December, it brings excitement to the air! You can feel it, you can see it, you can hear it! The weather is warmer, everyone is generally in a happy mood and the party/function invites are starting to arrive thick and fast. Christmas parties, kinder concerts, Christmas day lunch, NYE (yes, 2018 is upon us people!) So the question is… what to wear?
We love buying new outfits to wear Christmas Day, there is just something about feeling new and fresh, right before the toddler spills gravy down you during Christmas lunch…! So we asked a few of our favourite local stores (owned by super fabulous local #bossladies) to send us their top picks for fun festive season outfits;
Shop 4 Sorrento Mall, 68 Ocean Beach Road, Sorrento, VIC
