Hi everyone! So this is my second to last Christmas post! I have really tried with the Christmas posts this year but I have also been really busy with my final year of university. If you haven’t read my previous xmas posts then for the Gift Guide, click here and for advice on what to remember around winter time, click here.
I have always struggled with Winter Outfits and therefore have never uploaded a Winter OOTD on my blog. But today, I am not only uploading one OOTD but 4! This is also my very first blog collab with another blogger and it is with the amazing Jess from Foundations and Fairytales ! Make sure to check out her post to see some amazing winter outfit ideas!
CHRISTMAS PARTY LOOK
I went out for my work Christmas meal/party and this is the outfit I decided on. I really wanted to look ‘christmassy’ rather than just dressed up. That is why I ordered a sparkly dress. As soon as I tried it on I new it was perfect for the party. I decided that I wasn’t comfortable in just a strappy dress so I decided to a plain white t-shirt underneath it and I loved this look. I put on my fave sock boots to keep my feet warm rather than a pair of strappy heels.
I am never normally big on accessories but I felt like this outfit really needed a necklace, especially with all that t-shirt space. I think the necklace is quite ‘religious style’ without being like religious if that makes sense? I managed to get this when Nasty Gal had a 50% off sale on so I was very happy with that. I deiced to add a little bit of colour by wearing my pink fluffy bag.

CHRISTMAS PARTY LOOK x2?
This outfit wasn’t for another Christmas Party I just didn’t know what to call this look. It was mine and Reece’s 4 year anniversary and we went out for food and drinks and this is the outfit that I wore. I have wanted a skirt like this for absolutely ages and I have ordered many different kinds in many different sizes and this has been my favourite, I love it. I feel like this skirt is also good for winter because it would look nice with black tights. You can also get this skirt in dark blue/black with white spots which I might have to get…
I mean, this outfit didn’t keep me very warm but at least I looked nice? Funny story, before we left the house I actually put on a pink puffer coat and white trainers because I thought I would be too cold and my feet would hurt. I was still absolutely freezing. God damn this winter weather. Like I said earlier, you could make this outfit suited for the winter weather by wearing tights and also a big winter coat. To finish off the outfit I wore a black chunky belt purely for the fashion, my skirt hasn’t even got belt loops. Another funny story, the belt is upside down in these pictures. I hadn’t even drank any alcohol (yet).

COMFY LOUNGE WEAR
I did a lot debating whether or not I should buy anything from the Playboy x Missguided range. I contemplated whether or not I will look like tacky. I decided to order a few bits anyway and realised that I do in fact, look tacky but I love it, hahaha! But honestly, a lot of the range were hideous and a lot were really nice. I decided on this plain beige joggers and hoodie with black bunnies printed on it. It has a soft fleece lining and I am very impressed with them. They are oversized and snug. My Nannah isn’t a fan of the Playboy unfortunately and wanted me to send it back, sorry Nannah <3.
I love lounge wear, especially around Christmas time because it is cold and you want to chill around the house a lot. For me, this tracksuit has been a lifesaver for when I go to the uni library. It also seems to be cold in there and this outfit keeps me warm. Writing this now, I am in fact in the library wearing the hoodie. To make this outfit a bit interested a wore my Louis Vuitton bag. JOKING I WISH. It does look like a Louis Vuitton print but it is actually from Missguided for much much much cheaper. I do love this bag. I wore some old Nike Air Max 95s with this outfit.

Christmas Shopping, you either love it or you hate it. But what is important is that you keep warm. But, wearing too many layers will make it very difficult in shops as you will get hot and sweaty. I decided on a long sleeve crop-ish white top with black flare trousers and a long thick coat. So if I get too hot, I can easily take the coat off. I struggle so much finding nice big winter coats but I absolutely love this one.

Regarding accessories, once again I put on a belt purely for fashion and then I matched it with this gorgeous fury leopard print bag. Whilst shopping, especially around Christmas time, my shoulder tote bag gets so fully up and it always takes a while for me to reach my purse. I like having another smaller bag on me just for my purse and phone. It makes life a lot easier. I have been lovely leopard print recently too.
