This is the outfit that I wore to my works Christmas party this year - apologies for the poor lighting, I took the photos in our hotel room just before we went down for dinner and the mood lighting wasn't ideal for an OOTD. We were staying at Blythswood Square in Glasgow which is one of my favourite hotels - we stayed here previously on our anniversary a couple of years ago so when we booked it for our works Christmas do I was well excited that we'd get to stay again.
The dress is from Primark - you don't get the full effect from the photos but it's a navy and blue floral patterned skater dress (I actually have the same dress in burgundy too!). For accessories I went for lots of sparkle with a blue sequinned bag (old, from John Lewis), my current favourite New Look necklace, a sparkly ring (old - can't even remember where it's from) and this gorgeous vintage style bangle from Glitzy Secrets*.
Normally I get really stressed out about finding the perfect party dress but this year I decided to be a bit more relaxed about it and was actually planning on wearing a dress I already owned until I spotted this in Primark a few days before the party. Also as it's fairly casual I'll actually get a lot of wear out of it rather than it being relegated to the back of my wardrobe.
After shooting off fairly early from the party (I'm definitely getting old - by 10, after a massive meal and a few glasses of wine I was half asleep) I took advantage of the amazing hotel room by having a lush bath and then watching a movie in bed (falling asleep 30 mins before the end). Party animal.
