11 Tips On Buying And Wearing The Perfect Christmas Jumper...


I love Christmas novelty jumpers. 

We all love Christmas jumpers.

Every year me and the children have to have a new novelty Jumper. Something festive, something fun, something to celebrate Christmas. Not yet convinced the hubby to wear one, but all the rest of us love them. 

My 2nd eldest son was first off the mark this year, as he had a jumper delivered last week. Getting ready for December and 'Christmas jumper Friday'. 

 Last year I was sorting all the children out and forgot to buy the fun and cheery one I loved until the middle of December. Great my favourite jumper had sold out !! the only ones I could find were two sizes too small or two sizes too big!! In the end I went for the larger sized one..( It made me look thin when I took it off!) Remember this one?

When New Look offered to gift me my favourite Christmas jumper I was over the moon, a chance to get my hand on a jumper I love nice and early.

With only one small question, which style to go for!?!


I picked this Pale Blue Sequin Santa Christmas Jumper... 

How sweet is this one!?! 

With the lovely Santa on it ..

11 Top Tips On Buying And Wearing The Perfect Christmas Jumper...
  1. Buy nice and early!?! November is perfect. Before your favourite designs or sizes sell out!
  2. Have a spare morning visiting the shops. Take a good look at all your favourite shops and see which styles, colour, pattern you like.
  3. Not got time to shop? Open up all new windows of your favourite shops on the internet, type in the search box 'Christmas jumper' and the page will show you all the Christmas jumpers they sell.
  4. Think of what colour jeans/trouser/leggings/skirts you already own so you can match your jumper up to.
  5. Search Christmas jumpers on Google and see what jumpers people have been wearing, with which style bottoms.
  6. Think of where you will be wearing it to get an idea of how to dress it up. Party's? Home? Work?School? Shopping? Days out? Walk in the park? Pub? Cinema? Meal out?
  7. Which pattern and style will you really like to wear all December? Santa? Animals? Snowflakes? Christmas trees? Christmas pudding? Rudolph? Snowman? Tree lights? Penguin? Advent? Elf? Gingerbread man? Holly? just to name a few ideas, lol...
  8. Wear it as early as you like. Make it look like a different outfit by styling it with different  clothes~ jeans, legging, skirts ...Get the most wear out of it this year before January when it will be time to pack it away for next year.
  9. Do not get carried away! It is so easy to buy lots.. they are so sweet. {If I had money, I would buy them all}...
  10. Have fun and enjoy wearing it, this is what they are all about... 
  11.  Have a 'Christmas jumper Friday' at home throughout December, invite friends round, make mince pies and drink Sherry!...Yummy, now this sounds great... Cheers...

Polka dot shirt ~ Tesco F & F
Belt ~ New Look ~ via Car Boot Sale
Skirt ~ Car Boot Sale
Shoes ~ Cath Kidston

Not 1, not 2 but triple polka dots for me yesterday!!

You may have guessed I love polka dots so I tried mixing them up for a spot of shopping. With a mile and half walk in town to catch the train into Nottingham to meet my husband from work, I needed comfy shoes on too.

When you have no spare money you see lots of things you want to buy then when you have some you do not see nothing!! yesterday I tried to spend the rest of my birthday money!?!

 Tried but my husband paid, yeah I'm not complaining I still have my money for another day!!


 I brought lots of little things including my new sweet Care bear Pjs lol

We let the kids decide where they wanted to eat, so we ended up in MacDonald's for a big Mac and chocolate milkshake...


After a walk round the shops we jumped into the car to watch my eldest son run a track race in Derby, yeah I watched my 2 oldest boys run this week, and on Wednesday my youngest son has been invited to a fastest kid in town race so I cant wait to watch this too...
