Every year I tend to do the majority of my Christmas shopping online because I always know what I want but one day every year, Mr WLL and I go Christmas shopping at our local shopping centre and we buy our Christmas PJs, chocolate for our stocking and our Christmas Lush bath ballistic, along with any remaining presents that we need to buy our friends and family. We make the most of the day and stop for dinner, drinks and sometimes a film before we head home so I always like to dress smartly for it and this is what I wore this year.
The top is the Long Sleeve Shift Dress from Goddiva. I have the red print which looks very autumnal, bold and eye catching but it is also available in blue. The sleeves balloon a little and then gather just below the elbow for a comfortable fit, so if you aren't too keen on showing off your arms then the sleeves are perfect- plus they keep you warm. The dress is soft, has some stretch to it and feels really comfortable to wear which is exactly what I need when walking around the shops!
I've worn this on a colder day with just a gilet over the top. The dress is quite long and hits me on my mid thigh which makes it a great length to wear with leggings, or even thick black tights. I also paired it with my black boots that are new to my wardrobe this autumn/ winter.
