When I think of winter, I think soft candy greens and sparkling silvers, all topped off with a bit of snow!

Santas Coming! 8 of the Best Christmas Jumpers

I am normally anti anything Christmas before December, but the phrase ‘if you can’t beat em, join em’ comes to mind.  It’s just EVERYWHERE already.

So yes, rather than fight it, I will just join in with the holiday cheer, that little bit too early.

Christmas jumpers

Last year I decided I wanted a Christmas jumper a few days before Christmas day, when you couldn’t get one anywhere.  So this year I’ve been on the look out early to ensure I get my Christmas jumper!

I thought I would share my favourites with you below.  Please let me know if you find any other good ones!

If you had a spare £200…

My friend recently won a competition, and the prize was £200 gift card for ANY chosen shop.  How exciting!  I made lots of suggestions and urged her to treat herself, but in the end she opted for a DIY store so she could make some home improvements.  What!?!?!?

I’m sure you can relate to my disappointment on behalf of said friend, who I believe should have splurged it all on a handbag or glam pair of shoes.  Anyway, when she was asking for my advice initially, it was quite enjoyable to think about what I would do if it were mine.

After toying with my imaginary gift card, I settled for Topshop.  I would just like to add that at no point did a DIY/supermarket/home textiles store cross my mind as an option.

So here’s what I would buy from Topshop….

Leaf Embellished Vest £40.00

Super Cosy Winter Knitwear

The temperature has dropped dramatically in the past week and I definitely wasn’t prepared for it!  It’s not quite cold enough to dig out the big winter coat, but chilly enough to add a few more layers.

I love nothing better than to wrap up in a chunky cardigan or cosy jumper in winter, so have been looking for some great buys.

Here’s what I love:

Engagement shoot

The weather is absolutely AWFUL at the moment and we still haven’t had a chance to shoot our engagement session.  The other half jokingly suggested we hire a vintage car for the shoot and he couldn’t believe his luck when I said why not!  So we have picked a day and pray for a little bit of sunshine.

I have been in my element “styling” us for the shoot and have gone for a vintage feel to match the car.  The first outfit is a peachy pink lace and pleat dress complimented by a sequin butterfly scarf – both from Oasis.

The second outfit is a pretty floral print shift dress by Therapy at House of Fraser which I will dress down with a cropped denim jacket from H&M.
