Woohoo!! After weeks of shopping and planning and preparations, Christmas is finally here…and I’m wishing you all the very merriest of celebrations, dear readers!! 🎁 I’m not sure how many of you will be visiting me on the actual day of – with gifts to open and dinners to eat and the focus on family and friends in the “real” world – but I’ll be here waiting with my special holiday outfit post when you do have a moment to grab a cup of tea (or maybe a glass of wine?) and catch up!!
Robin and I will be joining friends later for an evening of fun, festivities and good food (I can’t wait!) and of course I will be all dressed up for the occasion!! But I have a different ensemble in mind for tonight than the one that I’m showing you right now; this statement-making navy dress and coat combination was what I wore to my office Christmas party two weekends ago. I had tried out the dress on a whim several months back – with no “special occasion” in mind – and my hubby loved it so much that not only did he convince me to bring it home…but he purchased the matching coat for me, too!!
How lucky we were for our party (and this photoshoot!) that the weather was mild enough for me to get away with sandals…and sans sleeves!! Even on its own, the taffeta “princess” coat is a beautiful piece, but I really wanted to show you the dress as well; with its high-low bubble hem and that ruffled portrait collar, I’ll admit to feeling rather regal wearing it!! And how fitting that I had this jewel-bedecked little bag to go with my jewel-toned outfit…a gift from my mom a few years ago that always gets a workout during the festive season!!
Now I’m looking forward to hearing all about your holiday celebrations…but not before saying – once again – “have a merry, merry, Merry Christmas!!” 🎄
