HyvaPaiva Wed 25-Dec-13 11:38:09

More dressed up than down. Black sequin jumper, black and white boucle mini skirt with a silver thread through it, floral patterned black tights. I didn't intend to get dressed up but the sequins and silver threads were clearly calling to me.

PacificDingbat Wed 25-Dec-13 11:44:06

I am dressed up.
DH is dressed.
DS3+4 are dressed in new stuff that Santa brought.
DS1+2 are in their PJ onesies - they will need to be forced told to get dressed for Christmas dinner fgrin

CestelloAnnunciation Wed 25-Dec-13 11:59:50

Oh my GOD. Never ever had a PJ day at Xmas, always dressed up. We decided on the spur of the moment to get back in to fresh PJs after showers this morning...why have we not done this before?? Its bliiiiissssss.

dexter73 Wed 25-Dec-13 12:00:14

I am dressed up - black lace skirt, black top, black tights and leopard skin shoes. I love dressing up so always take the chance when I can.

novelsituation Wed 25-Dec-13 12:07:15

Currently wearing sports stuff as been out for a bracing walk.

After shower will dress up in the new Whistles dress which was my present from DH. Very happy.

Inbetween. Hush hareems and a white co top. Hugh feeding boobs and post c section tummy so hard to fit into much that's smart.

DCs are watching box set of Sherlock in pjs, dd still in stinky babygrow (will change her in a mo), DH just having shave and shower and am betting will be shorts and polo for him (he is a walking GAP advert and Christmas doesn't change that).

MillyChristmas Wed 25-Dec-13 12:12:23

Still in pjs and new slippers. Will wander upstairs and get dressed into a black pencil jersey skirt, black tight v necked fitted top and red cardigan.

Half dressed up. Ordered black Lydia dress from boden sale and it came yesterday.

Even accessorised too. Wearing necklace from dd2 and bracelet from dd2.

No makeup and hair is very unstyled but that's normal for me!

NoComet Wed 25-Dec-13 12:13:29

Theironfistofarkus Wed 25-Dec-13 12:15:08

TheBookofRuth Wed 25-Dec-13 12:20:33

Sort of inbetween. Black velvet skinnies, dark blue cowl neck Phase Eight jumper (present from DM), make up, and vintage 1940s earrings (present from DH). But I'm still in my slippers and have my hair pulled back into a ponytail to prevent it moulting into the Christmas dinner.

gastrognome Wed 25-Dec-13 12:21:38

Am dressed up in this (first dress in list). Don't usually get as dolled up but just fancied a change this Christmas. Am sparklier than the Christmas tree!!

Paintingrainbowskies Wed 25-Dec-13 12:40:37

Somewhere in the middle!

Red boden tunic which was a gift, black Dorothy Perkins Eden jeggings, heels but changing into my national sugar boots for the walk home from Mums.

MarshaBrady Wed 25-Dec-13 12:41:04

Middle. J Crew patterned jumper, wool grey shorts, black wool tights and neon plimsolls. Good for playmobil activity and cooking.

emseth Wed 25-Dec-13 12:47:56

My husband and I are in matching santa onesies.(don't normally do matching clothes but we've made an exception!) We're at my parents all day today. The large baby bump sets mine off nicely! fgrin

ironmansmum Wed 25-Dec-13 12:49:01

A dress, heels, makeup, hair, flashing necklace, the works! Needless to say by the time I've finished cooking ( and
having a festive tipple!) I will look slightly flustered but hey! Least I've tried. Merry Christmas!!!!!!

HereIsMee Wed 25-Dec-13 12:58:45

Deffinately dressed down just about to change into a onsie because we are having a chilled-out-stay-at-home Christmas today :-)

Fedupnagging Wed 25-Dec-13 12:59:59

Dressed down in ancient boden tunic and leggings as just been for long dog walk and its just us today.

Will do the dress, heels and makeup tomorrow when we go to relatives.

Madlizzy Wed 25-Dec-13 13:02:54

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

Up! Well I will be in a minute. grin

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.

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!

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

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.

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

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.

CarpeVinum Wed 25-Dec-13 17:32:02

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.

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...

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

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!

Pmsl at mithrail - sounds brilliant!

BikeRunSki Wed 25-Dec-13 17:47:11

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.

EarSlaps Wed 25-Dec-13 18:44:37

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

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.

Mrswellyboot Wed 25-Dec-13 22:00:33
