This casual festive outfit came about by accident really, but I’m really happy with how it turned out. You see, when Damart offered me an item to review I chose this jumper but in red. However, there was a bit of a mix up with the link I sent over and I received this nude pink version instead. But I’m actually really pleased because it’s such a flattering shade. It’s cashmere so it feels as soft as it looks…it feels heavenly next to the skin.

With the addition of the boots and a rose quartz bracelet I’ve combined four shades of pink with a sprinkle of glitter for a casual festive outfit.

By pure fluke I had this bright pink jacket laid out on the bed. I ordered it from Debenhams in the Black Friday sale but I wasn’t sure if I liked the fit. When I put the jumper next to it I realised they’d look great together.

…this gorgeous cashmere turtleneck jumper will be a great addition to my Spring wardrobe when we naturally move towards softer shades but still need the warmth.

Pink might not be an obvious choice for a Christmas outfit but it makes an equally colourful and cheery alternative to red. Plus, this gorgeous cashmere turtleneck jumper will be a great addition to my Spring wardrobe when we naturally move towards softer shades but still need the warmth. I plan on wearing it with my grey pleated skirt and velvet ankle boots. A festive outfit requires a sprinkle of glitter or sequins so my bargain boots from Asos were christened in the snow. I bought them for less than £20 – they are still on sale but currently marked down to £30 (from £45). The price seems to fluctuate so keep an eye on them if you’re interested because it might drop again.

Coincidentally, the last time I wore these jeans on the blog I was explaining why I reject the idea of age-related fashion rules.

I’ve got to admit that I’m always in a dilemma when wearing skinny jeans and ankle boots. There seems to be a rule that you should cuff your jeans (rather than tuck them in). That’s all fine with plain denim, but a bit trickier with coated leather-look jeans. At least to me, but then you all know what I think about fashion rules 😉 Coincidentally, the last time I wore these jeans on the blog I was explaining why I reject the idea of age-related fashion rules. In any case, after trying them different ways I decided I preferred them turned up. Nevertheless, if at any time in the future I want to wear skinny jeans tucked inside my ankle boots I certainly will. So there!

Rather than a big bag I chose my new Sakura crossbody bag that Jennifer Hamley kindly sent to me. You know how much I love my Model KT workbags (seen herehere and here) so I was delighted to add this to my collection. It also has a detachable wrist strap so you can wear it two ways. It’s big enough to hold the essentials – phone, cards, keys – so it would be perfect for parties when you don’t want to dance around your handbag! Do you remember doing that? 🙂

Thanks so much to everyone who has joined in my new Sunday Reflections link up and for your lovely comments. I had to pluck up some courage to write that post so your supportive messages really mean a lot 🙂

    The two pinks look great together. The boots complete the look perfectly. I’m wondering if you’re as cold as I was the other day taking photos?! What we do huh? xx

    Emma, Love this outfit on you! The pink is so perfect with your complexion and i love the soft pink sweater under the jacket. Those jeans are HOT on you, very rock and roll! I say pooey to the rules as well, and never quite know what to do with the ankle boots with a skinny jean… those booties are so fun and festive too, and your bag is lovely.
    Have a great week!

    Hi, Emma! I just found your blog via Julie from Gingerphotog. Your blog is just so pretty. As for your outfit, I’m all about those sparkly ankle boots. They are super cute!

    I’ve never been a fan of pink, but as I have gotten older I have been drawn towards it more. I guess having 2 little girls adds to that! #brlliantblogposts

    Love the shades of pink and those booties too. They’re perfect!!!

    Hello, Emma.

    I have been an avid reader and a fan of your blog for a long time. You never fail to amaze me with your fashion. My favorite piece is the bargain boots with those sparkles.

    Emma, what an utterly fabulous outfit. Especially those boots. They’d charm the elves right out of Santa’s workshop.
