Dear December Third,
You give us thirty-one days of red, gold and green. We see these colours sewn into even the most intricate details of your month. I enjoy other takes on Christmas colours; Christmas trees with silver and purple and, well, whatever the Christmas Tree Elf fancies. My brother and I decorate our tree, December. We’ve never strayed far, if at all, from your chosen colour scheme. You picked these colours once upon a time and I’m not willing to give up on them. Red, gold and green. The colours are almost a tradition for my brother and me. I think our tree would look wrong without them taking centre stage in our living room, standing proudly as lights dance around them.
It’s the third day of your month and I’ve already sported your merchandise twice, December. Yes, I’m talking about my trusty green trousers. I’ve always loved clothes. I’m not really a fan of shopping unless it’s part of a big day out but I love buying clothes, December. This purchase is thanks to an online browse- my favourite form of shopping. And I, like you, love green. I thought I’d tell you about these trousers today, December. They are maybe my favourite item of clothing I’ve ever owned- so much so that I intend to buy a couple more pairs of these in different colours. Sadly, though, they don’t do them in red or gold.
I adore these trousers like a child adores their favourite teddy bear. In fact, like I adore the teddy bear my brother bought me for my fifth birthday- Snowie, his name is. I reach for these trousers as often as possible; they’re flattering, comfy, look good with so many of my clothes and, most importantly, they’re green! Christmas’s favourite colour. What more could you or I want in an item of clothing?
ASOS provided me with my trousers that are in your favourite colour. The trousers that have been making me feel oh-so-festive over the last couple of days. They are true to size and will look Christmassy all throughout the twelfth month. These trousers can be made casual (like in the photos above) or even made fancy. For the former, I wear a t-shirt or a jumper tucked into them, with a denim shirt and a jacket. I even wore them to my internship; a shirt, blazer and brogues do the job nicely. December, you’ll no doubt see me step out into your version of a nighttime song in these; dressed with my sparkly bronze top (it sounds a bit mismatched and, to be honest, December, it is) and my favourite open-toed heeled platforms.
Before I type my name as a brief goodbye, December, I’ll let you know what I’m wearing with my favourite trousers here (well, similar items to what I’m wearing!):
Bomber jacket – Topshop
Stripy tee – Topshop
Grey trainers – New Look
December third, I’m excited for you. It’s the first Sunday of your month and I’ve got my green trousers on in your name. As I head out into your day, I’m intrigued to see what the month will bring. One thing for sure is that I’ll be finishing your day with a warm chocolate. I’ll write tomorrow, December.
P.S. Just to add a bit of context: In December, over on my old blog, I “wrote letters” to December every day until Christmas Day.
