I also have an OOTD for you today:) This is what I wore to (another!!) roast dinner with my family, this time we met up with my other Aunt. Sorry the pics aren't great, I just used my little Sony Cybershot for these, & had to use the flash because it was dark by the time we left.

Skirt - ASOS Top - South Cardigan - Dorothy Perkins Capelet - Miss Selfridge Shoes - New Look Watch - DIYed Rings - Evans & Primark
My sister Charlotte came over in the morning to exchange gifts & then she took the doggies home with her to babysite them as it would have been too manic at my Aunt's with them. Charlotte didn't want to come, so she had to cook her own dinner for her & Dad, which I dearly would have liked to have seen, lol!
I even managed to persuade her to have her photo taken with me, a rare occurence, hehe!
Anyway, off to spend some time with my family now,

What I wore to walk around in the snow taking photos. Wellingtons don't really go, but they are very practical for the snow! The coat is one I got last year, in the Next sale, for a mere £15 reduced from £50! I am eagerly anticipating this year's sale, Next always have unbelievably good sales, everything is half price or even less. They don't offer a huge plus size range, but some of their current stock is quite nice, & I have my eye on a few pieces, & am hoping they go on sale & I can get them for a steal!
I can't believe it's less than 5 days till Christmas now. This year has gone by ridiculously quickly! I am looking forward to Christmas day though, will be hopefully at my Aunt's, with most of my family. That's if we don't get trapped by the snow, there is supposed to be more over the next few days - eek! If we don't make it on Christmas day, hopefully we will still make it the Tuesday after Christmas, where we will be meeting up with the whole family at my Grandparent's. We always celebrate twice each year, because it's hard for everyone to get together on the same day, esp when all my cousins have other grandparents who also want to spend Christmas with them. I only have the one set, so we've nearly always spent the day with at least them. One of the present's I ordered hasn't arrived though - I am quite worried now! I ordered 2 dvds for each of my uncles from HMV on the 5th of Dec, & only one has arrived. It was posted from Guernsey, so eeek! Idk why they just didn't ship them together? Everyone else's are basically done & wrapped now!
What are you doing for Christmas?

We had more snow today, a lot more snow! We went out this morning to get "emergency supplies" for Christmas Dinner, just incase the snow carries on coming & we get stranded at home & can't make it to my Aunt's, where we are planning to spend the day. When we left there was snow on the ground, but not too much, & it had stopped snowing. By the time we left the shops there was several inches on the ground & even the main roads were covered. It took us 2 hours to make a 15 minute journey, along with some shouting, much stress, a few tears & some help pushing the car up a hill. Haha! Once we got home though, I just got into pjs & snuggled up on the sofa, enjoying the warmth!
Mr Socks was also glad to be warm & cosy indoors!

Jumper - ASOS Lace Dress - Evans Boots - ASOS Fur Trim Socks - Topshop Ring - Miss Selfridge Bow - New Look Necklace - ASOS
This is what I'm wearing today. Nice & cosy, since it's still freezing, but also cute. This jumper is actually from ASOS main range, this is a size 18, which i'm obviously not, but it's still pretty large on me, when I would normally wear a 26 in knitwear. So definately try out sizes smaller, you never know if they will work or not. The jumper I wore in my last OOTD was an 18 also, & whilst more fitted, it still worked for me.
Also, don't you think my socks are such a good idea? They are normal socks, but with a fur trim. This way I can look like I have fur trim boots, & plain boots, without actually buying 2 pairs of boots. They also keep my ankles very warm, hehe!
