A classic, navy, fail safe dress courtesy of Cos

As with the past two years, this year I will be running my “12 outfits of Christmas” feature, where I will be bringing you an outfit a day for 12 days over the festive period. However, this means that between now and then, I will be digging deep into my wardrobe to wear things that I haven’t worn for a while. Well, it’s either that or go out and by 12 new outfits. Now there’s an idea.

So today I wore a navy Cos wool dress, which I have had for about three years and which I bought as I was presenting at a conference. It is lovely and warm and I like the horizontal zip detail on it, although I am always slightly concerned that someone will come up to me and “un-zip” me. This is a good dress to have in my wardrobe – not uber trendy but more of a classic style which won’t let me down. I also wore my new Topshop statement necklace and Jigsaw shoe boots.

I decided not to edit this photo as had I done so, you may have all wondered where my eyes had disappeared. The reality was that I was really laughing at my friend who was taking the photo in our local M&S as she practically had necklaces wedged up her nose at times.

    The necklace looks fab with the dress Beth.

      Hi Mrsmac and thank you – I think that it will be making a lot of appearances over the next few weeks!

      Hey Leila – you're too kind. I'm not sure I have ever been described as adorable before – or chic – so thank you!
