Plus size outfit day

It is that time again it's Plus size outfit day and the theme this month is "it's Christmas time". I really wasn't sure what to do for this months as we don't decorate the house or have a tree so i couldn't show you any of those things. I decided to show you the sort of thing i would wear on the day itself.
I'm lucky that the office i work in is closed for Christmas so i have 11 days off work, i plan to spend my time off relaxing with the Mr, watching films and obviously doing a bit of shopping!

So here is the outfit i chose, i wanted something that you could tell was for Christmas but that was also comfy and with some stretch. Because we all know with all that lovely food around on the day you need something with extra room :)

I decided on this dress that i have had for a few years and my new cardigan, with my jewelled headband for that extra christmas sparkle.

The cardigan is from Primark and was £14 i got it in the biggest size they do a 20 and it doesn't feel to small in fact the fit is really good. I wanted to get a Christmas jumper but couldn't find one and just when i had given up i spotted this cardigan. I really love the pattern at the top.

The dress was is an old one from Dorothy Perkins in a size 20 it has stretch and it so comfy, It's the perfect dress to wear on Christmas day. It has pockets which will come in handy for a place for me to put all those Christmas chocolates!

The headband I'm wearing is from Matalan and was £8 and the shoes are limited edition Irregular choice from a year  or so ago. I really love how the design goes over the two shoes on the scotty dog and his lead. I also added a homemade Christmas brooch, meet Mr polar bear.

I felt this outfit was fitting for the Christmas theme without going over the top. I love it and hope you do too.
