Today is the last post I’m going to write before Christmas, and may be the last of 2013, (although it’s likely I’ll pop in at some point to reveal January Joy 2014!) So I thought I’d do a sort of outfit post in preparation for Christmas.
This year we’re spending it with my family and we like to dress up for the festivities. On Christmas eve we’ll go out for dinner and I will have worked most of the day, so I want something suitably sparkly but comfortable too. This loose knit is from Whistles but I picked one up in Oasis that was very similar and half the price. Team it with black skinnies, a statement sparkly necklace and some modern suede pointed courts and you’re all set for a cosy night in or out. (Thanks Jess for the outfit inspo!)
On Christmas day we go to family friends for drinks after opening presents, stopping at a couple of different houses before we head back to cook dinner. The day starts glamorously, although I like to wear something that allows for lots of nibbles and Christmas dinner so this loose embellished t-shirt style is perfect, (as well as being worn for my work Christmas party and coming out again for New Year.) I love a sparkly pair of earrings, and as it’s Christmas, my favourite glittery shoes have to come out, even if they’re so high they get kicked off as soon as we’re sat at the table! A bright red-orange lip keeps it modern and come 5 o’clock you’ll find me back in my PJ’s ready to watch the Strictly Christmas Special and a bit of Downton.
I hope your Christmas is full of magic and sparkle and you spend it with at least some of the people you love, if not all. I’d love to hear what you wear for Christmas and what your plans are if you get a moment to comment?
If I’m not back before, have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year readers!
