From way back before I even had Soleil, every December my best friend Simon and I used to run to Bond Street and stock up on the Ralph Lauren Christmas Holiday candles (normally followed by one too many glasses of wine in Cecconis!), btw if you haven’t smelt the RL Christmas candle, you need to go and get one immediately, so now its a tradition – out come the candles and everything starts to feel super festive. So who better to get the opportunity to work with for the Christmas party dressing season than Ralph Lauren?
Ralph Lauren also has some amazing dresses this reason like this Ruffle-Trim Chiffon Dress. The ruffle detailing is exquisite and so lovely for a daytime look. It would look perfect with the Engraved-Concho Belt which I just love the western look of. The Velvet-Trim Floral Slip Dress is SO stunning and would be the perfect New Year’s Eve dress. It would also look amazing layered over a skinny polo neck jumper for a more casual look.

I completely fell in love with this Pleated Georgette Dress. I love a midi dress, black always looks really chic, and the tiny pleats make it so exquisite, and don’t even get me started on the ruffle neck – DIVINE. This dress really is a classic, I know it will be a go to dress as its great for all kinds of events, I just wore it to the school carol concert, and my husband genuinely asked if I could wear it to dinner as he loves it! it can be dressed up or down – I added earrings and a red lip for a really effortless evening look. I styled it below with this Lennox Vachetta Wide Belt – I love the big, round buckle, which can be worn for all kinds of occasions. Great for cinching in waisted dresses and it’s beautiful leather – such a good wardrobe staple.
I also wanted to share my other favourite items from their collection – the Emmalyn Thigh-High Boots I think are AMAZING. They’re slightly slouchy, which keeps from looking too tight and gives a bit more of an edgy look. I love that they’re in suede and I will be wearing them all the time (with jeans or black tights and a skirt). I have a Chanel pair in grey suede that are almost identical and the style is so versatile that I have been looking for a similar black pair forever with no luck – well not any more! LOVE. I also wanted to mention the The Embroidered Leather Lennox Bag is quite boho and chic, and would make any outfit special. The bag also comes in black or tan (click here or here to buy) which would go with everything.

Now on to my favourite bit of all! everyone knows I just love dressing the girls. Sadly Soleil was at school I wasn’t able to shoot her matching outfit but she LOVES it and i am sure will pop up on my insta soon. I love Ralph Laurent knits, so classic and beautiful..I have been trying to find a picture I have of Soleil wearing this red reindeer knit – see here 8 years ago when she was just 6 months – just such a classic timeless Ralph Lauren piece, just so cute. So I selected these divine knitted ponchos for the girls, Winters is a little oversized buy I just loved it so much – and I think she just looks so adorable and snuggly.
