It's officially December and that means we can now get excited for Christmas, without restraint. I love the run up to Christmas, it's a time of year where everyone tries to be a little nicer, a little kinder and a little happier. Where a smile and a nod go further than the rest of the year and Christmas cheer can be found on every aisle at the supermarket. What's not to love?
I also adore a festive print and there's no time like Christmas to treat yourself to a pretty new dress (or two), I mean, a Christmas dress is a must, right? And maybe a wee party dress or two?
When I delve into my fondest Christmas memories, one little story shines brighter than the others and that story is The Nutcracker. I have such wonderful memories of being utterly entranced by the story when I was younger and to this day I still make sure I have a Nutcracker decoration and a Ballerina decoration. Now I've found the perfect dress to indulge my fondest memory and it comes from a fantastic Irish store, I Love Carousel. In fact, I fell so much in love with both the dress and the store that this post marks a (fleeting) return to the world of fashion and style blogging!

I Love Carousel are a great vintage inspired Irish store with two stores in the heart of Dublin City and a fantastic website where they deliver internationally and offer FREE instore pick up. You can expect to find quirky prints, vintage inspired dresses (my fave!) and some deadly accessories, wouldn't this beautiful Cloche Hat make a wonderful Christmas present?
As always, I've gone with a red lip and some flicks, it's tradition at this time of year! I am so ready to feel festive, what about you?
Hope you enjoyed me dipping my feet into fashion blogging again!
