Create a Christmas wishlist for under £100, and you could win it all. That was the challenge from M&Co – here is the entry!
I’ve had my eye on their beautiful blue toned floral full-midi skirt for sometime (it’s totally retro, totally Bombshells, right?), so it had to be on there. I decided then to create an outfit around this key piece, making my All I Want For Christmas, Christmas Wishlist, more of an All I Want To Wear At Christmas, Christmas Day outfit wishlist.
I love getting dressed up on Christmas Day – it’s one of the best bits about it for fashion fans, agreed? So, with this lovely skirt at the heart of my wishlist, I thought about the rest of the outfit – and had a Frozen moment. That film is everywhere this year. AND I’VE NEVER SEEN IT!! I don’t have kids, I guess that’s why. But my Facebook is full of the cutest pics of my friends kids dressed up in their Elsa and Anna outfits.
I know that Elsa is the one in the blue dress – the one who can control the ice and snow, so I took my inspiration from her. With my lovely Blue prom-style skirt, I’ve chosen a gorgeous silky silver cami top, with beautiful embellished straps.
Clockwise, from top left: Sequin kimono top, £30, Blue floral prom-style skirt, £22, silver embellished handbag, £17.50, sequin strap cami top, £20, embellished pumps, £10, all at M&Co
Over the top, I’ve upped the bling (or frozen) factor, with a sequinned kimono. Layering on Christmas Day is essential – I know how hot it can get in the in-laws home, and I don’t want to overheat – so not Frozen! This lovely cami and kimono combo is so versatile as well – team with jeans or trousers – whole other outfit.
Flat shoes are just comfier and easier to wear in the house, particularly if you are hosting Christmas, so I decided to add this gorgeous pastel peachy pair, with those ‘Frozen’ bling embellishments again to my Christmas wishlist.
And finally, the silver embellished clutch. Is there anything more ice-queen than this adorable diamante trimmed silver box clutch bag, which brings my total to £99.50! I love it. Am pretty sure Elsa would as well. Now all we need is some snow…
Whilst I am in the Christmas mood, creating my Christmas wishlist, I thought I’d take this moment to say Merry Christmas Bombshells, and share my favourite image of Ava Gardner looking beautifully festive!
Merry Christmas everyone!
