Christmas Traditions & Festive Wear

The countdown is well and truly on. In less than a week the big day will be here, and all that’s left to do will be to eat all the food, open the gifts and relax, and I can not wait. I’m going to take a full week off from A Style Album. No Instagram, No emails, No blogging. When your career is online, it’s super hard to switch off, so I’m making a conscious effort this year to disengage and hopefully get re-inspired in the process. I’ll be enjoying getting dressed up for Christmas Dinner and all the traditions that have shaped the festive season over the years with my friends & family.

Dress & Belt Ralph Lauren


We go out for Christmas Dinner every year (with 22 of us, no one wants to host!) and it’s a great excuse to dress up fancy. This year I’ll be wearing a Polka Dot midi dress from Ralph Lauren. I’ve been super impressed with Ralph Lauren’s party wear pieces this season and love so much of their collection. The price point is reflective of the quality and design, and the dress I chose is flattering and so comfortable to wear. The perfect throw on and go dress, not too tight so plenty of room to enjoy the day in comfort and style. I’ll be wearing with biker boots and adding the belt to pull the look together. It can also be styled with heels and worn to a Christmas Party.

Christmas Eve dinner with friends…


For the last 5/6 years a group of my friends have gotten together with our kids and met for lunch on Christmas Eve, and It’s turned into our tradition. I look forward to our catch up, and it kicks off the Christmas festivities. The kid’s excitement levels are beyond, and it’s so lovely to get together with friends for a celebratory drink. This year I’ll be wearing my favourite Vintage jeans with a high neck, romantic style blouse from Ralph Lauren; an elevated smart/casual look. I love teaming a dressy blouse with beat-up jeans, playing on that High/Low dressing.

New Pj’s & Christmas Movie on Christmas Eve..


A tradition that’s been going since me and my sisters were little. We open one present on Christmas Eve, and it’s always new pj’s, we then settle down to watch a Christmas movie (usually Santa Claus The Movie) It’s something we’ve all carried on with our children (or try to, harder now mine are teenagers). I love the magic of Christmas and carrying on old family traditions adds to it. There’s something so lovely about fresh pj’s; it’s a real treat to settle down for the night with my kids. Ralph Lauren pj’s are the ultimate in luxury if you have the same tradition going!
