excuse me, you look very, very nice, ma'am!

Leather jacket - Auntie's old
Dress - Mama's old
Cardi - Primark
Over-knee socks & Leggings - KappAhl
Boots & Scarf - 2nd hand
Bag - Marimekko
Mittens - From Tallinn/Stolen off mama

Ooh, I can't believe it's already December! These last few months have gone so fast. Today, I almost felt festive in my red cardi, boots and mittens. And the scarf's pattern has some red in it as well. Although, I can't say I'm that excited for Christmas yet.. Yes, I've started listening to Christmas songs and opening my advent calendar, but there's still something missing. 20 days to get into the proper Christmas spirit!

P.S. While I was walking back home today, this man walking toward me stopped and let his jaw drop a wee bit. He then looked at me and said "Excuse me, you look very, very nice ma'am!" I think I said 'thank you' but I just found the whole situation far too hilarious. I never know how to take a compliment (or just a shout or wolf whistle) from a stranger on the streets. And I certainly am not used to people calling me 'ma'am'!
