Christmas Traditions + Festive Style with White Stuff

Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year for so many reasons. We have lots of traditions that stem from my childhood, and have introduced new ones over recent years too. We always get our Christmas tree on the first of December and we add to our ornament collection by picking out a new one each every year. We make a big deal out of writing our Christmas cards, all sat round the table together listening to festive music (and I'll often have my first mulled wine of the season!). We go to the annual light switch on in town and buy gifts at the Christmas market. Then Christmas Day is always a big, chaotic, noisy, amazing, family affair! I pretty much love the whole month of December; I love getting to spend quality time with family and friends, I love decorating the house, I love eating delicious food and I LOVE an excuse to get dressed up!

We always make an effort with our Christmas Day attire; it's a special day, spent with special people, centred around a special meal and I think it's only fitting that we each wear a special outfit. Not only do the elves bring the girls new pyjamas every Christmas Eve, Father Christmas brings them pretty dresses on Christmas morning too!

Another annual tradition is a festive day out in London, and this year was no different. Last weekend we went to the Royal Opera House to see The Nutcracker, before ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the Christmas lights in and around Covent Garden, and then heading over to the Big Easy for a lobster dinner!

I wore this gorgeous Tiny Treasure tunic in decadent green which had been sent to me by White Stuff as part of their Christmas 2015 campaign.

I wore my tunic with leggings, clogs and a biker jacket and thought it was a pretty perfect outfit for a relaxed day wandering around London. I've never worn peep toe clogs in December before, but this year has been unseasonably warm so I decided to go for it! ;) I find clogs super comfy, so they are the perfect shoe for when you want to wear a heel but have a lot of walking lined up. I love, love, LOVE the White Stuff tunic; it's smart enough for a matinee at the Royal Opera House, but can be dressed down with a biker jacket - which is the look I went for for the rest of our day! The tunic is loose fitting with short sleeves that are slightly longer than usual and it has a folded round collar which is a detail I love. The floral print is beautiful - pretty but very modern - and the green colour truly is decadent!

Speaking of decadent, that's the only word that can be used to describe our meal at the Big Easy. Lobster mac + cheese, triple cooked chips, salad and a cold, crisp beer went down a treat after a busy day in town ;)

Thanks to White Stuff for asking us to be a part of this campaign!
