So this will be the last post to go up before Christmas from me now, and that is for a few reasons. Number 1 – because if you’re anything like me then you will most likely be in a serious food/baileys/mulled wine-coma, not even up to the task of watching Elf, let alone sit and read a blog post.
And number 2? Because my outfit/makeup choices are anything but seasonal at the best of times – especially the festive season (Elle + a red lip = A clown) – so it would pretty much be my usual everyday kind of posts, and that’s just not really going to cut it on Christmas day.
So here’s an Outfit that I wore Christmas shopping, a few days before Christmas. And if I put Christmas in bold, that totally means this is a festive post, right? Oh, it doesn’t? Awkward…
I promise I’ll move on to the pictures asap but a few things to note first –
1) Shooting outfit photo’s in Westfield on one of the busiest shopping days of the year is embarrassing. So I do look extremely mortified/”Hurry the fuck hell up and take it quick”-esque.
2) It was extremely windy. So those ‘hand in hair’ poses, for once, are actually natural.
3) My playsuit is severely creased. We’re totally just going to ignore that fact.
A little ‘behind the scenes/candid’ featuring my best “Hurry up and get the focus right, I’m freezing here!” face.
I am the biggest believer in the fact that florals are not just for summer and should indeed be worn all year round. I absolutely love the darker, duskier tones of this beauty of a playsuit from H&M and think it’s the perfect transitional piece taking you from season to season – although let’s face it, by the time spring rolls around, I will no doubt have lost this under a plethora of new Primark buys.
It is ridiculously comfortable though with a cut/fit that will easily see me through cheeseboards, mince pies, roast potatoes etc. as well as being tailored enough to look smart. It’s basically made for me.
