Putting the Magic Back into Christmas

I love Christmas, always have and always will. I am sure you can tell with the snowflakes going on here. My kids are sick of listening to my Christmas carols on Spotify because I have been playing them since November. Yea I am crazy about Christmas like that. I use to love Christmas as a child, it was one of my favourite times in the year and it still is. I want my kids to love Christmas like that. There is so much to be thankful for.

Christmas is one of those seasons I just want to sit back, forget about work and all the troubles in life, and just enjoy the festive season with my loved ones. But I must confess, the best part of Christmas, is the counting down to the day. The build up is filled with decorations, Christmas gifts shopping (catch up on my Christmas gift idea posts if you missed them), the carols and the whole fuss.

This year will be a very different kind of Christmas and I can’t wait. I am putting the magic back into Christmas with a proper holiday in an amazing sunny location. I will be going on a proper holiday, the first proper holiday outside the EU since 2012, and I am really looking forward to it. I won’t be blogging as often as I regularly blog (which is daily), I will be taking time off blogging and social media to unwind and get ready for the new year. I am not too sure how many days I would take off blogging or how active/inactive I will be on social media yet. I am still planning my schedule and blog content for the rest of the year, so I will keep you all updated. But it looks like I will have my last post up on the 22nd, and drop in briefly after Christmas with a post or 2, then resume as normal after New Year.

I have not really taken time off the blog in a very long time so I am eagerly looking forward to this time off. God knows I need it so badly.

OOTD: The Oversized Jumper

NEW OOTD Post

Anything oversized is so in vogue this season. BIG is indeed BEAUTIFUL, and the oversized jumper is a beautiful way to get stylish during winter. The easiest way to rock this look successfully is to pair pieces in contrasting volume and colours, go a size up if needed, and look comfortable in it, and why shouldn’t you look comfortable rocking this, it is the coziest look ever!

NEW FSP OOTD

There is a thin line between looking chic and sloppy so best to dress the oversized jumper or sweater with a well fitted skirt or leggings/skinnies to achieve the stylish look.

H&M Jumper OOTD

H&M Jumper Post

With this look, the accessories came out to play. I had on a cute pink Radley Ladies watch by House of Watches, and this gorgeous fashion timepiece is one of the cutest designs I have ever seen. The vibrant red finish complements the gold detailing beautifully, and the cute Radley dog charm finishes it off beautifully. I am so in love with this watch. It would make a perfect Christmas gift.

H&M Outfit Post

Another beautiful accessory I want to bring your attention to, is this Sparkly Large Clear Blue Crystal Marquise Stud Earrings from Hazel + Kent. It is the prettiest piece of jewellery ever and I love the sparkle. I am going to be wearing this beauty on Christmas Day.

Michael Kors Sneakers

I cannot talk about the accessories I have on, and not mention this gorgeous Gold Low Top Trainers by Michael Kors. I bought this beauty some months ago, and I have been patiently waiting for the right outfit to pair it with, and the day finally came. I love the ‘over the topness’ of it. It is definitely my coolest new footwear for 2015.

OOTD: The Christmas Long Sleeve Top

Christmas Outfit

We had some lovely weather in Cheshire over the weekend, before it became painfully cold, so I made good use of the sunshine and got some outfit pictures taken. I received this Christmassy red long sleeve ski top by Jolly Clothing, a Christmas retro-styled independent fashion label based in Wales. This ‘made in the UK’ label was launched in 2012, every piece is designed and printed in the UK, and it sells around the world. Have a look at their site for Christmas gifts for all ages, you are sure to find something you like, and they are also quite affordable. This top I have on is £18 only and the quality is great, even after popping it in the wash.

I love everything about this top. It is perfect for the season, a great Christmas top to style, and my very first Christmas top (this week seems to be all about my firsts), I love it. I will be wearing a lot of this piece in the next couple of weeks, my kids love it, all I need is a Christmas hat and I am good to go on Christmas Day, lol…

Lylia Rose Scarf

I styled my beautiful jumper with this eye-catching Black Music Note Foil Print Scarf by Lylia Rose. This beauty is just the way I like my scarves; soft, oversize and light weight. This scarf also feels good to touch, it is so beautiful, I got a couple of nice comments on the day I wore it. It feels slightly thicker than a regular scarf, so it will come in handy this chilly season. I am in love, are you?

Red Christmas Jumper

If you are then you are in luck because, the lovely people at Lylia Rose are offering my readers a 20% off all orders, no expiry, with the code FASHIONPOLICE, so you can get some Christmas presents sorted, and even grab some items for yourself. Lylia Rose is an independent store, it stocks jewellery, fashion accessories like scarves, snoods, purses, makeup bags, pins and brooches so there is something for every woman. I am yet to finish my Christmas shopping, so I will also be using this discount to get a few accessories for my family and friends.

Fashion and Style

Christmas Jumper Look

Here is me hoping I get some good weather over the weekend, so I can get some outfit and product pictures sorted. Being a blogger is so hard during the autumn and winter months, because it gets dark at  3pm, so I have to fit in EVERYTHING before then. I have so much to show you guys, I wish I had the summer daylight right now. There is just a lot to do, but I will get them all done one at a time.

I plan to continue posting daily for the rest of the year so I can get all the Christmas related posts out as soon as possible. Wish me luck, enjoy the rest of your week.
