Despite often living in legging and baggy tops, I have always made an effort to dress nicely at Christmas. I am sharing my Christmas outfits wishlist this year using Long Tall Sally products as part of their #dearsally initiative.
1. Christmas shopping
This can be done online or on the High Street. I tend to do it offline as I like being around excited people and listening to Christmas music in the shops.
I think jeans work best when you are dashing about and I selected these colourful ones.
I don’t like a jumper when out shopping as I inevitably end up hot and bothered. I liked this top particularly with the sheer panel to make it that little bit different.
Again thinking about the fact that I am likely to get warmer as the day goes on, I loved this 3 in 1 coat. You can judge the weather and decide whether to wear the inner jacket alone or the full coat. I always like a colourful lining so with this choice I would be in the pink.
Finally, I do love a good pair of boots in the Winter (or at anytime of year for that matter). I selected this pair to complete my Christmas shopping outfit.
2. Christmas Party
I am actually going to a Christmas party this year. This is a good reason to get the legs out and to wear a dress.
This jacket is right up my street and provides that essential arm coverage until I have had a rum and coke and stop caring.
There has got to be something glittery at Christmas so I how about these shoes?
3. Christmas Day
There were so many choices for Christmas Day. Perhaps a purple maxi dress or a red lace number. In the end I chose this tunic as it put me in mind of Christmas trees and I always seem to look good in this particular shade of green.
I would team this either with thick tights or leggings.
Christmas might also include a bracing walk in the countryside or a trip to church and this coat would be great for both.
Now to fulfil a fantasy, I would love to wear tall boots and am delighted to see these are offered with a wider calf fitting.
4. Gift Ideas
When it comes to gifting, I tend to think what I might like and then get that for a female friend. I have a thing about nightwear and the prettier the better.
Check out Long Tall Sally for some other gorgeous options and for price and size details. Yes they do bigger sizes so they get a thumb’s up from me.
