Ah, Christmas. Time to spend quality time with our friends and family. To relax and eat. And to dress up! Well, for some……
Every year, I spend Christmas Day (we Dutchies call it first Christmas Day, since we have two) with my family. We play shuffle board and eat Raclette. Not really an occasion to dress up in your finest frock since eating Raclette involves frying small pieces of meat, vegetables or fish on a hotplate set the middle of the dining table. Playing shuffle board in a ball gown or super tight little black dress isn’t a very good idea either, if you want to keep up with my super competitive family members.
So each year I try to find a festive yet comfortable outfit to wear. And maybe, just maybe, I will wear pants this year. I found these cute tartan pants at H&M. I think they just scream Christmas, don’t you think?
The cute present bag is from Joanie Clothing (shop here). The H&M pants are sold out online everywhere (you could try in store). Some alternatives can be bought here or here.
This outfit is definitely a contestant for this year too. The gorgeous top (with birdcage print!) is not too warm (hotplate!) and is wide enough to shuffle those disks. The bag from Mint&Berry via Zalando (here) and skirt (old, similar here) add a touch of chic. The top is from the Emily Lovelock AW 2017 collection (shop here).
This beautiful Emily Lovelock dress leaves enough room for food and games. I can always loosen the belt, if needed (or rather: when needed). The dress is not in stores yet, I will update this post when it is. The bag is from Furla (shop similar here) and the heels are from New Look (shop here).
Last year I wore this gorgeous skirt. I did cover it up during dinner (couldn’t find a similar flock print tulle skirt, but here’s one with hearts from J.Crew)!
Two years ago (sorry for the quality, I was even less skilled in photography back then). Yes, I love Christmas kitsch! Both outfits are old, obviously.
I’ll let you know which outfit made the cut for Christmas. It’s still too early to wish you a merry Christmas, so I’ll just wish you a happy rest of the week!
