Not very exciting but I am wearing a black top with lace sleeves (it is very lightweight so great for cooking) an black skinny jeans and sparkly ankle boots. Getting a shellac and hair cut too. I feel good in these and dresses are lovely but tights too hot
I think I'm going for a dress I bought in Hobbs in the sale in September, it's 3/4 sleeves, a thick jersey, navy with small white flowers embroidered on it (in some lights they look like snowflakes), worn with navy tights and slippers grey ankle boots (however as I'm not leaving the house, I'll probably still have slippers on when PIL arrive and forget to change footwear).
Alternatively, I might go for a black suede a-line mini skirt, black tights, burgundy silky top, and big silver statement necklace (this will look better with slipper boots on my feet, and might be cooler for all the cooking).
I'm feeling a little unsure as I haven't gone out to get a Christmas Day outfit this year for myself, although ds has a new shirt and chinos and dd has a pretty party dress to wear, I do need to stop putting the dcs first!
Oh and my outfit requirement, has to be cool enough to cook in, has to be decent when on the floor with toddler dd playing with her new toys, has to be forgiving over the tummy area as I will be eating everything... has to look relatively ok with slippers as every year I never get round to putting shoes on if we are hosting
i'm wearing a black swishy sequin skirt and a bright pink cashmere sweater with black velvet mary jane flats for christmas day, a rose gold swishy sequin skirt and black cardigan for boxing day witht he same black velvet mary jane shoes and then on my third christmas lunch on the 29th i'm wearing a black and grey striped phase eight jumper dress with black tights and grey boots
I quite fancy a sequin or tulle skirt with a fine-knit black jumper - anyone seen anything nice that can be delivered in time? Liked the Johnnie B sequin skirt on another threw but fear the age 13-14 (biggest still I stock) will be too titchy.
Black leggings (sainsburys), long line vest top (sainsburys) and a sparkly silver lightweight jumper (Boden relaxed crew neck). Usually it would be skinny jeans with a smart top but comfort is key this year as will hopefully have a 3-day-old newborn
