There and back again: catchup & outfit post

3am in Florida

Sitting on the terrace, sipping a cold drink and tapping away on my laptop, I find myself far away from home again. As per tradition I spent Christmas Day at home with my family which was lovely and quiet. This was then followed by over 26 hours spent awake travelling to Florida the day after. 

Christmas lunch
Group selfie at the start of the journey...we had no idea what was to come! Safe to say, no one was up for an "after" selfie!

It was pretty hellish as far as journey's go - with Topher and my dad's boarding passes suddenly not working at the gate in London, then the car rental place in Florida overselling their cars so people who had pre-paid were left with nothing (do NOT use Thrifty car rental!) to finally topping off the long day with our hotel having oversold their rooms (don't use hotels involved with timeshare!). We finally got to bed at 5am local time (10am UK time). 

Topher at 10pm local time/3am UK time
But that my friends is all behind me now. I can smile safely in the knowledge that I am finally on holiday and the fun can begin! Since Topher and I have come with my family, we're doing a split holiday between relaxing and going to a couple of parks. I am so excited! The new extension of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a must and I am itching to catch a few (hundred) photos of the Christmas decorations in Magic Kingdom. Not to mention the outlet malls I'll be taking advantage of.

Anyway, I only got a couple of snaps of what I wore on Christmas Day but you get the gist. Black dress, maroon tights, statement necklace = sorted. I may have forgotten to bring shoes that weren't converse or sandals...

Dress & tights: Primark, Necklace: Reborn

 I'm not used to wearing drop waisted dresses as my waist is usually something I like to highlight. But I couldn't resist with this one and it's embroidery detail. Plus it's super comfy!

How was your Christmas?
