I know Christmas is probably the LAST thing anyone wants to talk about right now, but I’m just a little bit behind that’s all…!
Although not quite my first blog post of the year – that accolade belongs to my 2020 bloopers and outtakes post from 1st January – but this feels like the first post proper. Back to my posting schedule, back to my daily routine, back on top of my Inbox, back posting to Instagram. Also, Blue Monday is over with for yet another year (it was yesterday and I have to admit I didn’t even notice?).
I think we need to pretend/imagine that the beginning of January 2021 belongs to 2020 and start afresh, so that’s how I’m treating everything from now on.
(Actually the Chinese New Year started on 12 February, so maybe we’ll go with THAT New Year instead, shall we…?)
So this really should have been posted in the week between Christmas and NYE, but I decided to take a long break off over the Christmas period. And I mean a loooooooong break.

The break lasted a whole lot longer than planned, as I underestimated just how exhausted I’d be after one of the busiest periods in my blogging career EVER. I’m not kidding, I think every campaign that I would normally have done over the main lockdown months of March – October 2020 came at me during November and December. And having no work coming in for almost six months meant I really needed the income, as was the case for so many other bloggers.
Therefore THANK YOU for the support you’ve shown me here, on Instagram and with my new Etsy venture Not Lamb Home – I really appreciate it!
Let’s quickly talk Christmas Day outfit: I did the gold, red and white thing. (Doesn’t get more Christmassy than that.) Elasticated waistband for Christmas lunch was a godsend. Still loving the oversized lace collar. Wore my charity shop sweater again, I realise it’s the same thing I wore in my last outfit post – who cares, I love it and you get to see it styled another way!
Talking of styling another way, this time I’ve included 5 ways to wear a metallic pleated maxi skirt (scroll down past my main pics).
Next post will be my part 2 of the Year in Review post for 2020… gird your loins!
Did you dress up for Christmas Day or did you continue with the 2020 theme of sweatpants, sweatpants and more sweatpants? Tell me in the comments…
Stay safe, XOXO
P.S. Do not fear, the heels were worn for about 10 minutes and were promptly replaced by slippers. I like my fashun but I’m not CRAZY…!
