BLOGMAS Day 14: It's All About The Tartan...

I was inspired to write this post because I've been thinking about what I want to wear on Christmas Day and tartan dresses have been catching my eye recently. I tried one on in Primark a month or so ago and the size 10 was too small and the size 12 was too big, so I had no luck there! I have been having a little look online and have come across a lot of tartan items (not just dresses) that I've been loving. Although I'm probably going to have a look around the shops near me before I decide whether to get anything online (just so I can try things on first), I thought I'd share with you some of the tartan items I've come across that I really like...

I love the colour of these Tartan Check Peg Leg Trousers. I think they look so stylish and especially nice with heels! I've been wanting to get some patterned trousers for a while now, but haven't found the right pair that I think are really 'me'. I like how these go in at the bottom and I'd probably team them with a plain jumper, like the model or a plain shirt/t-shirt tucked in.

I absolutely love this Oversized Blanket Scarf. I prefer the big, oversized scarves and have quite a few chiffon ones. I can't resist a cool print! I also love the colour, I think the blue and purple go really well together. It looks so cosy!

I love how casual this 3/4 Sleeve Tie Waist Check Shirt Dress is. I think it'd look lovely with black tights and boots. I've had a few shirt dresses in the past, so this is something that I'd probably try on if I saw it in a shop :).

This Plaid Faux Leather Sleeve Retro Shift Dress is a favourite! I just love the leather sleeves, which add an edge to the dress. Normally with check dresses like this, there are a lot of red and green styles around, so I love that this colour is a bit 'out there' but so nice! I'd love to wear a nice tartan dress on Christmas Day so it'll be great if I find a similar one in town, that I can try on before I buy.

I had to include a skirt and love the look of this Checked Wraparound Skirt. I can totally imagine myself in something like this, with black tights, boots and a plain t-shirt tucked in. I love the simplicity of it, but it can also be a statement piece if everything else you wear with it is quite plain. It's made with cotton flannel, so I imagine it to be really soft and cosy and it also has a revealed zip on the back, which I love!

I'd be such a happy bunny with my wardrobe if I had all of this in it!

Do you have your Christmas Day outfit planned?
