There is no escaping Christmas is almost upon us. I must admit I am not that big of a fan. The fuzz, the drama, the lights. Don’t get me wrong, i love spending that day with my family; watching my nieces and nephew unwrapping their presents is priceless. Yet I always experience a sense of relief once we are January when things get back to normal, the days become longer and spring is just a couple of months away. So for me a hint of sarcasm and a smile is never really far away this time of the year. When last month i found this Fair Isle knitted jumper my hart skipped a beat. It was just perfect; perfectly over the top! Slightly reminiscent of Colin Firth’s lovely reindeer jumper in Bridget Jones. I had to have it.
My boyfriend was not that convinced: Are you going to buy that?! The look on his face gave away a mixture of disbelieve and disgust. A classic man-repeller moment (thank god for Leandra Medine her oh so funny blog). All I need is a scarlet red lipstick to top of the look and i’m good to attend any Chirstmas dinner.
