I may have photographed it early, but this is what I’ll be wearing this Christmas, exactly this. Well, maybe with a pair of sheepskin slippers.

I spotted this Zara blazer whilst shopping with my sister last week and felt it was the one thing missing from my wardrobe. I’ve got some velvet heels and a velvet pleated skirt but a jacket? I needed to complete the trilogy, obviously.

I must admit, I’ve never been a fan of anything with ‘pre shrugged’ sleeves, but on this jacket I’ll let it slide. I like the shorter length of the sleeves as it shows a good amount of skin (something we all see too little of come winter).

This is the perfect throw on jacket for the party season – over dresses, layered under a coat and the perfect ‘inside’ jacket for christmas day over a t-shirt. Which was what I had in mind when getting it. Just add some bling.

Moon and star earrings: £9.50, Marks & Spencer. 

Whatever you’re wearing this Christmas, I wish you all a very merry holiday relaxing with family and friends, eating and drinking far too much and watching festive films!
