waiting for anything.

Especially breakfast.

Which he’d already had, but likes to forget incase I do too, and feed him again.

Red Berries and Pine Cone Christmas Wreath

I picked up my beauty, popped around the corner for an Ottolenghi hot chocolate (’tis the season).

Finally set for Christmas!

Festive Hot Chocolate in Notting Hill

Sparkling in my Pandora pieces.

I adore the delicate designs. They’re all so different, but go together so exquisitely.

Red Nails and Hot Chocolate

Silver Rings and Red Nails

I couldn’t be prouder to be working with a brand I’ve admired since I was little.

All of the compliments that come with wearing the jewels don’t hurt, either!

Silver Rose Ring and Festive Red Nails

Piled up with Christmas cheer, we waltzed home to hang our new wreath.

Christmas Shopping in Notting Hill

No sooner had we stepped through the door, than the place was filled with the smell of pines.

I tore open a clementine, lit the candles, popped a bit of Nat King Cole on and we danced in the kitchen.

Wallowing in our own little winter wonderland!

Have you seen these?

  • Love your shoes, and what a cute sweater! I actually don’t think that my family and I has ever bought a Christmas wreath before! Sure, the kids (including me) may have made a few during arts and crafts, but we’ve never had a proper wreath; just a tree! Maybe next year I’ll get a wreath for my dorm door 🙂 Not this year though, because I’ll be off for winter break soon, which I’m incredibly excited about! Oh, and loving that photo with the eucalyptus! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      You must be SO excited Audrey! There’s nothing better than going home for Christmas.
      I don’t go until next week and I already can’t wait! xx

  • i love how all the bloggers are bringing my Christmas mood to the next level. Thanks Rosie!

  • Custard certainly picked out a beautiful wreath ;-). The Pandora rings are very stylish, and you can’t beat Nat King Cole at Christmas time

  • Do you know, I’ve never actually had a Christmas Wreath! I was going to attend a wreath making class in Jersey, but was too busy to make it unfortunately! Maybe I’ll buy my first one this year, then have a go at making one next year! 🙂 I love the one you’ve chosen, really colourful! x Jersey Girl x http://www.jerseygirl.co

  • Gorgeous outfit as always Rosie! I love the print of this scarf and the detailing on your Pandora rings. This wreath is so so pretty, we tend to not put one on our door anymore because a few years ago someone stole our pumpkin so we assume the same will happen with a wreath which is such a shame 🙁 x

    Love the outfit! And that beautiful wreath! On those gorgeous shoes: how does one make heels like that actually walkable? My feet would be screaming on the first block! Is it practice? Or do you have a secret that you don’t mind sharing. Now, off to buy my own Christmas wreath!

  • Love, love the shoes! They are really beautiful with jeans. I love your blog. It reminds me of when I lived in London. I miss it so much! Truly the best time of my life! So much to do. I always loved all the flower stalls and stores. The selection, the color, and sometimes the smell all at an affordable price. Your photos are beautiful!

  • Nat King Cole makes the best Christmas music! He is definitely my favorite classic-y Christmas sound, even more so than Frank Sinatra or Bing Crosby.

  • Those shoes are stunning. I can’t wait to have a place of our own where we can hang a wreath on the door. I’ve found the perfect place, but we shall see if we can afford it.

    Love strolling past Wild at Heart and looking at all the flowers – so beautiful.
