Christmas seems to have jumped upon me this year - I've felt like this year has gone super fast in general to be honest! Unfortunately, I have no Christmas parties to attend (don't pitty me, I don't like turkey or eggnog... or seeing the company MD doing the macarena with a Poundland Christmas hat on.). But I still like dressing up, so I felt the need to put together what probably would be my Christmas party outfit. I don't think I've ever done a 'going out' outfit on my blog... so this post and my next one are to change things up a bit and hopefully to inspire you to think about your more dressy winter outfits.

Of course, the outfit has an obligatory festive feel to it. I think sequins are perfect for Christmas and New Year so I spent a measly £7.50 (using a voucher code) on this sparkly skirt from Internacionale. It did originally have netting under the skirt, but I didn't think it looked to flattering, so I grabbed some scissors and chopped that off - I think it looks way better now! Nothing like a bit of DIY eh. 

The shirt is pretty much my favourite dressy shirt I own (I think I only own two... but still my favourite!). I think it was a tenner in the New Look sale around this time last year. I'm not one for bold shades (as I said in my River Island sale post!) but once I'd tried this on I thought it complimented my hair colour / skin tone well, so I was sold. I don't think I've actually featured it on my blog before, solely because of my lack of dressy outfit posts!

Have you got any ideas for Christmas (and dare I say) / New Years party outfits yet? I'd love to know your ideas! It's never too early to plan an outfit!

  26. Such a gorgeous outfit, I love the skirt! Sequins are definitely perfect for Christmas parties; I really want to have an amazing Christmas party outfit but ours is just a sit down meal at a little restaurant, can't really bring out the bling or I will be totally overdressed! Might just buy one anyway and wear it on Christmas Day :) xo
