Is anyone feeling festive yet? Last week in New York certainly made me feel in the Christmas spirit, but I feel like it has faded again. I really want to embrace it; put on a Christmas jumper, drink all the mulled wine, wrap presents and watch Home Alone several times. I do love a good Christmas jumper, and although most are quite bulky and chunky to wear, I have found some that a lot more sophisticated and chic in how they look. The dolls at Joanie Clothing have absolutely nailed the chic Christmas trend, and I have picked up some new pieces for the festive season which are not only adorable, but so cute and quirky too.
It’s been more than obvious over the last several Girl In The Mirror posts at just how much I adore a midi skirt. With a highly flattering hemline, and a fit and flare style that cinches in at my waist before skimming my hips, I find them to be a style that looks elegant and makes me feel really grown up. I do love the vintage and retro style of clothing that Joanie Clothing have to offer, and the selection of midi skirts is making me want to hand over my credit card in an instant. I’ve chosen the Edie Tulle skirt, which is just to die for. The double mesh layered skirt is covered with velvet polka dots, and features an exposed zip at the rear with a ribbon waistband. It does run slightly small in sizing as it sits quite high up on the waist but its comfortable non the less. The length of the skirt is shorter than a midi skirt, with the outer mesh layer falling to my knees with the underskirt sitting a few inches above the knee. It’s modest yet still flirty and fun.
A festive jumper is a must for Christmas and I think that I have found the best jumper on the market. Combining my love of Christmas, with my love for prosecco, the Fizz Prosecco Christmas jumper is just fabulous. A classic slim fit jumper, in a fine knit, with cropped sleeves. Rose gold prosecco bubbles sparkle out of the glass which sits next to an embroidered Prosecco Ho Ho design. Its such a fun jumper, and it fits really well with the Edie skirt. There is a special offer on Joanie Clothing where they have 40% off festive faves until Monday at 10am. This means that the jumper that was £35 is now only £21. What a steal.
A fluffy pair of heels were the only shoes that I could team with this cute and quirky outfit. I have been loving my Becky Lace Up heels from Ego recently. I’ve always struggled wearing strappy shoes but these are so comfortable. As the lace up straps can be tied as tight as you need, they stay in the right place on my feet and don’t rub when I walk. I was drawn to them simply because of the fluffy strap, and for the party season, they add that little something extra to an outfit.
To finish off my Christmassy outfit, I have fallen head over heels for this Gift Box Bag from Joanie Clothing. As soon as I saw it, I had to have it! It’s large enough to fit in the essentials for a night out, including my phone and the chain strap means that I can throw it over my shoulder for ease of carrying. Gold and sparkly, it’s a perfect party bag for December, and if you purchase it before Monday, there’s 40% off, making it £18 instead of £30.
I don’t think you can beat having cute and quirky pieces for the Christmas season and with these gorgeous bits, I’m looking forward to each occasion that I can wear them. Don’t forget to check out the 40% off offer at Joanie Clothing, as there are some real bargains to be had.
