”Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves and, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys they’d just walk around naked at all times.’ – Betsey Johnson
December is my favourite month of the year. Not only because it’s Christmas and i get some time off work, but it’s the time of year when i go out more than any other month, and that means an excuse to by a shedload of new outfits! My style (if you can call it that) is often very casual, i’m very much a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl and i don’t normally get dressed up unless i’m going to a wedding.
It hit me a few months ago when i went on a hen do and for comfort reasons i just threw on a pair of black jeans and a nice top and went out. As soon as i got out i was kicking myself for not making more of an effort and styling it out in a pencil skirt, all the other girls looked so glamourous and i looked like a scruff. So i’m upping my game this year. I probably only have a couple of good years left in me where i’m still young enough to dress to the nines and i’m not in that ’40 and frumpy’ age bracket. This year, i’m going to town, literally. Here are some of my favourite outfits from the festive season, i’ve tried to add links to each thing (or something similar) where i can!
