Tartan And Biker (The Christmas Outfit)

Happy Christmassy wishes to one and all!

I hope you’ve all had wonderful festive times with your loved ones, families and friends.
It was a a really relaxed Christmas in the Turone household and it was just perfect. Presents followed by smoked salmon and bagel breakfast, followed by toy playing, train track building and remote- race car driving, then followed approx 3 hours of non stop eating, it was awesome. The epic Christmas dinner that was unbelievably amazing and a hit with all the family and topped off with dessert,cheese boards, after dinner mints and Panatone meant i was literally full to bursting point. I don’t think i’ve ever felt so stuffed in my life…totally worth it though;)

This is what i wore Christmas day…my Christmas dress! I bought it 4 years ago and each year i bring it out for Christmas day 🙂 its become my little tradition. Nothing says “Christmas outfit” more to me than tartan! When i bought it 4 years ago i just had a baby 4 months prior so now after loosing the weight (finally this year!! my baby is now 3!!it took me a while shall we say) its 2 sizes too big, but on christmas day i’m totally ok with that. Smock dress style means more room for turkey..oh yep!! And thats what i did haha!

Is anyone else finding it hard to get back in to the swing of normal-everyday-life? I go back to work tomorrow and i think reality will hit then, but it has been an amazing week off and such a lovely Christmas.

Dress: Next (4 years ago)

Boots & Hat: New Look

Biker Jacket: Mia’s (my step daughters 😉 But originally from Tesco

 So tell me, did you have a lovely Christmas? Do tell, i love to hear what you’ve done this festive season! And like me are you finding it hard to get back in to the swing of everyday life?

    I want that tartan dress for my own!!
    We did lots of eating here in Finland, too. Certainly in a sort of post-Christmas withdrawal now!

    Now I kinda wished I'd worn my plaid dress for Christmas too… but we don't really do Christmas here in Vietnam and our family only had a very casual celebration (though we still had a lot of good food, as you should) and that would be too dressy.

    Sounds like the perfect way to spend Christmas and I love your tartan dress tradition! I also love calling it tartan over plaid like we do here in the states 😉 It was definitely hard to go back to work yesterday but I leave for a New Year's vacation tomorrow- yay! Happy New Year!

    Lucky you to have a week off! I have 4 days off, I go back on Sunday, dreading it!

    I love this dress, looks lovely on you.

    Look at you, gorgeous girl! I never would have known your dress is now too big; it looks so perfect with the jacket and the tights, and those seriously enviable shoes. This year I'm pretty luck – I get two Christmases – one was on Xmas day spent with a group of friends, and the next one will be this Sunday with my family (good thing the flights for my sister were too expensive to come for Christmas day I guess?).
    Merry Merry Christmas, lady!
    p.s. – keep an eye on the mail; there may be a little belated Christmas cheer headed your way 😉

    This outfit is absolutely perfect. That plaid dress looks wonderful with the leather jacket. I think I have an old plaid dress in storage somewhere at school. I'll have to copy this outfit sometime soon when I head back there after the holiday! You look fantastic!

    Oh Rachel, I love the metal details on the purse and booties that bring it all together. Love the leather with the plaid, too. Great photos!!!!! ♥
