so this is christmas

 
blouse: Primark
shorts: Topshop

Merry Christmas to you all, I hope you're all having a wonderful day and got lots of lovely stuff! I'm currently waiting on my Christmas feast dinner, I would help but there's something about Christmas day that makes my dad switch and he literally won't let anyone else in the kitchen! To be honest I'm still pretty full from the mammoth breakfast we had, paired with a glass of Buck's Fizz! I think Christmas is the only day of the year when it's acceptable to be tipsy before noon!

We went through the usual rounds of putting everyone's presents into separate piles, watching Beigel frantically unwrap his gifts and cringe at my mum not liking half of the things she got (it's not her fault though, my dad - like most men I imagine - got all of it yesterday and probably didn't even think about half of what he was buying). I didn't get any surprises from Lewis this year because I ordered it all myself with his card, but he's not exactly one to take hints so what was I to do? I did very well though - he loves his Darth Vader clock and Pantone socks especially!



As you can see I got lots of lovely things also! My favourite has to be Lotso just because I waited for so long. I knew I'd got him but I saved opening him till last anyway! He seriously smells so good (like strawberries!) and Beigel keeps trying to take him for himself! I think I'm going to exchange the shoes as I love them but they don't suit me very much.. possibly for these ones instead?! Knowing my luck nothing will be in stock now, not really looking forward to the manic crowds in shopping centres after Christmas looking for goodies in the sales!

I should probably actually talk about my outfit, shouldn't I?! I got the blouse last week sometime, and I've only just tried it on. I'm not really sure about it (I have a pussybow version also, both with tags still intact!), I think it makes me look rather big and it's not quite opaque enough! It has a dip back which would look quite nice paired with high waisted black jeans I think, but sadly I have none that fit right! It's too high at the front to wear leggings with so I don't know what to do! I think I have more than enough clothes though so I'll probably return it. What do you think?

My dinner should be ready soon, I don't think I've ever had it so late at Christmas! I'm seriously looking forward to all the rubbish telly on tonight, is Sean Slater coming back on EastEnders tonight? I certainly hope so, what a babe!

  3. I bought those tan ones on christmas eve, so happy i did as they are sold out now! I want the black ones, they are so lush. Think I might get them next week with my Christmas money :)

    I like the blouse, especially buttoned to the top. Maybe it doesn't want to be pulled out as much, that would be more flattering? Otherwise I think you look really sweet!

    Hope you had a good feast and day!

  8. My stupid computer won't load the third picture ¬¬ i've refreshed the page a lot of times but nothing. Well, i can say that i'm so jealous about Lotso!!! I wish i could buy it in my country (and all the other Toy Story toys... but the original ones! not those weird versions, i like the ones that are exactly like the ones you see in the movie lol).

  9. I love the leather shorts you're wearing. You got Lotso from Toy Story 3! I would be a little creeped out to have him near my bed while I sleep though, hahaha. I think you feel like it's too big because you buttoned it all the way. I think it looks fine with what you paired it with though!

  12. I'm wearing an outfit almost identical to yours today, only mines is the pussybow blouse. Personally I'm not a fan of shirts that button up to the top so I'd probably exchange it for the pussybow version but it does look really nice on you!

    You got some great Christmas presents too! Love the diary (?) and the leopard slippers!

  16. I have this blouse and I feel the opposite about it - I love it! Sure the quality isnt the greatest, but for a tenner from Primark I'm not one to complain! It looks lovely with the shorts :)

  18. I think the blouse looks lovely. I don't think it makes you look big at all!

  19. I think the blouse's color looks quite nice on your skintone, actually. I don't think the cut's unflattering...although if you're self conscious you could pair it with something more high-waisted?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ah, I bought this dip-hem blouse too, but in the cream. Ended up taking it back because I thought it wasn't the most flattering of blouses and it's actually quite difficult to wear! I think I prefer the colour you have though :)

  27. that top looks so lovely, especially for primark! and it does not make you look big one bit, if anything i'd say it's slimming! + your hair looks faboosh like this x

  28. I can tell you that Urban Outfitters do great high waisted jeans that normally fit me really well and are quite flexible, and I'd say I'm a similar size to you. They have some lovely ones in the sale! Blouse looks lovely with the leather shorts though.

    I WANT LOTSO.
