Time to shine – Christmas countdown

Ok, so it’s still a little early for a Christmas post, however, my little girl has asked me to watch the Polar Express and Miracle on 34th Street over the last few days; this, along with writing her letter to Santa and booking our tickets to the Christmas Land at Tamworth Snowdome, has made me truly excited for the festive period!

And let’s face it, with bonfire night over it will be here before we know it!

There is one thing we can never have too prepared, and that of course, is our wardrobe! I love this time of year, nothing can be too overdressed or sparkling, from the classic LBD to a sophisticated playsuit – there is something for everyone this party season!

Here are a few of my favourites:

River Island £115

I know this dress is pricey, but wow, how perfect is it? I love the embellished shoulders, they give a touch of 80s whilst still maintaining class. Money can be saved on accessories with this dress, as there is already plenty of detail included.

River Island £30

These shorts are fab for adding some sparkle in a less obvious way. They can also be mixed and matched with various items, making them perfect for not being tagged in the same outfit twice 😉

Boohoo £25

You can always rely on Boohoo for a bargain; this dress has sequins, chiffon and an empire waist skirt – what more could you need in a Christmas outfit?

TFNC available at Asos £59

If you are fed up of the traditional black party dress, why not go white winter wonderland in this art deco inspired piece? This style ensures elegance!

If there isn’t anything that takes your fancy, you could try hiring a dress; I did this last year for my boyfriends works event – find out more by clicking here.

Let the countdown commence 🙂
