All that’s golden, is never real

Well that is Christmas over for another year, our tree and decorations came down on Sunday and the flat seems somewhat bare!  Although I was at work between Christmas and New Year I am having to get properly back into the swing of things this week.We had such a good festive time and my favourite thing about Crimbo is getting to spend time with family.  We spent Christmas eve with my Dad, stepmum and wee brother and sister watching ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’.  Christmas isn’t Christmas without a bit of George Bailey!  Christmas dinner was with my Mum, stepdad, siblings and my niece, we then spent night time with the boy’s family.
I am sort of glad to get back into a routine now, I was starting to get pretty sluggish from the vast amount of bread, cheese, pate and chocolate that made up almost every meal for over a week.
Before the tree was taken down I got some photos of my favourite outfit from the festive season.
My gorgeous Fay and Solas skirt got it’s debut for my work party night, it has just the right amount of sparkle and was perfect for a Christmas night out.

I wanted the skirt to be the main focus of my outfit so I kept the rest fairly simple, going for black and gold.

I dug out these amazing Irregular Choice shoes to wear.  These were my first ever pair of Irregular Choice shoes, I got them about 6 years ago!  Since Irregular Choice never seem to follow what is on trend the shoes still look great years and seasons later.

Skirt – Fay and Solas
Cami top – Primark
Shoes – Irregular Choice (old)
Necklace – Primark
Watch – Next (old – one similar here)

I hope everyone had a great time over the holidays.  For those of you who started back at work on Monday hopefully it has not been too painful!

      Thanks Lyn! I got my hair cut at Blow in December and the guy made such an awesome job of my fringe, totally worth the trek to Finneston for!
