eve eve and christmas lights

Dress - Self-made
Coat - Still Young Vintage
Wellies - Melissa

I did not wear red on Christmas, but I did wear this dress on Christmas Eve's Eve. It's just part of Christmas; I wore it last year and the year before. And I'll probably wear it next Christmas, too! What you've not seen me wear before is another thing.. I would never have thought I'd buy myself a coat like this for several reasons. 1. It's green, and I don't really like green. 2. It's an army coat! 3. It's not really my style. And so forth. But after I finished watching "Freaks and Geeks" (which is the best TV show, by the way), I just wanted to be Lindsay, bought the coat and love it. Anyway, I wore this when I went to see the second part of "The Hobbit" (which, by the way, is too good).

I'm leaving for my Germany&Austria trip tomorrow, and will be back next year, hehe! I've got some 'going back in time' -posts still in my drafts and will try to get them scheduled, so it probably won't be completely quiet here on the blog.

P.S. I also recently joined Instagram and if you fancy seeing strange pictures of my life, you're more than welcome to follow! Or at least leave a link so I can follow you! I'm @elsummerviolet there (,as well as on Twitter) :-)
