Morning ladies today I thought we'd look at outfit inspiration for Christmas Day.  Now if like me you stay home for your Christmas meal it's all about looking like you've made an effort, whilst being comfortable in what you're wearing to allow for that all important snooze after lunch.  Plus of course with cooking, washing up etc you don't want to feel too restricted or worry about oil splashing & ruining your clothing.

Christmas Day 2, My Midlife Fashion, Shop My Style, mint velvet nali pointed toe flats, whistles kick flare cropped trousers, marks and spencer cold shoulder floral top, hush josie jumpsuit, john lewis leopard print square toe ballet pump

Top - Marks & Spencer
Trousers - Whistles
Shoes - Mint Velvet

Jumpsuit - Hush
Ballet Pumps - John Lewis

As you will see from the 5 outfits I've styled I've mainly picked separates as the beauty with these is that they can be mixed & matched with other items hanging in your wardrobe & of course can so easily be dressed up or down.  Although I'm seriously liking the idea of the Hush jumpsuit, which has to be the ultimate comfort for Christmas day bar a onesie & if you fancy dressing it up more simply team with heels & a statement necklace.

Back to today & I'm keeping things nice & simple for a day of doing.  Absolutely love this new breton that comes with the cuffs attached - just genius & it adds that extra bit of detailing to a wardrobe classic that I love.

So ladies do you have a go to look for Christmas Day - perhaps you never quite make it to getting changed out of your PJs & enjoy the fact the whole family can enjoy a pyjama day?  Or do you insist on everyone wearing their Sunday best, or like me like to fall somewhere in the middle?  I'd love to hear what you're planning on wearing this year.

Finally just a couple of discount codes to share with you - there's up to 50% off at Office Shoes here & ASOS have 30% off partywear here.

Off out tonight on hubby's Christmas works do so I'll post my outfit later on Instagram.  See you in the morning as usual.

  1. Hi Jane. First of all, I love your blog and open it up as soon as my children are at school ☺
    As a mum of young twins, I find myself in relaxed, casual style most of the time so this outfit is right up my street! I adore this top but am gutted that they don't appear to have the red colourway anymore. Really hope they come back in stock soon.
    Have a good day 😘

    1. Hi Lisa thank you so much for your lovely comment. It's put a huge smile on my face :-)
      Definitely keep an eye out for the top as hopefully they'll have some more back in stock shortly. Alternatively it can be worth phoning the stores in London as I managed to find my cropped sailor pants when they were out of stock online & they will post them out to you.
      Enjoy your weekend.
      Jane xx
