Festive Fun

This year we are doing Christmas a little differently. We're spending the days before and after with our families and filling up on food, family, friends and gifts but, on the day itself, we have more grown up plans in mind.

For Christmas Day we have booked ourselves into what has to be our absolute favourite hotel in Melbourne - Crown Metropol . Part of the Crown Casino family, this hotel is modern and sleek and has been our go-to place for romantic nights away, celebrations and more. As a little treat for the crazy year that's past by so very fast, we booked both a night away and an amazing Christmas lunch at our favourite restaurant located in the heart of Crown.

So for a full day of food and wine, I need the right outfit to fit both the festive feel and comfortable enough to take me from Christmas lunch to a spot of black jack and roulette in the evening. I must admit I dabble a little at poker and even online casino games when chilling out at home and have a solitaire addiction so lets see if I make my day a little more festive. All On Red!!

It may be a little over a month until the day, but my outfit is sorted and I can't wait for Christmas day to hit so I can rock it all day long.

Inspired Insanity Red Short Sleeve Crop Cardigan Bolero - $27.95
Deck the Halls Brooch from Erstwilder
Christmas Candy Hair Clip from Gigi's Retro Closet - $19.00

My third Renee Dress from Pinup Girl Clothing and this was specifically purchased Xmas celebrations. The adorable red cardigan pairs perfectly with the red of the Renee Dress and gives me just the right amount of arm coverage. 

Then it's time for accessories! When Erstwilder released this stunning Christmas wreath it was the one thing that started my outfit idea. These bright pop of green will look amazing paired with the red bolero. Then hidden within a large mess of curls I'll be wearing this stunningly sweet clip from Gigi's retro closet. 

I can't forget shoes!! So I did not over do it with the 'Red' theme I've chosen at super sweet shoe from my go to shoe shop Shoe Me Gorgeous! The Funtasma DAINTY-420 Green Satin Women's Shoes - $110 fits perfectly with the theme and outfit and I'll wear these with so many more outfits all rear round. These are also the perfect height to wear all day long. 

Remember that feeling we all got when we were little? When you just wanted to go to sleep asap so you'd wake up and it would be Christmas morning? I'm feeling that right now! Hurry up Santa!
