Christmas Market & Tunic

I had to visit Bristol again this week, this time to attend a work training event. I did get an opportunity however for a quick visit to a German Christmas Market which has recently set up in the Broadmead Shopping Centre.

There was an enormous Christmas tree with an illuminated star above a wooden structure which served alcohol and other drinks.

There were also a lot of little wooden cabins where you could buy a wide selection of German foods, sweets and wooden Christmas decorations. German people were serving the customers which added to the atmosphere. We had lunch provided so I didn't sample any of the hot foods but I did buy some small cakes which we enjoyed at home during the evening.
The market is not on the same scale as one I once visited at Cologne but it certainly adds a lot of interest and variety for the Christmas shoppers in Bristol.
My latest charity shop purchase has been this turquoise green tunic. It has a white motif on the front. Turquoise has always been one of my favourite colours so I soon decided to buy it when I discovered it was my size. It was only £2.00. I was looking for more tunics or long shirts as I have just started to wear trousers again and I always try to keep my rear covered when in public in the interest of modesty.
In case you all wondered I quickly went in and put on a jumper after Hannah took this picture as it was not that warm outside.
Oh and please don't look at the weeds in my patio!


  1. Love the colour of that tunic, what a nice piece with your pants! :)

    The Christmas market looks lovely too, we don't have anything like that here. We have markets through the year, but no special Christmas ones :(

  3. Great tunic!!

  4. The Christmas market sounds fun! I too, prefer to have something longer to cover up when I am wearing trousers- I don't like seeing the top of trousers as you say. One time, I wore some tighter trousers and one of the cleaners commented that I had put on weight (but apparently in a good way), which made me conscious that I had more visible shape in these trousers which I didn't like so much!
    And thank you for the vote!x

  5. How fun! The market seems like a cool place to visit!


  6. Turquoise is such a beautiful colour and what a bargain at £2!
