Printed Dresses and Red Saddle Bag

For my last blog post until after Christmas day, two pretty printed dresses with my little red Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag, that's gotten a lot of wear recently. It's a little nod to the Christmas season!

What I wore:

Earrings: Colette Ciao Bella glitter ball drop earrings
Dress: Kmart red flora printed wrap dress
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red

Why I wore it:

This is what I wore for our annual family Christmas photo. I try get one to put in our Christmas cards every year, although finding somewhere that accepts dogs every year isn't easy. We can't leave Cooper out of the family photo though!

Went with this pretty dress that I wore for a belated Christmas celebration at the in-laws last year. It feels festive, with the bright coral floral print. It's not the first time I've worn these gold bauble earrings or the nude gladiator sandals with this dress, they are great accessories with it.

It's the first time I've worn this little red saddle bag with the dress though - I was worried about the coral print and the red of the bag not looking good together, but I really liked the combination and I'm glad I gave it a try.

Last worn: coral floral wrap dress, gold bauble earrings, studded gladiator sandals, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag.

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Saddle Bag

What I wore:

Earrings: Kmart gold circle glitter resin statement earrings
Necklace: personalised gold children's names charm necklace
DressJaase Celine autumn leaves mini dress
ShoesSketchers Bountiful navy fabric sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus Polka Luka resin bangles in red and teal
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red

Why I wore it:

I wore this back at the end of November, to go down the coast and finish off my Christmas shopping. Just like the family Christmas photo above, it's an annual tradition! My mum and sister and I hit the shops for a full day of shopping to finish buying all our presents. It was a very productive day, we were there at the shops until we heard the closing messages again, and I got a lot of presents bought!

As I knew it would be a long day with a lot of walking and some driving, wore my comfortable Sketchers to support my knee. With the resin bracelet stack, the gold glitter earrings and the little red bag, this felt a bit Christmas-y, without being too festive as it was still November. I really liked this outfit! The red saddle bag looks so good with the autumn leaves print of the dress.

Last worn: resin glitter earrings, engraved gold necklace, resin bracelets, Jaase Celine dress, Sketchers, Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag (above).

Other ways to wearJaase Celine dress and denim jacket, Sketchers and shorts, Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag and maxi skirt.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones.
