National Christmas Jumper Day

Ok, I’m going to come clean – I’m not really a Christmas jumper type person. I love fun fashion definitely…but looking like a clown? No thanks! However over the last few years there’s been some gorgeous Christmas jumpers and there’s something so festive about wearing one. And for someone like me thats great!

I also like a good cause and today is Save the Children’s National Christmas Jumper Day. The idea is simple – wear a jumper and make a donation – £2 if you’re and adult and £1 if you’re a kid. After searching everywhere (and not wanting to spend a fortune) I finally found a jumper I liked in the kids section of Store21. If you’re not familiar with Store21 (the old Ethel Austin) check it out – its really got some hidden gems all at bargain prices. It is pretty and girlie, baby blue yet still Christmassy…and I do love a Robin! If you’re a size 10 the age 11-12yrs kids will fit you. No VAT to pay either!
I smartened the look up by wearing a white shirt underneath, skinny jeans and worker style boots.
Look – they are kissing under the mistletoe 🙂


I also added a pair of snowflake earrings to add to the festive look.

Did you take part? Did you go full on Christmas or more muted like me? Whatever way we wore it its still a great way to raise money for a fantastic charity.

To Infinity and Beyond!

The cold weather is very much upon us.  Rather than hibernate I’ve decided to cocoon myself in my infinity scarf.  Got to love a scarf that has no ends LOL!  I have to say I own far too many scarves but I don’t care.  This chunky grey one from New Look goes with so many outfits (or that’s what I’m telling myself)

Feeling Foxy

Love my cute New Look fox jumper…was a purchase early in the year but its perfect to come out again this winter (and probably for many winters till it eventually falls apart!).  The grey with flashes of burnt orange and white works really well with denim and is great for a smart’ish casual daytime look.

I teamed it with Dorothy Perkins Baxter skinny jeans (one of the best stretch skinny fits I’ve found), slouched knee socks and some great vintage style lace up boots I found on eBay.
