The 12 days of Christmas - Day 11: Christmas Eve - don't you just love it?!

As I stood there in my tracksuit bottoms and sloppy cardi just after lunchtime, my husband looked at me and said "Are you planning on getting dressed today?" It was a fair point and well made - albeit funny from the person who has no idea what he has in his wardrobe.  In reality, everything was in place, it was just the dress that I needed to put on. However first of all I wanted to get to that stage in the day (washing done, floors swept, tidying up done) where I felt that Christmas could "begin".
I first wore this Elm Dress from Hobbs when shooting the campaign for the Pavilions shopping centre at the end of the summer. I liked it so much that I went on to buy it but held off from wearing it until today.
Unlike the black Jigaw dress which I wore a couple of days ago, it's less versatile but I liked the tartan print and the shape. I layered a blue top underneath for warmth and also wore a navy blazer with it when we went out. Warm tights are a must for me. I was working with a client a few weeks ago and she told me that the reason that she didn't wear skirts and dresses in the winter was because she was always too cold in tights. Well that was easily fixed!

I hope that everyone's Christmas preparations are still going to plan. Not long now. Happy Christmas to you all!
