Morning ladies with Christmas fast approaching I thought it was time we started taking a look at all things Christmas. 

I don't know about you but if I could pick myself up & put myself & family inside any brand it would have to be the The White Company as they seem to just do effortless style in terms of homeware & clothing so naturally & perfectly.  I mean seriously who wouldn't want to live inside any of the scenes depicted in their catalogues?!  So with that in mind I'm taking a look at what they've got to offer us this festive season.   Plus The White Company have very kindly given me an exclusive discount code to share with all my readers of 15% off all full priced items plus free UK delivery over £50 with code AS326 :-)

So lets start with Christmas decorations.  Naturally as you'd expect they've got you covered in terms of stylish decorations with everything from Christmas trees, to door wreaths to fairy lights to elegant mercury candlesticks that don't even have to be put away come January.  I've picked out my some of my favourite pieces below but you can see their full range for Christmas here.

Looks 3, my midlife fashion, the white company, the white company 6ft spruce christmas tree, the white company pre lit beaded christmas wreath, the white copany fair isle christmas stocking, the white company rosemary and pinecone christmas garland, the white copany mercury pillar large candle holder, the white copany winter pomander decorations, the white company faceted antiqued star tree decorations, the white copany indulgence pillar candle lantern, the white company cascading fairy lights

Of course decorating the house is only one of the things to think about as there's also the all important table decorations come the big day itself.  Now I generally like to choose items that can be used all year round as I think it a waste if you just have pieces tucked away in the loft only to be used for a couple of weeks during the year.  

As you can see from my favourite pieces below there's plenty of choice with The White Company for pieces that will give you pleasure all year round.  I don't know about you but along with stars I have a huge weakness for hearts (I'm guessing it's a girl thing as my son certainly rolls his eyes when I bring home another item that's heart shaped) & am sorely tempted by their heart porcelain set.  Plus I would even used the place holders I've picked below all year round as I also have a huge weakness for anything mercurised in terms of table decorations & tea light holders.

Then moving onto gifts, who wouldn't want to receive a beautifully packaged box containing any of the items below.  I already own a couple of the below picture frames which, with their extra deep mount frame special memories beautifully & I can also vouch for their scented candles to,  Beautifully packaged, long lasting & they smell divine.  Plus I'm still wearing the floating heart bracelet I was sent last year.

I've put together a few looks below to show you how I'd style their collection for everything from a Christmas party with friends, to a daytime get together, to stylish lounge wear for all that chillaxing & snoozing by the fire we all plan to do once the main event itself is all done & the washing put away.

Now when The White Company asked if I'd be interested in featuring my favourite pieces from their Christmas collection they very kindly send me a gift voucher.  So as well as my top picks I also thought you might also like what I've picked for myself.

my midlife fashion, the white company, the white company beaded love tree decoration, the white company silk piped nightshirt, the white company silver plated heart compact, the white company twin star pave bracelet, the white company supreme faux fur hot water bottle and cover

Twin Star Pave Bracelet - 15% off with code AS326
Supreme Faux Fur Hot Water Bottle & Cover - 15% off with code AS326

So with the thought of cosy, quiet days in by the fire over the festive period I decided to pick a few luxurious treats that I'll enjoy wearing & using whilst enjoying downtime with my loved ones. 

I have to admit to not being a huge fan of pyjamas & instead prefer nightdresses so the thought of slipping into a silk nightshirt for me is pure bliss not to mention cosing up to a super soft faux fur hot water bottle, which I'll also use during the day when working from home if I want a bit or warmth without heating the whole house up, which I think is again probably a woman thing but it always seems so wasteful & indulgent to have the heating on when you're the only one home.

Now I mentioned earlier that I'm still wearing their Floating Heart Bracelet, so when I spotted the above one I thought it would be the perfect accompaniment & I like the idea of the two stars representing my hubby & son.

Finally I just couldn't resist adding to my heart collection with this stunning compact, which could make a beautiful present & comes wrapped in it's own presentation box.  It really is great value for money & the compact has a good weight & feels & looks a lot more expensive than it is.  And in keeping with the love theme, I couldn't not chose the above beaded tree decoration, which I'm planning on hanging on the tree over Christmas & will then hang in our bedroom when the time comes to pack the decorations away.

Back to today & it's all about my new coat.  This season I seem to have fallen head over heels in love with the simplicity of a classic single breasted coat & the Nipper Wool Coat that I've been sent by Great Plains fits into this category perfectly.  I just love the fact the coat has a tailored fit but that it's not too fitted you couldn't wear a chunky knit underneath plus it's so gloriously soft I just keep wanting to stroke it!  If you haven't already done so, then take a peek at their full range of winter coats here, they've got some great styles including a stunning faux leather biker & a timeless navy pea coat.
