Fes­tive style

Woman & Home (South Africa) - - Style Tips -

My chil­dren hate how I dress for church and tell me that I’m show­ing oƒ. They think it’s fine to turn up in some tat. “Think of it as a chris­ten­ing, dar­lings. We are cel­e­brat­ing the birth of a baby. If you were go­ing to a real chris­ten­ing you’d wear a dress or jacket. So go and change... NOW.”

Luck­ily, I’ve got Christ­mas dress­ing down to a pre­cise art. Al­ways a dress and a pair of heels, and sparkly ear­rings are a must.

Ev­ery­thing is con­sid­ered. StuŠng the turkey at 6am will be ac­tioned in a clean, ironed pair of py­ja­mas. I wear a bra un­der­neath in case one of our guests de­cides to come and ‘help’.
