Get your elasticated trousers at the ready because tomorrow is the big day! It's the one day of year I seem to deem acceptable to continuously eat all day, even when I'm not hungry I keep soildering through because all the food looks so damn good. Then, after all the turkey, Yorkshire puds and desert, just when I think I'm about done someone pulls out the after eights and 'nibbles' and I descend right back into a food coma hell. Does anyone else do this? Or am I just extremely greedy...
Last christmas was my first christmas with Dean's parents, in a bid to 'dress to impress' I wore this Whistles number only to find out, upon arrival, that Dean's family do Christmas in comfy clothes. Gun Emoji. As you can imagine I felt like a massive uncomfortable and over dressed plum. To make matters worse it didn't take long, a 3 course dinner in fact, for me to realise said dress was not built to accomodate the Christmas dinner bloat. So yes, all in all, a very awkward day.
This year, with a little help from Pho. London, I will not be having a repeat of last years discomfort thanks to this co-ordinating set from Base Range. Fast becoming my favourite online store, Pho. London is a careful and concise edit of contemporary essentials. Stocking some of my favourite minimal brands and designers such as Marina, Base Range, Charlie May and Blake LDN. Pho. London favours the concept of choosing well, choosing items that are made to last, two ideas that I'm fast becoming a great believer in.
This Base Range set is so soft and such great quality thanks to the sustainable organic cotton used to construct the pieces. I also picked up the Bamboo Nude Triangle Bra (not one for underwear selfies so I'm still tackling how to photograph that one for the blog). So, there you have it, my Christmas Day outfit! A modern take on joggers and a jumper, complete with elastic waist so I can stuff my face. I can't bloody wait!
What will you be wearing on Christmas Day? Do you like to dress up or dress down?
