Oh Gnome she didn't!

I don't quite know why it's taken me so long to post an entry on one of my favourite jumpers? As soon as the chilly months arrive it's time for me to bring out 
my trusty gnome jumper and take him on an outing. 
As lots of you know Gnomes are yet another Rebecca Tan obsession...
This love of Gnomes probably stems from my family owning an giant indoor Gnome called Fred. Yes, you heard me, a giant indoor gnome called Fred! 
He was one of the family forever until he got smashed and my mum 
didn't have to heart to replace him.  I like to think Fred still watches over us haha
Sunday was a lovely day off, I went along with Jon and his parents to the Christmas market in Rochester. It was the most perfect afternoon, the weather was frosty, the smell of chips and mulled wine was in the air and they even had a snow machine!
That was the first day of the year for me it really did feel like Christmas! The people were singing, the music was playing and they even had my favourite hot chocolate with Baileys...mmmmm.....
I fell in love with my gnome Jumper last year.  It's from Cath Kidston and at the time cost an awful lot so I couldn't afford it...I'd hoped Jon would get him for me for Christmas only for it to be sold out everywhere already in November. Devastated, I vowed on Fred's grave I would find him one day and low and behold I did on Ebay on boxing day!!
Blimey, sometimes when I type my blog posts I really think to myself....
People must think I'm berserk....lobsters, gnomes, mermaids...what next? 
Well, as lots of you may have gathered, I am rather open-minded in terms of fashion 
and love to wear things that make me smile.
 I do not dress for anyone else but myself. 
How about you? Who do you dress for?

Gnome sweet Gnome
