Christmas is full of traditions, some I subscribe to but most I don’t. Over the years we have created our own Christmas Day traditions, like trifle for breakfast, clinkers and a milo, a colourful tree, a stroll on the beach and a Hi 5 cd blaring carols to wake the family…even though the boys are now 18 and 21. Another tradition that harks back to childhood is a new dress for Christmas Day. A stylish Christmas day tradition 🙂
You know the kind, usually white with touches of red or green (sorry to my red/green colourblind Huz), teamed with fresh hair and a summer glow. Come at me Christmas!
I’m not talking a ‘theme’ dress that could have me being mistaken for Mrs Claus and there’s no novelty earrings…totally cool with you doing it if makes you feel merry and bright. It’s more about having a special fresh new dress to celebrate the big day, kinda like a present to myself.
The festive shopping season sees me gifting far too many ‘presents to myself’, I’m a sucker for the fancy packaging and gift sets. I mean, did I actually need four new lip glosses? Probably not, but look at this packaging (and the price was ace too).
From time to time the team at Adrift offer for me to choose a few pieces from their range (thanks team) and when I spied this *Bombay maxi dress I just knew it would be perfect for Christmas Day. I immediately saw myself in this dress dancing to carols, strolling barefoot on the beach, tucking into a BBQ lunch and then curling up on the couch late afternoon with a movie and a full belly.
The white is fresh and summery, it’s floaty and cool to wear and the beaded trim is a nice nod to the festive season. Best of all, I don’t even need to iron it✔️ This dress is available in sizes 8-18
Tell me, do you buy a new dress for Christmas Day? What are your Christmas traditions?
Til next time,
