Christmas is finally here! I can safely say that because today we went to see my Mum and it is impossible to go to her house and not come away feeling Christmassy. From the star lights hanging in the window to the tinsel, wreaths, mantelpiece decorations, crackers, Christmas tablecloth, dishes of Quality Street and plates of home made mince pies – it’s all going on in her bungalow. And best of all she’s been to New Look and bought the Christmas pudding jumper that I featured on here not so long ago. Brilliant!
I knew that Mum would appreciate the sparkly skirt look so I wore my navy Topshop skirt together with a roll neck from Cos, a long sleeved top from Cos and Jigsaw shoe boots. Whilst in the car I also wore my Zara sleeveless coat – or long waistcoat – or fur vest – or whatever it’s called. The elasticated waist band on the skirt was very good for accommodating the aforementioned mince pies/quality street etc, which turned out to be quite handy.
As to today’s gift, I picked these Christmas pudding pyjamas up in Asda yesterday. As yet I have no idea whether sequins will be comfortable to sleep in or not. I suspect not but I’m willing to give them a go! At £11 for the set I think that they are a nice little stocking filler. The top doesn’t appear to be available online but there were plenty in store and the tartan pyjama shorts are available online from George at Asda. There are also full length tartan pj trousers for anyone who prefers them.
