It's the most wonderful time of the year...... Christmas! 
What better way to celebrate than by choosing a new outfit.
 
I'm so thrilled to have partnered with Ocean Keys Shopping Centre to bring you 
'A Very Thrifty Christmas'
 
One of the things I love the most about being a stylist / fashion blogger is sourcing outfits that are not just on trend and practical but also affordable.
 
Wanting an outfit that makes you look and feel fabulous is something a lot of women can relate to. When you factor in the cost per wear of an outfit we all want to stretch those dollars further, especially at this time of year!

That's where Ocean Keys Shopping Centre offers affordable Christmas fashion for every event. In today's post I've put together three outfits with items purchased at Ocean Keys Shopping Centre and all for less than $150.

When looking for items for your wardrobe this is my best advice -
Can I wear it for more than one season or occasion
Do I have pieces in my wardrobe that can easily be mixed with it
Does it fit me exactly how I want it to
Do I feel fabulous wearing it! (the most important tip)

If you answered yes to any of these questions then you're on your way to finding the perfect out for you.

For this post I've chosen a wrap dress as the one item that can be styled three ways. I went with a classic navy wrap dress as I like the versatility it offers when adding other items to my look. I also like that a wrap dress is a style that can suit many body shapes and be very flattering. You could of course choose a patterned wrap dress (or any style of dress) and apply the same styling tips...

For example – Heels and statement jewellery look great for a night out whereas the addition of a denim jacket with sandals and a hat will take you to a casual lunch effortlessly.

The wrap dress I'm wearing is a little on the short side (keep in mind I have long legs and a short torso so everything tends to look 'leggy' on me!). If you're not comfortable showing so much leg I would suggest a light denim jean underneath or a ¾ length legging.
 
I really hope you enjoy what I have put together and remember Ocean Keys Shopping Centre is the ideal place to do your Christmas shopping on a budget.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year,
Malinda x
