Christmas day: Outfit post

Hello all! I hope everyone had a merry Christmas. I think I'm just getting over all the food I consumed yesterday. I drove back to my parents house on Christmas Eve and am really happy to be home.

I just love the space and light in my parent’s house. It probably feels even better as this is the first time in a while I’ve been in a place with lots of windows during the day.  I missed you sunshine.








How cute are these little mince pies? They were the perfect size for a mid morning snack with a cup of tea!


Lunch is served!

What I wore:
Blouse: Dorothy Perkins
Necklace: Superdrug
Skirt: Vintage
Tights: Primark
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins


My Dorothy Perkins shirt has that ideal balance of festive and everyday-wear that means I can both wear it to work all year round and wear it for Christmas dinner. The beading can either be snowflakes or stars depending on your point of view. Plus the material is so soft – I’m so glad I own it.


This pleated skirt was picked up in my recent vintage kilo sale haul earlier this month (promise I’ll show the rest soon!). I found it near the bottom of a big bin I was rummaging in – note: definitely take the time to rummage in the tubs at a kilo sale, that’s where all the best stuff is! – and as soon as I picked it up I knew it was the perfect length for an everyday skirt.

Is it just me or are the skirts on the high street either too long or too short (Remember "Call me Grandma")? Since I’ve been losing weight and my current skirts are getting too big, I’ve been dreading having to find new ones. When I picked this one up, I thought “great length, bit small but I’ll probably fit into it in a few weeks”. And this week was the one where it fit (such a great feeling btw).


Finally, I rounded off my Christmas day outfit with some colourful tights and my black flats.  I was originally going to wear black tights but my old colourful self jumped out and grabbed these maroon ones. Definitely the right choice – I have really missed wearing colour!


Nail Varnish: Topshop - Crystal Clouds

I love this nail varnish shade – again,  it’s so festive but you can easily get away with wearing it all year round.

How was your Christmas?


  1. I love that shirt. It's very pretty. I miss being able to wear skirts. It's impossible to get good maternity ones. I'm on the look out for some new ones for after the birth but I completly agree. They're all too long or too short! X

    1. Thanks! I'm sure you do miss them - you haven't got too long to go now though right? Hope it's all going ok :) x
