Christmas Dress....

I can't even remember the very last evening Mr. Poppins and I had out together, a lovely romantic meal or maybe even a quick drink, no I really can't, must be so long ago. With having our children and no relatives close to hand romantic evenings are very few and far between in the Poppins household, so I decided to bring a little romance home when I chose my Christmas Dress, yes I know it may look a tad uncomfortable, but really it is quite nice to wear and it is such a beautiful colour.

So there I shall be at Christmas in my little Christmas Dress, reading love poems to my husband, sipping bucks fizz enjoying his company, we may not be having any flashy Christmas parties to go to, but we shall hopefully be happy in each others company, at home, the children shall be playing with their new toys and I shall hopefully feel like a little princess in my new Christmas Dress :)

I would love to know what you are wearing .

Merry Christmas



  1. Good for you dressing up for really is a beautiful dress :)

  3. Mary, just popped by to say thank you so much for the presenr, your spoiling me! Tis under the tree.....i have a wonderful collection of gifts, i'm so lucky!

    I just adore your dress.....your so pretty, the dress will enhance all your prettiness.....I'm sure you hubs will think that too!

    I'm either wearing......high waisted trousers, with a 1940's style blouse.....and sparkly shoes or a midnight blue velvet Laura Ashley dress.....can't decide....depends how well i'm feeling, which at the nor very well at all......:>((

    Hows the littles?xxx

  4. Fabulous dress... I tried it on myself when I was choosing dresses for the Christmas break... I managed to get 2 fabulous red ones from Warehouse in their sale.

    My mum always dresses up for dinner with my dad and esp on weekends they'll lay the table and sit down for a meal together. I love it when friends visit and ask her where she's going and she replies... "nowhere..."

  5. Your dress looks so good. You'll feel heavenly in it! Is it new?

    To be very honest Mary, you have only just made me think that I will wear something very special since it'll just be hubby and I!

    Thanks for the inspiration!


  6. oh I can imagine exactly how truly scrumptious you are going to look wearing that :-) hair up or down? gorgeous!!!
    ps - received a parcel in the post not ten mins ago which I suspect is from you!!! I made the decision to not send yours as was cutting it fine when I got your address for last posting but will see what I can do but please forgive me as it may be a few days late!! x

  7. Happy Christmas!
    That is such a lovely dress! My main concern when considering what to wear on Christmas day is how comfortable I will feel once I have started scoffing chocs and cheese!!
    Me and Mr Plum are spending Christmas at my parents this year, so will be wearing my pink "Sparkle" starry PJ's in the morning and then will probably change into my new favourite dress from Joules which is dark blue and very wintry ... with fab beads!!
    Have a lovely day xxx

  8. Gorgeous dress Mary! I haven't decided yet. I usually wear some smart shorts (with tights!) and a nice top. No parties for me either!

  16. Hi there, wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Christmas (love that dress!),x!

  17. I was going to say that the central heating in your house must be a lot more efficient than in ours..but then I rememebred that by the time I'd cooked the turkey made trifle, and pizza for teatime visitors and set the table ..I was boiled! I wore some thin linen pants and a loose matching top. I think you must have looked fabulous..and you must be teeny.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. X
