Fashion // OOTD – Christmas jumpers for Christmas shopping with Mamma Sue

November 14, 2014

One of my favourite things about Christmas is getting to do lots of fun, festive things with my mum. When I was little we’d always drive around to see the Christmas lights and our latest tradition is going Christmas shopping at some of London’s many Christmas fairs. Our favourite fair is the massive Spirit of Christmas Fair, which is held each year at Olympia, and is where we went last weekend. This year the lovely little elves at Matalan sent us a couple of Christmas jumpers to wear to the fair, to help us get well and truly in the Christmas spirit! Thanks guys!


Matalan has so many fabulous varieties of Christmas jumpers to choose from and it was quite hard to pick out our favourites. There’s an amazing array for men, women and children, and range from the garish to the glamorous, and silly to sweet – there really is something for everyone!



I was immediately drawn to this gorgeous black, lightweight Santa Embellished Christmas Jumper* which has SANTA written across the chest in fabulously sparkly sequins. How cute is the little Santa hat on top of the S?! 



I wanted a really simple, minimalist look to really let the embellishment of the jumper stand out, so I paired my Santa jumper with a little black skater skirt, black tights and my trusty croc effect black pumps, for a comfy but cute outfit to take me round the Fair.

My mum loves snow more than anyone I know (and some of my favourite childhood memories are tobogganing with mum, who would never get tired of going back up to the top of the hill for another go!) so it was only fitting that she chose this gorgeous Christmas Fluffy Snow Jumper with multicoloured glittery thread detailing. How cosy does it look?!


Mum teamed her white fluffy jumper with smart navy trousers, her favourite festive Christmas tree necklace and earrings, and the coolest metallic brogues ever! I’ll def be borrowing these when I go home for Christmas! I love her smart/casual style and think the sharp lines of the trousers perfectly balance the soft fuzziness of the jumper.

We had so much fun checking out all of the festive stands and trying out lots of testers in the food section, and got lots of compliments on our Christmas jumpers! My Santa jumper was fab as it reflected all the fairy lights which were strung everywhere and added even more Christmas sparkle to our day! My mum was mega happy too as she was kept so toasty in her Snow jumper, whilst usually she always feels the cold! 






We didn’t buy too much in the end, but have got another Christmas fair coming up this weekend so I’m sure we’ll find some more bits and bobs there, and we’ll definitely be giving our new jazzy new jumpers another outing 😀

Have you got your Christmas jumper for this year yet?
