I'm just not a stay in your pyjamas kind of a person. I wore cream lace blouse, black pleather pencil skirt, black opaques and heeled red ankle boots.

Casual but a bit more effort than my scabby trackies. Nice wool dress, make-up & nails done but been in my nice slipper boots (present from MIL) for most of the say.

A £4 Great Plains jumper dress and £10 Christmas leggings from Primark. Dressy but nothing tight around my bloated belly now.

LaTrucha Wed 25-Dec-13 18:34:05

Safe to say, I'll not be wearing my mithrail again, save to go on a dragon-slaying quest. Apart from today. It is staying on all day today.

ZenNudist Wed 25-Dec-13 17:43:26

Dressed up as much as i can. Went out for posh restaurant lunch but would still try look nice on Christmas Day even when staying in.

Maternity wrap dress, nice earrings, done my hair & make up & nails. Since we got home added a cashmere cardi and slippers!

In between - navy cashmere crew neck, Goldsign skinnies, silver statement necklace, Jimmy Choo glittery anthracite high tops and a silver a Kenzo tiger ring.

LaTrucha Wed 25-Dec-13 17:41:11

Well, I tried dressed up casual, which meant wearing heels in the house with a sequin t'shrt.

First of all I trod on DS in the heels in an over present stumble blush

Since then, D bro has said I look like something out of the hobbit .... you know with armour on ... no! but nice, really! ... like Mithrail ...

DS has said I look 'scaly'

DD's contribution was, 'You know: like a sparkly fish.'

DH has said nothing, except to question why I was having a glass of win after the meal was finished.

And breathe. Composure is the most flattering thing...

I am now in pajamas. It rained. The guttering of the low roof in the back went Niagra Falls.

I got covered in muck scooping in out...... lots of bread rolls?!?!?!?!?!? confused

I have no idea how lots of bread rolls got in my guttering. I am not sure I want to know. All I know is fishing out soggy bread rolls of an overflowing guttering and down pipe in pouring rain dictates a change of clothes post shower,

It is loverly to be in fluffy pajamas and all comfortable. Dinner won't mind if I cook it in an inelegant state of dress.

Vaguely dressed up for now. Red dress (only thing that fits over bump) and maternity jeans, but will be changing into jamas in a bit.

Rufustherednosedreindeer Wed 25-Dec-13 15:51:36

Until 20 mins ago I had my new cigarette trousers from river island a black t shirt and a statement necklace. I now have pj bottoms on with a my t shirt and necklace....they are tartan!!! In another hour or two I will be completely in my pjs

DH jeans and smart shirt, ds1 his new onsie, dd her new party dress, ds2 smart trousers and Christmas themed long t shirt, my dad and his wife are in Christmas jumpers and black trousers

At home all we have done is pop to the graveyard. Should go for a walk but really can't be bothered

CarpeVinum Wed 25-Dec-13 15:41:14

I am wearing a cashmere (barginous 26 euro) dress over leggings with holes and bleach splashes from ankle to knee. And duvet.

I will push the boat out for regulation Red Knickers For Luck on NYE.

Middling - t-shirt, tube skirt, cardi but make up and hair done. Oh and Christmas socks.

SundaySimmons Wed 25-Dec-13 15:32:58

Every year I wear a red dress.

Some years I've splurged but this year I've bought a simple one from Asos.

It's perfect as I don't like being hot in the kitchen and doesn't clash with my slippers too much!

ShoeWhore Wed 25-Dec-13 13:04:23

Silk dress and high heels. Always like to dress up on Christmas Day, even if it's just us.

ImAnElfJeSuisUneElf Wed 25-Dec-13 13:04:05
