Long gone are the days when I would get all dressed up in an uncomfortable outfit, no matter what time of year it is. I well remember parties and night's out before I was more confident in my own skin, squeezed into the tightest shapewear or freezing my tush off because I just couldn't wear a jacket and cover up the skin I was so carefully letting show! Well I definitely ain't got time for that anymore, I'd much rather be comfy and enjoy my evening, so picking outfits for a party is a very different situation now.

Of course at Christmas time a bit of sparkle is a must, but this year I just wasn't thinking sequins and wanted to create a look with more texture. I was especially on the hunt for a modern textile to switch things up a little, so I was thrilled when I spotted a traditional cable knit jumper but with a futuristic looking metallic silver coating. It was an oversized style so I sized down and thankfully the interior was still nice and soft, but most importantly it was lovely and warm. Teamed with a brushed satin style skirt and a studded bag it really was a great mix of textures that I finished off with a ribbon necklace. Call me cheesy (and many have...) but I felt kinda like a present and really, what better a time of year for it.
