Top*: Blue Vanilla 
Skirt*: Blue Vanilla
Necklace*: Jon Richard
Boots*: Quiz Clothing

I can't believe we're midway through December - this month has gone crazy quick, and I'm so excited for the Christmas festivities to get underway. In the spirit of all things festive, I thought I'd put together a very autumnal outfit, with a pop of cherry red and black, and a deep red lip to set things off. 

The beautiful metallic cropped tee and mesh check skirt are both from Blue Vanilla and I think they go perfectly together. The skirt has a stretchy waist, which is ideal if you've had a few too many mince pies, and I think both the top and the skirt are really flattering. I've wanted a black check midi skirt for a while now so this was perfect. I'd never previously heard of Blue Vanilla but they have some gorgeous pieces on there so are definitely worth checking out - their prices are great, too. 

I thought I'd finish the outfit off with the stunning statement necklace from Jon Richard, and I've got my faithful Quiz boots on as well, which set off the outfit nicely. I think this outfit would be perfect for Christmas eve drinks with friends, and looks nice and dressy (perfect for the party season) without be TOO spangly and sparkly - the metallic top and statement necklace give things just the right amount of glitz and glam. 

Are you looking forward to Christmas parties aplenty? Is this something you would wear to them?
