The good news is that, despite the crazy weather, we are able to attend my husband’s work Christmas party on Saturday night. It looked really uncertain all day; with constant periods of sunshine followed by showers so I sure was happy once the rain decided to hold off for the evening. We had the best night; the highlights were the spectacular views and the unlimited free alcohol! I had a lot of trouble deciding what to wear. Although I have a number of pretty dresses, I tend to use them more as my everyday/ work wear. I like to feel as though I’m dressing up beyond that level when I have a special night out and I don’t have many formal/cocktail dresses (just my logic of overdressing). In the end this logic completely went out the window and I chose yet another floral fit and flare Review dress. Oh well! I was happy with my choice (and for once I dressed sensibly and wasn’t freezing cold all night on the boat) and I chose to maximise the accessories and sparkle in my outfit instead. Unfortunately the pictures don’t show them well but I decided to wear my wedding shoes. I’ve only worn them a few times but I just love getting additional use out of them beyond just their wedding purpose; it also adds a bit of glamour for a night time look. I also posted them here and here. While on the topic of sequins, I love to wear this cardigan and I think it adds so much to a look. I’ve had so much use out of it in the last year(I even couldn’t resist the temptation to wear it to work today; since when has the prospect of looking a little out of place in a staff meeting bothered me?). It sparkles so much in real life. I adore how the three types of sequins form a beautiful arrangement. The buttons are equally lovely. I’m pretty obsessed with flower crowns right now too.
