With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I would put together a selection of outfits that I have put together for the holiday season- from parties to relaxing on the sofa! I had such fun doing this – it felt almost as good as going shopping and buying the real things but had none of the shopping guilt after I have spent too much money that I should have done something more sensible with. Here are the outfits I love….
The office Christmas party
If you have been following me for while, you will recognize this dress from French Connection. It is my major wardrobe-lust at the moment but my Christmas party just isn’t dressy enough to require something this glamorous. Paired with these lace stilettos, smoky eyes and a red lipstick, this is my ideal party or winter wedding look.
Christmas cocktails with the girls
A sparkly top, berry lipstick and high heels teamed with a classic pair of black jeans is my go to outfit, moving from office to bar easily!
For my family, Christmas Eve is usually spent preparing for Christmas day – peeling vegetables, last-minute present wrapping and setting the table followed by a Chinese takeaway, homemade cocktails and a good Christmas movie. All you need is a cosy Christmas jumper and a comfy pair of jeans.
My family like to dress up on Christmas Day, nothing too fancy but for us it is a special occasion so we like to wear something that makes us feel special. An embellished jumper and glittery tights paired with a patterned skirt keeps it casual but with just enough Christmas sparkle!
This outfit is perfect for the long, winter walks on Boxing Day before lounging about playing board games and eating leftovers. A much-needed wind down post-Christmas!
