Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas with family and friends!

I enjoyed taking a couple of days away from the computer and spending time with my family. Sharing a couple of photos a day doesn't take long but it was nice to stay away from the computer for a while. Thought I'd try do one post to catchup for the missed blog posts. It's a long one, sorry.

Here's what I wore on Christmas Eve (I'm in the middle):
Tee: gifted festive glitter Santa tee
Bracelets: the usual plus two metal and fabric Indigo Rose Design bracelets, gifted Christmas bow bracelet (with bells!)
ShortsJeanswest denim cuff shorts
ShoesNine West silver strap sandals (not worn in photo)
BagBalenciaga flat clutch GSH in 2010 Sang

Completely forgot to take a solo picture, so sharing this instagram photo of my outfit instead with my mum, sister and Cooper.

My sister bought us all these fun t-shirts to wear on Christmas eve. I thought it was a great idea, and made me feel very festive as we visited family and baked Christmas cookies. I suspect I'll be wearing the tee again next year! The bracelet had little bells inside so my sister and I jingled everywhere we went :)

The shorts were last worn here, shoes here and clutch here. It's the first time I've worn the tee.

On Christmas day, this is what I wore:
Sunnies: gifted Cotton On 'Kirsten sunnie' in sky blue
Earrings: gifited vintage Chanel dangling camellia charm earrings (better pic here)
NecklaceHouse of Harlow silver and grey leather sunburst necklace

Gifted faux pearl and silver chain bracelet on other wrist.

Love the photo of Cooper taking a massive yawn, had to share that one with you all :) Almost looks like he is singing carols!

On Christmas day we went to church, opened presents, had an extremely delicious meal, visited both of our families and ended the day with a relaxing swim in the pool before we had guests around. It was a really busy but family-filled day, it was so nice. The food was lovely and the company even better.

Had a bit of a giggle with my sister when we realised we had both worn blue sunnies, maxi dresses and Balenciaga clutches. We have very similar taste :)

The shoes were last worn here and clutch here. It's the first time I've worn the dress and sunnies, both of which were birthday presents. A lot of my bracelet stack was made up of Christmas gifts.

Here's what I wore today on Boxing day:
Sunnies: gifted Cotton On 'Risky Business' sunglasses in sky blue
NecklaceChanel necklace from Reebonz
Bracelets: the usual plus Lovisa 'Collette by Collette Dinnigan' twisted bow charm bracelet in silverLovisa 'Collette by Collette Dinnigan' heart charm bracelet in silver.

ShortsJeanswest denim cuff shorts
Shoes: gifted Havaianas slim tropical print
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in Aquamarine

We had a much more relaxed Boxing day after our busy Christmas day. Didn't do very much at all, watched some DVDs we got for Christmas, went on a long walk with Cooper and ate plenty of Christmas cookies!

The shorts were last worn here, thongs here and bag here. This is the first time I've worn this tee as it was a Christmas present.

    1. Loved your Christmas recap :) Cooper is very patient and lets me dress him up sometimes, although the antlers did keep falling off so he only made an entrance in them everywhere we went, and then we had to spend some time hunting for where he dropped them...haha!
