#CityCountryLife Christmas Style


Welcome to this week's #CityCountryLife - Christmas Style. #CityCountryLife is a series run by myself and my gorgeous friend Lizzie. Living in the heart of London I write about life in the capital City and Lizzie writes about all the wonderful things that country life has to offer.

#CityCountryLife Christmas Style



Sweater / Warehouse faux fur vest / Black legging / Boots / Clutch / Monica Vinader stud earrings, £310 / Jewellery

London folk are a funny lot when it comes to fashion, it's all about dressing down to dress up here. Make up is expertly applied to look non existent, hair is styled to look un done and the same goes for fashion. I really notice the difference whenever I'm away London and we go out for dinner or for a drink, people seem to dress up a heck of a lot more and I actually end up feeling underdressed!
I think the outfit above embodies my perfect christmas outfit. I'm having a bit of a Mint Velvet moment right now and I adore this jumper with a Star on the back, a subtle nod to Christmas, the tassled suede boots and clutch bags are also from there too. The Baukjen leather leggings and the cosy Warehouse faux fur gilet  give the outfit that extra edge and the rose gold accessories from Monica Vinader lift the look to give it some subtle warmth. OPI nails in Ce-less-tial is More work perfectly with the accessories and add an extra christmassy feel.

  2. Hi Becca, what a fabulous outfit! I love those boots, and the jumper and earrings! Very glam. I like to dress up for Christmas Day even though we don't go anywhere except maybe out for a walk - any excuse! I hope you had a lovely Christmas x

    1. Thanks :) Yes it's crazy isn't it! Not that I get out much with two toddlers at home, but when I do I kind of miss having the opportunity to dress up sometimes xx

  5. In Edinburgh I always notice that the women dress up whilst the guys can get away with jeans anywhere! This outfit would be perfect for a party I'm going to - it's a catered event but also 'low key', you've got it spot on with the dressing up to dress down idea!

    Thanks for hosting #CityCountryLife
