Christmas day: champagne and tulle

On Christmas day this year, we really wanted to go out for dinner. It was in an old manor (below) and the occasion called for some fine dressing, for fine dining. I went with my boyfriend and his lovely mother (Liz), who I’m photographed with below:

We each had silly hats on as we ate (it is Christmas!) and this is my lovely boyfriend modelling his:

There was also bubbles aplenty:

And the most gorgeous ginger bread house:


The Christmas Day outfit:

So as you guys advised, I went with the Topshop dress. I did feel a bit over the top, but LOVED it in the end…


Shoes: Miss Selfridge ( a few years old)

I will do another post about presents, can’t wait to share it with you. Thanks again for helping me to decide my dress!

 I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas?
