Merry Christmas! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day. It’s unusual for me to be posting on Christmas Day, but it just happened that it fell on the last Monday of the month, which is when we post our Style Not Age challenge. We all agreed to go ahead rather than skip or reschedule and Gail chose the theme of “December is For Dressing Up”.
Sequins are always a firm favourite when it comes to festive dressing. Sometimes they are not very comfortable to wear due to being scratchy. But these sequin trousers are stretchy and have a shorts lining, so sitting for long periods in them is not a problem. I wore them for New Year’s Eve last year with trainers and a faux fur coat. The wide leg style makes them surprisingly versatile.
As it’s unseasonably mild at the moment, I’ve teamed the trousers with my pink frilly top from Dona Hortensia in Funchal. For some extra sparkle I added my pink glitter ankle boots and silver jewellery. The bag is a few years old now, in fact I’d forgotten about it! I was looking for a different bag when I found it in the wardrobe and thought it would finish off the outfit nicely.
