Festive Family Fun With Fat Face

We've been very fortunate to have had such a fun year and working with brands such as FAT FACE have been the icing on my blog cake.  Having enjoyed wearing a number of Fat Face outfits over the Spring and Summer, I was excited to be approached again to collaborate on a more seasonal feature.  With Halloween and Bonfire Night both behind us I feel it's an appropriate time to start thinking about ... Christmas.  

With initial thoughts of Val Doonican springing to mind, the humble Christmas jumper has over recent years been given a luxury make-over with designers such as Macqueen, Burberry and Sonia Rykiel embracing the festive knitwear trend.  Along with the purchase of a new pair of Christmas pyjamas each December, as well as festive bedding, we have also succumbed on Christmas Eve (in addition to the occasional office party) to the Christmas jumper!  Ideal as fun stocking fillers or as a family Christmas day tradition Fat Face have a cute selection this winter.

Now available online and in store, Chris, Luca and I were kindly invited to choose a piece of knitwear each to style with existing pieces from our existing wardrobe.

With a love of rollnecks and fairisle I chose the FESTIVE DEER ROLLNECK which I styled with a new pair of Topshop Jamie High Waisted Jeans and my red Hunter boots.  

Chris decided on the ALTA PLACEMENT CREW NECK  in Woodland, worn with Gap Straight Leg Jeans, Howie Plaid Shirt and Northface Gilet.

Luca fell for the skiing Polar Bear - which was very appropriate as I discovered this week I have been chosen as an Ambassador for Crystal Ski Holidays to review a winter holiday!

SKIING POLAR BEAR JUMPER Luca also wearing Next Gray Chinos (this season), 'London' print wellies from John Lewis (this season) and a gilet from Lilly & Sid (previous season).  

Never one to be left out of a family occasion we dug out Alfie's Santa jumper and wrapped up for a walk through the local countryside.  Luca making friends along the way and the dog misbehaving as usual.  Despite the rain we stayed cosy in our new knitwear and I will be packing the jumpers when we head off for the slopes later this season.  With skiing on my mind I treated us to a pair of suitably festive FAT FACE SOCKS and have spied some very cute hand warmers and ski themed winter accessories (which have been added to my Christmas list to 'Santa')!     

It had to be done - we warmed up on the sofa and finished the afternoon off with a Christmas movie, coffee and mince pies.  

It all went down hill from there as the dog stole a mince pie and in my haste to rescue it from him, dropped my own and then stood on it in my new socks!

Hope you have all had a fun weekend - how is your Christmas shopping going?  Do you have a family tradition of Christmas jumpers?

Our jumpers were kindly gifted from Fat Face and I treated us to our Fat Face socks.  Thank you Alexandra and Fat Face we really enjoy working with you.
