The Look: It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year


 
  
 
Dress: Local Boutique
Necklace, Earrings and Tattoos: Lovisa

This Christmas, I decided to inject some festivity into my look. This backless dress has just the right amount of sequins to look Christmassy but not like a walking wrapped gift. I teamed it with my favorite emerald jewellery combo.

I spent my second ever Australian Christmas with my partner, Jake and his family and had a lovely time. Like every year, I ate way too much and drank an excessive amount of wine. Axle the border collie also looked truly the part in his 'Santa Paws' vest, Santa hat and antlers. Jake treated me to a new laptop (he's too nice), so now I can write articles and blog without my laptop (or should I say, rock) crashing every two minutes.

How did you spend your Christmas?

Rachel

  2. Dear Rachel! The dress you are wearing is beautiful. I love the amount of sequins it has and the necklace is super adorable too. You look beautiful wearing both of them. I am so happy you got a new laptop this year. I got mine last Christmas :-) Axle is super cute. Blessings to you always and thanks so much for the cute message you left on my blog. XOXO, Jeannette
