Indulging my magpie tendencies...

I have never been one to shy away from embellishment or jazzy items of clothing but Christmas does tend to bring out my inner magpie and it usually encourages others to dress up too. Although I love how cool minimalism is, I could never give up all of the fun sparkly things in my wardrobe! This disco skirt is a firm favourite of mine and I'm always looking for ways to incorporate it into my daily wardrobe. Jazzy skirts and  jumpers are the ideal combination at this time of year. It is fairly chilly outside but our office is always boiling so I need thin layers rather than chunky knits and this ticks all the boxes... I have my Christmas outfits all planned and I imagine this one will be featuring at some point- perhaps on Christmas Eve when Mark and I celebrate Christmas? 


This isn't the best picture but it shows the gorgeous embellished shoulders on this Tesco jumper. I picked it up in the sale a couple of months ago and have been saving it up ever since. The gems are a green-y silver colour and are surprisingly non-tacky in person (which I am kind of sad about haha!) A black jumper is a classic in anyone's wardrobe and embellishment makes it a super fun one at that...


Even my nails are getting in on the festive action! This Max Factor Angel Nails varnish is one of my favourites and although it is a shimmery pale gold, it picks up whatever colour it is next to. It looks massively silver here but looked bronze next to my gold sparkly outfit that I wore the next day. I hate having to paint my nails so a colour this versatile is sure to be a winner... 


I have said it before but I love how shiny this skirt is! The mini pleats are super flattering and although the colour echoes Bacofoil, I don't even mind, this is a colour that will flatter anyone and everyone!


Are you a magpie or a minimalist?

I laughed out loud at the mention of Bacofoil - I never would have thought had you not mentioned it! Haha. Every girl needs a shimmery/sequined skirt. I have a black sequined flirty skirt which I'm dying to wear over the next week.

Merry Christmas!

So much love for this look. I really love the shoulder embellishment too.
