I’ve been excited to write this post for a while now, I just haven’t had the time.
First time I took these pictures we were at the Christmas Market in Aachen, and then I put the outfit on again a week later to take some more pictures. We had to rush the ones at the market as we were with friends and I’m still a little shy about this blogging stuff. I’m awkward at the best of time taking outfit pictures, let alone with 3 other friends. The second set we had little time as it gets dark so early at the moment.
This is where the point of this post begins. Maybe it comes across on here, possibly not yet, but I’m not the most sociable person. I’m not shy, I just dislike social scenes and generally being around lots of people. The more people the less social I get. Anyhow, for our trip to the market it was Kris and I, plus three friends. Don’t get me wrong I like two out of three of them and we do hang out from time to time. It’s just certain aspects of my life I prefer to do alone or with Kris. Travelling and going on mini adventures is one of those aspects.
When I go somewhere new I want to walk around, take in the scenery and snap a few pictures here and there. Most of all I want to do this at my own speed, go my own way and not worry if the other people are having a good time. Frankly, I don’t care – as long as I am having a good time; and Kris too. Going somewhere or doing something with your best friend (Kris is first my best friend and then my boyfriend) is different. We are in tune with each other, we can read each others signals and, something which I think is key to a relationship is, we are willing to compromise for each other. Kris says yes to walking for miles and miles and I say yes to frequent food and drink stops – compromise. When it is just the two of us we can sit in silence on the train, we don’t have to fill every second with talking and we go home when we are too cold and our feet hurt.
From what we saw of the Christmas market it was festive and had lots of stalls to check out. It was pretty cold and a little wet and that’s hard when you are a group. Everyone wants everyone to be happy and nobody wants to say it sucks. The day started off good and decline to a steady sucking by the time we got the train home. It would have been nice to have gone back before the end of the holidays but we didn’t get a chance – maybe next year. Just the two of us.
Well, I guess I’m just unsociable and group outings aren’t for me. Yet, with Kris, I would go anywhere with him and his company, he’s my partner in crime and no-one can compete with that. Ahh, mush.
Isn’t this skirt from Moddolly amazing! It fits pretty snug with the elasticated waistband and I couldn’t resist pairing it with this patterned top. Again, this cardigan from Topshop, is my favourite. It’s a great colour, it’s warm and snug and, well, it’s just amazing. It goes so nicely with the top (I pretty much always wear this combination) and it matches some of the colours on the skirt too. I’m sure I am wearing too different pairs of shoes – my new Pull and Bear loafers and my go to brogues.
