I bought this mistletoe Christmas jumper weeks ago and have been waiting for the opportunity to wear it. I’m a fully paid-up member of the “Christmas can’t come soon enough” club, but it did feel a little premature to wear it before Bonfire Night. However, last Saturday afternoon was cold, crisp and bright. Poppy and I went for a walk, a Christmas Costa and a mooch around the shops so I deemed it to be the perfect opportunity. It’s a navy cotton mix melange with embroidery and faux pearls and is from Next, who have an excellent selection of festive sweaters in varying degrees of tastefulness. It’s exactly the type of sweater I like. A simple shape with enough about it to liven up a pair of jeans. It’s similar in that sense to the embroidered dandelion sweater I wore recently. Both work equally well with a pleated midi skirt or an A-line mini too.
Mistletoe Christmas Jumper and A Mohair Serape
As I said, it was chilly, so I popped my ecru mohair serape over the top. It never ceases to amaze me just how warm and cosy it is and what a difference it makes. (My pom pom hat, gloves and leopard print ankle boots are from previous seasons by the way). It’s also very versatile and can be styled with all kinds of outfits, both smart and casual.
