I spotted this gorgeous sequin jumper (£22) in Tesco (yes) whilst food shopping and couldnt resist! I thought it would be perfect for the festive season and given today is New Year Eve this may well be my outfit tonight!!
Although the sleeves are covered in sequins there is something quite subtle about this – don’t you think?!
Worn with my River Island faux leather trousers and Clarks Anika Kendra shoes.
This month’s My Little Box was created in collaboration with beauty blogger Fleur de Force. I really like her vlogs so was excited to see what was in the box!
As always the box itself is gorgeous and once opened revealed lots of little pretty goodies.
First is a blush pink knitted wool headband. I think this is very pretty and actually quite flattering so will definitely be using this during the winter months.
The next set of items were all gift wrapping related – a little pack of patterned masking tape, some gorgeous gift tags and a spool of lovely cotton to tie your gift tags with.
Then inside a lovely little cloth drawstring bag were a miniature Cowshed body lotion and a L’Occitane Precious Face Cream which will be perfect for my upcoming holidays.
The last item was a lipstick from the Little Beauty Range. This sheer reddish/pink lipstick is meant to be the perfect shade for every skin tone and I have to say that it definitely suited me! The texture is really light and moisturising and it gives a lovely sheer wash of colour.
So yet again I am extremely pleased with this month’s treats and am going to keep my subscription going.
I found this great outfit from River Island which I thought would be ideal for any of my Christmas parties – skinny faux leather trousers (£40) and a sparkly light knit (£26). I never thought I would like faux leather trousers but these are flattering and really comfortable.
I think this look is understated but edgy and something different for the festive season!
Worn with Clarks Anika Kendra shoes.
I have a real thing for major party skirts (see picture below and here for my Topshop party skirt that I wore for my 40th birthday party).
I absolutely adore the retro feel combined with the glamour of it. I would always pair skirts like these with a simple top to balance the look. So having had a good look around I have to say most of my finds were from Asos (and Coast which can also be found in Asos).
The first of these is the longest option – a beautiful organza floral maxi skirt (£75).
Next is a shorter tulle skirt also in a fab floral print (£65).
This is my favourite (£75), I think its the length of this that I find so flattering.
Next is this slightly more daytime skirt but also very pretty (£45).
And finally a stunner from Coast (£125).
So is this your perfect New Year’s Eve outfit?
I have been lusting after the Mis en Dior earrings for a while now but as you can imagine they are not cheap (start at about £250). Now if you are really lucky someone may buy you these for Christmas!
First of all this is what the original Dior earrings looks like – they come in lots of different styles as you can see below!
My favourites are these gold star and pearl ones for £350!
Obviously at these prices I have been searching everywhere for some dupes and I finally found them in New Look for the lovely price of £2.99 for each set.
So first I purchased the dark silver double pearl earrings and the cream double pearl earrings (£2.99 each) – see below
I then purchased a 6 pack of assorted sized pearl studs in the grey, cream and also pink (also £2.99).
I then mixed up how I wore them to give me lots of different combinations – see pictures below!
So for the grand total of £8.97 I have a lovely combination of sets that I can create that all look amazing and unique! I think this is an absolutely classy yet modern look and perfect to pair with any Christmas or New Years party outfit.
After discovering my beautiful personalised rose gold bracelet on Not on the High Street I had to do a post on the other amazing personalised gifts I found there while browsing. I have to say one of my favourite sellers is Lily Belle where I got my bracelet from, but I have included a couple of others and some gifts for kids and the boys too! These are such perfect gifts especially for Christmas as you can add your own unique stamp to all of them.
