Christmas Finds From Penneys

Yes, we can all officially use the C-word now that it's November. This is good news for me because I love Christmas and the build up to it is pretty fantastic too. At the moment all the shops are starting to get their stock in for the festive season but as I'm saving at the moment, I can't real indulge in anything too spendy. Step forward, Penneys. The solution to and cause of many of life's financial woes. In store, you'll find lots of the now traditional, tacky Christmas jumpers for 12 Pubs etc but they also have several different fairisle style woolly numbers like this:


For me, this is just on the wearable side of nerd chic so I'll be rocking this with a mini skirt, thick tights and Winter boots. For those with a bolder style sense, they also have skirt versions of these- handy if you enjoy sipping hot chocolate and pretending you're on the ski slopes somewhere, and not in fact on O' Connell St.


Lastly, Christmas would not be Christmas without an added shot of tack and obviously the best way to achieve that is with a pair of novelty slippers. They have a pretty good selection of cosy footwear in there at the moment so if you want to pick up a pair as a stocking filler for a loved one or for yourself to get into the spirit of things then you could do worse than these. 

Have you done any Christmas shopping yet or is it just me being a big mad early bird?!

  8. Having to send gifts overseas means you have to start your Christmas shopping early. I don't mind at all as I love the festive season and all that goes with it (well, almost all - could do without crowds and Christmas ads). It is lovely in England though, when it get darker and there are Christmas lights and robins and holly and all the proper things. New Zealand Christmas's in summer just weren't the same.

  9. I'm soooo glad you've made a Christmas post - it was only last night I was listening to This Is Christmas by Emmy The Great and Tim Wheeler and feeling guilty for blasting on the Xmas tunes so early. I'm such a Christmas addict, I'm like a big child!

    Thanks for sharing your Penney's finds - I must head in some day to make some festive purchases. What can I say, I love the cheese! :D The jumper looks great! x
