The 12 outfits of Christmas – Boxing Day – shiny new white converse and “Robin” the jumper


After wearing heels all day yesterday, and with two young nephews here for the day, there was only one footwear choice for me and that was the shiny new white Converse that I had for Christmas from Schuh. Now I know that it’s really uncool to keep them white and that they should be trashed asap but I plan on keeping mine as white as possible for as long as possible – even if that means using the whitener that we used on our Dunlop Green Flash trainers when we were at school.

I’ve known for a while that the white converse were on their way on Christmas day, together with the nephews on Boxing day, so I asked a friend of mine if I could borrow her Robin Jumper from French Connection to wear on here with jeans and a white shirt.  As I’ve mentioned before, he has a definite pink breast as opposed to a red one – just in case you were wondering. As he’s not mine for keeps he will be flying his way back home tomorrow though, which is very sad…

Later on in the day we headed out for an emergency battery run/let’s give the boys a run, trip. So, for that I swapped the converse for Seven Boot Lane Abella boots (now £120 instead of £175), GAP hat and Whistles parka.

The thought of doing any sale shopping, either in store or on-line, just doesn’t appeal right now, although my sister in law has just told me that she can get 50% off at Net a Porter all year round. Eeek, that could be dangerous!
