Blogmas Day 5: 12 Days of Outfits – Day 2
Finally, I have managed to settle down and write another post for my ’12 days of outfits’ series. I’ve really been trying to keep on top of the posts, and I set out with the goal to post once a day for blogmas. However, it is harder than expected (I should have learnt from last year!).
This dress, although not a Christmas colour, is pretty close!
It’s a gorgeous bright pink shade that just makes me feel so happy, beautiful and bold.
If you saw my Instagram post on this, you would know that I made it myself. I actually made it about 6 years ago, it was pretty easy to make. I love this dress because of the pockets. It is my firm belief that more women’s clothes need pockets. This dress is from a re-released vintage pattern – it’s a 1960s mod-dress! It’s really comfortable.
What’s the point of making clothes that don’t have pockets, and then embroidering, or creating a design of a pocket…which isn’t actually a pocket. Clearly, this is an issue I feel strongly about!
Pockets just make my life easier. When I go for a walk, or if I’m going out somewhere, I like being able to put my phone in my pocket. So I don’t have to carry a bag.
Back to the dress. This time of year is my favourite – I love how bright, happy and sparkling everything is. It’s a really beautiful time of year, the sun is out and it is getting warmer. Christmas time in Summer is really lovely. People outdoors, barbeques, swimming. It’s just a really relaxing time. I feel like my fashion sense at this time of the year is just so much happier! After spending a Winter wrapped up, I like being able to wear these bright, bold colours!

I just got them from Lotta from Stockholm.
I hope everyone is having a wonderfully lovely lead up to Christmas.
Does anyone else have outfits and clothes they LOVE to wear at this time of year?
p.s. I still haven’t got my Christmas tree up.
