Sales and Outfits! | Christmas Day Dress, Boxing Day Maxi Skirt, LV Neverfull Tote Bag

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

Here's what I wore on Christmas day:
away from blue asos printed maxi dress christmas tree presents

away from the blue louis vuitton damier neverfull gold pearl diamante bracelet stack
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Dress: Asos biker print maxi dress
Shoes: Wittner 'Columbia' cross strap sandals in tan
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted gold bangle set
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Knew this dress would be perfect to wear for Christmas. I've had it an embarrassingly long time without wearing it as it was too long, but had it shortened last week so it's much more wearable now. It has a dipped hem, but unfortunately you can't see it well in the photos as Cooper sat right in front of it! The bracelets were a birthday gift which worked perfectly with the dress.

We had a wonderful Christmas day with church in the morning, lunch at the in-laws and dinner at my parents. My sister and I received a matching pair of onesies as a Christmas gift, so near the end of the day we had changed out of our dresses and were sitting around in our onesies, haha!

Last worn: Wittner sandals, Louis Vuitton neverfull bag. First time I've worn the dress on the blog.

Here's what I wore today:
Australian Summer Outfit statement necklace pink tank jersey maxi skirt

away from blue louis vuitton damier azur neverfull multi coloured bracelet stack
Sunglasses: gifted Rayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: gifted beaded statement necklace from local markets
TopJeanswest 'Jenni' basic singlet in festival fuchsia
Skirt: gifted Jeanswest plain jersey black maxi skirt
Shoes: Wittner 'Columbia' cross strap sandals in tan
Bracelets: the usual plus beaded neon and gold and black and gold bracelet set. Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle on other arm.
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

We stayed at my parent's place overnight, so we got to spend Boxing Day together today. Had the chance to wear some of my new Christmas goodies! I'd asked for bracelets for gifts and got so many nice ones that it was hard to choose what to wear first, but thought these beaded ones would go nicely with the necklace I'd packed.

Had a huge breakfast, leftovers for lunch and dinner and spent some time in the pool to cool off. It's been a busy few days for us with a bit of travel, but it's been wonderful spending time with family. Was so good to relax and spend time with everyone, as well as seeing everyone starting to use and enjoy their Christmas presents.

    29. Looking gorgeous! Hope your Christmas was very merry, and a very happy new yaer to you!

    30. Lovely maxi dress (: x you're so pretty!

    31. I have to admit that I had to google 'Boxing Day'. I really love that print maxi dress---was it a recent find from Asos? That site is so large that I feel like I can never pin down what I want in its huge inventory.


      1. I've never not heard of the 26th being called boxing day, haha!

        The dress is an old one from asos that I haven't worn in a long time as it needed altered first.

    32. Your dresses are so pretty. I especially love the pink and black one.


    33. Glad you had an awesome Boxing Day:) It's always exciting to start wearing your Christmas goodies and wondering which should you wear first!:) Lovely bracelet! Can't wait to see the rest in your future blog posts! xx
