Do you have something new or special planned or just the same old, same old?
This year I'm a guest (thanks SIL ) so won't be dying a slow, hot death in the kitchen all day and therefore I'll be donning the below.
There's no reason I can't get nicely dressed when I'm hosting, it's just that I run out of time to get changed before everyone gets here and I'm usually in cut off shorts and t-shirt all day.

That dress is gorgeous and I don't have the money spare to buy one
I'll either be wearing a pair of daggy shorts and breastfeeding top or a dress I bought at a Millers clearance outlet, because it's the only one I've got left that still fits, is breastfeeding friendly and is not stinking hot to wear. Depends on the weather, if it's rainy it'll be the shorts and shirt.

I have a Woodford & Co silk dress which is pretty festive, I wore it last weekend when we hosted a christmas get together for my dad's family, and I'll wear it again on Christmas day. Nice and cool and lots of room for a food baby or two.

I will be wearing a bathing suit & sunscreen & Havaianas, as we always spend Christmas Day at the beach!

I'm wearing this dress with my swimmers underneath because I plan to spend the majority of the day in the pool!!!

Same as BMJ & Koufuku bathers, rashie top and boardies. Though won't be going to the beach, I plan on laying at the bottom of the kids waterslide/jumpy castle. Will be close to 40 degrees

I'm wearing an emerald green shift dress with a big flat bow across the chest. But probably only briefly as I intend to spend most of the day in the pool.
