A FESTIVE STYLE BOARD

A festive Style Board | Love, Maisie
Well howdy, how festive are you feeling now it's only 21 days until Christmas?! I knew I wanted to share some festive looks on the blog this month, so I thought festive Sunday style boards would work perfectly! Now, I know that I'm 8 months pregnant and probably wouldn't be able to squeeze into this gorgeous little glittery number and my swollen feet and ankles would be pouring over the edges of these lovely little flats, but hey this is the kind of thing I would be wearing right now if I could! 

So the dress, it doesn't show up so much in this image but it's a super sparkly bodycon from Nelly. I love that it's a turtle neck and has long sleeves too, in theory it'll keep you pretty warm once you're inside and need to take your jacket off! I think this would be great for the festive season purely for how sparkly it is! Available online now for £22.95

Speaking of jackets, how insane is this fluffy faux fur jacket from Hollister! I thought it was pretty cost friendly for what it is, coming in at £65, it's also cruelty free, winning! There's just something so festive about a white fluffy jacket isn't there? There are so many alternatives available and I'm sure Primark probably have some sort of dupe in store at the moment too!

For shoes, I thought I'd play it safe with flats because a, everyone always takes off their heels anyway and b, these are just so cute! You can find them in Oasis-Stores and they're actually called Twinkle Toes Flats, how adorable is that? I think you'd get great wear out of these little babies as you could use them to jazz up a simple jeans and a top kinda look too, don't you think?!

Now, to accessorise, I knew I could keep it fairly simple as the shoes are pretty in your face and seeing as the dress has a turtle neck, I think a necklace would have been a bit over kill. I decided on this gorgeous gold cuff  from Charlotte Russe and yes, it's pretty dramatic, but I really like it! You can get yourself one right here for just under a fiver!

I think everyone needs a gold, sparkly clutch bag in their collection, so that they can whack it out to all the Christmas parties, don't you agree?! Maybe this clutch is in fact a little over kill, but I thought it added an extra bit of jazz to this already super sparkly outfit! Currently available online from Macy's for £37, down from £50! 

Of course, this time of year, you've got to rock a red lip haven't you! This bold red that I've used for today's post is Lime Crime's Red Velvet Velvetine Liquid Lipstick, how gorgeous of a shade is it?! I think a bold, matte red lip looks super sophisticated and really adds an extra touch to your whole look! Along with a super glittery eye, I've teamed it up with this Nars limited edited eyeshadow in the shade Stud, which is part of their hardwired collection! I'm sure you've all got at least one red lippie and a sparkly shadow or two in your collection, so achieving a similar look would be super easy!

So there we have it, a festive style board! What do you think of this look? Would you rock it to your work's Christmas do? Or are you not as much of a fan as I am? Let me know below! Don't forget, I'm doing vlogmas this year, make sure you're subscribed here so that you don't miss an upload!

  1. I am stressing out so much about what to wear to my Christmas parties - I want to look cute and sparkly but I don't think that'll be acceptable for work... this outfit, however, is perfect! I'm in love with those glittery shoes and although I've been holding myself back from buying more shoes, surely one more pair won't hurt right?
