Feeling festive!

Leave a Comment

Hey you lovely lot!

Hope you are all well & getting yourself all geared up for the festivities ahead! I for one am VERY excited for the next couple of weeks, I've always been an absolute child at Christmas - to the point where I do my friends heads in - & I really thought that by the time I reached the last one of my 20's that I'd be a little bit more over it by now - but nope, I'm still as bad, infact, if anything, worse! I've managed to get the title of elf in the office & my living room looks like a bleedin' grotto! BUT, I totally know I'm not on my own, so that in my eyes, makes it absolutely fine! :)

Now, don't get me wrong, spending time with family & friends, the high spirits, the food & the presents all play it's part in why I get so excited.. but one of the main reasons I love this time of year is the absolute necessity to get dressed up for literally any occasion! For example, this afternoon I decided to do some baking.. which lead to .. I need to dress for the part & have festive apron! Obviously!

Christmas Day is always a tricky one for me - but it always ends up being the same thing.. velvet! This year I have bought a gorgeous Blue Velvet Dress - Which I've just double checked & is now only £12!!!

So this leads me nicely on to a lovely day I had at Wollaton park with Bella Coco & Austen Blakemore Photography where said dress was my outfit of choice! :) A huge thank you to Austen for the photos from the day, it was so inspiring to see how passionate you are about your work & we enjoyed every second of the day - even the point where I turned the same colour as my dress! hehe! ;)

I shall put all of Austen's details at the bottom of this post, I couldn't recommend him more to shoot your special day, he made us feel so at ease & was relentless to get the perfect shot!
Yep that's me, just casually sat on a tree in Wollaton Park! haha.. but I just love how Austen has caught the light perfect on my dress, it shows the richness of the blue perfectly!

I love this dress just because it's sooo easy to wear & doesn't cling - & let's face it, on Christmas day, the last thing we want is a dress that shows just exactly how much we've eaten that day!! Poor SJ, I don't think she was quite expecting bunny ears for this pic!

You can just about see it on the image but I'm wearing the most gorgeous bracelet from Rara de Barr this is called the Imogen Bracelet & is only £16. I wore it for my Christmas party at work too & it received so many lovely comments.. I'm a big fan of the Gatsby Cuff too.. again a bargain at only £16.50!

This is one of my favourite images of the day, can you believe that this lovely dress is only £12 now? It looks so expensive on this pic - I'm wearing the ever so popular Asos Ka Ching boots which have been sold out for some time now, however I've seen that Schuh do the exact same ones - Black Proposition Boots for £70.

So this obviously isn't the only velvet option out there, the high street is absolutely full of the fabric at the minute! ..but as far as value for money & choice goes then is massively up there for me... here's some of my other favourites they have to offer.
Not sure about the velvet trend but want to get involved? I live in these bella velvet bow headband's & they are only £6 - perfect for those days where you want to look good but not got time to wash your hair!

You can't beat a good plunge neckline for a special occasion, I always hear people say they are too flat chested for a plunge, but personally I think the smaller the better.. but then maybe I've trained my mind to think that way! haha.. This Maisie velvet plunge neckline jumpsuit is £20 & comes in blue too.

ThisRiona high neck lace and velvet bodycon dress is soo nice & only £15! I love the eyelash details on the sleeves.. <3

Will you be buying velvet to wear this Christmas?
