Every year I buy a new outfit for Christmas with the aim of feeling fabulous and gorgeous. Some years it is a beautiful maxi dress and some years it is more sexy, rocker mum look.

This year I am stuck.

So, hit me! What are you wearing this Christmas?

I get a new outfit each year too.

Getting a dress to match my new heels :) Probably blue, as heels are silver.

I've been struggling with this as I can't find anything I really like that I can also bf easily in :(

Going to try again tomorrow for a nice top and skirt / pants so I can just lift up the top, as no dresses I've found are accessible.

For only the 2nd time in 17 years I'm going to a restaurant / hotel for Christmas lunch and don't have to either cook the entire meal or at least a few contributory plates and do the washing up.

I don't care what I wear, lol.  I plan to eat.  Everything.  That someone else has cooked and someone else is going to clean up after.  I also plan on having all of the wine.  And champagne.  And chocolate mousse with strawberries.  And maybe a small rum.  And prawns.

I may go naked.

Or stay in my jammies.

I don't care as long as I'm not cooking, lmao!

You ladies are so organised !!

Our plan is to roll out of bed (hopefully not too early) - spend most of the morning in our PJs.

Then go to Mass (obviously getting dressed first).

Then back home - and I am thinking of getting back into my PJs then :)

I am the wrong shape for dresses - so will probably just wear a nice trouser / top (smart looking) combo for anything we do outside of the house on Christmas Day.

I was going to make a cheesy snowman bump shirt if I was delivering after Christmas but considering I will be 5 days post c-sec probably a light dress or ugly maternity shorts & a top.

A family member kindly offered to buy me a new outfit for Christmas this year and this is what I chose.


And this:


With new black and silver sandals.

Xmas morning I suspect I will be wearing the clothes I was in on Xmas Eve, having flopped into bed exhausted by wrapping every present and then assembling a trampoline in the back yard by torchlight.

I will be wearing a bathing suit/swimming costume/whatever you want to call it because...

We do the world's lowest stress Christmas on the planet!

I cannot wait to relax at the beach, with no relatives to feed. Just the sun, surf, and my immediate family.

(works well for me)

Happy dressing up to everyone who loves to dress up!

This, without the plaits and festival makeup:

Probably with some bright accessories.

This is lovely!! I wish I had the figure to wear it

I will be wearing a new black and white maxi from target. I normally wear a white/cream dress on Christmas so I am mixing it up just a little this year

we have the sickly sweet matching xmas shirts with reindeer headbands thing happening this year. we have 5 xmas parties so figure at least it will save the 'what to wear?" fuss in the morning.

Thermals, fleece, ski pants and ski jacket. Accessorised with a woolly beanie, scarf and waterproof gloves :D

HALP. I am in the market for a green full maxi skirt for Christmas day... I can't find one I like *pout*.

TO open presents my PJ's as DH is giving me a beautiful green lace dress similar to another poster's white one (from ASOS) but mine has a flare skirt and belt.  Then I plan on wearing the dress when I am given it.  No shoes and no makeup.
