I LOVE CHRISTMAS! It’s definitely my favourite holiday, I love the lights and decorations, getting together with family and friends and I even love Christmas songs!
This will be my first Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere which makes me extra excited. Back home in New Zealand, it’s summer (well, some years not so much!) so much different to what’s universally considered to be a traditional Christmas. Instead of snow, hot roasts, mulled wine and hideously adorable sweaters, we have barbecues, head to the beach and some families even go camping over the Christmas break.
We will actually be in Dublin at my Mum’s place for Christmas day itself but I’ll be trying to see and do as much London Festivities as possible in December. I can’t wait to try some egg-nog, go ice-skating at Hampton Court Palace and visit Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.
I’m ridiculously excited about the prospect of being able to wear kitchy Christmas things that are actually seasonally appropriate, and so for the next couple of weeks, I’m going to be sharing some of my favourite Christmas items for those of you who want to dress up in the spirit of the season!
First up, I’m starting small with accessories as one can’t overlook the importance of adding some extra detail to your outfit. It’s also a cheaper way to adding that festive flair to your existing wardrobe. And regarding Coco Chanel’s mantra of taking one accessory off before leaving the house in case of ‘over-doing it’… I personally feel that you really can’t over-do Christmas!
Now, bear in mind that you don’t have to have Rudolf hanging from your ears to look festive. My Christmas style involves lots of glitter and sparkles so you’ll be seeing a lot of that over these upcoming posts!
