Have some fun with your outfits for the lead up to Christmas. There is time now to plan those big nights out, and days with friends where you want to look effortless, and cool – but you don’t want to spend the big bucks!
I found a couple of winners from Marks and Spencer for a few different occasions I have coming up. And the best thing? You can mix and match.
The printed mesh sleeve flare sleeved midi dress, I fell in love with when I spotted it online. It’s super classy albeit your arms and legs are mostly covered but the mesh makes it pretty and the pattern makes it edgy. And for $87 it’s a beautiful buy for a Christmas party, or special dinner.
If you need to update your heels, how’s these for glittery cool? Two part block heel sparkle. Yes please. And only $52!
And a nice, clean strap at the front so you could wear them over and over.
And as for the bag. I can hear your squeals of delight. I think we should all own one.
Would you believe this faux leather (who would know?) embellished bag is only $62! Unfortunately this one sold out in record time, but you can buy some similar styles here.
Changing up and dressing it down now.
The Marks and Spencer Floral print long sleeve swing dress is a piece you can wear from day into night. I’ve styled it with sneakers but don’t be swayed by that. You could easily team with a pair of wedges (tan or nude would work well).
And for $35 you can do no wrong!
Price – $35 – Buy Now!
And then if you really want to go casual on a summer’s day, why not team with sandals. I picked these leather asymmetric ones up for $35.
If the afternoons cool off a bit, you can still stay in the festive theme with this Star Embellished Novel Jumper for $52. Stars are always a good idea, and they’re fun without being overly mumsy. Bonus!
If you wanted to make the style a bit more preppy, add a white, crisp collared shirt underneath.
I bought the vibe down a notch by marrying the knit with a basic denim skirt. I purchased mine in a size S, so I could tuck into high waisted skirts and jeans so go bigger if you want it more slouchy.
