Today is my sisters birthday which always signifies the start of Christmas in our household - the decorations are never allowed to go up until after her birthday has been celebrated! So, to celebrate her birthday and get us in the mood we had a right festive day out today and it was lovely!
If you have read my blog before you'll know that I am not a big fan of winter - I hate coldness and I hate having to wear lots of layers! However, when Fashion World offered to send me a jumper from their knitwear range (It goes up to a size 38, how good is that!?) I thought I'd give it a go. I went for this fluffy texure jumper, simply because it is SO cute! I actually sized up twice just because I wanted the big, baggy oversize effect and I have to say I loved it!
I wore it over an old stock ASOS prom dress and I think it worked perfectly. The ASOS dress itself only has a vest top at the top, so I knew that wearing this massive, fluffy jumper with it wouldn't be too much! I stayed lovely and warm while I was outside, without being a hot, sweaty mess on the inside.
In the end we went to a farm to see some animals (including reindeer), a garden centre with some beautiful Christmas decorations and had a roast dinner (complete with pigs in blankets on the way home). It was perfect! This jumper is the idea compromise for winter for me and I can definitely see that I'm going to get a lot of wear out of it!
Fashion World seem to be getting right into the Christmas spirit, with this app online that allows you to create and send an e-card to your loved ones!
I knew that Fashion World went up to a size 32, but I have to say I didn't realise that they went up to a size 38... absolutely brilliant news in my eyes!
