This will be my last post of the year.
But before we all disappear into a cinnamon-scented fog of mince pies, wine and presents, I just wanted to introduce you to a brilliant buy from Boden that would work all the way through Christmas – plus make a great NYE alternative to the LBD.
This silk colourblock maxi in a mix of blues is a must-buy (and in the sale!) – luxurious, in the perfect colour combo and simple enough to work with a white tee shirt or an embellished jacket and statement necklace.
Here’s how I’ve styled it for three different events. Warning: It’s long, so you’ll need heels (although if you’re taller, it would look brilliant with trainers and a grey sweatshirt, totally luxe normcore! Have I just created a whole new idiot fashion phrase? Possibly).

TEAMING WITH A SIMPLE CASHMERE CREW NECK
A CLASSIC OVERSIZED WHITE SHIRT, BELTED AT THE WAIST
Have you also noticed that Boden’s sale is currently on? The most-Instagrammed beaded ballet pumps have been reduced to almost half price, and their AMAZING embellished knit – which has to be the ultimate in Christmas jumpers – has been reduced significantly too. Wear with slim-leg cigarette trousers and sparkly flats for an easy at-home festive look.
And FINALLY, just before I go and eat my own body-weight in Quality Street (not really Mum!), I just wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU ALL. Thank you all so much for reading MMM, for all your amazing feedback, comments, Tweets and Instagram comments. Thank you.
It’s been a big year for me – I took the plunge to leave my day job and go freelance so I could build MMM and be around more for my crazy pair. As 2015 looms, I am feeling happy and positive. May I wish you all a very happy Christmas, the best new year and I send you all lots of festive love xx
