One of my favourite things about the festive season is how often family and friends get together in celebration, and you know me by now, any excuse to get dressed up is a good excuse. With Christmas fast approaching I know getting dressed up and the joy of getting ready are right around the corner and I couldn't be any happier about it!
A touch of red is a necessity at Christmas time, whether it be a piece of clothing or a beauty item; I went all out and opted for a gorgeous red pleated midi dress which is just stunning - albeit a bit more revealing than I usually go for - I couldn't resist the stunning fit and colour. A red dress usually means a more neutral makeup look so I kept my makeup very minimal with a nude lip cream as my finishing touch.
To complete the look I added my beloved hoop earrings, I don't think I'm ever without them, and a stunning timepiece from Cartier, gifted to me for the weekend by The Watch Gallery (if only it were mine forever!) These are two accessories I simply cannot live without, a watch and hoops, both of which really complete an outfit regardless of whether it's a formal affair or simply casual wear. In this case, a Cartier watch couldn't be any more perfect - adding that finishing touch of luxury this Christmas.
