The festive season is here!!!
Streets are brighter than the moon (thanks for the metaphor Katy Perry), bobble hats and fur coats are spotted at every corner, the 'snood' is making a comeback, supermarket shelves are stacked with mince pies and turkeys and it becomes acceptable to eat chocolate every day for breakfast (dairy milk advent calendar always).
Also, the words 'warm' and 'sweet' become terms we can temporarily associate with getting crunk and not just with our grandma. Mulled wine is the one.
So in true Christmas spirit, I recently went "Christmas Jumper shopping". This is a thing...we all know it. Christmas jumpers are great for two reasons:
1) They speed up the 'what do I wear' process ten fold. Whack it out, throw it on, and best of all, have an excuse for the cheap novelty statement piece you're rocking that day...It's Christmas baby and if I want to dress like a Christmas pudding I will #WORD
2) They hide that dreaded Christmas Day food baby. Come to think of it, they hide the general seasonal tum which tends to develop amid the several Christmas parties, Winter Wonderland trips, pub times and movie nights (most likely Love Actually with homemade pudding and hot chocolate at the ready). The Christmas period is just one big celebration. It's what Jesus would have wanted.
This year I bagged not one but two knitted balls of joy so obviously felt the need to share with y'alll in case, ya know, you've been hiding under a rock all season and have yet to pick yours up.
1) The Disney Jumper
I spotted this in Primark and knew it had to be mine. It felt only right that during Christmas the Adam and Eve of Disney remained close to my heart. And, I know I'm no Minnie Mouse guys, but the big gold hair bow brings me one step closer (I also feel like this is something ma bae Ariana Grande would wear which made it twice as appealing).
