Planning For the Xmas Period
There is a ridiculous amount of Christmas cuteness around for the kids at the moment but today is about you lovely lot. Not novelty and reindeers this year I’m afraid but good old posh frocks and cosy knits. In preparation of this weekends mammoth deals I have put together this little selection of loveliness.
As much as I love all out festive glamour I always have to be practical and remember most of my days will be spent tearing around and attending everything from school nativity plays to kids Christmas jumper parties (don’t ask). I am also planning a few much needed drinks with friends and of course the big day itself. This in my opinion needs a bit of a posh outfit as I love nothing better than getting dressed up in new threads come Christmas morning. I’m very much in to mixing a bit of glitz and a bit of comfort that looks like you’ve made an effort but can still have you crawling round on the floor after the little ones. Obviously there may be times that require full on glitz and child free glamour so you may find a few sequins sneaking their way in there.
In the summer I bought a few things from the Archive by Alexa collection at M&S and this season the pieces are that touch more glam. I’ve had my eye on the silver Aire shirt which would be perfect paired with some skinny jeans and cute ballet pumps for day or a pair of heels for evening.
For those pregnant mamma’s then I love the simple PJ styling of this shirt from Topshop. It would be great with a pair of black maternity jeans or leggings and could easily work from the office to a catch up with friends.
