We are harking back to the festive period for a quick look this week at what we wore over Christmas and New Year.

We actually spent Christmas Day together with our respective families and Anne H's blogger daughter Lizzy came home to Yorkshire, having moved to London earlier in the year, so it was great for our girls to also spend time together too.

Anne H is wearing a bargain from one of her favourite catalogue/online retailers Madeleine. In pure silk and a fabulous, flattering length which will also work perfectly as a cover up in the summer months.  This top was on a discount code so she got at a really good price of around £110 but it is currently at £159.95, however she recommends registering with them as they often have flash sales and discount codes and the quality of their clothing is very good.

We seemed to spend this Christmas going shopping for Christmas presents and then getting something for ourselves too - a real "one for you and one for me" mentality which is really not good, but this top was a bargain from Phase Eight.   It is one of those tunic tops that they do oh so well and is a really easy item to dress up or down  The design is called Meg it has a curved longer drop hem at the back and is made of a viscose/wool/nylon mix, currently at £45 in the sale and also available in bright red.  She has added Pandora necklaces and bracelets for a bit of Christmas glam.

And here we both are as we spent Christmas Day together with our families. Anne H's top is from Jigsaw and was a gift from her daughter for Christmas.  It is their Crocus drape stitch blouse and comes in a variety of colours at £90.  It has some beautiful cuff detailing and is such a simple yet elegant piece.
She has teamed with black trousers that she has had for a while from MaxMara and some suede boots from Kurt Geiger.

Anne C's outfit is a very festive red sweater trimmed with super soft swansdown around the neck and was bought from an independent boutique in Knutsford, where she recently attended a "Red hair Red dress" event in aid of the charity "Gift of a Wedding" as one of her good friends is a trustee.  They provide everything needed for couples who want to get married, if one or both of them is terminally ill.

Anne has teamed her Christmas sweater with heavy plain black crepe trousers which are from Florence and Fred at Tesco, but are exceptionally good quality for a supermarket brand.  Normally they are thin fabric which do not hang well, but having looked for new ones recently, these are still so much better quality than she has found even in more expensive shops.

Anne has accessorised with ballet flats from Schuh, bought a while ago.  Her watch, from Reclaimed Vintage was a bargain buy at £30 from Asos, while the red earrings (which has a matching necklace) was a Christmas gift from daughter Louise bought in H&M (and which she also has in black).

And here we are playing with another Christmas present - a selfie stick!  Something we have been needing for a while.  We needed a bit of tuition from the girls but think there will be no stopping us now.

For the last day of Christmas entertaining Anne H wore another Phase Eight sale purchase in this long line burgundy knitted polo shirt inspired tunic called Geovana which is still available at £55.   She has teamed with a feather design necklace from Pandora and wide legged flared jeans from MiH with boots from Uterque that she has had for a couple of years.   The gold bangle was another Christmas gift from her daughter which she purchased while in New York from the fair trade designers Raven & Lily -  She did very well, didn't she?

And finally - Anne C's new year outfit was a bit off the wall for her! Her red lace top has a dipped hemline and came from Emphasize - a "travelling shop" which exhibits at shows up and down the country, although the lovely owner does have an actual shop in Romford.

She has teamed it with easy to wear black leggings and has accessorised with a red cocktail ring, and dramatic pompom earrings which were another Christmas gift from her daughter.

Happy New Year!
