I may have mentioned before that I’m quite tall, just under 5ft 11, and I adore Long Tall Sally as I know the sleeves and body length of tops will be perfect, and this may sound daft but I rejoice that they have leg lengths which are actually too long for me – hooray for this novelty! Long Tall Sally asked me to let them know all about my favourite outfits for Christmas giving them 3 different looks, and letting them know what I’m hoping for on my Christmas gifts list too! So here we go!
Christmas shopping, I’ve gone for warmth and comfort with this look! I love hunting for unusual gifts in the Christmas markets and the independent shops so I need to make sure I wrap up well or I end up very cold hence I’ve chosen the cosy Quilted down filled jacket! I love to wear jeans, and I’ve chosen lift and shape jeans to help with my mumtum – always a bonus! The fox jumper is a serious alternative to the festive jumper, it’s a fun eye catching jumper which can be worn all winter! I’ve chosen leather shearling lined boots to tuck jeans into, they’re a cosy and comfortable style – perfect for all that walking around the shops!
Christmas party, I’ve chosen a stunning purple shimmer shutter dress with a super flattering neckline! I’ve teamed it with the glitter court shoes as I think they give a really festive feel to the outfit (and I’d then wear the shoes again with a jumpsuit for New Years Eve!). The funnel neck coat is perfect for allowing me to arrive at the party looking warm, and I hate having cold fingers so the leather gloves are my Christmas season must have!
Christmas Day. We’ve always dressed up for Christmas day, so this is something since having my own little family I’ve continued and now I dress us all up for the big day! I try to go for functional and festive, as I know inevitably I will end up walking the dog or crawling around trying to find the lost tv remote at some point during the day, but still love to go for some sparkle so the beaded necklace tunic is perfect! I’d team it with a throw on cardigan, hidden support treggings (love a bit of extra help on my bottom half!) and the stunning double zip suede ankle boots.
OK, this list could have had a post all of its own!! The soft leather jacket is top of my list, this would be a wardrobe staple, ideal for the school run or lunch with friends, it’d be worn repeatedly throughout the year! The flamingo pyjamas are amazing, and if I don’t find these in my Christmas stocking Santa’s elves have obviously made a serious over sight! The teal super fluffy robe would be a real treat for any tall lady, as it’s long enough to really wrap yourself into for a cosy night on the sofa!
So, that’s my #DearSally list, what’s on yours?
