Fairisle mad

Up north has witnessed the first Winter snowflakes and so it has got me a festive & cosy mood. Winter is my favourite time of year; with dark nights, cold air, log fires, snuggly clothes and lots of eating who can resist loving Christmas?! Apart from Scrooge, obvs.
This season has seen a massive rise in Fairisle items, ranging from leggings to gloves and many more items. It's cute, it's festive, it's warm and fashionable - it's perfect for this time of the year. 
Fairisle isn't for everyone and the constant worry is what to wear it with in order to take the look from a 'knitted granny present' to 'season must have'. I thought I would show you all a few pieces I have been lusting after and what I would pair them with. 

poncho: ebay
leggings: matalan
shoes: newlook

skirt: ebay
top: asos
shoes: topshop

leggings: ebay
top: topshop
shoes: h&m

For those who prefer a more subtle Fairisle item then these pieces are made just for you, and all at reasonable prices of course!
hat: ebay
snood: ebay
slippers: ebay
gloves: ebay

So there you have it, my take on Fairisle this Winter season. Let me know what you think girls!

Love you all,
