The 12 outfits of Christmas – Day 5 – From day time jeans to a dress for a night out…


This evening we went round to see some friends for our annual Christmas get together, which was brilliant. I’ve worn this Pia dress from All Saints quite a few times recently but never in a dressed up way, so tonight it had the full on bling treatment with an H&M statement necklace, Stella & Dot bracelet, Marc Jacobs clutch and studded Carvela heels.  It made a nice change for the dress to take centre stage as usually it has something layered either under or over it – but at least it is versatile.

During the day I wore jeans, together with Zara boots, Hobbs blazer, Mulberry bag and GAP hat.

We’re off to Wales tomorrow so I hope to be able to blog whilst there but if not, I will be back on Monday. With the forecast being rain, rain and a little more rain, I don’t think that there will be a lot of heels, flimsy skirts and silk going on.

As for today’s gift, I love this personalised iPhone case from Not on the High Street (£25). Some people think that gifts like this have had their day but I love them. Anything that is thoughtful and individual to the person receiving it gets my vote.

    Hi Liz – Thank you, we will (as I sit here, yet again, in a Onesie and for some reason, a woolly Santa hat too.) You're right, the dress is really versatile. I think that it should see me right the way through the year so whilst a tad on the expensive side for a jersey dress, hopefully the cost per wear won't be too bad. Hope that you have a great Christmas Liz. x
