A Festive Passion For Fashion

 
 
 Hello.
 
xXx




 
 
Apologies for the blurry photos, I took these in artificial light (!)
This is an outfit I put together last night for going out to a Christmas do with my parents. The dress is actually a summer dress that I got for my birthday back in the spring, so is quite thin and floaty, but I was going for black and white with red and gold accessories, and my only other black dress was a little too much I thought. It was fine coupled with a warm cardigan.
 
My nails are gold with a glittery red top coat, both drugstore varnishes.
 
I tend to find myself throwing on skinny jeans and a t-shirt most days for 'everyday' wear, but it's amazing how instantly feminine putting on a dress can make you feel, especially if you find a cut that really suits you.
 
I'm sure there will be plenty more opportunities to wear dresses during the festive season, I'm looking forward to it!
 
Happy Christmas preparations, I've been busy putting up the decorations today- getting into the spirit :)

Love your outfit! I really like the black and white with the pop of color. I tend to wear my summer dresses in winter time, too. That way you get more use out of them:) Hope you're having fun getting into the holiday spirit!!
