Day 1129 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello, another outfit for you this week. This time from Christmas Day. We were spending it with my older sister and her brood, so we got up as usual in the morning, but with the intention of not opening all our presents (as we might not have time). My younger sister and I were pretty speedy (and Mum doesn't wrap much for me as she knows it tires me out), so we managed everything and our stockings, had a quick breakfast and off I went to get ready. Obviously I was wearing my Santa heels again-trying to get as much use out of them as I could and not pictured here is the gingerbread bag from last week, which I also took. I bought this dress in the sale over summer after ogling it last year in the winter sale (well, 2 years ago actually or maybe even 3, must remember it's 2018 now). I'm glad I didn't buy it back then, because I've had to sell all the coats and dresses I bought at the time as they are too big now. It's most definitely a wiggle dress, getting in and out of cars was tricky to say the least!  I was pretty roasty-toasty in it too. It's fully lined and the collar is removable, the fur hem isn't, but I liked it with the fur around the neck too. The neckline is quite high at the front, but lower at the back.  I had to try the outfit on again for this post, because I didn't have time on the day and isn't it always the way that when you feel nice in an outfit, you don't get photos of it?  I only managed to sneak in a couple of selfies before leaving, so I look a bit awkward in them!

Day 1128 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello and Happy New Year to you all!  I took a little break from blogging and social media over the past few weeks, because there was so much going on in the run up to Christmas that I couldn't manage it all.  As usual, it all felt a bit of a chore and rushed in the end, then my sister was sent home from work with the flu, which really threw our usual traditions and plans.  She's been really ill with it.  She's back at work now, after having to take 3 weeks off, but is struggling.  She's really weak and finding it hard to stand all day and walk the distances she used to.  I can sympathise!  Sitting on hard backed chairs for meals, wearing makeup and getting dressed and wrapping presents are all things that have hit me hard over the festive period.  They may seem like 'little' things, but a few days on, I'm still in pain from our meal on New Years Day.  All this activity though means I do have a few outfit posts for you.
