my christmas day outfit.

Sequin dress - Newlook

Ankle Boots - Office
Cardigan - Newlook

Christmas has come and gone so quickly this year, sort of blink and you miss it. The day before Christmas I received a lovely package in the post, from the people behind F&F clothing for Tesco with possibly the prettiest jacket I have ever owned inside! The beautiful rust colour and the faux fur collar is exactly what I love.

Christmas day in my household is all about food, our family quiz and having a laugh...the sequin dress probably wasn't a good idea if I was planning on stuffing my face! I decided I would spend the day catching up on eating chocolate since I haven't eaten it for just over four months. It was lovely. So for one day I could eat as much chocolate as I wanted and I could only stomach one...yes one bar of Galaxy Caramel, I disgusted myself with my poor effort. Enough beating myself up over the lack of chocolate in my life more about my new fab F&F jacket.

I pretty much fell in love with the jacket the first moment i saw it, as you can see from one of my recent blog posts, black, black and black I have had a little winter obsession with jackets with fur collars. The jacket itself is snug and warm, If you are to order I would maybe tempted to go a size up just its a little snug in places if I was to put a thick jumper underneath. I'm not use to longish jackets as being a tiny human it can swamp me a little, but with my ankle boots I think it really works. I do love to stick my hands in my pockets when wearing a jacket, a kind of comfort thing, for some reason the pockets are quite far back on this jacket. I do love the colour against my hair, it one of the loveliest jackets I have worn.

It was nice to wear something fancy on Christmas day, made it feel that little bit more special.
