It’s absolutely Baltic out! Like, there was snow and ice up at my parents in exotic county Louth. So, naturally like the eejit I am, I’ve been wandering around town without gloves so I can text. I’m amazed I can just about feel my fingers. At least I’ve been wearing jumpers though! I met one of you in the city centre about a month ago and it was pointed out to me that I seem to be the only blogger in Ireland who’s blog is 95% jumpers. What can I say? I’m a creature of comfort! Feck Bali and bikinis, give me woolly jumpers all day long. The shops are absolutely filled with them too, so I presume your wardrobes are also starting to fill with them. Styling jumpers can be strangely difficult because it’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the same thing that you find works. Below, are a few suggestions of styling bit I’ve found work.
So, where did the rainbow jumper come from? Tesco. For less than €20. ‘Tis the season to be saving. You don’t need to spend lots in order to where something a bit different. I picked up the dungaree dress in Penneys for €13. By choosing I looser fit dress, I can fit all my Christmas chunk and chunky knits into the dress. I’m usually a size 6 in Penneys dresses, so I picked up a size 8 in order to get the looser fit.
Pair it with a nice kilt. Mammy picked up this one in Scotland. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen similar patterns in H&M. Speaking of mammy, she also has me warned about wearing coats. I was actually wearing one, I just took it off for the picture because fashion.
This is the same idea, but I’m pairing my boring jumpers with brightly coloured skirts. I actually liked this skirt so much I bought it in 4 colours. Now you can go play a Where’s Wally? skirt game over on my Instagram. I am, despite appearances, wearing tights in this picture. M&S do tights made by the ginger gods for €6. Also I’ve had a pair for 3 months now and still waiting for a rip.
Funky accessories make a jumper. Swap your necklaces for scarves and you’ve got a solid festive look.
Look at this for edgy! Now, I really should be wearing boots with this, but, honestly I was running late and couldn’t find them. By pairing the jumper with these pleather trousers, it’s just added a wee bit more than jeans.
Hopefully you picked up a few geansaí related ideas there! I’ll be sharing lots more blog posts and insta posts over the next while because assignments are in and exams are done. Bring on Christmas!
