Sorry ! but I am in full Christmas mode as all the fab clothes are starting to make their way into shops and now might be the time to get the wardrobes done and dusted so it is one less thing to do closer to the day.
For your little men over Christmas I love this tartan suit from Mini V by Very at Littlewoods. It is perfect for a special occasion over the Christmas period and you could mix and match the waistcoat and shirt with jeans for another look over the holidays.
For a more casual yet still dressy look for Christmas as you know I am partial to a grandad collar on little boys and this River Island shirt on the Littlewoods site is only €15 and would be lovely paired with a pair of navy or wine chinos.
Popping into Zara, this star shirt for boys is perfect for Christmas, paired under these wine cords The cords even have an adjustable waistband for your little man if he eats too much on the day, but they will grow with him guaranteeing you plenty of wear over the New Year and early Spring months.
For girls this week I stumbled across another gorgeous Irish childrens’ brand recently and have fallen in love with their pieces. How stunning is this star dress, the sleeves are amazing! Check out Thelittesunshine.ie for more beautiful handmade childrens clothing. I would pair this with chunky cream cable knit tights and brown leather boots for a lovely Christmas look.
I have most of my Christmas clothes for herself bought but am tempted to pick up a few more pieces such as this gorgeous sparkly girls dress from Littlewoods.
For Christmas day how adorable is this little velour sparkly dress for only 20€ in the Mini V by Very collection.
And one last option from Littlewoods is this beautiful red mesh star long sleeved dress,again only €20!
for something a little different and if your little girl isn’t fond of dress how fab is this cord jumpsuit from Zara in a beautiful plum colour. I would put this romantic blouse underneath it with a little sparkly cardigan and the floral ankle boots from Penneys would be a perfect finish.
Comfort is all I want on Christmas day but it is nice to look stylish too for the many family photos. I always buy a dress that has room for the Christmas dinner and drinks and I love this more grown up version of the tulle skirt from Littlewoods. I would pair it with a short-sleeved woolen jumper and a statement necklace so if you are cooking you don’t overheat!
I love this Pu skirt from V by Very aswell and with the many bodysuits in all the shops at the moment I would pair the velvet v neck one from Zara underneath in red for a look over the Christmas for a less formal night out.
I like this pearl studded skater dress from Zara for only €39 if you are looking for a more casual and very comfortable Christmas day dress.
And for the ultimate comfort, this swing style lace dress from Zara in a steel blue colour , it also comes in red if you want a little more of a festive colour.Regardless of colour this ticks all the boxes for comfort and style.
Another dress in Zara that caught my eye is this floral piece, it does look short on the model but may be closer to the knee on us mere mortals.
In-store in Zara right now is this mustard rose print dress which can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
If you have alot of parties starting soon for the Christmas period this red dress available on Littlewoods and from Ax Paris is a bargain at only €45, it is bang on trend with the frilled fluted sleeves and can be mixed and matched with accessories to get you through a few occasions throughout the year.
This is a little risque but this dress grows on me every time I see it. I think it would be amazing over the Christmas period for a night out with the other half if you manage a night away from the kids.
If dresses aren’t your thing this beaded coat is divine instore in Zara at the moment and would be lovely over leathers or a jumpsuit for a little bling to the party season.
And lastly staying with jackets and the infamous Zara biker jacket this week has had a print makeover. I wasn’t sure at first when I saw it but I just love the quality and fit of these bikers and this would be stunning over a little black dress throughout the party season for nights out.
And I couldn’t finish my first Christmas clothing post without a nod to the Irish tradition that is the Late Late Toy Show, and Penneys have outdone themselves again this year with their Pj’s from babies right up to adults. With €75,000 being donated by Penneys to Temple Street foundation and CMRF Crumlin I will be getting the pj’s for the kids again this year, it’s great to show your support.
So there you have it, my first Christmas clothing picks for him for her and for Mammy. I will be posting more over the coming weekly slots and be sure to share your bargains , I love seeing all the bargains that you pm me .
