Christmas day looks

So when I posted the last few blogs on Christmas party looks, I got a lot of requests to do a Christmas day look...so I said "Why not!".
I,for one, get completely overdressed on Christmas day...that's only because it was always tradition during my childhood we got really dressy new clothes religiously every year for Christmas day!! I'm sure it was the same for all of you, along with having good Sunday clothes which under no circumstances were allowed to be worn mid week! (haha how Irish of us!)

So I have pulled together some looks that I would possibly wear on Christmas day...I've always gone for dresses that you can wear a pair of opaque tights with ..for fear it could snow....now when in gods name in the last decade has it snowed on Christmas day?? delusional I am!!...but you never know right? So here it goes ladies, let me know what you guys wear on Christmas day..I know some of my friends have PJ days which is just as nice...as all we'll be doing is eating eating and drinking..well in my case anyway!
I adore this dress, this pic does not do it justice. Definitely check it out online and that coat..white coats are just perfect at this time of the year (lets not think about how we're going to keep them clean as practicality literally flies out the window during silly season..)
