Party season is well and truly upon us! I can't believe how quickly it's come around, can you? I have a love-hate relationship with planning Christmas party outfits in the sense that I love getting dressed up, but sometimes it's just too stressful trying to find the right thing to wear. I either find too much and can't decide, or I find nothing and have a last minute panic. This year, I actually found a dress really early on (crikey) which practically never happens. I bought this Topshop beauty which is I adore - apart from the trail of glitter I leave behind! There are several trends I'm loving at the moment and I'm a tiny bit gutted I haven't got another five parties lined up...although it's safe to say my bank balance would hate me for that.

I've been drooling over the teal sequin dress all week but just can't justify buying it with no occasion to wear it, although part of me is thinking it would be fab for NYE. I love the twist on this year's sequin trend with bright, bold colours. Another few favourites of mine are the glittery boots (hello party feet) which are perfect for adding some glitz to a simple outfit and the red velvet shoes (almost typed red velvet cake then - always got food on the brain!) I have a love-hate relationship with velvet too, it looks amazing and I love to wear it...as long as I don't have to touch it too much. Anyone else struggle with the texture of velvet?! The embroidered playsuit is another fave of mine and gives a wintery, glam nod to the embroidered floral trend, which I'm glad it still around after the summer!
What do you think of my party picks?
