It is tradition in my family that every Christmas Eve we go out for family lunch. We have been doing this for about 6 years now and I can’t think of a better way to spend the day. This year we went to a hotel in Dublin city centre called the Shelbourne. It is quite formal dining in the hotel so I wanted to make a bit of an effort. And anyway who doesn’t like to dress up on Christmas Eve? We had a brilliant afternoon and evening and when we got home afterwards we snuggled down by the fire and opened a present…or maybe two. I know, I know very naughty. Santa wouldn’t be happy with us ! I had a bit of a wardrobe faux pas and only bought this dress the day before Christmas Eve. I had planned to wear a skort but I couldn’t find the right top to match and I hadn’t got much time to trawl the shops, so instead I opted for this black and white topshop dress. I paired the dress with these black asos shoes which I borrowed form my sister. It’s great having another wardrobe to borrow from! Would love to know how some of you spent your Christmas Eve.
