Yesterday I popped into my local charity shop in the hope of finding a novelty Christmas Jumper for National Christmas Jumper Day (Friday 14th Dec for Save The Children!). I couldn’t find anything suitable but this find this retro menswear one for a tiny ¬£2.50, which came straight home with me. I wore it today with a simple outfit of black skinny jeans, boots and my leather sleeve parka to go and do a little bit of Christmas shopping. I love mens jumpers as they seem to fit so much nicer than women’s. I’ve said this before I know, but I like my jumpers to be a bit baggy and not cling to the skin, so men’s ones are perfect for me. When my dad saw this one he dug out a load more for me from the back of his wardrobe from when he was younger, including some gorgeous fairilse styles! You’ll no doubt be seeing them on here very soon now that the weather is getting even colder.

Apart from the shopping, today has been pretty chilled out, so I haven’t much else to report! I’m off to spend the evening relaxing in a hot bubble bath, watching X Factor and having an early night. I’ve now announced my giveaway winner over at this post. Thanks so much to everyone who entered. If you didn’t win, don’t worry! There will be more giveaways coming soon!

Hope you’ve all enjoyed the weekend. Let me know what you’ve been up to!

    This parka is AMAZING! It looks so good on. Plus that jumper is amazing. I do not have the talent of hunting for amazing finds in Charity shops. ūüôĀ I wish I did, as that find is so good!

    Definitely going to start looking in the mens section of charity shops. The boots look really nice with what you're wearing. x

    New to your blog but love the jumper. I really should start looking in charity shops more, my jumpers I got for winter this year cost me a ton!
