Chicken and Christmas OOTD :)

As I've said before, Sunday's are for pj's or trackies in my world, and it takes something pretty amazing to get me out of them.
In this case, the culprit was chicken.

In fact I was venturing to NANDOS *drools* with my best friend for some much needed girl time, complete with a bit of Peri-Peri loveage.

Given that we were going for food, and Nandos isn't that dressy, I picked an outfit that I knew looked more dressed up than something I'd wear on any regular day, but wouldn't show the inevitable food baby that I would get...

Feeling Christmassy I went for a red theme with my usual black rest-of-outfit, (ooh adventurous) complete with my Primarni black faux-fur snood, which quite frankly I would sleep in if that was normal.
I did a bit of Winter layering too; what looks like red, flowery shorts is actually a Summer playsuit. Given that I wanted to wear red, and the material is quite thick and almost velvety in texture, I figured it could withstand coming out of my wardrobe beyond the chills of September...
With a black top over it, it was like a whole new outfit yey!
Just don't mention the added extra faff when going to the toilet - as if playsuit's aren't bad enough as it is!

The red playsuit before I layered it up.

Without the blazer, you can see the top has see-through mesh sleeves, but unfortunately it was a bit nippy in good old Nandos, so taking these pictures were the only time my nice sleeves saw daylight (I say daylight, it was dark).

What I'm wearing:

Blazer - H&M
Black T-Shirt - H&M
Red floral playsuit - Boohoo
Leggings - Matalan
Flatforms - Barratts
Faux-fur Snood - Primark

Owl Earrings - New Look
Owl Necklace - River Island

On my face:

Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow Pallette - 02 Coffee Bean (discontinued)
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - 2 Light
Maybelline - The Falsies Mascara
Bourjois - Delice de Poudre Bronzer 
Rimmel Lipstick - Alarm

Sending you all some Peri-Peri love and hope you're all having a lovely Christmas so far :)

P.S I have a free half chicken saved on my loyalty card, so expect another Nandos OOTD soon.

Mmmmmm, chicken.
