For most years, apart from recent ones when I’m feeling blah (partly due being exhausted from all that trying), I tend to make an effort to dress up for Christmas & the New Year.
Mainly because I would usually have a few parties to hop to and there will usually be a dress code added for good fun, plus it was Bo’s & mine favourite time of the year; and I did feel it was a pretty good way of summing up an awesome year and ushering a even more fabulous one ahead – short of pampering myself and the wardrobe for having made it through another year 😉
So with a good friend’s wedding just a week before Christmas (which makes even more sense to get more miles for that dress) this year, I’ve been on a bargain hunt of late for dresses only to see myself clicking on a particular style of silhouette site after site; knowing that there is no possible way me and baby would fit into that no matter how much we tried – not that I will ever consider trading a bump to fit into a dress. Never!
Perhaps after baby’s out and for our 4th wedding anniversary in June, maybe? Dependent on whether the belly stays or goes too.
Here’s some of my faves, just in case you know, you’re shopping to dress-up too. 🙂
Love, Bonito’s Dusseldorf Dress in gorgeous fushia, not to mention at a very affordable price for style.
Rory Beca’s Jones Fishtail Wrap Gown from Shopbob . Absolutely adoring the shade of Blue Ribbon
Alice + Olivia Lauretta pleated silk-blend maxi dress from net-a-porter. In a classic colour combi no less.
