Office Party Outfit Meltdown

The office Christmas party always presents me with an outfit dilemma. I never really left my teenage grunge look behind and always air on the side of casual when I go out with my friends, so when I’m faced with ‘looking fancy’ in the company of my colleagues, I break out in a cold sweat! Do I go glam? Sophisticated? Smart? Do I (god forbid) wear heels?

At least I’m fortunate enough to have a wide variety of cool tights to choose from!

This year I went for the Alice + Olivia swirl tights (Glam), A black velvet dress (Sophisticated) and some black patent brogues (Smart. I may have chickened out on heels but at least I was able to pull some serious moves on the dance floor!

    

Happy Christmas everyone!!

Cecelia Allen:

"I love to hear choirs and the carols they sing,
Midnight Mass when the church bells ring,
Watching the Children's Nativity play,
Retelling the tale of that first Christmas Day,
I love Christmas with magical lights,
Tinsel that sparkles on cold frosty nights,
Wrapping the presents and dressing the tree,
Christmas cake, pudding and roasted turkey,
Having fun with family and friends,
I'm always sad when Christmas time ends
"

Charlotte Ingram:

"Sliding down mountains of snow,Gives my cheeks a rosy glow,
Then home to warm up by the fire,

With all the mince pies I desire,
A glass of wine and a present or two,
I love Christmas and I know you do too."

Christmas Time, Mistletoe & Wine...

Christmas Markets are full of the true magic of Christmas.
Christmas music, groups of friends and family, mulled wine, food and entertainment.
It is safe to say that the Lincoln Christmas Market certainly did not let us down!

As soon as we stepped off the train there was live music from a young band instantly putting you in the Christmas frame of mind, not that we needed it dressed in our Christmas jumpers - and me obviously wrapped up in the Fleecy's!

Initially feeling overwhelmed by the mass of bodies and understanding how a sheep must feel being herded around, we finally got into the swing of things and managed to block out the waves of people and adopt a slow pace meandering through!

The stalls were full of excitment and people stretching and jumping to see what was on offer; baubles made of cheese, bubbles made of gas, locally sourced food and a warm beverages to thore your fingers out. Three hours and a few mulled wine's later we had finished!

Perfect pre Christmas day out!
