It’s almost Christmas Time, I am home, back in Germany, and the last week has been filled with meeting with friends and family, enjoying the time together and getting into a festive mood. This beautiful dress that I was asked to choose from Lovedrobe, is the perfect piece to put together a very seasonal outfit.
At home we usually aren’t dressing up super festive for the Holy Evening, it’s more about being casual and comfy, so you can eat all the delicious food and enjoy a glass of mulled wine or two, while lounging on the couch. Still there are lots of others festive occasions, like Christmas parties or New Years coming up and so I am super excited about this wonderful retro inspired lace panel dress in a deep red.
I didn’t want to hide the gorgeous neckline under a cardigan, but wanted to make the outfit appropriate for the cold German weather, so I paired it with a simple black top, black tights and shiny ankle boots. The gold jewelry and a contrasting black belt pull the look together. If I had a pettiecoat that would totally work with this flowy skirt as well.
I sized up to a 26UK, though I mostly wear a 24UK, but the dress isn’t elastic and I already knew that Lovedrobe sometimes runs a little small. The 26 fits really nice, it’s fitted around the bust and waist, but not too tight, I love the knee-length and the thick fabric that makes the dress very winter appropriate. I wanted to try out a slightly different look, and so I paired it with a thick, diamond knit black jumper, which is gifted to me from Lovedrobe aswell.
I think it gives the chic outfit a more cozy touch and keeps you warm during a trip to the Christmas Market or a long winter walk. Both pieces, the dress and the jumper, are reduced at the moment, but you can also find lovely other dresses and tops at Lovedrobe.
Have you already wrapped all your gifts? We are about to set up the Christmas tree now, followed by a trip to the Christmas market.

I am wishing you all a very festive holiday time, filled with joy and being around your loved ones.
