[Outfit: Seven boot lane boots, Cos jeans, Jaeger boutique jumper, Miss Selfridge scarf]
So today I’ve decided to start my 12 outfits of Christmas feature. It’s the third year that I’ve done this now (I think) but I’m sure that by day 4 I will have run out of ideas and I will be asking you all to contribute – which of course you are all more than welcome to do anyway. Maybe my Mum will even let me have a photo of herself in her New Look Christmas jumper. She’s just had her hair permed so I’m sure that she’s feeling on top of the world right now.
My aim is to include outfits for lots of different occasions so whilst the outfits may not all be “live” hopefully they may give some ideas – whether they be ideas of what to wear or what NOT to wear. As with last year, I’m hoping to include a gift idea each day too. I won’t lie, they will be girlie all the way!
OK so clearly I’m not up to anything overly glamourous today but even on those days when you’re doing lots of jobs and ferrying children around for their MOTs (dentists/opticians etc) there’s no reason not to include a little something special. So I’ve come up with the term (or maybe I haven’t at all but I’ve not heard it anywhere before) of Clamour – casual glamour – which is really your scruffs but with a bit of bling, fur, sparkle or whatever takes your fancy.
I’ve added this fur scarf from Miss Selfridge (reduced from £25 to £12.50) to my outfit, which I’m also using as my gift idea for the day. They come in several colours – pale pink, mint green, black and mine is the grey one. I’d been after a fur scarf for a while but all the ones that I had come across were pretty pricey. Then I saw this one and thought “that will do nicely thank you very much” and I haven’t taken it off since. Although it isn’t furry on the back, it has a nice satin lining so it still looks nice and it’s also slightly gathered at the bottom which makes it sit well. I reckon that receiving something like this on Christmas morning could make that enforced after lunch walk a whole more appealing, especially when all you really want to do is to sit on your bum watching telly and eating chocolate.
So anyway, onwards and upwards. Here’s looking forward to Day 2…..
