Is it me, or is the build up to Christmas always more exciting than the day itself? My absolute favourite festive activity is to mooch around Christmas markets with friends, indulging in mulled wine and endless food most importantly wearing a good Christmas Jumper!

This was the chosen jumper (out of my vasttt collection, eek) for doing our first weekend of Christmas markets at Waddesdon Manor. I love the minimalist approach of this cream knit, with just a hint of sparkle with the gem berries. I chose to continue the festive theme and layered it with a 'candy cane' shirt and festive tartan but kept it wearable by finishing off with blacks and greys.

The 12th December was National Christmas Jumper Day and this always signals the real start of my obsessive knitwear wearing in the run up to the big day! Light-hearted and snuggly, what is not to love about them? How are you wearing your Christmas Jumper this year around? Check out some more of our ideas here at our latest Yahoo #GOTG post :)

With the high street having such a broad range at great prices you can't resist them! I always go for vintage usually when buying xmas jumpers as you are guaranteed no one will have the same! Shop online at Beyond Retro for a huge selection now at 50% off!

I went for this slightly festival H&M jumper which is so warm and cosy! I styled it with a metallic gold mini skirt from Boohoo for a bit of christmas sparkle and my French Connection coat and white fur stole over my shoulder. My red Florian bag worked perfectly with the festive colours and finished of the look with a faux fur hat and jungly Christmas earrings!

Hope you guys are feeling Christmassy and getting involved in the festivities....

Even at Christmas, you can't beat all black everything. There's something so classy and, more importantly, easy with black that can solve any wardrobe dilemma, whatever time of year. But tis' the season for all things sparkly and even the blackest of outfits needs a pop of colour thrown in, even better when its red, green and embellished - How fabulously festive!

I seem to have developed a small obsession for anything with a ring-pull zip recently and I am extra in love with this ribbed dress from Motel. For those who aren't quite brave enough to wear it with tights, layering it over leather trousers or leggings is a great contrast of textures and arguably even more sexy. Teamed with a tailored jacket, this look is spot on for quiet cocktails or dinner with close friends and family. 

Which of our accessories has been your  favourite? I hope it's been getting you into the party mood - don't forget to show us how you're styling up your partywear!

Both Amy and myself already have the summer version of this bag, so when it was on the list from ASOS as one of the bags to style up for this feature- we just couldn't say no! This new colour way is darker and richer and perfect for Christmas parties! It's such a great way to make a statement and jazz up the simplest of outfits with a bang. This clutch is perfect for so many occasions, so if you are after the perfect party clutch check out ASOS full collection HERE!

I think it was fate that this amazing Miss Guided Metallic co-rd arrived on my doorstep the day we were shooting this feature as it goes so perfectly with the clutch bag picking out all the colours seamlessly. Although with an amazing accessory like this clutch you could wear the simplest of outfits and still be best dressed in the party! I styled up the co-ord with a tough leather biker jacket over my shoulders and black chunky heeled boots for a bit of an edge. 

What do you think of the way I styled this clutch? Would love to hear your thoughts...

When it comes to a style challenge, it's sometimes nice to have an actual, well, challenge, and the tiara was certainly a little out of my comfort zone! This to me, is the perfect emergency accessory for those spontaneous, after-work drinks that always pop up around the festive period! Slip one into your desk drawer to add a little glitz to the simplest of wintery day wear when you clock off, or brighten up the office and wear it all day if you're in need of a little christmas cheer!

In December, it's all about the jumpers for me and this lurex topshop thin knit is the ultimate in understated sparkle. Worn with a crisp collar and jeans, this is the cosy work wear we're all in need of and finished off with a big fluffy coat for the commute, this is how to do winter warmers!
