I bought a couple of things recently with Christmas/New Year nights out in mind but no complete outfit yet.

I'm an 18 and rather short.

I bought these two from Pink Clove jacket

and I like this from White Stuff tunic

Unfortunately none of these go together so ideas needed.

Anyone else like to share they are wearing for Christmas Day and night out?

Wow looks great. I'm only 5'2 so not sure I'd pull it off.

I think you could, but you would probably have to play with the trouser length to fix it. Or wear scary-high platform heels!

I think it's the length of the body that might be tricky. Definitely considering it though. I like the simplicity of them.

A quick google search shows Next has some jumpsuits in petite sizes that might work. for example

Has anyone bought anything from the high street recently? I have an hour in the morning to find something to wear for a night all day black eye Friday drinking session out next weekend.

I also need shoes / boots - low heel and very, very wide. I have lymphodoema in my left foot / leg and really struggle. So far I've tried Evans (but only a little shop - one in town is bigger so hopeful) Clarks, Debenhams and New look but can'tsqueeze into any boots at all this year!

Had to share this fantastic tunic top in the Planet sale, really really flattering on and the light glitter over it makes it perfect for Christmas. I also bought the ponte treggings (although I hate that word), had them before and very versatile under tunics or layers. Maybe too late for online order but possibly get them in store.

I love some of those dresses especially the ones on the pink clove site but think they may be a bit short for me as I'm 5'7" and I hate my knees!

I'll be looking for larger maternity wear in the new year so any help would be much appreciated smile

Congratulations auntiemaggie. I found maternity clothes shopping tricky. I had black yoga type trousers from next which were comfy for around the house and a great pair of combats from Simply Be. Tops from Dorothy Perkins were quite good.
