National Christmas Jumper Day!

Hey Everyone!

So when I think christmas jumper, in my head I'm immediately picturing the famous Bridget Jones scene and we are talking serious cheese!  

Well over the past couple of years the xmas jumper has morphed into something oh so much cooler, and in a sort of hipster dig at ugly jumpers people are now sporting awesome designs and wearing them is really fun and festive! Today I am taking part in National Christmas Jumper Day, which is an event in connection with Save the Children where you can text "WOOLLY" to 70050 to donate £1 (T's and c's)  and sport a xmas jumper of your choice.

I was recently contacted by Simplybe who have kindly provided me with a jumper for the occasion which is in a word, ADORABLE! You can check out their full range here.

I had a choice out a range of super cute designs and I went for the white mittens jumper. The knit is really soft and comfortable and on a freezing cold morning I was nice and cosy. The design itself is simplistic, there is black trim around the neckline and wrists as accents and the mittens look as if they are hanging round your neck in the classic christmassy colours.

The length is really good on me too, with plus size clothing sometimes jumpers can come up short and wide, but the proportions were perfect! I would also say the jumper runs true to size and has a bit of stretch if needed.

I am so chuffed with this jumper and shall be sporting it on xmas day when I'm tucking into my turkey! I can't wait!

What christmas jumpers are you sporting this year? Tell me about them below!

Thanks for reading, Love Sally X



  1. I love this jumper! It looks really good on you. x

  2. I have never liked a Christmas jumper until I saw this one on you. You look amazing. I love this look. :) In Norway it has never been common to wear a Christmas Jumper like this. Maybe because we wear these traditional fairisle patterned jackets called Lusekofte. I have one which I inherit from my mum and I love it.
