Christmas Jumper Day..

Julita Dress: Louche via Lilac Rose
So, in case you have spent as much of your time asleep lately a I have (physical exhaustion is no fun, guys, my body is basically just like "nope" to everything I try to do of late), you might not be aware that tomorrow is this year's Christmas Jumper Day - an annual event to raise money for Save the Children.

I'm not a huge Christmas fan, but one thing I'm always happy to get on board with is dressing for a theme, so I was thrilled to receive a festive jumper in the post the other day. Sadly I wasn't able to make it to the #JohnLewisChristmas event (the sorry state of our public transport system makes it impossible to go to things in London after work hours if I want to get home on the same day!) where everyone was able to customise their jumpers to add even more festive charm to them.

Shoes: Kate Spade x Keds // Handbag: Radley
To add to the festive vibe, I hunted out my snowy scene Radley bag, and wore this dress, yet again. I feel as though the snowy print of trees and deer makes it more wintry than overtly Christmas, so I've been wearing it a lot over the past few weeks. It's the same shape as this dress, which I've worn rather a lot over the past few years, so as soon as I tried it on I knew I was onto a winner.

Thick tights and glittery trainers were a must for a day which went straight from the office to an evening ice skating and exploring the German market.

Frankly this star print is probably the perfect kind of Christmas jumper for me - I'm not really into those tacky slogan ones, or anything with pom poms, lights or tinsel stuck on..Whatever you look for in yours, there's still time to get your hands on one if you move quickly. I know that Voucherbox have put together a list of Christmas discount codes, including 10% off at Zalando, and that this Joanie beauty can be with you tomorrow if you order before 3pm. 

Star Jumper: John Lewis*

Will you be getting involved in Christmas Jumper Day? We've got a bake sale planned, so I've been spending every spare minute (not many of those about lately!) this week rolling out pastry for mince pies.

  1. I thought I was set for Christmas jumper day with my usual Gingerbread one but my work colleague just texted me saying hers hasn't arrived and can I bring one in for her so I'm pondering what I can do as I should just give her my one. Maybe I can DIY something tonight...x
