Dear reader, last week I was quite stunned when a colleague told me that I looked lovely and 'Christmasy'. I looked at my clothes to check that I hadn't had tinsel wrapped around me. No. Nor any ribbon, bows nor cracker hats upon my head. I was not wearing red. I was flummoxed.
I queried my colleague who just affirmed that it was a wintry Christmasy look.
This is what I was wearing.
A cream and black lace patterned blouse, a grey cardigan, a cream cord necklace with gold pendant. A black skirt and ankle boots, opaque hose.
I'm still flummoxed but if you want to look festive but avoid red then maybe this is a combination to aim for. I think it's more the grey, cream and gold that gave the appearance of 'Christmas ' rather than my black skirt.
