Subtly sparkly

Ho ho ho! Etc.

I am very excited about Christmas- food, drink, presents, SLEEP- what's not to like? However, there's one trend I just can't get into this year.....the Christmas Jumper. When did it become acceptable to leave the house looking like Bill Cosby? (Who am I kidding- I love Bill Cosby).




Anyway, let's forget about Bill for now. I may not be a fan of the Christmas jumper, but I do hate to be left out and I DO like a bit of glitz. Enter the Simply Be Jewel Trim Jumper:

A bit pricey at £45, but along came a sale at Marisota and it went straight into my basket!






I really love it- it's so warm and cosy, and I love the way the light shines off the little jewels- the photos on the Simply Be site don't do it justice really. I bought a 16/18 which is just about okay for me as I prefer it to be fitted. 

When I came into the house my mum said 'you look like an elf' so maybe I haven't avoided the dreaded Christmas jumper after all!
