Well, December started out with good intentions. I decided that I would organise outfits to wear for my Christmas outings (all two of them), my family get-together and Christmas Day.
The idea being that December is so busy it would be nice to take the worry of what to wear out of the equation. Great idea. But I didn't do it.
I fell at the first hurdle. My first Christmas dinner (my first of two, I cannot stress that enough!). I arrived at the point where I had an hour to choose then dress in my chosen outfit and I had no idea what to wear!
So I went for absolute safety. My winter white sweater dress, teamed with red for a Christmas twist
Starting with a red necklace and a red, black and tan bangle, both made of wood. Black Gabor knee boots.
A claret pashmina for cose, colour and Christmas.
Check out the earrings, my Christmassy twist.
Maybe I should help you with the checking out. They are cute little black & white penguins with red pompom hats. Black, white and red, all the colours of my outfit. Subtle, but I knew they were there linking the outfit's colours.
I've been pulling these penguins out for Christmas for a fair few years. They make me feel festive, and truth be told, a bit young and frivolous!
It was no surprise that the bag went so well with the pash, I bought them together for an autumn wedding many years ago.
And this was my winter white sweater dress, done Christmassy.
But I just had to add some edge. This biker jacket is getting to be quite a staple in my wardrobe this autumn/winter.
And that was my hurriedly put together white, red and black outfit for my one (of two!) Christmas meals.
A la perchoine.
