Party Pants

Phew! Friday night is finally here, the husband is on his work do so I’m spending tonight ‘baby sitting’, blogging and deciding between a Snickers or popping open a bottle of prosecco.  I’m also desperately plotting an outfit for my Christmas party next week, of which I’m on the hunt for something sparkly.

For me a well fitting pair of trousers or jeans would be my number one choice over a dress or skirt, and with that in mind I’ve been ordering, trying on and returning pair after pair of sequin covered, party pants.  Have I found the perfect pair?  Well you might just have to wait till next week and check out Instagram to see my Christmas party outfit, but in the mean time I’m bringing you some of my high street favs.

Of course Christmas comes but once a year so we don’t want to splurge on an outfit that sits in the wardrobe for the other 364 days, thIs why I think a pair of sequin covered trousers has a lot more to offer than just the office party – have a peak at the inspo below.

See how fabulous these trouser look teamed with Converse, and how easy they are to dress down with a big chunky knit?  The ability to team such a frivolous looking pair of trousers with more casual pieces turns these perfect party pants into an easy everyday item – that of course still brings a little glam to your look, perfect for Christmas Day.

So whether like me you’re still hunting out that party perfect look, or feel that it’s your time to shine no matter the occasion, take a peak at these super sequin strides our high street has on offer.


Snug and Stylish on Christmas Morning.

I bet you’ve already planned what you’ll be wearing Christmas Day, something casual but cool, with the right amount of sparkle to impress but not enough that something could fall off and into the Christmas dinner, almost choking uncle Charlie!  But I bet you haven’t thought about what delights you’ll be waking up in.

In my household most of the pictures taken on Christmas Day happen to be first thing in the morning – when it’s present opening time.  This has, in the past, led to some awful moments being captured including bad hair, pillow face and worse still, some unbelievable outfit combinations. Having now learnt from past Christmas morning fashion disasters I now add a new pair of pyjamas to my festive shopping list essentials.

One of my favourite places to start the hunt for perfect PJs is at Yawn.  Just one quick browse at their yummy imagery has me dreaming about snuggling up on the sofa in a pair of their super-soft pyjamas.  Allow yourself a little slice of luxury in one of Yawns’ scrummy night shirts, PJ or short sets.  Soon you’ll be living by their mantra – Phone off, kettle on, pyjama time!

But if you’ve missed the last of the guaranteed deliveries for Christmas, and still want to be snug and stylish on our favourite festive morning here’s a selection of my high street hottest.

Heres to a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
