You´ll know it´s Christmas season when you´ll see blooming poinsettias around you.
Trivia: The tradition of including the plant during Christmas celebrations started in the 16th century in Mexico where this plant originally comes from. Do you know that the red part isn´t the flower but the leaves? It takes 12 hours in the dark for the leaves to turn red and for a more vibrant red, sunlight is needed. ;)
I was planning on buying cyclamen as a plant ornament for Christmas but I just can´t resist a small potted poinsettia. But... the cyclamen would be much chicer to look at. hahaha!
Anyway, here´s what I´m planning to wear at a mini- Christmas party with the girlfriends. We´re just simple gals and so no glittery party dresses needed for that special occasion. :)
What is more important is that the getup shouldn´t too tight to hold in the tummy for the food bingeing happening later that night. hehe
When I saw this gingham skirt in black and white, I knew I had to have it not only because the fit´s perfect but because it´s 50% off. Who could turn away from a nice fitting skirt at a discounted price?
I´d be wearing this with a colored floral cuff :
But just for the show, I´ve also included some gold bangles in the photo:
The perfect color to combine with black and white is red. This turtleneck top isn´t my best choice but I don´t want to spend anything anymore because the winter sales is around the corner. Time to zip the wallet close for now. ;)
The shoes should be comfy because there´ll be lots of dancing. For now I´m wearing opaque tights but that could change to a thicker pair if it´ll snow next week. I hope it doesn´t because Mr. Frost´s in town for days now, if it drizzles I´m sure it´s gonna be snow and not rain.
So this is gonna be my what I wore soon. ;)
So what about you? Are your outfits ready for Christmas partying with friends?
Have a lovely Sunday all!
