What I Wore – Christmas Throwback

I have had lots of questions about some of the outfits I wore when I was at home over the Christmas break.  So firstly, thank you for everyone who asked.  It’s always a massive compliment when someone likes your outfit and/ or your styling! I decided that I would share a few of the favourites with you and where I got them.  Everything is stuff I have already planned on wearing again but in a different way or perhaps the same, we’ll see! I was actually really happy with how I styled these outfits. I felt comfy all the time and you know that’s what I am all about.

First up is my Christmas Eve outfit. We have a family night on Christmas Eve where all of us get together for the evening and spend time catching up. It’s definitely a night you want to be wearing clothes that won’t be annoying you for the night!! This jumper dress was ideal. I have it in grey too. Along with wearing them as dresses with patterned tights, I sometimes pair them with skinny jeans and boots, just to mix it up. They are F&F from Tesco however, as they no longer sell online I have popped a similar version below.

This outfit above is what I wore on Christmas Day. Majority of this outfit is from Primark and again they are not online but you can look out for them in stores. I have left similar links under the photo so you can re-create it if you like. I was actually really happy with this outfit. It wasn’t what I had originally planned on wearing but… my first choice kind of made me look like a potato and I just didn’t feel right. Looking back on this photo I cannot wait to wear this again! It was a mix of of different fabrics and it was comfy to wear for the day. The boots are the same as I wore Christmas Eve. They are from Topshop and I adore them. They have a slightly higher heel than my normal ankle boot choice and the first time I wore them, I found them a little uncomfortable however, after a couple of wears I find them far better. They have loosened out and easier to walk in for a few hours!

This co-ord was my St Stephens #OOTN (outfit of the night). I mean the only reason I wanted to go out was to wear this outfit! I was actually sick and wasn’t sure I would be able to but I put all that to the back of my mind and went out for a few hours. The day I seen this suit, I knew I had to get it. It’s extremely comfortable and the colour is amazing. The blazer is a real easy-wear piece of clothing so I had no problem getting that. I was worried about the trousers though. I was concerned about how I would re-wear they but after thinking it over I have come out with lots of different ways I want to style them, especially when we moving into Feb/ March time. I’ll keep you updated.

Finally, this was my new years outfit below. It was a really casual night as we were having a small party at home. I wanted to make sure I was really comfy. I decided on my skinny jeans with a shirt I picked up from Zara. I teamed it with a cardigan that I found when I was out shopping with my mam over the Christmas. It’s from a local shop in Westport. It’s a place where my mam has always shopped called, The Mall Boutique. They don’t have a website but it’s worth having a look on their Facebook and contacting them if you like anything you see. Here’s the link. The cardigan is great quality and perfect for layering over jeans or even skirts.

I also treated myself to boots that I absolutely love.  Every year I try to save to buy myself a little Christmas Present. A little to me from me sort of thing and it’s usually shoes! lol, no shock there!! I always pay a visit to a local shop in Mayo, Gerry McGuire’s because they usually have a selection of shoes and bags that are right up my street.  This year they didn’t disappoint! I fell in love as soon as I lay my eyes on them.  I didn’t buy them on the spot.  I decided to leave it for a day or two and think about them to make sure they were what I wanted and they were.  Now, like most of my fashion choices, they are not everyone’s taste but they are mine and even if you hate them, I LOVE THEM!! They are really comfortable and I know I will get so much wear out of them.  They are perfect for work.  They cost €185 which I know it pricey but I always think of my cost per wear. Prepare to see these bad boys A LOT for the next while! 🙂

That’s all of my favourite outfits I wore over the Christmas. I hope you liked them too!
