I sometimes worry my wishlist posts are rather boring because they mostly seem to contain items straight from the high street rather than featuring cool little boutiques with unique offerings from the pokiest corners of the internet. But to tell you the truth, I just love the high street at Christmas time. Everything seems to play into my adoration for dark and jewel-toned colours, amazing textures and beautifully ornate dresses that aren't ever really practical at any other time of year, but that I lust over nonetheless. These are just some items that I've seen on my travels, fallen in love with and mentally added to my Christmas list. I'm thinking that I want at least one of these outfits to wear over Christmas and new year, but I'm stuck deciding which I like best! Let me know what you think...
Lately I've been feeling incredibly tempted to buy a Crown and Glory flower crown - Christmas seems like the perfect time of year to get away with accessories that really make a statement, and I really like this cream-coloured beauty. I keep dreaming up perfect outfits it would go with and it only felt right to make a wishlist post...
I'm seriously tempted by this Topshop dress and think it would be so perfect styled with an oversized cardi and flower crown, with chunky boots for a bit of a vintage vibe.
Pastel colours and soft textures teamed with blacks and metallics are all I want this party season and this is a prime example of that. I totally blame Sophie from Stitches of Style for making me fall in love with this skirt!
I need to stop putting this jumper in wishlist posts but it's just so perfect and would go with anything! This scarlet off-shoulder dress from Miss Selfridge is amazing as a party piece in it's own right, but I can just imagine it layered with a fluffy jumper and rose gold jewellery for around the house on Christmas day.
And as for New Years (we're having a party and getting overly dressed up - everyone's already planning their outfits!) I'm super tempted to buy my first ever all-out sequinned piece. I think it would be stunning teamed with this Topshop bralet and velvet heels - besides, all-black outfits are truly my favourite. Both of these outfits would look so sweet mixed and matched with these New Look hair bows, too.
I'm determined to spend a little on a nice seasonal outfit this year, and to save myself from the eternal panic that I always seem to get on New Year's Eve when I suddenly end up hating all of my clothes! It happens every year without fail and I really don't want it to happen again... but I need help deciding which to go for, so please leave a comment below and let me know what you think! What are you planning to wear for the holidays this year?
