My Perfect Christmas Dinner with Family Outfit...


A few weeks ago Marisota asked me if I would like to style some clothes for the perfect event this Christmas. I love a nights out, shopping trips and visiting family and the best day of the year for me is Christmas day. I love to spend this day with all my beautiful family. Our eldest son home from university, the children all home together. Perfect. My favourite day of the whole year.


My Perfect Christmas Day would go something like this...

All kids awake, all deny they woke up first, all deny they woke anyone else up. Ok then all up check Santa's sherry drunk carrot for reindeer eaten. Living room door open squeals, shrieks, minutes of shaking Santa has been!!All corners of room taken up by one of our children's presents. Quick breakfast washed down with tin of chocolates and mince pie. (not the whole tin).

Phone up family, wish them a Happy Christmas. Hope they had a lie in, and have had a nice morning.

Quick check all presents have been opened. Me and daughter get dressed up, nice dress the more sparkles the better. Glittery shoes or this year sandals on and a little bit of ruby red lipstick. Remember Turkey is not in oven, quickly dash to start it off.

A glass of wine for the cook when making dinner, perfect start to the day. Big dinner with all the trimming, eek.. Brussels sprouts all-round!! A few hours later it is time to eat again, grandma and granddad is coming for tea...

Share-In-Style : Shoes..


When it comes to shoes, you get my attention straight away!! 

I love shoes, always have and always will....

I don't always go for the sensible ones! Maybe a little high? a little uncomfortable? a little over the top? 

Or a little cheap in the sale.. That I did not really want or need..

I am trying to buy smarter and better quality these days though...

Always has to be now, something I love... something that is better quality...something that I will wear..

My favourite brand is Irregular Choice, love these shoes...








 




I even up-cycle my old shoes to give the a sparkle or two!!











And of course I love my flat lace ups...




Linking up my shoe addition here~

Too Hot For Jumpers, Too Cold For T-shirts!!


You know when it is too hot for jumpers, and too cold for t-shirts!?!

Yes?

Well that!!

It has been so mild over the last few days, not that I'm complaining, I am really hoping the cold weather stays away until we can find someone to mend our gas boiler!!

Off to do some shopping in Nottingham at the weekend I decided to wear a nice warm jumper for the mile walk to the train station as it was a bit fresh.

Only thing is the trains/shops/shopping centres are so nice and warm...

You have to keep taking the jumper off then keep putting it on again... 


What I wore~

Jumper ~ Primark
Scarf ~ c/o School Gates Style
Jeans ~ Abercrombie and Fitch
Boots ~ Barratts
Bag ~ Primark

Now the school holidays and inset days are over its back to the gym today...

I have been so lazy for the last week 4 weeks!!
