As of tomorrow it’s finally (probably) acceptable to start rocking those festive knits and although I own plenty that hasn’t stopped me browsing.
Twitter introduced me to this fun little company- Crazy Christmas Jumpers which stocks a lovely array of unisex designs priced at a reasonable £29.99. If you and your partner are the same size you could share for different events and it becomes even better value!
These are my personal picks from the website, my favourite being the hot pink number at the top. Who needs traditional jumpers eh? The more fun and out there the better in my eyes!
Have you got your jumper yet? And will you be participating in Christmas Jumper day on December 13th? I’ve signed my workplace up and have been organising from afar whilst off sick. I can’t wait. I love an excuse to do something silly for a good cause.
(and it’s a good excuse to have a little shop at Crazy Christmas Jumpers right?)
I’ve said before that it’s not often you’ll find me doing a lookbook post on the blog. It really takes something to make me want to share it and I can’t quite explain what it is about the AW collection from Jigsaw that’s done it.
Perhaps it’s their ever increasing devotion to British Heritage and their use of rich and timeless tweed and wool fabrics…or maybe it’s the pure Englishness of the wild countryside shots. Either way I’ll shut up and let the pictures do the talking.

What do you think?
Bonus points if you can name the male model!
I may live in a small town where fashion mainly passes us by but with the ever growing love for streetstyle photography and sources of inspiration such as pinterest and of course other blogs even I’ve not managed to escape noticing the humble trainer becoming a bit of a trend.
I’m not really a trainers kind of girl, despite all the photographic evidence to the contrary I still see them reserved for exercise only. As a teen I lived in jeans and trainers but as I’ve grown up my love of the sports shoe has somewhat diminished.
With that said, trainers have come a long way lately and they can quite clearly be used to pull off some super chic looks. I think my problem is my memories of wearing trainers as an every day shoe doesn’t quite tally up with my style these days. Perhaps I need to get myself feeling brave and give this a go…having a mental flick through my wardrobe I can’t quite think how I’d incorporate them just yet but a bit of experimentation is fun and they’ll make a nice change to boots over the winter months- I’ve been having a little browse and quite like this pair.
What are your thoughts on this footwear trend? One you’re embracing or are you quite happy to let it pass you by?

Boots c/o Sarenza
Slowly getting back there with outfit posts although standing posing is even more awkward than my usual awkward style.
I’m so in love with fluffy jumpers this winter. This is the second one I own and it was only £10 from Primark…I’m so planning on picking up more. I went in there on my fifth or sixth hunt for a gorgeous purple colour but ended up falling for this cream version in the end.
Teamed with my cherished Olivia Rubin bargain skirt and these new boots I wore this at the weekend when I was feeling really quite rubbish- feel bad, dress good. That’s my current motto!
I love these boots, flats have been my saviour ever since I broke my foot in Holland so it’s nice to have several pairs I love and can wear on rotation. The quilted detail on the back of these just adds to my love of them. I’m desperate to get back in to heels though!
Things seem to be slowly improving and with only a week to go until our work Christmas Party I’m hoping things carry on with the upwards trend. I refuse to spend another party sat down in flats unable to hit the dance floor…and fingers crossed I can go back to work the following week too. Next week is annual leave for me, long ago booked. Mum and I do it every year and I’m looking forward to some quality and drama free time with her getting ready for the festive fun before the real madness hits- a doctors surgery in December is utter chaos and I’m itching to be in the midst of it.
Stocking fillers are one of my favourite things about Christmas present shopping. Seeking out cute little additions to a main gift or making a hamper or box out of several themed goodies. This year Aspire Style has come up trumps with their range of gifts under a fiver and I’m struggling to think of anyone who wouldn’t love these festive themed yet year round usable treats!
The bath salts and lip balms are all priced at £4.99 and the range consists of favourite festive tipples- I’m a Gin&Tonic girl myself.
The squirrel pen costs £3.99 and really has no place in this post other than it was just too cute not to include!
Aspire Style aren’t just brilliant for gifts either, I’ve found my perfect Christmas Day Dress
It costs £49 but would see me through NYE and other winter gatherings too. Love.
Which of these little gifts would you like to receive?
I think they’d make a lovely main gift with a bottle of said drink packaged with the bath salts and lipbalm….the perfect way to relax after all the festive madness!
