Here’s an unpopular opinion for you: I don’t like Christmas.
That isn’t to say that I hate it (though sometimes I say that I do), it’s just that I find the whole predictable process extremely hyper-commerical and tiresome. I don’t like the obligation to buy tonnes of presents for people I would happily buy for any other day of the year, especially when it involves diving into jam-packed shop after jam-packed shop. I don’t like the inevitable disappointment of placing so much trepidation on one 24 hour cycle. And no, I don’t even like Elf.
That’s all well and good Jess, but what has all this got to do with this outfit? I hear you cry.
Well, the thing is, this skirt is sort of my way of alleviating some of my exterior Scrooge. Don’t get me wrong, I am a tentative fan of the Christmas jumper, but frankly, they don’t seem to go with much of my wardrobe. This sequinned skirt, on the other hand, is my Christmas jumper equivalent.
Its from River Island and it’s very different from what I usually choose to wear, though it’s proving to fit in rather seamlessly with my other wardrobe staples. Here I am wearing it and the Uniqlo sweater that’s so ubiquitous in my current outfits that I’m considering having it surgically attached.
I hope that by at least attempting a Christmas wardrobe through the medium of a column of sequins, I can be forgiven for disliking the annual holiday that everyone else goes mental for.
